Dear festival guests, Update!
We would like to give you important information about the arrival to the parking & camping, the opening of the doors at the festival and about the workshops:
 
CAMPING: Dear festival visitors our camping site directly at the event is now FULLY BOOKED, for more info please scroll down to “overnight stay”.
 
The workshops will be discussed and booked directly with the artists on site, as usual at handpanfestivals/gatherings and will take place on saturday and sunday morning.
At the moment MEA, Patrizio Castrovinci and EDAN project offer workshops on saturday and sunday later in the morning or early afternoon, you can also chat with them directly via FB mess. and ask for information.
But maybe other workshops will be offered by other artists, that usually takes place spontaneously on site. 
Please ask directly, not us, we can’t help you to book the workshops.

During the weekend various performances and workshops will be available.                                                                                                                                    Officially starting on Friday,  evening 1th of July, with a “swiss all star” warm up followed by Louis L. and Manu Delago. Every day in the evening there will be concerts again. See line-up

On friday and saturday after the concerts DJ Dave will accompany us until the morning hours with his progressive psy trance set. Maybe one or the other surprise awaits you towards the end of the evening 😉

Doors always open one hour before the concert.

The festival will officially end the evening of 3th of July after the performance of our last headliner Waagal.
After the festival has officially finished, you can of course still stay on the venue and jam along.

The venue is very close to the residential

We therefore kindly ask you to only play music until 11 pm outside the Kulturfabrik area, for example at the camping site or by the lake on the peninsula by the lake/forest, because our neighbours really only live 50 meters away and are unfortunately sensitive and quick to protest.
In front of the factory building at the fireplace, in the courtyard and in the inner rooms it is unproblematic until late at night.

Especially louder instruments like drums, didgs, or flutes would be too loud and we want to prevent that we annoy our neighbors and the festival can also take place next year without prejudices.

FOOD & DRINKS:
Food and drinks are available during the festival from 10 to 10 at the Kulti-Restaurant for a very reasonable price.

Within a 5 minutes walking distance there are also a few shopping possibilities, a burger store  and a grocery store “Spar”. You can of course also order food online if you want: www.just-eat.ch

For the protection of the environment, we kindly ask our local guests to come to the festival by public transport.

Further overnight possibilities are listed below.
It is really important! to inform us at the time of ticket purchase, how many people you are and how many tents you have, so that we can keep the overview. Spontaneous requests directly at the festival will only be considered if there are still places available, which we cannot guarantee.

Water taps and toilets at 200m from the camping area, no shower facilities, if you have your own camping showers, please take them with you …however the camping area is next to a small forest and a brook! and you are allowed to swim, highly recommended BATHING SHOES to protect your feet!

Another option is the beautiful lakeside resort of Auslikon on Lake Pfäffikon, which is 2 km from the venue.
 

If you want to camp, we recommend that you make sure you get your ticket and the tent area that goes with it, as soon as possible.

These are other accommodation alternatives, it’s really worth to book early!
