Festival Events

Standard Festival Event Participation Fees

With a change of ticketing provider, we also looked at the commission structure that had been in place for a decade! When these were initiated it was based on a shared risk model. However with the increase in interest and event numbers, we are moving to a risk and reward model. There will be a set fee to participate in the Festival based on the total capacity of your event. This is the same pricing model as Melbourne Food & Wine and Good Beer Week.

These fees are based on the average commission from previous years, and takes into consideration the total ticket capacities and pricing. This will reward those events that do well by not taking a higher commission for greater ticket sales.
