Camping at Fairbridge 2024
Limited camping tickets available soon – Book early so you don’t miss out
We have a range of camping options available this year including glamping and cosy camping (our pre-pitched tent options) as well as bring your own tents, caravans, camper trailers and campervan options! All sites are unpowered, but drinking water will be available on site (please bring a water bottle to refill). Portable toilets and showers are also provided.
Festival & Camping tickets give access to the campground from 8am Friday 5 April 2024. Access to the festival precinct from the campground opens at 12 noon Friday 5 April 2024
New – Campground Vehicle Pass
In an effort to reduce the number of vehicles and our carbon footprint, we have introduced a vehicle pass ticket. This will be required for any vehicle entering the campground where you can then park your vehicle next to your chosen spot. Carpool with friends and save!
The entrance is located midway along the field from Paterson Rd only, where a temporary access point to this privately owned property brings you into the heart of the campground.
Gates to the festival campgrounds open 8.00am Friday 5 April 2024 and there is strictly no public access prior to this date and time.
Fairbridge Festival 2024 has established separate campground and festival precincts, with the Murray River as the natural boundary. To facilitate movement between these areas, a pedestrian river crossing will be provided, although this access will require the use of stairs due to the steep bank on the camping precinct side of the river. This crossing serves as the exclusive direct link between the campground and festival precincts. The distance from the camping precinct to the festival precinct is approximately 300m via the river crossing and stairs (5 min walk). The distance from the camping precinct to the festival precinct via Paterson Road, avoiding the stairs and river crossing, is approximately 900m (15 min walk).
Our campground is temporary and is used for livestock at other times. While the grounds are suitable for camping and campers, at this early stage in planning, we do not believe the site is suitable for people with mobility issues or requiring access assistance. While the last thing we want to do is exclude anybody, especially with the festivals background in this regard, this is not Fairbridge Village. Therefore, we want to be transparent with where we are at the time of writing this document. We are working towards solutions in this regard but feel it best to be open with the limitations of this site.
Our campgrounds need to accommodate many people so please be mindful of others and conserve space wherever possible. Please restrict the number of vehicles in the campgrounds by ride sharing or using public transport where possible. Please do not drive around the campground once you have set-up your campsite. There will be a no vehicle movement rule in place. Once parked, vehicles cannot be moved until midday Sunday (unless in an emergency or for ACROD customers). Lighting will be provided however only in certain areas therefore it is advised that campers bring their own lighting both camp lights and personal lighting as well as solar chargers or battery charging devices.
Drinking water is available on site. Please bring a water bottle to refill.
Portable toilets and showers are provided. Please be considerate of your fellow festival lovers when using the shower facilities. A quick shower is a good shower!
All sites are unpowered, the use of generators is discouraged, however, we know some newer models are very quiet. If you find it essential to use a generator, please consider your camping neighbours and operate for minimal periods of time.
Campfires are not permitted in the campground; this includes fire pits. Gas stoves will be accepted depending on weather conditions. Please be aware of local fire and weather warnings.
No animals are allowed on the campgrounds (with the exception of Guide Dogs and accredited Assistance Dogs), please leave your pets at home.
Consider your camping gear carefully. You are creating a temporary home at your camp for the weekend. It may be a retreat from the festival precinct, as well as a place to crash at the end of the day. If you don’t have a tent, consider hiring a caravan, camper trailer, or campervan. And if you don’t want the hassle at all? Cosy Camping or Glamping could be for you!
No Venturing Outside of Designated Campground
It is imperative that festival attendees remain within the designated camping areas and refrain from crossing fence lines into other paddocks. Any individual found breaching this policy will face immediate expulsion from the festival and campgrounds without any refund or compensation. We kindly request all festival-goers to respect our neighbours and adhere to this rule, as it is crucial for maintaining a harmonious and respectful relationship with the surrounding community.
This is your home away from home so make yourself comfy!
- Build a community; greet your neighbours
- Be respectful of others’ space and belongings
- Offensive behaviour and language aren’t welcome
- Excessive noise, especially after the 1 am curfew, isn’t fair to others
- If you are a very early riser, enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the sunrise.
- Please ensure children are supervised at all times
- If your children wake early, ensure they are not disturbing fellow campers
Expect noise, bring earplugs. You can expect to hear music and fellow campers so please bring your earplugs if you are a light sleeper.
Keeping it tidy
Our camping ground is temporary and only used once a year. Please respect the area. All rubbish, particularly small items such as bottle caps or cigarette butts can be harmful to livestock and wildlife. Please use the waste and recycling bins, there are plenty around. Removing the outside packaging of groceries and camping items before you leave home will save extra waste being bought into the site.
Keeping Valuable Safe
Theft may be a problem (as at any large event), so please do not bring anything of value to the festival other than what is necessary. All valuables remain the responsibility of the camper.
A Vehicle Pass
A Vehicle Pass will be required for vehicles to park within the campground. Individual campsites are not allocated. Camp marshals are on-hand to help. Please follow their guidance and adhere to instructions for the safety of all. Cars must only be driven at walking pace within the campground area before setting up. There is a no vehicle movement rule in place, other than for emergencies and ACROD customer
