Security

RULES AND SECURITY ADVICE

Our security arrangements consist of a variety of measures and procedures developed, which are coordinated and implemented in conjunction with the police and the responsible authorities. We have also exchanged ideas and procedures with other festivals and coordinated our approaches.

However, we also need the help of all patrons. The better festival patrons observe the rules and requirements, the more efficiently, quickly and effectively controls can be carried out at the entry points to the festival site. Please ensure that you observe our detailed security and safety advice.

SECURITY CHECKS

On entry to the festival site, a search (body check) for prohibited items is conducted on all people.

You will find more information about permitted and prohibited items here and in our house rules for the festival site.


BAGS

Apart from personal clothing, the only items permitted for carrying personal belongings onto the festival site are belt and bum bags, small handbags which do not exceed DIN A4 in size, as well as bags, backpacks made of clear plastic, clear vinyl or clear PVC, with a maximum size of 44cm high x 37cm wide x 30cm tall are allowed.
