Good Day Sunshine Festival features four separate areas adhering to COVID restrictions.
Good Day Sunshine Festival in Busselton (WA) is the first of its kind: a 5,000 capacity music festival adhering to coronavirus restrictions and featuring a revolving stage.
The new format was developed by Macro Music CEO Ross Macpherson.
"We have been working with the local council, police, health and various other stakeholders to ensure the format complies with the current COVID guidelines for WA. All have been incredibly supportive of our ideas," Ross says.
The aptly-named Turntable Stage will be at the centre of a field split into four sections – Cobblestones, Windmills, The Point, and Injidup – each with a max capacity of 1,250 people which decreases the risk of a virus spread. Each of the four areas will operate as an individual event featuring bars, food outlets and bathrooms.
Large LED screens will mean good views at all times from all areas of the festival. Festival-goers will be able to select which area they're most keen on hanging out in.
Not only will the event follow COVID restrictions and guidelines, but it will also generate employment opportunities for local and Perth-based businesses.
"I would be flattered if this format was to be used by other events in Australia and across the world," Ross continues. "The sooner we can get large scale live events back up and running, the better for everyone."
