Underground Conference has a mandatory registration process including vetting your scene history. We are not doing this because we are elitist assholes, but this really serves a purpose.
Please note that there no ticket sales at the door.
This is in part because we don't have a door.
Underground Conference all is about going to the limits in every regard. It takes freedom of expression to extreme levels. If you are an unstable person, this might be dangerous. If you are mixing drugs with lasers, you better know how to handle both. We therefore want to make sure that orga team already knows about your party habits prior to you showing up.
Also, we don't want "party animals". You are not a visitor, you are a participant. We expect you to contribute, not consume. UC has so many weird competitions that there is absolutely no excuse for not taking part in any. You can't code? Fine, but maybe you can dance to a SID tune, or take part in a water battle on the pond? There are plenty of options. And of course you may simply offer to help out being part of the organizing team.
Due to all this: A registration here does not mean you are approved to join the party. It's an application. You really have to suck a lot and be a total asshole to not get approved, but if you aren't sure you are well-known to the organizers, please give us a little bit more info about yourself.
And of course, there now is Covid-19. While our security concept makes it extremely likely, we might need to be able to contact you in case someone who has visited tests positive later.
Local regulations require restaurants to take the guest's real name and address. We aren't a restaurant, but the rule makes sense, so we will follow it anyway.
Once you have been approved for the event, your real-life contact data will be removed from our database. Without a link to your scene handle, it will be kept on record on paper only as law demands. Four weeks after the event, this paper will be destroyed, and we will not retain any copies. Law demands that we pass on the records to the authorities only in case one of our participants has been confirmed to have contracted the virus. The data will not be passed on just because someone has met someone who had the virus.
Our database is hosted locally in Germany on a dedicated server operated by the main organizer of the event, scamp, operated in a data center rack also operated by us. Besides the paper copy, it will never leave said server. We know how to code. Try an security/exploit scan of this server if you wish. Your real-life data is not shared with the ticket sale page or the payment providers involved.
For the first time this year, tickets will be pre-sold prior to the event. This is for multiple reasons. Our Anti-Covid-19 security concept is extremely expensive and needs to be adapted to the number of visitors. If you don't show up last-minute, we'll still have all cost attached to us planning you to show up. Also we want to avoid touching money, as much as we can.
Unexpected things may happen. Here is our cancellation policy:
Once your registration has been approved by the organizers, you will be provided a link to the ticket shop. Payments can be done by SEPA bank transfer, Paypal or Credit Card (no evil Paypal involved). At the ticket page, you may:
