We hope to provide a safe environment for RR Festival goers and for the whole family. There will be services available onsite or on-call in case of an medical emergency. We will have First-Aid available on site, plus access to the racecourse’s med bay in the main building.

Dehydration is a risk when you're spending time in the sun so please remember to keep yourself well hydrated & fed. Sun-stroke can cause major issues if you are exposed to the sun for long periods of the day.

If you or someone you observe may be distressed or suffering from any kind of medical emergency please DO NOT hesitate in alerting the nearest event security personal or RR Event Crew. If the problem cannot be resolved we will make the call to the emergency services located in Cromwell Town.


RR advise that it is best to get dropped off and/or arrange pick-ups for the day and night, or if your’e feeling fit a lovely stroll home to town would only take 20 minutes but please be aware that you will need to cross the main highway- Please take care and look both ways before crossing.

CROMWELL CABS are available but please book in advance but they will be making frequent trips out to the festival grounds and back again 

We have a camping option now available so you can stay onsite, which is a much better option in our opinion. $85pp for camp + entry ticket.

What else should I know?

Please respect the venue and everything inside our wonderful event. There will be a lot to see and partake in as well as our amazing music. There will be visual & live art on display so make sure you also respect their art enjoy it as much as we will.

Pace yourself! Eat enough, drink enough water (it’s really important to stay hydrated).. There will be FREE water available and well sign posted. 

Keep updated with RR through our FB Page & our Instagram.

Most of all, we want everyone to spread the word. Tell your friends/family that this will truly be the event of the summer. Cost effective for all ages, and a must for all music fans.
