    • I don’t understand the difference between the price levels, what do the different numbers mean?

      The different price levels are based on the time someone buys the ticket. People who get the ticket in fall a year before the event pay much less than people who decide to come to the festival a couple of months or weeks before. The later it gets, the more expensive is the ticket. The benefits are the same!

    • Can I give my ticket to anybody else?

      Yes, but all tickets except the extra tickets Rent-a-tent or Drinks @ Camping A are personalized and have to be changed in case you give it to someone else. These two categories show the name of the ticket buyer only. People holding a free- or guestlist ticket can’t give this ticket to another person. The ticket is unsaleable and the name can’t be changed.

Please send an email to team@seayou-festival.de with a scan of your severely handicapped pass. Arriving at the festival you have to go to the guestlist showing your ID, your severely handicapped pass and your own ticket. After-wards your escort will get a wristband.

      Then we talk about an act of nature beyond control. The festival takes generally part come rain or shine as long as the promotor can take the responsibility for it. In case there are any risks for someone’s body or health foreseeable the event will immediately not be continued.

    • What happens if…?

      … I damage something?
      Every guest who breaks something at the festival venue or campground is liable for it.

      … I lost something?
      If you lost something you can ask for it at entrance which means, that this is also the place you can turn something in in case you found something. If your lost item is still not there you can write an email to team@seayou-festival.de after the festival.

      … I got robbed or something got stolen?
      Every guest is responsible for his or her own belongings. We suggest leaving all valuables that are not desperately needed at home or at least in your car.
       
      … something happens to me?
      Entering the festival venue and especially taking a bath in the lake is on your own risk.
      The promotor’s contractual and legal liability for its own and other people’s actions is restricted to an act of gross negligence. Of course there is a first aid team present.

In case your vehicle can host only three people, you have to buy two regular camping tickets for your other friends or buy a ticket for an extra vehicle. Please make sure that everybody has its own ticket to enter the festival area. The caravan ticket is only valid with a ticket for the festival, no matter which category. If you don’t have a festival ticket, it can’t be purchased at the box office in case it is already sold out, which makes your camping ticket invalid (no refund).

    • Can we reserve an area for our friends who will arrive later?

      Whoever wants to camp together should arrive together and set up the tents next to each other.

Watch out, at Camping A: ask your friends if they are located at A1 or A2.

    • I can't go to the Sea You Festival in 2021, what should I do with my ticket?

      In this case you have the choice between the "voucher solution" OR
      reimbursement. You can get all the information at: https://www.seayou-festival.de/ticketabwicklung

    • What does the voucher rule mean for canceled events?

      Organizers are entitled to hand out only vouchers instead of the reimbursement of the admission price for events that have had to or have to be canceled due to the pandemic. Further information on the voucher solution for the entire cultural sector, which has been approved by the federal government, can be found at:
      https://www.bundesregierung.de/breg-de/aktuelles/gutscheinloesungkulturbranche-1740010
      With the voucher solution you support us in these economically difficult times. You are ensuring that we are given the financial scope we need to continue after the coronavirus crisis. With the voucher you can wait and see how the situation will develop within the next weeks and months, and buy a new ticket later if necessary. You are also more flexible and have the opportunity to buy other products. If you don't redeem the vouchers, you can get your money back after December 31st, 2021.

    • What can I do with the voucher?

      The voucher can be redeemed for an event by the same organizer, either for the replacement event or the same event in the next year, but also for another event, insofar as the organizer offers other events. After the Sea You 2021 has expired, you can also purchase a ticket for 2022 with your voucher code, or get the refund after December 31st, 2021.

    • Are there any costs for exchanging tickets or vouchers?

      No, there are no additional costs for you.

      https://consumer.paylogic.nl/request-order-access/

    • Can I exchange or refund parts of an order, or does the order need to be processed as a whole?
    • When will I receive my tickets (after exchanging this year’s tickets for the event in 2021)?

      Your new tickets will be sent automatically by email after the exchange deadline from Paylogic. This will be after July 20th, 2020.
      If you don’t want to wait you can already download the 2021 ticket yourself by going to "Download tickets" in your order confirmation.

    • Is it possible to switch tickets that havent’t been personalized yet?

      Orders that have not yet been personalized can also be exchanged. In this case, you will receive a new personalization link, which you can use to complete the personalization until the event.

    • Do I have to redeem the voucher or does it expire?

      The voucher code can be redeemed until December 31st, 2021. After this date the buyer will get his money back if he has not redeemed the voucher. To do this, send the unredeemed voucher code with your bank details / account details to: refund@seayou-festival.de

    • Why was the voucher solution developed?

      Many organizers and club operators currently have no income. If they had to reimburse the entrance fees for all that quickly canceled events, many of them would be worried about their existence. A voucher solution gives them more liquidity and scope and is therefore a great help for the event industry. By picking this alternative you make sure that many great festivals and events can take part in the future.

    • Are the interests of consumers protected?

      A wave of bankruptcies within the event industry and cultural landscape would mean that claims for reimbursement could no longer be made.

    • The voucher does not bring me anything, I urgently need the money.

      Then select the "refund" button. All information can be found at:
      https://www.seayou-festival.de/ticket-processing/refund/index_eng.html

      The advance booking fee is not refunded, only the pure ticket price.
      Additionally a flat rate of € 8 applies to manual processing (per refund process / remittance).

      Please understand that this process can and will take four to six weeks before you can expect on the money.

      You have the option to have your ticket refunded until July 20th, 2020.

    • Are tickets from other providers or pre sale shops refunded?
