To ensure the safety of all attendees, this Youth policy is part of Wanderer Festivals’ Conditions Of Entry.

Youth ticketholders (13-17 yo) must be accompanied by a parent or adult guardian with a festival ticket. Youth ticketholders with camping tickets must camp with their parent/guardian (preferable over 25 years old). 

Child ticketholders (12 and under) must be accompanied by a parent or adult guardian when entering the site and at all times at the event. Child ticketholders with camping tickets must camp with their parent/guardian (preferable over 25 years old). 

A maximum of 3 youth patrons (13-17) may be accompanied by a single responsible adult guardian.   

Youth who attend without a parent/guardian will not be able to enter the event. 

If youth patrons do not comply with Ticket Terms & Conditions, Conditions of Entry or direction from the Wanderer team, the minor and their guardian may be expelled from the event. You will also be banned for one year, as per the local accord.  This includes underage drinking, consuming illegal substances and disruptive behaviour that impacts on the enjoyment and safety of the wider festival community.

No, you will not be required to prove your identity at this year’s event, however the person using the ticket will need to carry identification to prove they are 18+ (if using an adult ticket).

All camping areas are no vehicle pass-outs. This is an important part of our commitment to the environment and community amenity. All campgrounds are 2WD suitable, however campers, caravans and motorhomes will be camped in a dedicated campground.

Families will be directed to family campgrounds, large vehicles / towing vehicles will be directed to the caravan campground and all others will be directed to the general Wanderer campgrounds. A shuttle bus will run on Saturday and Sunday for campers wanting to go into town or to the beach and return to site.

You will be given a wristband upon arrival, allowing you to enter and exit the festival and pass through the main arena and campgrounds. Please ensure your wristband remains on your wrist for the duration of the event.

Our tickets are issued via Moshtix and are processed in groups, so there is sometimes a short delay. If you haven’t received your e-tickets within 2 days, please email us at [email protected] with your full name, email address and contact number. Please make sure you check your junk folder.
