COVID Ticketing Information
It is a condition of entry to register your attendance when visiting our venues for contact tracing purposes. For quickest entry to the venue, we recommend you download the ServiceWA app via the WA State Government website before attending. Click here to download the app and read more about its usage. If required for contact tracing, we will pass your contact details on to the WA State Government.
Perth Festival will be implementing all government orders relating to COVID-19 including but not limited to the requirement to demonstrate your proof of vaccination status and the wearing of face masks.
It is a condition of entry at all Perth Festival 2022 events and venues that patrons 16 years and over must demonstrate proof of receiving a double dose COVID-19 vaccination or a medical exemption sufficient to meet WA State Government requirements. Any patron 16 years and over without valid proof of vaccination or without a valid proof of medical exemption will be denied entry.
Should a Perth Festival 2022 event or venue become impacted by a government order mandating the wearing of face masks or any other requirement mandated by the government, it is a condition of entry that you will need to wear a mask within the venue or otherwise comply with that requirement or present evidence of a medical exemption if applicable.
If you are booking tickets to an event, please consider that if it does become impacted by a government order you will need to comply with that direction for entry. Anyone who is required to comply with a government order and does not have a valid exemption will be denied entry.
For information on how you can show valid proof of your COVID-19 vaccination status or a medical exemption, visit https://www.wa.gov.au/government/covid-19-coronavirus/covid-19-coronavirus-proof-of-covid-19-vaccinations
Changes to Events
In the event of a change in WA Government health advice and subsequent change in venue capacity restrictions, we may need to cancel and refund a portion of purchased tickets. If this occurs, we will cancel the most recently purchased tickets first. Earlier purchases will take precedence. We recommend booking as early as possible to avoid disappointment.
Exchanges, Credits and Refunds
In the event that you are unable to attend your event due to any COVID-19 related reason, including but not limited to illness, insufficient proof of vaccination status, waiting on COVID-19 test results, being in contact with a person suspected of having contracted COVID-19, or receiving direction to quarantine or self-isolate, as per the LPA Ticketing Code of Practice we are not required to provide a refund or exchange of tickets, vouchers, or gift certificates. We may consider exchanges or account credits at our discretion - please contact us as soon as possible in advance of your event if you are unable to attend for any of the above reasons at [email protected].
Please check our website for live COVID-19 updates.
