Folk Marathon Pass

We ask a contribution of € 30 to cover our expenses (rent of the venue, materials, sound engineers…). In return you receive a pass that gives access to all the Folk Marathon activities during 5 days, including New Year’s Eve. Childeren up to 6 years can enter for free, children up to the age of 15 must be accompanied by an adult. We’ve reached the number of participants allowed, so all Folk Marathon Passes are sold out. Also the waiting list was getting too long so we closed it because we don’t want to give false hope.

If you only want to come to the New Year’s Eve party, you can buy a separate ticket for New Year’s Eve for € 15 on the Boombal website.

Food, drinks and accomodation are not included in the Folk Marathon Pass.

  • Passes for Folk Marathon are strictly personal. They cannot be sold by or bought from people who already have a pass but can’t make it. You can cancel your Folk Marathon Pass with refund until 28 December by sending us an email and your place goes to the next person on the waiting list.
