What a fuck up. I have just arived home to sydney and I am pretty pissed off with this whole event- and from the people I spoke to I'm not Robinson Caruso there.

Granted, the organisers can not control the weather, but they can organise around it, and if necessary make the call to put the event off (anyone heard of the term "alternative venue" for fuck's sake?). In the minimum they should have supplied accurate and useful information about the situation to punters prior to entering the site, so that an informed decision could be made. I can only suggest negligent greed is the reason the promoters still encouraged people through the gates on Friday, stating that there would be an alternative road out which was to be gravelled, when no such road existed or was accessible. I have also been told since that the road flooded over on Thursday night also, a fact that they forgot to mention which if accurate should have been disclosed.

We walked (and waded) out of the site and to Tenterfield yesterday (despite the organisers demands that we do not) leaving my mate's car behind. In tenterfield we met others forced to do the same thing. There is no way that a non-4WD car is driving out of there if there is any more rain this week, it's too sloppy. The organisers solution was that we just bunker down for a week or so and see what happens. Unfortunately we have jobs to go to, so a massive walk, wait and 12 hours on a Greyhound later we are here, while all our stuff is there.

The entire party was comprised of mud and flowing water over the dance floor up to a foot deep. Most of the acts did no show up. There was not a single (that I could find) portaloo on site, meaning that there were turds scattered all around the (high ground) outskirts. The sound system was about 20k by my reckoning, nothing like as chunky as advertied. No announcements were made about the flooding situation at all, and the only information we got was through gossip and chinese whispers, until we approached the SES guys ourselves. The cops also told us that they were not notified of the event (though this may or may not be true).

All in all this party was shithouse. Partly due to the weather, but moreso due to the incompetent, negligent and greedy attitude of the promoters. I just hope that all the other people I spoke to who were pissed off have long term memory and don't go to this event next year or ever again.

Where do we get our refunds from, and will the promoters be paying damages incurred as a result of their negligence?

There were between 700-900 people stuck there by my reckoning when I left Sunday mid-morning. It then poured down Sunday night which would have wet the mud even more and filled up the creek again. The SES said that the forecast was for rain all week.

I did not see many of the Sydney people there really, just a few.

I have not been entirely fair above, on the fip side, by and large the music was good.

Your frustration is understandable. sorry you had such a crap time (pun intended)

I pulled out at the last minute and have been living via the interweb, so am keen for any news.

At least the tunes were good.

Dear herbs & spices


I thought you might like to know that the Peats Ridge Festival was cancelled this year due to the exact same problem the weather, even though they would have lost lots of cash the safety of the crowd was the first priority.

Love Sanj

PS. Sorry you had a bad time, hope to see you at Recommended Solutions 6, thats if weather permitting.

XXXXXXXXX

mate the promoters were right you should have staid on site

it is far safer to remain on site than to try and cross flooded rivers
it is the basic principle of all survival rules that all emergency agencies drill into us

also the cops and other services knew they were there

cant have something that big with out them knowing

ok maybe a bit more news from the promoters on whats happending may have helped
but still coming on here to bad moth them cause it got a little to wet for the rivers in the area is just poor form

Can the road be sealed before the party?

I have to agree for the most part. I just managed to make my way back to Sydney. Left my car behind with a couple of friends. I've got a flight to catch tomorrow for Asia, so I absolutely had to be back here.

The organisation was abysmal in every sense. They really give the impression that they have no clue about how to run an event. They should never have allowed the thing to go ahead considering the weather. We were there first thing on Friday morning and already the road into the festival was terrible - we got bogged twice on the way in, and we were definitely part of the first 50 or so cars to arrive. The road in was extremely long and really not designed to accomodate the number of cars they expected to show up (they sold 600 tickets before the festival and expected another 400). Mud mud mud everywhere.

