Terms of Sale


Valid ticket

Your email confirmation cannot be used as a ticket. Only the ticket with barcode is valid. Make sure the barcode on your ticket is readable.

Print@Home tickets must be printed at home.  The organisers are not able to provide the tools to print this type of ticket on the site of the event. Anyone who has forgotten or lost their Print@Home will be refused access to the concert due to lack of a valid ticket. The Print@Home tickets can only be used once to enter the hall and lose their validity after the first check. In case several tickets with an identical barcode are in circulation, only the first presented will be considered valid. The event organiser may refuse access to the concert when several prints, imitations or copies of this ticket type have been made. Do not buy such a ticket, as you risk ending up with a ticket that has already been used!

Age restrictions

For safety reasons, children under the age of 6 are not allowed in the concert areas. All persons under 16 years of age must be accompanied by an adult to access the concert areas. The organizers decline all liability for any injuries caused by failure to comply with this policy.

Access to the following locations is restricted to people over 18 years of age from 10pm: Ipanema, El Mundo, Pool Parties, Ibis, Lake House. Access to Lisztomania is open to anyone over the age of 16.

If the owner of an unauthorised and/or dangerous object refuses to part with it, access will be refused without refund of the ticket.
