Envision Festival is officially sold out
Since 2010, Envision has been one of the most anticipated events of the year: The massive festival in the Pacific town of Uvita celebrates sustainable permaculture, music, yoga and spiritual openness, attracting thousands of people.
But as of 5:40 p.m. on Tuesday, the festival hit its limit: Envision is officially sold out.
“There are no longer any general admission tickets available for Envision,” read a message on the festival’s website. “If you have not purchased your ticket at this time, please do not come to the venue as you will be turned around to find somewhere else to go.”
Popularity has long been a conundrum for festival organizers, as throngs of Costa Ricans, expats, and international travelers cram into a small patch of rain forest and beach. While a large percentage of attendees prefer to camp on the premises, area hotels struggle to accommodate the influx.
All this despite the price: Admission cost as much as $300; the least-expensive option (a ticket good only for Sunday) cost $80 and could only have been purchased if there was room available. But now that the festival has reached capacity, no such tickets will be sold.
In related news, 40,000 individual tickets for Burning Man were made available since Feb. 11 and have not yet sold out.
