Dear Esotericans… Our crew from all corners of Australia continue to work hard planning, building and preparing what is shaping up to be our most anticipated gathering since our inception 5 years ago. We are super excited to show you the experience of a lifetime!
Our conditions for Esoteric to go ahead remain the same, the event must be safe, 100% free roaming and at full capacity for us to deliver the full experience that you all know and love. We were all set to go only a couple of months ago, with minimal COVID in Australia and all restrictions for our event eased for us to go ahead as planned. Two months later that has all changed and everything has changed, and all of which are now looking out of reach in 2021.
We are absolutely heartbroken to announce that we are going to need to wait a little longer to dance with our esoteric family. Due to advice from the Department of Health and our realistic expectations of the event, coupled with the current outbreak occurring all around Australia, Esoteric must be postponed forward to the Labour Day Long Weekend on Friday 11th – Tuesday 15th March 2022.
Moving forward, all tickets will be valid for the postponed date. For those who cannot make the postponed date, a refund window will commence from 6pm Wednesday 29th September 2021 until 6pm Wednesday 13th October 2021. This time round, all original ticket purchasers will be able to self-refund their tickets through our ticketing provider, Triniq. More details will be available prior to the refund window and communicated to all current ticket holders via email. Full refund details & instructions can be found here.
For those who missed out, we will be reissuing any refunded tickets via the Ballot System. You do not need to re-join the ballot if you have already previously applied.
Early access passes will still be valid for the limited people who want to come on the Thursday and beat the rush and enjoy an extra day/night at Eso.
We know you’ll have many questions about the finer details. Before asking them online, please take a few moments to read through our Event & Ticketing FAQ that has been updated to reflect these new changes; read our ESO22 event & ticketing faq here.
We are truly devastated. Esoteric is our livelihood. The entire community is hurting and we all feel as one. We will be together again. Until then, keep safe, be positive, keep supporting our industry, encourage those around you to do the right thing so that we can all get back to the dust and celebrate together once again. We’ll continue to keep you updated with all the amazing additions that we’re planning for the festival as a positive reminder that there is something massive to look forward to at the conclusion of these tough times!
