Tickets to The Falls Music & Arts Festival in Lorne, Victoria sold out in just half an hour after going on sale to the general public on Wednesday morning! Tickets to Marion Bay, Tasmania and Byron Bay, New South Wales are currently selling strongly with Byron Bay expected to sell out shortly.
To make travelling to Tasmania even easier for interstate patrons, Falls has just announced an increase in the quantity of their Gimme Shelter ticket options and the availability of Tepee Life in Marion Bay. The Gimme Shelter ticket option provides patrons with the use of a tent and sleeping mat, all included in the exclusive 3day ticket price. Just arrive onsite and step straight into a fully pitched tent without the hassle of lugging it all the way from home. For friends travelling in larger groups, Tepee Life is an excellent option, they can hire the use of a lovely 2, 4 or 6 person tepee made from discarded corporate advertising banners. This can be purchased separately to ticketshere.
In 2012, 55% of the sold out crowd attending Marion Bay were from interstate locations and the festival is trying to make the journey to Falls even easier for their patrons over this busy summer holiday period.
“It was great to see so many people from all across Australia celebrating the New Year in Marion Bay last December. The ticket price is deliberately kept lower than that of its mainland counterparts in Lorne and Byron Bay to allow for patrons additional travel costs.” Paul Piticco, Festival Director.
Tasmania is the perfect place to holiday over summer with a wide range of events and activities in full swing. MONA is open, Taste of Tasmania is starting, Sydney to Hobart is racing plus a never-ending list of scenic natural wonders to be explored.
Best to book your travel early while availability is high and costs are low, check out theFalls website for all of your options.
