Staying on a campsite is on a paying basis. You have to rent one place for a tent and a vehicle for the entire period of the festival. You do not have to book the place in advance; there is enough space for everyone!
If you plan to attend the festival with children, we suggest you to stay at the "quiet zone" of the campsite - loud music will not disturb you in that case; although it will take a little longer to get to the festival venues.
If you plan to come with a big, cheerful and noisy company, we recommend you to stay at the “youth zone” of the campsite in order not to disturb other festival guests.
We remind you that the festival is alcohol-free and complies with the silence law. Police officers always patrol the festival territory.
Please, use barbeque sets to cook food. If you wish to spend an evening enjoying a bonfire we organized cozy and safe places for you.
Keep the territory clean. Every campsite guest will be provided with a garbage bag. Trash containers for the disposal of full bags are available.
Do not store valuables in a tent unattended, the festival management is not responsible for things left unattended in a tent or anywhere else at the festival territory.
If you find somebody’s property or valuables, please bring it/them to the festival campsite headquarters. We will find the owner of the lost property.
If you lose something you may visit the festival campsite headquarters, probably your things are there

Pets are not recommended at the festival for the following reasons:
- there is no veterinary control service at the festival, which could examine the availability of all necessary vaccinations of an animal for safe stay of all visitors at the festival;
- pets may be frightened of a large crowd, a loud sound or fireworks and can behave inadequately.
Nevertheless, if you decide to bring a pet, we kindly ask you to look and clean up after it, and do not let off the leash.
Avoid the crowd.

The Food Court venue offers a large variety of meals that are more appropriate for adults. If your child has certain food habits (restrictions), please take them into consideration.
