Vegan Camp Out is a family friendly all ages festival however people under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

Please ensure that your child/children are always under a responsible adult’s supervision.

All tickets are sent via e-ticket to the email address provided when you bought. Please search in your emails (and also junk/spam) for your ticket before messaging us. Screenshot and save your ticket QR codes in case mobile reception is unavailable for you at the site.

For entry into the festival you must purchase a “Weekend Pass” for every individual that comes. When purchasing these you will be asked to provide their names for every ticket so that we can match their names with their ID. This is so we have a list of everyone that enters in case of an emergency or evacuation. It also helps to prevent ticket fraud or scams.

For parking at the festival, every vehicle needs a pass, there are different vehicle passes for cars, unpowered caravan/camper vans and powered caravan/camper vans.

Please purchase these online before coming to the festival as you will not be able to enter with a vehicle unless you have your vehicle pass. You will be charged a higher fee of $40 for a car pass if you come to the festival without one. (We do this to encourage people to not only save money earlier and help us in planning our festival spaces according to the number of cars that come but also to make sure that entry into the festival is as smooth as possible for everyone and so that we have smoother traffic flow in and out of the festival.)

For all ticket enquiries or name changes please email us at tickets@vegancampout.com.au

If you’re coming by car, the address is 69 Cooks Rd, Glenworth Valley, NSW, 2250 Unfortunately for now there is no way to travel to the site via public transport however if we receive enough demand, we will consider running shuttle buses to and from Sydney at an extra fee to pay for the bus service. More travel info coming soon!
If you don’t want to camp for the event but would still like to attend 1 pass-out a day will be allowed with day parking, to avoid too much traffic movement within the event. Also for safety try and use your pass-out before dark.
We recommend people to carpool to Vegan Camp Out together! It’s better for the environment, it’s cheaper and festivals are funner to drive to with others. If you have spare seats in your car, or are looking for a ride to Vegan Camp Out from your area, please feel free to join the Vegan Camp Out Australia – Solo Campers & Carpool group on facebook.

Please bring a tent, camping gear and your personal comforts as camping equipment is not provided and will not be sold on site. Please be mindful of space and your neighbours when setting up your camp. The area will be first come first served and we cannot guarantee the noise levels of the area. You can also come in a caravan/campervan. Please note, the caravan/campervan camping is separated from the rest of the campsites due to safety reasons. You will also have to show your caravan/campervan pass to be scanned before entering the site.

We will have a very limited amount of Glamping tents available. Each Glamping tent comes with: foam mattress, lantern, mats/rugs and more depending on the package you select.

You can book your Glamping tent by clicking here

Please note that week-end passes and car pass are not included in the Glamping fees and must be purchased separately.

No dogs are allowed inside a tent hire or a glamping tent. This is a stipulation set on us by our third party glamping and tent hire companies.

You don’t have to camp if you don’t want to, however just for traffic management reasons, you will only be allowed one pass out a day, so if you come in to the festival, you will be able to leave and come back the next day as long as you keep your wristband on your wrist and show your ticket and ID at the gate again the next day.

When it comes to a tent, it’s worth spending that little bit extra on the one thing that comes between you and the unpredictable Aussie weather when camping! Split the cost with your friends and get a tent that’s comfy and practical. An airbed is that little bit of luxury after a long day of fun too, and remember it gets cold when the sun goes down so take a few extra layers just in case! Bringing earplugs means you are more likely to get a decent night’s sleep whenever you decide to call it a night. Bring a camping chair to have something comfortable to sit on. If there are things that you can leave at home, then do! Avoid leaving your phone, money or other valuables in your tent during the day. You can get portable phone chargers that last you an entire weekend, charging your phone a good four times! When you sleep, put your valuables at the bottom of your sleeping bag. Thefts are rare, but it’s better to be safe than sorry. Not every stall will take card payments so bring cash just to be safe. Plan those pennies in advance and get enough to enjoy yourself! Other important camping must haves that are usually forgotten are the everyday essentials that you don’t think about! Toothpaste, hand soap/sanitiser, toothbrush, sunscreen, hat, sunglasses, mirror, hairbrush, baby wipes (eco-friendly ones!), toilet roll – just in case the loos happen to run out. A raincoat is always a good one to bring in case the rain starts. Speaking of water – a water bottle as well as a water tank to keep by your tent is always handy too!
There will be a designated area for powered and unpowered campervans to park in however don’t forget to buy your vehicle passes with your tickets otherwise there will be an extra fee at the gate. Passes can be bought from our tickets page and you have the option of powered or unpowered. The designated caravan/campervan area isn’t too far from the main camping areas and is close to the main arena. This will be shown on the site layout once it has been finalised.
There are toilet blocks all throughout the site. It’s always advisable to bring spare toilet rolls with you to festivals just in case the toilets run out before they are due to be refilled. There are also showers on site, however there aren’t many. If you want to shower, we recommend showering at a time of day when they won’t be very busy.

