The View

What attendees say about Real Vision events…

The FAQs

Real Vision’s mission has always been to democratize financial intelligence. With the Festival of Learning, we’re democratizing access to financial education, too. We want to help investors of all levels by giving them access to the world’s best investors and thinkers in a way that simply isn’t possible at in-person events. The Festival is unlike any other finance event in the world – it’s Burning Man for capitalists. Dead Poet’s Society for investors. A new world’s fair for the intellectually curious…

A 2-day ticket for the Festival of Learning costs $399 for non-members until 11.59pm ET on September 1, when tickets will go up to $599.

Real Vision Essential members can get a ticket for $299 – or upgrade to Plus.

And Real Vision Plus, Pro, and Blacklist members get the Festival ticket included in their membership. Once you join Real Vision Plus, we’ll email you instructions on how to get your free ticket.

As this is an educational event, we are also offering special student pricing. Please email for details.

We will be shutting down free and discount codes at midnight on September 1. So please do ensure you register before then. We sent the code and registration instructions by email – please search your inbox for “Festival of Learning.” If you did not receive the email, please drop us a line at

We will be doing the equivalent of checking tickets at the door – everyone who registers using a members-only code will have their registration email address cross-checked with their Real Vision email address. In short, anyone who uses a Real Vision members code who isn’t a member, will be booted out the door. This event is free for Real Vision Plus, Pro, and Blacklist members only.

We’re working hard to finalize the full agenda and will be sharing it very soon. In the meantime, you can get a sneak peek at some of the sessions right here.

Your ticket includes full access to The Festival of Learning, access to our Festival Slack channels, and post-event access to the sessions (subject to speaker permission), reading lists, and more.

And if you have joined Real Vision Plus in order to get a free ticket for the Festival of Learning, you also get a full year of access to real, in-depth analysis from real experts, to help you capitalize on what you learn at the Festival and gain a deeper understanding of finance, business, and the global economy.

We don’t offer refunds but you can transfer standalone tickets to a colleague or friend. Any ticket transfers must be made at least 24 hours before the event starts.

Absolutely – the WTF?! Stage will give you an actionable crash-course education in some of the most important concepts in investing and finance. The How I Invest Stage will take you deep into the thinking of some of the world’s best investors. The I Fucked Up Tent will teach you what not to do, while the Tent of Enlightenment will expand your mind on how investing fits into your life.

The Festival is suitable for investors of all levels, with a thoughtfully curated list of guests you won’t find at any other finance event in the world.

No problem. Once you have a ticket, you’ll be able to watch the sessions whenever you want, wherever you want (subject to speaker permission). This is also an important addition for those who can attend live, as sometimes there will be multiple sessions happening at once (yeah, we’re fitting a LOT in over two days…) One thing to note, the session with Michael Lewis will only be available until October 1st.
