Sound Checks

In keeping with our Noise Management plan, sound checks won’t take place before 10am on each day when there is live music programming.

We try to minimise noise levels wherever possible and will stay within our licensable limits. As a live music event, we must incorporate sound checks to ensure the artists  have an opportunity to rehearse.

We will always try to start as late into the morning as possible to ensure the least amount of disruption.

When Is Last Entry?

Last entry is at 9pm. Please ensure you do not turn up after this time as you will be unable to gain access to the event.

At the end of the event, think of our neighbours around the park and please leave quietly, following signage and the instructions of security, who are there to help you.
