What you shouldn't forget and bring with you this year a.k.a. the #rp24 packing list:

  • Headphones, charger, power bank: once again this year, there will be some stages where you can only listen to the programme via headphones. We are using a new audio system for #rp24. Please bring your own headphones and download the LiveVoice app to your smartphone or tablet. Also, please don't forget your chargers and power banks! If you run out of battery, you can borrow a power bank from our partner Rechargy for 72 hours free of charge using the voucher code ‘republica24’. The six stations are spread across the entire location. In case you don't have any headphones and/or devices (with you), we have a (limited) number of headphones and devices available to borrow at the Infopoint. The stage managers at the respective stages can also help you.
  • Lanyard: For reasons of sustainability, we are once again refraining from producing lanyards this year. We are sure that almost every one of you has an old one at home and therefore ask you to bring one with you and reuse it. Otherwise, there will also be colorful cords at the entrance that you can use for your name tag.
  • Drinking bottle: At our water station (provided by Berliner Wasserbetriebe) you can fill your own bottles (up to 1 liter). The drinking water station is marked with a "water drop" on the map and is located in the main hall of STATION Berlin. 
  • T-shirt: You can have your shirts and bags printed by us. Simply hand them in at the Infopoint, choose your design and take home a unique upcycled item.
  • Old, unused smartphones: Do you have a functional but unused smartphone in your drawer? Together with our partner Berliner Stadtmission, we are collecting old cell phone donations for the digital participation of homeless people at #rp24. Simply hand them in at Homebase - preferably together with the charging cable! 

How to get there

The entrance to STATION is located at Luckenwalder Straße 4-6.
Within Berlin, we recommend travelling by public transport or bicycle. The S&U train stations U Gleisdreieck, U Möckernbrücke and S Anhalter Bahnhof are only a few minutes' walk away. You can find detailed travel information here.

Our mobility partner Flix is giving you a 50% discount on your journey with FlixBus or FlixTrain. Simply send an e-mail to flix_rabatt@re-publica.com stating the arrival and departure dates and your journey. You will then receive a personalised discount code with which you can apply the 50% discount to your booking.


Please note: Not everything is allowed on the re:publica festival site. You can find an overview of what you can and cannot bring here:

  • Reusable bottles up to 1 liter are allowed on site.
  • Large backpacks, sports bags, travel bags and suitcases can be handed in at the checkroom. You are welcome to take backpacks, handbags and laptop bags inside.
  • Dangerous items such as weapons, ammunition and pyrotechnic products are prohibited on the premises. They cannot be taken into safekeeping.
  • Animals, with the exception of therapy dogs, are unfortunately not allowed on the premises.
  • Bicycles, e-scooters, scooters, e-boards, skateboards and roller skates must also remain outside. 


Once again this year, we will be streaming the entire Stage 1 programme live on re-publica.com.
We will record all sessions on stages 1-3 and 5-10 and, as always, make the videos available on our YouTube channel after the event.

As every year, photos and videos will be taken during re:publica. You can find the photos on our Flickr channel.

The festival location

To make sure you get to the program sessions quickly and don't miss anything, you can find our location map here

Accessibility & Inclusion

The event spaces at STATION Berlin are largely barrier-free and easily accessible for people with limited mobility. However, there are still some challenges for which we need to work together with the venue operators and experts to develop measures to reduce barriers. You can find more information on the location map and on our sustainability page.
STATION Berlin is largely accessible for wheelchair users. An elevator must be used to get to Hall 5. Hall 8 is unfortunately not barrier-free, nor is the transition to the park. We are currently working on a barrier-free transition to the German Museum of Technology.
The programme on stages 1 + 2 will be simultaneously translated into German and English. In addition to transcription, a team of sign language interpreters will be on duty on stage 1 on all days of the event. After the event, we will make all recordings of the sessions from Stage 1 available on YouTube with sign language translation.

So that parents can retreat with their children, there will once again be a Kids & Baby Space on the festival grounds for playing, romping, breastfeeding or taking a break. Further information can be found here.

An awareness team will be on site during the whole event. You can reach them at awareness@re-publica.com, by phone at 030/202371439 and at the Infopoint.


re:publica is a place for engagement, emancipation and empathy in (digital) society. As a major event, we are aware of our special responsibility and want to make our contribution to sustainable development – in our programme and production. We want to make #rp24 as sustainable as possible for and with you. You can find a detailed overview of our sustainability measures here.

Food & Beverages

There will once again be a wide range of food and drinks and various food trucks on the festival site. Catering at re:publica has been completely vegetarian since 2022 - both for participants and the crew.

There is a standardised reusable system at #rp24. Whether coffee cup, chips bowl or bowl – this time you will receive drinks and food in reusable plastic tableware (mainly made of polypropylene), which makes it easier to return it to the recycling cycle. The only exception: food that is served by hand. You will receive these in paper. There will be two central collection points where you can return your deposit. The dishes will be collected from there and cleaned off-site. A big thank you to GLS Bank for supporting us in introducing the reusable system at re:publica 24.

#rp24 survey

As always, we are interested in your opinions because your feedback is extremely valuable for us to further develop and improve our formats and content. We would therefore like to invite you to take part in our short online participant survey for #rp24. The online questionnaire is available here (from May 27).

re:publica thrives on peaceful and helpful cooperation. Experience the best re:publica you could wish for together in 2024. 

If you ever get stuck, have questions or need help, come by our re:publica info point at any time or write to us and we'll help you.

We look forward to seeing you!
Your re:publica Berlin team
