TICKETING & REFUND POLICY

Due to the ongoing situation regarding international travel restrictions and other factors that may prevent you from attending the event, The BPM Festival has updated its ticketing and refund policy for those purchasing multi-day festival passes from Xtixs for The BPM Festival: Costa Rica 2021 in Tamarindo, Costa Rica from March 3-7th, 2021.

Each resale transaction is subject to Xtixs 2% transaction fee. Please note, purchasers reselling/transferring their festival pass on 3rd party resale sites (Stubhub, TicketSwap etc.) will not be valid as the new purchaser’s name must be printed on the ticket presented at the BPM box office in March.
  3. Refund​: Purchasers requesting refunds will be entitled to an 85% refund of the ticket’s face value, excluding Xtixs service charges and associated fees. Refunds will be issued and processed within 30 working days of refund requests. 15% of all multi-day festival passes face value are non-refundable.
