You are on your way to three/four-days in the Aussie bush. That means awesome times ahead, so long as you plan and prepare. We have brought in infrastructure and staff to make the festival grounds as safe as possible for you, but we are not your parents. It’s up to you to bring along all the things you’ll need to keep yourself comfortable and sheltered, whatever the conditions.
The perfect festival campsite is an art form, developed and refined over many festival adventures. While it’s up to you to pimp your festival home in your own unique style, you should check out our Essential Reading for a list of all the camping essentials.
While we all love to be spontaneous, when it comes to a three/four-day festival in the bush, you kinda need to do a bit of preparation. It doesn’t take much effort, will maximise your good times, and will mean we don't end up seeing unused food, drinks, and camping equipment abandoned at the end of the event. We are a leave no trace festival. This means whatever you take out goes home with you too. So, the less you bring, the less you’ll have to deal with when it’s time to pack up.
WHAT TO BRING
To make this whole planning thing easier for you, we have compiled a list of essentials that has been crafted by the Elements crew over many years of festival-going. Learn from our mistakes and triumphs and be sure to pack the following:
· Esky (ice is available for purchase on site)
· Reusable water bottle (fill up from the free water stations throughout the site)
· Plenty of drinking water to keep at camp (in a reusable bulk water container)
· Sun protection – hat, sunscreen, sunglasses
· Clothes for all conditions – hot, cold and wet
· Shoes for all conditions
· Rubbish bags for your camp and butt bins if you’re a smoker
· Camping gear – tent (make sure you have the pegs and poles), tarps, ropes and poles
· Bedding – mattress, pillow, sleeping bag
· Torch / headlamp
· Earplugs for when you need some sleep

WHAT NOT TO BRING
Everyone parties differently so, just to be sure we’re all on the same page, here’s a list of things we don’t want to see at Elements:
· Weapons of any kind
· Powered speakers
· Motorbikes, quad bikes, powered bicycles, skateboards, scooters
· Drugs (or excessive amounts of alcohol)

FAMILY | QUIET CAMPING
Elements Festival is all about inclusivity and allowing people from all walks of life to carve their own unique path through our world. We understand that families have different camping requirements to other tribe members, so we have a dedicated area situated slightly away from the other camp areas. This quiet little haven is perfect for families with little ones who need peace and quiet to sleep. This area will be clearly signed and we ask that all our Elementals show respect for the quiet nature of this region of the Elements map.
To make life easier for the members of our tribe who have mobility issues, we’ve established a disabled camping site that’s conveniently located for easy access to the festival grounds. Please email us if you need to take advantage of this area.
One of our most exciting upgrades for Elements Festival 2021 is the addition of a VIP Camping area. This space is part of the newly developed Elements map and has been purpose-built for supreme comfort.

To help you maximise your Elements experience, we’ve created a beautiful little village of bell tents, ready and waiting for an assortment of Elementals to populate it. Along with your spacious pre-pitched tent, you get an airbed, sheets, doona, pillows, led lighting and a rug. These spacious and decadent rigs are ideal for those of you who’d like to balance your time in the Aussie wilderness with a bit of comfort and luxury. They’re also perfectly suited to anyone who may be arriving late, especially if you’re rocking up after work. Finally reaching your campsite and being already completely setup means you get to dive into the adventure without a moment’s hesitation. Think of it like skipping the annoying instructional level at the start of a game. If that sounds like your jam, then book your bell tent quickly because our glamping village always fills up fast.
Elements Festival 2021 will be continuing the 'In Tent City' tradition from previous years. Though it is similar in design to our Glamping Village, 'In Tent City' offers cheaper packages for Elementals who have a strict budget. Your festival lodgings will still be cosy and comfortable, and you have a number of package options to choose from!
