You will require this licence if you intend to hold a large-scale event that is likely to attract more than 5000 patrons and intend to sell alcohol. All events that are likely to attract more than 5000 patrons will be taken to be a major event unless the VCGLR and local council or authority believes that the event will not have a significant impact on:
- organisation of public transport and emergency services
- the public safety and the amenity of the area where the event is held.
It is recommended that you contact VCGLR early when planning an event and before you submit your application form. VCGLR will be able to provide you with relevant information to help with your major event liquor licence.
