We want your festival experience to be smooth and enjoyable, so we've got you covered with assistance services.

As always, if you are experiencing an emergency, dial 000.

  • next to the Canberra Times Fountain out the front of the Canberra Centre
  • behind the Smartraveller Garema Stage in Garema Square.

First Aid services

Your safety is our priority, and our first aid services are conveniently located next to the information tents.

If you need medical assistance during the festival, find it

  • behind the Smartraveller Garema Stage in Garema Square
  • in Glebe Park, near the corner of Akuna Street and Cooyong Street
  • around the festival – first aid attendants will be strolling through the festival crowds.

To pinpoint the first aid tents, check our festival map.

Festival quiet space

The festival can be a busy place with lots of sounds, smells, and colour.

To support anyone who needs some downtime, we have set up a quiet space in the Theo Notaras Multicultural Centre.

More information about the quiet space and other relaxing locations available, check out our accessibility and inclusion information.
