Four LIVE player sessions run simultaneously each day, with a maximum of 12 participants in each, for your comfort. Choose in advance by clicking on the ‘RESERVE A PLACE’ button on that session’s page – if it is still available. Reservations are offered on a first-come / first-served basis so do reserve the sessions of your choice as quickly as possible, to avoid any disappointment. Of course, since each session will be recorded, you can later catch up on all player sessions so you won’t miss out!
Two LIVE workshops take place simultaneously most days. Places at these are unlimited, and they will be recorded so you can catch up on all workshops later.
Choose which available ticket suits you best. For 5-day passes, placing your order will initiate the setting up of your personal festival account in which you can reserve your place at live events, and access all concerts, talks, and later, event recordings. N.B. If you are under 18, please contact us before you purchase a ticket, as your parent or guardian will need to fill out one additional form in advance.
