FAQS - TICKET PRICES AND BOOKING FEES

Have the ticket prices gone up in 2018? Yes. For the event to be able to expand in its second year and allow more people to attend this means increased costs in security staff, toilet facilities, lighting, tables, chairs and more.

Is there limited tickets again this year? Yes. There are 2000 tickets available for public sale. There is no limit on the different ticket types, once 2000 are sold that will be it. 

Can you buy tickets on the day at the gate? At this stage, no. If the event is a sell out again in 2018 we will look at options with our security team to possibly be able to manage crowd numbers on the day. 

Why does ticketbooth charge a booking fee? Click here

Why is there a payment processing fee? This fee is $1.20 per total order cost and covers part of the bank costs in processing payments for the Riverina Winemakers Association

Can you explain why there is three ticket types? The Festival ticket is for 18+ attendees who would like to consume alcohol at the event and they are supplied a wristband, glass and lanyard on arrival, this costs $20. We have an Entry Only ticket for those who do not wish to drink but would still like to attend and enjoy the music, food and overall atmosphere with their family, this costs $10. Under 18s tickets have been made available so those who want to have a family day out with their kids being able to attend and not worry about finding babysitters, this costs $5. It should also be noted that under 18s will not be allowed in without a parent or guardian. Under 18s will not be allowed through with older friends or even their siblings.
