MEDIA RELEASE

ISSUED – 6.30am Sunday 30th March

EMBARGO – NO EMBARGO USE IMMEDIATELY.


RAIN CAUSES DELAYS TO START OF 

V FESTIVAL 08


Due to the issues created by continued wet weather on the Gold Coast,

V Festival organisers have been forced to amend the starting time

to 2.00pm, rather than the originally advertised 12:45pm.


Despite this minor set back, V Festival will still roll into the Avica

Resort at Merrimac on the Gold Coast in all its glory with its full

complement of world class international acts. 


Tickets holders for the V Festival who are travelling to the event are

advised to delay their journey to the venue for two hours.  GATES

OPEN AT 2.00PM.  FIRST ACTS START AT 2.30PM.


Unfortunately, the change in start time means that Donnie Sloan &

Plug in City won't be able to play as scheduled.


TRANSPORT OPTIONS REMAIN THE SAME 

Catch the train to Robina Station and join the free* shuttle bus direct

to the V Festival!


V Festival will be running free* shuttle services to / from the Festival

at the Carrara Park & Ride facility, Robina Train Station & Queensland

Avenue, Broadbeach. Shuttle bus is free for V Festival pre-purchased

ticket holders only. Does not include train travel component.


There is NO PARKING at the venue or it’s close surrounds. All patrons

traveling by private vehicles must proceed to the designated Park &

Ride facility at Carrara Stadium.
