Yours and Owls 2021 have announced some changed to the festivals format to ensure a safe and socially distanced experience for punters. Moving from its home of Stuart Park, Wollongong, now finds its home in another beautiful green space, Wollongong's Dalton Park.
Organisers are pulling out all the stops to make the festivals 2021 edition one of its most memorable, rolling out not one, but two revolving stages, record players and Lazy Susans, in an Australian first. The site will be split into four separate zones to reduce risk with the stages in the centre of the field. All festival patrons will have perfect view of the main stages from every zone, with large LED screens and state-of-the-art PA's.
Each zone will be self-contained with its own entry and exits, a smaller stage giving a secondary space to consume music, main bar, cocktail bar, dining area, hand-picked food stalls, toilets, water refill stations, phone charging, merch stores, hand sanitising stations and friendly COVID safety marshals to answer any questions upon arrival. From today, attendees have seven days to submit a request for your preferred zone via the Zone Preference Form.