Food-wise - what the hell was with the chai tent? I mean, we all came prepared with food, but at a festival this size you usually expect to be able to get a decent feed onsite. The woman who ran the joint there was positively batshit. She would argue with customers continuously, rant on about how we should eat lighter and lighter meals until we only needed light to survive - I guess at this point we're supposed to form a singularity and merge with the cosmos - rant at god up in the sky, while apologising for casting magic spells, and generally take more than 20 minutes to serve each customer. Hygiene at this food outlet, the ONLY food outlet, was non-existent. Raw vegetables would be handled by 2 or 3 different employees, with no attention being paid to keep their hands clean that I could see.

The toilet facilities were severely lacking. 3 toilets for 1000 people. Seriously. What the fuck.

The music was decent, as was the sound system, but really so much else was lacking. There was very little in the way of decor. I've been to so many one-night doofs with much much MUCH better decor. In fact, I'd go so far as to say that this was the most minimal doof I've been to, decor-wise.

All in all, a shit and very expensive weekend. I don't blame them for the weather, but I blame them for not having adequate contingency plans, and for a general lack of organisation and professionalism. The first _bad_ doof I've been to, and I've been to a few that saw it rain all night, so it certainly wasn't just the weather.

That said, I had a rather enjoyable adventurous journey home, hitching a lift with some kind folk heading back to Byron Bay, avoiding the rising floodwaters in Casino and hopping on a Greyhound back from Ballina, managing to make in through Woodburn without getting washed off the Pacific Highway.

Sorry if this seems overly ranty, I just feel frustrated with the overall dodgy feel about the whole festival.

Mate, saying there was not an option for me.

As I said I don't blame them for the weather, it's the organisation (or lack thereof) that I think sucked. Worse still was the decision to go ahead with the festival in the circumstances, as well as the misinformation we received.

Anyway I still take your opinion on board.

So I'm not the only person to have a bad experience. Unfortunately this was to be my first doof and festival. I didn't make it there because I got cut off and my car received severe water damage. Now I'm with out a car and a big bill.

It will teach me not to trust my own intuition. The weather system and weather was something that was a concern at least a week leading up to this. Having lived in the far north up in Cairns, one can understand how unpredictable it can be and how much water can come down from a massive low pressure system.

If I had gone earlier I might of got there and got stranded and then in the predicament other people found themselves in this review. But I still got in a lot of trouble and lucky it didn't cost me my life. Whats the point with the official website? Both organisers had no updates in regards to weather and conditions.

So now I have this useless 2nd round pre purchased ticket through oztix that cost me $80, that I'm unlikely to get a refund. My parents are fuming and are going to get legal advice. This is a mess and goes further then just bad luck . I take responsibility for my own actions but I fail to see how the operators of this festival are going to get away with negligence.

Going by the few reviews of people who made it there but had to put there life at risk to get out because of work or flights or what ever reason. Then the disgusting situation of only 3 toilets and people defecating leaving a health risk. Topping that off the sub standard installations etc , then maybe I wasn't to bad off overall. It is better to try and see something positive then all negative. I'm just going to have to calm my parents whom are really pissed as it was they who brought the car.

I don't think them seeing Peta Costello on the ABC news helped the situation. It only infuriated them more. Where was this Ziv? (website) as my parents said "how typical to get a young pretty girl to front the media and try and play it all down."

I'm sure this would not be fair to be a reflection of how all festivals are run. It was good to read that another festival made a decision to cancel it due to rain . What was this Peta and Ziv thinking ? Considering the location and geographical aspect of the site? Island.

Oh well lesson learned. Will it be theirs, will patrons give them another opportunity. Sorry not this duck.

I think people posting their experiences and opinions here is a good thing, good or bad. I think the thread title is crap though.

Re: The entry ticket that is unused.. you should give the organisers an oppurtunity to address ticketing/refunds etc officially FIRST before you jump up and down about it.

Also. can you tell us how your car got water damaged?

Yes both good and bad experiences should be expressed. It will help the scene realise where problems are, or how well ogranised an event has run. Future parties can always learn from this.

Small one night Doofs seem to run well, and usually need less planning. But multiday festivals are different and definately need a lot more planning and resourses. If short cuts are taken, problems will and do occur. There is much respect to some of our countries long standing festival organisers, they may at times seem like nazis at times, but proper job done had made the majority of all the festivals over the years a wonderful experience.

