  • At our Festivals, environmental considerations are an integral part of our business practices. As part of this commitment to the environment, suppliers are obligated to reduce the environmental impact of their products, services and waste emissions.

The guidelines set forth by the festival include the following areas:

    Please ensure you use only compostable materials e.g.: serving plates, cutlery, cups etc. Only compostable serving items will be allowed. Please note we will be conducting site audits to ensure you comply with this request. These items will be available to order via our supplier, a link with these details will be sent to you once your application is approved. Any items that may have a negative environmental impact on the festival site are banned e.g.: single-use plastic, lollipop sticks, glow sticks, plastic straws etc.
    Where practical, we encourage the sourcing and use of locally grown and produced products. The use of these products reduces your carbon footprint and therefore the footprint of the festival. However, we understand that because we encourage diversity, sometimes this may not be achievable, so please let us know if the uniqueness of your product does not enable this.
    Packaging which is not essential to the use, distribution, retail sale, storage or safety of your products should be avoided. Packaging or utensils which are essential for these purposes MUST BE constructed from 100% renewable resources. For example: compostable corn starch cutlery.
  • RE-USE
    Where compliant with health and other regulations permit, and where practicable, packaging should be designed for re-use. For example:
    • to be re-filled at your stall with the same product;
    • to be returned to your stall and be re-used; or
    • to be re-used by our patrons for the same or a similar purpose.


  • Please ensure you clean up before you go. If you leave – or if it looks like you’ve left – milk crates, bread crates, oil drums, gas cylinders or other large waste behind you will be charged a $500 fee.


  • No pre-packaged drinks or drinks sold in PET containers are allowed. ONLY compostable products, canned non-alcoholic beverages to be sold by vendors. Homemade drinks in a compostable cups are fine.
  • Non-recyclable packaging of any kind, cigarettes, body piercing/tattooing service, pets/animals, studded leather/studded products, permanent tattoo service, professional still cameras, laser lights, drones, paint and spray cans, fireworks, plastic products/bottles, water pistols, weapons, milk crates and bread crates must be secured, Styrofoam and other environmentally unfriendly products. Any products that can be used as a weapon are banned from our event. Do not attempt to sell or give away any of these products from your stall. Any stalls found with these products will be closed down immediately and excluded from future events. Any stalls that leave behind a mess will be required to pay a waste fee of $500.


  • With the help of traders, patrons, staff and volunteers, UpBeat Events Festival want to become sustainable event managers. Being sustainable means that we not only plan for waste minimisation, but that we also monitor practices throughout our events’. This means that the basic guidelines stipulated by the festival will be followed by each of our traders otherwise they risk the chance of not being invited back.


  • Your role begins by providing only biodegradable (compostable) packaging to patrons and ensuring that only reusable, biodegradable or recyclable products are used within your stall (note that only plastic codes with the ID code 1 through to 7 are recyclable at this event).

It is essential that you:

  • Avoid polystyrene (Styrofoam), plastic bags, plastic straws, single-use plastic sachets – THESE ITEMS ARE BANNED.
  • Use cardboard cups for hot drinks and paper or compostable plastic cups for cold. DO NOT SERVE DRINKS WITH A LID UNLESS REQUESTED. Lids must also be compostable.
  • Use compostable serving ware or reusable crockery instead of plastic or paper disposable plates.
  • Correctly place items into the composting, recycling and garbage bins.
  • Use packaging that is reusable or constructed from renewable/recyclable sources.
  • Non-compostable packaging and serving ware is BANNED.
  • Avoid unnecessary packaging. e.g.: offer bulk condiments; do not offer plastic straws or plastic bags.
  • Provide reusable items where possible.
  • Helping with litter control – Stallholders are responsible for litter around their site.
  • Any stall holders who fail to comply with the above sustainability policies may be forced to cease operations until compliance is achieved. This will cost you valuable trading hours so please do the right thing in the first place. This includes following all directions from our waste management group, the Green Team.


  • While we have security on site, it’s unlikely to be focused on your particular stall. Wrap up and secure your stall as best you can. Remove items of value that are easy to steal. The festival will not be held liable for any items that go missing or are stolen. It is your responsibility to ensure all hire equipment gets collected.


  • Due to the nature of this event (continual updates and changes going on in the background) – Site allocation information, Bump in / Bump out details and parking information is sent out no later than 2 business days leading up the event.
  • This is the most testing time of day for everyone so please be understanding, patient and kind to one another.
    While we try to accommodate everyone as best we can you may not be able to drive right up to your stall.  If you are able to park and trolley in where-ever possible that would be very helpful!
  • When following the Bump in Bump out plan, please ensure you unpack all of your items and drive your car off site BEFORE setting up. This will make a great difference to everyone on the day!
