Firstly thank you for purchasing a Shakefest Family Day pass for €9 or a Family Day Pass with camping for only €14.
In order for your redemption to run smoothly, we have added some answers to som FAQ’s and added a few things that you
should know about Shakefest after you have purchased your tickets.
1) Can I redeem my voucher on the day I bought the voucher?
No – either deal website does not email you your proof of purchase voucher until the day after the deal day. Once you are sent
your voucher, you can contact us to redeem if you wish.
2) Can I redeem my voucher ahead of arriving at the event?
Yes – you can email firstname.lastname@example.org and type in the security code on your voucher. This will enable us to redeem your voucher
ahead of arriving at the gate – we just find your code on our list of purchases, and tick off that you have redeemed already. This
can help a smoother arrival at the gate on the day of the event and less waiting time.
Yes – you can email email@example.com with your voucher security code so we can redeem your voucher and also state your preference of workshop(s). The exciting mix of different workshops are found on the workshop page as well as the times they are on.
Family friendly workshops are: Dance Like Michael Jackson (learn the moonwalk!), Jazz, Medieval Knight Combat Simulation workshop (props used are foam and safe to use) and Hip Hop.
Price for individual workshop is €15 for adults, €8 for children up to 13. If you state your workshop preferences in an email prior to the event, our staff will book your name in to secure your place. Once you arrive through the gates, you can proceed to the workshop registration desk to check in and pay. You will be given a token which grants you entry to your chosen workshop which must be given to the instructor.
4) If I decide to present my voucher upon arrival at the gate on the day of the event, where do we go and how long will it take?
If coming by car, drive up the avenue, and parking will be available by the entrance gate. Once parked, proceed to the ‘Groupon’ or ‘LivingSocial Customers’ desk at the entrance just before Charleville Castle at the box office where you present your paper voucher to be scanned or entered into our redemption system. Once this is done, you and your family will be given the appropriate wristbands and you can enter the event. **please note if camping, parents are allowed to bring alcohol into the event, but it must be declared at the gate before entry.
The best thing to do would be to arrive just prior to the event starting which is at 12pm to avoid congestion and longer waiting times, or redeem your voucher ahead of time so the process is quicker (see 2)
5)Where do we go once we’re inside?
You can acquire a festival programme at the entrance at the gate that will show you where everything is including camping, bbq areas, workshops and outside performances as well as washroom facilities. Any further information about schedule can be aquired on ‘Saturday Activity Schedule’ or ‘Hafla and Performances’ on our website. Information on travel tips, directions and accommodation is also located on Travel And Accommodation page.
6) Do we need to bring food?
You can if you wish, for bbq’s or camping overnight excetera, single use bbq’s MUST be used within designated bbq areas in the campsite. Dabbawala Indian Cuisine mobile unit will be on site for lunches, dinners, tea, coffee etc and also some light snacks for breakfast and will be on site until Sunday, May 27th at 3pm. They will also have burgers and chips on hand for more generic food lovers.
