How to Book 


If the phrase “General Admission” (GA) is used, specific seats are not allocated. Tickets are issued according to the venue capacity and patrons select their own seats after admission to the venue. Seating is on a ‘first come, first served’ basis so we recommend you arrive early.


If the phrase “GA Booth” is used, this refers to a booth seat. Booths are located around the inside of the Spiegeltent. There is a maximum of 8 people per booth. All other general admission rules apply, as above.
