Car Passes

As well as your Festival Ticket you will require a pre-purchased Car Pass if you plan to drive to the festival site. You will need a pre-purchased car pass whether you are camping on site or just parking for the day. This has been introduced to create more space onsite, the number of passes available each day is capped and car-pooling is highly encouraged. It’s also better for Mother Nature. Check out some handy tips below that we recommend reading through. To purchase car passes click HERE

BAG AND VEHICLE SEARCH 

There will be both bag and vehicle searches upon entry to the festival site and this process will likely cause some delays. Every vehicle headed to the campgrounds will be checked at some point during the entry process. Please be patient and make it an opportunity to say hello to the people next to you. These procedures are necessary for everyone’s safety so please take it in your stride and work with the event and security staff to make the process as easy and quick as possible.  We thank you for your support and patience. Check out bag sizes HERE

Car Pass Types

CAMP WITH CAR 

Camp With Car Pass allows you to camp alongside your standard size car. Please ensure your car pass is valid for your entry date; once parked you will NOT be able to move your vehicle until Thursday 03 Jan exit day. *Only those holding a 3 Day Festival Ticket and a Camping Ticket will be permitted entry to the campgrounds* 

CAMP WITHOUT CAR 

Camp Without Car Pass allows you to park your car and walk your equipment to a separate camping area, a good option for people who need to leave the festival earlier than Thursday 03 Jan.  The upside of this car pass is you have more flexibility with your departure time. Please ensure your car pass is valid for your entry date; once parked you will NOT be able to move your vehicle until the day you wish to leave the festival. Your car will NOT be admitted back into the event once it drives out. *Only those holding a 3 Day Festival Ticket and a Camping Ticket will be permitted entry to the campgrounds* 

Please note: Patrons booked with FLASH CAMP or RENT A TENT will also need to purchase a CAMP WITHOUT CAR Pass if driving a vehicle to the festival. *You will still need to purchase a Camping Ticket per person*

BIG RIG 

Big Rig passes are for caravans, cars with trailers, RVs, campervans - any vehicles that are 4 berth or larger than 6 metres. You will be camped in the same area as the Camp With Car Pass holders. Please ensure your Big Rig Pass is valid for your entry date; once parked you will NOT be able to move your vehicle until Thursday 03 Jan exit day. *Only those holding a 3 Day Festival Ticket and a Camping Ticket will be permitted entry to the campgrounds* 

Please note: Campervans up to 7.5m and caravans up to 6m in length are OK. Anyone intending to bring vehicles or caravans larger than this will need to check with us first via [email protected]
