WHAT THE? What is a COVID-safe Festival?

What’s with the four sections?
In an effort to deliver a world-class event where everyone has an equally amazing experience while acting responsibly to the current climate, we have developed an event with four separate venues from which to enjoy the show.

Each will host only 1200 people, but will still have the same feel of a 5000 capacity “festival”.

The four sections, titled The Point, Injidup, Windmills & Cobblestone each operate independently and have their very own entry, bar, food stalls, toilets, merch stalls and sanitising stations scattered throughout.

Check out the map here
How does that make an “amazing experience”?
With world-class production, audio & vision, plus a revolving stage (The Turntable) we’ll be presenting our amazing artists in the round like Pearl Jam, Cold Chisel, Beyoncé and U2 have all done in the past. Plus, separate entry, bar, food stalls, toilets, and merch in each section, means faster access to what you need and cleaner facilities. All the vibe of a big festival, with toilets and bar shared with fewer people! Also remember this event is the first of its kind in a post-COVID world. You will be a part of history!
What section am I in? What section are my friends in?
We have not allocated anyone to any section. We’re leaving that up to you! You can register from September 21st to the area you would like to be in here. Be sure to log on early. Once an area is full, it’s full.

May we suggest checking in with your friends before making a call?

Check the site map here
What is the difference between each section?
Each section will have the same number of toilets, the same bar menu, and the same merch offering. However, each section will have different food vans. The food vans for each section are listed as follows:
  • The point: food van food van
  • Injidup
  • Windmills
  • Cobblestones
All have been encouraged to provide vegan and gluten free options. Food menu’s will be uploaded ahead of time. Please check back here if you have any food concerns in the weeks leading up to the event.
If I make a mistake and pick the incorrect section. Can I change it?
Please choose your sections VERY carefully as we cannot change your section once allocated. If you have major issues please reach out to events@macromusic.com.au

COVID SAFE PRACTICES

I’m feeling sick, what should I do?
Stay at home!Current health advice suggests that if you’re showing any Covid-19 symptoms that you should be tested and isolate until you receive your results. If that means missing the show, you can email us your Covid-19 test results (or doctors’ certificate) and we’ll refund your ticket.
What else are we doing to keep you safe?
We have employed a COVID safe team who will be in each venue helping everyone if you have any questions. This team will be here to remind you to keep your distance, create your groove circle and supply you with as much hand sanitiser you need. If you have any questions feel free to reach out the events@macromusic.com.au
What about travel restrictions for interstate artists & ticket holders?
Although we've been assured that we could obtain exceptions for Artist travelling from interstate they still would have to quarantine for 2 weeks. The very same hard border policy that has allowed this event to go ahead, has also thrown some hurdles in regards to our artists from the Eastern States. Now, everyone is in a different situation during Covid, and we wholeheartedly understand the decisions of some of our artists to stay home, whether it's for the sake of their families and/or children or if it's just not a viable option for them.
Got More questions?
We are sure you have plenty of questions still and we are striving to get these to you as soon as possible. In the meantime please submit questions to events@macromusic.com.au and we will endeavour to respond or add your questions to FAQ’s.

Barnard Park Move

Why is the event moving, and where?
Okay, so due to current Covid-19 restrictions, we have had to move the show to a venue with more space so we can comply with the state governments 2sqm rule. Thankfully, the amazing folk at the City of Busselton (also the event capital of WA) have come to the party and offered up the beautiful Barnard Park on the foreshore.
I have a bus ticket for the show. How does the move affect me?
If you have a Busselton bus ticket, you will be automatically refunded. If you have any questions regarding your Busselton bus ticket please direct all enquiries to info@oztix.com.au.

We have added a Busselton Shuttle Service that loops to Broadwater and Abbey and back to the show that will run every 20 mins. Details for that bus here

Changes to the Margaret River and Dunsborough buses have been made to ensure everyone makes it to the festival on time. Please check the new timetable here.

All Buses will now be departing the festival at 10:10pm as we can no longer host an After Party.
I have purchased a parking pass for my car.
Click here for a map

All parking passes will be automatically refunded, and free parking will be provided by the City of Busselton. The free festival car park is located at Signal Park and is walking distance to the festival. There is more free parking scattered around the Busselton area.
What happens to my ticket?
All tickets will remain valid all you need to is keep an eye on your emails for a notification from Oztix to jump online and select your section.
Why didn't we just cap tickets so we could stay at 3 Oceans?
When the ban on Mass Gatherings came into effect in March, we started preparing a backup plan to ensure that Good Day Sunshine could go ahead on October 31st. When the road map was announced back in June we were elated to see that our festival would fall well and truly into the Phase 5 easement of restrictions, so we put our backup plan to rest and continued chugging along as normal. Over the last couple of months, we have seen the announcement of Phase 5 restrictions pushed back significantly so we now only just fall into phase 5. We realised our original festival setup would not meet the requirements set by the Government in Phase 4 restrictions, so in the last couple of weeks, we decided to dust off our backup plan and bring it to fruition.
What if I booked walking distance to 3 Oceans
We will be offering cheaper bus tickets from 3 Oceans Winery for anyone walking to the site. These tickets will be $15 return and will be available here .
What if I no longer need my bus ticket if I have changed accommodation
If you no longer need your bus ticket due to the venue change please email your refund request to info@oztix.com.au.
What Covid-safe measures are we putting in place with transport to and from the venue
Gannaway's will be providing us with their COVID safe plan and will be providing adequate buses in line with the current restriction.
