Health & Safety

The pandemic has hit the events industry hard as all events have one thing in common: To bring people together. We want to do this in a way that is as safe and inclusive as possible. We want you to have a safe and comfortable experience here in Berlin.

Since we cannot predict how the pandemic situation will be at the event date, the rules & guidelines below may change. We guarantee however, that the rules will only be strengthened, and never weakened.

Below are the current rules & guidelines for FOSS Backstage 2024:

  • We strongly recommend that everyone who attends FOSS Backstage 2024 onsite be vaccinated with two vaccinations plus any additional booster shots that are medically recommended.
  • We request that anyone sick or experiencing any cold/flu-like symptoms stay home for their own safety and the safety of others.
  • We encourage you to to test yourself for COVID-19 before attending the event.

We will update these rules as required and also provide you with additional information as they become available. If you have any questions, concerns or recommendations, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us at
