This year we are going plastic free, teaming up with Globelet to provide you with collectable, (yes these could end up being worth millions on the 2030 version of eBay that we haven’t imagined yet) re-usable cups for all your beverage consumption needs. Help us, help you, help the environment, by getting rid of single use plastic for good! #partywithapurpose
Unlike JT, we don’t need to bring sexy back, (we take it everywhere we go), so instead, we are bringing cash free payment system back, all you have to do is grab your FREE wristband, visit the top up kiosk and load it up! You can use your wristbands for all purchases. Ready to call it a day, stop by the kiosk at any time to refund any outstanding cash before you leave.
In unfortunate news, D.D Dumbo will not be appearing at Yours & Owls Festival due to personal reasons. Stepping in to fill the Sunday 4.30pm-5.15pm slot, will be the incredibly talented, Sarah Blasko.
The good people behind Y & O’s know how to chuck a party, so to save you from any “huh?” moments we got you covered with some answers for all your FAQ’s….
