You are on your way to three 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 Survival Guide for a list of all the camping essentials.
Your Elements Festival ticket includes access to the General Camp Grounds from Thursday & Friday to Monday for 4 or 3 Day ticketholders. These Festival Tickets do NOT include a vehicle Pass. If you wish to have your vehicle in the camp ground, you will need to purchase a Vehicle Pass.
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.
RENT A TENT
Elements Festival 2020 has its own beautifully organised tent city. Similar to our glamping village, tent city is a cheaper option that comes with the bonus of being environmentally friendly. Your festival lodgings come equipped with all the bedding you need to be cosy and comfortable.
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.
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.
