    👽 Ahoy dear spring cheer, ahoy dear sunbeams!

    Helenesee has definitely awoken from hibernation! The Booking-Klabauter* of Bucht der Träumer* 2023 are focused on the last mile and in the galley floor construction plans are rolled!

    One thing is for sure, there is a lot of creative synergyies pumping through our systems right now and you can expect some surprises for the summer! This year it's going to be even more diverse, fatter and more detailed than ever before! The pandemic waves have smoothed out, which gives us a tailwind, and our crafty planning staff is in full swing!

    In this newsletter you get a little taste of the warm season in the Bucht der Träumer* universe. And it's going to be a double whammy:

    We have new neighbors at Helenesee: The Reflex Festival is for all fans of fast techno and will take place from 16.06. to 18.06. at Helenesee!

    And over at Mellensee the crew of Sternfest is getting ready to climb into their space capsules on 09.06.-11.06.!

    In addition, there are news about ticketing & participation, as well as a music recommendation from this year's program!

    Have fun reading!

    Reflex Festival

    At the Reflex-Festival, Psy á la Waldtraut meets fast-paced Techno and everything that really gets going above 130 BPM!

    Many of our favorite buchtis are at the start. As sure as the fat drop after the break, Dave Lewis, Josephine Wedekind, Vittjas Tief, Yetti Meissner and Yobovski & Valent, among others, will ensure sore feet and happy faces!

    The rest of the line-up is also very impressive, including Boris, Braindrop, Cassie Raptor, Chlair, DJ Yara, DVS1, Hector Oaks, Fadi Mohem, Freddy K, Lokier, Mataraph, Otta, Orestis, Paula Temple, Stephanie Sykes, The Lady Machine and many more.

    In addition, some notorious crews and friends are hanging around at the festival and provide hammering beats: Concrete, Durch, Elysion, Fhainest, Gaggalacka, Goat Ball, Gegen, Hard Trade, Heisss, Ismus, Parvati Records, Pornceptual, Sachsentrance, Sonic Loom, Synoid, Voknox und xXETEXx.

    Not only the fat lineup will make us sweat, but also our festival sauna, which will be up and heated too. Because even those who like to really rock out need moments to come down!

    Additionally there will be a varied workshop program with Pyramid Party, Kyle Patrick, Stinny Stone, Edgegar Stark and many more!

    And as good neighbors we support the Turborave with our know how about the area and the already existing infrastructure of the Bucht der Träumer*: our serotonin tanks & confetti drives are under full steam for the Reflex Festival!

    We are really looking forward to welcoming the festival summer after the long winter with a proper load of Psy, Acid, Techno and Deeptec!



    South of Berlin, a crazy band is getting ready to conquer the galaxy with their infectious insanity and mischief.

    The Sternfest at Mellensee takes place for the third time and let us put it this way: with a fat lineup like theirs every supernova looks pale!

    Among others Extrawelt, Kerala Dust, Acid Pauli, Township Rebellion, Mimi Love and Oliver Huntemann have made themselves ready on the launch pad.

    In the squadron also fly some well-known flagships from our rave scene: Rebellion der Träumer, Mystic Creatures, Ostend, Down., Easy Tiger, Schrottpourri* and many more create a euphoric ether of stardust, bass and grandiose floor concepts.

    We are very excited to hear what our friends from Sternfest have to tell us about their journey into the epiverse and are already looking forward to galactic souvenirs from their crazy rave escapades!

    A small taste of the Sternfest is already this weekend in the Kater Blau, where the wild crew from Mellensee cleans up the Hopper. At the brooms await you Elias Doré, Baba The Knife, Konfusia and SHA!

    📣 News from the galley

    Program teaser: Em Coco at Boilerroom

    Amapiano is spreading like wildfire right now. The music style with roots in South Africa can perhaps best be compared with Deephouse at a speed of around 112 BPM. Instead of the typical buildup- & droparchitecture of technoproductions you can expect exciting percussions and life-affirming shouts. Rhythm and groove are clearly in the foreground here.

    We are mesmerized and are looking forward to welcoming various acts from this genre to the Bucht der Träumer* this year.

    For those who want to warm up, here is a listening recommendation from the Kenyan Amapiano artist Coco Em:

    With this music recommendation we close this newsletter.

    See you at the next rave,

    Your Dreamers*

    🤹 SupportA - Workshops - Spaces

    🐧 Ahoi Dreamer!

    While a frosty wind wraps the sails, masts and railings in a dress of white hoarfrost, a small flock of black and white penguins has made itself comfortable on deck. Their soft chattering covers the chilly scenery like a soft layer of snow. But enthusiastic rumbling and the rhythmic clatter of countless boots interrupt the wintry harmony with a thud. Rumbling large barrels and crates are brought onto the ship. With reproachful cawing one bird after the other disappears into the frosty wet and suddenly the hibernation is over: finally the anchor is lifted and the journey to the Bucht der Träumer 2023 begins!*

    But before we depart, we are still looking for energetic support! This newsletter is all about how you can get involved in our beautiful festival! In addition, there is again information about the status of the current Presale and we introduce a new column: News from the galley.

    Pre-sale start for Bucht der Träumer* 2023 - Off to the realm of light & shadow!

    Dear folks!

    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:

    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*

    With 180 knots through space and time!

    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.

    Save the Date - Ticketing 2023

    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.

    Feedback Culture

    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:

    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.

    The cleanest campsite since the invention of the pocket ashtray!

    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!

    Thank You!!

    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*
