Rainbow Serpent Festival 2020 Updated Ticket FAQ

Thank you everyone for your patience while we work through details of our reformatted events and tickets.  Please read this FAQ for further information regarding the new events and requests for refunds.

Due to a bushfire that hit the Rainbow Serpent Festival site on 20th December, Rainbow Serpent Festival 2020 we have unfortunately had to reshuffle our festival this year.

Eventbrite will automatically refund all RSF2020 tickets purchased through the Eventbrite platform. Refunds will be processed this week, please allow 10-14 business days for the funds to appear on your statement. 

This includes people previously requesting no refund or partial refunds. We appreciate some of you were prepared to not request refunds - but now that things have changed so much the best thing to do is to refund everybody and make a fresh start. 

The good news is, Rainbow is taking over the city with an impressive number of the original headline acts you have been looking forward to in venues all around Melbourne. Come together, catch up with old friends, make new ones and get a fix of the Rainbow spirit to tide you over until our Regen Edition of Rainbow over Easter.
