ADMISSION & TICKETS

Tickets are only available on-line from our website through Nuticket.

Fairy Island Festival tickets are issued in electronic form as an "E-ticket". The provider does not issue any "physical tickets"
. The user can then choose to download and print the ticket, or just show the electronic ticket at the gate of the festival on their device.

Festival E-tickets are personalized and need to be registered with valid name and surname. There will be no admission without a valid ticket. Please check all your tickets on purchase, as mistakes cannot always be rectified.


You may purchase more than one ticket per transaction. You must provide the name and surname of each participant while placing an order. After successfully placing and paying for your order you will be emailed your festival ticket.

If you for some reason are prevented from coming to the festival, you can resell your ticket. But note that it is illegal to sell festival tickets at a higher price than you bought them for. If this ticket(s) is re-sold or transferred for profit or commercial gain, you risk being punished by the Faroese authorities.
If you wish to resell your ticket you have the option to transfer your ticket through your profile on Nuticket. It is not sufficient to just print your ticket and hand it over to someone else, since your name is embedded in the QR code. When you transfer your ticket to someone else through Nuticket, their name will be embedded in the QR code instead, even if your name still is written on the ticket itself. You have to deal with the money transaction yourself, this is not done through Nuticket.

Upon arrival at the festival your E-tickets will only be valid in combination with valid ID / passport. Your ID / Passport must match the name which shows when we scan the QR code. We do not accept written mandate to transfer personalized tickets.

Valid Tickets purchased for the Fairy Island Festival will be replaced at the festival entrance with a festival wristband. Only Visitors with a valid festival wristband are allowed entry and movement in the festival area. Festival wristbands may not be removed, cut, torn or damaged in any way or they cease to be valid. The festival reserves the right to request identity validation by presenting a valid ID to the festival staff upon request.
