Tickets & Entry
Can I pay for my ticket in Instalments?

Yes, Payment Plans are spread out across 6 instalments paid each month leading up to the festival. Look for the flexible payment options at checkout.

How do I swap my tickets for another day?

Head to the Promiseland Official Ticket Exchange which will be available by mid March, you can click here

  1. Click “Swap Tickets”
  2. Select the tickets you’d like to swap
  3. Enter your information

I bought my ticket on payment plan but my recent payment declined. What do I do?

If your payment has failed, we will attempt to take payment again in 3 days.
If the second payment attempt fails, the final payment attempt for that instalment will be tried in another 3 days. If the third payment attempt fails, then your booking will be cancelled.

Each time a payment is unsuccessful we will update you via email. The email will contain the reason the payment has failed.

The most common reasons a payment may fail is that the nominated card has been cancelled (i.e. after being lost or stolen), expired or there are insufficient funds in the bank account.

If you need to update your payment method, you can do so by logging into your Lyte account here.

If you have sufficient funds to cover the payment but the payment still fails, we recommend contacting your bank.

Can I return or swap my tickets before I’ve finished my payment plan?

No, your payment plan must be paid in full in order to return or swap the ticket via Lyte.

Why is the return offer price different from what I paid?

Lyte utilises a dynamic pricing system similar to how airline tickets and hotel rooms are sold, called dynamic pricing. It constantly takes into account factors such as supply, demand and prices on the secondary market. As demand for an event changes, prices for returned or requested tickets will fluctuate.

Why are my tickets showing as greyed out when I go to return my tickets?

This is because Lyte is not able to make an offer on any of the tickets in your order right now. Not to worry, they are still valid for you to use! We may be able to make an offer on your tickets in the future, we just aren't able to take returns at this time. Before we can make you an offer for your tickets, we need to go find a buyer.
Lyte does everything in its power to find a new fan to buy your ticket, but in order to make an offer we need fans on the waitlist. If we can't make you an offer right away then we have currently satisfied all fan requests.
You can sign up to be notified when we can make an offer for your tickets by selecting the "Get email when there is a buyer" option. We will reach out to you via email as soon as we're ready to make you an offer. Signing up to be notified doesn't return your tickets. If we're able to make an offer on any of your tickets you'll get an email and be directed to the return flow where you can select how many tickets you want to return.

The tickets I want are sold out, what do I do?

Sign up to our waitlist for your desired tickets here
If that ticket becomes available, we’ll email you to confirm and your card will be charged so that the ticket officially becomes yours!

  1. Click “Request Tickets” and choose the type and quantity. The price that is shown to you will be the price you are charged if we are able to fulfil your request.
  2. Enter attendee & payment information.
  3. Click “Request Tickets” to secure your spot on the waitlist.

Please note that a request does not guarantee a ticket. The number of tickets returned by other fans will determine how many requests on the waitlist we can fulfil.

How do I know my ticket is valid?

Only tickets bought from Lyte are valid, tickets from third-party sellers are not valid or genuine. To ensure you are buying a genuine ticket please follow the links & information on our website, please consider this before booking.

What constitutes a valid photo ID?

Photographic forms of identification such as a passport or driving license are acceptable. Service NSW apps are valid as well.

What happens if I lose my wristband?

Wristbands will only be issued once. Broken or lost wristbands cannot be replaced so please look after them.

Do I get a refund if I can no longer make it?

Refunds require an approval process due to certain circumstances.

Do I get a refund if one of the headliners drops off?

In the case of a headliner cancelling we will endeavour to seek a replacement well and truly before the festival dates. We’ve ensured that our line-up is bullet proof with certain restrictions in place, however we understand things happen and will endeavour to address these issues as they arise. Refunds will be issued should we face several major cancellations with no replacements.
