To make sure that all visitors feel at home at our little festival, we have put together some questions and answers here.

TICKETS

What payment methods do you offer?

You can pay for your order by prepayment (bank transfer) or Paypal.

Orders that are still marked as unpaid after 10 days will be cancelled. You will receive an automatically generated payment reminder before the cancellation.

After cancellation, your order is gone. For the sake of fairness, the unpaid tickets will then be returned to the ticket shop and will be freely available.

I have bought a ticket in advance. When will I receive it?

The tickets that you can buy in advance via our website are online tickets that you can print out yourself. As soon as we have received and processed your payment, you will receive an e-mail with the tickets and a download link.

Please print out your car/van/bulli tickets as well and place them visibly on the dashboard when you arrive.

My child is 13 years old or younger. How can I order a ticket?

Children’s tickets (up to and including 14 years) can be added in the shop in the last step.

Please note: Children under the age of 14 may only attend the festival if accompanied by an adult supervisor.

The decisive factor is the age at the time of the festival.

If you are a parent planning to take children under the age of 3 to the festival, please reconsider whether this is the right environment for your child. The decision is of course up to you. Children under the age of three also require a children’s ticket.

All children are only allowed to enter the festival site if their parents or guardians have suitable ear protection for them.

No hearing protection – no admission!

There are no longer any advance tickets available. Is there a waiting list?

No, unfortunately we cannot offer a waiting list. If you still want tickets now, you should check our online shop regularly to see if any tickets have been returned and are available again. Good luck!

Are tickets available on site?

No, there will be no possibility to buy tickets on site. We will close the pre-sale in the week before the festival. Travelling without a ticket is pointless.

Unfortunately I can’t come afterall. Can I resell my ticket?

Yes, you can offer your ticket on our Facebook page at cost price. Offers that are more expensive will be deleted immediately.

Can I stay overnight with you with my day ticket?

No. All day visitors are requested to leave the day car park no later than one hour after the end of the event.

You are allowed to consume your own alcohol in the car park and tent areas. You can buy beer etc. on the festival site. All bags will be checked at the entrance.

Is there food and drinks on site?

There are various food and drink stands on the festival site.

On Saturday morning there will be a (limited) breakfast offer from 09:00 to 12:00.Coffee, tea, cocoa, rolls as well as sausage, cheese, vegetables, jam, nut nougat spread, spreads and vegan/vegetarian alternatives will be available while stocks last.

The whole thing runs according to the Volksküchen principle: drinks/food for a donation and please wash the cups yourself.

Outside of this time, the self-catering principle applies. Please notice that the “Grillpilz” in Gressow is owned by far right extremists. Decide by yourself wether you buy food there.

I like carving. Can I bring my knife?

Please leave weapons of any kind (to cut, to stab, firearms, etc.) at home.

These would also be checked and confiscated at the entrance to the festival site.

Can I bring confetti cannons or something similar?

Confetti cannons are not permitted on the festival grounds or on the camping and park grounds. We don’t want to have to spend the rest of the year picking these shreds from our meadows.

Who is playing this year?

We don’t announce band names in advance. Every band that performs on the weekend is a surprise.

CAMPSITE

Can I sleep in my car?

Yes, it is possible to sleep in your car, caravan, motorhome, camper or van on the campsite.

(If the roof tent of your car exceeds the dimensions of your car (length/width), please book a campervan/van ticket).

Am I allowed to barbecue, make a campfire or light torches on the campsite?

Open fires are not permitted due to the increased risk of forest fires and the requirements of the public order office. Unfortunately, this also includes barbecues.

Our security staff will extinguish any fire immediately.

Camping cookers: may not be used on the ground due to the risk of fire. They may be used in your own camping vehicle and on the table under constant supervision.

Please do not throw cigarette butts, bottle caps or other rubbish on the site! We must return the meadows as we received them.

Yes, there are washing facilities and two drinking water taps on the site.

No. We will have mobile toilets (‘porta potties’) on site, which will be cleaned regularly. Also a few disbled toilets are on the ground.
