ARRIVAL / DEPARTURE
The entrance corridors will already open on Tuesday at 10:00 and stay open until 22:00 in the evening. In the night from Tuesday to Wednesday it won’t be possible to access the campsite, but on Wednesday we will open at 10:00 again, this time all the way through Sunday. So all those who wish to arrive a day earlier for SUMMER BREEZE may do so during the 12-hour time window on Tuesday. However, we have to charge those arriving early a 10.- Euro contribution towards logistical costs per person, because it wouldn’t be fair that the additional costs (personnel, rent, etc.) are carried by all campers, but only those arriving early. On Sunday, the site has to be cleared by 14:00. The daily parking lot will be open from 09:00. We will put up signs around the entire Dinkelsbühl area to guide you to the campsite, parking lots and festival site!
PLEASE NOTE: Due to traffic restrictions, it will be impossible for you to leave the campground by car once you have entered it, from Tuesday until Thursday afternoon. If needed, the shuttle bus will give you a lift to the city centre of Dinkelsbuehl free of charge.
On Saturday it will not be possible to access the campsite by car from 18:00. People arriving by car after that time will be diverted to the day parking lot.
In case of bad weather we reserve the right to change the access and parking arrangements at our discretion with the purpose of guaranteeing a smooth flow of traffic. Please follow the instructions of our personnel at all times.
Those traveling with public transport will find a PDF document with all relevant information about bus and train timetables to and from Dinkelsbühl HERE.
All those going to SUMMER BREEZE can take a bus shuttle from the main rail stations / airports in Stuttgart or Nuremberg straight to the main entrance of the SUMMER BREEZE Open Air in Dinkelsbühl. To book your tickets or find more info go to www.mondialevents.de. You may also purchase tickets for the Mondial buses from the Info Point on Saturday from 13:00 to 15:00, regardless of how you arrived at the festival.
Regarding your arrival/departure from the festival please also check under Car Sharing.
After a few questions have been raised regarding the arrival on Tuesday, we would like to offer our advice.
Access to Green Camping / Reserving camping space / VIP Camping / Camping Area for wheelchair users and disabled people (NOT regular camping) areas will happen according to the instructions and maps attached to the confirmation PDFs. If you don’t have these instructions, please contact the member of your group who made the reservation or requested the accreditation first. If this person does’t have the access PDFs either, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
Now on to the most frequently asked questions:
What happens if I haven’t been able to pass the security corridors by 22:00 on Tuesday? Do I have to wait in the car outside the campsite until 10:00 on Wednesday?
The corridors will be open until 22:00 unless all cars haven’t gone through. We will keep checking in cars until there is no one in line any more…
Do I necessarily have to park close to the infield if I arrive on Tuesday? Or can I set up camp farther away if I want to stay away from the noise and the crowd?
We will proceed exactly the same as last year, which means filling the area in the middle of the campsite first and then the sides.
Will their be camping space close to the infield entrance for those arriving on Wednesday or do they just have to camp on whatever space is left?
We think there will probably still be good spots on Wednesday morning, not least due to the fact that we will fill the campsite in a way that both vehicle entrances can be used on Wednesday too.
I “live” in the VIP camp / Green Camp / reserved area / handicapped camp. How do I get there on Tuesday?
Access to the above mentioned areas will happen according to the instructions and maps attached to the confirmation PDFs. If you don’t have these instructions, please contact the member of your group who made the reservation or requested the accreditation first. If this person does’t have the access PDFs either, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
It’s obvious that everybody wants to get the best possible spot on the campsite, but this is just not possible, no matter if we open Tuesday or Wednesday, due to the nature of the operation. It is our goal to live up to everybody’s expectations and to check in over 30,000 people without waiting time and with limited infrastructure (streets, etc.), but it’s not always doable…
Many bands will be holding signing sessions at our partner’s booths of METAL.DE and METAL HAMMER. Please note the scheduled times posted in our running order and at their booths to make sure you don’t miss this unique chance.
DISABLED PEOPLE / WHEELCHAIRS
We are constantly trying to improve the service for our disabled visitors in order to make the festival as comfortable and barrier-free as possible for them.
Seriously disabled visitors with a G (significant walking disability), AG (exceptional walking disability), B (need of constant care), H (helplessness) or BL (blindness) in their handicapped ID will receive a free ticket for their accompanying person at the Check In SV Sinbronn. It’s important that disabled visitors present a valid ticket as well as their handicapped ID with one of the aforementioned marks.
