53175 Bonn

The following admission times apply for the Panama Open Air:

Friday – from 15:00 h

The program ends at midnight on both days.

You must be at least 16 years old to attend the festival.

Your age will be checked by the Identification Card at the entrance. The festival program ends at midnight, therefore no adult companion or „mom note“ is required/necessary.

When booking a ticket for POA 2023, simply enter your voucher code in the “Discount” field. It will then be deducted automatically.

Yes, you can use several vouchers at the same time when buying tickets.

Don’t worry. Your voucher is registered with us. Please write an e-mail to our support (info@panamaopenair.com) and state who gave you the voucher and what credit it has. After checking in our system, we can send you a new code/voucher.

Ticketswap is the only official resell platform for tickets of POA.

Absolutely not! Illegal ticket copies are a problem for many festival organisers. It is easy to fall for tricksters. They copy tickets and then sell them on. The seller then goes through the entrance very early and the person who bought the copy comes later and is not let in because the original ticket has already been cancelled. Avoid all these problems and only buy your ticket online directly from our shop. We strongly advise you not to buy tickets on any portals! For more information, click on the BDKV widget: No to the ticket black market! https://bdkv.de/ticketzweitmarkt/ Where can I safely buy tickets for the Panama Open Air Festival? You can only buy tickets online in our ticket shop.

No, unfortunately this is not possible. Tickets are personalized and will be checked at entrance with a photo ID.

Generally speaking, we have a no-refund/ticket change policy. However, in certain cases (e.g. cancellation due to a Force Majeure event or if you do not meet some entry criteria prescribed by the local authorities after you purchased) a full refund (excl. 3% processing fee) applies. 

Not able to join the festival? Sell your ticket(s) 100% safe via our official partner Ticketswap.


Yes. Please personalize your ticket before the event. To repersonalize your ticket, go to the confirmation email and find your ticket. From there, a Vivenu-Tab should appear with the option to repersonalize the ticket.
