Third Party Ticket Resellers
- We strongly recommend only purchasing tickets for FAC shows from fac.oztix.com.au or an official Oztix retail outlet.

In the case that this occurs, the first person to present a valid ticket will be admitted to the venue. Every subsequent person holding the same ticket will be turned away.
- If you have purchased a ticket from a third party site which you suspect is fraudulent, contact your bank to request a charge back.
