CAN I DRIVE INTO THE FESTIVAL EACH DAY?
Yes but not unless you have pre-purchased a Vehicle Day Pass from our ticketing page prior to the event. If you get to the event without a camping vehicle pass or a day vehicle pass, your vehicle won’t be allowed to stay on site.
Any attempts to park on Blessington rd surrounding the festival will result in being fined & towed.
CAN I GET DROPPED OFF AT THE FESTIVAL?
Yes, there is a drop off/pickup point for cars, Ubers and taxis located at the main gate. This could be quite busy during peak times so let your ride know there may be small delays.
ARE THERE BUSES?
There sure are. Buses will be shuttling regularly from the Launceston CBD to the Festival Main Gate for the duration of the event. The schedule will be released closer to the event but in the meantime you can purchase tickets through our ticketing page.
If you are coming from the airport there are no direct buses from the airport to the festival site. Your options include: catching a taxi, renting a car or catching the airport shuttle to the CBD where we offer a bus service to the festival.
If you intend to bring your car, motorbike, campervan or any other sort of motor vehicle you will be required to purchase a CAR PASS to bring your car onsite. Each person is only permitted to purchase ONE car pass and it will be associated with the name on their ticket.
Car passes are not included in the festival ticket and must be purchased additionally.
Day parking tickets cannot be used as a camping car pass and you will not be able to bring your car into the camp grounds with one.
Please note: PITP encourages car-pooling as not only a cost efficient and environmental initiative but also because driving to a festival with mates enhances the experience, yiew! We will be running a Car Pooling event on Facebook in January for you to seek/offer a ride.
STAYING AT THE FESTIVAL
CAN I CAMP?
You sure can. PITP is a camping festival, so if you want to camp just purchase a camping ticket along with a 2 or 3 day festival ticket. Camping passes can not be used with single day tickets.
Camping is NOT included in your ticket.
Please note: Camping is filled upon arrival so if you bring your car into the festival campgrounds it will not be able to leave until Sunday morning. If you want to camp with friends, you’ll need to travel in the same car or convoy.
HOW MANY CAMPING PASSES DO WE NEED?
Each patron that wishes to camp at the festival must purchase their own camping pass per person regardless of whether you are sharing a tent with another patron.
WHAT TIME CAN I ENTER THE FESTIVAL TO CAMP?
Sunday: Exit site by 12pm
CAN I LEAVE THE FESTIVAL AND COME BACK?
All patrons are free to come and go from the festival site but if you’ve driven into the campgrounds you cannot move your car out until Sunday 9th from 6am. If you do need to leave the site for whatever reason, you must not remove your wristband. You will not be issued with another one.
We have busses running too and from Launceston each day, bus tickets can be purchased via our ticketing page.
Alternatively you can be picked up and dropped off at the main gate.
WILL THERE BE FAMILY ONLY/ QUIET CAMPING AREA?
We do endeavour to reserve a corner of our campground for quiet/family camping, however, due to the small size of the site there will inevitably still be some noise. Let the parking staff know when you arrive that you would like to be placed in this area.
HOW DO I PAY FOR STUFF AT THE FESTIVAL?
For the third year PITP is using a cashless system throughout the festival at bars, foods stalls and merch. Your wristband has its own unique chip and number so you can top this up at the multiple top up stations around the festival site. There will still be eftpos available at the Merch Stall & VIP Bar. All bars will be cashless so to make a purchase you have to load up your 18+ wristband.
You can also skip the queues by topping up before even arriving on site! Instructions will be given closer to the event on how to preload your wristband with credit.
You can always redeem any extra credit so don’t be afraid to top up more than you need. Please note the minimum refund amount is $5 so please keep this in mind.
HOW DO I REDEEM MY LEFT OVER CREDIT?
You can redeem left over credit off your wristband at anytime during the event via the top up booths during opening hours, or go to www.pitp.com.au and follow the link to redeem your credit after the event.
*Please note this service closes one week after the event.
WHAT IF I LOSE MY WRISTBAND?
Your wristband is your lifeline, your identity and your cash at the festival so protect it with your life because without it we don’t know if you’re meant to be there and you will be asked to leave the event. We highly recommend taking a picture of the unique code on the back of your wristband so that you can still redeem any left over credit and block it from use if it is lost or stolen for any reason.
MEDIA AND PR
ALL THE REST

As the festival is held in country Tasmania, the temperature and weather conditions can vary. In the past temperatures have fluctuated from as high as 32 degrees during the day to 2 degrees in the evening. Be smart and wear sunscreen, and remember to pack the appropriate attire – beanies, scarves and layers are key! Don’t forget to bring a decent pair of boots.
We feel very fortunate to be able to put on such a special few days of madness and magic in the lush rolling hills of country Tasmania. But with such luck comes an incredible responsibility to keep our Paddock clean and well looked after. PITP is working towards our goal of a plastic free festival and will be employing a number of environmental initiatives in order to keep waste minimal. We ask that you are considerate of the space and use the bins provided, take your belongings with you and do your part to keep our Paddock clean.
If you have brought something into the festival that is on the contraband list it will be taken and stored until Sunday. You will be given a ticket marking your item for pick up on the Sunday after the festival from the Info Booth in the main arena. Please note that failure to pick up your items on the Sunday will forfeit any items.
*Alcohol and illegal contraband seized will be disposed of and can not be picked up after the festival.
* PITP will take all care, but no responsibility for any confiscated contraband items. If it’s important to you and on the contraband list, don’t bother bringing it to the Paddock in the first place!
Artist applications have closed for this year.
