Back To The Island 2015

By | February 27, 2014


There have been some questions being asked about presale / the event so I thought that I’d put together a FAQ and answer things to the best of my ability!
Public on sale begins Tuesday at 10am EST 

Can the rooms sell out in presale?
As far as I know, there are no rooms blocked off for public presale so it is possible they could sell out during the presale for returning fans, though probably not likely that all room levels will sell out. The cheapest Deluxe Lagoon rooms are now marked off on Hanson.net as having been sold out.

Will the event itself sell out?
It’s really hard to say.  BTTI1 sold out so quickly they had to add an additional resort.  BTTI2 did not sell out and rooms (though more expensive ones) were available up until the event date.  BTTI3’s resort is 214 rooms compared to 210 rooms in Jamaica, but being that is a bit less expensive and easier to get to for many, as well as a new location it’s hard to judge how many will decide to book. I’d recommend book as early as you possibly can if you really want to go.

Do I need to stay extra days?
It’s up to you – but typically nothing starts on the first day (the 7th) until the concert at 9 or 10 pm.  The last day (the 11th) will just be everyone leaving.

How much free time do I have for myself?
(Times are rough estimates based on previous years schedules, subject to change)
When you arrive you have to check in to get your merch / wristband / lanyard and then nothing until the first Hanson show (9 or 10pm)
Day 2 is typically either a Zac or Isaac event, Solo Show, Main Concert (11am or 3pm, 5:30pm, 10pm)
Day 3 is the opposite Zac or Isaac event, Solo Show, Guest Concert (11am or 3pm, 5:30pm, 10pm)
Day 4 is photos with the band, Solo show, Main Concert, Afterparty  (3pm, 5:30pm, 10pm-??)
Day 5 – shuttles will leave throughout the day to the airport

Do I need a roommate right away?
No, but you will need to book the room as a single and pay the $800 down payment when you book.  Island Gigs should be able to convert your reservation from a single to a double when you have a roommate. Choosing the double room will require you to enter roommates information at the time of booking

 

Keep in mind when booking a flight to the resort – you will have to go through immigration and customs when you arrive.  This could take some time to get through the lines.

Keep in mind when booking a flight home that the afterparty could go pretty late (2am?)  In Jamaica we had to leave 5 hours early – but the airport was 1.5 hours from the resort.  In Cancun the resort is only about 20 minutes from the airport so shuttles shouldn’t have to leave as early.

If anything hasn’t been answered leave a comment.  I’ll try my best to answer.
