Smart ways to save money at the Bayimba International festival.
- Don’t drink beer. There will be lots of water and other juices that are sweeter than and cheaper than beer. Go for those instead.
- Don’t be so in a rush to pay for silent disco or other options that come at an extra cost, look out for free services. The best things in life are free, so go dance and have fun for free, even if it doesn’t include Silent Disco.
- Don’t come clad in the most expensive clothes. No one will be looking out for the best dressed people. This is a festival, expect to get dirty (you wouldn’t want to get dirty in your expensive clothes)
- Volunteer while you are at the event. You may be rewarded.
