Ticket information

Festival Pass: The Festival Pass is a limited-run of passes that allow priority entry into all ticketed events, goes toward our running costs, and also offers a significant discount over what it would cost to pay for each performance individually. Any remaining Festival Passes will be available until sold out on the day.

Individual Performances: On the day of the Festival, all outdoor performances are free, but the two indoor venues are ticketed and will be available at $10 per performance.

Payment Options: The festival passes are admnistered through EventBrite (see above), which takes payments online. We will take cash only at the doors to the venues, but have EFT/Credit facilities at the main ticketing/information booth to be located at the bar. Bars are good.
