Festival Info / FAQ
Here you can find a lot of useful information for the Hai in den Mai Festival.
Besides, there are many useful things here, such as:
- Tents and sleeping bags
- blankets and mattresses
- old festival bracelets
- tent locks
- Mosquito repellent
- Waldfrieden Waldfreakquenz Compilation CDs
- Free pocket ashtrays
- and many more!
The campsite is a quiet area. If you feel disturbed by the sound systems on the campsite please let your neighbours know. You will be supported by the security if necessary.
It is also possible to reserve a pitch with electricity for your camper/caravan.
The camping areas at this year’s Hai in den Mai festival are very limited! We therefore kindly ask you to move as close together as possible when setting up your camps and only use as much space as necessary. Out of fairness to the others, please refrain from setting up a large camp and reserving space for friends who are yet to arrive. Together let’s ensure that everyone has enough space and that we don’t exhaust the landscape around Waldfrieden.
Remaining credit from the festival can be transferred back to your account up to 2 weeks after the Hai in den Mai. This will be possible here.
A repayment of remaining credit after 22.05.2023 is no longer possible!
In order for the plants and small animals on the grounds to survive the parties and festivals unharmed and to preserve the distinctive landscape of the Waldfrieden, please follow a few rules that should go without saying:
Please dispose of your trash and cigarette butts properly. Garbage bags and pocket ashtrays are available free of charge at the Bootschaft during the festivals. Please use only Dixi toilets and toilet carts and do not go into the forest or run around in the fields for this matter. Let’s make sure together that the forest keeps its peace.
We charge the electricity flat rate per pitch. Share the pitch with several people and the 500 watts you get from us. This offer is valid for tents as well as mobile homes for all four festival days incl. support by our electrician.
Please note before booking that the operation of electric heating systems is not possible.
The purchased Energy Camping ticket is valid as an additional ticket to the regular ticket. Of course, you have to buy a normal ticket to visit the festival regardless of this!
During the festival you can ask for lost stuff at the Infobude.
Please leave fireworks, confetti and graffiti cans completely at home.
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!
Wheelchair users and guests who are dependent on an accompanying person because of dissabilites can bring one accompanying person who will get free admission.
Rent it here online and get it on site. After booking the equipment online, you will pick up your order at their on-site festival camping shop. Make your reservation here!
For each sofa you bring with you, you will have to pay an additional 5€ disposal fee, because in the past we had too many sofas left on the camp site.
