GENERAL FAQs

ACCESSIBILITY
Our Akasha Festival location has uneven ground consisting of grass, sand and wood, which is difficult to manouver in a wheelchair. Therefore accessibility for wheelchair users is only partially given. If you require an accompanying person with free entry, please state so and verify with your disability card marked with a ‚B’. There will be adapted toilets on the festival site. 

BBQ
If you plan to BBQ at the campsite, please make sure to only use the declared BBQareas to reduce the risk of forest fires. BUS

BUS SHUTTLES
Our shuttle service from and to Berlin, operated by our friends at Bassliner, is available for bookings here.

CAMPING 
You will receive access to the campsite with your valid festival ticket. Please only pitch your tents and enjoy your own food and drinks here. Note that glass bottles and containers are prohibited. The use of BBQ is only allowed in the designated BBQ areas due to the danger of forest fires. Please take care to keep the campsite clean and treat the beautiful surrounding nature with respect. Cigarette butts are rubbish too and cause forest fires. Please use a pocket ashtray or the next bin to dispose of your butts! The campsite is a retreat where you can breathe and relax. Be considerate of your neighbours, be nice to each other and leave your sound systems at home – there’s plenty of music to be heard throughout the weekend. 

CHILDREN 
As much as we love the little ones, children will not be able to attend Akasha Festival this year, even if they are accompanied by their guardians. So please organise a babysitter for the weekend. Entry only over the age of 18 years. 

CONFETTI
Please don’t bring confetti: it isn’t biodegradable and literally impossible to clean-up.

DOGS
Please leave your dogs (and other pets) at home. A festival is not the right setting for them. Do your loved ones a favour and leave them with friends or family. 

DRUGS
The dealing or use of illegal drugs is prohibited on the festival premises. Anyone caught dealing drugs will immediately have to leave the festival grounds and will be reported to the police. If you or someone around you is feeling unwell due to drug use, please contact the nearest member of staff or go to the medical tent for help.

ENTRY
Minors under the age of 18 years will not be granted entry to the festival area. Please note that you may be checked at the entrance. We strongly advise you to take an official and valid ID card or passport with you. Student cards or similar unofficial documents will not be accepted and may result in non-admittance. 

FEELING GOOD
…means having fun and making friends with the people around you. Look after each other and each other’s belongings and provide help if needed. Criminal assault, discrimination and malicious mischief will not be tolerated and offenders risk the eviction from the festival and handing-over to the police. Thanks for being respectful.  

FIRE
As romantic as they might seem, open fires such as bonfires or BBQ outside the BBQ areas are highly dangerous and therefore strictly prohibited. The same applies to Chinese lanterns. Both the festival grounds and campsite are located near a forest, with a high risk of forest fires during the summer months. In case of a fire, please contact any staff member immediately, even if the fire has been controlled and since put out by you.

FIRST AID
There will be a first aid post on site with paramedics who will be looking after festival goers. Don’t hesitate to address them if you or another person is in need of help. Take care of yourselves and each other. 

FOOD & DRINK

Food will include and primarily if not exclsusively focus on delicious vegan and vegetarian options. All kinds of drinks will be available at our various bars. All meat products in the catering sector must feature the EU organic label. Please leave your own food and drink at the camp site when you enter the festival grounds. 

GLASS
As broken glass poses an exceedingly high risk of injury for us and all wildlife, glass containers of any kind are prohibited on both the festival grounds and campsite. 

GREEN MINDSET
Please pay attention to nature and leave the campsite the way you found it when you first arrived. You can take your garbage and unneeded tents to the containers on site.
