In just a matter of days the ticketing system for René Redzepi's upcoming MAD Symposium will be live. Beginning April 7th, those interested in attending the event dubbed as MAD4 will be able to sign up for tickets using a special website.
Unlike previous years when tickets were first come first served, event organizers have opted for a reservation-like system where people sign up for a spot and are later notified if they made the cut. The change was made "to ensure that as many cooks, farmers, writers, front-of-house and other members of the restaurant trade have a chance to join the audience this August," according to the MADFeed.
To snag tickets, potential attendees should sign up here when the ticketing system goes live at noon on April 7th. Those interested have until May 20th to sign up. Those chosen will be notified on May 26th.
The MAD Symposium was founded by René Redzepi in 2010. The chef rose to worldwide fame when his restaurant Noma topped the World's 50 Best Restaurants list three consecutive time. It now ranks second on the prestigious list which is sponsored by S.Pellegrino and Acqua Panna.
Now a three-Michelin-star restaurant, Noma has changed, but not necessarily on the plate. According to Kenneth Foong, it's all about the way the team works, which is closer to a tech company than a traditional restaurant. Read our exclusive interview with Noma's head chef.
