Festival tickets and ferry tickets are available below for Mode Festival 2023.

Please note that you require a separate return ferry ticket, departing from King Street Wharf. This fee purely goes towards the private ferry required for your trip to and from Cockatoo Island. The ticket includes a specific time of departure, chosen below, and return from the island.

Return ferries run every hour until the festival ends, after which there will be consistent trips made from two wharves back to King Street Wharf.

Note that access via the public ferry is not possible, due to ruling from NSW Police.
