WHAT TO BRING
Can I bring my dog?
We know you love your pet too much to place it in a confusing and scary environment with loud noises, flashing lights and too many people so we won’t take that question seriously.
If you’re stuck, there are kennels for your pooch in Yass.
Can I bring my gas stove?
For safety reasons, we can’t permit open flame at the event and that means no gas stoves or bottles unless professionally fitted to your caravan or camper.
Can I bring my own soundsystem?
We’re going to stick up for your sleepy neighbours and say no. Nobody wants to hear your track selection at a festival unless you were booked to play on a stage.
Can I bring alcohol?
Dragon Dreaming is a BYO event and no alcohol can be purchased on site. We strongly encourage all patrons to be responsible with the consumption of alcohol and warn that drunkenness is not considered a defense under our ‘no dickheads’ policy.
Can I bring my own generator?
No. Generators are both a fire hazard and make you an obnoxious neighbor. Those people next to you REALLY do not want to be woken by the noise or exhaust fumes in their tent.
Any generators found on site will be confiscated and kept in a secure location awaiting collection as you exit the festival.
What should I bring?
Food and drink (they will be available on site but you may want to bring some snacks and your favourite beverage).
Adequate shelter- not only your tent but don’t forget a tarp or marquee to sit under with your mates.
Hat and sunblock.
Your best attitude.
Clothing for all weather.
Money- there are no ATMs on site
Tent, sleeping gear and communal shelter.
Don’t forget your eski and toothbrush!
Reusable water bottle/container.
Butt bin if you are a smoker.
Is there drinking water on site?
There will be plenty of drinking water available on site for free so please bring your reusable water bottle.
Will there be showers?
There are no showers on site. While there is a refreshing lake for swimming, we ask patrons not use any detergent or washing products in the water to get clean.
Is there mobile reception?
Tune in and drop out, they say, and we agree. You will be unable to check your Instagram, Facebook or Tinder while at Dragon. Did that cute guy/girl you stalked for weeks text back after you finally had the courage to reach out yesterday? Who knows? Live in the now and with the fact you won’t be checking your phone for a few days.
Dragon staff will have access to communications for emergencies. Please do not hesitate to reach out to a crew member if required.
Are there ATMs on site?
There will be no ATMs on site so please bring enough cash for food and other purchases.
