The barge is moored and in the galley the planning talks are bubbling! Maps are drawn and the measuring instruments are recalibrated! But the ship already has a life of its own! If you look closely, you can feel it quite clearly: it twitches and trembles rhythmically in the hull and tugs at the ropes! We are in for an exciting ride - a journey into the realm of light and shadow - forward to Bucht der Träumer* 2023!
In this newsletter you will find all the information about ticketing, which starts on Dec.6th! Here comes all the info, so you can get on board in time! Have fun reading!
Watch out! Our presale starts on 6.12. at 6PM!
The festival period is August 17-20, 2023, arrival on the site is possible from Thursday August 17 at 12PM midday!
We had frozen ticket prices since 2020, but unfortunately we do have to face reality. Like all festivals, we are struggling with rising costs. We are affected by inflation in all purchasing areas - but especially by the continuing price explosion of building materials such as wood and steel, as well as rising costs for energy and transportation. In the face of this, survival is also becoming more expensive for the well over a thousand people involved. The increase of the minimum wages is only one aspect - in the light of inflation we want to finance the people working in our projects better than it was possible in the past.
Of course, we want to manifest a few particularly exceptional projects at Helenesee on an artistic level and also offer a few very special surprises in the line-up.
This means that the ticket price this year will be 195€ plus advance booking fee.
To remain socially inclusive, there will be a contingent of Reduzini tickets again this year, at the reduced price of 115€ plus advance booking fee. These discounted tickets are intended for people with a monthly income below 950€. If you want to apply for a Reduzini, please write us a mail with the corresponding reason to: email@example.com.
To fund these tickets there is a corresponding ammount of Fördertickets at the price of 235€ + VVK fee. Thanks to all who are willing to make a higher contribution here and thus contribute a part to the social balance!
Caravan tickets must definitely be booked online in advance due to limited space and cost 47€ plus advance booking fee.
Park tickets for all cars can be purchased on site and cost 20€ each per vehicle.
For reasons of sustainability we still recommend to travel by Bassliner or by train and for all sporty people by bike!
Attention: Please keep your eyes open when buying tickets. The tickets are personalized and the further purchase is only possible via the site of our ticketing partner TixforGigs. In the past there have been many fraud attempts - please do not buy tickets from unknown people on the internet!
We hope to see many of you back at Helensee in the summer of 2023! Team Träumer*
Winter is approaching and the Bay of Dreamers* 2022 is already a few pitches behind us! The last year presented us with great challenges and demanded everything from us. It wasn't always clear that we would make it - cultural production remains an absolute tightrope act in these times. Sometimes it was tight, but the effort was worth it! We've been struggling with the effects of the pandemic, which has changed our entire scene. We had to deal with a landslide that made the shores o Helenesee impassable. This forced us to completely rethink the terrain. The topic of Awareness was very present this year. It remains central for us to continue to reflect and work on our structures. A huge thank you to everyone who put their trust in us and sailed with us through space and time. We couldn't have made it without you!
What happened on site moved us deeply. Thank you everyone for beeing as sweet as pie with each other.
The date of the Bucht der Träumer* 2023 is August 17 - 20, 2023. Our advance ticket sale starts on December 6th at 6.00 p.m. here - Santa Claus has already put out his shoes.
We'll get back to you via newsletter one final time before everything starts, with all the details about ticketing.
Our sincere thanks go to everyone who has contacted us with constructive feedback on a wide variety of channels since the festival. Thanks for thinking along! We are already working intensively on how we can make our festival even better next year! Your feedback helps us immensely! You can still reach us here - and even if we can't always answer directly, we take your input to heart: firstname.lastname@example.org
We're sorry that the employees of a sub-contracted security company have caused some unpleasant experiences in the are of the Mirage Stage - and thank you for letting us know. We will no longer work with this company in the future. We continue to work intensively on making our work structures more sensitive to discrimination. At the same time, we appreciate all Secu employees who have done their job respectfully!
We are also sorry that the wait at the bars took a long time this year - there will be a change here in 2023! All in all, heads are already spinning as to how we can make even better use of the site and make the sometimes long walking distances more entertaining! We are very relieved that after an accident with a work vehicle on the festival Sunday, everyone involved is doing well. We hope that everyone else has arrived safely back in their realities.
And while we're on the subject of feedback culture, we want to state that despite all the challenges, there wasn't just something to complain about this year! We are immensely pleased about the many reports of positive experiences that you were able to make with us this year! A big compliment goes to all guests: We were absolutely blown away by how you left the campsite! Thank you for treating our shared celebration space so respectfully!
Before we dive into the planning again, we would like to bow again to everyone who was by our side this year. Bucht der Träumer* is a complex structure that would be unthinkable without the passionate commitment of well over a thousand people.
This necessarily includes:
All artists, awareness-team, the construction kiosk, bassliner crew, all construction, floor and decoration crews, check-in, reception and info point, care workers, crew kitchen and foodies, ecoteam and upcycling, gastro team, fire brigade & DRK, beverage supply & data juggling, digital coin department, festival photographers, artist office, lighting and sound technology, performance & theater planning, production team, psycare, roller skate disco, sauna space, stage management, supportabase, space operations and all the crazy microcosms on the site from screen printing to the post office, cleaning team, secu, transport, ticketing, medical team, tent builders, trust center, workshop space & workshop leaders! 🙏🙏🙏
We would never have come this far without you!
See You next summer! Team Träumer*
