We know how many patrons like the opportunity to bring their own chairs to large scale shows. Kryal has limited capacity for chairs front of stage. 

Kryal does provide grandstand seating free of charge on a first come first serve basis on the side of the arena with sightlines to the stage, however the organisers of both Gold Country Music Festival and Maximum 80’s want patrons to have the opportunity to experience the show seated on the arena but this is only viable as a premium option. Our interest is to ensure as many people as possible can enjoy these incredible shows so it is necessary to limit the number of chairs on the arena
