How To Get There

Entry for campers will be via the Western Gate accessible from Railway Tce, off Aldinga Road between the hours of 12noon to 12midnight Friday and 6am to 12noon on Saturday. You will need to pay your camping fees to the gate attendant and someone will also guide you to a camping site. Please be aware that camping space is very limited and you are asked to camp as close as possible to other campers and not take up more space than necessary. There should be enough space between the trees to accommodate two campsites.


Camping is available for Friday and Saturday nights only - camping is not available on Thursday or Sunday nights. Due to the limitations of space the oval surrounds will be required to accommodate campervans & caravans. If you only have a tent, please camp on the western end of the oval itself that has been cordoned off for camping purposes. There are no powered sites so you will need to be entirely self-sufficient. Dogs and pets are NOT permitted in the Festival Arena.

Please follow the directions of the gate attendant as there is limited space and we are trying to accommodate the needs of all campers. All tents should be erected in the space reserved on the oval wherever possible to allow enough space around the oval for campervans. Space has been allocated for caravans in the area between the Young Performers Marquee and Aldinga Road. Please watch out for pedestrians (especially kids!) and be mindful of not blocking any access road.

Due to the high demand to camp on-site at the Festival campsites will only be available on a first-come, first-served basis and it will not be possible to pre-book any sites.



The entrance gate will be closed to vehicles outside of the above-mentioned hours. If you need to move your vehicle in the event of an emergency, please inform a volunteer at the Festival Information Booth who will arrange for someone to unlock the gate.


Camping fees are $20 per person. You can save an extra $5 by purchasing an Earlybird weekend camping ticket online at Oztix by 30 September. Toilet and shower facilities are available at the Football Club western change rooms at all times and in the Stadium (before 10am only). With water shortages please use sparingly – take short showers.


Due to licensing regulations no liquor may be brought into the Festival Site, including the camping area. All liquor purchased must be consumed within the Festival Site. The Festival Site is a glass-free zone for the weekend.


Vehicles may be parked around the perimeter of the oval – not alongside your tent please. Please do not obstruct the roadways as access by service vehicles is needed at all times. In the event of an overwhelming demand for camping space, you may be asked to park your vehicle (campervans & caravans excepted) outside the festival site. There is extra parking space in Railway Tce within easy walking distance in view of the camping area.

The Festival is being run entirely by a limited number of volunteers who will be doing their best to look after you – please be patient with them – and have a great festival!
