Tickets & Registration

How can I register for workshops and milongas?

All the available tickets can be found in our shop.

Where and when can I collect my tickets

Purchased ticket packages will be issued during all afternoon and evening milongas throughout the festival. When collecting the tickets, you will be asked to show an identity card or another document that confirms your identity.

There are no physically printed tickets for the workshops. A list of workshop participants is kept and it will be available at the entrance to the lessons at 26 Berka Joselewicza Street.

I don’t remember what milongas and workshops I signed up for during registration. Where can check it?

The list of your milongas and workshops was sent in the e-mail, in which you also received payment details. Look in your mailbox for messages from krakusaires@gmail.com also check the SPAM folder.

Where is the full program of the festival?

We keep the most up-to-date version of the program in the Schedule and Workshops sections.

Can I sell my ticket to another person?

Yes, you can sell single tickets or complete packages to other people of the same gender (as organizers we attach importance to the gender balance). We encourage participants to use Facebook page of the event to buy and sell tickets.

We do not mediate in the sale of tickets unless it concerns the transfer of a whole package.

If the owner of a ticket package wants to sell the ticket to the first festival milonga (usually on Thursday or Friday) and has no physical means of giving the ticket to the other person, we will assist in handing it over. Please contact us at krakusaires@gmail.com

What are the conditions in the Salt Mine?

The underground temperature is close to regular room temperature. There’s a spacious cloakroom, a restaurant, toilets, and a smoking zone.

What time and how can I get underground?

The underground elevator will be operating constantly from 20:45 to 22:00, taking a group of 20 people each time it goes down. Then it will leave in 60-minute intervals. Those rules as well as the schedule are part of Salt Mine policy.

There’s a 700 m walk (ca. 10 min) from the elevator to the dancing hall. The walks are guided. It is forbidden to roam around the Salt Mine without a guide – it is easy to get lost.
