Every piece of information at a glance


The ticket must be exchanged for a wristband on site. You can do this at the Dorfschulhaus Wabern. As a little reminder, if you bought your ticket a long time ago. This is how you get your tickets:

1. log in to your account in our ticket store.
2. open the account.
3. scroll down to orders.
4. there you can download your ticket as a PDF or display it as a mobile ticket (QR code) on your cell phone.
5. if you want, you can also send individual tickets to friends via SMS. Always check your cell phone number before you send it.


If you are a ticket owner and want to rush off on a sold-out day before the end of the festival, you can sell your wristband to interested parties from 10pm onwards in the exchange zone (and only there!) directly in front of the Gurtenbahn valley station. The price is up to the trading partners*. We only charge a fee of CHF 5.00 for the exchange of the new wristband.
