Considering that tickets went on-sale super early, and the event is being held in a venue with a much larger capacity, I expected that PAX Australia tickets would be available for a fair amount of time. But according to its official Twitter account PAX Australia's 3-day passes are already 90% sold out.
All that in less than 24 hours.
3 day badges to #PAXAus 2014 are now 90% sold out.

Also, that tweet was posted over six hours ago now. It's entirely possible that number has increased since the tweet was made. If you were thinking of holding off for those passes, you might want to rethink that strategy.
It's surprising. Larger capacity, clashes with the Melbourne Cup. I'm not saying I didn't expect PAX to sell out, of course I did. I just didn't expect tickets to sell like One Direction was in town. This is pretty insane. Most likely, before the day is out, PAX Australia will be all out of 3-day passes.
