QA reserves the right to update or modify these Terms and Conditions from time to time. Such variations will take immediate effect following their publication on the Event website and will apply to any purchases made after that date.

To attend the Event, you must first purchase tickets from QA (or its authorised agent) on the Event website, and through our ticketing partner EMedia Campaigns Pty Ltd (“EMedia”), or in any other manner provided for by these Terms and Conditions (including any variations thereof).

You acknowledge and agree that all ticketing orders are subject to applicable law and availability. QA reserves the right to vary the number of tickets available for purchase at any time, in its absolute discretion or as required by applicable law.
QA warrants that the proceeds from the Event’s tickets sales will be held in a separate ticketing account. If QA is required to refund a ticket, it will do so directly from this ticketing account.
You acknowledge and agree that once your order is confirmed, your ticket and any transaction fees will not be refunded or exchanged, except as provided for in these Terms and Conditions, or as required by applicable law.
Before purchasing tickets to the Event, you will be required to establish a user account on the Event website.

Ticket Prices and Payment

QA reserves the right to vary its ticketing prices in its absolute discretion and otherwise, without notice.
Before purchasing a ticket to the Event, you acknowledge and agree that a transaction or booking fee may be applied to your purchase order and that you will be notified of the applicable fee prior to purchase. If QA agrees to exchange your ticket, an exchange fee may apply.
By confirming your order, you warrant to QA and EMedia that you have the express authority or permission from the card owner or other payment facility used to purchase the ticket. If QA reasonably and lawfully suspects that a ticket has been purchased with a stolen card; or has been sold in breach of these Terms and Conditions or has been otherwise purchased or acquired fraudulently, QA may cancel the ticket without refund.
If, for whatever reason, you purchase a ticket for an amount which QA determines to be incorrect, QA may cancel and refund to you the purchase price of your ticket and may offer you a replacement ticket at the correct price.

Your tickets will be ready for delivery to your nominated email address (e-ticket). upon QA receiving payment of the purchase price in full.

Where tickets are lost, stolen, misplaced or destroyed, QA reserves the right to charge an administration fee to issue a replacement ticket and will require proof of identity and purchase, prior to issuing a replacement ticket.
QA reserves the right to refuse issuing a replacement ticket if the ticket is designated for general admission as opposed to allocated seating or where QA deems (in its reasonable opinion) that your request for a replacement ticket has not been received within a reasonable period of time prior to the Event.
Event Ticketing Refunds and Exchanges
QA acknowledges the impact and uncertainty which the recent COVID-19 pandemic has created within the entertainment industry and its stakeholders in general. With that in mind, QA may be required to take actions in relation to the timing and format of the Event in order to comply with the applicable laws of various countries who are struggling with pandemic (which may change from time to time) and which may impact QA’s ability to deliver the Event in the precise manner specified on the Event’s website (as varied from time to time).
While QA endeavours to deliver the Event in the manner advertised (from time to time), by purchasing a ticket, you acknowledge and agree that QA reserves the right to add, withdraw or substitute artists or vary its advertised programs, performance times, venue, seating arrangements or audience capacity at its discretion but otherwise subject to applicable law.
You acknowledge and agree that your tickets will not necessarily be refunded as a result of these changes, except as required by applicable law (which includes, any rights pursuant to Schedule 2 of the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth)); and that any refund is otherwise made at the discretion of QA.
Notwithstanding this, if the Event is cancelled, QA will offer you (and other ticketholders) a full refund. If, however, the Event is rescheduled to another date, QA is not automatically obligated to provide such refund and instead, reserves its right to re-issue your ticket for a future date and otherwise manage your and other ticketholders’ requests for refunds at its discretion (subject to applicable law).
If the Event, is postponed, cancelled or relocated to another venue, QA will use its reasonable endeavour to notify you of such change based on the information which you have provided to us at the point of sale (so please ensure all of this information is accurate and that we are kept up to date of any changes).
You may be entitled under applicable law to a refund or exchange where the Event is materially varied in the manner contemplated by this provision. If, however, the Event is relocated to another venue, neither QA nor EMedia will reimburse you for any ancillary expenses (such as the cost of travel, car-parking, child-care and accommodation) or other consequential loss suffered by you in connection with your attendance or non-attendance at the Event. With that in mind, QA strongly recommends that you obtain ticket and/or travel insurance cover against loss for such expenses.
If you or a member of your booking party is diagnosed with COVID-19 or has been in close contact with anyone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19, QA will offer a full refund to the parties concerned, provided that one or more of such parties were not diagnosed prior to booking, and provided that you and your booking party have complied with any COVID-19 safe directions and otherwise the balance of these Terms and Conditions.
QA is not liable to exchange or refund to you any amount beyond the purchase price of the ticket inclusive of any booking fee.
QA may cancel any ticket which it reasonably believes has been purchased or sold in contravention to these Terms and Conditions. In such circumstances, QA will not be required to refund the ticket price to the bearer, but may do so if, following its investigations into the matter, it forms the view that it would be appropriate to do so.
You acknowledge and agree that any tickets to the Event must not be resold or offered for resale at a price higher than that which is stated on the ticket, without QA’s prior written consent. If you have any questions concerning this provision or would like to enquire about obtaining such consent, please do not hesitate to contact our management team.
QA reserves the right to seize or cancel a ticket from the bearer without refund or exchange and deny the bearer access to the Event, if a ticket is sold or used in contravention of this provision.
