Please Note:This article was prepared due to the large number of inquiries we have received by parents regarding the Good Life Under 18 Music Festival held at Flemington Race Course on the 9th of March 2012. Underage.com.au is a third party events portal. We are not affiliated with the event. However we have copied the following information from the Good Life Music Festival website for your convenience. For the most accurate information, please always refer to the official event website.

This includes parents wishing to come along with their kids or older siblings wishing to look after their young brother/sister. We employ Australia¡¯s best Security company; NEW BREED.

Our 2012 event will increase the amount of breath testing at the entry gates. We have 3 check ppints that all patrons must go through prior to entry. 1) bag checks, 2) metal detector, 3) breathalyser. This event is also smoke free and our security team do polity ask anyone caught smoking to extinguish their cigarette. It is however against the law for our security officers to confiscate cigarettes from anyone. It is your responsibility as a parent to educate your child on the dangers of smoking. We do not allow pass outs. Once your child has entered the event, we deter any reason for them to leave. We keep them in a secure and safe environment. Your child may leave early should you wish to pick them up prior to the close of the event. St Johns is on standby, they mostly treat the occasional sunburn or dehydration. But we have them ready to go should the need arise. Once again, better to be safe than sorry.We have 4 St Johns sites around the venue, along with an St Johns Van and a registered doctor (G.P) on site. Fence lines will be created for the 2012 event. These fences are 10m apart and security dogs roam freely in between the 2 fences. Should you attempt to gain entry illegally into good life and jump the first fence, you will find yourself face to face with a pack of german shepherd security dogs. Further more, everyone that enters the event will be given a wristband, if you are found inside the venue without a wristband, you will be evicted from the bowl. ?Theft is a concern at all major events, whether it be at an AFL match, Moomba, The Royal Melbourne Show, a Pink concert or even at Good Life.
