Song and Dance Celebration Tickets Being Snapped Up Rapidly ({{commentsTotal}})


Around 7,000 tickets to this summer's 26th Song and 19th Dance Celebration were sold in the first few hours when sales opened on Saturday.

Organizers said in a press release the same day that interest this year has been far greater compared with previous years that the mass folk event has been held, adding that 76 percent of the ticket sales were via Internet.

The first festival took place in 1869 and has grown into one of the largest amateur concert events in the world, playing a part in independence movements in the last two centuries. 

The twin festival, which is held every five years, will begin on July 4.
