Hi Admin team,
I thought you announced that the 5 day tickets were sold out as of Friday but the ticket forum is not open for re-selling. I have had to move back to the USA and cannot attend the festival and want to re-sell my tickets. Please assist.

Thanks,
JH

BF do not open the sales sub-forum until ALL tickets are sold. This means that even if the ticket type that you are attempting to sell has sold out, the availability of other types of tickets is seen as grounds for keeping the forum closed.

I think the wording of the 'Selling and Buying tickets' section can be a little misleading.

"We open this category once Bluesfest has sold out of day, 3 day or season ticket you wish to sell - should Bluesfest not sell out - then this category will remain locked "

It tends to imply that selling out of any one of the 3 ticket types would open that particular one for resale.
If "or" was replaced by "and" then there would be less confusion.

What do you mean by "last year then 2013 "
2013 is last year.
The reselling facility was operating in 2011 when the festival sold out.
In 2013 spammers named lkewalmatha and yrmcoysalv found the secret code and opened it up illegally.

"An artist never really chooses when and where they will play.It is for promoters to make offers.It comes down as to whether tours are financially viable." Quote John Mayall.
