General Ticket Information

As long as availability lasts, tickets can be booked up to and during the festival. All purchased tickets – including print@home – must be exchanged for a wristband before visiting the first festival event. Tickets can be exchanged for wristbands only at the ticket desks at Blohm+Voss and Elbphilharmonie. Wristbands are non-transferable.  A wristband is required to access festival locations. Information on the access of Elbphilharmonie can be found here.

One return journey to the festival on public transport (total HVV network / including express and night buses / until the close of HVV services on the festival day) is included for each day listed on the ticket/wristband.

In venues that have seating, open seating applies and seating is not guaranteed. Once a venue reaches maximum capacity, no further guests will be admitted. Admission to a venue is not guaranteed. Festival locations open at least 30 minutes before concerts begin.

The organiser reserves the right to make changes to the above-mentioned provisions.

Please understand that outside of the ticket desk opening hours there is no way to exchange tickets for wristbands and therefore admission to clubs will not be possible.
