Camping:

We are hosting you on some prime, comfy earth, some of Victoria’s finest for sleeping on. Although it is comfy we suggest pitching a tent for the night at our vast camp site.

There is ample room so pick a spot near or far from the sound systems to find what works for you. we also advise not camping under any trees as falling branches can surprise you in a damaging way.

We as Rabbit Hole festival goers are your local community. It is on all of us to do right by our fellow campers in order for all of us to HAVE A SICK TIME. WE ENCOURAGE THE SPREADING OF GOOD WILL AND HELPING ONE ANOTHER OUT. AT THE SAME TIME WE WANT TO HIGHLY DISCOURAGE PEOPLE FROM THE OPPOSITE, COME AND HAVE FUN INSTEAD OF BEING A DICK!

Rabbit Hole Festival

PARKING:

AS YOU ENTER THE FESTIVAL PLEASE BE MINDFUL OF PEOPLE AROUND YOU ALONG WITH PHYSICAL STRUCTURES, LIKE STUFF YA KNOW. WHEN YOU FIND YOUR PERFECT CARPARK THERE IS A STRICT NO DRIVING POLICY DURING THE HOURS OF OPERATION OF THE FESTIVAL SO PLEASE LEAVE IT THERE. THIS IS TO HELP WITH THE SAFETY OF PATRONS THROUGHOUT THE FESTIVAL SITE.

A MAXIMUM SPEED LIMIT OF 5KM/HR WILL BE STRICTLY ENFORCED WITH RULE BREAKERS HAVING THEIR TIME AT THE FESTIVAL CUT SHORT.

For the safety of all patrons and staff the following items are prohibited on site. The following items will be confiscated from patrons if found in possession. IF FOUND WITH DANGEROUS OR LOTS OF PROHIBITED ITEMS YOU MAY BE ESCORTED FROM THE VENUE.

Pass Outs:

ALTHOUGH WE ENCOURAGE SUPPORTING THE LOCAL TOWNSHIPS THERE ARE NO PASS OUTS

Phone Reception & Electricity:

In the lovely shire of Merton you can expect to have full reception. But that should be kinda irrelevant because the only thing phones should be used for is taking photos (and coasters..?)

THERE WILL BE PLENTY OF LIGHTING THROUGHOUT THE VENUE SO DON'T WORRY ABOUT BRINGING CARROTS. HOWEVER NO ELECTRICITY WILL BE PROVIDED TO CAMPSITES, THIS IS A TIME TO GET AWAY FROM ALL YOUR DAILY ELECTRICAL HABITS AND GET BACK TO NATURE. I'M SURE YOU OR ONE OF YOUR FRIENDS OR EVEN A KINDLY STRANGER WOULD BE WILLING TO CHARGE PHONES AND BLOW UP MATTRESSES.

Police:

The local police station is aware of the event.

Safety and Security:

no fires. and we mean no fires. once again, no fires.
this includes candles, camp fires, gas burners and lanterns, camp stoves, fireworks and lighters.
hang on you can have a lighter. but that is it!

No glass. shards are not cool. glass really hurts, especially when stepped on. park it and leave it.

Once your car enters the P position and the engine is switched off that is where the car will stay for the entirety of the festival. with so many people about having a great time it would be a shame to ruin it with an unfortunate incident.

any patrons found in violation of any of these rules risk being issued with a fine or potentially thrown out of the festival.

security will be present at all times throughout the event so leave your attitudes at home.

Set Times:

Set times will be released closer to the date
