For the fifth year now, we have been monitoring safety with the Kooperativa insurance company. We have created a page For Signal as it is, with useful advice and recommendations on how to enjoy Signal in the best and safest way. We want to be accessible to everyone.
However, you should always check this information with the specific installation on our website. The rapidly flashing lights and effects of some installations may cause photosensitive epileptic seizures in more sensitive people. It is best to consider your participation in light of your medical condition.
HOW TO GET AROUND THE FESTIVAL?
The best way to enjoy the festival is on you feet. You can avoid the busy public transport and full parking spots. If you prefer to move in faster speeds, hop on Rekolo! With the special code Signal2022, new and existing Rekolo riders get 2 free rides within 30 minutes until Sunday.
Whether you walk or bike, it’s good to think about your safety first. Take your time, obey the rules of the road and look around you – not only will you avoid trouble, but it will also make you enjoy the Signal Festival all the more.
We strive to behave sustainably and to be environmentally friendly. We sort waste honestly and you can too. We’ve eliminated single-use plastics, and we don’t make unnecessary promotional items from unsustainable materials. Electricity consumption during the festival is approximately 10,000 kWh. This is equivalent to the weekly consumption of 26 kettles.
The Signal Festival is surprisingly energy-efficient. In addition, this year again we have no promotional items. We don’t want to produce any more waste. We would love for you to remember us in your photos, experiences and shared stories on social media. To support us and the festival artists, buy Signal Plus or Signal VIP.
FOR SIGNAL AS IT IS
If you still encounter a problem on your festival walk through Prague, just seek out one of our volunteers. You will easily recognize them, they are Signalist Coordinators, who can be recognized by their reflective jackets with a specific symbol. This symbol represents a light, a laser or an asterisk and will accompany you together with the Kooperativa insurance company throughout the festival.
