    Default the reservable tickets

    What is "reservable tickets"?

    go2
    W: The World Pop Music Festival will be held this Saturday.
    M: Are you planning to go to the festival?
    W: Of course, I am. 20 of the worlds most famous bands will be playing.
    M: I heard my friends talking about it. So, did you get a ticket?
    W: Yes, I did. I almost didnt get it because the reservable tickets sold out almost immediately.
    M: Oh, really? Lucky you! Some of my friends are going to line up overnight to get tickets at the door.
    W: Oh, I wish them the best of luck

    Something that can be set aside for future use. I assume that a certain number of tickets were set aside for those who could buy them immediately. The rest of the tickets would be sold at the door. It would have been better to use "reserve" tickets in this text.

    Often there are "reserved" tickets to an event that are for a certain seat. Section 10, row G, seat 5.

    Other areas are "general admission" where the seats (or lawn area) are claimed by those who get to the venue eariliest on the day of the event.
