The organizers later decided to introduce seated numbers for those taking up CAT-2, CAT-3, CAT-4 and CAT-5.

To control the anticipated crowd, organizers intend to limit the number of people entering the venue at a time with only 500 people allowed to enter at a time.

The policy of entrance is known as ‘First-Buy-First-Entry’, which meant each category’s first 500 ticket buyers will enter the venue first followed by the next 500 purchasers and so forth.

To facilitate this, the organizers also released a detailed layout which now includes the numbers for each zone as seen below.

CAT-5 zone remains free seating and could be your best chance to sit with your large group of friends if you are not purchase tickets at the free-standing VIP and CAT-1 zones.