Of course we must remember we are in the world of Outdoor Doof! Anything and everything will happen. Its always best to enjoy what nature will bring! Rain, Hail, Shine, snow, frost, flood, heatwave.... (I would have loved to have been stuck out there for days cut off from the world, but didn't make it in time before being cut off getting in.)

One problem I am seeing with some parties in general is communication. (as seen on many chat forums). Punters trying to contact organisers, and organisers leaving updates for punters. If a site is isolated (many are) then a point of contact should be available somewhere, even if its relay form. This will help with emergancies, updates and punters questions.

what a complete disaster. bobret and i were meant to play on the saturday night but due to the floods it was physically impossible to get to the party. we got picked up from the airport on friday by some friends of the organisers and made it as far as the last dirt track on the way into the venue at about midnight.

at this point there were a whole bunch of people camped at the entrance to the road and some guy warned us not to go down the track as there were cars bogged up to their doors in mud and a flood on its way. we decided to head back to tenterfield for the night and check into a hotel and then try again in the morning.

on saturday morning we found out that the area had been declared a natural disaster zone and that the SES were preparing to evacuate some people and drop in supplies by helicopter. we contacted ziv onsite and were informed that whoever was in was stuck there and whoever didnt make it would not be able to get in.

we figured our chances of getting into the party were shithouse but we went to the site several times later in the day to investigate and found that the police and SES had blocked the road right at the beginning and were turning people back. according to them the only road into the party was covered 3 metres high and 100metres wide with floodwater and there were cars fully submerged.

since the highway was also flooded we were forced to stay in a hotel in tenterfield until sunday. the main stage sound system was also staying at the same hotel as they were unable to get the truck into the party on the friday. im sure that the lack of amenities, food stalls, infrustructure and decor mentioned in the above posts were also missing for the same reasons and that these things were beyond the organisers control. i met some of the decor artists and people who were meant to do stalls at the hotel and they were in the same position as us.

please dont put all the blame on the promoter without knowing all the info. im sure a lot of these things were beyond their control and the fact that they actually kept the party going for the people who were stuck in there despite the circumstances is rather impressive. i feel quite sorry for them actually, just as i do for all the people who drove all the way from sydney, melbourne, cairns, etc and didnt get to party. a lot of people (both those involved and the punters) lost out on this one big time.

the whole situation is just a real damn shame but at the same time its good that no-one died as a result of the hazardous conditions. it could have been a lot worse. i hope simon, amber, esha, russ and whoever else of our friends who made it in early are all ok and not stuck there for too long. give us a call when you guys make it out.

heres the latest...

http://news.ninemsn.com.au/article.aspx?id=94993

About 1,000 people stranded at an all-ages music festival near Tenterfield are expected to be able to cross a river to freedom about lunchtime on Wednesday.

But a spokesman for Mr Rees said impatient drivers trying to leave the Freakreation Festival on Monday night had set back efforts.

"The council was working late into the night last night rectifying the access road but at some point people have removed police gates and left the property," he said.

"During this they have affected the road and put back the council's efforts about 12 hours.

"The workers weren't too happy."

tripn Thanks for your comments because you do make some very valid points. Sure I have no doubt that what you are saying is correct.

This should be taken into account. According to the set time list it wasn't due to start till Fri - 5.30pm . My friends tell me that other festivals always have a strict gate opening time and that is the day before normally. Considering the weather conditions off the east coast the whole week beforehand and the topographrical nature of the site. A decision could of been made to evacuate before the main deluge on the Friday night. I'm sure the tell true signs were there. But this I'm sure will all come under some official investigation .

My mistake and I take full responsibility was to not go the way as advertised. But I had to work till Friday afternoon and decided to go the way through Beaudesert. I took a risk as I shouldn't have my car car stalled and I was lucky to get a tow out by four wheel drive who helped me straight away. Basically my car floor interior got soaked and its in not too bad . I was lucky I got out when I did .

