37C3 pre-sale is dead, long live pre-sale!

37C3 pre-sale is dead, long live pre-sale!


TL;DR: In preparation for the upcoming 37C3 you have the opportunity to buy your favourite merch right now without having to wait in line later. The goods MUST be collected at the event in the CCH by 28 December 22:00, so only go shopping if you already have a ticket for 37C3! The pre-sale ends on 20 December.

Our 37C3 ticket pre-sale is over and we are speechless and happy about the solidarity in our community! An overwhelming amount of attendees grabbed supporter and business tickets and pushed the average price to currently well over 190 € and right into our congress piggy bank. Thanks to …

37C3: Tickets & Presale

37C3 Presale: Modus Operandi

37C3 Presale: Modus Operandi


We’re preparing for the 37C3 presale, which will work slightly differently than in the past:

Just like in previous years, we want to make sure that the active heart of our community – the people who shape Congress – can make 37C3 awesome again. Since our events are run entirely by volunteers, this first and foremost includes our angels (volunteers) who dedicate their free time and effort to make the event possible in the first place. It also encompasses all the hackspaces and activist groups who contribute to the Chaos community both during 37C3 and throughout the year.

At the same time, …

MRMCD 2023: Ticketverkauf gestartet

MRMCD 2023: Ticketverkauf gestartet


Dear friends of fact-checking,

we guarantee this is not fake: The sale of tickets and merch for this year’s MRMCD (“Who owns reality?”) has begun at We made five kinds of ticket available, hoping one of them matches your financial reality. We recommend you create precedents during the presale since obtaining a ticket at the box office might be unrealistic. Furthermore, our environmentally certified t-shirts and hoodies, printed by a social institution, are only available during the pre-sale.

We also welcome submissions for talks about a diverse set …

Camp 2023 – Last Call for Camp Tickets


The most important bit up front: We will release more tickets, to be sold starting tomorrow, July 11th, 20:00 CEST!

After the last round of ticket sales, we had an unusually large amount of orders that were never paid. Combined with an average ticket price of EUR 376.29 that remained noticeably below our goal of EUR 380, we had hoped for both a fuller camp ground and a less uncomfortable budget. (Remember, we shared our budget and the reason for our ticket prices here.

If we don’t sell out completely on Tuesday, we’ll continue to run a normal presale until all tickets are gone or …

Camp 2023 – Merch presale

Camp 2023 – Merch presale


Get your camp souvenirs in your size now!

For this Chaos Communication Camp, we want to give you the opportunity to buy t-shirts, hoodies, zippers and other camp memorabilia in advance. This is an experiment to make it easier for you to collect clothes of your taste and in your size at the stall later on - without having to wait in the queue for hours shooting fearful glimpse at the residual stock indicator. What’s more, you don’t have to hold on to your scarce cash holdings at the event to buy textiles, but can spend it on drinks and craft kits to your heart’s content.

The …

  • Monday, 12.6., 15:00

What are we even selling there? More than you’d think! Apart from the usual admission tickets at various prices, …

Camp 2023 – Prepresale


The Chaos Communication Camp 2023 presale is not ready to start quite yet, but we have some information for those who are eagerly waiting. Short and sweet:

  • We’re as impatient as you, but before the presale can start, we need a ticket price, and before we can figure out the ticket price, we need to get our budget planning done, so please bear with us a bit longer.
  • Tickets will definitely be more expensive than four years ago, to nobody’s surprise.
  • As always, there will be the option to apply for a Friends Ticket at a reduced price if the regular ticket price is not feasible for …

Behind the scenes: Chaos Communication Congress presale

A scanner, watching you. Beep!

A scanner, watching you. Beep!

Have you ever tried to solve a problem that is completely, utterly, ridiculously impossible?

Welcome to our world! We’re the team running the Chaos Communication Congress ticket sales, and we want to follow the good example set by the content teams, and explain a bit of our work.

Now, from the outside, our problems may not seem all that impossible. In fact, you may think we have very little problems indeed: We run the presale of a …

34C3 Presale


It’s that time of the year again – we’re opening the presale for this year’s Chaos Communication Congress!

