Holi One festival tickets go on sale

February 17, 2014

Tickets for the vivaciously messy 2014 Holi One festival are now on sale. Organizers announced Monday that passes are available for ₡23,000 ($46) at www.specialticket.com.

The party will go down March 29 at the Pedregal Events Center in San Antonio de Belén, a suburb northwest of the capital. At Holi One, thousands of attendees dressed in white will toss handfuls of colored powder and paint into the air while jamming to local and international electronica and dance music groups. The event lasts 12 hours, and attendees must be 18 or older.

Organizers said the musical lineup for Holi One will be announced next week.

Inspired by India’s spiritual Holi Festival, this less sacred version took place for the first time in Costa Rica last August. A similar event called Life in Color occurred last month, as the combination of dye and dancing becomes the latest fad for fiesta-goers.
