A Dummies Guide To MTV Beats & Eats 2017
Are you heading to this year's MTV Beats & Eats festival?
Here are all the answers to every possible question you might have. A complete 101, dummies guide.
TICKETS & I.D
Firstly, if you don't already have tickets, you can still purchase them here for $49 (Be quick, they're going fast!) or at the door for $59.
Because MTV Beats & Eats is an 18+ event, make sure you don't forget your I.D. when entering the festival because security will ask you for it. On that note, all bags will be checked when entering too. Once you’re in, that’s it, there’s no pass outs!
FYI there will also be police dogs present.
HOW TO GET THERE
MTV Beats & Eats is on Saturday, 18 November at Stuart Park in Wollongong, NSW. Here's how you can get there:
Wollongong is easily accessible by car via the F6 Southern Freeway, but it’s just as simple to catch a train on the South Coast Line towards Kiama with Beats & Eats services running each hour.
For more details, head to the Sydney Trains website.
And once you’re in ‘The Gong’, there are plenty of options for getting around:
Shuttle Bus: Did we mention it’s free? Getting around the CBD is made easy with the shuttle operating every 10 minutes from 7am to 6pm on weekdays and every 20 minutes between 8am and 6pm on weekends. For more info, head here.
Train: You can also catch trains to some of the beautiful coastal towns just outside of Wollongong including Shellharbour and Kiama. For more info, click here.
