All information for a safe festival visit

In order to make the visit of Elevate Festival as intensive, but also as safe as possible, we have developed a guideline for dealing with COVID-19.

If you have any symptoms of the coronaviurs we ask you and to take a COVID-19 test before visiting the festival, regardless of your vaccination status.

You can find an overview of the free test offer in Graz here:­



Our audience is required to provide proof of a so-called "low epidemiological risk" at all venues and events. As proof of this, the 3G rule (tested, vaccinated or recovered) applies at all venues, with the exception of the Orpheum, Kombüse and Parkhouse venues, where 2G applies (vaccinated or negative PCR test result).

Please have the required documents ready for presentation in the entrance area of the venues, otherwise we cannot grant you access to the events.

A 3G verification will be checked at all venues,
