Concessions and Festival Card

(1) Where reduced ticket prices are offered, concessions are granted to: severely disabled (accompanying persons are entitled to a free ticket), the unemployed, Leipzig Pass bearers, schoolchildren, interns, students and persons doing military or community service.
(2) Furthermore, you can buy a Festival Card (€ 67,00) by telephone, internet or at the ticket agencies which entitles the owner to a 25% discount on the regular price for single tickets. A combination with other concessions is not possible. The Festival Card is non-transferable and cannot be applied to guided tours and concerts not organized by Bach Archive Leipzig (No 4, 17, 28, 31, 34, 45, 49, 53, 71, 103, 108, 120, 121, 124, 139, 150).
(3) Afore mentioned concessions can only be applied if requested before the purchase of tickets. After the purchase, regular-priced tickets cannot be converted into reduced tickets even if the reason for a concession is valid.
(4) Appropriate documentation has to be shown at the concert venues without being asked. Visitors who are in unauthorized possession of concession tickets will only be admitted by festival staff after payment of the price difference.
(5) Wheelchair users are asked to book by writing directly to the Bach Archive:

Further provisions

(1) Tickets may generally not be refunded or exchanged.
(2) If a venue has to be changed, tickets retain their validity. Visitors cannot claim the right that a concert has to take place at a specific venue.
(3) Bach Festival concerts mostly take place in authentic venues. The architectural structure and the resulting performance conditions means that visibility may be limited whatever the seating category. This does not give the right of withdrawal or to price reduction.
(4) If concerts are recorded or photographed, visitors agree to being pictured (in TV, internet, printed media).
(5) General terms and conditions apply.
(6) No entry after the concert has started.