Our venue is on a greenfield site which does have its drawbacks when it comes to accessibility. Grass can become muddy in wet weather and make accessibility more difficult. However, we are designing our site with people that need more accessibility specifically in mind, along with accessible toilets.

Disabled attendees will also have their own parking and camping area closer to the arena. More specifics will be released nearer the time when the site layout has been finalised.

There will be several water points across the site, available free of charge. Please ensure you are only using  the water points with a ‘drinking water’ sign on them. To avoid queues it’s advisable to bring your own large water carriers.

Food: Between the buns, Funky Pies, Future Swirl, I Should Be Souvlaki, Kumache Kitchen, Morley’s Recipes, Sugar Baby Vegan Cakes & Vege4Love.

Markets: Moo to Ewe Farmed Animal Sanctuary, Animal Justice Party, Peanuts Wellbeing Sanctuary, Vegan Leather Co, Handmade by Zoe Campbell, Soul of Mother, The Laser Shack, Sea Shepherd Australia, Coast to Coast Animal Friends, Sadhana Forest, We The Free, and more 🙂

If you ordered a T-shirt or hoodie, it will be available to pick up at the event. Just take your QR code you received in your email to the merch stall once you’re in the main arena of the event, and they will give you your item. Security at the gates won’t know about them as they are only there to check you in to the event. You can change your size providing we have enough of that size. You will also be able to buy them at the event. We will also have other things for sale such as beanies, mugs, stickers and posters. All T-Shirts/Hoodies are produced using ethical clothing!

There will be the main stage for the talks and music, a mind and body stage for yoga, meditation, fitness and health classes, as well as talks and workshops throughout the weekend. There will also be a smaller open mic style jam tent space.

The stages will not be seated, however people are more than welcome to sit down on the grass or bring a camping chair or cushion to sit on during the day time talks. This is because we want it to have a festival feel, rather than have the vibe of a conference or lecture, and also because the main stage turns into the afterparty each night.

Please note you are not guaranteed to see every speaker or performer so make sure you keep a track of time to see your favourite people.

Each year there will be speakers with views that some people might disagree with or use language that you might find offensive, this is to be expected, and so we ask people to either choose to not watch that speaker, or if they want to, to be polite to the speaker and to those listening. Anyone found to be purposely disrupting a speaker’s talk will be evicted from the event. If anyone is being abusive, violent, threatening or dealing in any kind of illegal activity, they will also be ejected from the event. View our terms and conditions for more details on evictions.
No smoking at any of the stages or inside or within a 4m vicinity of any enclosed spaces at the event, this includes tents, marquees and other indoor structures.

BYO alcohol is strictly prohibited.

There will be a vegan bar on-site in the main arena.

For the safety of all, we also have a NO GLASS policy on site.

While we do welcome dogs on our premises, we recommend considering leaving your dog at home or with a sitter.


If you decide to bring your dog with you, please note that they must be on a leash and under your supervision at all times. They must also share your tent or vehicle for sleeping.


Please be aware that the stage area may not be an appropriate place for them during talks as it may be a bit loud for them, we encourage people with dogs to sit at the back. Dogs should not be near the stage when music is playing or during afterparties because of loud noise.


Please note that dogs aren’t permitted to stay in glamping accommodations or pre-pitched tents.

If you decide to bring your dog with you, please read dog guidelines here.

This goes without saying. Put your rubbish in bins placed around the site. Let’s leave the venue exactly how we found it. Bring a bin bag to fill up with rubbish at your tent and drop in the bins at the end. Take everything with you – tent, sleeping bag, rubbish etc!
Each night there will be an afterparty from 9pm. DJ’s to be confirmed.

Day tickets will be released shortly.

Illegal drugs and weapons. Glass including glass bottles. Animal products/byproducts.

Gas bottles are also strictly prohibited due to the fire risk they pose towards the festival attendees and festival site. Our festival is during peak summer time where we simply aren’t able to risk a potential fire, please keep all gas bottles at home.

Fires are not allowed, including camping stoves and disposable barbecues and gas bottles.

If you’re coming by bike, please make sure to lock them securely. (Vegan Camp Out) or the venue is not responsible for them!

Tickets are non-refundable as is standard event ticket procedure. If you can no longer attend, you can sell your ticket to someone else by requesting a name change at tickets@vegancampout.com.au
