is a labour of love that started as a very small party
in a park in March of 2000. We did it because we wanted
to share the music we love with other like-minded
people in a beautiful outdoor setting close to the
centre of the city
and although its grown
just a bit over the last 11 years the idea is exactly
the same: Music we love, smiling people and a great
party amongst grass, trees and (hopefully!) brilliant
blue skies, right in the heart of the city.
Each year we do our very best to bring you the freshest
bunch of artists in styles of music we think matter
the most right now, constantly refine and improve
everything about the show and give you a high quality
Parklife experience. We want Parklife to be a brilliant,
glowing day you and your best friends look back on
fondly for the rest of your lives!

UNVEILS (WORLDS MOST) RIDICULOUSLY EXPENSIVE
CROWD-SOURCED, MONEY-CAN-BUY FESTIVAL EXPERIENCE LIKE
9 September 2011: In time for their upcoming 2011
shows, Parklife organisers have released the worlds
most ridiculously expensive one-day ticket, retailing
at a whopping AU $7,000!
Events John Wall comments, We just read
a report saying festival ticket prices have been rising.
Having kept a lid on Parklife ticket pricing, we are
shocked to find that we haven't been part of this
apparently industry-wide trend. Always keen to stay
ahead of the market, we've decided to make up for
lost time (and raise money for charity) by releasing
the world's most expensive festival ticket. That's
right, the new Ridiculously Expensive Ticket has arrived!
a slip-and-slide entry, personal drinks caddie, artist
cabin, and portable VIP area, the profits of the Ridiculously
Expensive Ticket will go to the (not very ridiculous)
charity, Heaps Decent - an initiative committed to
nurturing the creativity of underprivileged and Indigenous
young people and emerging artists.
winning features were voted by Parklifes 50,000
strong Facebook group via a daily poll and battled
it out against other ridiculous ticket options, such
as sedan chair Egyptian-style transportation around
the festival, an iPad VVVVIP lanyard, a personal publicist
and a personal stylist. Due to an overwhelming response
(around 25,000 impressions per question and over 1,500
total votes), Fuzzy decided to package together the
most popular features, as voted for by fans.
Available in a very limited quantity - exactly one
(yes 1) is up for grabs, the Ridiculously Expensive
Ticket will offer the ultimate, once-in-a-lifetime
music experience for those with some serious cash
to burn and allows access to all the fantastic benefits
the cheekily named More Expensive Ticket has to offer,
such as access to the exclusive Garden Bar which features
a cocktail bar, viewing platform, VIP toilets, concierge
with phone charging, cloakroom, information service,
canapés, massages and more.
Ridiculously Expensive Ticket will be available for
the Parklife shows in Melbourne (Saturday 24th September),
Perth (Sunday 25th September), Brisbane (Saturday
Sydney (Sunday 2nd October), and Adelaide (Monday
3rd October), and will include:
A personal drinks caddie (no more queuing)
An artist cabin backstage with personal
Portable VIP area with security entourage

Fuzzy Events John Wall comments, It was
never our intention to actually sell a Ridiculously
Expensive Ticket, but due to the overwhelming response
we had on Facebook, we decided to turn these crazy
requests into reality...and help a good cause at the
same time. Our More Expensive Ticket is already a
huge hit with visitors to Parklife looking for that
something extra. Now weve created a once-in-a-lifetime
Parklife experience, the profits from which will help
a fantastic charity that weve supported for
some years now.
providing resources and opportunities, Heaps Decent
supports the development of high quality Australian
music with a unique identity. Fuzzy have been supporting
Heaps Decent through cash donations, in kind administration
support as well as partnering the Cash for Comp scheme
since 2008. Over the last two years Heaps Decent has
been able to raise over $100,000 by asking Fuzzy Guest
ticket holders to donate at the gate to Fuzzy Festivals
and events. The funding has allowed the organisation
to grow at an exponential rate providing workshops
to more than five times the numbers of young people