Yes it is unfair to jump to conclusions with out all the facts. But before I left I checked the website, had a funny feeling or say gut instinct. I have learned my lesson. I just have to calm my parents. So to be fair I take your account with respect and leave it to a likely formal investigation by the authorities.

Peace.

also feel sorry for the promoters.poor buggers, but I am more concerned for the punters.

but - Why did I get a call from the site on sat morning, stating it was bloody clear at 3pm friday arvo that noone was gunna be able to drive in, yet people were still paying to get in?. If a punter & 1st time doofer knew there was trouble why didn't the promoters (odd) Why couldn't the conditions be communicated? and why was there no announcement? Why did people leave Sydney 2hrs after the road was fucked without this information.??

who knows? millions of reasons I guess.

~ saw some of our guys in the news and in pics on oztrance and that's good.. Just wish I was there to help out.. but never fear, I suppose, the psybogan heroes are there and if they could get goa gil outta the regen site in the rain, I'm sure all will be well.

but yeah, please check in when you do return.

Herbs and Spices, in the name of balance and diplomacy I emplore you to edit the name you have chosen for this thread to something more impartial. I found Freakration to be a quite amazing experience - I had a fantastic time and learnt a lot and share none of the emotionally negative judgements you have expressed.
When I get a chance a bit later, I'll fill out the 'other' point of view along with some photos and hopefully by then the thread name will have been altered. Don't be so presumptuous as to think an entire review should gather under the self-important and passionately biased statement of your personal opinion/experience.

I agree with niium on the name or title of this thread. Yes balance and diplomacy. I'm sure for those that got stranded on the site, there will be those who had good / bad / inbetween experiences. People's circumstances are different and I'm sure this has a bearing as well. Natural disasters happen and being in bush makes the situation difficult for all. But the most sensible approach to all this must be that people learn from it. VJ Damage made the most appropriate point
also feel sorry for the promoters.poor buggers, but I am more concerned for the punters.
More and better communication and a bit more honesty. Never again will I risk it after feeling a touch of uncertainty regarding the low pressure system off the east coast. Further to that I'm going to be a lot more cautious in choosing a festival to be my first one. Well I guess Freakreation was to be my first but no longer. So a fresh start for me :D

Done- in the name of diplomacy, and serious business. No one was compelling you to post under the thread, though I appreciate your point.

I hope to hear your positive story soon. Perhaps you could subhead it "Freakreation Festival of Awesomeness". :D

Freakreation festival -> Freakreation Doof -> Freakreation, the evacuation.

My son, wife and my own experience at this "doof" was also very positive. The highlight for me was to see so many smiling faces on the dance floor on Monday. The attitude of those who I spoke to was not only accepting but generally positive about the whole situation.

To the police who played a very low key role, thank you for keeping the few 'restless' ones reassured and focused on working with everyone to get us all out, at some point.

To the SES, thank you for the food, water, other assorted necessities and chance to watch helicopters play an important role at a 'doof'.

To the Tenterfield Shire Council, thank you for fixing the road and being so informative, you guys new what you were talking about from the minute you started working until the last of you waved me on my way down the main road. It was nice to be given a time frame, which you were able to achieve within reason.

To the people who continuously ripped up the access road on our side of the river even though we couldn't get out, I hope you do not need a favor from me any time in the near future.

To the organizers, thank you for the efforts that you made, particularly to keep the tunes going for 4 days (or more). The rain cover at the main was greatly appreciated. However, my only criticisms are a lack of communication and a lack of commitment to preserving the road inside the island. I understand that the whether is what resulted in the lack of food and stages but I would like to think that you did everything in your power prior to the down pour.

Some of the music was fantastic but I heard way, way, way too much electro for my liking.

P.s. We got out Tuesday afternoon at about 5:30pm in a two wheel drive with a trailer.

Have fun and stay safe

I posted this in the party thread, but thought I'd put it in here to - and for the record - I have a great time! I always make the most of whatever situation I find myself in.

