Update: Garterbelts & Gasoline - Last Chance!

Well the countdown is on, Garterbelts & Gasoline is just three weeks away! THREE! Aside from starting to plan all my outfits and sending off some interview questions to some overseas guests (shhhh!) there’s still plenty to think about. Including getting your tickets!!

Tickets for all events are currently on sale and there are just 7 days left to pre-book! Which I seriously suggest you do as the Friday and Saturday nights are renowned for selling out EXTREMELY quickly!

Pre-ordering your tickets saves you money and if you order the Deluxe Pack you also get a GB&G decal pack and 2012 GloveBox Magazine and Festival Program for FREE! You can download the ticket booking form at www.garterbeltsandgasoline.com.au  or on the Cruzin Magazine website www.cruzin.com.au or just call Paul the Festival Director on 0428 887522 to place your order.
