  • Do I need to create an account to purchase tickets?
    To purchase tickets, you can create/sign in using a Ticketmaster account. It's a super quick process so you'll be fine! Alternatively, if you already have a Ticketmaster account, we suggest getting the basics covered before tickets go on sale by logging in and checking your Ticketmaster account ahead of time. Remember to triple check your passwords, delivery address and billing information now, so you’re not facing any last-minute account updates when trying to process your order. Head to Ticketmaster.com.au now and log in to your account to get started.

  • Will I need a Vehicle Pass?
    Only Lorne or Byron Bay ticket holders will need a Vehicle Pass if they intend to drive to the show. Details on Vehicle Passes and on sale dates will be released later in the year.
  • What happens if I have a different ticket type to my friends?
    You have to arrive together to camp together and you can only enter the festival on the day that your ticket is valid. You must also camp at your allocated location, although you can still visit your friend’s site. No space reservations are allowed. Make sure you set a meeting time and place in advance to catchup.
  • How do the wristbands work at the event?
    Once your ticket is scanned at the gates you must hold on to it for additional scanning at the wristbanding stations. Once you’ve setup your campsite head to the wristbanding areas with your ID and ticket, here you will exchange this for a wristband that you must wear for the duration of the festival. There are no replacements for lost wristbands; the only way they can be removed is with scissors. Wristbands will not be replaced and cannot be transferred to friends.
  • Do I need a special code for the Visa Checkout Pre-Sale? Am I guaranteed tickets?
    You don't need a code for the Visa Checkout Pre-Sale, all you need is a Visa Checkout Account. Tickets are NOT guaranteed, some ticket types may sell out faster than others – so get in quick to avoid disappointment.
  • Can I purchase different ticket types in one single transaction?
    No sorry - you can only purchase up to 6 of the same Festival Ticket type per transaction (for Lorne and Byron you can also add up to 6 Camping Tickets). If you need to purchase two different Festival Ticket types, you will need to do so in separate transactions.
  • Are there passouts?
    You may enter and exit the festival by shuttle bus as you like during gate hours, however you must keep your wristband on at all times to gain entrance back onto the site. Please note that you may only come and go by shuttle bus – all cars parked onsite must stay in place until the end of the festival.
