The Festival Ticket Hub

The Festival Ticket Office and exchange is located inside the Southcombe Sports Stadium, Campbell St, Port Fairy.  As always, our friendly helpers will be on hand to direct everyone to the relevant area.

To gain entry to the Festival you will need to scan your e-ticket (either a printed ticket or on your smart-phone) and exchange this for your wristband, which is a permanent four day pass, and must be worn at all times. The wristband contains a sensitive computer chip; the band must be presented at all Festival entry gates and scanned in. Please take care not to twist, scrunch or otherwise damage your band and the chip. Damaged bands that do not scan, and show signs of tampering, may not allow entry to the Festival. Please refer to the Ticketing Terms & Conditions for all ticket information.

Ticket Hub Hours of Operation:

Friday 9:00 am – 11:00 pm
Saturday 9:00 am – 11:00pm
