it Is an ideological principle that the tickets must be paid for by the majority?

Why follow In the not just the demand and put the price up to 5,000 dollars or more?

- We have no investors, we must earn money for. As long as we can do what we want to do, so we are well satisfied. It all needs to hang together. This year we have been given the opportunity to close a little more people in, and it's a better way to satisfy a little more guests. We've got an expensive ticket in advance.

- I can not promise that the ticket price is being held at exactly the same forever and ever. It is not an end in itself. And I think even easily, we could sell our tickets for a higher price, but it is not this that is the important thing for us. The most important thing is that we can create exactly the festival we would like.
