For Java Soulnation Festival, Java Festival Production will again implement the e-ticket concept (as implemented for Java Rockin'land). Purchase of the e-ticket is done online through www.javasoulnation.com. Ticket buyers will later receive a verification code which enables them to print their own tickets (which feature barcode). Every e-ticket is equipped with a barcode, verifying the validity of the ticket. Presently, Java Festival Production is the only music/festival promoter in Indonesia implementing this method.
