/// Tickets

Signals Festival is a non-profit event, independently-funded by Catalyst. In the spirit of supporting access to culture, we aim to keep the ticket price as low as possible. We have a subsidised ticket scheme where those paying full price support reduced price tickets for modest-income festival-goers.

General Admission

General admission tickets allow access to all live performances, DJ sets, installations, dialogues and films in all spaces.

Reduced - General Admission

Reduced price General Admission tickets are for students of all other institutions and modest income attendees. Just bring your student ID, berlinpass or equivalent to the door. 

Reduced tickets

To attend a workshop, secure your spot with an additional ticket. Note that your workshop ticket is only valid with a general admission ticket for the day of your workshop, or a weekend ticket (reduced or regular).

You can get tickets for multiple workshops with your general admission ticket.

/// Community & inclusion

Signals Festival strives to offer all our guests a welcoming and rewarding experience amongst our respectful, creative community. We won’t tolerate any form of racist or ableist behaviour, or discrimination based on gender or sexual identity. No means no. Signals Festival does not tolerate spiking, bullying, or any form of harassment; perpetrators will be escorted out on the spot and might be prosecuted. If at any time during the festival you feel uncomfortable, harassed or have witnessed unacceptable behaviour please reach out to one of our onsite Awareness Team.

Mask wearing is not mandatory (at this time) but we support measures to reduce transmission and encourage you to do so too. If you feel unwell, stay at home. Feel free to resell your ticket or pass it on to a friend if you’re unable to attend due to corona. We want to make sure all our attendees and artists can enjoy a safe event. 

We acknowledge that the Funkhaus has reduced accessibility, so we’re ready to assist anyone requesting support or information in advance. Please reach out and let us know how we can best support you and make your time at the festival fully enjoyable. 

Signals Festival is a proud signatory of the EU Keychange Pledge
