With tickets on the move for all stops of Stereosonic 2011, the festival organisers have made an announcement addressing a “serious issue”. You can read the full statement below.

We have been warned by our banks and Moshtix to be aware of an increase in fraudulent credit card activity and selling of invalid .PDF tickets. This is an industry wide problem that is not just for Dance Music events but apply to a variety of events including the purchasing from 3rd parties any Moshtix .PDF tickets.

We would like to simply say:

1. Do not purchase Moshtix .PDF tickets from anyone except or authorized outlets, as they are likely to be fraudulent tickets if purchased through another channel.
2. Think about your purchase, why would someone be selling tickets under face value for one of the hottest events.

If you are suspicious or If you have any questions, feel free to contact the moshtix team 1300 GET TIX or

If you purchase a .PDF ticket from an unauthorised seller, you run the risk of the ticket been cancelled, fake or invalid and you will not be able to access the event. Buy tickets from authorised ticketing companies or our industry sellers.

"2. Think about your purchase, why would someone be selling tickets under face value for one of the hottest events."

2. think about your what your writing in your article, why would someone buy a ticket off a scalper for the same amount as a legit one?

well that's ridiculous if you buy a whole heap of festival tickets then realise you're stuck and have to choose which one to go to

and if you decide to go to a festival, make sure you are available, think what you will be doing in that coming month - it's quite obvious!

Future Entertainment always have their promoters selling proper tickets, on proper ticket paper, at slightly less than advertised prices, and call them "Industry" tickets. They usually have "COMP" printed on them or $0.00 ... How are we meant to know if they are real?
