We have limited space for camping with bus/camper. Once this area is full, there is only the possibility to park vehicles in the designated parking areas. Unfortunately, camping with cars is not possible at all on the smaller camping area, because our camping area is located in the middle of the forest. Please leave your camping stoves at home. Due to the danger of forest fires, camping stoves may not be used.
Camping and cars
For buses, campers, motorhomes and cars with mattresses - i.e. everything you sleep in - you need a camper ticket (40€ + VVK fee). This must be purchased online in advance due to limited capacity. Parking tickets for cars (20€) can be purchased on site.
The sale of illegal drugs is not tolerated. Dealers fly out immediately!
There are shower containers, as well as fixed showers of the campsite.
own sound systems
With a lot of love we have put together a great music program for you on the floors. The campground, on the other hand, is meant to be a place of retreat. Please respect the quiet areas and leave your own sound systems at home.
The Red Cross is on site for medical emergencies.
There will be several stands. The offer is mainly vegetarian and vegan. There will again be a limited offer of organic and game meat. Please remember to consume meat in moderation, also with a view to climate protection.
Not all floors on the Bay of Dreamers* run continuously from Friday to Sunday.
fire and bbq
Open fires are strictly prohibited! Since our camping area is in the middle of the forest, it is unfortunately not possible to grill there. Please leave your camping stoves at home! With the dry summer, we have to be super careful with the forest fire risk.
Professional photography and all filming are prohibited. Please be considerate of each person's sanctuary. No one wants to be photographed while celebrating without being asked.
For the documentation of the festival a camera team of us will be on the way. Only this team is allowed to make professional film and photo recordings. This team will also be very sensitive when recording people. By purchasing the ticket you agree to be pictured on the footage.
There will be no ATM at the festival. However, at the reception of Lake Helene there will be the possibility to withdraw money for emergencies for a fee of 5 € (for every 100 € or part thereof). Opening hours: Thu 10am - 6pm and Fri, Sat & Sun 10am - 3pm
Enjoy the festival, take care of yourselves and your fellow human beings and rather ask once more if you have the feeling that a person is not well.
Psychological as well as physical violence and wanton damage to property will not be tolerated.
Glass and bottles are prohibited on all beaches of Lake Helene. Thus, for our part, glass and bottles are also not welcome on the entire site. We would like to reduce the amount of glass bottles and other glass containers to a minimum in order to keep the risk of injury and the amount of garbage small. Those who would like to dance barefoot should be able to do so without worry. Therefore, please fill your drinks into other bottles or cups before entering the area.
grafitti & tags
Please refrain from graffiti and tags. The removal on borrowed things (toilets, technology, etc.) will be very expensive for us and thus endangers the long-term survival of the festival. Whoever is caught anyway, will be kicked out.
Participation in the festival is basically on your own responsibility. We assume no liability for physical and material damage during the event and also not in the context of the arrival and departure. The instructions of the security, the fire department and the DRK are to be followed!
Dogs are not allowed. In our opinion, a festival is not a place for animals.
The Bucht der Träumer* Festival is a festival for adults 21 and older. Possibly we will build up a Kids-Space in the next years. But this year there will be no extra offer for kids. Should you still want to take the little rascals with you, there is a camping site, which is not part of the festival area, but is next door and offers changing table, washing machine (for a fee) and peace and quiet. There is also a small climbing playground at the main stand.
Forgot your toothbrush or need some chewing gum? Whether it's cigarettes, condoms, trick-or-treaters, toothpaste or other small items - you'll find plenty of knickknacks and everything your heart desires in the kiosk.
Please leave your confetti at home. We want to respect nature and leave everything as we found it.
There will be no extra cell phone charging station at the festival. Our recommendation: Turn on cell phones only in case of emergency and forget times and urgencies.
