Team and volunteers
Over 500 people, members of the international team and local volunteers, will be attending the festival. They come from all over the world and are at your disposal to make your participation at the festival a memorable one. It’s easy to recognise them. All local volunteers will be wearing a magenta T-shirt and the members of the international team will wear a black one.
Take a picture with them and send it to and it will be published with all the other photos of the festival!

Official languages
English and Italian are the main languages used during the festival, some information is translated into French and German. In addition, team members and volunteers will be wearing pins indicating the languages spoken by them.


All festival concerts are free!
We would like to inform you that 500 chairs will be laid out in San Carlo square, where the main stage is, for the evening performances.

You can book in advance tickets for 34 of more than 100 concerts scheduled, to secure your place (that won’t be numbered) in the hall. These concerts are identified, on the programme and on the website.

How can I book and get a ticket?
From 28 July, at the offices of Piazza Castello, you can book tickets, subject to availability, for the concerts of the following days that will be handed out immediately. It won’t be possible to get tickets for the same day.

How many concerts can I book?
Each participant is entitled to book – for each day of participation in the festival – one ticket only for the afternoon concerts (scheduled at 15.30 and 17.00) and one ticket for the evening concerts (scheduled at 21.15, 21.30 and 22.30).

Who can reserve tickets?
Reservations can be made by:
• Choirs’ contact person • Groups’ contact person • Individually registered participants
For each time slot, each representative of a choir or group can’t book more tickets than the number of members of the choir / group.
VIPs must book their tickets at the Protocole office at Torino Incontra.

What should I do to get to the concert?
The reservation will be valid by showing your ticket at the entrance, up to 15 minutes before the concert. After this time, the seats will be considered free and made available to the public.

And if I haven’t booked?
The festival offers more than 70 concerts throughout the city and the region, which don’t require reservations. In the 34 concerts with ticket, there will be a certain amount of non-booked places available that will be assigned at the entrance, 15 minutes before the concert. In churches, the seat is not guaranteed.

And if I changed my mind?
In Torino Incontra, an “exchange point” has been set up. From 14.00 to 18.00, you can trade your ticket withthe other participants or you can offer to someone else the opportunity of attending the event by returning the ticket in Piazza Castello.

Festival magazine

Every day, at lunch, at the info points of the festival and catering area, a magazine with the latest news on events of the festival, service information and many other curiosities to not be missed, will be distributed for free.
