World Music and Dance Festiva 2008 Hakodate, JAPAN


WMDF Sponsor Pass

WMDF Sponsor Pass

Those who wish to support our festival can do so by purchasing a "Sponsor Pass". This pass (1,000yen) gives free admission to the showpiece final concert, but more importantly allows townspeople to show their support for our cause, and to publicise our event.

We especially encourage Sponsor Pass holders to wear their pass during their daily lives in the weeks leading up to the event. A thousand people in Hakodate each day wearing this pass will surely be noticed! We also hope that Sponsor Pass holders will make new friends by greeting each other. How about taking this chance to show your support, and to join and expand our community?

You may even earn yourself a chance to talk with a star of the Festival: the visiting artists will be encouraged to acknowledge wearers of the Sponsor Pass with a special greeting if they see them around town, for instance during their sightseeing.

Let's welcome the many artists from overseas together!

In addition to being a visible sign of support and a communication tool, a Sponsor Pass also gives a number of further benefits.

■ Sponsor Pass Privileges

  • Free entrance to the showpiece "Sunset Performance" on Aug 24 (normal price 2,000 yen). (Note that children of under elementary school age will be admitted to this event free of charge).
  • For the duration of the "Admission Free Stage" concerts (Aug 20 - Aug 23), production of the Sponsor Pass will entitle you to group discount rates at two of Hakodate's prime tourist attractions: Hakodate Mountain Ropeway, and Goryokaku Tower.
  • At the Free Stage performaces, the first 100 people attending with a child will receive a complimentary WMDF-sponsored present.
