Dear folks,
we are being asked again and again, how things are looking now, with the Hai in den Herbst Festival and so far we didn’t have a definite answer. We have had long talks with the authorities but at the moment it really doesn’t look like the festival could take place in September, even under strict regulations. Unfortunately, the local authorities sees no room for a permit at the moment and we can’t and don’t want to cancel at the very last moment, when everyone has already taken their vacation and booked the transport, that wouldn’t be very pleasant for any of us.

Having to cancel again is very bitter, but in the end there is no use in getting frustrated about it. What now remains for all of us is the confidence that we will finally be able to come together again in May 2022 as we did in the time before the pandemic. All tickets bought so far for the Hai 2020 and 2021 will of course remain valid for the new date of 5 May – 8 May 2022.
We will see if we can hold smaller public parties in the Waldfrieden again this year. If there is any news about this, we will keep you informed. We are sorry that we don’t have better news, but we really tried all we could. Let’s not hang our heads and instead look forward to our next grande reunion in the forest in May 2022 💚🌲.

Chill Out
Here you will find a place for retreat where you can recover your energy after dancing. The chill out spreads across several tents with fire spaces, seating, pillows, blankets, hammocks and chai tea. Relaxed musical backgroud will be provided both live and from recordings.
Forest law
Minors
You can only enter the festival if you are over 18 years of age with a valid identity card or passport. Juvenile minors are not allowed on the festival, unless they they are with their parents. Unfortunately we can not provide family camping so we do not recommend you to bring your children!
Awareness
In Waldfrieden there is no place for racism, sexism, homophobia or any discriminatory behaviour and hateful ideology. This of course also means that nazis are not welcome here. Look out for each other. Those who do not respect these rules are kicked out, for example men who harass women.
Photographs
To have enough room for dirty, tired and happy faces on the festival that will not appear on the internet please do not to take pictures of others without permission. There will be professional photographers taking pictures that will be uploaded here. If you appear on a picture against your will let us know and we will remove it.
Apart from the fact that other people may not want to be filmed or photographed by you, you don’t do yourself a favor if you want to capture everything on camera. The festival is a good time to put your smartphone aside and take a vacation from the digital world. Keep the good memories in your heart – not on a chip!
Ecology
It is our desire to limit the damage to nature as much as possible. Therefor all of our electricity is supplied by renewable energy sources and we ask the food shops to sell organic food only.
Please help us to also keep the direct environment of the Waldfrieden clean by using garbage bags and pocket ashtrays. Also please use the toilets instead of going in the forest or elsewhere for that purpose.
Dogs
Dogs are not allowed on the area. Unfortunately we can not allow you to bring your dogs due to spatial conditions of the nature reserve and the animals that live here.
Laser pointers, Graffiti & Confetti
Laser pointers must not be taken with you because of the high risk of injury. Graffiti, markers and confetti may not be brought to any of our events! It is simply too much work to get rid of the garbage and paintings. Confetti also causes unnecessary environmental pollution. If you are interested in participating as graffiti artist you are welcome to apply and contact us. However, it is not permitted to bring spray cans and markers with you without permission!
