The new Playground Weekender2012 plans

Following the last-minute cancellation of Playground Weekender 2012, the festival has announced a few satellite shows for Sydney with some of the line-up’s stars. First, though, there’s this important thing:

Ticketholders will be able to access all of the events taking place completely free of charge AND will be able to retain their ticket to claim a refund as per the terms and conditions of purchase. Refund options are currently being explored and the process of how to claim will be confirmed next week. Alternatively, people are invited to keep hold of their tickets which will be valid for Playground Weekender 2013.

what are the chances of non PGW ticket holders getting in do we think?

grattan

grattan said on the 2nd Mar, 2012

Pretty good I'd reckon - with full refunds on offer and the novelty of the weekend away taken out of the equation there's always a chance that some PGW punters won't show up.

what is the cap of PGW anyway? they didn't sell out either right? Those Beach Road and Roundhouse lineups are bloody great.

rad

In what universe does Set Sail replacing anyone at anything count as rad? Let alone them replacing either Seekae or Lanie.




Anyway - from Playgrounder:

More news from HQ: Due to Mardi Gras there are no buses available to take you between venues but we reckon with all the road closures the train will be quicker anyway.

Good news - Manchester Orchestra and Set Sail will be performing at Beach Road tomorrow. Bad news - Lainie Lane and Seekae are no longer able to perform due to travel and logistical issues.

Arrive early at all the venues as we have limited capacity. First in, best dressed. AND don't forget your fancy dress!! xx

There will be a very limited number of tickets available on the door for $50. Priority will be given to Playground Weekender ticket holders.

There is NO guest list for these events, if you were on the guest list to Playground Weekender, this will not grant you access to these venues.

Pass outs will be allowed as your wristband will grant you access to all three venues for the weekend (if you have a three day festival ticket). However, if you leave the venue, you may need to queue to get back in. Festival ticket holders will be prioritised.
