  • Good Things Festival (GTF) is a licensed event recommended for a mature audience.
  • GTF recommends that young people between 15 and 17 are accompanied by an adult (ie; someone over 18 who is a parent, sibling, friend or legal guardian) and each person attending must have their own valid ticket.
  • Children between 12 and 15 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian and must have their own valid ticket.
  • GTF has the capacity to be very loud, have high intensity crowd movements, bands that may use profanities in their performance and patrons drinking alcohol. Children under 12 will not be admitted as GTF cannot guarantee the health and safety of small children. It is also likely that the liquor permit will also disallow children.

Your guardian will be asked to register their details and sign a waiver. If you are found at the event without the guardian, you and your guardian may be ejected from the event for breach of safety.

Remember these people are only there to help, so please pay attention.

5. FIRST AID
