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 and sound walls 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 and during the day prior.

Traffic and transport
Attendees are being encouraged to use public transport to access these events. Trains will be running direct to
Melbourne Showgrounds station. 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, both traffic controllers and variable message boards will be used. We expect traffic disruptions will
occur on Sunday 12 January between the hours of 11:00am and 4:00pm and from 8:00pm until 11:00pm.
Melbourne Showgrounds work with local council, VicRoads and Victoria Police to keep these disruptions to a
