If you decide to drive, you can park your car right by the venue for the weekend. However, because you’ll be camping on the Defqon.1 Island, you won’t have access to your car for the weekend, so make sure you take everything you need. There are NO PASS OUTS. Parking on Friday September the 19th will be via the Gate C entrance at the Regatta Centre, which is accessed from Old Castlereagh Rd.

The parking fee for the whole weekend is only $20.


Once you’ve arrived by car or shuttle bus, you’ll need to grab your gear and your mates and head to the Defqon.1 Main Entrance. Please note, Security will check all of your bags and gear for any prohibited items before you head to the campgrounds. Once you get to the campgrounds, you will be given a brief induction to the island and a safety brief.

Then you’re off to your accommodation for the weekend where you can get settled in, take in the fresh air and party!
