The running order is determined by the organising committee of the current festival, taking into account the following criteria:
- length of productions – to control, as far as possible, the length of each evening’s entertainment
- technical requirements
- type of piece – with the aim of ensuring a varied evening’s entertainment
- the groups’ expressed preferences.
Any impression that certain groups are favoured in the running order by getting their requested “slots” as a matter of course is mistaken.
