We appreciate that people like to camp with their friends and not everyone will arrive at the same time. However, should camping space fill up, you may be directed to a different area. Please be mindful of others when securing the space you require for your campsite and be prepared for others to camp with or near you if spaces begin to fill up.

The camping area is demarcated with an internal road system. All camping must be within the designated areas and the internal road system shall not be blocked or obstructed at any time. Your vehicle may be removed at your cost if found to be causing an obstruction.

Buying Tickets2019-07-08T19:23:47+08:00

Tickets are on sale now through the website on our home page and through the tickets tab. At this point in time, we have three tiers of tickets, Super Duper Early Birds, First Release and General Release. Super Duper Early Birds and First Release tickets are limited, so it is recommended to purchase these early to save some money.

Tickets will be available at the gate unless the event reaches capacity. Please keep an eye on the Facebook event page and this FAQ page for information regarding ticket availability on the gate. Gate sales will only accept cash, so please be sure to bring enough cash with you.

When purchasing your ticket you will notice that there is no name assigned to the ticket barcode which can be downloaded from your confirmation email. This is great for buying tickets for friends or selling tickets to people you know and trust without the need for an official name change.

However, we strongly recommend that you do not buy tickets from strangers or people off the internet. There has been an increase in cases of fake tickets being sold in Western Australia for various events in recent times.
In the first instance, we recommend buying your ticket through our official ticketing website TicketTailor.

If you must buy a second-hand ticket and you are uncertain whether someone is selling a legitimate ticket, ask them to email us at enquiries@blososmfestival.com.au informing us of their intention to sell the ticket/s to you and including the following details:

  1. The email they used to buy the ticket with
  2. Their full name
  3. Your email address
  4. Your full name or the name of the people buying the tickets
  5. Your contact number

If this is done correctly we can cancel the original ticket/s and reissue new tickets to you to prevent duplicate sales. However, buyers and sellers shall also be aware of the risks of transferring tickets this way and Blossom Festival will not be responsible for any financial loss of either party.

Please be mindful that our staff are quite busy, especially in the lead up to the event and it may take quite some time to assist in a ticket transfer case. We recommend buying tickets through the official means at all times.

Never pay more than the price shown on the ticket. All our ticket prices include all fees and taxes.

Children2019-09-11T10:53:03+08:00

Blossom Festival is family-friendly, however, we advise that all children under the age of 18 are strictly supervised by their parents or guardians at all times. Parents and guardians shall consider the risks which are present at the event, mainly loud music and the onsite dam before making the decision to bring their children to the event.

Any children under caught underage drinking will be returned to their parents and the family will be asked to leave immediately.

All children over the age of 15 will require a full ticket.
