Has the Multicultural Festival grown too big for Civic?

The Multicutural Festival held over the weekend can only be described as a raging success with some estimates that there were over 100,000 people in Civic on Saturday.

But has it grown too big?

The crowds were packed in pretty tight, if something had caused a panic (and with all that fire, booze, and people this is no idle speculation) the stampede could have been grisly indeed.

Should it move to EPIC? Do more roads need to be closed to allow it to spread out more?

EPIC? Just something else that convienients the Gungahlinites and no-one else!

Remember that a year or two ago it was spread to Glebe park, but not much was there and it was difficult to know that there was anything going on over there from the main part.

I think consideration needs to be given to the layout and crowd flow. It seems as though the layout is done to purposely create choke points.

I dunno about EPIC, but they really need to do something. I used to enjoy going, but I’ve steered clear the last couple of years because it’s just become too crowded. When simply moving around is a massive pain, it really detracts from the fun of it. Spread it out more, move it to a different venue, but do something.
