FRINGE WORLD Friends get access to buy Festival tickets ahead of everyone else.
Friends Early Release starts 20 October and General Public get access to tickets from 27 October.
How does it work?
Our artists opt in to allow their tickets to go on sale before the program launches. This gives them the option to get a head start and sell more tickets earlier whilst still allowing more flexibility for events that may not be ready. These events get to put their shows on sale to the public from 27 October but Friends get first dibs with access to tickets a week early!
What's the point?
Friends get access to tickets a week earlier than everyone else so that they can secure their tickets to shows that might sell out and grab tickets to their prefered date and time - plus first dibs on any deluxe tickets that usually sell super fast!
1. Friends get one extra week to get tickets to a range of shows
2. Shows sell out fast! Especially weekends and deluxe seating.
3. The artists decide when their show goes on sale
How would COVID restrictions affect this benefit?
In the case of a COVID cancellation, any tickets purchased will be refunded. In the case of a restricted capactiy, Early Release tickets will still be available and valid throughout the season. Due to border restrictions, please understand that many interstate or international shows may not have the flexibility to opt in to Ealry Release, because of these changes we have introduced our Sneak Peaks as part of our Friends Enews.
