SMS.Save Your Beach

Save Your Beach 2.0 - Glas ban at SMS.Festival

Many of you are thrilled every year by the great location of the SMS. And so you can certainly understand that the protection of our festival site is a constant concern. Thus, from this year, there will be a strict glass ban both on the festival grounds and on the campground.

On the one hand, we are forced to comply with this step, on the other hand, we support this measure, since the elimination of glass breakage is always a difficult task and most of all injuries are cuts by broken glass.

Please adhere to this new but required rule, which also applies to nutella, sour cucumbers or gooseberries. There will definitely be checks at the entrance, as well as at the campsite.

As an alternative to glass bottles, drinks can be transferred to appropriate plastic bottles.

FAQ – Important Things to Know

The SMS festival area is a sensitive landscape that deserves protection. Please respect the nature and keep the following points in mind: 

How much do I have to pay for camping?

Nothing. Camping is included in the ticket price

Which camping field is the loudest and which one is quiet?

To give respect to all of our festival-goers, we separated our camping fields into a loud and a quiet part. On the loud camping field you can party all around the clock, while on the quiet one you can enjoy almost spiritual silence. Thus, we kindly ask you to respect this separation

What are the opening hours of the camping fields?

Our camping fields open on Wednesday morning and close on Monday morning. During this period the camping ground will stay open all the time

Can I park my car alongside the tent?

You can bring your car onto the camping fields. Please note that the louder one (A) usually fills up pretty fast.

Can I get connections to water and electricity for my camper?

No, sorry. The fields are only used for camping during our festival. Therefore there are no camping facilities like water and electricity connection. 

Stuff

Due to danger of injury it is not allowed to bring glas bottles, tins, gallons and plastic bottles to the festival site (this is not essential for the camping site). Our security staff will check bags.

Medical Aid

You will get medical help at the first aid service next to the main entrance.
