YOUTH POLICY 
Fremantle 

St Jerome’s Laneway Festival in Fremantle in 2020 will be a licensed 16+ event. 

So that we can provide a secure and safe environment for everyone, we are implementing our Youth Policy for 2020, which will form part of our Conditions of Entry. 

All patrons under the age of 18-years old MUST be accompanied and supervised, at all times, by a responsible adult (*see below) over the age of 25 years old.

A responsible adult may supervise a maximum of 3 juveniles at the festival.  

All Youth ticket holders will be encouraged to register their responsible adult prior to the event, to avoid delays doing it at the gates upon arrival.

If a juvenile is found to be unaccompanied or unsupervised at any point, both the juvenile and their respective responsible adult will have their tickets cancelled and will be escorted from the festival site. Any additional juveniles accompanied and supervised by the respective responsible adult will also have their tickets cancelled and will be escorted from the festival site.
