Frequently Answered Questions
Due to the current situation we finally have to postpone CDC Festival to August 27th to 31st 2020. Only this way we can assure that we can enjoy this festival all together, without having to worry about anything. The new date will unfortunately collide with other cultural events in Europe, but we were not able to find another date and cancelling this highly anticipated event, that we invested so much work in already, was not an option for us. We hope for your understanding and really wish that you all will be able to participate at CDC Festival 2020 in late summer! Please check for flexible postponement regulations with your travel company/hotel/hostel due to the Coronavirus pandemic, if you already booked you travel and accommodation. If you won't be able to take part in CDC Festival anymore, we are very sorry and will retransfer already paid fees. Looking forward to when all of this will be in the past and we can come together with free minds and share our love for dancing. Spreading good vibes! Your CDC-Team

Metro station Lipschitzallee (U7) has good connections to both airports Schönefeld and Tegel, however, Schönefeld airport is closer to the venue. Use the trip planner to plan your journey with the public transportaion.
Use metro U7 to reach the metro station Lipschitzallee. You only have to cross the market place from the metro station to reach the venue.
You can use the parking area next to the car dealer. It is very important to navigate to the address Lipschitzallee 68, 12353 Berlin in order to get there. Google maps navigates you somewhere else if you use the venue's address.

The Full Festival Pass includes 13 open classes, Jam Session, Conference, We Love Dancehall Party, Show Contest & Culture Dance Clash entrance, two Surprise Events and more goodies! It is definitely worth it! Register here.
The concept of our advanced classes is especially meant for dance teachers and professional dancers because we think it is important that teachers keep on improving their skills and knowledge. The spots are very limited, so everyone attending the class can be challenged. If you are not a dance teacher or professional dancer we ask for your understanding that we cannot reserve a spot in an advanced class in advance. During the festival you are free to ask if there are any free spots left, so you might be able to join last minute.
You can register until April 20th, but we only have space for 10 crews per category (Dancehall & Streetdance), so spots might be fully booked even before.
Yes, we will sell water and soft drinks during the CDC Festival. Each day we will have two catering services, one Ghanaian and one Jamaican, serving the most delicious food at the festival, as well as the best handmade banana bread. Do not forget to bring cash.
We provide one big room as changing room for participants. There are no lockers so please take your valuables with you. Please contact our team if you need to shower urgently so we can arrange it, as there is only one shower in the backstage area.
