Will access to Elder Park be affected during the event?

The Adelaide Festival Venue infrastructure will not block existing pathways during the event so thoroughfare will be maintained for pedestrians and cyclists.
Traffic marshals will be onsite during set up and pull down to ensure pedestrian and cyclist safety while using pathways.

Will it cost to attend the event?

Access is free for all visitors.


How will the Park Lands be protected during their stay?

In addition to the standard requirements under the event lease, Adelaide Festival Corporation will be responsible for minimising impacts on the Park Lands by following Adelaide City 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 Adelaide Festival has committed to undertaking the following Park Lands protection measures:

  • Vehicles to keep to roads were possible and minimise vehicle movements on grassed areas.
  • Implement tree protection zones as directed by Council staff.

Can I expect noise where I live?

The Adelaide Festival Venue 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 the event times and contact information for complaints or queries.  

Amplified pre-recorded music may be played at a low level. No loud music acts or DJ’s will perform at this event.


Is parking available at the event site?

No on-site parking is provided for this event, however off-street parking options exist nearby.  

Public transport options in the vicinity of this event location are widely available.

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.

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