Why aren't there more single-day passes?
Beltania is a festival designed to be experienced as a multi-day event. Being there together over several days helps to create a sense of community and build connections, which is something Beltania is known for. Having lots of cars driving around all the time, with people coming and going, gives more of a spectator feel than what we are trying to achieve. In addition to being a music fest it is also a spiritual retreat; and having lots of people stopping by to just check us out for a few hours doesn't really fit with the spiritual retreat concept.
It's also a logistical issue; as a volunteer-run organization, we simply don't have the staff or resources to handle the paperwork and accounting issues that come with different types of passes for different days. If we were to have daypasses, we'd need another 20 volunteers willing to give up their festival experience to staff the gate, attend parking lots, and security to enforce ticket expiration times all day every day. Lastly, in last year's guest satisfaction survey, over 90% of respondents said they preferred to come for the entire festival. However - if you think this is really important offer more day passes, please assemble and train a team of 20 people willing to work 8 hours per day for free every day of the festival, before January deadline, and we'll do it!
That being said, anyone with a full admission pass can stay as long or short a time as they wish. A Full or Saturday-Day-Only admission pass is required to enter the festival, regardless of how long you choose to stay and whether you are commuting, camping off-site, or camping at Beltania. Camping is included with Full Admission at no extra charge, so there is no discount for non-campers.
