Join us for the fifth edition of FOSS Backstage on 13 & 14 March. The two-day conference will take place as a “hybrid” conference both online and in Berlin at our venue TUECHTIG. Talks will be streamed live and virtual attendees will be able to ask speakers questions.
With a focus on decentralised decision making and open collaboration FOSS Backstage will be a great place for: developers, architects, sysadmins, community leaders, students and anyone interested in building and managing communities within the open source space, to get together and exchange ideas.
We’re looking forward to meeting you!

Why did ticket prices increase since the 2021 edition?
The COVID-19 pandemic has hit the events industry hard and prices for nearly everything have gone up drastically. The Russian war of aggression against Ukraine further exacerbates this price hike. Most costs for event related services have risen even more than the general inflation numbers suggest and in order to make FOSS Backstage happen, we too have to increase ticket prices. We still tried to keep the increase reasonable and have Reduced Tickets available for people facing socio-economic hardships. Also keep in mind that we have gone from a one day online, one day on site to a two day onsite event.
What are Diversity Fund Contributions?
In order to promote this diversity and inclusivity at FOSS Backstage, we have initiated a diversity tickets program. Diversity Tickets are fully sponsored (i.e. free) tickets that are available to people from underrepresented groups within the FOSS Backstage community. This includes, but is not limited to: women, people of colour, LGBTQIA people, disabled people, and people facing economic or social hardships.
The proceeds of Diversity Fund Contributions the proceeds are put in a pool to pay for Diversity Tickets. Diversity Fund Contributions enable us to use your resources to support someone who might otherwise be unable to attend.
Please note that Diversity Fund Contributions are not tickets for FOSS Backstage (event though they are sold through our ticket shop) and therefore don’t grant access to our venue in Berlin nor to our online event platform.
How do I transfer my ticket to another person?
In your order confirmation and your payment confirmation emails you can find a link to your order details page. Use the change details button in the “Ordered Items” box to change the attendee name. A ticket is only valid for one person and cannot be shared.
Do you offer Combi Tickets?
Yes, all of our Standard Tickets also include access to our Online Event Platform, where you can watch livestreams and interact with other online participants.
