Please take one of the three exits that will take you to the festival grounds without any problems. Once you have left the motorway, please follow the signs to the festival.
If you plan to come by car, form car pools. The fewer cars we have to direct, the quicker the traffic management. And it’s much more fun with four people in a car than with only two, never mind alone!
No matter how you get there: Drive carefully – especially on the country roads!
GETTING A LIFT
If you want to offer or accept a lift, take a look at the car sharing exchange, under “Interactive”.
If at all possible, come by bus or train!
The German Road Traffic Act (StVO) applies on the entire festival grounds.
Parking spaces will be allocated, please follow the instructions of the traffic management service at all times. In the interests of all visitors, it is important to leave the access roads as quickly as possible.
Parking and camping are separate. For safety reasons, cars and tents cannot be placed together. Please note that you must carry your luggage. We shall try to keep the distances as short as possible.
Those who are transporting festival visitors without requiring a parking space are requested to please use the railway station car park in Scheeßel or the community centre in Westervesede (Mitteldorf 5, 27383 Scheeßel/Westervesede). There is time and space there to unload luggage without obstructing the traffic management.
Please note that the car park is not supervised.
No types of trailers that are attached behind a car are allowed on the campsite (not even temporarily) and must be parked in the car park.
IF YOU HAVE A BREAKDOWN
In the event of a breakdown please first contact the traffic management service. At certain times, quick breakdown help can be arranged on-site in cooperation with the ADAC, subject to a charge. To make it easier to find your broken-down car in the dark, please switch on the hazard lights of your car or a neighbouring vehicle.
Motorbike riders may use the caravan spaces free of charge (i.e. may park their bike next to their tent).
IN SEVERE WEATHER
If the parking spaces have become very wet due to persistent rain, we request that you drive as carefully as possible across these spaces when arriving and departing.
We will always try to provide you with the best possible parking space, but we also rely on your cooperation. Please always follow the instructions of our staff and have patience in the event of any delays when parking or departing.
Unfortunately, bad weather can sometimes cause one or two cars to get stuck. In the event of persistent rain that affects the driveability of the grounds, we can contact a tow truck at your request, free of charge. In such a case, please ensure that you comply with the following:
The tow trucks organised by us are marked accordingly: the drivers wear jackets bearing our logo, the truck bears a flag with our logo, and a number.
The tow trucks organised by us DO NOT accept any money! (Should you notice a tow truck that is not marked, and/or which demands payment, please note the registration number and inform us immediately via our social media channels!)
Prepare the tow bar on your car and switch on your hazard lights.
Have patience -> if it is really wet, the tow truck organised by us must also work carefully, and cannot tow everyone at once.
We accept no liability for towing vehicles – even though we establish the contact, the towing process occurs at your own responsibility and at the risk of the user.
