At Falls Festival, we're always looking for ways to ensure our processes are smooth and your experiences get better each year. We asked what you wanted in our survey earlier this year and you're helping us make some smart moves. We're starting with the first step, ticketing. Here's what you can expect to see at Falls this year. . .

The Ballot has retired.
After a long and illustrious career dishing the tix, the Falls Ballot is now entering her twilight years and has decided to hang up her boots - ready to enjoy a well deserved shandie and a rest. As the giant Falls lottery heads to Florida, Falls tickets are taking to the express lane - heading straight to General Sales!

Here are your options for getting tickets quickly . . .

Optus Perks Pre-Sale.
Optus customers who sign-up to Optus Perks will have first access to Falls 2016/17 tickets with the Optus Perks Pre-Sale, commencing at 9am AEST on August 25th and August 26th before the General Sales kick in. If you're an Optus customer get first dibs on tickets for you and your pals and secure your spot at Falls this summer by signing up to Optus Perks today!

General Sales.
Starting on Tuesday August 30, just a week after our announce! Falls General Sales will start at 9am AEST on the noodle, so make sure you're ready. You'll be able to buy up to 4 tickets in a single transaction through Oztix (so make sure you have an account set up), all of the prices and details will be available on the Falls website very soon.

Become a Friend of Falls.
Have you been to 3 or more Falls Festivals? Want some cool prizes and access to tickets? Well then, become a Friend of Falls and join our new little club, set up to reward Falls veterans. Check out the application process here before it closes on Monday August 22.

To camp or not to camp?
To give our East Coast patrons more flexible options we're separating out camping from event tickets this year for Lorne and Byron Bay (Marion Bay camping is free). If you want to camp onsite and enjoy the full immersive Falls experience (recommended!) just add a camping pass before you check-out. If you're a local and heading home to your own bed sounds more enticing, just buy an event ticket and forget the camping pass. Whatever suits you best.

Be front row for the full line-up announce on Tuesday August 23 and become a subscriber! We can't wait to share all the finer details with you all very soon.