Again, there will be two phases, with the first one starting today.
During the first phase, we’d like to invite the core of our community to participate in the presale.
It will end as soon as no more tickets are left in the pool for this phase, but by 2017-10-15 at the latest.

During the second phase we’ll open the presale to everybody on a number of pre-announced time slots. We’ll announce these open presale dates at least two weeks ahead of time on this site.

We’ll offer all tickets for …

Easterhegg 2017 – Vorerst Ausverkauft


vorerst_ausverkauftDie Easterhegg 2017 ist leider vorerst ausverkauft. Wir hatten ein Kontingent von 500 Tickets, die ihr uns, in nur neun Tagen, buchstäblich aus den Händen gerissen habt. In voraussichtlich zwei Wochen wird es eine zweite Runde geben, bei …

Easterhegg 2017 – Es gibt Tickets


Es ist soweit, es gibt Tickets für die Easterhegg 2017 in Mühlheim / Main. Der Vorverkauf findet sich unter:

Das Ticket für das Wochenende kostet 42 Euro. Wenn du freiwillig mehr bezahlen möchtest, freuen wir uns, wenn du ein Supporter-Ticket nimmst. Damit gibst du Leuten, die sich den Eintritt nicht leisten können, die Chance an der Veranstaltung teil zu haben. Weiterhin gibt es die Möglichkeit auf dem Gelände mit einem Wohnwagen zu campen. Leider ist der Platz sehr grob geschottert, so dass wir vom Campen mit einem Zelt auf dem Platz abraten müssen. …

Camp 2015 Ticket Shop is open now!


We all are very much looking forward to Camp 2015 – the new location makes things very exciting but such a new location also makes it very costly: We’ll need to get at least 950.000 EUR from ticket sales, which brings us down to an average ticket price of ~212 EUR.

When we moved the Congress to the new venue in 2012 we have been facing the same issue, remember?
Back then, we didn’t want to raise the price above 100 EUR and right now we don’t want to go above 200 EUR: We leave this, again, up to everyone of you to contribute as much as you can afford to – to make …

easterhegg 2015 presale eröffnet


Wie bereits auf easterhegg 2015 (Pr3zale is open.) zu lesen war: Es können jetzt Tickets für #eh15 vorbestellt werden.

In unserem eigens dafür gebauten Pr3zale könnt ihr euch die begehrten Tickets vorbestellen.
Und nicht nur das: Was wäre das EH15 für eine Hackerveranstaltung, wenn es nicht auch T-Shirts und Tassen geben würde!

Außerdem läuft auch der CfP noch. ;-)

Falls ihr euch ein Ticket nicht leisten könnt, meldet euch bitte bei der Orga, wir finden eine Lösung.

Ticket-Vorverkauf für den 29. Chaos Communication Congress


Der Vorverkauf der Eintrittskarten für den 29. Chaos Communication Congress 29C3, der dieses Jahr in Hamburg stattfindet, beginnt heute.

Tickets gibt es unter

Der diesjährige Congress steht unter dem Motto “Not my department” und wird sich mit den Konsequenzen nicht nur des eigenen Forschungsdrangs auseinandersetzen – von Überwachungssystemen, Drohnen- und Schwarmintelligenzsteuerung bis zu Biohacking. [1]1 Gleichzeitig geht es um das Streben der Hackerszene danach, Technologien und gesellschaftliche Abläufe zu erforschen und neu zusammenzusetzen, die auf den …

29C3 – Tickets and Pricing


29C3 will cost us much more than standard tickets priced at 80 EUR will pay. Thus we’ll sell supporter tickets for 100 and 120 EUR. Please consider buying one of these. Help us minimize our losses and support others who can’t afford paying much more! Thanks a lot! :)

Moving the 29C3 to Hamburg will cost a lot of money. As far as we know yet, 80 EUR for a standard ticket will not cover those costs, even if a lot more people will show up at the …

Drittes Ticket-Kontingent und Eintrittsregelungen für Pressevertreter


Am 11. November lief der Verkauf des zweiten Kontingentes der Tickets für den 27C3 über unser Presale-System an. Außer einem kurzen Datenbankschluckauf und einer Verwirrung beim Zahlungsabschluß der Kreditkartenkunden gingen für rund zwei Stunden die 2.000 Karten problemlos über die Theke, der weitaus größte Teil innerhalb der ersten vier Minuten.

