Festival moves to January with many ways to participate
The Coastal Twist Festival has been moved to January due to coronavirus restrictions, but will continue over the October long weekend in future years, according to organisers.
"Pushing the festival out by almost four months meant we could forge ahead and keep everyone safe with adjusted plans," said creative director Ms Glitta Supernova.
This time the Coastal Twist Festival will be "a midsummer five-day, all ages, accessible free and ticketed festival from January 19 to 23".
"It's important that we continue with the positive momentum already generated toward a more visibly equitable and welcoming community which is part of the planet as global citizens."
Ms Supernova said there were many ways to be involved, through the festival website.
"Enlist your pooch in the Puparazzi Pooch Parade.
"Enter the surf event.
"Become a sponsor or volunteer.
"Have a stall at our community fair day.
"Apply to enter the art show.
"Enter your business in the window display competition or have your own event as part of our Twisted Experiences."
She said: "This festival is continuing the work for disarming the thinking that difference is somehow bad.
"Difference is not only normal but the biological basis of every living and breathing thing.
"No matter who you are or where you're from, we welcome you to sign up, frock up and rock up."
