Freiburg Forró Festival 2018

We are happy to welcome you to our Freiburg Forró Festival 2018! Thank you for coming!

Buy your tickets here.

The last weeks, during our free time, we have worked hard to make the Freiburg Forró Festival 2018 again possible for you. Now it is your turn. Here are some last information for you to help us!

Announcement publication of photos and movie:

Throughout our festival we will take pictures and videos. The pictures and the produced film will be published on the internet afterwards (Youtube, Facebook, Website). But we need your personal agreement or disagreement being fotographed and filmed. Upon arrival and registration at our festival we will ask you about that. If you disagree with the publication of your photos and/or if you don´t want to be seen in the film, just let us know. You will get a special wristband. If you do not dissent at the registration, we see this as an agreement to publish photos of you and that pictures of you can appear in the movie.


Please bring dance shoes, havaianas or house shoes with you! At the workshop and day concert location as well as in the friday-afterparty location outdoor shoes are not allowed.

Buffet and Brunch:

Saturday, there will be a vegan/vegetarian Bring-and-Share-Lunch. For a diverse and colorful buffet like we had in the last years we invite every participant to contribute something nice to eat (a salad, quiche, cake, bread, some fruits…) We will make sure that all your delicious food finds its place on the buffet. Please write your names on the boxes you bring!

Sunday, there will be a brunch. We will organize the preparation. Just come and enjoy and contribute afterwards something in the donation Busket 🙂

Sleeping Place:

If you booked a sleeping place (it is at the workshop place) please note
the following check-in times:

Friday 19:15 to 21:00. The sleeping place will be closed from 21:00 to 01:00. After 01:00 it will open again to check-in and for the party returnees.

Saturday the sleeping place will be accessible at the same times.

Sunday at 16:00 check-out ends.

Take care that your stuff is out of the room at that time to make the cleaning work possible for us. Please note that we can not take any responsibility for your stuff at the sleeping place. Do not leave valueable stuff in the dorm!
