Camping

Camping at the Fleurieu Folk Festival is a great way to enjoy the weekend. Camping fees for the weekend are only $20 per person, and you can save an extra $5 when you purchase an Earlybird weekend camping ticket online by 30 September. However, Camping is available only for weekend passholders, performers and volunteers, and camping is available for Friday and Saturday nights only, it's not available on Thursday or Sunday nights.

Camping at Fleurieu Folk Festival is a great way to experience the festival. Tent camping is available on the oval, and there is usually plenty of space. Camping for camper vans and caravans is also available around the site, however, due to limited caravan space.

  • Camping cannot be set up on the Northern Boundary of the grounds (school side) until after 3pm Friday afternoon, and there is no camping on Sunday night. This is a requirement of Willunga Recreation park.
  • Performer camping is free at the Festival site for performers holding a Weekend pass.
  • Festival campsites will only be available on a first-come, first-served basis and it is not possible to pre-book any sites.
  • Due to the limitations of space the oval surrounds are only for camper vans and caravans. If you only have a tent, please camp on the western end of the oval itself that has been cordoned off for camping purposes.
  • There are no powered sites, so you will need to be entirely self-sufficient.
  • Dogs and pets are NOT permitted in the Festival Arena.

Please follow the directions of the gate attendant as there is limited space and we are trying to accommodate the needs of all campers. All tents should be erected in the space reserved on the oval wherever possible to allow enough space around the oval for campervans. Space has been allocated for caravans in the area adjacent to Aldinga Road.

Toilet and shower facilities are available at the Football Club western change rooms at all times and in the Stadium (before 10 am only). With water shortages please use sparingly – take short showers.

At all time, please watch out for pedestrians (especially kids!) and be mindful of not blocking any access road.

Camping area access

Entry for campers is via the Western Gate accessible from Railway Tce, off Aldinga Road between the hours of 3 pm to 12 midnight Friday and 6 am to 12 noon on Saturday. You will need to pay your camping fees to the gate attendant and someone will guide you to a camping site. Please be aware that camping space is very limited and you are asked to camp as close as possible to other campers and not take up more space than necessary. There should be enough space between the trees to accommodate two campsites.

Gate closure

The camping entrance gate will be closed to vehicles outside of the above-mentioned hours. If you need to move your vehicle in the event of an emergency, please locate a volunteer at the Festival Information Booth who will arrange for someone to unlock the gate.

Alcohol

Due to licensing regulations, no liquor may be brought into the Festival Site, including the camping area. All liquor purchased must be consumed within the Festival Site. The Festival Site is also a glass-free zone for the weekend.

Vehicles

Vehicles may be parked around the perimeter of the oval – not alongside your tent please (due to space limitations). Please do not obstruct the roadways, because clear access by service vehicles is needed at all times. In the event of an overwhelming demand for camping space, you may be asked to park your vehicle (camper vans & caravans excepted) outside the festival site. There is extra parking space in Railway Terrace within easy walking distance in view of the camping area.

The Festival is being run entirely by a limited number of volunteers who will be doing their best to look after you – please be patient with them – and have a great festival!
