THE TOWN GUIDE
The Town will be inhabited from May 3rd - 6th. Thank you so much to those interested for being a part of this vision, both creatively and sustainably. We are almost at our fifth incarnation of The Town! <3 Here is some must know information for all Town residents.
Driving in: Due to fires in the area there is a lot more animals on the windy roads coming in. Please drive very slow, make sure your tires are up to scratch, and pay attention. We have already had a crew car skid off the road (in a safe spot) due to a wombat. Be alert and safe and don't distract your driver.
Walk in camping: All camps except Vanland are walk in camping. We will do our best to assist but please pack light and keep it to essentials. Thanks for your understanding as this makes for a way better festival!
Vibes: The Town is a family friendly and sustainable festival. It’s focus is on community and connection opposed to hedonism. We want to foster a truly healthy community and we appreciate your help with this and partying smart. <3
Program: Full program of music and events is here
Tickets on door: We do expect to have tickets available on the door. But we don't have many tickets left so selling out before then is still possible. We recommend buying in advance to be safe 🙂
Dogs: No dogs allowed as requested by venue.
Kids: The Town is a family friendly festival so please be mindful of this at all times. The Town needs to be looked after for the future littles ones just liked the real world does. Conduct yourself with fun and respect and lead by example for a positive future. <3
Car Passes: If you are planning on bringing your car to site you must purchase a car pass with your ticket. Car passes are $20 each. Please travel light and carpool. This is essential to make sure we all fit and to keep our festivals sustainable. Here is our carpooling page to help you find or offer a ride.
Trailers, Busses + caravans We only allow regular cars and small vans on the event site due to space limitations and logistics. There is a caravan park next door though, Licola Caravan Park, that is taking bookings. Trailers are okay if for decor for theming campsite.
Sustainability: Please read the Sustainability Guide and bring a cup, plate and crockery, zero disposable waste, and focus on sustainable partying and good vibes. Thank you so much in advance, this is a really important part of the event. Please also take all your rubbish home with you at end of the event too and do a Moop sweep.
Safe Travels: We have the awesome DanceWize crew holding down the Safe Travel agency and promoting safe partying. If someone looks like they need assistance for any reason, please assist them to there. If it is a medical situation, please go straight to First Aid.
Carpooling: Carpooling page here. Please take time to post if you have room as it will really help people out 🙂

Tickets: Please bring your tickets downloaded on phone for scanning on door (no reception). Bring ID and arrive with friends if you purchased multiple tickets.

Camping: The idea is to setup your own little houses within the village! On arrival you will receive your suburbs wristband and directions from our lovely concierge team. All suburbs are walk in to create the best and safest vibe, we will do our best to assist with transport but please be prepared. Don't forget to BYO mailbox.
Food + Gas Stoves: Vegalicious, Psybus and Fern and Wishbone will be serving delicious healthy food all weekend. Gas Stoves are allowed in low wind conditions (under 15 kph), fully attended at all times, and 3 metres from any tents or material.
Alcohol: We allow BYO but please ask you keep it to a reasonable level and do not drink excessively. A permit requirement is that we have control over how much alcohol people bring in. Please make our job easier by not arriving with excessive amounts, or security may have to confiscate.
Glass: NO GLASS is allowed on site so please decanter your liquids into plastic or other non breakable containers. All glass will be confiscated at the gate by security. This is to make sure The Town is a safe space for everyone.
Ice + General Store: Available from Licola General Store, 30 second walk from the site. Please take time to support these awesome locals and buy one thing from the store.
Fire: We will have safe set up fire pits, overseen by our Town Fire Crew (TFA). Please do not light your own fires under any circumstances. Adding logs to fires once they are going is okay. If you are a skilled fire twirler, please visit the inductions happening each day at the Fire Circle. Only those with inducted wristbands can spin each night.
Passouts: Please visit the General Store and support the local business however there are no vehicle pass-outs during festival. Please do not drive around the site during the event either for any reason.
Costumes/theatrics: Okay… Time to get fun, setup your house and mailbox, step into character, play games, interact, create skits, gift presents and share the love. This event is a playground and we want you to not just play in it, but be a part of the creation.
Next to sustainability, this is what this event is all about. We have so many amazing things planned are excited to see what you all come up with too. We will see you all up on site beautiful people. Let’s lead the way in creativity and sustainable partying and make this one to remember, setting the tone for what we as a community are capable of.
Huge love <3
