  • What is Starrcast?
    Starrcast is a wrestling convention unlike any other. There will be wrestling merchandise, memorabilia, photo ops, autographs, and everything else you would expect at a convention. The major difference is that Starrcast presents numerous “stage shows” featuring live podcasts, roasts, stand up comedy, panel discussions on major moments in history, “Q&A” sessions, debates, as well as wrestling shows. Also for the very first time, Starrcast is going international! We are so happy to partner with Oceania Pro Wrestling as well as Visit Victoria to present this extraordinary event. For this first time event, Starrcast is pleased to offer two unique wrestling shows. Mickie James’ Presents “H.E.R” ,which will focus and celebrate women’s wrestling, and Bret Hart’s “Australian Stampede”, which will highlight local and international stars from across the globe. The wrestling events will also feature Championship Matches by TNA Wrestling.

    Platinum bracelets receive the following: Guaranteed general admission seating (first come, first served) to non-premium stage shows in Platinum section, plus tickets in first five rows of all premium stage shows (1st come, 1st served), and admission to the VIP after party on Saturday night.

Both bracelet holders receive access to all autograph signing sessions on all three days at the convention (meet & greets sold separately), and general admission access to the two wrestling shows, HER and Australian Stampede.
  • So why would I buy platinum over gold?
    Only Platinum bracelet holders are guaranteed a seat at the stage shows including the three premium stage shows (Mickie James KickOff Party, Eric Bischoff Live and Hitman:a Sunday with Bret Hart). Gold bracelet holders do not receive access to any of the three premium stage shows. Stage show seating is limited by the capacity of the rooms they are held in. In the past for some of our most anticipated shows, we have had to turn away Gold bracelet holders due to this. Platinum bracelet holders also receive access to the VIP after party included with their purchase.
