Youth Policy

To ensure the safety and security for all attending Splendour in the Grass, and in particular those who are under 18, the Youth Policy forms part of our Conditions of Entry for both the Event and Campground areas.

EVENT TICKET YOUTH POLICY

  • Event Ticketholders aged 15 and under MUST be accompanied by a responsible parent and/or adult guardian holding a valid Event ticket when entering the Event and at all times whilst at the Event. For your safety and well-being we strongly recommend this adult guardian is aged 25 years or older.
  • Event Ticketholders aged 15 years and under not accompanied by a responsible parent and/or adult guardian holding a valid Event ticket will be denied entry into the Event or removed from the Venue.
  • For your safety and well-being we strongly recommend that Event Ticketholders aged 16 and 17 years old are accompanied by a responsible parent and/or adult guardian aged 25 years or older.
  • Children aged 12 and under are admitted to the Event free and must be accompanied by a responsible parent and/or adult guardian holding a valid Event ticket when entering the Event and at ALL times whilst at the Event. Those aged 13 or older must buy a ticket.

CAMPING TICKET YOUTH POLICY

  • Camping Ticketholders aged 17 and under MUST be accompanied by a responsible parent and/or adult guardian holding a valid Camping Ticket when entering the Venue Campgrounds and at all times whilst in the Venue Campgrounds. For your safety and well-being we strongly recommend this adult guardian is aged 25 years or older.
  • Camping Ticketholders aged 17 years and under not accompanied by a responsible parent and/or adult guardian holding a valid Camping Ticket will be denied entry into the Campgrounds or removed from the Venue.
  • Children aged 12 and under are admitted to the Venue Campgrounds free and must be accompanied by a responsible parent and/or adult guardian holding a valid Event and Camping Ticket when entering the Venue Campgrounds and at ALL times whilst at the Event or Campgrounds. Those aged 13 or older must buy a ticket.

A responsible adult guardian may accompany a maximum of three (3) patrons aged 15 or under at the Event.  Any additional patrons aged 15 or under will not be allowed into the Event without another accompanying adult guardian.

It is the responsibility of the parent or adult guardian to ensure that all youth patrons accompanying them comply with the Event Ticket Terms & Conditions, Event Conditions of Entry, instructions issued by Event staff and the Event Youth Policy. All Event patrons must follow any instructions contained in all permanent and temporary signage throughout the Event site.

Patrons under the age of 18 must not engage in any illegal or disruptive activities at any time whilst at the Event. This includes underage drinking, use of illicit substances or any generally disruptive behaviour.

Any breach of these conditions may result in the eviction of the parent/guardian and all accompanying minors from the Event.

If you are an adult/guardian planning to accompany any minors at Splendour, please ask yourself the following questions;
1) Can I moderate my alcohol intake so that I can responsibly take care of any minors in my care?
2) Can I still enjoy Splendour with my minors in tow?

If you’ve answered ‘no’ to either question you might need to re-think whether you are the right person to be accompanying minors around the Splendour festival and campground.

Responsible adults with minors in their care should note that they will not be able to enter bars or licensed areas on site with the minors in their company.

Anyone who is considering being the nominated adult in such circumstances should consider this responsibility very carefully.

The Event requires all parents or responsible adult guardians of a child/children aged 15 and under attending the Splendour in the Grass Event or Campgrounds to complete the Youth Registration Form for their children to attend with themselves or a nominated adult guardian.

People other than a parent can be a responsible adult guardian, if the minor/s is in the person’s care, this consent must be given by the parent via our online Youth Registration Form. Any patron who is considering being the nominated responsible adult guardian should consider this responsibility very carefully.

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 your birth certificate PLUS one of the following:

    • Student ID Card
    • Bus Pass
    • Bank Account Statement in your name
