Tickets—Purchasing, Resale, Refunds & Event Entry
While we can scan tickets on your mobile phone, paper tickets are much quicker and will reduce your time in the queues, especially if you have a cracked screen!
Beware of ticket resellers—never purchase tickets from an unauthorised retailer such as Viagogo, Facebook or Trade Me.
These platforms are known for supplying fraudulent tickets, and the promoter cannot guarantee whether a ticket purchased from a ticket reseller is genuine. Purchasers of fraudulent tickets will be required to purchase a gate sale on arrival, but only if the event has not already sold out.
If you bought multiple tickets, make sure each ticket is named, as everyone upon entering will have to present ID along-side their named ticket.
Before arriving at the event open your iTicket email, click on the link/attachment to reveal your iTicket mobile ticket in preparation for scanning. Ensure the back-light on your mobile phone is turned up to aid the speed of scanning your mobile ticket. Simply present the mobile ticket to the customer service representative at the gates for scanning.
Refunds/Exchanges: iTicket and LUSA can not issue refunds or exchanges after a ticket has been purchased. Please be sure you choose your tickets carefully.
On sale: You can sell your ticket but if your ticket double scans upon entry, that patron will be denied entry. Proceed with caution.
If you are buying a second-hand ticket, please trust that the person won't change their mind and attend under the same ticket. Double scanned tickets will not be accepted under any circumstance.
