Update: Rewire 2021 is going ahead

16 Aug 2021

On 13 August the Dutch government announced an extension of most of their Covid-19 restrictions until September 20. Rewire is happy to share that within these restrictions the Rewire 2021 - offline edition, scheduled for 10, 11, 12 & 18 September, is able to go ahead as planned. Albeit with reduced capacity and a few other restrictions. Please find out more below on how to visit the festival safely.

ACCESS TO THE FESTIVAL VENUES (please read carefully)

I. Festival programme which requires a ticket

To visit the ticketed programme (taking place at PAARD, Korzo, Koninklijke Schouwburg, Theater aan het Spui, and Lutherse Kerk) you will need to exchange your e-ticket for one wristband to access all those venues. In order to receive this wristband you will need to present proof of vaccination, proof of recovery, or a negative test result (Testen voor Toegang). You can present these using the CoronaCheck app. The location to present the above and receive your wristband is PAARD (Prinsegracht 12).

Within the above mentioned venues, the audience can let go of the 1.5m social distancing, but please note all concerts are seated and all rooms have fixed seats. You are supposed to remain seated during the concert, but you are allowed to go to the bar for a drink or go to the toilet.

Please note: After the start of a concert, you will not be allowed entrance anymore. Please be on time if you wish to see a certain concert, the timetable is designed to make changing venues easily possible.
