Concert Lover's Pass - Closed

The Concert Lover's Pass gives standard seat access to all events in the Festival, but does not include the two 'Up Close' events. This pass is a great option for people who want to immerse themselves in the Festival and access the 'Meet The Artist' sessions, Masterclasses and 'Festival Conversations'.

Concert Lover's Passes are $850 and provide a small discount off regular individual seat pricing. Gala Dinner tickets at $140 are purchased separately.

VIP Festival Pass - Sorry Sold Out

The VIP Festival Pass is our premium pass which gives premium seat entry to every event in the Festival including two 'Up Close' events.

The first 'Up Close' experience will include a bus trip to the Nelson Lakes National Park where pass-holders will enjoy an intimate concert by the Jerusalem Quartet at the Chapel of Christ at the Lake in St. Arnaud, followed by lunch at the Alpine Lodge.

The second 'Up Close' experience will feature a concert by violinist Nikki Chooi at St Peter and Paul's Church, on the Waimea Plains, followed by a picnic lunch at a local winery.

VIP Festival Passes are $985 and are restricted to 80 passes only. Gala Dinner tickets at $140 are purchased separately.
