+++ Covid-19: At the moment there are no official requirements for events.+++

Frequently asked questions about your concert visit

Will there be a support act/ opening act at the concert, when does the concert end?

The organiser will be happy to answer all your questions directly about ticketing, the content of the show or the specific stage set-up (e.g. quantity and size of screens) as well as how to deal with VIPs.

You can find the contact to the organiser and further current information in our event calendar under the respective show.

Don't bring large bags and cameras!

Security check
  • For security reasons, please do not bring rucksacks or large bags (larger than A4 size). In the case of many concerts, these will be confiscated by security prior to admission and only returned after the concert.
  • Please bring your original ticket or a hard copy of your ticket with you. 
  • Please do not bring cameras to the concert. It is not permitted to take photographs or record videos during concerts. However, access security generally permits mobile phones. Some artists find the constant camera flashes very annoying and therefore prohibit photography completely.

Arrive on time and by public transport!

Signpost for the closure of the U4
  • Your admission ticket usually includes free use of the RMV Rhine-Main public transport system. The underground/tram stop "Festhalle/Messe" is directly at the Festhalle.
  • Parking spaces around the Festhalle are available in public multi-storey car parks within walking distance, but are subject to a charge. Two multi-storey car parks offer the special "concert" rate for 15 euros.
  • Are you travelling by motorhome? Due to its central location in Frankfurt, the Festhalle unfortunately does not have its own parking spaces for visitors. We therefore recommend that you find a campsite nearby and travel by public transport.

In principle, whether minors may or may not attend concerts alone is a matter for their parents to decide. The age limits imposed by Germany's Protection of Young Persons Act (Jugendschutzgesetz) on events involving dancing do not apply to concerts or other events.

Please note that the organizer or the City of Frankfurt may impose certain conditions if the event is thought to pose a threat to the physical, mental or spiritual wellbeing of children or young people. Age or time restrictions, for example, or an alcohol ban might be imposed for the concert or show in question.
