Yes, UNIFY is a Camping Festival. Camping is free, and you have a couple of options when it comes to what you need to bring. If a more traditional camping experience is what you prefer, you can bring your tent, sleeping bag and all the rest and set up on site. Camping slots are not pre-booked or purchased. There is plenty of room though so once you arrive on site you can find a spot to set up your camp and you’ll be good to go.
Festival organisers work very closely with council, agencies and emergency services all year to ensure the delivery of the safest festival. A POPE (permit) will not be issued for the event if a Severe Weather / Code Red Day is predicted or declared. In this instance, the event will not go ahead.
