FAQ'S

DO I NEED TO PURCHASE A TICKET FOR MY BABY or CHILD?
All patrons, including minors & babies, must have a valid ticket for entry. All minors under 18 years of age who have purchased a ticket will only be permitted into the concert site if they are accompanied by their parent/legal guardian. If a minor is NOT ACCOMPANIED by their parent/legal guardian, they will be refused entry to the concert and they will not receive a refund on their ticket.

MY GENERAL ADMISSION TICKETS SAY "GENADM" BUT HAVE ROW & SEAT NUMBERS ON THEM - WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?
This is for ticket tracking purposes only. This information does not mean you have a reserved seat for the event. Please refer to SEATING under the TICKET PRICES tab.

​General Admission Grass ticket holders will need to bring a picnic blanket or rug with them to sit on (should you wish) or alternatively a low-to-the-ground beach style chair or director/camping chair. Please note that beach chairs (being low-to-the-ground) will be positioned in the first half of the General Admission Grass area and director/camping chairs (being higher off the ground) will be positioned toward the rear of the General Admission Grass area.

I LOST SOME BELONGINGS AT A SHOW - WHAT DO I DO?
Please contact the Mellen Events office on (08) 9383 3534 or info@mellenevents.com in the days immediately after the show. If you cloaked items at the free cloakroom (or had a confiscated item cloaked), please let us know your Cloaking Ticket Number to better help us locate your item.

I PURCHASED A DRINK (ALCOHOLIC) AT THE VENUE & HAVEN'T FINISHED IT BY THE END OF THE SHOW. CAN I WALK OUT THE VENUE WITH IT?
No, the event area is a licensed venue and as such, no alcohol can be taken off the premises (just as you can't purchase a drink at a pub and walk out with it - it must be consumed within the licensed area). Please assist security by leaving any unfinished alcoholic beverages behind
