NSW Dine and Discover partnership with event ticketing platform Humanitix

NSW residents can now use their Dine & Discover vouchers to attend live events that are hosted on Humanitix

A Sydney-based social enterprise has become the first and only event ticketing platform to have partnered with Service NSW for their Dine & Discover program. Humanitix, the Aussie not-for-profit ticketing platform, is now accepting Discover vouchers as a payment option for customers purchasing tickets to live events in NSW. 

The Discover vouchers can be used across the thousands of events on Humanitix, as long as they are an in-person event based in NSW. Event organisers do not have to register with Service NSW to be eligible for this program. This means that attendees could use the vouchers to purchase tickets to festivals, live shows, workshops and other events, as long as the ticket is purchased by 30 June 2021. The best part is that the actual event date can be after the voucher expiry date – so you can get amongst the many exciting events that are slated for the second half of the year.

This partnership has been welcome news for event organisers who have had a terrible run in the past year. 

“The Dine & Discover vouchers are a much-needed boost to the many businesses in regional NSW. Tourism, events and hospitality businesses have done it tough for the past 18 months with bushfires, floods and COVID affecting many businesses,” says Sam Tooley, the Director of the South Coast Food & Wine Festival.

South Coast Food & Wine Festival is one of the numerous events in Humanitix that the Discover vouchers can be used for. Adult tickets are $30, so with the $25 Discover voucher attendees will be able to enjoy the festival offerings for a mere $5 (the price of a Child ticket). 

“The South Coast Food & Wine Festival is an opportunity for many of the great producers from around NSW to showcase their produce to a highly engaged audience of 'foodies', providing a much-needed sales boost along with networking with other producers,” says Tooley.


Among other eligible events, there are regional festivals like Good Times (from the creators of Strawberry Fields), Narooma Oyster Festival & the Chamber Music Festival in Grafton; travelling film tours like the Banff Mountain Film Festival and Gutsy Girls Adventure Film Tour; and the world’s largest Mad Hatter’s Tea Party in the heart of Sydney. You can search all events here.

Buying tickets on Humanitix also comes with a surprising perk - 100% of the booking fee profits fund education projects for disadvantaged kids. The innovative tech-charity has been transforming resented booking fees into measurable social impact since 2017. To date, Humanitix has donated almost $800,000 to programs like Indigenous scholarships and education for underprivileged girls in low-income countries. 

Humanitix is backed by Google.org, Atlassian Foundation and the NSW Government, with numerous awards and accolades to their name, including Outstanding Achievement in The Australian Charity Awards 2020, NSW Premier’s Award for Business Excellence 2019 and Google Impact Challenge Winner 2018.

Wallabies legend John Eales has been a Humanitix Ambassador since 2018. Eales says, “Humanitix shows what’s possible when entrepreneurial thinking meets charitable ambition. Every event organiser can give their event an incredible impact by ticketing through Humanitix.”
