I have 2 five day passes to sell, and i tried to put it on the accom board, as an accom/ticket swap, but it was deleted, and then i tried to put something up in the selling tickets part, but it is locked. but various people have their posts up, so how do i do that??

maybe if there is a bluesfest admin around, and you read this, you could fire me a quick email about protocol??

cheers

Admin has never allowed tickets to be sold on the forum until all of the tickets held in stock by Bluesfest have been sold.
As for the alternatives,there are but two it is true.

Miss Bear,such bold comments could get you in trouble.
I was trying to use the subtle approach.

But in all seriousness, the terms of the tickets that I have bought, and now need to sell as I can't attend, say that the tickets are not transferable by the purchaser. So.......how does one go about transferring these supposedly non-transferable tickets? It's not that I'm trying to rip off the festival in anyway, I just want to get some cash back due to a change of circumstance.....

The sale terms seem to be different from previous years

If you have a hard ticket,you exchange it at the gate for a wristband.
The bar code on the hard ticket will be scanned.


If you have an E ticket,all you do is to enter the ticketing site on this website,and change the name of the person who will use the ticket.
They must carry appropriate ID.
The bar code on the E ticket will be scanned and a wrist band will be issued.
To protect against fraud,the bar code on an E ticket can only be scanned once.

I bought an E ticket for my usual travelling companion,but I did not realise that he had purchased his own.
I then offered it to a workmate.
He was going but at the last minute changed his mind.
So a friend of my travelling companion is now going to use it.
These things happen.

I sold my ticket on e-Bay, and it was purchased after 1 day
I did sell it at an outrageous bargain price though.
The fellow who bought it was stoked!

As far as non-transferable goes..
Last year I was talking to a man on the shuttle bus from Mullumbimby ( on the Saturday )
And he told me he had bought his ticket on e-Bay, and, he had no trouble at the gate at all.
I think? it helps if you have a hard-copy ticket, but I am not sure. Best to make contact with the Bluesfest office.
It may be totally proper..
