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


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!


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.


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.


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 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.

Graffiti & Confetti

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!
