When and where will Waking Life take place?
Waking Life happens between August 17th and August 22nd 2022 in Crato, Portugal.
How will we organise the ticket sale this year?
Instead of waking up early, e-queuing, or being at the mercy of your wifi connections, everyone interested in coming to Waking Life 2022 will spin the Wheel of Fortune (technonerds, call this a randomisation algorithm). You make a profile, alone or in a group. Sign up for spinning the wheel, and everyone taking part will get a more fair chance to participate in Waking Life next summer.
I have read the entire FAQ, but I still have a question...
First read the FAQ a second time :) If you still didn’t find the answer to your question, email us at email@example.com.
How will I be kept up to date?
Log in to the Waking Life raffle platform, and check your ticket status. We update through our socials and by email in case there are important announcements. Since emails like to end up in spam folders sometimes, we advise you to note down the raffle announcement dates, and log in to the platform on those dates. Always nice to remember your friends as well :)
What are the important data?
Why is there a second raffle?
After the first raffle, some people that won will end up not purchasing their ticket. These tickets will be part of raffle two.
Do tickets have to be personalised?
Yes, all tickets have to be personalised. This means that the name on each ticket will be checked without exception, and it will not be possible to enter with a ticket under someone else’s name. The only safe platform to re-sell and buy tickets is Ticketswap.
Is it possible to adapt the name on my ticket?
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Be aware of scammers and don’t buy a ticket from someone you don’t know, unless it is sold on Ticketswap.
Can I volunteer?
You can join the team that makes Waking Life happen and apply to volunteer. Volunteers do not need to participate in the ticket raffle, but keep in mind that tickets to Waking Life are limited and volunteer positions as well. Applications will open on December 1st.
What if I lost the first raffle?
If you lost the first raffle, you will automatically take part in the second raffle.

Can I participate in this raffle as a group?

When will you announce the results of the second raffle?
On Tuesday 22 February.
What if I didn’t make it through the second raffle?
Bummer… we advise you to keep an eye out on our socials in case we decide to do a third raffle. This will only happen if there are many unpaid tickets left. Otherwise, try to purchase one via Ticketswap, or participate again for Waking Life 2023.
How much does a ticket cost in 2022?
New participants pay a participation fee of 220 euro (this amounts to 36,50 euro per festival day) plus 10 euro waste deposit, and only 3000 new tickets will be made available. Camping and parking are always included in your ticket.
Why the price hike?
Primarily because during our last editions the ticket price did not add up to the production cost of Waking Life. Then Covid happened and two years went by, which would have meant a more gradual increase in price. When calculating the ticket price for 2022 we also had to take into account rising wood, transport and rental prices (amongst others), and the crew members that work year-round or during summer to make Waking Life happen will receive a financial compensation for their work from this year onwards. Finally, we are running land regeneration and community projects, which are complementary to the wider vision of Waking Life, meaning that your contributions are directly sourcing our eco-social programmes.
The code to purchase my ticket doesn’t work. What do I do?
Please wait 30 minutes. After that, you can use your code again.
I purchased my ticket. How do I receive it?
When you completed your purchase, you will receive an email of Paylogic with your personalised ticket.
How can I sell my ticket?
You can sell your ticket on Ticketswap.
What’s the minimum age to participate in Waking Life?
The minimum age to participate in the raffle is 18 years old.
