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

Access will be restricted during the set up and pull down phases of from Monday 3 March 2014 to Sunday 16 March 2014.
A short section of the Park Lands Trail adjacent to the event site will be impacted during this period. Vehicle movements will be managed to ensure pedestrian and cyclist safety while using the trail. Council approved advanced notification signage will be installed.

How will the Park Lands be protected during their stay?

In addition to the standard requirements under the event lease, the Future Music Festival 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 Future Music Festival has committed to undertaking the following Park Lands protection measures:

  • Track matting or temporary surfaces to reduce vehicle impacts
  • Fencing around significant trees
  • Watering schedule throughout the event duration
  • Areas where event vehicles will not be permitted
  • Internal Traffic management plan implemented.

Can I expect noise where I live?

Future Music Festival 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. Adelaide City 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.
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 there an alternative way to provide my feedback?

Yes, alternatively you can write to us. Hardcopy Consultations Packs which contains the Submission Form and background information are available from any of our Customer, Libraries and Community Centres.

All written submissions must be received by 5pm on Tuesday 30 July 2013 and should be addressed to:

Community Consultation
