Frequently Asked Questions

TICKETS

Is there free entry for under 12s?

Yes, however, minors must be accompanied by at least one responsible adult at all times. Dragon Dreaming staff do not consider 18 year old friends to be responsible adults so please ensure all supervision is adequate and age appropriate.

Are there locals tickets?

We offer discounted tickets to Wee Jasper/Yass locals (with a postcode of 2582). Email info@dragondreaming.com.au with a scan of your licence to organise.

Are there tickets available on the gate?

We recommend purchasing pre-sold tickets. We will announce on socials and update this page if and when they are no longer available. 

Do I get a free ticket because my birthday is during the event?

We are happy to announce that we are doing 1/2 price Birthday Passes for 2024. This means if you were born between the 4th - 7th October, we’re giving you the best birthday present ever - a 1/2 price 4-day Festival Pass!

If you’re one of our lucky birthday dreamers, send an email with a copy of your ID to info@dragondreaming.com.au ASAP and we’ll organise your 1/2 price ticket code. If you’ve already bought a ticket, send the order confirmation along with your ID so we can refund the paid Festival Pass (excl. Thurs Entry & Car Pass) and send you a new Birthday Pass.

The cutoff date for Birthday Pass requests/refunds is Monday 18th September 2024.  No Birthday Passes or refunds will be issued at the gate or after the event.

Birthday Passes are not refundable, exchangeable or transferable. Birthday Pass holders must present photo ID to gain entry to the festival.

Is this festival suitable for children?

Dragon Dreaming is a welcoming space for both the young and young at heart. We have a dedicated children’s area with activities and workshops and a wonderful bush environment to explore and play within. Children do need to be accompanied by a responsible adult at all times. 

Can I transfer my ticket to a friend or get a refund?

All tickets are non-refundable. You will have the opportunity to sell your ticket or do a name change in the near future (hold tight - date to be confirmed), in accordance with our ticket terms and conditions.  

Do I need to bring ID?

Yes. The name on your current photo ID must match the name on the ticket or entry may be refused. This is the same for any other tickets purchased such as Early Entry or a Car Pass. If you need to do a name change you will need to do that via Tixel for a fee.

When and how will I receive my ticket?

Your ticket(s) will be emailed upon purchase to the email account you registered when you purchased the tickets. If you can't find your ticket(s), head to your email inbox and search 'order@humanitix.com' or 'Dragon Dreaming' to retrieve your confirmation email. If you still can't locate it, please contact us at info@dragondreaming.com.au and we can organise to get it resent to you.


Can I work for a ticket?

Like all events, Dragon needs a team of fearless volunteers for various tasks before, during and after the event. Volunteer applications will open later this year. In the meantime, go ahead and buy your ticket now so we can refund it later in exchange for your work.

Keep an eye on our socials or subscribe to our newsletter for announcements about volunteer applications. 

LOCATION

How do I get there?

Dragon Dreaming is held at Cooradigbee Homestead, 542 Caves Rd, Wee Jasper.  See www.dragondreaming.com.au/WeeJasper/Reserves for the site location, including other campsites in the Wee Jasper valley.

Can I swim in the lake?

Of course! The festival is held on the shore of Lake Burrinjuck and the waters are usually the perfect temperature for swimming. We'll have lifeguards stationed at the water's edge during daylight hours, and ask that you refrain from swimming after dark for your own safety. Children must be supervised in the water at all time.

Can I bring a campervan/caravan?

Yes but please follow the specific instructions of traffic wardens on site. Parts of the site are not suitable for heavy or towed vehicles, which could get bogged. Our staff know where access is best, so listen to their advice.

Can I hire accommodation on site?

We will be providing a Glamping opportunity at the 2024 event. And we can promise incredible sunrises, lake views, and more stunning scenery at your camp site!

Can I bring my gas stove?

In the case of a total fire ban, gas cookers will not be permitted at the event unless professionally fitted to a campervan or part of a food stall. Keep an eye on the event page for updates closer to the event.

Nearest place to refuel/buy groceries

Yass is the closest town to grab some cash, supplies and petrol.

When do gates open?

