Secret Island Nation (SIN) festival promoter Bjorn chatted to Skruff this week as he finalised preparations for the latest Berlin party at brand new Kreuzberg club S.K Robinson (October 8) and vowed that he’s capping capacity for future events.
“This year we actually sold out all 500 tickets in advance and while we didn’t turn away few additional guests who without pre-sale tickets we really want to keep numbers down in future,” he said, “Rather than growing in size we'd prefer to enrich the non-musical program and the hippiesque vision of how to make the world a better place to party.”
Revealing that he’s also in discussion about putting on events in Oslo, Copenhagen and Iceland next year, he sounded a note of caution about limiting the numbers of spin-off parties too.
“As you all know the world goes down on 21/12/2012 so SIN 2012 will be the last one,” he chuckled, “So make sure to grab one of the only 500 tickets soon, especially as half of the contingent is reserved for "veteran islanders" (though I haven't figured out a fair way yet....),” he added,
The upcoming Berlin party takes over all three floors of the brand new club with a line-up of island regulars including Dirk Sid Eno, Skrufff DJs Fidelity Kastrow and Jonty Skrufff, Seyman, German Lachs and Dirty Ragga Squad. Partygoers can also buy uber cheap SIN tickets for 2012.
“Pre-sale will start at the Reunion party, again with discounted early-bird-tickets: the first 50 will be available for 50EUR,” said Bjorn.
“Then they increase in price, with 50 more for 60, and again 70. Regular price for the remaining 350 tickets is 90 EUR.
As always, we will provide travel packages by bus or flight from Berlin, Oslo and Copenhagen/Malmö. Tickets sale outlets and online purchase information are to be found on www.secret-island.eu in the next days.”
