Will access to Bonython Park/Tulya Wodli be affected during the event?

Access will be restricted during the set up and pull down phases of both Soundwave and Future Music Festival from Sunday 24 February 2013 to Friday 15 March 2013.  Alternative pedestrian and cyclist routes will be provided and sign posted before these closures.

On the event days for both Soundwave and Future Music marshals will be positioned at key detour points to inform path users of the alternative routes.

The cycle path along the southern side of the River Torrens through Bonython Park/Tulya Wodli will be available throughout this period apart from the two event days – Saturday 2 March 2013 (Soundwave) and Monday 11 March 2013 (Future Music Festival).

Will it cost to attend the event?

Soundwave is a ticketed event with the average ticket cost set at approximately $150.

How will the Park Lands be protected during their stay?

In addition to the standard requirements under the event lease, Soundwave 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 Stereosonic has committed to undertaking the following Park Lands protection measures:
•    Track matting for 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?

Soundwave 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, the letter will detail the event times and contact information for complaints or queries. 

We will also be appointing independent acoustic engineers to ensure compliance with acceptable noise levels.

Is parking available at the event site?

No public car parking is provided for this event, event organisers actively promote public transport. The event site is adjacent to several tram stops and event organisers arrange additional tram services on the event day.

The old netball courts in Bonython Park/Tulya Wodli are utilised by the event organisers for management and crew parking.

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.

We discourage any event from promoting their event 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.
