Trance Retreat is not responsible for entry related Visas (http://www.germany-visa.org/schengen-visa/).
We provide a safe learning environment and our program is thoughtfully planned, but no responsibility will be taken for any injuries incurred during the retreat. We encourage participants to secure travel insurance for all international travel.
SCREENING AND SELECTION
Why is there a screening process?
Since we have a cap on the number of participants, we would like to get to know all of our potential guests to ensure that we are able to provide an optimal learning and networking experience. With an intimate group size it is important for us to familiarize ourselves with the participants to ensure that we can create the best possible group environment!
What does it consist of?
We just want to get an understanding of your production skill level, your goals and aspirations, and to get to know a bit about you :) A short skype call is all that is required!
Will I be able to release a track on a label by the end of the retreat?
We cannot guarantee that you will be ready to produce a label-ready production but if you are looking to improve your trance production skill and/or further your trance music career this will certainly be a fantastic opportunity not to be missed! At least one of the instructional days will be spent as a creative jam day where the group will produce a full track from scratch with support from some of the producers.
Can I leave the estate and explore on my own?
Absolutely - this is your holiday! We will plan group activities and provide suggestions on things to see and do but you are able to come and go as you please. Note that the estate is located approximately 40 minutes away from Berlin.
