RFM SOMNII works with different ticket outlets, all of which are duly certified. All tickets issued will be valid for RFM SOMNII 2021. If you bought a ticket for 2020, you don’t have to do absolutely anything because it will be automatically validated. 

All tickets already purchased are valid for the next edition of RFM SOMNII, with no need to make any changes.

Since RFM SOMNII was rescheduled under the terms of Decree-Law 10-I / 2020 (Portuguese law), and in accordance with paragraph 8 of its 4th article, we inform you that “Rescheduling the show does not give right to a refund of the ticket price, nor can it imply an increase in the respective cost for those who at the date of rescheduling were already its bearer”. 

The ticket, although nominative, is transferable to third parties by mere tradition and is only valid for RFM SOMNII’s 2021 edition. 

We are sorry, but it is not possible to exchange or refund the corresponding value under the terms of the law.

At the festival grounds

Yes, you can bring sunscreen. In fact, it’s a good idea, because it protects your skin! For safety reasons, only cream sunscreen is allowed, not spray.

You can swim while the event is being held. The festival has lifeguards and other maritime rescue resources at its disposal. But beware: you must obey the instructions of the lifeguards because their job is to keep you safe.

The safety plan is coordinated by the Figueira da Foz Civil Defence and involves the Municipal Fire Services, the Red Cross, the PSP Police Force and the Maritime Police.

A contingent of members of these security forces will be positioned at the accesses and entrances and inside the festival grounds.

There will also be security guards and employees inside the festival grounds, totalling more than 300 people, whose aim is to provide assistance to the spectators and ensure the well-being of all.

Offshore, there will be Navy launches and Maritime Police officers. There will be two lifeguard posts on the beach.

The RFM SOMNII safety plan includes all the hospitals located within a radius of 50 km of Figueira da Foz, which will be ready to deal with any accidents or injuries.

After entering the festival grounds, you can only leave and come back in once more on each of the two days of the festival.

Yes, you can. But you will have to present a duly certified medical declaration, and only in the quantity strictly necessary for the time you will be at the event. You may not enter the festival grounds with goods that can be sold, according to their nature or quantity.

The chief concern of the organisation is your safety. That’s why we pay a lot of attention to the use of drugs and mind-altering substances. Any illegal activity will be reported to the authorities immediately.

Yes, everybody wishing to enter the festival grounds will be inspected for safety reasons. The time this inspection will take may vary according to the number of people in the queue.

Admission will be refused to all persons who are clearly intoxicated, who appear to be mentally disturbed or who, in any way, show a tendency towards committing acts of violence, particularly people who show a violent attitude or who publicly incite hatred, violence or discrimination for reasons of age, race, gender, religion, opinion, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity or any other condition or social or personal circumstance and, in particular, anyone behaving aggressively or causing disturbances outside or at the entrance, carrying weapons or objects that could be used as weapons, wearing clothes, objects or symbols that incite violence or support ideologies or activities contrary to the fundamental rights recognised in the Constitution. Admission will also be refused to anyone presenting tickets that have been tampered with, torn or appear to be falsified. If admission is refused for any of these reasons, the ticket price will not be refunded.

After this inspection, the organisation may also eject ticket holders in the event of non-compliance with the instructions of the organisation’s employees, as well as when it can be assumed that a situation of risk or danger could occur for the actual spectator or members of the public. The person ejected will be held personally liable for any damage they may cause.

Anybody aged over 3 can attend the event, but a valid ticket must be presented, irrespective of age.

For safety reasons, we recommend that all under 18s should be accompanied by an adult.

Notices will be affixed at the entrance to the RFM SOMNII festival grounds. These inform all the participants that the event will be filmed.
