Our General Admission section is an option for those who don’t require standard seats and enjoy feeling the grass between their toes. The General Admission section welcomes picnic blankets and beach chairs (please make sure your chairs legs are not any higher than 20cm).

If chairs are allowed, only low beach chairs with a leg height of no more than 20cm off the ground will be let into the venue. No standard BYO folding chairs (full height folding chairs) are allowed in at any concert. Beach chairs may be available for purchase from the venue on the day (Subject to availability)

If weather conditions deem dangerous for the artist to perform or put the patron’s safety is at risk, the promoter may cancel the concert and issue a refund.

What do I wear?

Our concert space loves swallowing heels and as it is grass underfoot, we would advise you wear comfortable flat shoes. Also, because we are an open air venue we would suggest to dress for the occasion. Depending on the season you may need to bring with you a warm coat, water proof jacket, rain poncho or gumboots.

Always remember to slip, slop slap because even though it may be overcast the UV rays can still break through the clouds. In the event of wet weather please remember that umbrellas are not allowed.

What time does the music start?

The gate open time does not reflect the time in which the music begins. The time the main act, and support act/s take the stage varies and is dependent on the Promoter, Artist/s and the weather conditions. Set times will be advertised as soon as they are available and will usually be listed on the ticketing agency’s website a couple of days before the concert.

There is time between when the gates open and when the music starts to allow patrons leisurely access without having to queue for long periods beforehand.

We will do our best to advise you of the set times however the lead up time in which the Promoter announces the set list is not our responsibility. We will advertise the list on our Social Media platforms as soon as it has been finalised.

What disabled facilities do you have?

Accessible parking is available near the main entry point to the Hotel and Concert. You will be directed to the accessible parking spaces by our Traffic Marshals.

Can I visit your Bottle Shop at the concert?
