To ensure the safety and security for all attending Harvest Rock II ("the event"), and those under the age of 18 ("a minor"), the Youth Policy forms part of our Conditions of Entry for the Event.
Youth Event Ticketholders aged under 18 years MUST be accompanied by a responsible adult holding a valid Adult Event ticket when entering the Event and at ALL times whilst at the Event.

Minors must not engage in any illegal or disruptive activities at any time whilst at the Event. This includes underage drinking, use of illicit substances, or any disruptive or illegal behaviour. Any breach of these conditions may result in the eviction of the responsible adult and all accompanying minors from the Event, police prosecution, and/or fines may apply. Any such removal from the Event as a result of these conditions will not constitute grounds for a refund.
If you are a responsible adult planning to accompany any minors at the Event, please consider this responsibility very carefully and moderate your alcohol intake to ensure that you can responsibly take care of any minors in your care.
If you are unable to commit to the above, you should reconsider if you are the right person to be accompanying minors at the Event.

The Solar Slice: As part of Harvest Rock's commitment to building a sustainable future, the festival has partnered with FEAT. Live to apply a $1 "Solar Slice" across tickets to fund carbon reduction projects across the festival and support action on climate within the local community.
Local Reforestation in the Adelaide Hills: This year we've teamed up with Reforest and FEAT. Live to help support local reforestation + bush regeneration at the Mannavale farm bushfire recovery project in Adelaide Hills. See more about the project HERE.
Solar in Remote Communities: The First Nations Clean Energy Network are ensuring Australia’s renewable energy revolution and transition happens in partnership with First Nations communities. The opportunity of renewable energy should be made available to all, but for many remote communities, affordable and clean power is not yet a reality. Harvest Rock is committed to supporting the Indigenous community’s energy transition and helping build the collective power of remote First Nations communities to engage in social, cultural and economic activities.
In partnership with the network, this we're supporting a range of activities, including:
Build community capacity through education, training and facilitation of the planning and build of community-scale renewable energy projects
Develop resources designed to make sure First Nations communities have all of the information they need to make decisions, negotiate and share in the benefits of the renewables boom.
Build productive partnerships with industry, investors and government to design projects that ensure benefits are shared and where communities can gain local, secure jobs.
Bayla Productions Mentee Program: Across this year's event, the Solar Slice is funding three First Nations production interns who will be learning the production ropes at the festival. This mentorship program is run by Balya Productions, an organisation that generates industry connections, professional development opportunities and employment outcomes for First Nations peoples, communities and industries. Balya also supports First Nations Creatives by connecting pathways, performance and employment opportunities.
Wallaby Water: : Harvest Rock has cut out plastic water bottles on site and instead will be using Wallaby Water cans. The still water cans have a screw top lid so you can refill on site throughout the duration of the festival!
TURN Reusable Cups: Single-use waste is ‘Virtual Insanity’! Harvest Rock II has teamed up with reuse partner TURN to help eliminate single-use plastic with reusable cups for your drinks. Here’s how it works…
Pay an upfront $4.00 sustainability fee for your first cup. Swap out that cup FREE for a fresh one at the bar when you purchase your next drink in a cup OR hold onto your cup and reuse it with your next bottle of wine purchase. When you’re done with your cup, reTURN it to a TURN smart orange bin – orange bin = cups.
Scan the QR code on the TURN bin for your chance to WIN a $100 Harvest Voucher to spend at the festival, or an Official Harvest Rock II merch pack
Vendor Packaging: All our food vendors onsite will be ditching the plastic and using compostable packaging only!
Help us take action on climate! Please BYO water bottle onsite. We will have refill stations and encourage you to reduce single-use plastics. Use the correct bins for your waste and recycling - this helps reduce unnecessary landfill. And please use public transport to and from the event!
Harvest Rock is held across two parks, Rymill & King Rodney Parks, in the heart of the Adelaide CBD. You can view and download a map of the site (both colour & black and white versions) HERE.
The site is therefore predominately grass parklands, with both sealed and unsealed pathways. Bartels Road runs between the two parks and will be covered with artificial grass where Truck Town and Cellar Door are located.
The festival has two stages - the Harvest Stage and the Vines Stage - which both have accessible viewing platforms. The distance from the Main Entrance to each stage is approximately 140 metres to the Vines Stage and 440 metres to the Harvest Stage.
There will be a vehicle drop-off spot on Rundle Street for any patrons with accessibility requirements, which will be located approximately 100 metres from the Main Entrance. Please note, this is not for parking but for drop-off and pick-up only.
Disabled toilets will be located in the two main toilet blocks, which are approximately 90 - 120 metres away from the stage viewing platforms. There is also a disabled toilet in Little Harvest and in VIP.
All ticket types for Harvest Rock II are accessibility friendly. The areas for GA and VIP are open area spaces. The Suites, Harvest Lounge, and Platinum are built structures, but all have ramp access.
Harvest Rock will also be working with AUSLAN Stage Left for performances on the main stages. More updates and confirmed schedules will be released on our website and social media soon, so stay tuned!
