What is the presale password?
Presale passwords are obtained via artist or festival fan club mail outs, newsletters and/or social media pages.
How will I receive my ticket/s?
We offer several delivery methods. Available options may vary depending on the event.
There are several different delivery modes:
eTicket (QR Barcoded Electronic Tickets):
This is a PDF attachment to your order confirmation email.
SMS (QR Barcoded Electronic Tickets):
This is an SMS link sent to the number entered during the purchase process.
For both the above options, you can display the ticket QR barcode on your mobile phone / device. Just make sure you have turned up the brightness on your display.
It is fine to separate barcodes if people using the eTickets wish to arrive at different times. Please ensure that you have one barcode per person as each QR barcode is scanned as an individual ticket upon entry to the event.
Due to system process checks, tickets can take 15 - 30 minutes to send. Please always check your junk / spam folder for ticket emails too.
Localtix will post your tickets to you via Registered Australian Post. You will receive a tracking number via email, please follow this manually as you will not receive any further automated updates.
Upon delivery, a signature is required from a resident at that address to acknowledge receipt of the tickets. If no one is available to sign to receive the tickets, Australia Post will leave a card informing you that they unsuccessfully attempted to deliver to your address.
The card will instruct you to collect from your local Australia Post Office. The tickets will be addressed to the person who purchased the tickets, as such they will be required to present valid photo ID at the Post Office, along with the card advising to collect the tickets.
Registered Australia Post usually takes between 5 and 7 business days to arrive.
My Registered Post ticket/s have not arrived!
If you have not received your tickets after 10 business days please enter the Australia Post Tracking Number, provided to you via email at the time of placing your order, via the Australia Post website, or call Australia Post on 13 13 18 ext 2 to enquire as to the location of your tickets.
What should I do if I cannot open the PDF attachments or cannot print tickets?
To open the PDF attachment containing your eTicket/s you will need Adobe Acrobat Reader or other PDF viewing software installed on your device.
I can't find my tickets!
Alternatively, door staff will be able to assist you with gaining entry - simply present photo ID matching the details on the order.
Can I change the name on my ticket?
Unless specified, tickets purchased via Localtix are not name specific. The details at the top of your ticket are for billing purposes only, these cannot be changed. Simply forward the ticket on to the person attending. If you encounter any difficulties, please contact customer support, or call us on 1300 855 580.
How do I get a refund?
Once purchased, tickets are non-refundable and non-transferable except as outlined in our Terms & Conditions. Tickets must be treated like cash, if lost or stolen, we are unable to assist.
If an event is rescheduled, all ticketholders will receive an email containing the new event information as well as instructions to obtain a refund.
If an event is cancelled by the Promoter/s, Localtix will notify all ticket holders via email. All orders will be automatically refunded back to the card used during the initial purchase process.
If you have purchased third party refund protection through Booking Protect you can contact Booking Protect here .
Why is there a limit to how many tickets I can purchase?
As a conscientious ticketing agent, we take the issue of illegal ticket scalping very seriously. One of the many measures we have put in place is an 8 ticket per customer order limit. This ensures that anyone attempting to engage in illegal scalping cannot buy more than a reasonable number of tickets. This limit may be occasionally increased or decreased under instruction from the event promoter.
Can I re-sell my tickets?
If you cannot attend an event for legitimate reasons and want to sell your ticket via an online auction site, trading post or Social Media forum, Localtix will not object to your sale if the sell price is no more than the face value of the original ticket price (i.e., what you paid for the ticket).
The event promoter may however have a different policy when it comes to ticket resale and we urge you to review their terms and conditions, which may differ to the advice we give here.
We recommend reselling your tickets via the authorised and safe resale platform Tixel.
Can I buy tickets if I am based overseas?
Yes. Overseas customers are required to enter address details as best you can and include an Australian State or Territory in the relevant field to enable the order to be processed. Localtix does not post tickets to international addresses; you can only select eTicket (QR Barcoded Electronic Tickets).
I purchased a ticket off a 3rd Party; Can I check if it is valid?
Localtix does not support tickets purchased via any 3rd party. Purchasing tickets from any 3rd party is discouraged and you do so at your own risk. Localtix accepts no responsibility for issues which arise as result of ticket purchases from any 3rd parties. Localtix recommends you always purchase tickets from authorised ticket agents and not resellers. We cannot verify the authenticity of tickets purchased via any other channel other than the Localtix ticketing system. We recommend reselling your tickets via Tixel, the authorised and safe resale platform.
I have a pay overtime order but my card details have changed!
To update your card details, please contact our customer support prior to your next scheduled payment.
