Plan your visit
Find out more about your visit to the festival – scroll down this page or search in the menu on the right. There is information about what it means for the festival to be ‘corona-proof’ and what you should take into consideration before and during your visit. This page also tells you more about the accessibility of the festival locations and how to get there. Plus, together with our partners we have come up with some practical tips. You’ll find the FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) regarding O. in the menu.
O. 2021 is corona-proof. The safety of our visitors, staff, volunteers, and artists is paramount to O.’s organisers. Therefore, we strictly adhere to the measures taken by RIVM (the Dutch National Institute for Public Health and the Environment). In addition, we are implementing the tighter regulations for (inner city) Rotterdam and observing the COVID-19 protocols issued by the sector associations.
O.’s capacity is limited due to the national and local regulations. The 1.5 metre social distancing rule is taken into account in every location. Not just in terms of the set-up in the room or at the (outdoor) location but also when it comes to a performance’s artistic concept. The programme is completely adapted to the 1.5 metre reality. We ask everyone to bring their own mask and to wear it on arrival as well as throughout the performance. Hand sanitizer is available in all locations.
In order to keep everyone safe when visiting the festival visit we have compiled the following checklist. We urge you to go through this list before travelling to the O. festival locations. Everyone who has purchased a ticket will receive a service mail on the day of their visit, which includes the checklist. On top of this, the service mail will offer updates and additional information.
We urge you to do the following health check before travelling to the festival:
I. Have you experienced one or more of the following symptoms in the past 24 hours?
- (Mild) cold symptoms such as a runny nose or sore throat
- Raised temperatures or fever
- Shortness of breath
II. Does any member of your household or family display one or more of the aforementioned symptoms; especially in relation to fever and/or shortness of breath?
III. Did you have coronavirus and has this been diagnosed in the past five days (through a lab test)?
IV. Do you have a housemate/family member who has contracted the coronavirus? Were you in contact with them in the past five days, at a time when they were still showing symptoms?
If you answered YES to one or more of the above questions we regrettably cannot welcome you to the festival and we ask you not to attend.
O. is an open and hospitable festival that wants to be accessible for everyone. We are working in close collaboration with our location partners to be accessible to people with a (moderate) impairment. O.’s programme is accessible, to a large extent, for visitors with physical, auditory, visual, or cognitive disabilities.
You can find the information about the physical accessibility of the buildings and/or grounds for each location on our site. Click here for more info about the accessibility per festival location.
Icons are used to communicate the practical information for each performance. They indicate whether the performance and/or location is accessible for people with physical, auditory, visual, or cognitive disabilities. Other information concerns the (sung) language, surtitles and/or additional details, such as the use of a stroboscope or loud sounds.

O. gebruikt haar stad als podium en decor. Veel voorstellingen zijn op onalledaagse en onontdekte locaties in de stad: pleinen, woonkamers, kerken, een oude wasserij, winkel, bovenop de Bijenkorf en zelfs een fitnesscentrum.
