North West Festival is an 18+ event, however patrons under 18 are permitted if they have a valid ticket and are accompanied at ALL times by their parent. Note that under 18s are not permitted in the VIP area.
All parents are required to complete a Family Welfare Registration Form before entering the festival site.
We encourage you to print off and fill in the Family Registration form prior to the show to save time at the entry point. Download the form here.
Please note that children aged 4 years old and under do not need a ticket – they get free entry to the festival, however the same family registration process still applies.
There will be a dedicated Chill Zone at the festival this year thanks to BHP Billiton, which will be a separate shaded area near the stage for families where you can bring picnic rug and sit down with your children away from the activity of the festival.
