Can I also buy a ticket for one specific concert?
No. Gaudeamus Festival is a festival for discovering new things and going on adventures, which is why we’ve chosen to sell only day tickets or all-acces festival passes, so every visitor sees more than one concert.

Can I visit all concerts with my day ticket or passe-partout?
Yes. However, it can happen that some concerts are full. There are always plenty of other concerts that you can go to in that case. But if you would like to see a specific concert, make sure you are on time at the hall (15 minutes before the start of the concert).
