RULES AND REGULATIONS:
We kindly ask you to observe a few rules to ensure a pleasant stay for you and for all our guests:
Holders of tickets for evening concerts do not have to pay an entrance fee to the festival ground. All other visitors are charged an entrance fee of 5.00 Euro. (all-day admission wristband, which is valid through all four festival days 20.00 Euro). Children younger than twelve years have free admittance. For parents with children from the age of twelve we offer a cost-effective daily family-ticket for 18.00 Euro - regardless of how many children you bring.
In the past year, the number of children attending to the evening concerts has continuously risen. Sometimes children attend the concerts without any supervision. Due to security reasons, access can only be allowed to children from the age of 12 years on, accompanied by a parent or legal guardian and with an entrance ticket. We kindly point out to our daily free of charge children's programme and the large supporting programme, which offers each child great opportunities to enjoy the festival throughout the day. Parents are personally responsible for supervising their children.
As we have to finance all the supporting acts of the festival and still want to keep the entrance fee low, we depend on our drinks turnover. For this reason, it is not allowed to bring own beverages to the festival except for children's drinking bottles. Please dispose of your beverage bottles before entering the festival site. The security is told to search bags and rucksacks.Please help us to keep the festival site clean and the enormous costs of waste disposal as low as possible!
We also ask for your fairness towards the security staff at the entrances. They are doing a job which is not always easy. We have invited many international stars to the festival and they require high standards of security. We are therefore obliged to search bags etc. for weapons at the entrance to the circus tent. The less items you bring, the quicker you will be given admittance. Please note that recordings of any kind or taking pictures is not allowed at any time in the circus tent.
The city of Torino has given permission to extend the opening hours of our Havana Club to 4 o'clock in the morning. We kindly ask all our guests to leave quietly then. In order to make sure that everybody has a good time at the festival and feels safe, we reserve the right to deny drunken and obnoxious guests admittance to the festival ground. The festival has always been known for being a peaceful festival and we would like to keep it as such. There will be a cab stand at the main entrance of the festival. Please do not drink and drive.
