Security

Security will be present from Thursday afternoon and will be conducting thorough car searches to prevent any of our banned items (hyperlink to banned items on event info page) from getting within the campsite. Upon reasonable and formal request, police, security and/or campsite management have the right to search you, your car or your campsite for public safety and risk mitigation reasons.

If any banned substances (alcohol, drugs etc.) are found in your car or possession, they will be confiscated immediately.

Site Allocations

If you would like to camp with your friends, you MUST arrive with them. Overly elaborate campsites are discouraged, so you will be asked to downsize if you arrive with enough gear to re-create your lounge room.

Safe Camping

To keep safe while at the festival, we ask that you follow these simple guidelines:

  • Refrain from camping under trees
  • Refrain from climbing trees
  • If you come across any insects or wildlife (snakes, spiders etc), do not approach – find the nearest staff member or security
First Aid

If you require medical attention, please see one of our medical and First Aid Tents. These will be located near the entrance of the campgrounds for the entirety of the event (including the night before and night after the festival).

If you have any prescription medication that needs to be specially stored please see the medical team immediately upon arrival.

Cooking & Fires

We have a strict no fire policy at Mountain Sounds Festival. For this reason, there will be no portable stoves or cooktops allowed into the campgrounds. Snacks will be permitted, and there will be plenty of food stalls available.

Showers & Toilets

Portable warm showers will be available at the campsite for patron use. They will be located in the middle of the campsite so they can be accessed easily throughout the event. Please plan your shower trips as there may be queues and hot water may be limited at times. You are required to bring your own soaps and toiletries to the campsite. Showers will be open 24hrs except for when they need to be serviced and cleaned.

Portaloos will be available around the campsite for patron use. There will be multiple toilet locations so they can be accessed easily throughout the campsite area. Public urination and improper conduct will result in ejection from the campsite, event and police fines.

Please be considerate to the environment and other patrons when using these!
