The present general terms and conditions apply to any sale of tickets carried out by Kanal or related activities through its website, insofar as they are not derogated from by special contractual provisions agreed between Kanal and the Customer. Consequently, the Customer may not apply its own general or special terms and conditions, even if these stipulate that they are the only ones that apply.
- as an organiser of its own productions.
- as a service provider for the sale of tickets for its own productions.
- as partners and co-producers for certain shared productions.

For an order placed through e-mail or phone, an additional €3 will be charged for the dispatch costs (by post and e-mail). Tickets booked online can be printed at home ("print at home") or be shown with a smartphone at the entrance to the rooms.
B. Right of withdrawal
After payment, no right of withdrawal applies.
Tickets can be exchanged, but only for a voucher. Exchange is accepted if the written request is made no later than 10 working days before the date of the concert or visit and is addressed either to Kanal-Centre Pompidou (administrative headquarters), Square Sainctelette 11-12, 1000 Brussels or to .

Tickets for performances in the other rooms can be picked up at the reception desk one hour before the start of the event.
E. Expiry of the reservation
Any order not paid for within 15 working days will be cancelled.
F. Modification and/or cancellation of the programme
Changes to the programme, distribution, venue or schedule may occur for reasons beyond our control. These changes are announced on our website. In the event of cancellation or change of date and/or location, we will notify you in writing (e-mail) as far as possible. These changes do not result in a refund or exchange. Tickets will only be refunded in case of cancellation.
Kanal cannot be held responsible:
- in case of cancellation or postponement of a show
- for the content of the show
- for any change in artistic distribution
- for any changes to the programme
- for any change in the times of shows
- for any change in the allocation of seats as a result of a change in the seating plan in accordance with Article J.
The beneficiary of the ticket must comply with the rules and customs of the venue, regardless of the performance/exhibition or other event.
Kanal reserves the right to refuse access to the Concert and Exhibition venues for security reasons.
We reserve the right to cancel any performance or forbid access to the rooms if unforeseen circumstances or cases of force majeure oblige us to do so, such as (including but not limited to) bad weather, strikes, fire, water damage, illness of an performer, special measures imposed by the public authorities in the context of the fight against terrorism or prophylaxis against epidemics, etc. In such a case, we would propose another date as far as possible.
G. Discount for individual tickets
The external discounts in force are not cumulative and do not apply to the 1st price category at Kanal, nor to subscriptions. Current external discounts do not apply to combi-tickets.
For more information on our combi options and group rates, please regularly check www.kanal.brussels
I. Door opening
The doors of the rooms open half an hour before the start of the performances. Spectators must be seated before the indicated time. If you arrive after this time, you will in principle no longer be admitted to the room. In some cases, Kanal may decide to let latecomers in during applause or the intermission. Your seat reservation is then no longer valid. Thus, if your seats have been occupied by other spectators, it is impossible for us to assign them to you, so as not to disrupt the show. It is also cancelled in case you leave the hall during the performance.
J. Room capacity/privatisation
In the event of low audience attendance, or in the event of prophylactic measures imposed by the public authorities, Kanal reserves the right to reduce the usable space of the hall in order to comply with health standards or to increase the quality of the performance experience for the audience and for the orchestra or company. If necessary, on the night of the concert, we will therefore allocate you a seat of comparable or higher quality than the one you reserved or ensure that you are reimbursed.
Kanal reserves the right to reserve certain areas in the Showroom for private events. In these exceptional circumstances, Kanal undertakes to do its utmost to minimise the impact of this privatisation.
K. Customer obligations
The Customer explicitly agrees to provide accurate, current and complete contact details when ordering tickets. The accuracy of the data is essential to enable Kanal to notify the Customer in the event of a programme/room change. Kanal reserves the right, where it has reasonable grounds to believe that the information provided is inaccurate, incomplete or out of date, to refuse or cancel the requested transaction. This data may be kept in order to guarantee the proper functioning of Kanal's service (see our privacy disclaimer on www.kanal.brussels).
Any falsification will be prosecuted.
Any form of sound or visual recording, including the taking of photographs, is prohibited.
It is strictly forbidden to smoke in Kanal.
It is forbidden to eat or drink inside the concert halls.

For our electronic publications, please refer to the corresponding page on our website if you wish to change your digital data or no longer wish to receive our newsletters.
The ticket is to be presented on request. It is neither taken back, nor reimbursed (notably in case of loss or theft), nor exchanged, nor resold. Tickets may not be resold or transferred for commercial purposes. In the event of an applicable rebate, Kanal reserves the right to ask the Customer to show proof of the rebate.
In order to avoid abuse, any loss or other problems relating to tickets must be notified to us at at least two days before the event.
In addition to paper tickets, printed versions of e-tickets or versions presented on smartphones are accepted at the entrance to the hall.
If you have not received your tickets or if you have lost them, we can resend you duplicate tickets. If a ticket is reprinted, only the latest version of the ticket will be recognised by the scanner.
