GOOD GUMNUTS FESTIVAL - YOUTH POLICY
To ensure the safety and security of all attendees at the Good Gumnuts Festival, including those under the age of 18 years ("Minors"), and to adhere to the liquor licensing conditions of the event, the following Youth Policy forms part of the Terms & Conditions of Sale and Entry for the festival and campground areas.
MINORS AT THE FESTIVAL
Minors attending the festival MUST be accompanied by a Responsible Adult holding a valid festival ticket at all times. A Responsible Adult is defined as an adult who is:
- A parent or guardian of the minor
- The minor's spouse or de facto partner
- Temporarily standing in as the parent of the minor
Minors not accompanied by a Responsible Adult will be denied entry into the festival and campgrounds or removed from these areas.
Children aged 5 and under are admitted to the festival and campgrounds free of charge but must be accompanied by a Responsible Adult at all times. Minors aged 6 or older must purchase a ticket.
It is the obligation of the Responsible Adult to ensure that they, and all Minors accompanying them, comply with the festival's Terms & Conditions of Sale and Entry, instructions issued by festival staff, and the Youth Policy. All festival patrons must follow any instructions contained in all permanent and temporary signage throughout the festival site.
Minors must not engage in any illegal or disruptive activities at any time whilst at the festival or in the campgrounds. This includes underage drinking, use of illicit substances, or any disruptive or illegal behaviour. Any breach of these conditions may result in the eviction of the Responsible Adult and all accompanying Minors from the festival and campgrounds, and Police prosecution or fines may apply.
CONSIDERATIONS FOR RESPONSIBLE ADULTS
If you are a Responsible Adult planning to accompany Minors at the festival and campgrounds, please consider the following:
Alcohol intake must be moderated to ensure that you can responsibly take care of any Minors in your care.
The Minors must be with you at ALL times whilst you are at the festival or in the campgrounds.
Anyone who is considering being a nominated Responsible Adult or bringing Minors to the festival should consider this responsibility very carefully. If you are unable to commit to the above, you should reconsider whether you are the right person to be bringing or accompanying Minors to the festival and campgrounds.
For Under 18s who don’t have a driver’s license (Learner’s Permit) or a current valid passport, we will also accept a copy of the following:
- Student ID Card
- Bus Pass
- Personal ID Card
