Around the site

The festival has market areas, plenty of cuisine options including in the campsites. There are cashpoints at the entrance. The Information tent is at the left of the entrance. There you will get any important information about the festival. Inside you'll find the Lost & Found office, public phones etc.


There are four breakfast areas on the camping grounds, which are open on all festival days (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) as well as on Monday, the day of departure, from six in the morning. They will provide you with freshly brewed coffee, fresh buns, juice, scrambled and boiled eggs, pastries, filled baguettes, fruit, and salads to get you ready for the upcoming day. You may eat there or take the breakfast with you to your tent.


It is advised not to bring kids under 8 years of age to the festival. A rock festival is definitely too much for the little ones – not just because of the noise levels! According to German law (Personensorgegesetz and Jugendschutzgesetz), parents have to decide whether children and adolescents participate in a festival or not. The German Civil Code (BGB) stipulates that parents are responsible for the care of their minor (under 18) child. Parents have the final say about travelling to, participating in and staying at a festival. In addition, legal rules are in effect about sale and consumption of alcoholic beverages and tobacco products. If encountered smoking or drinking, minors can be sent home. It is recommended that all visitors under 18 years of age carry a written permission by their parents or legal guardian.
