Ouch, no. Tickets are bound by name. So someone else is not able to use your ticket.
What about COVID?
If Boring has to be canceled due to COVID regulation you will get a refund. If Boring is postponed, your ticket will be valid for the new date. If this doesn’t work for you, you will still have the option for a refund.
Will I get a Passe Partout or something?
When arriving at De Vishal at Grote Markt in Haarlem, staff will welcome you. Once they have scanned the ticket on your phone, you will get a wristband that grants you access to all Boring venues.
What’s the minimum age?
The festival is for people 18+.
Do I need transportation between the venues?
Not really. Your feet or wheelchair will do.
Where are the venues?
All venues are within a 10-minute walk of the festival’s heart (Vishal), and within 15 minutes of each another. We’ll share a little map later.
Hmm. In the wintertime. Is it inside or outside?
And when exactly is it?
Friday, January 20 at 18:00 – 06:00 hours & Saturday, January 21, 18:00 – 06:00 hours.
So where is it again?
Boring festival takes place within these locations in Haarlem: Philharmonie, Teylers Museum, Noord- Hollands Archief, Patronaat, Frans Hals Museum Hal en Toneelschuur. The reception area and heart of the festival are at De Vishal Art Gallery in Grote Markt.
Who can I bring?
Everyone. We know this is easier said than done, and we are aware of the lack of safe places in the world for women, BIPOC, the queer community, and people with disabilities. This is why we are specifically focusing on making Boring a safe and inclusive event for all. If you are a victim of any type of harassment at our festival you will be heard and taken seriously by any member of our staff, who you can recognize at every location by our shirts. There is also an info stand at the Vishal where you can report harassment.
