How do I vote for the Australian Line Dance Awards?
Is there a bar at the venue?
BYO Food/Nibblies/Non-Alcoholic drinks during the day.
Strictly NO BYO at night. There will be a bar on-site serving alcohol.
Are vegan/gluten-free/food intolerant diners catered for?
Yes, just let us know your dietary requirements when booking your ticket.
Considering a balcony ticket?
Please note: This is a spectator pass only for non-dancers. Unfortunately, they are restricted from entering the main dance floor area.
Is there a schedule of events for Saturday night?
Why do we need a served meal on Saturday night?
Unfortunately, this is to do with state liquor laws. If we didn't serve a meal, and still have alcohol available at the socials, we would need to employ two (2) security guards from the time doors open in the morning to the time the last person leaves at the night. As you can imagine, 2 staff for 15 hours each day, 4 days of the weekend, this cost is quite substantial. For 2022, this cost alone would have been as much as the cost of the meals.
Ticket prices will remain the same, but you wouldn't have food.
Something to note: There may be added delay in entering as security will need to check all bags coming into the venue.
