Hi guys,

I wasn't able to get a ticket yesterday, but already have flights and hotel booked. Does anyone know whether there will be tickets on sale at the door? Since this was just a "pre-sale" then it would make sense if there is actual ticket sale at the door.

If anyone knows for sure, i would be grateful for his/hers reply. I am ready to take my chances and go there in order to get a ticket, but if this an out of the question possibility, then there is no point of me going.

Thank you in advance. :)

@Eleanazz, Never been there before so this is heresy, there'll be tickets on sale at the site, a few from the organisers and also from people who won't make it for whatever reason (fell sick, friends cancelled or any of the problems that humans encounter)...saw the latter at Sensation with lots of people selling at a throwaway price.......also watch for the sale in the secondary market by tomorrowland itself....they'd said they'd offer an opportunity for people to sell tickets in the secondary market (this way you can prove authenticity of the tickets as they are bar coded...unlike the current secondary sales at exhorbitant prices and where you cannot prove authenticity)...they just didn't say when. Good luck!

@Garnier, I keep hearing that if you're not present with the person who bought tickets, and therefore the person whose name is on the tickets, even if it is an authentic ticket then you can't use it. So basically if some buys a few tickets and then resells them, those tickets become useless and those people that the tickets were sold to were essentially ripped off. Is that true? It does seem ridiculous I haven't heard of single music festival that is seriously that strict about tickets. Over here in the States the organizers don't care if you paid 300 dollars for their price for the ticket or got it off of someone for 3 grand thats your damn problem, but if you have an authentic ticket then you can get in. That's how it should be everywhere. So what do you know about that?

Also are there tickets for sale at the door? Or will Tomorrowland allow secondary websites to sell tickets? Or sell some more themselves form people who canceled or whatnot? Do you know anything about any of that?

In my post above, I meant at the site (festival grounds- during the festival). Of course there are too many people so they can't keep checking. That's just to deter you from buying tickets from the secondary market as you are likely to be ripped off. So what prevents a dishonest person from selling the same e-ticket to 10 people and ensuring he gets there before all of you on the d-day and since the ticket is bar coded, the first scan registers it as used?.....These warning messages (or rules) are just to prevent you from buying such tickets but otherwise its impossible to check all names/IDs.

Hi guys!
I've been reading some of the posts written above and I've realized that many people are looking for travel buddies and mates to have fun in the festival. Many people wanted to go to Tomorrowland but only a few were able to get their tickets, so considering that now everybody knows if they are gonna be able to go or not I'd like to create a Facebook group or something like that as a place to start meeting new people who are going to the festival and want to have fun.
I'm from Barcelona and just going with a friend of mine so I'd like to meet some people to make this experience even better!
Give your opinion about the Facebook group idea and whether you want me to create it or not.

See you!!! ;)
