FESTIVAL INFO


 

As many of you know, this festival takes place in Bäckabo forest. Nature and its togetherness are part of the basic concepts of this festival. We think it is a blessing to be able to create and share this amazing experience in this beautiful forest, but for that to be possible we all need to collaborate and take care of this gift. Take care of ourselves and each other as brothers and sisters, open our hearts and stand in our own power. The love, the music and the unity of the people is what this festival is about. So please show gratitude to nature and the surroundings.  
 
INFO! 
 
  • BRING YOUR ID: at the entrance you may need to provide identification, OBS!  Everyone under 18 must have a parent that is responsible for them during the festival. 
 
  • RUBBISH: we provide and organise recycling bins and a recycling station, so please make sure you recycle. 
 
  • CIGARETTE BUTTS: we are doing our best to provide ash trays, so whatever you do don’t put them on the ground, take your time and find a bin/ashtray. 
 
  • GLASS: we don't allow any kind of glass items on festival site, for everyone safety (people, animals, nature). 
 
  • DOGS: we believe a music festival is no place for our sensitive animal friends. We make no exceptions! 
 
  • CHILDREN: we welcome and care about all children. That’s why don’t tolerate children at the main stage area after 21:00. Children must wear ear protection at all times throughout the festival, especially at main stage. We do our best to provide a safe environment but we don’t take any responsibility for your children’s safety.  Please take good care of them. 

  • PARKING: Its 2km from the festival area. It takes about 30 minutes to walk to the festival. IMPORTANT! If you have a lot to carry or children we suggest you to bring a barrow, trailer or similar because we cannot longer provide our FOREST-TAXI.

  • FIRE: we do NOT allow any fires anywhere on the festival site! Please respect that! There is going to be 2 fires on site, one at the Chill out and one at the Main stage.  Forest star crew will look after them all times.  
 
  • TIPS: KNOTTEN & MOSQUITOS: these tiny little creatures usually are at the festival; their bites are very itchy and if bitten multiple times can result in swelling. Consider bringing yours repellents and a light scarf or net to protect your face. 
 
  • RAIN: midsummer often blesses us with rain, so be prepared for it, the ground can get very muddy so gumboots are the best! 
 
  • COLD WEATHER: yes it is summer but believe us, especially at night time, in Bäckabo forest, the temperature drops a lot and it gets very cold, we recommend you to take warm clothes, sleeping bags and blankets for your campsite. 
 
  • EARPLUGS: it is a good idea to bring earplugs with you, they can be very useful when you need a break from the loud music or when you want to sleep. 
 
  • MONEY: bring cash, since we don’t have atm’s or card use, so you can buy food and shop at the market area, there is going to be lots of alternative cool shops, don't miss it! The closest atm is in Tidaholm or Hjo, about 15 km from the festival area. 
 
  • WATER: We provide drinking water, But It always good if  you come with your own water supply as well,  In the forest there is a small creek but we do not take any responsibility for the water “safety”. We personally drink from it and it’s never been a problem as far as we know, But we suggest you to collect water where the stream is running (please don’t use soap or toothpaste in the creek). Thank you

  • TOILETS: we provide Baja major (portable toilettes) so please use them! For those who decide to use the forest, this is how it should be done  
 
Nr 1 - Please be aware! Do not wee near the creek! 
 
Nr 2 – Go far away from the festival area! Dig a hole in the ground big enough to contain all your waste, cover your waste very well, including the toilet paper, so none will accidentally step on it. Respect the nature, keep it clean and leave no trace! 

 

It sound like so many “rules”, but we hope you understand that it is our Responsibility to make sure that everyone has a clear vision and awareness about How a festival should run, to be able to keep it clean and functional in every way. 
We put our trust in all of you <3
