Everyone! The Drop is a licensed all ages event, however, if you’re under 16 we recommend you attend with a parent or guardian. 

The Drop is a licensed 18+ event so please leave the little ones at home. 

If you’re not 100% sure this event is suitable for your child and you have some questions, please feel free to email us at [email protected].


YES! All bars are cash only but there are ATMs and food vendors have EFTPOS.


There are EFTPOS facilities at every bar and ATMs.

Absolutely not! These great little towns have been kind enough to host us so let’s be respectful of their space and the local residents. You can do this by….

  • Not drinking in public spaces
  • Taking any rubbish with you
  • Not making noise when entering or leaving the festival
  • Being polite to the locals

Drop in on the good times, not in someone else’s personal space.
Respect and look out for each other.
If you see or experience any behaviour that makes you uneasy or feel unsafe call 0434 955 586

BYO alcohol is STRICTLY PROHIBITED. Security will be checking all bags and containers at the entrance and any alcohol found will be confiscated.

Our policy is no, no, no! Illicit substances are not welcome and there is always the chance of sniffer dogs so please leave anything illegal at home.

Our friendly local Police Force will be running a Drug Detection Dogs operation at the festival. Any patrons caught with drugs will have their entry / wristband forfeited.

No so please leave your tents at home.

We are more than happy for you to bring a sealed or empty water bottle to The Drop. In fact, we encourage reusing containers as it’s good for the environment.

Yes. You’re more than welcome to pack some food but please DO NOT bring eskies, folding chairs, card tables and knives as security will have to take these from you. Just something that will fit in your backpack.

If you need to bring in prescription or over-the-counter medication, you will need to make sure it is clearly labelled and preferably in its original packaging. If you have unidentifiable medication, security may confiscate it. If you’re unsure or have any questions, get in touch with The Drop via [email protected].

The only forms of valid photo ID that will be accepted are a current driver’s license, a current passport or a current state issued proof of age card.

There will be local food offerings, festival favourites and some sweet surprises so there will be no going hungry.

If you have any allergies or specific requirements we do recommend bringing along some snacks just to ensure you don’t go hungry.

If you’d like further information, please get in touch with The Drop via [email protected].

No. As there is nowhere to store your things, please make sure you bring all that you need in a backpack and make sure you look after it.

There will be ATMs available on site and there will be EFTPOS at each bar however we do suggest that you pack a little cash to avoid queuing.

You will be able to grab some band merch so be sure to pack some extra pocket money.

The Drop will go ahead rain or shine. If it does look like rain, please leave your umbrellas at home.

If you’re UNDER 18
You just need to bring ID that has the same name on it as your ticket e.g Bus Pass, School Card, ATM Card, Library Card, Proof of Age Card

If you’re OVER 18
If you purchased any type of ticket to THE DROP and you’re over 18 and you would like to access the bar – YOU NEED TO BRING VALID PHOTO ID.

Valid photo ID includes one of the following:

  • Current driver’s license
  • Current state issued Proof of Age Card (for The Drop Margaret River, only a WA proof of age card will be accepted – other state issued proof of age cards will not be accepted)
  • Current Passport
  • Sharp things like knives, swords, ninja stars
  • Alcohol: I promise you we have enough and it’ll only be taken off you at the door so save your money
  • Drugs: Just please don’t. This could really ruin your night. And ours. And your friends. And your job prospects
  • Your dog. I’m sure he/she/it is lovely and your best friend but I’m allergic. Soz
  • Umbrellas: because the people behind you can’t see. A poncho is a lot nicer for your neighbour
  • Vuvuzelas: because they are the most annoying thing ever invented
  • Rollerskates: very inpractical on grass!
  • Chairs: you will look silly dancing with one of these under your arm and diminish your ability to look cool in front of people you’re trying to impress. Bring a rug or towel though if you want to spread out on the grass
  • Surf boards: No waves here buddy!
  • Skateboards: Also terrible mode of transport on grass
  • Fedoras: Only joking! You can wear a Fedora but only if you’re a dad
  • Your car if you plan to drink
  • SLR cameras and video equipment (unless you have media clearance)
  • Anything that won’t fit in a backpack
  • A bad attitude. No meanies, nasties or punchies. Only hugs, kisses and high fives
