Evening tickets are great to get a taste of re:publica 2020 and MEDIA CONVENTION Berlin! Experience the evening and party programme with concerts, events and keynotes! Admission for evening tickets is at 6pm.
Evening tickets are available during presale as well as at the box office on site.
Please note: The evening and party programme is fully included in regular tickets, of course.
pre:publica takes place on "Day 0" one day before the grand opening.
Our accreditation desks and the courtyard of STATION Berlin will be accessible from 4pm until 9pm (partners from noon). It's the perfect opportunity to get your wrist band early before the big run on the first day, meet old acquaintances and see new faces. Grab a drink at the bar and get in the mood for the upcoming days!
No, our volunteers will be given a ticket to re:publica as a thank you for helping out (among other things). Registration for volunteers starts in spring.
We try to implement as much content as possible in English to enable an International audience to attend and participate at re:publica. To have a rough idea of how many sessions and content will be in English: It was about 35% in 2019, in 2018 40% and in 2017 even 50% of all sessions were presented in English - plus numerous workshops, concerts and installation art. We aim to raise that percentage for this year's edition.
We offer simultaneous translations for stage 1 and stage 2 — that's our biggest stages — for all sessions that are being held in German and English.
This means: If a session on stage 1 is held in German there will be a live translation available in English (via headphones). Also, if a session is held in English we have live translators for German as well.
We will mark the language that will be used, as well, if there is a live translation in our final programme schedule, which will be available about 8 weeks before the event.

We originally introduced Early Bird Tickets as “Blogger Tickets” and we still see them as such.
"Blogger Tickets" were intended as a “Thank You!” to our community that made re:publica what it is today. This is why we kindly ask companies and those who don’t necessarily ‘need’ to purchase tickets at reduced prices to choose regular priced tickets instead. Thank you!

No worries, besides buying an Early Bird Ticket you have two options for attending re:publica—and they are both free!
▸ Become a Helping Hand
Before, during and after re:publica we rely on the support from volunteers. As a volunteer you will receive a Three-Day-Ticket in exchange for 8 hours of your help, including catering during your shift. Accreditation of Helping Hands will begin sometime around
February later in 2020. Until then feel free to join our “Volunteer” Facebook group.
▸ Become a speaker
Our Call for Participation started on 15 October 2020. Use the opportunity to submit a talk, a workshop, a discussion panel or another form of action and thus apply to become a part of the re:publica 2020 programme.
Too late for an Early Bird Ticket? Check Twitter and/or Facebook  for posts of people offering their tickets to be resold at a fair price. Good luck!
(re:publica and republica GmbH are not responsible for privately resold tickets and/or the process of reselling.)
Until today we have never had to reject anyone who has applied to be a re:publica volunteer. However, if more volunteers apply than we actually need, we may have to reject a few applicants. If you do not want to run that risk, purchase a ticket now (and pass it on or resell it later).
Please note that we will not cover any cancellation fees should you be unable to sell your purchased ticket.
Children up to and including 15 years of age can enter free of charge. We may ask for a photo ID at the entry or accreditation desk. At re:publica 2020 we again plan to expand our offerings for parents and young children (e.g. quiet area, children's playground).
Please note that we recommend younger children to be accompanied by an adult at all times. See also "Can I bring an accompanying person to re:publica?".
Of course! The easiest way is buying a regular ticket for your companion.
But there are other options as well:
- Assistants for people with disabilities
re:publica wishes to be accessible for all people, which is why we make an effort to make re:publica as accessible as possible, with low barriers, offering assistance wherever we can. Individuals with disabilities may bring an accompanying person to re:publica. An accompanying person must not necessarily be specified in your ID. Please contact us in advance via ticket (at) re-publica.com stating your ticket number and a brief explanation or evidence of your accompanying person in your ID. Please contact us as soon as possible!
If you bring your child to re:publica it may be possible to receive a special ticket for childcare helpers (e.g. grandparents, parents, close friends). Please contact us via ticket (at) re-publica.com no later than
April 24thJuly 27th 2020.
- Other accompanying persons
At re:publica all participants should feel comfortable and safe at all times. If you need an accompanying person or accompanying animal, please contact us via ticket (at) re-publica.com as soon as possible!
Admission for accompanying persons can only be granted with a written confirmation from us. Please make sure to contact us early.
Yes! We assume that re:publica 2020, like its predecessors, will again qualify for educational leave in Brandenburg, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Rheinland-Pfalz, Saarland, Berlin and Hamburg. Please read our how-to guide on last year's website.
We are constantly checking whether it's possible to add more federal states to our list. Unfortunately, since educational leave is a state matter, the procedures and requirements differ considerably from state to state.
We received over 1,100 submissions last year and our Programme Team had to reject quite a few. See the "Call for Participation" FAQ for more information.
No, unfortunately not. But you can resell and transfer your Early Bird Ticket at a later date to someone else, no problem. See "How do I transfer my ticket to another person?" for more.
The courtyard of STATION Berlin is only open to the public on day "0"—the "pre:publica". For all other days a regular ticket or an evening ticket is needed to enter.
