Why a wristband?
The wristband allows the organisers to tick a lot of necessary legal boxes in Greece that bypass the tight administration for handling money and issuing receipts on a daily basis. A wristband allows you to pay once, and get access to all the events at a hugely discounted rate.
This is how you will support your festival. It gives you free access to the headline events. This festival is yours and for 17 years Sappho Women has run it as a non-profit organisation. We rely on volunteers and pass many income opportunities to the village and local businesses. But the financial support does come from the women visiting. The wristbands allow us to put on world class acts, bring international DJs and to organise events and parties. The wristband sales allow us to continue with this annual event. You enjoy the festival – and you contribute to its success and its continuation!
Free access to:
All official Sappho Women events that are hosted in the Open Air Cinema, These include the Opening Night Party, Closing Night Party, Live Concerts, Movie Screenings, Sappho’s Alternative Fashion Shows, Drag King Shows, Cultural, sports and fun events.

What are the ticket prices if I don’t buy one?
In 2019 our funding model is continuing to change as the legal requirement of doing business in Greece get tighter. Visitors without wristbands will have to purchase a ticket for all official events. This will range from 10€ – 50€.
What if I am only coming for a week?
We’re delighted to offer three separate wristbands in 2019. One for Week 1 (valid between 07/09 – 14/09/2019*), one for Week 2 (valid between 14/09 – 21/09/2019), and one wristband for both Week 1 & 2, which is valid for the entire festival between 07/09 – 21/09/2019. Please note that the wristbands will be colour coded, so please make sure that you purchase your wristband for the week(s) that you are here.
