Tickets at WGT are a 2 step process
  • Getting the tickets
    • May be 2 tickets, main ticket + camping/program book ticket
  • Exchanging the ticket for a concert/entry wrist band.
    • This is done at the start of the festival, beginning the night before
When & Where to get tickets:-
  • For those in Germany or Europe
    • Use the ticket order form here - English - Deutcsh
    • Buy tickets at authorized ticket agents (list usually appears online about a month before)
  • For those in the USA payment can be a problem.  Credit Cards are not accepted.  WGT must be paid by wire transfer which most banks don't easily understand and will often charge a big fee for.  (if you have had better luck, let us know which bank)
    • Option #1 - Get the tickets 'on the day' at a WGT ticket booth
      • Safest option as there are no lost ticket issues
      • More costly than the pre-sale price, but I have found it comes out about the same total as the US Bank wire fee
      • Tickets don't sell out so you wont miss out (the program book/camping there are 9999 of, so that might sell out)
      • Ticket booths open 5pm the night before.  The bad news is, this usually is when the pre-WGT drinks / dinners start too.  Australians in Leipzig - Americans in Leipzig - English in Leipzig.
    • Option #2 - Get into Town early and buy the tickets at an Authorized Agent
      • Agents fees usually are lower than the 'on the day' WGT price
      • In Leipzig itself they usually sell out 1-2 days before
      • If you are in another part of Germany before hand you can try agents there
    • Option #3 - Find someone in Germany who can process the payment / receive the tickets for you
      • Works well if you are visiting friends or relatives on a longer trip before hand
