  • Ticketing

  • When do tickets go on sale?
    9am local time Tuesday 30 August.
  • I need to contact someone about ticketing?
    For all questions relating to ticket purchases, delivery, payment etc. Please talk to the lovely folks at OzTix by emailing [email protected] or call them on 1300 762 545.
  • Is there a limit to how many tickets I can buy?
    Yes, only 6 tickets can be purchased per transaction.
  • Will there be a re-sale?
    There will be no re-sale facility this year. If you’re unable to attend the show and have purchased tickets, you will be able to pass or sell them to a friend at face value. Flip side, please only purchase tickets from a known and trusted friend.
  • What is the carbon offsetting option?
    This is an option to offset your travel to and from Falls. For only $3.50 you can make a huge difference, all money captured by patrons is invested into sustainability initiatives with Climate Friendly.
  • Can I buy a ticket listed online from another source?
    Do not buy tickets from an unknown source; there is no way to be sure that it is a valid ticket. We will be scanning all tickets on arrival and you will not be granted entrance if the barcode has already been scanned. If you’re buying from a trusted friend for the face value price of the ticket that is fine, there is no need to change the name on the ticket.
  • Replacing lost or compromised tickets?
    If you’ve lost the email that contains your e-ticket or if you think that it may have been copied/compromised, please contact Oztix by emailing [email protected] or calling 1300 762 545.
  • How do 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’re through to the festival, 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.

  • Where is the venue?
    The Falls Downtown site will be taking over the Kings Square and surrounding streets, St John's Anglican Church, the re-purposed old Myer Building and the Town Hall Atrium! A totally new way to experience traditional spaces.
  • How do I get there?
    To get to the venue you're best to catch public transport (bus or train) to the Fremantle Station at the end of the Perth/Freo line. From there, make the short stroll (only 400m) on foot through the markets to the festival.
  • Is there parking near the site?
    Parking around the boundaries will be super limited, here are your best options if driving.
