RULES at a South Australian council-run RV park are to be relaxed for a one night musical event.

Kingston District Council expects more than 20,000 revellers, many in caravans and other RVs, to descend on the tiny town of Lucindale for the Triple J One Night Stand music festival on September 14.

And with accommodation venues almost booked out, the council has extended its RV Park in nearby Kingston to help cope with the influx of visitors.

Triple J said Lucindale would be one of the smallest towns ever to stage one of the festivals and it would be the first time in eight years the concert series has been back to South Australia last time was Tumby Bay in 2011.

Artistes will include Hilltop Hoods, Meg Mac, Ocean Alley and G Flip.

Mayor Kay Rasheed said the festival was an opportunity to bring "vibrancy" to the town during a traditionally quiet time of the year.

She has encouraged local businesses to consider extending their weekend trading hours to cater for the anticipated arrival of extra visitors to the town.

"We will also be engaging with our service groups and local clubs to consider getting involved with catering at either our RV or caravan park," she said.

The rules have also been relaxed for the weekend to include tent and non-self-contained vehicle/van camping to appeal to the younger generation attending the event.

The council said that the cost of $10 a car for the two nights represented "an irresistible budget accommodation option for the discerning traveller".

"As well as looking for places to stay, visitors will be looking for places to eat and things to see and do in the lead up to and following the concert," it said.

It was hoped that by offering additional budget-friendly accommodation in Kingston, many local traders would benefit from the financial windfall on offer.
