first of all thanks to so many of you for the kind support!
just to dispell some rumours:
the price spotlight sells at are official prices
. there is a standard commission included on these prices, (5 euros) - this is what the bars earn on their tickets too.
in some bars
, if you sit down and have a drink
in their establishments, they will sometimes reduce their own 5 euro commission by 1 or 2 euros in order to make the sale.
what does this mean? it means you pay 5 euros for a drink in the bar but save 1 or 2 euros on the price of a ticket (eh?). many people enjoy this as part of the whole night out - haggling with the bars and slowly crawling through town looking for the best deals. it can be a lot of fun, but you are not actually saving money that way.
PLUS, all online
tickets get GUESTLIST
entry. no bar on the island can offer that.
we are not trying to trick anyone into buying over the price. we have had several occasions this year where we have voluntarily refunded the difference after realising that the clubs were reducing their prices. e.g.
el divino have just reduced the price of Milk n 2 Sugars and Azuli from 30 EUR down to 15 EUR for all parties in August. we immediately refunded the difference for all people who had already bought tickets for these events in August. all i wish to show by this is that we play as fair as we can.
many people still prefer to buy on the island for other reasons too - they like to remain flexible and decide spontaneaously where to go; they might not want to pay with a credit card online, etc, etc.
however if you do know where you are going and you want less queuing and zero hassle about finding your tickets, then buying them online makes perfect sense
however you do it - enjoy!!
