Covid-19 Info

1. January 2021

Following the current regulations of the official bodies, the following points must be observed at Waves Festival 2021:

Admission is only possible if you have been vaccinated or tested (2G rule).

Masks are compulsory in all indoor areas of the festival and the conference.

When exchanging tickets at the box office in the WUK or when exchanging wristbands in front of the Canisius Church, either an officially confirmed Covid 19 test with QR code or a vaccination certificate with QR code in connection with a photo ID must be presented.

Festival pass holders for all festival days who have not been vaccinated and can only show a Covid 19 test will receive a wristband for the first day and exchange tickets for the other festival days, which they can exchange for wristbands each day after showing a new valid test.

If possible, please buy tickets in advance (possible until 8 September) via our ticketing system, as the name and e-mail address of the guest must also be entered here. If you buy tickets at the box office, we have to enter this data into our system first, which may lead to longer waiting times at the ticketing desk.

Tickets are marked by name and can ONLY be transferred via the ticketing system. In such a case, log in to Universe using the link in the ticket purchase confirmation and process the guest info, which we will refer to if necessary.
