Tickets for the Bahrain Summer Festival 2010 are now available at six Zain outlets located across the country.
They were due to be available from June 15, but due to technical difficulties there was a slight delay, organisers said yesterday.

They are also available from Zain outlets daily, except Fridays in Riffa Bukhawara and Isa Town Mall from 9am to 9pm as well as Manama from 9am to 8pm.
