a comedy festival in boring canberra..? they’re having a laugh, innit…

2013 festival was a great success.


I got through to the ticketing people and it seems the invitation code was put up there by mistake and has now been removed.

Does anyone know the “invitation code” to buy tickets to the DAAS shows?

I waited all morning and then when the tickets went on sale they required an invitation code. I have tried calling and emailing but can’t get a reply.

I am NOT asking for the Riotact premium service code that was made available to premium members so that they could purchase presale tickets to the opening gala but rather the code that is required for the general public to buy tickets today.
