Can I bring an accompanying person to re:publica?

Of course you can! The easiest way is to buy a regular ticket for your companion. But there are other options as well:

  • Accompaniment for people with disabilities
    The re:publica wants to be as accessible as possible for people with disabilities. We design the festival grounds to be as accessible as possible for people with disabilities and provide a variety of help and support. Unfortunately, however, not all barriers can be removed. People with disabilities can invite one accompanying person to re:publica free of charge. In exceptional cases, they can bring more than one person or different accompanying persons on different days. The "B" (accompanying person) in your ID card is not mandatory. To do so, select the category "Reduced with accompanying person" in our ticket shop. You will receive an additional ticket together with your discounted ticket, which you must personalise accordingly.
  • Childcare persons
    If you are coming to re:publica with your child, there is the possibility to get free access to childcare (e.g. grandparents, nanny). Please send a request to as early as possible – but no later than 22 May 2024. The ticket is only valid for accompanying persons and not for parents who are attending re:publica at the same time.
  • Other accompanying persons or animals
    We want all participants to feel comfortable and safe at re:publica. If you need a companion who does not fall into the "nanny" category, or e.g. a therapy dog or assistance animal (proof required), please contact us as soon as possible at

As always, please contact us well in advance so that there will be no problems at the entrance. Thank you!

The ticket for an accompanying person is only valid in combination with a regular/reduced ticket. Both parties - i.e. ticket purchaser and accompanying person - must be present at the accreditation or ticket check-in.
