Image saying Don't get ripped off

A new education campaign, ‘Don’t get ripped off’, addresses the laws around ticket scalping and lets Victorian event goers know that there are new laws in place to stop ticket scalpers ripping off audiences and ensure that tickets to major events are available for everyone.

Ticket package sellers are now required to be authorised by the event organiser.

When the government declares an event as a major event, it becomes illegal to sell or advertise for resale tickets for more than 10 per cent above face value.

Individual ticket advertisements must also include ticket and seating details.
