PAX Australia 2021 has been cancelled for the second year in a row due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the impact it has on Australia.

In a post shared on their social media platforms this morning, the official PAX account said:

“At the start of the year, we were optimistic that’d we’d all be able to come together in person this October [….] but due to the ongoing impact of COVID-19 in Australia, the next edition of PAX Aus will now take place in 2022. Our thoughts are with our PAX community and everyone who helps us to deliver this incredible vent each year.”

The reaction online has been mostly of understanding and shared sadness in the news. For many, the writing was on the wall that PAX may get cancelled this year as Australia’s COVID-19 cases are only growing on a daily basis, and our vaccination facilities and numbers simply aren’t where they should be.

PAX Australia has promised that those who purchased tickets would be getting a full refund, and will be receiving specific information on that process in the next 7-days.

The PAX Aus Team will be working together to make PAX Aus Online a big community event later this year and has said that information on that will be coming sometime soon.

We’ll look forward to seeing you at PAX Australia 2022.
