    Should be amazing. Since you went last year, quick question: I’ve got to wait til next month to get ticket (unless I can sort a press pass) and flights and shit, does it sell out fast or at all?

    Last two year’s I’ve been there it hasn’t sold out at all. They raise the price of the tickets as the event gets closer, roughly €15 – €20 a month so by waiting you won’t suffer too much!
