Will access to Rymill Park / Mullawirrapurka be affected during the event?

Access to the licenced area will be restricted from Monday 2 February to Wednesday 18 March 2015. Paths within the licenced area will remain open to park users between the hours of 6:00am and 6:00pm. After 6:00pm the paths will be closed for the event to ensure the safety of public and event staff. Where pathways are blocked an alternate route will be indicated.

Will it cost to attend the event?

This is a ticketed event with prices for different elements ranging from $15 - $150. Tickets will be for sale at the event and through FringeTix.

Can I expect noise where I live?

The event must also comply with the Adelaide City Council’s Event Noise Mitigation Standard Operating Procedures for Temporary Multi-day Venues. As a part of this the event organiser is required to provide a Noise Management Plan as a part of their licence documentation.

The event organiser has planned for all amplified music will be limited to the indoor venues after 11:00pm. 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.

How will the Park Lands be protected during their stay?

In addition to the standard requirements under the event licence, the event organiser 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 the event has committed to undertaking the following Park Lands protection measures:

  • Track matting in place for vehicle movements;
  • Installation on paved area only on Rymill Island;
  • Hand watering of the event lawn throughout the site occupation;
  • Protection of turf from cooking fats, oils and ice.

Is parking available at the event site?

No on-site parking is provided for this event, however many on-street and off-street options exist nearby. Public transport is also available in the vicinity of this event.

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 and the application.

Adelaide City Council discourages any event from promotions prior to Council approval. In some instances, particularly participation in annual festivals, there is a need for organisers to register their events by a certain date and be listed on in the festival program. This however does not constitute Council approval for the event.
