Youth Policy

    Every visitor needs his/her own ticket to attend the festival; the rule also applies to toddlers and babies.

    Provisions of the German Federal law for the protection of minors in public places, otherwise known as the Jugendschutzgesetz (JuSchG), also apply on festival grounds. Children and young people under the age of 16 are only allowed to enter the event if accompanied by a legal guardian or Custodial Person.

    A Custodial Person can be any person over the age of 18 who either permanently or temporarily takes care of a child or adolescent within the framework of education or youth welfare services on the basis of an agreement with the legal guardian (usually the parents).

    Young people aged 16 and over who are not accompanied by a legal guardian or Custodial Person have access to the event until the end of the event. Custodial Persons with parental authorisation must carry written proof of this authorisation and agreement to their status as a Custodial Person in charge of a minor. A form for this is available here.

    Persons for whom age limits must be observed must be able to prove their age in a suitable manner to the organiser upon request. The organiser will check authorisation in case of doubt.
