Pay It Forward

Can I exchange my ticket or get a refund?
The Unconformity does not offer exchanges or refunds on tickets, except when the event has been cancelled or if your attendance has been impacted by a COVID-19-related restriction. See our full Ticketing Terms & Conditions and COVID-19 Safety page for more details.

I can no longer attend due to COVID-19 restrictions or because I’m displaying similar symptoms to the symptoms of COVID-19 and need to stay home. What should I do?
Our commitment to COVID-19 safety means we’re offering additional flexibility through our refund policy.

Can I resell my tickets? Can I buy someone else's tickets?
No. The Unconformity does not have a resale facility. Tickets purchased outside of our official ticketing platform may not be legitimate, and if you purchase a ticket outside of our ticketing platform there is a risk it will not be accepted at the door.

Can I book tickets in person?
You can book tickets in person at the West Coast Wilderness Railway Station, 1 Driffield St, Queenstown. Bookings are available at the station between 9am–3pm each day. Note that only credit card payments are available.

Can I book tickets over the phone?
The ticketing phone line is not attended during the festival weekend. Our team at the Festival Information Hub can assist you in person.

My ticket says ‘no latecomers’. What does that mean?

Some events have a strict lockout policy, which means that no one will be admitted into the venue once the event has started. Lockouts are advertised on the relevant website event pages, during online ticket purchases and on your ticket. No refunds will be provided for latecomers to strict lockout events.

What does ‘no passouts’ mean?

If you leave a ticketed event that advertises ‘no passouts’, you will not be allowed to re-enter the venue, even if you have a ticket. Some events have a ‘no passouts’ policy after a certain point in the evening, so be sure to check venue signage and check in with venue staff before leaving a venue you plan to return to.

The event I want to see is sold out. Can I join a waitlist?
Yes, you can join the waitlist for any sold-out events on the Tickets page. If a ticket becomes available and you are on the waitlist, you may receive an email offering the opportunity to purchase a ticket. We encourage you to purchase waitlist tickets promptly, as the link to claim an available ticket will not last forever.

I have a baby or young child, do they need a ticket?
