As is common knowledge, we have recently experienced significant changes that have had a direct impact on the costs associated with our lives, and in particular, our festival.
In our case, we are located in a beautiful natural setting in a remote area. In this type of environment, access to service providers leads to a considerable increase in costs due to transportation.
Like any company dedicated to leisure in countries with little support for this sector, such as Spain, the COVID-19 pandemic put us in a situation of existential danger. It is thanks to your support that we can manage resources to survive.
We want you to have total clarity on how we manage our income..
Therefore, we list below the main aspects that led us to make adjustments in ticket prices:
40% of our revenues go to pay taxes in Spain, one of the countries with the highest tax burden in Europe. We always stay within the legal limits and comply with our tax obligations in our country.
We pride ourselves on providing a high quality festival experience despite being a smaller event. Our production seeks to compete with much larger festivals, which implies an additional investment in production to maintain our standards and meet your expectations. Despite being a festival for 3,000 people, we offer a unique experience.
OWN SPIRIT FESTIVAL runs for a total period of 7 days, including the opening date of access to the venue. If we break down the costs, this translates to less than 30 euros per day of entertainment, which is still an exceptional value considering the experience we offer.
We maintain a firm commitment to paying fair wages to our workers, including social security and other associated taxes. Unlike some festivals that rely heavily on volunteers, we have a dedicated team of workers who ensure that everyone is adequately compensated for their effort and dedication.
Over the years, our festival has experienced steady growth and, with increasingly ambitious projects, we have increased the number of members on our team to ensure that the quality of the event continues to improve.
We would like to emphasize that the decision to adjust ticket prices was not taken lightly. Our goal has always been to provide you with an unforgettable experience, and these changes are fundamental to ensuring the sustainability and quality of our festival.
We thank you for your understanding and continued support.
We look forward to once again creating unforgettable moments at Own Spirit Festival 2024.
