May 2 – May 5 2019

In spring we gather around the forest again to welcome the first rays of sunshine and dance our way out of hibernation in the fresh forest air. The Hai in den Mai Festival is the annual start into the Open Air Psytrance season.

Some basic facts:

The site opens on Thursday at 12 noon. Camping is allowed until Monday 12 noon!

For those who can’t wait, this year there will be the possibility to arrive on Wednesday to camp. We want to give all those who come from far away the opportunity to get the journey over on the first of May and start the festival on Thursday in a relaxed way. However, we can’t open the regular camping site for you on Wednesday yet, but it can only be camped on a reserve camping site outside the grounds and you will have to move to the regular camping site on Thursday! Unfortunately this is not possible otherwise due to organizational reasons. An additional charge of 5€ per tent has to be paid for camping on Wednesday.

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.
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!

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!
