Is it true that only cashless payment is possible at the festival?

This year we will again accept cash at our beverage stands & the cash containers as well as at the information stand. Of course, you can still pay cashless with EC or credit card. However, we recommend that you continue to pay cashless, as this will enable you to receive drinks & your admission tickets more quickly.

Do I have to pay for my children?

All children under 12 years old have free entrance to the festival area, they do not need a ticket. For children over 12 you need a personalized e-ticket, you can order it here. Parents have to supervise their children on their own responsibility.

Are dogs allowed on the grounds?

This year, too, dogs have to stay outside. This regulation, which parents of small children in particular have wished for, has proven itself and will therefore remain in place.

Is it true that no drinks can be tanken onto the festival grounds?

Yes, we introduced this rule a few years ago, on the one hand because of thousands of empty cans and bottles that were dragged in from all the surrounding gas stations, leaving more and more trash and waste disposal costs. On the other hand, we also use the beverage revenues to finance the first-class music and supporting program. The loss of revenue from outside drinks was becoming more and more noticeable. We make an exception for children’s drink bottles.

What are the opening hours of the festival?

The festival is open from 11 am to midnight every day.

How can I find private accommodation in Würzburg?

At you will find not only the hotels and inns, but also all private accommodations.
