Mistress Mallice, producer of Australia's largest alternative and LGBTIQA+ lifestyle festival - Oz Kink Fest - has announced that the 2021 schedule has been postponed to March 2022.
The schedule moves in light of the ongoing restrictions imposed upon Melbourne and surrounds amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Oz Kink Fest is one of the world's largest fetish-inclusive celebrations, and Australia's premier annual event for both seasoned kinksters and those purely curious about what goes on behind closed doors.
2021 would have marked the 15th anniversary of the festival, if it were to go ahead as planned for the original dates of October 11 - 25.
The new dates of March 11 - 21 in 2022 will surely be an even bigger reason to celebrate, once the state of Victoria hits its vaccination targets and social distancing rules begin to ease.
Every year Oz Kink Fest hosts a myriad of events that are extremely popular with both the local and interstate crowd - often bringing in international acts for its showcase events of the Fetish Expo, Hellfire Resurrection and Klub Kunst.
