This is the webpage of La Tomatina from the Ayuntamiento:

In 2013 the Ayuntamiento decided that there were too many people in the previous year had participated (about 50,000), which posed a security risk for all. So the Ayuntamiento announced that only about 25,000 people would be allowed to participate in 2013 and future years. No reservation system has been announced yet and one should check the web page later in the year for this.

UPDATE JUNE 2013 - The Town Hall of Buñol finally decided on limiting the fight to 20,000 broken down as follows, 5,000 for locals of the town of Buñol and 17,000 for foreigners. Entry will be taxed at 10€ per person. Booking must be made online at their site and you must print a "budget airline" style ticket and take it to Buñol with your passport on the morning to exchange for a wristband. There are some organised trips to La Tomatina, offer a day trip, their eighth, which includes the entry to the fight (with wristband before arrival) Showers, a swim, Paella lunch and booze, tee-shirt and goggles for the price of 85€ per person.
