Has my booked concert been cancelled or postponed?

We will inform you about cancellations, postponements and changes to events here on our website.

If your event has been cancelled, you can return the tickets to the advance booking office where you purchased them. The purchase price of the tickets will then be refunded to you.

If the event has been postponed or rescheduled, your tickets will generally remain valid. In this case, you will receive detailed information on the respective concert page.

Where is the best place to park?

There are limited parking facilities near the Citadel. We recommend travelling by public transport if you can do without a car. Preferably take the U7 underground line to the Zitadelle stop.

Can I buy a ticket for the whole season?

Unfortunately not. There is no pass or ticket for the entire season. The concerts take place individually and you only buy tickets for the concert you want.

Can I bring my photo/video camera?

In general, disposable, mobile phone and pocket cameras are permitted. Video and professional cameras (including SLR cameras) are not permitted.

Are there still tickets available at the box office?

Tickets are generally available at the box office, unless the concert is marked as 'sold out'. Please also note the event information on the concert pages.

Can I apply myself/my band as support?

Unfortunately no. Support band applications for a specific concert are not possible. However, you can enter yourself/your band in the Trinity Music Support-Pool. If a support band is required, we will select a suitable opener from this pool.

Is there a lost property office?

Yes, if you have lost or found something, please report it to the box office at the entrance to the Citadel. You can also call info@citadel-music-festival.de the next working day to find out whether your lost property has been handed in.
