COVID-19 Safety Information

Everything you need to know about keeping COVID safe at Junction Hometown.

We want everyone to enjoy themselves at the event, but our top priority is keeping our community safe. 

This year's festival will look and feel very different due to the impacts of COVID-19, and we ask that you stay informed by reading the information below prior to attending the event. 

Stay home if you are feeling unwell

The most important thing you can do to keep yourself and others safe is to stay home if you are feeling unwell or displaying symptoms of COVID-19 including a cough, fever, sore throat, fatigue or shortness of breath.

Anyone displaying COVID-19 symptoms will be asked to leave the event and we reserve the right to refuse entry on this basis. Please contact us if you would like to refund your ticket. 

Register before you enter + tell us if you are unwell

When you arrive at the event, our volunteers will ask you to register your name and phone number for contact tracing purposes by scanning a QR code. We encourage you to bring your tickets on your phone (rather than paper). For contact tracing purposes, patrons will not be allowed to re-enter the event site after leaving. 

We also recommend all patrons download the Federal Government’s official COVIDSafe app.

If you become ill during the festival, please find one of our volunteers (wearing blue hats) who will direct you to our first aid officer + tent. 

Maintain a social distance from others

Once inside the festival, our ushers will allocate you and your family or social group to a picnic rug which will be placed a safe distance from other patrons. So if you want to sit with someone, make sure you arrive together! 

We ask that you stay 1.5 metres from others at all times, including when you are lining up to enter the park or purchase food and drink. 

Practice good hand hygiene + tap to pay 

Sanitising stations will be situated throughout the park. We ask that all patrons practice good hand hygiene by regularly washing their hands or using the available hand sanitiser. 

When purchasing food and drink, we recommend using contactless card payments.

Take a seat!

There will be plenty of seating available at Hometown and we ask that you please remain seated while drinking alcohol.

Junction Hometown will be operating under an approved COVID Safe plan. The safety of our artists and audiences is paramount and we thank you for your cooperation!
