Max Watts Closure
Written by Miss J on October 24, 2017
Max Watts has officially closed this month in a statement, saying that they were “regretfully … unable to reach ongoing terms with the landlord, making it unfeasible to continue to invest in the venue”.
If you had a concert booked at this venue, make sure to check your emails for the change of venue details. Here’s a few that have already been moved:
Here is the full statement:
Max Watt’s has announced their decision to close the Brisbane venue following the Dillinger gig on October 22nd. Regretfully Max Watt’s were unable to reach ongoing terms with the landlord making it unfeasible to continue to invest in the venue.
Booker, Jesse Barbera, has worked closely with promoters and agents of forward bookings and will continue to support all bookings and holds into venues with appropriate capacities without any need to change dates.
Oztix will advise ticket holders in this smooth process of change. Max Watt’s will ensure that any other ticketing agencies provide the same service to their customers
Although this has been a very difficult decision, Max Watt’s has acted to strengthen the integrity and sound operations of the Melbourne and Sydney venues. Brisbane is a smaller market with aggressive competition and higher costs. Max Watt’s is redirecting focus to invest in the success of iconic Melbourne and progressive Sydney Max Watt’s venues. This decision will enhance rather than risk the security of Melbourne and Sydney.
