Frequently Asked Questions

Here are the answers to the questions you may be asking yourself


Discounted tickets and merchandise bundles are now on sale until 31 December 2023. Full price will be applicable from 1 January 2024.

FREE tickets are issued to volunteers who help organise and run the festival, 2 x 4 hours shifts are required for a free ticket and a free festival shirt. Companion cards are accepted for FREE tickets also

Given the high increase in costs to organise such an event, and the demand for live music in Central Queensland, the festival committee decided to minimise the work load on our entire team and not issue any day tickets for 2023 and this will be the case again in 2024. You can decide which favourite artists that you would like to see across the 3 days and 2 sizzling summer stages!

We are focused on providing the best possible event for all attending!

The Gladstone Council SES Grounds where the festival takes place is a large, flat yet sandy field, which with high traffic can become uneven at times. There are two larger toilets with handrails. The local taxis have wheelchair access but unfortunately the $2 transfer buses do not. We do accept companion cards.

Due to limited service, only Telstra works well in our region, however Optus and sometimes Vodaphone receive service but it is very limited. We advise downloading your tickets to your phone as an image to allow a smooth entry!

Friday 16 February 2024 4pm to 11pm

Saturday 17 February 2024 9am to 11pm

Sunday 18 February 2024 9am to 4pm
