For shows sold through Ticketmaster, tickets can be purchased through the Melbourne Town Hall Box Office (open 10am to late every day of the Festival) and Ticketmaster outlets in advance, and at the door of most venues on the night of the show (if seats are available). Box Office queues can be long and we recommend booking in advance. To purchase tickets on the night, arrive at least 30 minutes prior to show time.

Tickets can also be purchased at the door of most venues on the night of the show.


Tickets for most shows can be collected at the show venue. When collecting tickets, please bring your ID, booking account number and the credit card you used to purchase your tickets. If you purchased your tickets online and selected the 'Print-at-Home' option you may proceed directly to the venue and present your PDF ticket to Front of House staff. No need to queue at the Box Office first!
