GAS STOVE, SOLID FUEL STOVE, BBQ & CAMPFIRES

To ensure that everyone is safe we will be banning all BBQs, Campfires and Solid Fuel Stoves from Camp Wildfire.

Small 220g gas stoves can be used in the designated Camp Cooking Areas onsite only. These areas will have enhanced firefighting facilities and paving stones to place gas stoves on.

Each person may bring a maximum of one 220g gas canister into the campsite with them. There will be a Camp Cooking Area in the general campsite.

Anyone found using a gas stove other than in the designated Camp Cooking Areas will be ejected from the site immediately.

Anyone found lighting a fire, using a BBQ or Solid Fuel Stove will be ejected from the site immediately.

We also ask that people take the time to ensure that any cigarettes are fully extinguished and discarded of safely in the sand buckets we will be providing around the site.

We hope you can all appreciate just how important it is that we work together on this one to keep the festival site safe! Please pass on the message to your fellow campers!
