Carlton's Mitch Robinson has been ordered to do community service and make a donation to charity after being involved in an incident at a music festival on Saturday.

According to Carlton, the 23-year-old Tasmanian was involved in an altercation with a friend during the Big Day Out music festival after he 'initially took steps to prevent his friend's anti-social behaviour'.

Video has emerged of the incident in which Robinson lands a punch after being hit while he was not paying attention.

"Immediately following the altercation Robinson left the festival of his own accord and contacted club officials," a statement from Carlton said.

Football operations manager Andrew McKay said there was no excuse for Robinson's behaviour.

"This type of behaviour, no matter what the circumstance, is not acceptable or in line with club policy," he said.

"Mitch is extremely remorseful and has accepted the club's sanction."

The midfielder will complete two months of community service with the Salvation Army and make a $1000 donation to the same charity.
