AUSTRALIA: Music fans travelling to Brisbane for Stereosonic at the RNA Showgrounds on 5-6 December can take advantage of new online and group fares from Brisbane's Airtrain, with substantial discounts available for trips between the airport and Australia's hippest city. 

Brisbane’s Airtrain offers discounts for Stereosonic Festival goers

Offering the fastest, most efficient and affordable way to reach the city, Airtrain is the premier rail link connecting Brisbane Airport to the CBD, and takes travellers to the heart of the city, close to the Convention Centre, hotels and shops so music fans can get straight into the action.

For those packing their dancing shoes for the electronic music festival in Brisbane, a 10% discount is available for all advance online bookings as well as substantial discounts for groups of two or more between the airport and Brisbane city. Prices start as low as $28 for two people booking online from the airport to the CBD, substantially less than the cost of the $43 average taxi fare equivalent during peak and off peak times.

Festival goers can also plan their journey with Airtrain's new mobile app. Available for iPhone, the app provides timetable information and a handy “Next Trains Today” function showing the next train's departure from any station on the Airport line.

It also offers easy access to mobile tickets when entering and exiting an Airtrain station, so passengers can fast-track their trip to and from the airport.

For those making a last minute dash to the festival, Brisbane's Airtrain service is available direct to Brisbane Showgrounds from the airport. Fans must disembark at Fortitude Valley station located only a ten-minute walk from the showgrounds.

Brisbane's Airtrain departs every 15 minutes from the city in peak periods and every 30 minutes in off peak periods to the airport, and takes only 20 minutes, Monday to Friday. All services on Saturday and Sunday operate every 30 minutes. Airtrain operates seven days a week from 5am-10pm on weekdays and 6am-10pm on weekends.
