Two-wheeled motorbikes (without a sidecar) do not require a Pass, although they are subject to all other conditions and/or restrictions relating to vehicle movements.
2. You must arrive on the day assigned on your Pass or your vehicle will be denied entry to the venue.
3. Ensure that the type of Pass and the details printed on it are correct.
4. One Pass is required per vehicle. Each vehicle occupant does not require a Pass. Passes are not re-usable on more than one vehicle and must not be altered. Such actions will render the pass null and void and may result in you being refused admission to the festival and campgrounds. PLEASE PURCHASE ONE (1) PASS ONLY, FOR THE DAY YOU WISH TO ARRIVE TO SITE.
5. Pass is valid until 2pm Sunday 01 January 2017 by which time all private vehicles must depart the campgrounds.
6. Your Pass must be placed on the driver’s side dashboard of your vehicle.
7. The Pass should be positioned so that it is clearly visible from the exterior of the car but does not obstruct the driver’s vision.
8. Pass needs to be in position well before arriving at the Venue as it will need to be seen by police and traffic controllers as you approach the site and also assists our staff in knowing where to direct your vehicle once inside the property.
9. Pass contains a barcode that will be scanned upon arrival. Do not damage or tamper with this barcode or your entry may be delayed or denied.
10. Your Pass is only applicable for private use vehicles. It is not valid for taxis, trucks, buses or commercial mini-buses.
11. Once your vehicle is parked in the campground, it is not permitted to be moved again until you depart the festival.
12. The Pass does not entitle your vehicle to park in any day parking or working vehicle areas.
13. The Pass does not include entry to the festival. Each occupant of a vehicle entering the Venue campground must also hold a valid Falls Festival Event ticket.
14. Passes may not, without the prior written consent of Falls Festival, be resold at a premium or used for advertising, promotion or other commercial purposes (including competitions and trade promotions) or to enhance the demand for other goods or services. If a Pass is sold or used in breach of this condition, the bearer of the ticket will be refused admission.

1. Each vehicle with a valid CAMPERS CAR PASS and with 3 or more passengers holding valid un-scanned Falls Festival Lorne Event tickets will be entitled to a refund voucher to the value of $30.
2. The voucher can be redeemed for cash at the Token booth inside the event arena before midnight on 31st December.
3. Passengers who have already been wristbanded will not be counted as eligible passengers for the purposes of this refund system.
4. Attempts to fraudulently obtain or qualify for refund vouchers may result in offenders and/or the vehicle being refused entry to the festival. This includes picking up passengers just outside the venue or on internal venue roadways.
5. Passengers moving between vehicles unnecessarily at the Refund Voucher processing point may result in those vehicles being ruled ineligible for the refund system.
6. Refund vouchers will only be issued at the ticket check point when your Pass is scanned. There will be no issuing of vouchers after that point and time. Make sure staff are aware that your vehicle contains 3 or more passengers. Failure to do so could exclude your vehicle from being entitled to receive a refund voucher, as eligibility cannot be verified after that point and vouchers cannot be provided retrospectively.
7. Refund vouchers will not be replaced if lost or damaged.
8. Refund vouchers must be redeemed at the festival during period outlined on the voucher. Refund vouchers are not valid after that time.
9. The decision of Falls Festival Lorne staff will be final and no arguments or debate will be entered into.
10. Any vehicle causing delays to the free movement of vehicles into the campers parking area may result in that vehicle and its occupants being refused entry to the campgrounds and festival.
