Customers can book these via See Tickets or directly through Lockerhouse. Customers will receive an e-mail booking confirmation from Lockerhouse (instead of a ticket).
PLEASE NOTE: the locker sizes are 25cm wide x 15.5cm deep x 10cm high - so they are the right size for small valuables (mobiles, wallets, cameras) and if you wish to use the 12v phone charger, you must bring your own 12v car adaptor.

Day Ticket Entry
Day ticket holders should be aware that some of the main arenas are tented and have limited capacities. Tickets holders should allow ample time to enter and find the arena their favourite acts are playing to arrive early enough to ensure the tents are not already full. Day tickets are not valid for entry before 8am or after midnight on the day stated on the ticket.
Lost or stolen Tickets
We do not offer duplicates or replacements for lost or stolen tickets under any circumstances. We do not accept printed confirmation e-mails as proof of purchase. Although customers will be asked at the entry gates to show they are in possession of a valid ticket (and the tickets checked for validity) customers should only surrender their full ticket to the staff inside the wristband exchange tents. The ticket will be exchanged for a wristband which then allows re-entry to the festival site for the weekend. There is no re-entry to the festival site or entry to the arena with a ticket.
Ticket refunds or returns
Tickets are non-transferable. We do not take returns and cannot change a ticket if a customer has booked incorrectly. No refunds other than on cancellation, substantial alteration or by special exception determined by the promoter.
In the case of cancellation, substantial alteration or by special exception refunds should be obtained from the point of purchase no later than three months from the last day of the event. A minimum of the face value of the ticket will be refunded. Refunds of booking fees per ticket are subject to the Terms and Conditions of the point of sale.
