Cercle achieved a feat selling 24,000 tickets in no time, by means of its social media alone…

After a successful first edition in 2022, Cercle announces the return of its flagship event to the iconic National Air and Space Museum of France on May 25 and 26.

Without any marketing budget, over 100,000 people from the four corners of the globe have pre-registered to access the preview ticket sales. It took just 30 minutes for both waves of tickets to sell out after the ticketing opened. The 1-day pass was sold at 95 euros, and the 2-day pass at 190 euros.

To date, the community keeps signing up to the waiting list, hoping to see additional tickets on sale.

… and for the first time, with a line-up kept secret

Cercle breaks the rules by taking the gamble of offering its community access to the Festival, without having announced its line-up. While the initiative may appear risky, Cercle relied on the trust of its community.

This is finally the event we’ve been waiting for!“, “We can’t wait! It’s going to be incredible!“, “If you didn’t have any plans in May 2024, now you do!“.

This year, festival-goers of 73 different nationalities will party at the National Air and Space Museum of France, with over 60% of participants coming from abroad. The program will be announced in the next few weeks and promises to be full of surprises.

About the National Air and Space Museum of France:

Located at Paris-Le Bourget airport to the north-east of the capital, the National Air and Space Museum of France is one of the world’s leading aeronautical museums both in terms of its age and the richness of its collections. Founded in 1919, it boasts an exceptional historical collection covering all three areas of flight: aerostation, aviation, and space. A testament to mankind’s dream of conquering the skies, the National Air and Space Museum of France is also a site museum, set on a landmark of aviation history.

It was on this airfield that airlines launched their first flights to Brussels and London in 1919. The site also bears witness to great feats such as Charles Lindbergh’s success over the North Atlantic in 1927. Finally, in 1937, the first Paris air terminal, designed and built by the architect Labro, was built here. Today, this site is protected as a historic monument, and houses part of the museum’s collections. Visitors to the museum’s tarmac, halls, and galleries are treated to a veritable experience, as they admire over 350 aircraft, satellites, rockets, models, objets d’art, uniforms, and historical documents, telling the complete tale of the great human adventure of conquering the third dimension.
