Frequently asked questions
To move forward, always starts with good questions. But for a change, we try to not leave you here with any questions. However, this section is in a flux and constantly being updated. So just get in touch if you don’t find your question here.
Those are unfortunately currently sold out. You can join our WAITING LIST and we will let you know if we can add on-site capacities! We will have very limited ON-SITE TICKETS for the NIGHT part of the Festival (first come, first served) available from 23:00PM for the price of €90,-!
Just come by & say hi – and maybe we can get you in!
Of course you can also still get a ticket for our LIVESTREAM (including Video on demand) via our TICKET SHOP.
What do I need to bring for the check-in?
Please bring your TICKET and your ID, a FACE COVERING (FFP2 or medical mask) + proof of full Covid-19 vaccination/recovery or current negative Covid-19 test. Attending the Festival is only possible with proof of complete vaccination or recovery OR a daily negative Covid-19 test (not older than 24 hours).
Seating & Groups
At the check-in you will receive a WRIST BAND and a CINEMA TICKET with your personal seat number. Please only use your personal seat.
If you are coming with friends, make sure you all check-in together so we can book your seats next to one another.
Since the restrictions only allow a certain capacity of people at events and we’re sold out at the moment (again THANK YOU SO MUCH), we kindly ask you to let us know (give back your cinema ticket at the entrance) when you decide to leave the Festival so that people on our waiting list get a chance to join.
Masks & Hygiene Measures
Wearing a mask (FFP2 or medical mask) is mandatory anytime you’re not seated.
Surfaces of doors, door handles, handrails or other objects that are touched frequently are cleaned and disinfected several times per day. Hand disinfection is available at all times. There will be sufficient information on site to give you advice on proper hygiene and preventive measures at the festival.
Livestream / Video on demand
You can livestream and re-watch all the talks vis video on demand until the end of September.
When you booked your ticket, you received a confirmation e-mail from Xing Events with your ticket number (XXXX-YYYY-ZZZZ). This is also your personal password to enter the video player. Please check your spam folder if you don’t see it in your inbox!
Where can I sign up for workshops & side-events?
Some of our workshops & side-events have a limited capacity of participants. You need to sign up in advance to snatch one of the spots. Last minute places will be available 15 minutes before the start of the workshop at the location. You can find all the information on how to sign up at the detailed description of each workshop. Some workshops are subject to an extra fee. Please register via our ticket shop.
Are there any restrictions for international guests?
If you want to book a ticket as an international guest, please contact us in advance. We will recommend individually on how to proceed.
Information for 2020 ticketholders
Due to the developments of last year to date, the premiere of Forward Festival Berlin had to be postponed. But now we are happy to announce that we have a new date: Friday 17.09.2021 at Babylon.
All already booked tickets remain valid, you don’t have to do anything if you already have a ticket. If you rather want to swap your ticket for another (hybrid or digital) Forward Festival event this year or to re-schedule to 2022 and keep it for a Festival next year, please get in touch with us until May 31st via firstname.lastname@example.org.
I bought a ticket from a wrong ticket category or for a wrong city. What can I do?
Your ticket is transferable before validation. If you cannot make it to Forward Festival yourself, we encourage you to give/sell the ticket to another person. Make someone’s day a special one!
I'm at school or doing an apprenticeship,. Am I still eligible for a student ticket?
Yes you are! Everyone under 28 years old (on the first day of the festival) with a valid ID that proves that they’re currently enrolled in an officially recognized educational institution, can access the festival with a student ticket. If you are not sure whether your education/training is eligible, write us an email to email@example.com.
Are there volunteer opportunities at Forward Festival?
Yes, there are. Just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your contact details, CV and availability between October 22th to October 24th. We’re always looking for some extra helping hands!
