The tickets for the Ultra Music Festival Europe can be purchased depending on the day of admission and the services you want. Inside the enclosure, you will find security and cleaning service, and very different gastronomical options that go from fast food, drinks, and fruits, to dishes of Croatian and international origin.

Remember that for this festival, only those over 18 years of age are allowed to enter for security reasons. Those who are 16 or 17 years old must attend with an adult and it must be before 9 pm.
