Walk around the ring road past each camp zone inside the campground and at the end you’ll find the main stage area. A tent, a bar, a stage and one of the greatest selections of talent you’ll see all year. If it’s cold bonfires will be lit for you to gather round or you can dance like the bejesus in the nude……whatever you like.
WAVE ROCK WEEKENDER SHOP
This is located at the main bar tent, and this is where you can borrow bikes, and get snacks, basic non-food supplies like bandaids, information, and Wave Rock and artist merchandise. Also game and sporting equipment loans.
The Wave Rock Weekender Cinema will show a unique and enlightened program of arthouse, environmental, desert-themed, and classic films, 24 hours a day for the duration of the event. Western Australian made short films will be also featured. The cinema is probably in an old bus again this year.
JAMS AND OTHER STUFF
Keep an ear out for late night music under the rock and campfire jams.
The main stage bar serves alcohol until 12:00AM. Respectfully-priced (some would say retro-priced) drinks are sold. The show is strictly an 18+ event, and Australian photo Id will be required for entry. No alcohol can be brought into the Wave Rock Weekender or the campground.
BRINGING ALCOHOL INTO THE SHOW CONTRAVENES OUR LICENSE, AFFECTS WASTE RECOVERY, AND PUTS THE EVENT IN JEOPARDY. ALL ALCOHOL WILL BE CONFISCATED.
FOOD AND COOKING
You’ll need to bring money to pay for food at the show.
An ATM is available at the roadhouse in town which is open from 6:30AM to 9:00PM, and cash out is available at the Wave Rock Caravan Park Kiosk from 8.00AM until 6:30PM for a small fee.
In keeping with our waste management goals for the event, all disposable containers for food and drink sold within the show site will be fully compostable, and should be disposed of accordingly in our special bins. You are also welcome to bring your own clean, reusable plates, cups and containers and get your food served in them to minimise waste.
There will be several food vendors in the campground. We’ll make sure the food is good and there are vegetarian options. If you have any concerns about what will be on offer, feel free to contact us.
The Camp Ground has several common BBQs you can use to cook for yourself. You can bring food with you, or shop in Hyden on Friday. The trading hours for Hyden shops are listed below.
If it’s absolutely necessary for you, you can bring a small gas stove for cooking on your camp site. Please be careful and considerate of other people.
FIRES AND HEATING
The event operates safe communal fires to keep you warm at night. Expert local pyrotechnicians will tend the fires for you. For safety reasons, no other fires will be allowed.
There are enough male and female toilets and showers for everyone, and there will be enough lighting for you to find them easily in the dark. Most are centrally located behind the main stage and on the edge of the campground. Please respect the environment and your fellow campers and keep your showers short.
You guys play a big part in making sure we divert as much waste as possible from landfill by separating your waste.
Our bin stations have three types of bins, this is where stuff goes:
Green Marked Bin: Compostable – includes all bar and café drink cups and food containers, food waste, and wet paper and cardboard.
Orange Marked Bin : Recyclable – includes clean paper, cardboard, plastic, our personal ashtrays (empty), glass, aluminium and steel cans.
Red Marked Bin: Other – includes ceramics, dirt, chemicals, rubber, and cigarette butts.
Other things to note:
- Disposable Cups from the bar are not plastic! Put them in the Compostable Bins!
- Disposable Hot Food Containers are not plastic! Put them in the Compostable Bins!
- Cigarette butts: Please don’t drop your cigarette butts on the ground – we can give you a No Butts personal ashtray instead. The ashtrays are available from the festival shop and bar, and are made of a heat resistant plastic that can be reused or recycled. Empty your butts into the Red Bins, and wash and reuse the ashtrays or put them in the Recyclables Bins.
- Please try to minimise bringing packaged products that will end up in the rubbish into the event site from home or local shops.
If you’re unsure about anything, please ask our staff or a camp monitor.
It’s crucial to the outcomes of the show that you think about the right bin to use before you throw stuff away. We know you’ll get it right!

Generally phone coverage other than Telstra 3G mobile stops at Corrigin so tweet your last there and switch off. The show is small, and we’ll have message boards at each camp zone so you shouldn’t have any problems hooking up with your friends. Think of it as an opportunity to tune out for the weekend!
There is a public phone in the camp ground so you can ring home and tell people how much fun they’re missing out on. There is an internet station in the kiosk in the camp ground if you need to log on (but why would you?).
The Wave Rock Weekender site is mainly flat, compacted sand and loose gravel. We’ll do what we can to assist anyone in a wheelchair to get around the site.
The information on this site is available in other formats, just ask us.
