Why a wristband?
The wristband allows the organisers 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. This festival is yours and for 20 years Sappho Women has run it as a non-profit organisation. 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 our performances, bring international DJs and organise many other 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:
Please check the events programme calendar to see which events are scheduled during the week(s) that you will be here. Please also read our 2021 Festival Coronavirus Update so you are fully informed about the adjustments we need to make for this summer’s festival.
What are the ticket prices if I don’t buy one?
In 2021 our funding model is continuing to change as the legal requirement of doing business in Greece get tighter. Also, due to the current Covid restrictions on certain events we may not be able to offer access tickets at the venue itself. Visitors without a wristband may unfortunately not be able to gain access to our venue so we recommend that you purchase yours in advance this summer.
What if I am only coming for a week?
We’re delighted to offer three separate wristbands. One for Week 1 (valid between 11/09 – 17/09/2021, inclusive), one for Week 2 (valid between 18/09 – 24/09/2021, inclusive), and one wristband for both Week 1 & 2 (valid for the entire festival between 11/09 – 24/09/2021, inclusive).
Please note that the wristbands will be colour 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 residents and seasonal workers in Skala Eressos are eligible for a discounted wristband, which will be valid for the entire two weeks. 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.
I am a tour operator and I want to bulk buy wristbands?
Please contact our offices directly for a discount for a group tour.
How will I receive my wristband?
Your wristband can only be picked up on location in Skala Eressos, from the Info Spot at the local travel agency Sappho Travel, before the start of the events. Due to the type of wristbands we use (fabric with aluminium clip/ring), we are unable to send wristbands to your address. Please bring a copy of your invoice or ticket voucher with you to Skala Eressos, and with this you can pick up your wristband. Your invoice and ticket voucher will be e-mailed to you the moment you have successfully completed the checkout procedure on our website.
