Splendour in the Grass 2014 ticketing sales this morning was disastrous, leaving punters overcharged with fees in excess of $1000 minimum!
The Moshtix system appeared to have been hacked, offering false discounted ticket prices, and others were faced with excessive credit card charges.
Splendour has released a statement saying:
During today’s Splendour in The Grass on-sale, due to technical issues some customers were erroneously offered reduced priced tickets and charged incorrect credit card fees. All of these affected orders will be cancelled today, and customers contacted to allow them to purchase at the correct prices. This was an isolated technical issue that did not affect other ticket buyers and tickets are continuing to sell fast for the festival.
Ticket pricing this year increased by $9 for a single day ticket to $149 and a 3-day ticket being $355 and camping costing $99, and don’t forget all the booking fees!
