If these checks are refused, the visitor will no longer be granted access.

Always dangerous, especially with a full campsite with tents everywhere. Open flames are strictly prohibited at both the festival grounds as well as at the campsites. This also includes flares, coal barbecues, etc. Only single-use disposable barbecues are permitted.
The festival takes place on a beautiful terrain and we want to keep it that way during the festival. You can get a trash bag for the campsite when you go to the bracelet-stand. You can deposit full bags at the garbage points scattered throughout the campsite. You can also get new bags here. You’ll be able to find enough garbage bins at the festival terrain itself, so we can keep the terrain squeaky clean! The festival will utilize a prepaid payment system with hard plastic cups.
Only small sized camping gas bottles (max. 190 grams) are allowed. Gas installations are only permitted on MOT-approved campers. You’ll have to show the MOT inspection documents to get clearance.

You can only bring 8 liters of drinks (total of the contents of all packages, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic) on arrival at the campsite. You are not allowed to bring drinks from the outside to the camping grounds if you already have a wristband.
Strictly prohibited. Whoever gets caught doing this will have to pay for the damage immediately and will be sent home.
