Camping / Accomodation
Camping on the campsites established for this purpose is possible from Thursday from 11 a.m. until Monday at 10 a.m. Wild camping is not permitted.
Please observe the sleeping hours between 2 a.m. and 8 a.m.
The entire area occupied by the festival is located in an extremely sensitive nature zone that is subject to protection. We know that you appreciate this natural environment, so please help to keep it clean.
When planning and preparing for the Highfield Festival we not only rely on established concepts, but also welcome new ideas as to how the festival can be optimised even further for visitors, artists, residents and the environment.
If you wish to take a step further and help not only the environment, but also people in the Third World, you can donate your drinks deposit to the volunteers of Viva con Agua. Viva con Agua is a charity from Hamburg, which will collect beakers, cans and plastic bottles that are subject to a deposit, on the festival grounds and on the campsite, with the money going towards drinking water projects all over the world.
CAMPER VANS / CARAVANS
Camper vans, caravans and self-designed sleeping vehicles require a Trailer Park badge in order to gain access to the separate caravan campsite. This badge costs 50 Euro per vehicle ("sleeping van”, not car-drawn vehicles). This forgery-proof badge can be bought in advance only online via this site or by telephone from FKP Scorpio Konzertproduktionen GmbH 01806 - 853 555 (0.20 €/per call from a fixed line, mobile charges max. 0.60 €/per call).
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 VEHICLES ARE NOT PERMITTED
A nine-seater with 9 passengers, combis such as a Passat, Laguna, etc. with more than 2 passengers, VW Polos, etc.
THE FOLLOWING VEHICLES ARE PERMITTED
Combis with two persons and the requisite fittings (where applicable, also temporary), car with caravan, car with a trailer containing the requisite fittings (where applicable, also temporary).
TENTS / PAGODAS
ONE awning or ONE pagoda is allowed on the camper van. 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 camper sticker holders. The total length of the vehicles is limited to 11 metres and the permitted weight is restricted to 3.5 t. In the case of a caravan, the drawing vehicle must be attached to the caravan the whole time, in order to be able to manoeuvre at any time.
RULES WHEN PURCHASING
Due to the limited number of caravan spaces at the festival, we can offer maximal 1 Trailer Park badge per 2 festival passes purchased. We ask for your understanding.
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.
Motorbike riders may use the caravan spaces free of charge (i.e. may park their bike next to their tent).
Those who appreciate some calm and cleanliness while enjoying rock ‘n’ roll on the grounds can stay in our greener living section (Grüner Wohnen) at the Highfield. This is an enclosed area that aims to give visitors with an environmentally friendly attitude the possibility to sleep in a quiet and clean space. Grüner Wohnen is essentially self-regulating. Every visitor who values the criteria listed above may order a ticket for a tent pitch in this area. Any gross infringements of the prevailing philosophy will lead to visitors losing their access rights, and they will then be redirected to the normal campsite.
Naturally, the MEIN-ZELT-STEHT-SCHON offer also applies here.
Here is some information on our Grüner-Wohnen philosophy:
Excessively loud voices are just as much a taboo here as noisy souvenirs from the stadium or party mile, which is also true of high-wattage stereo devices – after all, the ears need a bit of a rest after such a busy day. That doesn’t mean it has to be as quiet as the grave here; jolly conversation and music-making should simply be kept at a volume that is tolerable to the neighbours.
Some people seem to believe that making an extensive mess around their tent and the surrounding area is all part of their freedom. We don’t actually condone that anywhere, but we can only restrict it to a limited degree on the campsite. In the Grüner Wohnen area the detritus of wealth should not lie around the place, but should instead be thrown into the intended containers.
It is already implied in the above paragraphs and indeed should apply to life in general, but it is worth emphasising here: The festival should be as pleasant as possible for all who attend. Take the time to look to your left and right – after all, you also desire the same degree of consideration from your neighbour.
How much camping space may I use?
Do's & Don'ts
Your luggage will be searched at the access points. Be aware that these checks are also being carried out for your own safety.
The risk of injury from glass bottles is extremely high, and we want to prevent serious wounds.
- Tents and tent material
- Tent accessories such as camping chairs, camping tables, a normal pavilion (3x3 metres) per camp (applies to roughly 10 persons – if larger groups are camping together, more pavilions are allowed accordingly)
- Disposable barbecues, small tripod barbecues, charcoal lighter
- Gas cooker with gas banisters (canisters up to max. 450 g)
- Drinks casks (up to 5 litres), cans, plastic bottles, TetraPak cartons
- Glass bottles / glass containers
- Large gas bottles
- Unreasonable structures such as party tents or similar
- Furniture such as sofas, armchairs, large tables
- Building materials, bulky refuse
- Power generators, electricity units, external car batteries
- (Car) trailers
- Dry ice
- Liquid barbecue lighter
- Megaphones, laser pointers
- Firearms, knives, daggers and weapons of any kind
- Saws, axes, hatchets and similar tools
- Fireworks, sparklers, catapults and other pyrotechnical items of any description (incl. Bengal Fire)
- Animals of all kinds
Open fires are strictly forbidden on the entire grounds!
Exceptions are camping cookers and barbecues. Please ensure in these cases that a sufficient distance is maintained to adjacent tents. Please do not even consider cooking inside your tent. That’s really dangerous! For the camping barbecue, small (disposable) gas canisters up to 450 g are permitted. However we reserve the right to withdraw this permission if we observe any misuse of the canisters and thus a risk to life or limb. Dry barbecue lighters are allowed, don’t even think about bringing liquid barbecue lighters!
BENGAL FIRE / PYROTECHNICS
It is forbidden to bring and/or set off Bengal or any other fireworks! Infringements will be punished at least with the yellow ribbon. The yellow ribbon means being banned from entering the event grounds until the following day. This ribbon may also be exchanged for a festival wristband after successful participation in an instruction at the time marked on the ribbon.
Those who want to camp together should arrive together and set up the tents together. Please understand that Security is not responsible for placing acquainted groups together on the campsite, but instead must take care of organisational matters such as emergency escape routes. Camping space is limited, so that it is unfortunately necessary to position the tents as closely and logically as possible. Important! The emergency escape routes must be kept clear.
