    How will the Park Lands be protected during their stay?

    In addition to the standard requirements under the event licence, the event organisers 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 Events South Australia has committed to undertaking the following Park Lands protection measures:
    • Hand watering will occur during the occupancy period.
    • Temporary buildings and structures will be elevated off the surface of the grass to minimise impact on the turfed areas of the Park Lands.

    Can I expect noise where I live?

    The event must comply with the Adelaide City Council’s Event Noise Mitigation Standard Operating Procedures for temporary multi-day venues. The event has limited external amplified music or announcements in the park outside of the venues.

    A letter box drop to residents and affected businesses two weeks prior to the event will detail the event and a process for any complaints.
