Like many events, NSLF is moving with the times and adjusting to the current circumstances.

In 2021, we’ll be presenting a mixed format of online and in-person events to help reduce the need for large crowd gatherings and close encounters.

NSLF has continued the suspension of its regular Festival Big Weekend to help manage COVID risks while also embracing an inspiring and stimulating spread of events across the month of February.


> Pre-register event tickets (to secure your place)

> Stay at home if they are feeling unwell, and get tested.

> Alert NSLF crew if they are feeling unwell while at an event

> Register at a venue by scanning the QR code at the entrance as soon as you arrive. Download the Victorian Government’s QR Code Service for your event.  This app will assist attendees to check-in to Festival events.  These records will help contact tracers to make contact in the event a positive case of coronavirus (COVID-19) is identified.

> Maintain 1.5 metres between audiences members at all times

> Wear a mask when attending events

> Arrive early before events begin to secure allocated seat

> Follow the directional signage

> Stay in allocated seats or space where practical

> Leave the venue as soon as the event finishes

> Practice hand hygiene: wash your hands regularly and use hand sanitiser
