Apologies for the weird formatting - copied the bit in speech bubbles from TM and seems on the blink... but I digress...

There's the VIP and the normal ticket and that's it.

Yo are probably referring to the extra cost of delivering the ticket outside the peninsula (Spain/Andorra/Portugal).

On the Ticketmaster Spain website was listings for "Entrada Día 13 + envío pulsera peninsula" and "Entrada Día 13 + envío pulsera fuera peninsula", and I was just curious why the second of those is an extra 6 Euros.

It probably does indeed make sense that the phrase after the ticket name is in reference to shipping costs to get it from Spain to the UK, but I was just curious why one had an extra fee on top.

The extra fee is delivery 'feura peninsula' - outside peninsula

Looking for some quick advice. Got some decent deals for hotels at the moment, there's 2 in tetuan, 1 in carabanchel and one in the centre. I imagine transport in the centre will be fine but what about Tetuan and Carabanchel? For getting to and from the festival and also into the centre of town? Will there be night buses that run to either of these locations? Either by Mad Cool or just general public transport. 

Thanks in advance

Google maps will tell you nightbus routes, or you can look them up, they are N1-N27. Last year Mad Cool only put on a bus back to the city centre, so I am imagining it will be the same this year. Go for the city centre if possible as it will make your journey much easier.

That's great. Thanks

Avoid Carabanchel, its the complete opposite side of the city. 

I'm staying near the Bernabeu, which is technically in Tetuan I believe. Imagine transport back will be absolutely fine, just might have to wait a bit.

Hi everyone..newbie here..i have emailed Mad Cool to ask if tickets bought on twickets would be ok for entry as the tickets some friends got from festickets are personalised but had no reply. I couldnt get the time off work back in december when they got theirs but that has changed so just looking to see if its possible to go now. Also does anyone know if there was a limited late release of weekend tickets last year? Thanks in advance and enjoy..such a great lineup!

When you go only 1 day the price difference is not that big so maybe more people buy the VIP tickets when they go only 1 day. Also there is no real info how many 1 day VIP tickets are available, is there?

Buses from ALSA or the train if you buy a cheap ticket in advance. Maybe have a look at blabla car too if that would be an option for you

Alsa Buses are around 20-30 Euros but it takes 7--8 hours depending on traffic.

Renfe Trains are 60-100 Euros depending on the date and time but it takes 2h45m

Flight by Vueling are 40-100 Euros depending on the date and time with extra luggage and it takes 1h25m but with security and travel time to/from airports, it will take longer than the train.

I will be travelling from Barcelona as well and I am thinking of taking the train but it totally depends on what date and time you are planning to travel
