group will receive a flat-rate payment for travel expenses from the organizer.

CHF 450 for three or more people. The amount will be reimbursed in cash at the festival office.
Each artist will receive food vouchers in the total amount of CHF 70 per person, which can be redeemed on the festival grounds. Co-travelers are not entitled to food vouchers or other catering offers.
The organizer will cover the artists’ costs for two overnight stays at the Hotel Krone in Lenzburg, from Friday to Saturday and Saturday to Sunday, including breakfast. Depending on availability, these may be single or double rooms. The organizer does not cover hotel costs for managers, friends, family, etc.
The artists will not receive any payment from the organizer. Instead, the performers earn money from hat money. Because of our long-standing tradition, visitors are well aware of this. The income from the performances belongs entirely to the artists.
No other forms of compensation or payment will be accepted by the organizer apart from the forms of compensation mentioned above.
The Lenzburger Gauklerfestival is a street festival that takes place in the open air. In the event of bad weather, no compensation can be claimed from the organizer. Due to the circumstances and the lack of premises, only a scaled-down version of the program can be made possible in the event of bad weather. We will provide information about any program changes due to bad weather on short notice at the venue. The public will be informed via information boards about possible postponements in time and place.
By submitting the application and signing the contract, the artists confirm that they have read, understood, and accepted the conditions of participation!