I went out there after work on Friday night from Brisbane. We arrived near the site around 1am to find a bunch of cars stopped near a river crossing and not wanting to drive through a very muddy track. My friend and I decided to go for a wander up the track to see if we could get our cars through, as we went along the very muddy track we came across several bogged cars is low lying areas and we eventually made it to the front gate, after walking for about 15 min. Since we didn’t have anything with us we went back to our cars and decided not to risk taking our cars in. I slept in my car and awoke in the morning around 7am to see the creek crossing that was several metres away from my car was now only a meter away. I moved my car to higher ground back up the road.

We decided to go for a walk into the party to see what was happening, my friends grabbed some supplies and off we went, we had to wade through quite a bit of water to get through at some points, we arrived to the part of the track where cars had gotten bogged the night before. One car had water up to the door handles and several others in the area were also very close to having water go through them, lucky the water from that creek didn’t get much higher and only 1 car got flooded on the inside.

Once we finally made our way to the front gate we discovered there was a very flooded creek crossing we had to pass to get into the party. My friends and some other people waded through carrying their things above their heads with water up to their arm pits, but there was no current at this point. I decided not to go across as I had no dry clothes with me or anything else for that matter. I had a chat with the people on the front gate who were about to close the door so they could get back into the party. Then I decided to go back to my car and get some plastic bags and supplies to take across. I came back to the crossing about 45min to an hour later. The water level had risen by about 2 meters and there was a very strong current. At this point I decided there was no way I was going across! So I hung out on that side for the day, I watched some other people swim across the flooded creek upstream where it wasn’t as wide, but I’m not a strong swimmer and its been drilled into me since I was a kid that it is extremely dangerous to swim in flooded creeks, so I didn’t feel I wanted to risk my life or be cold & wet for the rest of the party. But luckily everyone that did swim across made it across safely.

Several creek crossings on the way into the party had risen and were not crossable on Saturday, so those of us stuck on the other side of the party could not leave either, and no one was coming in, only SES and police in 4WD’s. Some people got through late on Saturday afternoon. Only to find that they couldn’t get to the party anyway.

Some police came in and told us what the situation was around 7pm on Saturday night, that we couldn’t get out unless we had a 4WD, but if we did get to Tenterfield, most of the Highways were flooded anyway. And they were hoping the water would go down by morning. So being in a state of emergency, stuck in the middle – we did what any keen doofers would do – we had our own party!! Cranked the stezza in someones car and all just partied on for the night, there were about 20 – 30 of us stuck there, so we made the most of it!.

By morning the crossing to the party had dropped a lot and we were able to wade through it with the water about waist deep. Its was about a 15/20 min walk to the dance floor through a LOT of mud! Everyone seemed to be pretty well set up and in reasonably high spirits considering the circumstances. I hung out for the day but decided since I had to work today and I had the opportunity to get out that I would, or I could be stuck on the island with nothing for the night.

I made the mission back to my car around 6pm, some people had driven across the crossing which was making it worse, and then I came across some guys who were really bogged digging a trench across the track to drain the water out the hole they were bogged in – this is gunna make it hard for everyone else to get out! Some people really have no idea! They had closed the gate at the crossing in order to stop people trying to get out, hopefully it worked. On my way out a big storm was brewing and down the road I hit the storm, really heavy rain, I had to drive about 10km/h as the rain was so heavy I couldn’t see, and then there were storms all round when I got out near Tenterfield. So I’m hoping the storms didn’t hit the party very much and that everyone is still doing ok. I had a great lightning show from Tenterfield through to Cunninghams Gap!

The SES helicopter was taking in food/water & medical supplies, but most importantly – genie fuel!!! As long as the music is still going people will be happy, the only problem will be the lack of alcohol!

And that is my Freakreation adventure!!

woooooooo, i had a fekin mental time. even if it was a complete shambles, and the guys in the office were very rude(this may be because they were pretty stressed out). anyways, i had a wiked time, met lots of very lovely people and danced me tits off. i hope the organisers dnt get to much stick.

and yeh the tioiulets worked very well, cant complain about them atall.

considereing the circumstances i thnk it went with a bang, definetly one for the history books.
peace
