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.

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…
