Date: The festival takes place on two days – Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th February, 2013. The event starts at midday on Saturday and Sunday until late.
Location: Another unique aspect of ATP’s I’ll Be Your Mirror is the location, offering both indoor and outdoor space just a stones throw from the CBD. The Westgate Entertainment Centre and Grand Star Receptions – two venues in one complex in Altona – just 13km away from the centre of Melbourne.
Tickets: Sunday Tickets are $135 (+ booking fee) for a single day pass and are on sale now from this link. Saturday Day passes and Weekend Passes are now sold out.
Transport: The Westgate Entertainment Centre and Grand Star Receptions – two venues in one complex in Altona – is just 13km away from the centre of Melbourne. As the event is due to finish late and if you are not driving to the event, we would recommend either taxi or our ATP Bus Tickets as the best way to get home once things finish.
Here is some information on possible ways to travel to the site and back…
Car/Taxi: If coming via car or taxi from the CBD and you cross the Westgate Bridge, DON’T TAKE the first exit to Altona which is Millers Rd, but the NEXT ONE, Grieve Parade which is exit W8. The venue is at the first roundabout. Take a right at the roundabout to drop off in the carpark or follow the signs to park in the Toyota carpark across the road.
SatNav input: 499 Grieve Parade, Altona North, VIC, 3025 There is limited parking available at the site.
Train: Whilst usually you would take either the Williamstown or Werribee line trains to Newport Train Station, next weekend there is a replacement bus service on this line. You can catch a train replacement bus service to Newport Station from Flinders Street, Southern Cross, North Melbourne, South Kensington, Footscray, Seddon, Yarraville, Spotswood and Williamstown. There will be a limited free shuttle bus operating from Newport Station to the venue and back during festival opening hours. Please be aware the last return train bus is midnight on both lines and then the next bus (NightRider Route 944) doesn’t leave Newport until 2.09am (then 2:39, 3:09, etc). It takes approximately 15 minutes for the shuttle to get from the venue to the train station.
Taxi: A taxi for 4 people from the CBD will cost around $35 – $40, $38 from St Kilda and around $42 from Fitzroy. Travelling back after the event taxis will cost around $55 to the CBD. Phone numbers for booking –
13 2227 (General Taxi Number) 1300 9378 8294 (Western Taxis) 13 1008 (Silver Top Taxis)
Bus: You can also take the 414 bus from Footscray to the site. Info/times at: http://ptv.vic.gov.au/route/view/1662.
ATP Bus Tickets:
As mentioned in a previous announcement, we are selling bus tickets from the Melbourne CBD to the festival and back.
Two-Way Return Bus Tickets travel from the Melbourne Museum in the CBD to the festival site in Altona for the beginning of the event, and then return to the CBD after the event finishes. They cost $28 per person for each day. The bus will depart at 11.30am sharp on both days – please arrive by 11.00am to board. If you are late, the bus will not wait for you.
If you are travelling to the event during the day using public transport, Single Journey Bus Tickets are also available to take people back to the city. They will leave the festival site after the event finishes and will return to the Melbourne Museum in the CBD. They cost $19 per person for each day.
The exact pickup/dropoff point is Nicholson Street Bus Bay, Melbourne Museum, 11 Nicholson Street, Carlton.
ATP has updated their transport information after being informed that work on the Werribee line will result in no trains travelling to Newport station, the station closed to the two-day festival.
Replacement Shuttle Bus services will be on offer but ATP have warned that these buses may not be able to be able to transport all festival-goers requiring public transport. To help remedy the situation, ATP are running an IBYM Shuttle service back and forth from North Melbourne station (where trains will be running to).
The idea is that those taking advantage of the IBYM service need only take one bus, instead of two, to reach the event. What this all means is that ATP are shelling out for extra transportation and, to help cover the resulting cost, the festival is asking for a gold coin donation for those catching the IBYM service to and from North Melbourne Station.
The following is ATP’s statement on the matter
We were recently informed that as a result of rail works on the Werribee line, no trains were running to Newport station (the closest station to the event) and that bus replacement services would be in service instead.
However, Metro have advised us that these may not be able to meet the capacity for our ATP crowd as indicated through our transport survey.
Thus, we’ve elected to now run our IBYM Shuttles to and from North Melbourne station (where trains will be running to), instead of Newport. This means that IBYM Punters will only have to take one bus – between the event and North Melbourne – instead of two! However, this has added a significant number of buses to the shuttle service: as a result, we’re asking for a gold coin donation for trips to and from North Melbourne Station.
Please note the last trains from North Melbourne into the city are at 10 past midnight Saturday and at midnight Sunday, so please bear this in mind and plan accordingly. Our headliners finish at 11:20pm and 11:30pm respectively so this should give people the chance to get on one of the buses to North Melbourne and catch their trains.
Please also note that we have asked for as many shuttles as possible, but space may still be limited and you should review other travel options as posted here.
The journey takes approximately 20 minutes.
On Saturday the first bus leaves from North Melbourne to the event at 11:30am with buses continuing to the event every 20-30 minutes throughout the day until 4:30pm. In the evening buses will be leaving the event going back to North Melbourne station at 11:00pm, 11:20pm, 11:30pm and 11:40pm with the last leaving the event at 11:50pm.
On Sunday the first bus leaves from North Melbourne to the event at 11:30am with buses continuing to the event every 20-30 minutes throughout the day until 4:30pm. In the evening buses will be leaving back to North Melbourne at 11:00pm, 11:20pm and with the last leaving the event at 11:30pm.
