New system to get Falls Festivals tickets

FALLS Festival has announced changes to the way revelers can get tickets for this year's music events, and confirmed the full music line up will be unveiled on August 23.

Up until last year, the Ticket Ballot was open the first week on August for ten days.

Music lovers had to submit their name into the draw and then received an email if the were selected to purchase a ticket.

Falls Festival organisers announced today The Ballot is being retired.

"After a long and illustrious career dishing the tix, the Falls Ballot is now entering her twilight years and has decided to hang up her boots - ready to enjoy a well deserved shandy and a rest".

"As the giant Falls lottery heads to Florida, Falls tickets are taking to the express lane - heading straight to General Sales!"

General Sales

Falls Festival has announced geNEral sales will start on Tuesday, August 30, "just a week after our announce."

Falls General Sales will start at 9am AEST on that day.

Patrons will be able to buy up to four tickets in a single transaction through Oztix, so those interested should set up an account with that company in advance.

In terms of pricing, organisers only said all details "will be available on the Falls website very soon".

To camp or not to camp?

Lorne and Byron Bay will be offering the chance to camp on site for an extra fee (Marion Bay camping is free).

Those interested in camping onsite must add a camping pass before they check-out at the point of ticket sale.

"If you're a local and heading home to your own bed sounds more enticing, just buy an event ticket and forget the camping pass," organisers said.

Falls Festival already confirmed American actor, comedian, DJ and musician Childish Gambino as the first name in their line up for this year's festival.
