Youth Policy

SPLENDOUR YOUTH POLICY

To ensure the safety and security for all attending Splendour in the Grass (“the Event”), and those under the age of 18 (“a minor”), the Youth Policy forms part of our Conditions of Entry for both the Event and Event Campground areas.

EVENT TICKET YOUTH POLICY – REVISED FOR 2022

  • Event Ticketholders aged under 18 years MUST be accompanied by a responsible adult holding a valid Event ticket when entering the Event and at ALL times whilst at the Event.
  • Event Ticketholders aged under 18 years not accompanied by a responsible adult holding a valid Event ticket will be denied entry into the Event or removed from the Event.
  • Children aged 12 and under are admitted to the Event free and must be accompanied by a parent and/or responsible adult 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 under 18 years MUST be accompanied by a responsible adult holding a valid Camping Ticket when entering the Event Campgrounds and at ALL times whilst in the Event Campgrounds.
  • Camping Ticketholders aged under 18 years who are not accompanied by a responsible adult holding a valid Camping Ticket will be denied entry into the Event Campgrounds or removed from the Event Campgrounds.
  • Children aged 12 and under are admitted to the Event Campgrounds free and must be accompanied by a parent and/or responsible adult holding a valid Event and Camping Ticket when entering the Event Campgrounds and at ALL times whilst at the Event and Event Campgrounds. Those aged 13 or older must buy a ticket.

Under NSW liquor laws, 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
  • standing in as the parent of the minor for the time being.

It is the obligation of the responsible adult to ensure that they and all minors 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.

Minors must not engage in any illegal or disruptive activities at any time whilst at the Event or in the Event 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 Event and Police prosecution or fines may apply.

If you are a responsible adult planning to accompany any minors at the Event, please consider the following;

1) Alcohol intake must be moderated to ensure that you can responsibly take care of any minors in your care

2) The minors must be with you at ALL times whilst you are at the Event or in the Event Campgrounds

If you are unable to commit to the above you should reconsider whether you are the right person to be accompanying minors to and throughout the Event.

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 responsible adult in such circumstances should consider this responsibility very carefully.

The Event requires all parents or responsible adults attending the Event or Event Campgrounds with any minors, to complete the Responsible Adult – Minor Registration Form 

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