As in the last few years, there is going to be a special platform incl. wheelchair accessible toilet for wheelchair users at the open-air stages.
Please click here for information about camping spaces for disabled people!
VIDEO AND AUDIO RECORDING
By entering the festival site, all attendees agree to be filmed or recorded and that this material may be published at a later time.
BUS SHUTTLE BETWEEN THE FESTIVAL SITE AND DINKELSBÜHL
This year the free bus shuttle service between the festival site and the town of Dinkelsbühl will operate at the following times:
Tuesday – Wednesday: 10:00 to 20:00 – Stop: ZOB (bus station) Schwedenwiese
(Return trips from Dinkelsbühl are possible until 22:00)
Thursday – Saturday: 08:00 to 20:00 – Stop: ZOB (bus station) Schwedenwiese
Sunday: 07:00 to 14:00 – Stop: Schiesswasen
CAMPING / PARKING / CAMPING EQUIPMENT
There will be enough parking and camping space available. You may park your car right next to your tent. Camping is not permitted without the purchase of a festival ticket. Therefore, please make use of the official parking and camping areas.
The daily parking area can be found just across the street of the campsite entrance. You may also park your car in that area while camping on the campsite separately, but wish to make sure you can move your car at any time.
Only vehicles with a weight not exceeding 3.5 tons will have access to the campground. This also applies to caravans and mobile homes. Trailers which can only be towed by a tractor or lorry will not be allowed on the campsite. The same goes for tractors and generally all motorized two wheel vehicles as well as quad bikes, trikes are allowed.
Trailers and campers shall not bring gas cylinders exceeding 11kg. Please make sure your equipment is in good working condition and that you use it in an appropriate way. Any misuse may have fatal consequences. We believe this needs no further explanation.
If you plan on taking a generator with you onto the site, please make sure it is in good working condition and that it is not leaking oil or fuel. A maximum of 20 litres of fuel in an appropriate canister are allowed per vehicle. We trust you will handle this matter in an appropriate way and that it needs no further explanation or discussion. From 1 a.m., all aggregates need to be turned off for nighttime peace.
Camping outside the official camping area is prohibited. Doing so will be fined!
Unfortunately our festival – like most big events – is not immune to pickpockets and thieves. Most of the times it is organised gangs trying to pick your wallets in the crowd in front of the stages. Therefore please make sure your wallets as well as any other belongings are kept safe. Furthermore, please do not leave any valuables or car keys in your tent and make sure to keep your cars and tents locked when leaving. Please also be careful at night, because the thieves are getting more and more audacious. At other festivals they have robbed people by cutting their tents open while they slept. Please don’t hesitate to contact our friendly security personnel in case you see suspicious activity!
The festival site is located about 5 km outside of Dinkelsbühl, therefore we will again provide a bus shuttle running from and to Dinkelsbühl.
Dinkelsbühl itself has numerous attractions and leisure facilities to offer. You can do some shopping in the picturesque medieval Old Town, check out some of the countless cafes, restaurants and bars or visit the indoor swimming pool, as well as one of the last river beaches in Bavaria – the Woernitz river shore. There is also a post office and several pharmacies in town.
DOORS OPEN / ENTRANCE CONCERT AREA
On the three main festival days, Thursday to Saturday, you can access the concert area from 10:00. Bands start playing at 11:00 every day.
On the Warm-up Wednesday the first band starts playing at 13:30 and the concert area can be accessed from 12:00.
At the entrance there will be security checks, so please make sure you only bring drinks in the allowed containers and quantities (a transparent PET bottle of up to 0.5 litres per person or the 0.4 litre SUMMER BREEZE cup) and only the permitted photo cameras.
Unfortunately all prohibited items must be confiscated and discarded.
Other items NOT allowed in the concert area include:
All kinds of weapons and knives (including clasp knives), all kinds of glass, film cameras and audio recording equipment, selfie sticks, flagpoles and staffs, as well as all kinds of pyrotechnic items, gas horns, musical instruments and similar.
FIRST AID / MEDICINES / RED CROSS
On the festival site there is a big first-aid centre run by the Bavarian Red Cross (BRK). There will also be emergency stations at every shower station. The BRK will also be covering the campsite with mobile squads and vehicles. The locations of the BRK can be found on the site map. There are refrigerators at the medical center (near the entrance to the campground) where you can store your medicines over the course of the festival.
