A person who attended the Golden Plains music festival over the Labour Day long weekend has been diagnosed with coronavirus.

The person, who recently returned from overseas, developed symptoms on Sunday and has tested positive for COVID-19, according to the ABC.

A spokesperson from the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services said the department was aware of the case and contact tracing is currently underway.

"Due to the outdoor nature of the festival the risk of transmission is low," the spokesperson told Broadsheet. "More information about this case will be available tomorrow when the details of Victorian COVID-19 cases will be updated.”

The annual festival is held near the Victorian town of Meredith and typically attracts more than 10,000 festival-goers, as well as large number of staff and volunteers.

Iconic US band the Pixies headlined the festival and has postponed the rest of their Australian tour citing “current public health concerns” on their Facebok page.

The band said the wellbeing of their fans was their top priority and has promised to reschedule shows Brisbane, Sydney and Perth.

Yesterday Hobart arts festival Dark Mofo announced the cancellation of the event due to concerns around Coronavirus.

The Victorian Department of Health and Human Services has set up a hotline for people seeking information on COVID-19 but warned large quantities of calls would likely result in delays.

More information on the symptoms and transmission of the disease can be found on the department's website.
