Live from the Rock is a single-use-plastic-free event. As always the festival is also a pet, bike and glass free event. This is to ensure the safety of all the festival goers over the weekend. Please be mindful of all the attendees and leave your pets, bikes and glass (bottles) at home.

At Live from the Rock, we pride ourselves on being able to provide a safe, fun, relaxing and family friendly environment for festival goers of all ages from all walks of life with the goal of offering something for everyone. 

To ensure that everyone is able to enjoy the weekend, we ask that attendees respect each other, our volunteers and the environment by adhering to the following rules:

Alcohol and illicit drugs are not permitted on festival grounds and anyone under 19 years of age consuming alcohol will have it confiscated and asked to leave the premises immediately

Professional cameras and audio/visual recording equipment are not permitted, including detachable lenses - please note that we have some amazing official festival photographers volunteering their time to capture memories for us throughout the weekend and they, together with Live from the Rock, reserve exclusivity of festival imagery


All bags and coolers will be checked for prohibited items including glass and fireworks

All children under 12 years of age must be accompanied by an adult 19 years of age or older
