hey. welcome to the forums.

:)

sonisphere is a camping festival. it's capacity is 60,000 people.

if they do not sell 60,000 camping tickets, then they will open up day ticket sales.

however: the maximum amount of people they can have is 60,000. which is why people are warning against waiting for day tickets.

hope that makes sense. any more questions, just stick them on here and we shall see what we can do.

:D
roll on madness and the offspring @ soni 2013!! =D
please use alex's fmc code 1k915233 when booking your ticket. thankies :D

kazz knows her stuff ;) ello by the way. I think there was around the 60'000 mark last year.. more than enough for a brilliant friendly yet rocking festival atmosphere :music-rockon:

nah, i'm sure it was 60,000.

thought it was 55,000 in 2009 and then increased to 60,000 in 2010. might be wrong though.

:?

it is a fantastic atmosphere. even the camping is a fun experience.

the first year, i had on my boardie tee and it was amazing the amount of people who stopped to speak. plan on doing the same this year too.

i think metal/rock fans really are the most friendly fans.

the only way they get annoyed is when people call it a metal fest :P

it's all types of rock. All Time Low aren't a metal band :lol: and neither are Skunk Anansie or Placebo

ah, i am in the opposite situation.

been to soni for the past two years, going for the third but this will be my first ever download.

:D

but yeah, soni are restricted in the amount of people they can have in the grounds which is why it is limited at 60,000. if soni becomes very very popular then it might be a case of "glastonbury status" where if you don't buy in the first hour, you don't get.

especially with it being so limited.

Lets hope it doesnt get like Glasto. Ma pals went to that this year and they had to take photos of themselves and send them to the organisers and then its like a ballot to see if you get a ticket.
