Participation fees

For participation of 8, 4 or 3 days you need to pay a participation fee, which includes for the days of participation all the morning activities (ateliers, discovery ateliers, special programmes), daily Open Singing, and free admission to all festival concerts, as well as the songbook and the guide with the festival programme.

The fee depends on the package you choose (full festival, half festival or anniversary package), your country of residence and your age, and you can get discounts if you are a direct or indirect member of the European Choral Association – Europa Cantat (ECA-EC). Check www.eca-ec.org -> Members -> Join us to get more information regarding conditions for direct membership!

The fee also applies to conductors, composers, pianists, musicians, bus drivers, and all other accompanying people as long as they wish to use any services provided by the festival (accommodation, meals, free access to the venues of the festival which are not open to the public, etc.) and thus will need a festival badge. Children under 11 (born after 05.08.2007) will not pay a participation fee if they do not participate in an atelier or special projects (E). They have to pay for their accommodation and meals.
