Getting there

Because of the relatively remote location of the festival, there are only two transport options. One was to take the Deutsch Bahn to Scheessel and walk approximately 1500m to the festival and camping area. The other is to drive/car share, the promoters of the festival encourage people to car share.

Garbage refund

The festival has set up a garbage refund system where people receive back the 5 euro deposit with their ticket price when they return filled garbage bags.

More information will be here when available.
