Your visit to ITA during the Holland Festival
Like ITA, the
Holland Festival adheres to the current corona measures, as drawn up by the
RIVM and the Dutch government. As long as the coronavirus is not yet under
control, testing can help to step by step make more possible. The national
government wants to use testing for access in order to facilitate social
activities in a safe way.
In concrete terms,
this means that in order to gain access to the performances taking place at ITA
during the Holland Festival, in addition to your admission ticket you must also
be able to present a negative test result in the form of a QR code in the CoronaCheck
This works in the following way:
- You make an appointment via 'Testen voor toegang' and get tested within 40 hours before the start of the performance.
- You will receive an e-mail with the result of your test.
- If you do not have Corona, you will receive the negative test result.
- You can then use the app CoronaCheck to turn your test result into a test certificate.
- This certificate takes the form of a QR code.
- You have this QR code scanned at the entrance of ITA.
Please note: only
test results that are scheduled via Testen
voor toegang are accepted for access.
On the Testen voor toegang website you will find an extensive FAQ section.

Self-scanning devices are available at the entrance, with which tickets can be scanned hygienically and without contact. An ITA employee will assist visitors if necessary and will also ensure that the 1.5 meter rule is followed.
The visitor follows the route to the hall by means of arrows. At the room, guests will be received by an ITA employee. The 1.5 meter is indicated by several clear ground stickers, which are indicated on the walking routes.
Wardrobes are not in use. Any coats and bags can be taken into the room. Visitors can put these coats and bags on the chair next to them.
What measures does ITA take so that everyone can keep a sufficient distance from each other?
We have taken measures throughout the theater, so that our visitors and our employees can keep a minimum distance of 1.5 meters. Adapted routes have been created, so that every visitor is guided to the place in the hall with as little delay as possible. All available chairs are always at least 1.5 meters apart.
Doors are open so visitors don't have to touch door handles. There are enough employees available to show visitors the way and thus guarantee a smooth passage. It is only possible to pin in our theater.

If the hall doors have not yet been opened, we will indicate by means of various ground stickers where visitors can wait at a safe distance. Placing in the hall is done on the instructions of the ITA employees.
Before the performance, visitors are instructed on the rules that apply in the hall. It also states that it is not possible to use the toilets during the performance. It will also be announced what the procedure will be after the performance.
How many people are allowed in the room?
The one and a half meter rule is taken into account throughout the visit to the theater. No more visitors are allowed in one room so that this rule can be enforced. The number of tickets that we make available for a performance is adjusted to this.
Can I sit next to my family / roommate / partner?
When booking tickets for a performance during the corona measures, it will be possible to choose a row, but no seat number. Admission tickets are bought without a specific seat. The evening of the performance, the ITA employee will assign you the row so you can insert.

Visiting the toilet during the performance is not possible. The toilets can be visited before the start of the performance. We request that you take into account the 1.5 meter distance when entering.
