Entry is permitted for people of all ages. Still, children must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
With the support of CTT, the festival has a cashless payment system. This way, physical money will not be used for consumption in bars and restaurants.

For the refund to be made, the digital wallet must contain the account name and IBAN. Returns are free and must be requested between September 11th and 12th.
The cups are reusable, in order to promote environmental awareness and the adoption of good practices. Each glass costs €1 and can be purchased when purchasing your first drink. Anyone who has cups from previous editions can take them, meaning there is no need to purchase a new one.
