Festival union - Enjoy Jazz and the FotofestivalFotofestival Mannheim-Ludwigshafen-Heidelberg and the Enjoy Jazz Festival have even more in common than being hosted by the cities of the Rhine-Neckar Metropolitan Region. Love and enjoyment of culture, in particular, unite not only the two festivals, but also their supporters and patrons. The Fotofestival and Enjoy Jazz have therefore decided to give festival pass holders and supporters of the two festivals the chance to get to know one another better, swap notes and share their common passion.
Reduced prices at both festivals will therefore apply exclusively for this selected circle, for selected events and during a selected period.
You will find more information in the attached PDF.
Free admission for student of all subjects during the final Festival weekLast but not least, we have some "glad tidings" to announce for students of all subjects, at all universities:
The Fotofestival's aim for 2015 is to be more appealing to young people, to gain their enthusiasm for contemporary photographic art by means of high-quality exhibitions and educational formats.
With this aim in mind, we have decided to grant free admission to all exhibitions of the Fotofestival during the final week of the Festival's duration, from 10 until 15 November, to students from all unis and all subjects on presentation of valid student ID.
