Early Bird Accreditation

what does Early Bird mean?


Preceding our regular accreditation process you have the opportunity to apply for a reduced Festival accreditation. With a discount of 30% this comes down to 90 € per accreditation. There is a limited amount of early bird accreditations available that you can purchase until 31 July 2018.


Please be advised that early bird accreditations have to be paid until 15 August 2018. Each early bird accreditation is equivalent to a regular “Accreditation Festival and DOK Industry Programme” for 130 €.


The regular accreditation process (press accreditations, group accreditations etc.) will begin on 1 August 2018.
