This year the festival has more to offer, and a wristband is an essential item to get access to the official events.
Why a wristband?
In 2017 a wristband is required. The wristband allows the organizers to tick a lot of necessary legal boxes in Greece that bypass the tight administration for handling money and issuing receipts on a daily basis. A wristband allows you to pay once, and get access to all the events at a hugely discounted rate.
This is how you will support your festival. It gives you free access to the headline events. This festival is yours and for 16 years Sappho Women has run it as a non-profit organization. We rely on volunteers and pass many income opportunities to the village and local businesses. But the financial support does come from the women visiting. The wristbands allow us to put on world class acts, bring international DJs and to organize events and parties. The wristband sales allow us to continue with this annual event. You enjoy the festival – and you contribute to its success and its continuation!
Free access to:
All official Sappho Women events that are hosted in the Open Air Cinema, These include the Opening Night Party, Closing Night Party, Live Concerts, Movie Screenings, Sappho’s Alternative Fashion Shows, Drag King Shows, Cultural, sports and fun events.
Cruises, Day Trips and Excursions
Food, drinks, groceries and purchases at participating local shops and restaurants
What are the ticket prices if I don’t buy one?
In 2017 our funding model is continuing to change as the legal requirement of doing business in Greece get tighter. Visitors without wristbands will have to purchase a ticket for all official events. This will range from 10€ – 50€.
What if I am only coming for a week?
We’re delighted to offer three separate wristbands in 2017. One for Week 1 (valid between 09/09 – 16/09/2017), one for Week 2 (valid between 16/09 – 23/09/2017), and one wristband for both Week 1 & 2, which is valid for the entire festival between 09/09 – 23/09/2017. Please note that the wristbands will be color coded, so please make sure that you purchase your wristband for the week(s) that you are here.
What if I am volunteering?
Part of the formal volunteer programme is a volunteer wristband that gives you access to events and areas. This requires you to sign up as a volunteer through our online application form and commit to set hours of working per day.
What if I live or work in Eressos?
Local or seasonal workers are eligible for a discount to purchase a wristband at the reduced price of 25 euro. This wristband is valid for the entire festival between 09/09 – 23/09/2017. Please make an application at the Sappho Women office in person.
What if I am presenting a workshop or talk?
You will be given a discounted rate for a wristband. Please apply for that when you apply for a workshop space.
