TOURISTS planning to flock to the small village of Bunol for the famous Tomatina festival this summer will now need tickets to take part in the ketchup craze.
The annual festival, which takes place on August 28, has been drawing bigger and bigger crowds each year causing chaos for the authorities.
Last year more than 45,000 revellers went to the town to get pummeled with tomatoes.
In an attempt to cut down on numbers this year, authorities have introduced a ticketing system.
An entry tax of 10€ is being imposed and only 20,000 tickets issued. Just 15,000 of these will be open to the general public, with the remainder being reserved for locals.
Tickets are on sale at latomatina.info/en/buy-tickets/
