Hail Friends! We are almost 5 months before the festival and now we are ready to announce the ticket prices. We worked really hard to keep the price ticket at the same level, despite the higher expenses this year. The only difference is that both days will have the same price as we believe that we will have equal line up in both days.
So ticket price for both days will be 29 euro and the limited 2 day ticket 50 EUR. We will not announce yet which band will perform each day since there are 2-3 bands yet to be confirmed.
