Decoration & Visuals

Sons of Earth Decoration

Main Floor

Sons of Earth Decoration is the new scenography project by Philipp Rehse. He was an active co-founder, creative director and rigger at U-Helica Project Decoration until 2023. With his old crew, he was involved in several major psytrance festivals and was able to work with renowned artists and festival organisers. Since the beginning of 2024, he has been embarking on a new creative journey with his solo project Sons of Earth Decoration. Inspired by the powerful aesthetics and diverse colour nuances of nature, the project cleverly combines natural elements with the abstract, colourful forms of psychedelic art. The goal is to create vibrant worlds where the psytrance community can fully experience the magic of music. The installations are designed to offer a journey that blurs the boundaries between reality and imagination. Sons of Earth not only builds stage sets and dance floors, but creates natural living worlds to take everyone on a transcendental journey. In doing so, he endeavours to engage the senses of festival-goers and offer a unique, transformative experience. Each element is carefully crafted to create a visual symphony that engages the psyche of the community, expanding their senses and creating a unique symbiosis between the natural world and the visionary imagination.

Provisuell und Centipedede Productions

Backyard

At the Backyard, Provisuell and Centipede Productions will join forces to create a very special psytechno floor. Industrial lamps, hi-tech objects and lots of analogue light will once again turn the floor into a burning cauldron. A home game for Provisuell and Centipede, who have already enchanted the forest so often. Rave on!

Hexenwerk

Hill Top

A special video mapping awaits you for the Hilltop, because Hexenwerk brings animals to life. Whether owls, ravens or insects. There will be something new again.
In 2019, Moon to Sun founded this decoration team, consisting of DJs Cyed and Momik. They are still working hard to delight you again.

ARTUVISUAL by TIMBO

Schwarzer Platz

Between organic structures and captivating installations, you will find a place to linger and let your mind wander in new dimensions of black light.
His tip: Use 3D glasses to lose yourself even deeper in color and joy! We look forward to Timbo and an extra colorful Hai in den Mai 2024!

Farbenrausch

Schwarzer Platz

Farbenrausch is a creative decoration team, a project by Awen Studios, consisting of three art-loving friends from the Austrian Alps. They find inspiration in music and community, capturing the beautiful energy of the psychedelic scene in their work.

Healing Area & Workshops

In the Healing Area by the lake, you can take part in spiritual programs. There are also many lectures and workshops on the topic of spirituality.

We look forward to seeing you!


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!
