Huge huge huge.

The ballot for the 14th incarnation of Golden Plains is officially open. Going down in early March, the Golden Plains ballot is the best way to get your hands on a festival ticket.

If you’re already a subscriber, you’re entitled to enter the first round ballot, closing in the evening of Monday October 14. If you’re not a subscriber yet, there’s still a chance to enter the second round ballot, which closes on Tuesday October 22. The first round of tickets are released to lucky ballot winners in mid-October, and the second round is released roughly a week later. If you’re unsuccessful the first time round, you’re automatically entered into the second round.

This year’s Golden Plains lineup featured the star-studded talent of dream-pop icons Beach House, Four Tet, Magic Dirt, Confidence Man and more.

Golden Plains goes down between Saturday March 7 and Monday March 9, 2020. The first round ballot closes Monday October 14 at 10.14pm and the second round ballot closes Tuesday October 22 at 10.14pm. To enter the ballot, head to the festival website.
