As with previous years, the Special Events category is particularly variable as it is highly dependent on whether performances that cannot be classified into other categories take place. Revenue in the Special Events category increased by 85.2% from $10.98 million to $20.34 million while total attendances grew more strongly, increasing by 164.7%. However there was a significant drop in the average ticket price, falling from $86.90 to $42.26, explaining why revenue growth was softer than growth in attendance.
The increase in this category can be explained by the aforementioned fluctuation in events. Major events in this category in 2015 included the Doctor Who Symphonic Spectacular which toured nationally in 2015 and the Floriade Nightfest.
