Youth protection

The following guidelines for the access and stay of young people apply to our festival

1.) Children who are not yet 14 years old must be accompanied by a custodian (usually the parents) or a person responsible for their upbringing (a person of full age who has been entrusted with the educational supervision by the authorized person).

Here you can download the form for the educational assignment. Please note the instructions in the form.

2.) Adolescents under 16 years of age are allowed to be present until 22:00. After 10:00 p.m., they must be accompanied by a person with parental authority or a person responsible for their upbringing.

3.) Adolescents under 18 years are allowed to stay until 24:00.

4.) The organizer must take appropriate measures (e.g. announcement, access controls) to ensure that the requirements are met.

Ü16 and Ü18 ribbons

This year there will again be the "16 plus" wristbands at the information booths. Every young visitor over 16 who wants to drink a beer can show their ID at the FEST information booths and will then receive a "16 plus" wristband. The wristband will allow beverage staff to see that the teenager is already allowed to drink alcohol. In addition, this year there will also be "18 plus" wristbands that allow the consumption of cocktails. By putting on the wristbands, you will only have to identify yourself once at our information booths and not every time you stand in line at the beverage booth.

This action is voluntary and serves the protection of minors.