Gates open Friday 4th of October 2024 (time to be confirmed). Please don’t arrive earlier (unless you have an EARLY ENTRY PASS which permits you entry from Thursday 3rd of October 2024). There are several campsites nearby operated by the Community organisation Wee Jasper Reserves. The nearest campground is Carey's Reserve. Details are available at https://weejasperreserves.com.au

Do the gates close overnight?

Yes. To reduce the risks of driver's fatigue, this year we'll be closing our gates overnight each night. Please plan ahead so that you arrive during gate open times and are able to make it into the event. Gate open and close times are as follows:

  • Friday: gates open 9am and close 12am Saturday morning
  • Saturday: gates open 10am and close at 10pm
  • Sunday: gates open 10am and close 6pm

APPLICATIONS

How do I get involved?

Applications for musicians, performers, artists, workshops and markets will open in March. Keep an eye on our socials or subscribe to our newsletter for announcements about applications.

WHAT TO BRING

Can I bring my dog?

We know you love your pet too much to place it in a confusing and scary environment with loud noises, flashing lights and many people, so we won’t take that question seriously. If you’re stuck, there are kennels for your pooch in Yass.

Can I bring my own soundsystem?

We’re going to stick up for your sleepy neighbours and say no. Nobody wants to hear your track selection at a festival unless you were booked to play on a stage.

Can I bring my own generator?

No. Generators are both a fire hazard and make you an obnoxious neighbour. Those people next to you REALLY do not want to be woken by the noise or exhaust fumes in their tent. Any generators found on site will be confiscated and kept in a secure location awaiting collection as you exit the festival.

Can I bring alcohol?

Dragon Dreaming is a BYO event and no alcohol can be purchased on site. We strongly encourage all patrons to be responsible with the consumption of alcohol and warn that drunkenness is not considered a defense under our ‘no dickheads’ policy. NO GLASS. Please help keep our site safe.

What should I bring?

Food and drink (they will be available on site but you may want to bring some snacks and your favourite beverage). Adequate shelter- not only your tent but don’t forget a tarp or marquee to sit under with your mates (No blue tarps, they break up and leave micro-rubbish). Hat and sunblock. Your best attitude. Clothing for all weather. Money- there are ATMs on site, but best to bring some also. Tent, sleeping gear and communal shelter. Torch, batteries. Don’t forget your eski and toothbrush! FABULOUS COSTUMES! Reusable water bottle/container. Butt bin if you are a smoker. An open heart, and care and consideration for your fellow dreamers - we all need to look after each other!

FACILITIES

Is there drinking water on site?

There will be plenty of drinking water available on site for free so please bring your reusable water bottle.

What do we do with our rubbish?

Dragon Dreaming is a ''Leave a Positive'' Trace event. Everything you bring to the event you will need to take home with you. There will be bins within the festival precinct but they will be ONLY for your market food scraps and 10c refundable cans. When you are in your camp please keep your camp area tidy and pick up all of the little things like ciggy butts, zip ties, ring pulls, etc before you go. When we are not there, many animals and birds call it home. We are only borrowing this land so please help us to reduce the impact that we have on it.  Remember if you PACK IT IN you PACK IT OUT!

Are there ATMs on site?

Yes. 

Is there mobile reception?

Tune in and drop out, they say, and we agree. You will be unable to check your Instagram, Facebook or Tinder while at Dragon.  Live in the now and with the fact you won’t be checking your phone for a few days. Dragon staff will have access to communications for emergencies. Please do not hesitate to reach out to a crew member if required.

Will there be showers?

There are no showers on site. While there is a refreshing lake for swimming, we ask patrons not use any detergent or washing products in the water to get clean.

WAIT!!!

I have more questions that aren't answered here!

If you have a question relating to your ticket, please email tickets@dragondreaming.com.au. If you have another query that you haven't been able to find an answer to, please email us at info@dragondreaming.com.au. We will do our best to get back to you in a reasonable timeframe.

When must we leave paradise (site)?

As much as we would love to dream together forever, everyone must vacate site by midday on Tuesday the 8th of October 2024.

Whats included in my industry ticket?

If you are an industry professional you may have been lucky enough to purchase an industry ticket. This industry ticket is a 4 day festival pass that gives you entry Friday - Monday. Early Entry and Car Passes are sold separately and are best pre-purchased as the gate prices are higher.
