FYER festival 2.0?
Under no circumstance! The festival is well equipped. At the sound system, as well as at the Stages no costs were saved. This does make the Vibez absolute not to a FYRE festival because the customer was not forgotten. All acts also occurred.
The Vibez Festival expected 50,000 visitors. In short, about 16,000 visitors a day. However, this was calculated with the double ticket price of 120 CHF. First, the Vibez lowered the ticket price to 60 CHF and then gave away an extremely large number of tickets.
We met no person who bought a ticket
We knew a lot of people, but nobody bought a ticket. The visitors were estimated at 3’000 to 5’000 (of several persons, also coworkers of the Vibez).
That can not work
Assuming that only about 2,000 people bought tickets (which is extremely high), they made 1/16 of the ticket revenue yesterday. The payment at the festival is cash-free and the cashless points always had huge queues, as there were only 4 counters. Our opinion was not drunk much either. Thursday was so bad that the other two days could not do it well. If so, the drinks are really expensive. 5 CHF for 3dl of Beer is more than 15 CHF per 1l beer. This is expensiver than zurich.
Emirates was excised everywhere and crossed out on every ribbon with an edding. One can therefore assume that there will be a legal complaint from them. However, we would not say that Emirates’ name was pulled in the dirt.
There were lost games. Farid Bang and Kollegah did not show up in Biel. Emirates was used without a permit. With the cashless system, all the money can not be used because there is depo and this is automatically added to the price.
In the end, but the same conclusion. This will be a huge loss.
