This event will be staged rain, hail or shine. Four (4) of the five (5) stages are undercover There will be an ATM on site. This may experience long queues so it's a good idea to bring enough cash for the day or evening. Three bars operate throughout the event: Southern Cross Beer Garden: This open air beer garden overlooks the Southern Cross stage, a large grassy, open-air zoen with picnic tables and gum trees, perfect for chillin on picnic blankets by day and non-stop dancing by night. Motor Pavilion Beer Hall: The aptly titled Motor Pavilion transforms into a beer hall with space for dancing, loads of picnic tables (both undercover and in the sun) and chilled beers on tap Showmans Bar: The deep-south juke joint atmosphere that is the Showman’s Bar, has been the talk of the town since the 2014 event. In addition to a large range of beers, wines and spirits, this is the location of the Bacardi Mojito Bar - A hit with all the ladies and gents! ('Mo-hee-tos' are a delicious combo of white rum, sugar, lime, soda and mint. Very moreish!) An array of tantalising gourmet food vans are spread around the site.
