Either memorise this map below or grab the Download app on your phone so you can get around Flemington Racecourse with no issues.



Getting to the racecourse is simple enough – there are trains to Flemington from Southern Cross Station every 10 minutes from 11:29am till 4:30pm. You can also hop on the number 57 tram from the corner of Elizabeth Street and Flinders Street all the way to the venue. For drivers, there’ll be limited parking on Leonard Cresent, costing $20 per vehicle. 


Korn, The Story So Far, Northlane and more will stop by the artist signing tent from 1pm till 9pm this weekend, check out the signing timetable below so you can get in quick. 



Catch Aussie locals Make Them Suffer and High Tension share the stage with Prophets of Rage, Limp Bizkit, Mastodon, Good Charlotte, Suicidal Tendencies and a whole other host of international acts in one of Australia’s most highly anticipated festivals for the year.
