Author: News
Friday, 12 October 2007
Following steam roller ticket sales in both SYDNEY and the GOLD COAST, we are very proud to announce 43,000 tickets to the MELBOURNE BIG DAY OUT event to be held MONDAY JANUARY 28TH JANUARY 2008 at FLEMINGTON RACECOURSE have SOLD OUT in record time.

In a first for the Melbourne show, we have withheld the final 2, 000 tickets to make them available for purchase through an online ticket ballot via the Big Day Out website,

Here's the important stuff

Each week 200 tickets for the 2008 Melbourne BDO will be made available on our website via an online randomly drawn ballot.

The ballot will be drawn at 9pm EST Thursday each week, beginning Thursday 25th October and finishing Thursday 27th December.

The weekly ballot ticket limit is 4 tickets per person.

As the Melbourne Big Day Out has a strict limit of 4 tickets per person, if you have previously bought Big Day Out tickets to the Melbourne event and if upon entering into the ballot you surpass the
4 ticket limit, no tickets will be allocated to you. This will be strictly adhered to.

Registering for the ballot

Registrations will open at 9am EST Thursday 18th October.

You will need to complete and submit the ballot registration page on this website.

Your registration will only need to be completed once and will last for the duration of the balloting weeks.

If you are successful in the ballot

An email will be sent to you within 30 minutes of the ballot draw.
This will provide details of how to complete the order, ie, pay for your tickets.

You will be given 5 days to pay for your ticket order (until 9pm EST Tuesday following the ballot). If in this time you have not paid for your order, these tickets will be forfeited and put back into the next week's ballot.

Selling tickets for higher than the face value is a breach of the conditions of sale. In an effort to ensure that our tickets are available to genuine punters at the price we have set, every customer will need to read and agree to our Conditions of Sale and Admission before they can purchase tickets. These can be viewed on our website now. Tickets sold on auction sites will be declared invalid and the ticket holder will be refused entry. You have been warned.

Good luck.
