PURCHASE OF TICKETS
Tickets to each Event are available through authorised ticketing agents (Mushroom Ticketing Agents). Mushroom cannot guarantee any ticket purchase made through any means other than Mushroom Ticketing Agents (for example via resale sites such as Viagogo, TicketFinders or Ticketmaster Resale).
USE OF TICKETS
The promotion, advertising, offering, or selling of tickets to an Event is strictly prohibited by anyone other than a Mushroom Ticketing Agent, unless:
- with Mushroom’s prior written consent; or
- where expressly permitted under relevant State or Federal trading laws.
Tickets may not, without the prior written consent of Mushroom, be used for advertising, promotion or for any other commercial purposes (including competitions and trade promotions) or to enhance the demand for other goods or services.
EVENT SPECIFIC TERMS
Mushroom has the right to include additional specific conditions in relation to particular Events (Event Specific Terms). Such Event Specific Terms will be made available on Mushroom’s website and/or on Mushroom Ticketing Agent’s website and will be deemed to be incorporated into these Terms and Conditions. In the event there is any inconsistency between these Terms and Conditions and the Event Specific Terms, the Event Specific Terms will prevail.
CHANGE IN EVENT
Mushroom has the right to add, withdraw, reschedule or substitute support artists and/or vary advertised programs, times, prices, venues, seating arrangements, staging and audience capacity without notice to You. If an Event is a festival featuring multiple artists the line-up will be subject to change.
If an Event is rescheduled for any reason whatsoever, Your ticket will be valid (or if applicable, Your ticket will be reissued) for the rescheduled Event. You are entitled to a full refund of the ticket price if You cannot attend the rescheduled Event, provided that You apply for a refund within the period of time advertised or notified by Mushroom and/or the relevant Mushroom Ticketing Agent.
CANCELLATION OF EVENTS
If the Event is cancelled for any reason whatsoever, You will be entitled to a full refund of the ticket price. To avoid doubt, Mushroom is not liable to You for any losses or expenses incurred in connection with an Event being cancelled, postponed or changed (including, for example, travel, accommodation or other ancillary expenses), except to the extent that such losses arise from Mushroom’s breach of an applicable Consumer Guarantee (set out in the Australian Consumer Law).
REFUND OR EXCHANGE OF TICKETS
Refunds or exchanges on any ticket will only be given as set out in these Terms and Conditions, or as reasonably determined by Mushroom in order to comply with the Live Performance Australia Code of Practice for Event Ticketing in Australia or the Australian Consumer Law (or any other applicable laws). Mushroom and/or Mushroom Ticketing Agents will not issue replacement tickets where seating is not allocated (general admission tickets). Mushroom Ticketing Agents may charge a fee for the replacement of tickets.

All patrons irrespective of age must purchase a ticket to enter the Event. Mushroom reserves the right to impose age restrictions on certain events based on venue requirements and safety considerations.
