There is an air of magic in Lucindale, with the whole town pitching in to put the final touches on 'One Night Stand' preparations.

Trees are adorned with knitted pom-poms and led lights, street art has filled the town with colourful pieces of art, signage and even a few hidden gems.

Lucindale Community Economic Development Board (LINC) chair Geoff Robinson said the level of support from the community has been "absolutely unbelievable".

"Everyone's helping, whether they're elderly people who have been making pom-poms for the last two weeks," he said.

LINC's efforts to decorate the town in anticipation of the arrival of around 25,000 people have transformed much of the town.

With support from Lucindale Area School and South East Ice Suppliers, LINC have been able to set up a pop-up grocery store in the Senior Citizens Hall, tasked with the challenge of trying to feed the massive influx of visitors.

LINC chair Mr Robinson commended the community's spirit, estimating that 90 per cent of the Lucindale residents had put their hands up to help out.

"Lucindale: they roll their sleeves up and get into it. We don't talk about it - we do it - and we've proven that again," Mr Robinson said.

The Lucindale Lions and their huge team of volunteers will be managing Yakka Park, which will house close to 5000 people.

"The Lions Club; without their commitment this wouldn't be going on," Mr Robinson said.

"They're made a huge commitment to getting the show here...You've got to take your hat off to them, they know what they're doing."

Telstra is installing a temporary mobile base station in Lucindale to help existing infrastructure carry an expected massive increase in mobile calls and data usage from the 'One Night Stand' event.

Police are urging anyone intending to travel to Lucindale for the 'One Night Stand' concert event to plan ahead.

Limestone Coast Superintendent Phil Hoff said police would also be proactive in preventing anti-social behaviour, both at the all-ages, alcohol-free event, and in the surrounding area.
