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, 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 parking available at the event site?

U-Park will operate a car parkin Tampawardli (Park 24) on performance days. The car parking fee will be in line with the endorsed rate for commercial event parking on the Park Lands.

Can I expect noise where I live?

Some minor noise is anticipated. Predicted noise levels are within accepted guidelines for an event of this nature.

Cirque du Soleil will be required to develop a Noise Management Plan in line with Adelaide City Council’s Noise Mitigation Standard Operating Procedures.

Note: Adelaide City Council’s Noise Mitigation Standard Operating Procedures are currently under review and will be presented to Council on 8 July 2014.

Residents and businesses 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 enquiries.

How will the Park Lands be protected during their stay?

Cirque du Soleil 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 and the Environmental Management Plan for Tampawardli (Park 24).

Cirque du Soleil will also use of track or other geotextile matting in high traffic areas as appropriate. The event will be responsible for restoring the park to its original condition at the end of the lease period.

Will it cost to attend the event?

The event is only accessible for paying customers.

The nominated adult ticket price for this event ranges between $74 and $175 for standard tickets and $325 - $345 for VIP tickets.
Discounted rates apply for children aged 2 – 12 years, seniors, full time students and group bookings.

Will access to Tampawardli (Park 24) be affected during the event?

 Public access to ‘The Plateau’ in Tampawardli (Park 24) will be restricted during setup and pull down in the interest of public safety and to maintain site security.

During the performance season, the on-site box office will be open to the general public for two hours prior to each performance. Outside of this time, the event site will be closed to the general public in the interest of public safety and to maintain site security.

Pedestrian and cyclist access to the shared use pathway adjacent to Sir Donald Bradman Drive will be maintained throughout the lease period. During set up and pull down, traffic marshals will be on site at the points where the vehicle access paths to ‘The Plateau’ cross the shared use path to ensure pedestrian and cyclist safety.
