Yesterday, some friends and I decided that it would be good to go to Oktoberfest. So today, I am looking for tickets. the tents hold 5000 to 10000 per tent. 14 tents. September 21 through October 6. We are talking around 100000 seats (per shift..there are actually two shifts) for almost 3 weeks. Almost 2 million seats for the evening and 2 million of the day time. Sold out! Completely sold out. How can there be 4 MILLION people trying to drink beer in a tent?
