Carriage C

Jay Howie

For many of us, music is much more than just a form of expression. This sentiment rings true for Australian musician Jay Howie. For him, music offers an unadulterated emotional release; a profound outpouring of one’s soul that fills the proverbial cup of each of Jay’s Blues compositions.

Frquently Asked Questions

Will I be cold?

Be Prepared – you won’t be cold in the carriages, but you may need a jacket when you exit the train during the breaks. Throughout the winter months, you will be seated in your starting carriage upon arrival and cafe style heaters are placed along the Queenscliff platform to keep the chill at bay whilst receive your meal, visit the bar and depart the show.

What if it rains?

Check the weather forecast and bring a waterproof jacket or umbrella. Please note that there is limited cover at Drysdale and almost none at Suma Park, so if its a rainy evening, waterproof jackets are a good idea. Keep in mind that you will be out until almost midnight, so it will be much colder when you are going home than when you leave the house. Also keep in mind that during the stops (three times during the evening, when you change carriages, refill at the bar, have a smoke and use the toilets) you will be outdoors for about 15 minutes while our security staff check and clean carriages. Even on the coldest night, the carriages get quite warm and on the hottest night, the carriages can be very hot, as they are not air-conditioned. Layers are a good idea!

How do I sell any spare tickets?

Post your details on our Ticket Classifieds

Should you have 5+ tickets to sell, please contact our office on 1300 885 993 or contact us

Remember you can sell your tickets for any amount not exceeding the face value.

Follow this link to read our Terms and Conditions.

What carriage will I be in?

The tickets indicate the carriage in which you will begin the journey.

Everyone swaps carriages at the stops. The carriage orders are as follows:

  • Start Carriage A – B, C end in Carriage D
  • Start Carriage B – C, D end in Carriage A
  • Start Carriage C – D, A end in Carriage B
  • Start Carriage D – A, B end in Carriage C

How does the ticketing & seating system work?

The tickets indicate the carriage in which you will begin the journey and your subsequent carriage order.

This does not mean you can’t choose the carriage you want to be in as your start carriage as long as there are seats available in that section, i.e. you can start in Carriage D and work your way back from there.

It is still essential, as with any event, to purchase all tickets in one transaction under one surname. However, as the individual seats in the carriage are not numbered, you can purchase extra tickets if they are available in your chosen start carriage – as long as you make sure that whoever books the extra tickets books them in the same carriage as your tickets.

The carriage orders are as follows:

  • Start Carriage A – B, C end in Carriage D
  • Start Carriage B – C, D end in Carriage A
  • Start Carriage C – D, A end in Carriage B
  • Start Carriage D – A, B end in Carriage C

Please note tickets are General Admission. It is important to book tickets under one surname in one transaction, otherwise you may be allocated separate carriages. So, remember, if you want to be together, book tickets in one hit!

What is the dress code?

Keep in mind that you will be out until almost midnight, so it will be much colder when you are going home than when you leave the house. Also keep in mind that during the stops (three times during the evening, when you change carriages, refill at the bar, have a smoke and use the toilets) you will be outdoors for about 15-20 minutes while our security staff check and clean carriages.

Even on the coldest night, the carriages get quite warm and on the hottest night, the carriages can be very hot, as they are not air-conditioned. Layers are a good idea! Please note that there is limited cover at Drysdale platform and almost none at Suma Park platform, so if it’s a rainy evening, waterproof jackets are a good idea.
