At esoteric we believe small & intimate is the new big as it brings the energy & vibes like none other.
To ensure our community stays cool, small and intimate we currently have a strictly limited capacity.
TICKETING & BALLOTS
ESOTERIC 2021 IS 100% SOLD OUT!!! For those wondering how that happened, keep reading below…
We are tightening up the way tickets become accessible so we can maintain familiar positivity within our magical community event. Every single ticket purchased must have the name of the person entering. No longer can you buy extra tickets under one name and claim them for your mates at the gate.
To ensure we can keep the Esoteric Family coming back to enjoy our community over and over, past buyers will again get first priority on tickets.
If you purchased online tickets for ESO 2017, 2018 or 2019 then you will automatically receive a unique code that allows you to purchase up to 2 tickets (one for you and one for a named friend) from Thursday 3 September. You guys are our tribe and we want you to have the first opportunity, so we are giving you a 6 week head start on tickets.
For those who attended between 2017, 2018 or 2019 but did not purchase directly online or bought via a friend/reseller who didn’t get the code yet and for any remaining tickets, we’ve introduced a ballot system to ensure that tickets are distributed fairly.
From 7pm on Thursday 15 October, those lucky enough to receive a ticket ballot from the draw will get the opportunity to purchase 2 tickets for Esoteric 2021.
On Thursday 15 October there will be more codes issued than tickets available so please note that a ballot does not guarantee you’ll get a ticket as it will still be on a first in best dressed basis. In the unlikely scenario where tickets are not sold out by the 30th of October, then we will release a second round of ballots out to those on the ballot waiting list.
If you intend on using ZipPay payment plans then please ensure you have activated your ZipPay account over the weekend to avoid disappointment in case of delays with your Zip account activation & verification at zip.co.
There will be an email sent out on the Thursday to those who were successful in the ticket ballot draw with instructions on how to buy.
Good luck to everyone who entered the ballot, be online, alert and ready Thursday 15 October.
The timeline for the launch of tickets are;
Thurs 3 September – ESO2017-2019 buyers receive their unique code to buy
Tues 8 September – All other ballots open.
Tues 15 September – Birthday tickets application opens (now closed)
Friday 10 October – Ticket ballots close
Thurs 15 October – Successful 1st round ballots receive their unique code to buy.
Thursday 30 October – If any tickets are left, a 2nd round of ballots will be released

We know everyone is doing things tough at the moment, that’s why we’ve decided to introduce payment plans. This makes it easier for our Esotericans to purchase tickets without having to fork out the cash upfront.
In addition to traditional payment methods, we’re introducing ZipPay as a payment option. If you are planning to use ZipPay, some individuals may require pre-approval. It’s highly recommended to set up your ZipPay account at zip.co in advance to ensure a smooth purchase during the ticketing launch if you decide to use a payment plan.
There will be no hold on ticket tiers at all, once they are sold they are gone…
After consultation with the Buloke Shire Council & relevant authorities, we simply cannot have a long line of vehicles blocking local roads again so we have to introduce a vehicle pass. We must reduce the amount of vehicles impacting the region and encourage carpooling for safer driving. This in turn allows us to adequately plan cars vs campsites to better support and improve our onsite infrastructure including entry road upgrades and your overall festival experience. To achieve this, we recommend utilising transport services offered or carpooling with friends. A single vehicle pass is a requirement for each vehicle entering the site at a low cost of $20 + BF.
EARLY ENTRY PASS
We’re also introducing the ability to arrive a day early with an early access pass. This is limited to only a lucky few who’ll gain access on Thursday. There will be some light entertainment on Thursday in the campgrounds for those interested in beating the Friday rush to get in and set up early. Limited Early Access Passes will cost $50 + BF to cover costs of keeping you safe for the extra day. This includes extra traffic management, security, medical, fire patrols plus extra event staffing and operations required for the extra 24 hrs. The early entry will also ease the amount of traffic coming through the gates on the Friday, making entry lines more efficient than ever.
HOW TO AVOID GETTING SCAMMED BY FAKE TICKET SELLERS
We’d like to take a quick moment to warn people about the large amount of scammers and fake tickets that are online currently which is especially an issue as events such as our come close to full capacity.
Triniq and Tixel will be the ONLY places where you can transfer a ticket to a new name. All other platforms used to resell or buy 2nd hand tickets will not be accepted as a valid ticket. Do the safe thing, use the two official platforms only to avoid disappointment later. Name changes will be available from December 1st through till February 14th. If your ticket doesn’t match your name, you will be denied entry at the gate.
If you arrive to Esoteric with a non valid ticket, you will be asked to leave and drive back home because we will be at full capacity. NO EXCEPTIONS as we strictly adhere to our permit.
There are all kinds of scamming attempts that range from scammers making up their own fake tickets to pretending to act on behalf of official ticket swapping companies or even scammers just grabbing the money and running with no proof of tickets whatsoever. Don’t risk it, just use Triniq & Tixel.
We have partnered with Tixel to create a safe marketplace to swap tickets. Please only buy tickets through Tixel to avoid dodgy sellers and never transfer money to anyone via a bank transfer as these are likely scammers.
