=  ACCESS TO THE ENTIRE PROGRAM (with reservation only)


  1. Choose a pass
  2. Select the shows
  3. Pay  

* Once you select the shows you want to attend and pay the pass, you cannot change your reservation. That means that if you change your mind and want to see more shows, you need to buy another pass or a single ticket at the box office. 

*The ticket for the closing party is sold separately. Presales online or at the door.

* At the ticket office, you can only buy a single ticket for one show (7/12€). Passes are sold online only. 

* If a show is sold out (very likely!), a waiting list will open 1h before the show. 

* From 65€ pass onwards, you receive a free Bâtard T-Shirt, designed by the artist Andrea Zavala Folache. 

This year, we continue to use a pay what you want or can system. We offer several passes with different prices because we recognize that everyone’s financial reality is specific and different. Every pass gives you access to all of the festival’s activities but only on reservation. When buying the pass, you can reserve a seat for the number of shows you want to attend. 

When choosing a pass, please consider the following guidelines: 

  • Choose the price of the pass based on the number of activities you plan to attend.
  • Consider your level of social privilege, your current economic situation, and the value and priority that culture has in your life.
  • Keep in mind that choosing a higher price contributes to a fairer ticketing system, which allows people with less financial comfort to have access to the festival for a lower price.
  • A higher price is a way to support Bâtard as a platform.
  • Bâtard does not receive enough subsidies to cover the entire cost of the festival, so we rely on ticket sales to make the festival possible.
On 4/11, you can attend the live radio version of Speak like no one in  particular by Eszter Némethi for free, by subscribing HERE.

Global Majority/
BIPOC separatist evening

The show on the first evening (15th April) is a separatistic evening for people of the global majority/BIPOC. So please only book that evening if you identify with those terms. The show on the 16th of April is open for all. ---- We, Adam and Amina Seid Tahir, see how the terms BIPOC and people of color are less fortunate in their attempts of combating white supremacist andimperialistic ideologies, since they form in relation to whiteness (those ”not of color”) and therefore keeps whiteness as the norm. We rather use the term people of the global majority since we aren’t interested in identifying in relation to whiteness or white supremacy. ---- The term Global Majority was coined by Rosemary Campbell-Stephens. ”Global Majority refers to people who are Black, Asian, Brown, dual-heritage, indigenous to the global south, and or have been racialised as 'ethnic minorities’.” 1 This term was created for people of the global majority to not have to identify in relation to whiteness and to emphasize the fact that these groups make up the majority of the world’s population, specifically 80%. ---- The reason for choosing to use the term BIPOC despite this, is because we’re aware that the term people of the global majority hasn’t received as widespread attention yet. And since our main goal for this showing is to welcome our siblings from the global majority for a showing without the presence of a white colonial gaze, we choose to use the term that seems to be most commonly used in this festivals locality. ---- 1.
