PRE-EVENT TESTING / VACCINATION

Do I need to take an Antigen Rapid Test (ART) before attending the physical events?
All patrons are required to undergo ART for events involving more than 50 attendees. This will be indicated in the programme description for such events.

If you have registered or bought tickets for such an event, you should receive an email notification with more instructions and details.

Do note that the turnaround time for ART results is typically 30 minutes and the results will be valid for 24 hours. Do ensure that the time you arrive at the event for the test is no more than 24 hours to the end of your event, For example, if your event is from 9am-5pm, you should only do the test after 5pm the previous day.

VIDEO ON DEMAND (VOD)

What is video-on-demand?
Video-on-demand or VOD content are recordings of programmes that can be viewed at your convenience. As only selected festival programmes will be available as VOD, please refer to the programme description to check if it will be added to the VOD roster. Kindly allow a few days for live programmes to be made available as VOD.

TICKETING & REFUNDS

How will the refunds be done?

SWF will not be issuing any refunds unless it is due to an event cancellation. Affected patrons will be contacted via email by SISTIC, the ticketing agent for SWF 2021.
