Earlier this year, the Lake Eden Arts Festival announced that it would release the entire run of tickets for the fest, which runs from Friday, May 9 to Sunday, May 11, through online sales. The festival has traditionally made tickets available at the gate, allowing less-prepared fest-goers to pop by on the day of their choice and have a fair chance of getting in. This year’s deadline for ticket sales was originally targeted for May 7, but the online option proved to be far more enticing that many had expected, and tickets officially sold out earlier today.
Interestingly, a quick search of ticket reseller outlets revealed no available passes for the fest, implying that the vast majority of people who bought tickets fully intend on using them — hardly a surprise, perhaps, given the devoted nature of many LEAF-goers.
