Kids / All Ages

Golden Plains is an all-ages event. However, anyone under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or Legal Guardian and must carry a signed Legal Guardian Consent Form at all times. The parent or legal guardian must also have a valid wristband.

Golden Plains is not set up or designed with people under 18 in mind.

Kids under 12 are free, kids 12 and over need a (full price) valid wristband. Kids under 12 are given a wristband on entry and their parents’ mobile phone numbers are written on them in case of emergency, eg. in case the kid gets lost. Please complete the “Register My Under 12” form (available from October) for each kid under 12 who will be in your care at the festival. Proof of age may be required for kids’ tickets, so please come prepared.

Whilst we welcome parents bringing their kids, again, we don’t set up or design What Goes On with kids in mind; there are no dedicated kids’ activities and no childminding or creche-type facilities. So please think carefully before bringing kids; it’s a big crowd, a stage with amplified music and they’ll essentially be outdoors in country Victoria’s weather for three days. Come very prepared to look after them brilliantly and remember their skin, ears and eyes are more sensitive than yours. You are waaaay better off leaving the kids with their grandparents if you can and coming on down for some kid-like fun of your own. But you know, that’s up to you.
