What time does the event start?

Depending on your ticket type, your session time dictates what time you are allowed to gain entry into the festival. You must arrive on your session time or before the next session begins.

Tickets do not have an end session time, so you are welcome to stay for the rest of the event!


How long does the brunch go for?

There are two ticketed times for the Brunch-tini: 10am or 12:30pm.

Each brunch session goes for a duration of 2 hours, and after it has finished you will be welcome to check out the rest of the event for the day.


Can I leave the event and return?

Due to the staggered session times for the day, and our venue capacity – we will not be allowing pass outs for ticket holders. This means you will not be allowed to gain instant re-entry should you choose to leave the event during your session.


What type of espresso martinis will be there on the day?

We will have all kinds of espresso martinis available on the day from all our favourite brands.

This will include nitro espresso martinis, shaken espresso martinis, espresso martinis with a twist and even affogato espresso martinis for the brunch ticket holders!


What does a session time mean?

We have multiple session times for the festival.

If you are a Brunch-tini ticket holder, your session start time is when your brunch begins. Ticket holders must arrive on time to be seated. Your brunch will run for 2 hours and after this time you are welcome to move from the restaurant and join in the rest of the festivities!

If you are a Wake and Shake, Sunday Sleep-in or Later Shaker ticket holder, the session start time on your ticket is the time from which you are allowed entry to the event. If your session time is 10:00am, it means you are welcome to arrive anywhere between your session start time and before the next session begins at 1pm.

If your session start time is 1pm it means you will be allowed to gain entry from 1pm onwards. Similarly if you have purchased our additional session ‘Later Shaker’ you can not gain entry until 3pm onwards. Please note: you will not be permitted to gain entry before your session start time, or after the next session has begun.
