Looks like we will be moving interstate for a new job in the comming weeks and i doubt that i will now get the time off at easter to attend. gutted....proper gutted

Got 2 adult and one child (early bird) up on gumtree but thought i may see if any forum members may be interested

All offers considered

Also, regards selling on tickets.....whats the best way, is it just a matter of changing names on the e ticket.....seems like a lot of trust is envolved this way, or can the e ticket be exchanged for a physical ticket?

hopefully the move is only for a year and we will be back in 2014....

While most other festivals now offer an official method for selling your ticket, BF seem to be ignoring such things. There is a section of this forum dedicated to selling tickets, but they have chosen to limit access to it until ALL tickets have been sold out. This means that until every last single-day ticket has been sold, nobody can use the forum to make available a 3 or 5 day ticket which they are unable to use.

After using the Soundwave ticket exchange (to purchase a ticket) a few years ago, I find it strange that BF do not offer a similar service. It protects both the seller and the buyer from being ripped off. It goes a long way towards stopping scalping. And it even offers an additional revenue stream for BF by allowing them to charge multiple booking / p&h fees on a single ticket.

New posters may not be aware of the rules in regard to selling tickets,but older members are very much aware,and it is spelt out on the face of the forum.

If soundwave has sold out its tickets and wishes to try to minimise scalping by encouraging clientele to use a facility via them,that is to be applauded as excellent policy.

However,this is statistically a very rare policy in the commercial world of event ticketing.

Airfares are a major component of travel to events,and airlines offer no remedies in such a situation.

"An artist never really chooses when and where they will play.It is for promoters to make offers.It comes down as to whether tours are financially viable." Quote John Mayall.
