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.
There are also charged powerbanks sold at the Bootschaft.
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.
There are big campfires for everyone and places designated for barbecue.
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!
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!
Guests over 60 years of age do not pay admission.
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.
At the Silent Camp music and other loud noises should be avoided! Generators are also not allowed here.
The nearest airports are Münster/Osnabrück, Hannover and Paderborn/Lippstsadt.
Never drive under the influence of alcohol or any other drug. Be prepared for police checks around the festival.
More detailed information on how to get to Waldfrieden can be found here.
Waldmark can be exchanged at a rate one to one (1:1) for Euro at the Tauschbar and Infobude. You can exchange Waldmark using cash or EC card.
On the festival area all food and drinks can only be payed with Waldmark. Everything else like clothes can also be bought using Euro.
Waldmark makes it much easier for us to organise the money transfer on the festival and accelerates the process at the bars.
For you the advantages of Waldmark are that you can easily set yourself a spending limit and no one has to walk around with big amounts of cash on the festival.
Waldmark is not redeemable!
Jackets cost 1€ and backpacks cost 2€. You can also rent a locker for 5€ + 10€ deposit.
