ECONOMIC FACTOR SALZBURG FESTIVAL

AN ECONOMIC MOTOR

The economy and the Salzburg Festival? This is often reduced to mere “indirect profitability” benefiting the state. However, as the world’s leading festival of music and theatre, the Salzburg Festival creates far more than mere fiscal effects – as the centre of an organically grown economic ecosystem, it fulfils many functions and affects Salzburg profoundly as a location for business and companies.

The Festival in Numbers

Salzburg Festival 2020 Modified

Instead of 200 events over the course of 44 days at 16 performance venues, there will now be 110 events over 30 days at 8 venues. We will endeavour to postpone all the productions of the centenary programme which cannot be shown in 2020 to the summer of 2021. The anniversary programme will commence with the opening of the State Exhibition at the end of July 2020 and only end next year, on 31 August 2021.

Tickets 2020

Tickets 2020

Earlier this year, the Festival was pleased to register a new record in ticket sales. 180,000tickets worth 24.5 million Euros had been sold by the beginning of March 2020. The modified programme with dates that have nearly all been changed and its reduced number of events now forces the Festival to reverse its entire ticket sales operations. The Salzburg Festival aims to make the reallocation of tickets transparent and comprehensible. Therefore, a procedure has been established, of which customers have already been informed.

General Ticket Sales Rules:

  • Absolute priority for guests who originally held tickets.
  • In principle, a limit of 2 tickets per purchaser for each staged opera or drama production.
  • General ticket sales will therefore only begin on 13 July

The Current Plan and its Phases

    1. Offering Phase from 15 June to 26 June
      Customers who had purchased tickets for the Salzburg Festival events originally
      scheduled will receive a new offer which is tailored as closely as possible to their original
      purchases and adapted to the new programme. This offer can be accepted by 26 June
      at the latest, after which it will lapse and the tickets go back on sale. Of course the
      customer’s claim for refunds for tickets already purchased which have now been
      cancelled remains unaffected if the offer is rejected.
  1. Direct Sales Phases
    Those tickets remaining after the initial offering phase will be offered for purchase in
    several steps, subject to availability:
  • Starting on 29 June: Friends & Supporters of the Salzburg Festival
  • Starting on 6 July: Regular customers who purchased tickets for cancelled performances
  • Starting on 13 July: General ticket sales for those who had not yet purchased tickets for the 2020 Salzburg Festival.

Unfortunately, advance orders cannot be accepted.
