Camping is only possible with the Southside Festival Pass. The campsite and the wristband-issuing point are open from Thursday, 11 a.m., until Monday, 12 noon.
Please note the following:
If you want to camp with a group, you should arrive together – please understand that our security staff are not responsible for bringing individual groups together.
Toilets & showers
The sanitary facilities on the campsites have showers and flushing toilets. In addition, numerous mobile toilets are also available. The use of all sanitary facilities on the entire festival grounds is free of charge.
Biotopes & nature reserves
Many of the areas around here are major biotopes and nature reserves. We would like to preserve these areas and the animals and plants who live there and protect them as best as possible during the festival. Anyone caught entering, littering or vandalising the restricted areas, will risk at least a yellow card, if not being evicted.
Deposit collection ban
The commercial collection of recyclables (especially deposit bottles, metals) on the festival grounds for the purpose of marketing recyclables is only permitted with the organiser’s prior written consent. Anyone violating the ban on commercial collection may be punished by confiscation of the collected recyclables. In addition, they may be evicted from the festival site immediately. Usual quantities for festival guests in terms of type and volume will be accepted.
Each guest shall be liable for any damage they cause.
We put a lot of heart and soul, time and effort into decorating our festival grounds to make the festival a great experience for you. Therefore, we would ask all guests to please pay our work the respect it deserves. Anyone who defies this rule and removes, misappropriates, defaces or in any other way destroys our decorations will at least face a yellow card.
What is allowed on the festival grounds?
There are security checks at the entrances, where your luggage will be screened. Please bear in mind that these checks are also for your own protection.
You want to relax on your journey to the festival? Without rushing and time pressure, with minimal baggage and stuff to carry? You want to take part in the festival and sleep in a tent although you don't have your own camping gear? Then mein-zelt-steht-schon (My tent is already pitched) has got you covered! Simply book a tent and the stuff you need before the festival, and it will be ready-built and waiting for you on site.
The tent camping areas are divided into the regular campsite and the Greener Living area for tent accommodation as well as the resort (with your own tent or in pre-erected tent accommodation).
People who love rock’n‘roll at the concerts but prefer some calm and cleanliness when camping, can stay at our Greener Living area during Southside. The Greener Living area is is a separate area that gives our green-minded guests an opportunity to sleep in a clean and calm environment.
Want to camp in your own tent but with more space and other amenities to make your festival experience more pleasant? Then pitch up at the resort.
Don't feel like lugging a tent around? Then check out the resort. Here you can move into a super cosy tent.
The trailer parks are divided into the regular area and the Greener Living area. All vehicles need a trailer park ticket to gain access to the separate trailer parks.
A camper van is a vehicle that provides fixed sleeping and living space in accordance with the number of passengers in the vehicle.
A caravan is a trailer that is permitted on public roads, which provides fixed sleeping and living space in accordance with the number of passengers in the drawing vehicle.
The following are admitted:
Estate cars with two people and corresponding installations (even if temporary), passenger cars with caravans, passenger cars with trailers with corresponding installations (even if temporary).
The following are not admitted:
Nine-seaters with 9 passengers, estate cars with more than two passengers, small cars (e. g. VW Polo)
One awning or one pagoda may be attached to the caravan. Small or large tents with additional sleeping space are not permitted. Security will check compliance with this rule strictly, in order to guarantee sufficient space for all trailer park residents. The total length of the vehicle must be no longer than 11 metres and the permissible total weight no more than 3.5 tonnes. In the case of a car/trailer combination (e. g. car with caravan), the tractor must remain permanently hitched before the trailer in order to be able to manoeuvre at all times.
Since it is not possible to check the camper van when the ticket is being purchased, we reserve the right to refuse access to vehicles to the intended space if they do not comply with the above rules. The cost of the purchase camper sticker will not be refunded in such a case.