Wie angekündigt halten wir zum Dämpfen des Schwarzmarkts bis drei Wochen vor dem Congress ein Kontingent Tickets zurück. Dies wird in der letzten Runde des Vorverkaufs am Samstag, den 4. Dezember 2010, um 16 Uhr nachmittags freigegeben. Wieviele …

The main presale for 27C3 is beginning


Dear attendants in spe,

as announced earlier, the second batch of tickets for 27C3 will be available accompanying the initial Fahrplan release.

At Thursday, November 11th at 9 p.m. CET (that is 8 p.m. UTC), we will release the largest of our three allotments with 2,000 tickets. Log into our presale system. While the first batch was designated to hackers with rather long journeys to allow booking flights and hotels early, most tickets were sold to Germans. We have to rethink the policy for 28C3.

Please watch out for the booby traps below, so you won’t be left unhappy without a ticket:

  • To …

Different payment options for 27C3 tickets


As announced, there are many different possibilities to pay for your congress-tickets this year.

You cannot only pay by bank transfer, from today you can also choose to:

  • pay in cash at your local Erfa
    Please remember, that not all Erfas offer this service – and that the guy who takes your payments isn’t available all the time. Please find a worldwide list of all cashdesks at /wiki/Cashdesks.
  • pay with your creditcard
    With an additional charge of 5% you can also use your creditcard. Please log into the presale-system in order to find your unique payment-link.

Performance test successfully survived!


As expected, the pre-sale-system has survived the performance check immediately to the release time.

The rush for the Pre-sale is still enormously. The tickets from the first Quota will be sold out in no time.

But: No Panic.

As announced, there will be a second, much larger, quota at the beginning of November. So anyone who had no luck this time get a new chance at the second quota.

The created accounts are also valid in the second quota.

The quota for our volunteers (Angels) from last year, dubbed ‘the golden token’, will be independent of the other “normal” quota.

For all risks and side …

How to survive the pre-sale


In order to avoid any confusion, here is the short and sweet version of everything there is to know about the 27C3 ticket presale.

  • The System will be available by today (10.10.10) at exactly 10:10am Berlin Time (08:10 UTC) via – if this doesn’t work, try instead.
  • The first batch of 800 Tickets will be accessible by then. The second (and biggest) batch will start after we released the first version of the schedule (the Fahrplan) in the beginning of November. More batches will be announced after those. Everyone who did not get one of the …

Heads up, Pre-Sale Begins


You’ve probably waited most of two weeks for this: The pre-sale for the 27th Chaos Communication Congress tickets will start this weekend. To be precise: We will open our server ports tomorrow morning, Sunday (October 10th), at 10:10 Berlin time (08:10 UTC).

Category Price

This will be the first batch of three, offering 800 tickets. The second and largest batch will be available two days after we’ve published the …

ICE 2342 to 27c3 will be delayed by a few days.


As may you have noticed, the start of ticket sales for the 27th Chaos Communication Congress is still delayed.

We understand your annoyance. Rest assured, it annoys us just as much.

Anyone of you ever involved in a project knows: Something always comes amiss, there is always some unexpected problem pushing the release date back into the future. Project “27c3” unfortunately is not an exception to this. Especially since all the work – including the presale system – is being done by volunteers, most of them with a regular day job.

Behind the scenes our coding and hacking mill is spinning, while …

Tickets for the 27th Chaos Communication Congress


While the Call of Participation for the 27. Chaos Communication Congress (27C3) “We come in peace” lasts until 9th October 2010, we would like to make the travel scheduling for the willing people a bit easier. This year a Presale will be available.

Like it was impressively shown last year, the fluctuations in the rush on the Congress aren’t measurable in any way.
The bcc was completely packed, and all tickets sold. The principle of hope didn’t work out, and the displeasure by the people which traveled far and got rejected, or didn’t get a clear announcement relating to the …
