Flume announces 2022 Australian tour – here’s how to get tickets

And of course, the lineup is incredible...

He’s conquered some of the biggest festival stages including Reading and Leeds, Coachella, Supersonic, Outside Lands, Splendour In The Grass, Lollapalooza and hosted incredible headline shows across the globe – now with his new album in hand Flume is bringing is ‘Palaces World Tour’ to Australian stages this year.

As one of Australia’s biggest-selling international touring artists Flume knows a thing or two about putting on a show, and if you witnessed any of his epic Coachella sets this year, you’ll know that his upcoming return home is going to be huge.

This tour announcement – marking his first live dates Down Under since 2019 – is in celebration of Flume’s upcoming new album Palaces. A record we’ll all get to hear this Friday.

Not one to ever do anything – albums or live performances included – by halves, Flume is bringing an incredible group of artists along for his upcoming tour dates.

Mesmerising Californian-based singer and producer Channel Tres will perform across all tour dates, while genre-bending mastermind Toro y Moi will feature on all dates, performing in Sydney and Brisbane and with a DJ set in Perth.

Local artist MAY-A, who performed with Flume onstage at Coachella, will perform in Perth and Sydney, and the prolific Caroline Polachek will also be a special guest in Sydney.

Palaces follows his 2019 Grammy-nominated mixtape Hi This Is Flume, and 2016’s studio album Skin. That release hit #1 on the ARIA Album chart, #8 on the US Billboard 200, and won Flume a Grammy for ‘Best Dance/Electronic Album’.

After moving to NSW’s Northern Rivers after living in Los Angeles, Palaces sees Flume reconnecting with nature and collecting field recordings, the son of a horticulturist inspired by local wildlife.

For presale information see above.

Log into your Ticketmaster account and update your password if needed!

Get in early and ensure all your MyTicketmaster account details are up to date – from your password to your card details and your phone number.

Ticketmaster will regularly ask you to update your password to ensure the security of your account – you don’t want to get stuck having to change your password while the ticket timer is counting down during onsale as you can risk losing the incredible tickets you have secured.

Instead, now that you know you want to purchase tickets, log into your account and update your password today to ensure you are ready to nab those tickets.

Get to know Ticketmaster’s Smart Queue

If you aren’t familiar with Smart Queue, it is Ticketmaster’s way of creating a clear and fair process for thousands of fans to buy tickets in a short space of time. Fans enter the virtual Waiting Room prior to onsale time before joining the Smart Queue – which acts as a ‘virtual line’, helping us protect you and your tickets in a more effective way.

The time you join the Waiting Room does not determine your place in the Smart Queue, so we recommend joining at least 10 minutes prior to the event going on sale.

When the sale begins, the Smart Queue will open and everyone in the Waiting Room is given a place in line. Those who did not join the Waiting Room will be placed at the end of the line.

  • Sign in to your Ticketmaster account at least 10 minutes before joining the Waiting Room. This will speed up your purchase later.
  • Confirm you have a valid form of payment in your account with current email and billing information. This will make checkout a breeze.
  • Resist the urge to refresh. Your page will automatically refresh when you enter the Smart Queue.
  • Keep an eye on the time! When it’s your turn, your spot will be held for 10 minutes to begin shopping.
  • Just like before, tickets are always based on availability, demand, and are not guaranteed.

Hints and tips for improving your chances of getting Flume tickets

Make sure you have a My Ticketmaster account

Get the basics covered before tickets go on sale by logging in and checking your Ticketmaster account ahead of time. If you don’t have a Ticketmaster Account then make sure you sign up in advance – Ticketmaster.com.au.

Sign into your My Ticketmaster account ahead of time

Remember to triple check your passwords, account information, and billing information are all filled in correctly in advance, that way you’re not facing any last-minute account updates when trying to process your order.

Keep your options open with ‘Best Available’

Save time by searching “Best Available,” which scans all sections fast – it’s quicker than searching sections one at a time.

Keep an eye on the clock

There will be a time limit applied to all transactions as they’re progressed through the ticket purchasing stages. Remember to keep an eye on the timer on your screen and move through the processing pages as quickly as possible (this is even easier when you’ve completed the account set-up stage we mentioned above).

Don’t refresh your screen

Stick to one window while you’re in the Waiting Room and when you’re being pushed through the Smart Queue and always resist the urge to refresh.

Hitting the refresh button means you’ll lose your place in the queue and, as frustrating as it can get, patience is the only way to win this game. Ticketmaster is equipped with sophisticated systems that are designed to manage and process ticket purchases as quickly as possible. The queuing system that appears on your screen will place you at the front of the line as soon as possible.

Remember: there are a lot of fans

We’re expecting this to be a very popular event. When a popular event goes on sale there are hundreds, and sometimes thousands, of customers all attempting to purchase tickets at the same time. Tickets are sold as long as seats are available, and sometimes they go very quickly.

Be sure to follow the above tips to ensure you have the best chance of snapping up some tickets.

Flume will bring his new album Palaces to venues around Australia in November and December 2022. Tickets are on sale via Ticketmaster.com.au.
