Please try and book tickets in advance, even for free events.

Tickets for each event can be individually booked by clicking on the TryBooking link. If you plan to attend more than one event on the Saturday or Sunday of the Main Festival Weekend (Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 November), then we recommend a Full-Day Festival Pass.

The Saturday Pass is $25  Book here

The Sunday Pass is $20 Book here

The Two-Day Pass is $40 Book here

The festival pass is the easiest and most economical way to attend festival events. You can simply pick up your pass (a stylish wristband sure to make you the envy of any fashionable booklover) at the first event you attend.

*Please note that the Saturday 25 November Wollongong Comedy event is not included in either the Saturday or the Two-Day Pass
