If you purchased a hard ticket – you don’t need to worry about ID as the ticket doesn’t have your name on it.

You will have to have photo ID with your name and date of birth.


If you purchased your ticket at an independent retain outlet, it cannot be replaced; you will need to purchase a new ticket from the event box office (unless the event is sold out).

Name changes on your ticket


If you purchased your ticket via Moshtix you need to change the ticket into your friend’s name. It costs $6.00 and the person who originally purchased the ticket must log in to their Moshtix account used for the booking.

Or call customer service on 1300 438 849.
