Tickets

A little ticket lore: Festival & day tickets are valid for the festival grounds and all concerts in the evening. They and the workshops make the entire festival possible.

Also this year: Support-your-Festival Ticket. You choose one of the festival tickets with the Support-your-Festival option and donate directly to the festival in addition to your entry fee. Last year, many people supported us with the ticket. A thousand thanks to all our supporters.

We are also happy about donations in general. Or do you have another idea how you can support the festival? We offer interesting sponsorship packages for companies. Write to us at sabinasounds@me.com and ask for more information.

We are often asked why you need a festival ticket if you only want to attend one workshop. The festival is a complete experience. The artists and lecturers we invite are financed from all ticket sales. Therefore, workshops can only be booked in combination with a festival ticket (day or two-day ticket).

Thank you for your understanding.

IMPORTANT information about buying tickets from third-party providers:
If you would like to use the service of Reservix or Eventim, please note that there are service fees of the third-party provider and the terms and conditions of the respective company apply. VIAGOGO is a platform for private sellers who sell their tickets there. The prices there do not correspond to our prices. Often they advertise that the tickets are sold out. Please always call the ufaFabrik presale first and ask for confirmation.

In general, a personal call is worthwhile. There you will be advised individually. Either order via the reservation list here or call us at 030/755030.