Emergency number: 0049 981/93980040
FOOD / GROCERIES
It is allowed to bring food onto the campsite without limit.
ATTENTION: Glass is absolutely prohibited on the entire campsite and concert area! Please fill you food/drink into permitted containers.
We will obviously provide you with the opportunity to buy refreshments and food. Stands can be found throughout the entire site. You may bring your own drinks (for your own use only) to the campground. You may only take a tetra pack or a plastic bottle of up to 0.5 litres per person or a SUMMER BREEZE 0.4 ltr mug with you onto the concert area.
There is a large variety of vegetarian and/or vegan food at the festival and campsite. There are several recommended vegetarian/vegan food stands both at the main stages and at the T Square. In addition to the stands there is also the possibility to order vegetarian and/or vegan food at the other stands, for example Asian, pizza, local vegetarian specialities, Dutch fries, etc. In the big supermarket at the barn there are vegan products available, such as soymilk, vegan cold cuts, etc. Fresh fruit is also available there. Just ask at the supermarket…
Unfortunately the choice of gluten-free products in our supermarket and at the food stands is limited. Therefore we recommend you add gluten-free bread etc. to your camping provisions. Some of the food stands offer the choice of having their dishes “breadless” in order to avoid gluten. We also recommend O.S. Nutrition (on the Battlefield). Furthermore there´s the dolle Knolle (great potato) close to the Green Camp and the Dutch fries (T-Square).
FIRE / GRILLS
Open fire is strictly prohibited throughout the entire camping and festival site. Camping stoves and barbecue grills are allowed. All grills and stoves MUST be set up on their corresponding stands on firm ground. Coal trays must not be in contact with the ground. Due to some serious accidents which have resulted in life threatening injuries, we expressly urge you to exercise extreme caution when using fire starters to light charcoal barbecues! Oil lamps are not allowed on the festival site! The same applies to firewood and cressets!
ARRIVAL IN GROUPS / SAVING CAMPING SPACE FOR FRIENDS
Please follow the instructions of our personnel, so the filling of the saved space hopefully works quickly and without problems.
Ideally you should always keep right with your group when arriving (even before the security corridors); try to use the corridors on the right as well, and stay right when driving onto the campsite. (Our tip: Meet at a parking on the Autobahn before the exit to Dinkelsbühl and then drive together as far as possible.)
Additional advice for drivers of large vehicles (e.g. mobile homes) or cars with trailers (including caravans):
Please also try to keep right, as the corridors on the far right are wider and will be easier for you to pass through.
Motorcyclists are also asked to use the corridors on the right, as they are closer to the motorcycle parking lot.
LOST AND FOUND
In case you find lost property, please bring it to the infopoint. If you have lost something, please get in touch with our staff at the info point, too.
From 2:00pm on Sunday – when the info point is closed – found items will be kept at the box office area on Black Earth (car inspection area) and may be collected from there. Uncollected items will be transferred to the official lost and found office in Dinkelsbühl during the week after the festival.
The site map for SUMMER BREEZE Open Air can be found HERE.
CASH MACHINE / ATM
There will be cash machines on site, located close to the band merchandise. The charges for cash withdrawals will be displayed at the machine. You can also find the exact location on our site map.
BAN ON GLASS
There is a ban of glass at Summer Breeze. We will strictly check each car entering the site. Our security will also check the camping grounds during the festival days. Please have understanding and avoid bringing any kind of glass containers.
This includes all food and drink containers made of glass, regardless of the use they are given (e.g. tobacco in a preserving jar). Due to the high accident and fire hazard, oil (kerosene/paraffin) lamps are prohibited too! Perfume flacons, medicine bottles and shishas are allowed.
Best thing to do is to pour all liquids into plastic containers. Please take this issue seriously – otherwise we will face massive problems in getting access to appropriate camping grounds in the future!
Find all information about GREEN CAMPING here.
From Tuesday on, there will be an official infopoint close to the concert area entrance. It will be open daily until 01:00am, Sunday 02:00pm. If any changes should occur during the festival, we will announce them there immediately. Also, should you have any problems, questions, criticism, complaints and so on, you can approach our staff. Please also go to the Infopoint should you lose or find anything. There are earplugs available at the infopoint.
There are two big merchandise stands at the concert area: one for the official festival merch and another for the band merchandise of almost all of the bands appearing at the festival. Both stands will be open from Wednesday on. On Tuesday there will be a merch station on the campsite for all those arriving early. It will be located next to the beer garden close to camping section D. Only the main festival design will be sold here.
