The presale starts: Tickets for the at.tension#9 will go on sale on April 10, May 10 and August 10 2022!

After at.tension#8 in 2019 and the small corona-related interim format be.tween in 2021, we are eager to finally get going again in our usual size. The ninth edition of at.tension will take place from September 8 - 11, 2022 on the Kulturkosmos site in Lärz.

On April 10, May 10 and August 10, 2022 you can buy tickets (without a raffle!). For the first time we will offer a range of ticket prices: 110,-€* / 150,-€ / 190,-€.

The at.tension is based to a large extent on voluntary work, which we never could match in money. In order to pay a symbolik thank you to all 1400 volunteers, this year there will be a daily compensation of 20,-€ per day for all volunteers who do not support us as Supporters. These additional costs are the reason for the increase in the ticket price, in addition to the consierable increase of general costs.

In addition to the many volunteers, the at.tension festival is only possible thanks to the financing from Kulturkosmos Müritz e.V., which has supported the festival in recent editions with approx. 380.000,-€ per edition. Since we at at.tension do without public funding as far as possible and thus retain the greatest possible freedom in programming and structure, the financing of the festival is fundamentally based on ticket revenue and the contribution from Kulturkosmos.

To remain within this contribution, an adult ticket must cost 150,-€ in 2022. This results in the price of the Regular Ticket of 150,-€. Since the price jump compared to the last edition in 2019 will not be manageable for many, we offer the Minimal Ticket at 110,-€. It would unfortunately be impossible to make the festival happen if everyone were to pay this ticket price. Therefore, we are forced to set a limit of 2.000 tickets in this category, distributed over the presale rounds.

Those who would like to participate in the cultural work of Kulturkosmos and thus co-finance the Minimal Ticket can do so by purchasing the Solidarity Ticket for 190,- €. This is how much a ticket would have to cost if Kulturkosmos (in addition to the infrastructure provided and the many voluntary services) were to give no financial contribution at all.

It is up to you to decide which ticket is the most suitable. Proof of a reduction or similar is not necessary.

There are also a few changes to the children's tickets this year: In order to provide the infrastructure for the smallest children, a Toddler Ticket for 0-5 year olds will cost 20,-€. The Kid’s Ticket for all 6 - 16 year olds will cost 50,-€ this year, and in this way co-finance the varied children's programme with theatre, music and a Kids Space. Everyone over the age of 16 needs an adult ticket and thus also has access to the visitor limited shows.

You will find the exact details about the ticket sales on this site in good time before the presale starts.

We are excited to try this – for all of us new – solidarity principle of tiered pricing with you! Let's create an at.tension#9 together, the way we love it: independent, non-commercial, interdisciplinary, site-specific, international and with a variety of genres of performing arts that is incomparable!

*All prices are inclusive of VAT.
