What is the situation with children attending the festival?

Children under the age of 15 years are welcome to come to the festival though please be aware that they must be accompanied by an adult to enter the festival site.
Festival staff will not allow children to enter or exit the event grounds unless they are in the care of a responsible adult.

Full price tickets commence at the age of 15. These tickets allow a 15, 16 or 17 year old access into the Festival by him/herself and he/she will be able to enter and access the arena without the supervision of an adult. A proof of age card will however be required. The wristband worn by the under 18 year old will clearly indicate that this person is underage and cannot purchase alcohol at the festival.

Do you have facilities for the disabled?
People with a disability are welcome at Gorgeous Festival. Please note;
1. We will provide a disabled only viewing platform for the mainstage.
2. A disabled toilet will be located close to this platform.
3. The surface of the site is largely grass and may not be the easiest to wheel wheelchairs on.
4. If you are attending with a carer your carer will be granted entry on showing their carers card. You still need a valid entry ticket.

Is there seating at the festival?

The VIP Bar tickets come with limited seating. All other general admission areas have no seating provided. Patrons are welcome to bring chairs as follows;

Low, ground-level beach chairs and rugs may be used in the front section of the venue. Higher beach chairs, e.g. those with seats 35cm off the ground, must be placed at the sides or to the rear. Please use your common sense as we don’t want any patron to miss seeing the stage. Eg please don’t place high chairs in front of someone sitting on a rug…you get the idea…

How many stages are there?
Gorgeous Festival has two stages. The Gorgeous Stage and the McLaren Stage.

Can we bring food and drink into the festival?
