Revised booking process for 2017 (PRE-SALE for 2016 attendees only)
Our goal is to minimize time spent trying to get through to us on the telephone, while maintaining a fair and equitable approach to seating allocation, and managing the complexity of special requests and audience needs.
We trialed Online Booking via in 2016 for the Opening Weekend with encouraging results, but we also hit some issues, and are not ready to implement it for Main Festival yet.
The plan for 2017 is to collect the information we require for booking from you in advance using the enclosed Attendee Information Form. We will still allocate seating on a “1st in 1st Served” basis via Seating Block selection in a phone call, but with this new approach, each call should last 1 or 2 minutes rather than the 10 minutes+ of the previous system.
This will dramatically reduce the queues on the phone, while allowing us to capture all the information required and still ensure an equitable result.
Full Festival Ticket: $1375
Complete the Attendee Information Form and return to us by February 8th (email, fax, SMS or post). We confirm receipt via email / SMS. Dial in from 9am AEST on February 13th to secure your seating block and confirm your booking.
Date tickets go on sale: February 13th 2017
Mid-Week / Finale Weekend Ticket: $775 / $825
Call-in to book (only a small number of tickets, no form required)
Date tickets go on sale: February 20th 2017
Opening Weekend Ticket: $350 Online via Try Booking (as last year) or via telephone if you prefer.
Date tickets go on sale: February 27th 2017
No payment will be taken, and the booking will not be considered “made” until we have spoken to you on the 13th February. You can send in the Attendee Information Form whenever you are ready, but please try to ensure it reaches us by February 8th to give us time to file it and confirm receipt. (If a few of you are unable to return the form in time don’t worry – we can still take a few bookings the old fashioned way on the day.)
Please note the seating plan (Click here) has changed to allow better flow and comfort in and around the hall, so don’t automatically request last year’s block number!
If you are not able to attend the Full Festival in 2017, you can still experience the joys of Huntington either for the first or second half (Mid-Week or Finale Weekend respectively), or as a taster with the Opening Weekend.
Call us on the 20th to access the remaining Mid-Week / Finale Weekend Tickets, or go online from the 27th for the Opening Weekend.
