This is something we should all be aware of and is becoming more widespread in Australia and across the world, where sites are popping up claiming to have best seats, advance tickets, VIP tickets and so on long before the official festival organiser has actually put the tickets on sale!

Check out the article in full from the SYDNEY MORNING HERALD – click here >>>

Here at e-tainment news we support the primary ticket agents and advise all our subscribers and visitors to always check out the official festival website first before buying tickets as they will list who has been given a ‘real’ allocation of tickets.

Wanting to create a one stop information resource where festival fans can check on their favourite Australian & New Zealand festivals, we bring you

Australia Festivals is a new blog aimed at giving you the best up to date information – dates, line ups, ticket costs etc to Australia and New Zealand’s best festivals.

We will post updates as we receive them from festival organisers and each festival has its own page where you can find dates, prices, line up and a link to buy tickets in complete security from the organisers own website or their officially approved primary ticket agent – click the ‘FESTIVAL LINE UPS’ link on the above menu and select the country and festival you are interested in.

We also welcome any comments you have about the festivals listed or if you know of any festival in your area that we are missing then let us know and it will be added.  If you buy tickets for any festival listed on our blog we would love to hear from you telling us about your ‘ticket buying’ experience, good or bad.

We are also looking for festival reviews and photos to publish for festivals in 2011 / 2012, so if you are going to any festival in Australia or New Zealand and want to see your words in print then send use the contact form or send us an email to press(@)

We look forward to hearing your comments and feedback.

We have also launched a TWITTER and FACEBOOK page so please sign up and join the festival revolution!
