What a week we’ve had with the NSW State Government and Police doing their hardest to ruin All Ages Music Festivals and Events in Sydney resulting in Good Things Festival no longer being able to allow entry to their Under 18-Year-Old Patrons.
Now it seems festival organisers are also feeling the pressure in other states with an update to their allowance of their Under Age Patrons being issues for Melbourne fans. This morning event organisers shared the update which now states:
So if you’re in Melbourne and attending with a single or group of underage patrons, make sure you get in touch this week to let them know all of the required information so you’re all able to get through the gates. It’s a safety concern which hopefully won’t have any issues if followed correctly.
We also launched a petition this week for the NSW State Government and Police to rethink their strategies and rules/regulations which have resulted in Good Things Festival‘s Sydney’s denial of access to Under 18s. So far, none of the local members have been able to respond with any comments or statement on the matter and we are eagerly anticipating a reply from NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian and the NSW Minister for Police Troy Grant.
Will will update you all once we hear back with any developments, until then SIGN and SHARE the Petition to help spread the word about what we are trying to fight for which not only affects the under 18 crowds but the bands who were set to perform for them.
