HOW TO GET THERE
Where is it?
Thornton, Victoria. 2 Hours North East of Melbourne. Head for the Rubicon Hotel Thornton VIC and follow the signs. The address will be emailed with the final welcome info a few days before the festival.
Car passes have been introduced to encourage carpooling but also to help us plan the space. Once the event breaks even and becomes sustainable the car pass will be donated to local community groups and or charities.
We want everyone to arrive at the event and home safely. Plan your trip, designate a driver and stay safe. Victoria Police will be running operations arriving and leaving the event. Patrons must leave by 12pm on the 2nd of January, Blow Me First will be operating from the 1st of January to ensure you are safe to drive before leaving.
We like carpooling and responsible drivers, if you are looking for a ride or know of any awesome ones, use our facebook page to find travel buddies for the adventure ahead.
Motor homes, vans, camper trailers are all permitted, larger vehicles may be directed to camp in designated large vehicle camping.
For fire safety, gas bottles attached to caravans, trailers & campervans will be held at the gates and returned when you leave. Gas bottles within motorhomes and current gas compliance plate are permitted to stay with the vehicle.
Pass-outs are permitted between 11:00am and 4:00pm only. There is no driving on festival or camp areas during the event, any cars wishing to use a pass out will have to be parked at the camp perimeter. Anyone caught driving on the event site will be evicted. We take no driving on site seriously for everyone’s safety.
Anyone arriving after sundown will be required to park in the day parking area and carry their tent in to the camping area.
Please remember that everything that comes with you must leave with you! We welcome couches and funky theme camps, but we are a small crew of volunteers that run this event so please leave no trace.
Not driving is awesome too, buses run daily from Melbourne to Thornton (the local town), from here we have shuttle buses to take you up to the festival site.
