Will access to Karrawirra (Park 12) – South bank be affected during the event?

    Access to the licenced area will be restricted from Saturday 14 February to Thursday 19 March 2015. Where pathways are blocked an alternate route will be indicated.

    Will it cost to attend the event?

    The event will be free prior to 8.00pm. After this time a $14 entry fee will be applicable. Tickets will be for sale at the event or through FringeTix.

    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:

    • Temporary surfaces to reduce impact from vehicle movement;
    • Installation of decking to be installed in food service areas;
    • Defined areas where event vehicles will not be permitted;
    • Hand watering of the event lawn throughout the site occupation.

    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.

    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.

    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.
