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.

Rent A Tent
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.
Camping in a tent
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.
Resort with tent accommodation
Don't feel like lugging a tent around? Then check out the resort. Here you can move into a super cosy tent.
Camping in Trailer Parks
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 motor vehicle that provides fixed sleeping berths and living space according to the number of passengers in the vehicle, including an awning or pagoda.
Caravan (with passenger car as towing vehicle).
A trailer registered on public roads, which provides fixed sleeping berths according to the number of passengers in the towing vehicle, including an awning or pagoda, whereby the passenger car must always be harnessed in front of the trailer in order to be able to maneuver at any time.
Station wagons may be occupied by a maximum of two persons and must have built-in sleeping berths (also temporary if necessary) corresponding to the number of passengers.
Passenger car with trailer
A passenger car with trailer may be occupied by a maximum of 5 persons and must have sleeping capacity on the trailer or in the unfolded state corresponding to the number of passengers.
(e.g. nine-seaters, small cars like WW Polo or similar, station wagons with more travelers than available sleeping places) are not allowed in the trailer park!
Since we cannot check if your vehicle meets these requirements before the festival, the on-site security service is responsible for this. If your vehicle does not meet the requirements, you may be denied access to the Trailer Park. You are responsible for ensuring that your vehicle is allowed into the trailer park.
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.
Trailer Park in the Greener Living Area
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. All vehicles need a corresponding trailer park ticket to gain access to the Greener Living area.
