We have tried to both streamline and keep costs to a minimum for you the festival goer this year, however, we are a victim of our success.
Rather than one option for Passes. We will have THREE options for the Saturday Pass
An Adult Pass is $65
A Concession/AUTLA Member Pass is $50 (Concession Card or Proof of Membership required on site).
A Child Pass is $20
AND a Group Pass (That’s 5 for the price of 4) is $260!
That’s for all workshops, the Lunchtime Workshop Concert and the Gala Afternoon Concert.
Remember, a major feature of the festival is that the workshop participants get to perform their workshop song on the Main Stage with the featured artists during the Main Concerts!
The Sunday the 17th of May is a FREE event, although we do ask that you make a gold coin donation to Emerald Primary School for letting us use their lovely facilities for another year.
The Saturday pass will provide you entry to ALL workshops and the Saturday Gala Afternoon Concert.
For the non playing ukulele enthusiast, the vast majority of the festival is free to enjoy. However, the 4pm concert on Saturday is a ticketed event. To cater to your interest, there is also a $25 concert ticket available online and at the door on the day.
There is no need to book into workshops beforehand. You have a Day Pass – go to one workshop, go to more than one, you are welcome to make up your mind on the day.
The price for workshops at other festivals can start to add up if you are feeling like going to a lot of them. Here at The Hills Ukulele Festival, we want you to feel comfortable (financially as well as emotionally) about going to as many workshops as you like.
Should I book online or buy a pass on the day?
Good question, you could do either, but we estimate that a prebooked festival goer will get to the ticket booth and be on their way to a workshop or performance in 30 seconds or less. Buying on the day will take up to 2 minutes per person if you are paying by credit card. Imagine a line of people in front of you and decide which plan works best for you. Also, prebooking will make life less stressful for the many people putting this festival together – For example, Imagine if we ran out of wine on Saturday night because we underestimated the crowd?!
