Can you deduct the VAT since you are selling tickets within the EU?

Unfortunately, we are compelled to charge VAT on our event tickets. The explanation behind the legal framework for this is:

Under Article 53 and 54 of the VAT Directive of the European Union, the reason VAT is being charged is because B2B services in respect of admission to cultural, artistic, sporting, scientific, educational, entertainment and similar events will be taxed at the place where those events actually take place.
