If you wish to camp together with your friends at one place, you should arrive together in a group and build up your tents together. Since the camping ground is limited, the security has to take care that camps aren't built expansively.

Attention! Please keep the emergency routes free!!!


Open fires are strictly prohibited!!!

Open fire is forbidden with the exception of camping stoves and grills. Please make sure that you keep a safety distance to tents while using camping stoves and grills. Do not use camping stoves inside the tent even if it is raining outside.

Glass bottles

Glass bottles aren't allowed on the camping site. There were too many injuries caused by broken glass. Please use tins / cans and plastic bottles. Please be aware that the security staff will search your luggage.

Caravans / Campervans

There are separate parking lots for caravans and mobile homes. These lots do not have any power supply, generators are not allowed. Only Vehicles up to 3,5t are allowed. Cars and tents cannot be parked with caravans, please follow the instructions of the stewards.

Please be aware that these vehicles need a parking lot access sticker which costs 35 Euro and has to be ordered in advance.


Bikers may use the camping area for caravans. Please park your vehicle next to the tent.

Arriving at night

You may arrive all night, parking and camping lots will be open.


Please leave your pets at home. Animals are not allowed on the festival and camping site.


The festival site is located in a very sensitive natural environment. Please help us to keep it clean!

Each camper gets a garbage bag and a chip at the entrance. With the delivery of the filled garbage bags and the chip you will receive your 10 euro deposit. Thanks for helping!

Become a Green Camper!

Who enjoys Rock'n'Roll on the festival ground, but appreciates cleanliness and silence while camping at the same time, has for the first time the chance to camp in our Green Camp. The Green Camp is a blocked space for visitors with an environmental awareness. The Green Camp controls itself. Every Visitor who likes the announced criterion is able to apply for this area and achieves entry after showing the printed document at the Festival entry. By (strong) violation of the philosophy of the Green Camp the visitor has to move to the normal camping ground. You can download the document for the Green Camp here. With it you have entry for the Green Camping Ground – for free! Please avoid multiple downloads – we count them to provide enough space. Everyone who wants to camp "green", has to have his own document. It is the only application you will need. At the BÄNDCHENAUSGABE you will get an extra wristband, especially for this area.
The offer of MEIN-ZELT-STEHT-SCHON applies here as well.

My tent has already been pitched!

Do you want to travel to the Southside completely relaxed - without any hurry or stress? Do you want to enter Southside and its campground without having any own camping equipment? The service of mein-zelt-steht-schon makes it possible! You order tents and accessories very easily and it'll be built up for you. You only have to move in and start to party!
