Will access to Bonython Park/ Tulya Wardli be affected during the event?

Access will be restricted during the set up and pull down phases of the event and during the event from Thursday 23 January 2014 to Thursday 6 February 2014. Alternate routes will be provided for pedestrians and cyclists and will be sign posted in advance of these closures.

The cycle path along the southern side of the River Torrens through Bonython Park/Tulya Wardli will be available throughout this period except for the event day, Friday 31 January 2014.

How will the Park Lands be protected during their stay?

In addition to the standard requirements under the event lease, the event organiser will be responsible for minimising impacts on the Park Lands by following Council’s Standard Operating Procedures for Events in the Park Lands.

The event will be responsible for restoring the park to its original condition at the end of the event.

Specifically Big Day Out has committed to undertaking the following Park Lands protection measures:

  • Flooring will be utilised in high traffic areas
  • A hand watering schedule of grass.
  • Internal Traffic management plan implemented

Can I expect noise where I live?

Big Day Out is required to abide by a Noise Mitigation plan for this event. Residents in surrounding areas will be notified by the event organiser via a mail drop at least two weeks prior to the event detailing sound check times, event times and contact information for complaints or queries. Council will also be appointing an independent acoustic engineer to ensure compliance with acceptable noise levels.

I have already seen a poster or advertisement for this event. Has it already been approved?

Approval for an event requiring public consultation is only given after the consultation period has concluded and Council has had the opportunity to review any submissions.

Council discourages any event from promotions prior to our approval. In some instances, particularly national tours, there is a need for events to announce dates in each capital city. This however does not constitute Council approval for the event.

Is there an alternative way to provide my feedback?

The Consultation Packs (which contains the project information and submission form) are available at our customer, libraries and community centres.

You can also provide your feedback by writing to us,
