2. Please be aware that Golden Plains (referred to as ‘the Festival’) is subject to a major event ticketing declaration under Part 9A of the Major Events Act 2009.

Offenders face fines of between $908 and $445,220 depending on the nature of the offence.
3. If a Holder and/or ticket is the subject of a breach of any of our terms and conditions and/or the ticket is damaged or defaced in some way and/or proof of purchase cannot be established and/or contravenes ticket resale laws, it and any other ticket from the same order will be made void and Holders will be ejected and/or refused entry and/or charged with trespass and/or charged with obtaining financial advantage by deception, or similar.

4. Complimentary tickets cannot be sold, advertised or offered for sale.
5. A recipient of a ballot code to purchase tickets cannot sell, attempt to sell or attempt to transfer a ballot code for profit or commercial advantage. If this occurs, the ballot code and any associated tickets will be voided and the individual will be excluded from future ballots. A ballot code does not guarantee the recipient an opportunity to purchase a ticket to the Festival.
6. Tickets and ballot codes cannot be used as part of any marketing, media, sales promotion or competition, whether commercial or non-commercial, without prior written permission from the Organiser.
7. The full ticket price of $488 incorporates on-site services and amenities including, but not limited to, camping and parking, comprising a value of $200.
8. A change in personal circumstances does not entitle the Holder to a refund of the price of the ticket or the return or exchange of the ticket.
9. Tickets and other expenses will not be refunded in whole or in part under any circumstances including, but not limited to, Holders being asked or forced to leave, Holders deciding not to attend any portion of the Festival, the possible non-appearance of any particular person or group expected by the Holder, whether advertised or not.

The Terms and Conditions of Entry include the following:
1. Tickets (which are sold only in the form of a wristband) must be worn around the wrist of the Holder for the duration of the Festival. Once the Holder has arrived at the Festival, the Holder’s ticket cannot then be shared or transferred to anyone else. All attendees are required to stop and show their ticket when requested to do so by authorised Festival staff. Once a ticket is removed from the wrist of the Holder it becomes void. For security purposes, tickets remain the property of the Organiser from the time of sale until the advertised gates closing time of the Festival.
2. The right of admission is reserved and subject to the discretion of the Organiser. Entry to the Venue is only permitted to Holders who agree to have their person, vehicle and belongings searched for glass, gas bottles and other banned items. Banned items are confiscated and not returned.

The Organiser reserves the right to classify an audio visual device as a professional camera and/or a device used for a professional purpose and, therefore, a banned item. The Organiser reserves the right to remove a Holder if they are in breach of the requirements regarding audiovisual equipment.

7. Before driving, Holders are invited to take a free breath test prior to exiting on the last day of the Festival. If a blood alcohol content over .00 is registered, it is important to get a second breath test from a different location.

The Organiser accepts no responsibility for breath testing or any accident, injury or damage arising from traveling to or from the Festival, or at any time while on-site.

WARNING: If the Holder participates in the Festival, the Holder’s rights to sue the supplier under the Fair Trading Act 1999 if the Holder is killed or injured because the activities were not supplied with due care and skill, or were not reasonably fit for their purpose, are excluded, restricted or modified in the way set out in or on this notice.
