Sound levels

Sound levels will be monitored by an accredited acoustic engineer to ensure sound meets the SEPP N2 guidelines. We advise that the EPA regulations do mean music from the site will be audible; however, you should be able to hold normal conversations without being affected.

A directional sound system will be used to minimise the emission of sound to residential areas. In addition to the main event, sound checks will be made throughout the event day.

Traffic and transport
Attendees are being encouraged to use public transport to access these events. Melbourne Showgrounds Train Station will be in operation during this event, as per ‘Getting here’ information. Traffic delays are likely and those driving through the area during these periods are encouraged to allow extra travel time where possible.

A Traffic Management Plan will be in place to manage traffic in and around Melbourne Showgrounds for the festival. We expect traffic disruptions will occur on Saturday 10 June between the hours of 12:00pm – 1:00pm and from 10:00pm until 11:00pm.
Melbourne Showgrounds work with local council, VicRoads, and Victoria Police to keep these disruptions to a minimum.
