Will the event undertake any environmentally sustainable practices?
The event will promote the use of public transport and cycling as a means to attend the event.
Event organisers have indicated they will be working with their waste management contractor and onsite suppliers with an aim to divert all waste away from landfill. They plan to include a 5 bin recycling system onsite and include both, public and participant education on recycling options.
Festival organisers are aiming to reduce the events environmental impact by implementing available technologies in solar power, including utilising house power units.
Organisers have also indicated they will investigate low flow toilets, reducing water consumption by caterers and other water saving measures.
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 the application and any submissions.
Adelaide City Council discourages any event from promoting their event prior to Council approval. In some instances there is a need for events or festivals to announce dates in each capital city. This however does not constitute Council approval for the event.
Is parking available at the event site?
On-site parking is not provided for this event. The closest public parking to this event is along Rundle Road, Bartels Road, East Terrace and Dequetteville Terrace. Other public parking options are available throughout the east end district of Adelaide.
Public transport options are available in the area where the event is proposed to be staged.
Can I expect noise where I live?
