The uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic's future impact on live performances has led to an annual Wollongong music festival being pushed back to next year.
Organisers are also preparing for the possibility that this edition of the festival, if it goes ahead, may not feature any international acts.
Co-organiser Ben Tillman said they'd had imminent plans to announce the dates for Yours & Owls 2020 to take place on the October long weekend, as they have done for the past few years.
However, with so much uncertainty, they have decided to move their dates for the Stuart Park event to January 23 and 24, 2021 to give them the best chance of the festival going ahead.
"We're just doing what we think is the safest option really," Mr Tillman said.
"Obviously everything's up in the air and lot of uncertainty at the moment... We didn't want to put all our plans into something that we just weren't confident about.
"We just don't have any clear guidelines or timeframes from anyone in a government role... We wanted to remain flexible with what we're doing, but also have some solid plans in place.
"We wanted to roll it out with a certain degree of professionalism, and it's hard to do that if you don't have certainty around your dates."
Mr Tillman said it was "uncertain" whether it would be logistically possible for the festival to feature international acts if it does go ahead in January.
"For the sake of our planning, there are still some international acts that are a part of the conversation," he said.
"But we're just flagging with everybody that the likelihood... It's very likely that we're not going to be able to have them in the country.
"So we are making plans to move ahead. We're just prepared to have an all-Australian line-up if that's what we have to do."
Mr Tillman said they are conscious of the costs that come along with planning to attend the festival and the amount of organisation punters put in to spend the weekend at the event.
"We want to ensure we plan the festival at a date that gives it the best chance of actually happening," he said.
"With the current situation we are all in, we don't feel in any way confident that will be a possibility in early October."
Organisers say the line-up will be released soon, advising punters to follow their social media to find out.
