Tickets for the event will be distributed on a first-come, first-serve, one per-person basis, and will be distributed Wednesday morning, August 17 in Cologne, Germany.  The location for the distribution, meanwhile, is still top secret, and will be shared on Twitter, Facebook, and Snapchat on 10:00 CEST on the morning of August 17th. Of course, every ticket holder has to be over 18 years of age, and Parents with children under the age of 18 will not be allowed.
