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.

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

"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,"
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.

"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
