We collect your Personal Information for the primary purpose of providing our services to you, providing information to our clients and marketing. We may also use your Personal Information for secondary purposes closely related to the primary purpose, in circumstances where you would reasonably expect such use or disclosure. You may unsubscribe from our mailing/marketing lists at any time by contacting us in writing.

When we collect Personal Information we will, where appropriate and where possible, explain to you why we are collecting the information and how we plan to use it.

•           With your consent; or where required or authorised by law.

Third Parties

In such a case we will take reasonable steps to ensure that you are made aware of the information provided to us by the third party.

Disclosure of Personal Information

Your Personal Information may be disclosed in a number of circumstances including the following:

•           Third parties where you consent to the use or disclosure; and

Security of Personal Information

Your Personal Information is stored in a manner that reasonably protects it from misuse and loss and from unauthorized access, modification or disclosure.

When your Personal Information is no longer needed for the purpose for which it was obtained, we will take reasonable steps to destroy or permanently de-identify your Personal Information.

REFUNDS: If you cannot attend a concert you must advise us at least 48 hours before the scheduled start time of the event.  A refund equal to the value of tickets cancelled will be paid to you. We will not provide a refund or replacement if you change your mind. Donations online are non-refundable. In the event of a disputed transaction, or an error in the amount of the transaction contact our team and we will assist in resolving the issue. The currency of all transactions will be made only in Australian dollars. Export or legal restrictions are not applicable.

CANCELLATIONS: Should the Port Fairy Spring Music Festival be required to cancel an event all patrons will receive a full refund. If a patron is displaying Covid 19 symptoms or must isolate during the festival period, a refund will be given to the patron corresponding to the time not spent at the event. We encourage anybody displaying covid-19 symptoms to contact us and not to attend the festival.

A single Friends membership entitles you to one priority ticket per concert and a couple’s Friends membership to two tickets. Please note that you must pay the membership subscription as a separate transaction before you can buy priority tickets. You may make group bookings during the priority period provided all members of your group are eligible Friends of the Festival. 

We do not add a booking fee to ticket orders. There is also no charge for processing your credit card payment. 

Some concerts book out early, especially in smaller venues. If a concert is sold out ahead of your order, your name can be added to a waiting list and we will endeavour to contact you if tickets become available before the event.  

You will receive your tickets by email unless you specifically ask for printed tickets. We will mail these to you if we receive your order before Tuesday 3 October or else hold them for collection at the Festival Box Office on James St (see map). Please contact us if you require your tickets to be posted. 

Concession prices are available to persons under 21 years of age who are full time students and to holders of government pension cards such as Aged, Disability, Carer, Newstart, TPI and Supporting Parent. Seniors cards, Health Care cards or Veterans gold or white treatment cards do not qualify for concession tickets.
