    How do tickets work?
    Each Tremor ticket must be exchanged by an official Tremor wristband placed on your wrist by an organisation member of the ticket office.  We don’t take reservations. A daily pass is not available, nor special priced passes for groups or single tickets for specific concerts. Exchange locations and schedules in São Miguel Island will be announced soon.

    Wristband exchange:
    The wristband will grant the holder access to activities, depending on the capacity of each venue. The wristband is personal, not transferable and its use is mandatory. Each venue opens 30 minutes before. Make sure you arrive early to the most sought after concerts. 

    What is the dynamics of the festival? How long do the concerts last?
    Tremor is a festival that invites the spectator to make choices and define an artistic itinerary between the different artistic proposals and discover new artists, the island and its different hosting communities. It is impossible to see everything because a lot of concerts happen simultaneously. We discourage you to try seeing everything, so that you have a richer experience. Each venue has limited capacity and the simultaneity of concerts offers the audience always something to see. Concerts last around 45 minutes, this duration might vary depending on the artist and repertory.

    Do I need to rent a car?
    It’s up to you. The  car is the easiest means of transportation on the island. You will be freer to move around and participate in the festival’s activities happening around the island in different locations. We have a special deal with Wayzor, please chech the News tab for more info. In alternative you can use our shuttle service Carreira Tremor, public transport or car sharing.

    Is public transportation available?
    Once you land in the airport, you can hop on a taxi to your accommodation or Ponta Delgada’s downtown. Ponta Delgada downtown is serviced by a mini bus system. The island is serviced by several public transportation buses that take you to Sete Cidades, Furnas, Ferraria, Vila Franca do Campo, Nordeste, Povoação, Ribeira Grande. You can find route maps and additional public transportation information in the Tourism Office in Ponta Delgada’s main avenue, Avenida Marginal.

    Are there buses for the concerts?
    The festival’s organization will make available some transfers for concerts, if those happen outside Ponta Delgada, in other townships of island of Sao Miguel. Carreira Tremor details to be announced soon:
