Police & sniffer dogs maybe randomly roaming the entrance and throughout the festival.
Bag searches will be undertaken before you are allowed into the festival. If you are found with alcohol or other illegal or prohibited items you may be refused entrance.
Farmer & The Owl festival is a licensed venue. This means the same rules apply as when you are in a pub or nightclub. RSA regulations mean that you may be refused entry or removed from the event if you show signs of intoxication, aggressive or antisocial behaviour.

IS THE FESTIVAL SITE ACCESSIBLE?

The site location of MacCabe Park is partially flat and majority is grass. This event has been designed with disabled access in mind. However due to the large hill in the middle of the site, uneven surfaces and boggy turf this may make access difficult at times and may prevent people with a disability to access the whole event, so we recommend attending the event with a friend or carer. Existing paved pathways within MacCabe park will be utilized where possible as thoroughfares and an accessible viewing area will be located next to the sound desk in front of main stage.

There will be a reserved drop-off/pick-up zone for patrons with a disability. This will be located next to the entrance, which is on Keira Street.
We have made a number of provisions to ensure our events are accessible to all. These include provision of a complimentary carer ticket, accessible entrance lanes and accessible toilet facilities (all careers must hold a valid NSW companion card). On show day our customer service staff will be available if you need assistance in accessing the concert site.


WHAT PAYMENT METHODS ARE AVAILABLE?

Farmer & The Owl Festival will have cash or Eftpos facilities available at all bars and stalls.
ATMs will also be available inside the event.

WHAT HAPPENS IF I LOSE MY WRISTBAND?

Your wristband becomes your ticket. There is no reason you should lose your wristband and wristbands cannot be replaced… So look after it! Anyone found without a wristband will be escorted from the festival by security.

CAN I LEAVE THE FESTIVAL & COME BACK IN?

There are ‘NO PASSOUTS’, meaning you will not be able to leave and re-enter the festival later that day. This is a restriction enforced on certain licensed venues by the NSW department of Liquor, Gaming and Racing.
Make sure you dress appropriately for the weather and take everything that you require into the concert when you first arrive.

WILL THERE BE A CLOAK ROOM?

There will be no cloak room at this event.

CAN I BRING MY OWN WATER BOTTLE?

Farmer & The Owl is committed to the ongoing reduction of single use plastic waste and litter
We will be partnering with Plastic Free Wollongong to reduce single use plastics at the festival. This means we will not be selling plastic bottled water and that we are encouraging patrons to bring their own drink bottles for water (your bottle must be empty on arrival).
Free water stations and bubblers will be available throughout the festival site to keep you hydrated.
