Food and drink
We are a very child friendly festival, with plenty of events and entertainment for children - see kids' programme for full details.
Welfare and security
Whare Flat is a great venue for families. However it is in the bush with a river running through. Make sure you look out for your children's safety and please report any incidents to the HUB. The security of your own gear is your responsibilty but we would like to hear about any apparently suspicious behaviour. The entrance gate is locked overnight.
CDs and other merchandise available at the HUB in the marquee
Our workshops are led by the very musicians and entertainers you’ll see at the festival - see the programme for full details.

Please think about what you bring with you and how you can help reduce the festival's impact on land-fill.
Bins for recycling and rubbish are available onsite, but consider taking yours away yourself.
Bring refillable water bottles etc.
