Torrential rain caused coordinators of an Illawarra music festival to postpone the event last weekend. The Artsville Unhatched Festival was to have featured more than 30 artists at The Arthouse Cafe in Port Kembla.

The festival had already been delayed due to the pandemic but was ready to go after NSW eased COVID restrictions and had live music artists and fans excited to be back.

However, the recent rain has seen the event again delayed, this time until the ANZAC Day weekend.
