Official Statement – VB2020

Vocal Booth Weekender 2020 will be a totally different experience than any recent VBW; a small social gathering rather than a large music event.

We are fully aware that the Covid-19 pandemic is far from over and urge anyone to think twice before making any non-essential trips abroad.

We are here to help but please take time trying to find the answer yourself first.

These questions and their answers will no doubt be added to as time progresses.

We carry on until Wed 16th September 2020, with a more relaxed daytime vibe and late night action in a separate bar/club from the hotel.

A pool party on the final night will close out proceedings.

If you don’t want to miss anything you need to fly home on or after Thu 17 September.

Event Tickets are around £110.

You will deal direct with the hotels or rental agents for accommodation, different places will have different prices and terms.

We will be monitoring the number of passes sold and make announcements once they appear to be in short supply. We will NOT make false claims about selling out… if we suggest you get a pass quick, get one quick !

There will be a deadline of August 1st, after this date any passes bought will not be personalised.  Prices will also increase.

We have a very active Facebook Group where you can ask others this question.

Where do I fly to?

Alicante or Murcia.  

Alicante is 45 mins away, The NEW Murcia (RMU) airport is a now also 45 mins away.

Yes. All establishments allow you to check in anytime after 2pm through to the early hours of the morning. Sometimes your room may even be ready for you if you arrive before 2pm.

To receive your entry pass to all the parties, meet in the pool area of the Hotel Montepiedra at these times:

• Thursday: 17:00 – 21:00 hrs
• Friday: 13:00 – 21:00 hrs

If you are arriving later than these times, don’t panic. Send us a message and we will arrange for you to collect your passes direct from the Montepiedra receptionist.

YOU MUST present your ticket.  This can be on your phone or print-out.  NOT THE EMAIL RECEIPT but the ticket itself !

We have a lot of people that decide to see what the fuss is about and come alone. They go home with a whole new bunch of friends.

We recommend you join our Facebook Group and ask if anyone is looking to share.

The Palmera Hotel is highly recommended if you want to share with people you do not know as it provides plenty of privacy with separate bedrooms and large living area.

Check the bookings page, alternatives are available.

Please join the mailing list for any important updates as rooms become scarce.

Yes.

The daytime parties are for everyone, the area is perfect for families to come and you could take it in turn to babysit one of the nights.  

Children under 16 will not require passes.  Children are not allowed as guests in the Montepiedra hotel !!

We do try to accommodate any DJs within The Family and find them a slot somewhere but only after you have been to see what the event is all about.

Once the DJs are confirmed we hope nothing changes, although sometimes situations force DJs to change their plans.

Experience tells us that this can even be at the last minute. The event has also been known to be that good, the DJs party so hard they occasionally forget they are meant to be playing and miss their set time.

Joking aside, we are also at the mercy of the airline companies. Sometimes strike action or serious delays may mean DJs cannot reach us on time, if at all. 

The ticket price is for the main weekend, Fri, Saturday & Sunday poolside and club entry.

Everything else is an added bonus for anyone with a ticket, so no, there are no discounts and day/night only passes are only available via special request through existing Family Members.

We spend your money on making the party the best it can possibly be, as the event draws near there simply is no money to refund !

The passes are strictly non-transferable between persons.

You cannot purchase passes without accepting these terms and conditions.

Please do not ask for a refund as a refusal often offends !
