Additional safety and preventative security measures are required at our concerts to ensure the safety and security of all visitors. We therefore ask for your support and understanding in the case that longer waiting times are incurred on admission as a result of increased checks and kindly ask that you ensure your early arrival at the event venue.

This helps and speeds up security check procedures. Carrying only limited possessions with you such as mobile phones, keys and wallets and/or smaller-sized make-up bags makes it easier for security staff to carry out their work.
Thank you very much in advance for your cooperation!
