  • How does the festival work?  [here you can find an overview schedule].
    A bit like any other festival: you buy a ticket, enter the festival grounds and choose what your schedule is throughout the evening. It's not one stage, but four stages scattered around the site. Four groups perform there two by two, each on their own stage/location. They sing four 20-minute concerts. Between each concert, each group has a 30-minute break. That gives you a chance to see another group at work.
    Once you get there, it's really quite simple. We give you a floor plan of the site which also shows the order of the concerts. Moreover, there are many helpers walking around who will be happy to show you the way if you should have any problems.
