A popular music Queensland festival has been cancelled due to coronavirus.
Organisers of Woodford Folk Fest took to social media on Friday to announce it would not be going ahead.
'It feels so surreal to be writing those words,' the social media post read.
'We have been hinting at this for weeks now, however we wanted to be able to share some good news at the same time.'

Woodford Folk Fest isn't the first musical festival to be cancelled in 2020 due to coronavirus
Bill Hauritz, Festival and Executive Director of Woodfordia, said:'Our team have spent a lot of this year hopeful that we could do a scaled down version of Woodford, but the more we studied, the more impossible it became.
We can never meet reasonable guidelines rightly imposed by authorities to make it safe in this Covid-19 world.'
Organisers announced a new camping holiday would take place in September instead of the Woodford Folk Festival.
Bushtime is a five day and night camping holiday held between September 19 to 23 and September 26 to 30 where people will be able to go bush walking, biking and have picnics in secluded spots.
Minister for the Arts Leeanne Enoch said the reimagined version would provide jobs and the Queensland Government supported it.
