Ticket Resellers Policy

To eliminate the risk of fraud, you are strongly advised to only purchase tickets from Sydney Festival, Ticketmaster or one of our partner venues, as purchasing a ticket from an unauthorised seller can result in the ticket holder being denied entry.

Many unofficial sellers will list tickets for sale, even though they do not actually have those tickets. This is called "speculative ticketing". They are speculating that they will be able to get tickets and then resell them to fans. Those speculative listings are not real tickets in hand (they do not actually have tickets to sell). Beware of these sellers.
