Pack Wisely

Camp gear → This will be based on personal preference depending on how you choose to camp; however, if you are on a powered, unpowered or ensuite site, you will need to bring all your own equipment. This means tent, sleeping bag, sleeping mattress, pillow, shade, food storage, chair, torch, etc.

Warm clothes →  Even though it’s nearly summer it can still become icy cold at night, so bring plenty of warm gear. If you’re camping, don’t forget your sleeping bag, a torch and plenty of warm and waterproof clothing. Don’t forget clean undies!

Dollars →  Plan to save enough money for the 3 days, perhaps draw up a budget and think about your accommodation, travel and food. All up, this can be a lot of money so start saving now. ATMs are available so limit the amount of cash you bring with you to be safe!

Food →  Be prepared and organise food with your friends.

Phone charger →  A fully charged phone means you can always call for help from friends or family.

Dress up Themes →  Each night there will be a party costume theme, so get involved and join in the fun!

We recommend that you think about what your whole weekend will look like, including daily activities and the Festival at night. Then, with your mates, plan what you need—storage, appliances, sleeping gear and like—and decide who can bring things to share. 

Leave it at Home!

Alcohol →  Have you considered leaving the alcohol at home? Victor Harbor has plenty of fun activities on offer in order to help you celebrate with your friends. Plus, your bank account may thank you later!

Glass → This includes all types of glass and not just alcohol bottles. Broken glass can seriously injure people and wildlife.

Graffiti → Some people think it’s fun to ‘paint the town red’ and graffiti public or private property during the weekend. This is ILLEGAL. While graffiti is a cool art form not everybody appreciates your art on their stuff, so please leave the cans at home.

Knives or weapons → Don’t bring anything that could be considered by police or others to be dangerous.

Valuables → If you would be sad if you lost it, don’t bring it!
