2018 ticketing Terms & Conditions
Please read the following information on conditions of sale and attendance carefully
Ticket Exchange / Wristband Collection
Upon arrival at the Riverboats Music Festival, patrons must present either a printed TryBooking ticket for scanning OR have a mobile device ready and available with a digital copy of their ticket visible on the screen. Festival staff will then scan the ticket's QR code and issue an applicable wristband.
A valid wristband must be worn at all times to gain access to the Riverboats Music Festival Hub - no wristband, no entry.
In the event that patrons have misplaced their TryBooking ticket, patrons will be required to present a valid form of ID or credit card at the Festival Box Office. Provided this identification matches the original booking, entry wristbands will then be issued.
Festival Box Office Opening Hours:
- Friday, February 16, 2018 – 12.30pm – 10.00pm
- Saturday, February 17, 2018 – 10.30am – 10.00pm
- Sunday , February 18, 2018 – 9.30am – 5.00pm
PADDLESTEAMER SIDESHOW TICKETS
- Tickets to all four Paddlesteamer Sideshows must be purchased in conjunction with either a weekend or single day Riverboats Music Festival ticket - they cannot be purchased separately.
- For purchasers of Riverboats Paddlesteamer Sideshow tickets, please pay particular attention to the departure times, as no refunds will be issued if you are late.
In the event that a patron is unable to attend Riverboats, no refunds will be issued. Patrons are however permitted to resell their tickets for the original purchase price.
Tickets cannot be on-sold by any means at a price greater than the purchase price of the ticket. Scalped tickets may be cancelled, and the ticket holder may not be permitted entry.
Organisers encourage patrons wishing to resell tickets to do so via the festival's official Facebook page, www.facebook.com/riverboatsmusic, and specifically via the 'Events' section of the page. Organisers will not be held responsible for any transactions or ticket exchanges coordinated privately between patrons. It is the responsibility of the individual buyer and seller to ensure the transaction is completed in a satisfactory manner.
Festival organisers reserve the right to refuse entry to any person who:
• Cannot produce a valid ticket
• Presents a ticket that has been purchased or obtained through an unauthorised source or by illegal means
