Memberships

Game on! Grab some snacks and watch your inbox!

The lottery starts February 16 at 21.00 Copenhagen time.

It is on. The process is alive.

Since emails sometimes can get stuck, remember to check the registration page every day during the lottery, as you will be able to see if you have won.

To be able to attend the Borderland, you have to register as a member of the non-profit organisation that runs the event. By doing this, you become a full co-creator of the event itself, with all the freedom and responsibility that comes with it. In our bylaws, it reads that “Everyone, to the largest possible extent, should have an equal opportunity to attend”. At The Borderland, everything is art, including this registration process. It’s intriguing design will make you feel safe, while still being challenged. It will treat you fairly and equally, while still being special. It will tickle your hopes, caress your FOMO, while leading you steadfastly towards calmer water. The way we’ll do this is through a lottery.

The Radical Inclusion Lottery™ Membership Registration

  IS HERE

Dear Earthlings, truthmanoids, thinking non- abjects whatever you feel like or think like existing in a form, or a non-form off. Dear loved ones, endless possibilities and borderlings of the future and every present moments of now in an eternal row: It is time! Let the The Radical Inclusion Lottery™ Membership Registration begin!

  • If you win, you will have the opportunity to pay for yourself, and also invite one additional co-creator. You will need the email connected to your friend’s registered profile (that has not already been paid for) to send your invite to your friend.
  • PURCHASE MEMBERSHIP, means purchase of own membership. You can only buy one membership in your own name, the +1 you can do one of two things with.
  • GIFT, means that you pay for your +1 friend. You write the email of your +1 registered friend in the box and you are able to PAY for the +1 membership.
  • TRANSFER, means that the +1 friend has to log on to their own account and pay for their own membership. You write the email of your +1 registered friend in the box.
  • The lottery will progress until 3210 memberships have been confirmed and paid. There will be four rounds in the lottery and the lottery ends on February 24th.
  • You’ll receive your printable entry pass in a separate email after the lottery, please bring it together with ID to the port when you arrive.

IMPORTANT: If you do not act within the 48H limit – your memberships will go back to the pool again, and you will be out of the lottery – meaning you have lost your chance, and will only be able to get a membership if there are any left after lottery ends by first come first serve (which is unlikely).

  1. You have to be registered to be able to go to the Borderland. This means: you CANNOT gift or transfer your ticket to a person who is not in the system (there is a small chance when the lottery is done, if there are memberships left, but it is rather a risk than a chance).
  2. Memberships for carer for person with disabilities are free and are applied to and granted by the board (instructions on how to do this on TALK).
  3. All other persons going to the Borderland have to register! If you are under 18, make sure you have a registered 18+ person with you.

FAQ about memberships:

When can I register a profile?

Any time after Feb 7. However, if you want to be a part of the lottery, you must have finished your registration before Thu, Feb 14, 23.59, CET.

Who needs to register a profile?

Every single participant age 13 or older. That means that if you plan to bring your friend, family, lover or parole officer – they too have to register their own individual profiles!

How many can attend?

The number of participants at The Borderland this year is 3210.

How much does it cost?

The membership fee to become a co-creator is 850 DKK.

Is my ticket personal?

Yes. But, first of all, there are no “tickets”. You are invited to become a member of the non-profit organization that runs The Borderland. Members are then expected to actively participate in co-creating the event itself. Memberships are personal and tied to your membership profile and your real name. You are required to show a matching ID at the gate.

How many people can I register if I win the lottery?

Two. Everyone getting an invite through the lottery has the opportunity to register one “+1”, providing there are still spots left. Both memberships are personal and you have to be able to provide the email to a membership profile that is still unpaid for to use your +1.

Why a lottery?

Previous years, there have been a first-come-first-serve-system, and the decision was made to try a lottery instead. The reason behind this is that the previous years have all sold out within minutes of the registration opening. This means that those years have virtually been lotteries anyway, but with the added layer of giving advantage to those with faster internet connections and dropping people out of the system unfairly because of tech problems. What we are doing now is just acknowledging the fact that this already was a lottery, and have that playout in a more organised fashion.

What happens if someone else confirm and pay for my profile? Will I lose my place in the queue?

If your friend registers you as their “+1”, you will still keep your place in the queue. However, when it is your turn, you will not have the opportunity to confirm and pay for yourself (since you already have been paid for), but you still keep your “+1”, to give to someone else. You will need the registered email for that person to be able to pay for them.

What happens if I miss to pay for my invite within the 48 hours?

If you pass on the opportunity, you are out of the pool, only when the lottery is finished, and if there are still tickets left, it is first come first serve and you are able to get a membership if you are fast enough.

Can I transfer memberships?

Yes. Memberships are personal, and you will be checked in by name when you arrive at the gate. The process works like this.

  1. Memberships may only be sold for the same prize that was paid. Any attempt of scalping may result in the membership being invalidated altogether.
  2. The person who is getting the transfer first has to register their own membership profile.
  3. The one letting go of their membership will then be able to initiate a transfer by logging on to their own profile and entering the email of the one they are transferring to.

The ability to transfer memberships will close one week prior to the event.

Normal Transfers closes one week prior to the event, after which the ticket-transfer option on your profile will be locked. After this, the process will involve a little more effort through our very own fabled Borderland TRANSFERMONSTER… (DUH DUH DUUUUUUUUUHHHHH!).

Is there any other way to get a membership?

Yes (but pretty much no). Only when the lottery is finished, and there are still tickets left for the first come first serve, you are able to get a membership if you are fast enough.

The seven people of the board gets the opportunity to register themselves. It would be a problem if the people who are legally responsible for the economy and security of the event were not able to attend. Therefore, the decision was made at the AGM to give the board memberships before registration opens to the public. However, they still pay the membership fee, just like everyone else.

There are also a few memberships set aside for contingency, to allow for last-minute memberships to for example close neighbours, or government relations or other event essential functions.

Where does the money go?

First, to cover some basic costs; rent, power, toilets, safety arrangements and some other small things. The rest of the money will go towards Art Grants. As a member you will be able to apply for grants to cover expenses, and you will also be a part in deciding which projects get funded. When you have paid your fee, you can add your own project.
