The Rochester

Hire your own private room in advance, then arrive on-site via the express lane and drive straight to your reserved car space near your already-set up and furnished room.

The Rochester has a friendly 24-hour concierge and is located in prime campground between Mulwaverley and Hong Kong Island, close to the Amphitheatre, Pink Flamingo Bar, Meredith Eye and Eric’s Terrace, as well as the hot showers. And a loo, just for Rochester guests.

There are two room types, both come as Double or Twin Share. Maximum 2 people per room.

  • a “Standard” sturdy tent (with either a double bed stretcher or two singles), or
  • one of Uncle Doug’s “XL” roomy 20-foot lockable cabins (converted shipping container) complete with veranda, bedside table, running water, a fan and hotel-grade mattresses; your choice of a double bed or two singles.

Please note: You must have already purchased festival tickets prior to securing your Rochester room.

Check in is from 8am Saturday 9 March and late check out by 1pm Monday 11 March. Two-and-a-half days plus two nights for two people in your own private canvas room or converted shipping container. Prices will be advised later in the year. BYO all linen, towels, blankets and pillows. Soap and shower tokens are provided.

The Rochester is a boutique establishment so vacancies are very limited. We suggest that you book early to avoid disappointment.