The costs of garbage disposal have grown dramatically over the last few years. One more reason to ask you for your kind help to address this situation.
We will provide garbage bags when entering the site. We have taken your criticism to heart and will make garbage bags available at the Shit ‘n’ Shower Stations from now on, so in the future you will only have to walk a few meters when the garbage bags handed out at the entrance are full. We hope this will have a positive effect on the garbage situation on the campsite, which in the last few years was somewhere between horrible and catastrophic…
Thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding. Since in the last few years some people have brought enough furniture to fill an entire living room, and disposing of one piece of furniture is more expensive than the price of two to three tickets, we will have security guards checking the camping grounds and taking pictures. So those who bring furniture and leave it behind will be charged an additional fee for waste disposal and each case will be taken to court.
Please also make sure you keep your camping space tidy during your entire stay in your own interest. You can leave the full and sealed bags next to your camp so our staff can pick them up easily.
Please make sure you do not leave any metal items such as tent pegs in the ground, as this presents a serious problem for us.
MUSIC ON THE CAMPGROUND / NIGHTTIME PEACE
Music and party on the campground are essential parts of the festival, but please be reasonable and respect your neighbors. We´d like to remind you to shut down your generators at 1AM to reduce the noise.
ZELT DER KIRCHE
In order to park a motor vehicle on the campsite, a parking ticket must be purchased per vehicle. This ticket is only sold on site. The price for a parking ticket is € 10.- per vehicle.
There is also a charge to park on a separate day parking lot.
The above applies to all motor vehicles with an internal combustion engine (i.e. cars, motorcycles, caravans, etc.).
Those arriving on Tuesday must pay an extra 10 Euro contribution towards logistical costs per person. You can purchase your parking tickets from our parking ticket sales team, who will be located between the festival bracelet collection point and the security control corridors. That means, first you go to exchange your ticket for a festival bracelet and then you buy the parking ticket for your vehicle at the entrance to the security control corridors.
RETURNABLE BOTTLES AND CANS
This year we are again collaborating with the Aalen-based NGO Govinda Entwicklungshilfe e.V. Please support them by putting your empty returnable bottles and cans into the bins they place on the festival site. This way each of you can decide how much you wish to support Govinda.
Govinda volunteers will also be out collecting empty returnables. They will be wearing coloured Govinda shirts and an identification. Should anyone identify themselves as returnables collector or collect returnables unasked, please inform the staff at the Govinda info stand near the entrance to the festival site or at the sorting station close to the security camp. There you can also donate your returnables or just stop by for a chat.
Unauthorized collection of returnables is not permitted on the festival site!
The main police station is near the entrance to the campground.
Emergency number: 110
The police considers the whole festival ground, including concert area, campsite and parking area, as public roads. Please keep this in mind when driving on the festival site (no drugs/alcohol, only registered cars, etc.) and behave as if you were driving on an open street. The police will be there to enforce traffic laws.
They will be testing for drug and alcohol abuse as usual. We will not clear the daily parking lot so you may stay there overnight. The police controls on Sunday will definitely happen.
This year we will obviously offer our popular SUMMER BREEZE programme brochure on site for a contribution towards expenses of just 1.- Euro. In it you will find all information about the festival, as well as all the bands. Furthermore, of course, the running order, the site map and a raffle with prizes worth several thousand Euros. It is also perfect to get it signed by the bands during their signing sessions.
You can purchase the programme brochure at the following locations:
– at all three supermarkets on thew campsite
– on Tuesday at the merch container next to the campsite circus tent
– at all official merch stands
– at the official band merch stand
– at the infopoint on the infield
– at the Check In SV Sinbronn
Racism will not be tolerated! Hereby we once again would like to state we are strictly against any form of right-wing philosophy or racism. We also count on your help: if you come across anything, please inform us immediately! Either approach security or go to the info point on site.
RESERVING CAMPING SPACE
Information about the additional camping option RESERVED CAMPING SPACE is available HERE.
The running order with all the bands’ exact stage times is available under “Bands”. You´ll also find the timetable for the signing sessions there.
SEVER WEATHER / BAD WEATHER / STORM / CLEARING / EVACUATION
Every measure taken in such case is for your own safety!
In case the infield needs to be cleared, stay calm and get in your cars, where it is usually the safest.
Especially in case of severe weather or storm, we reserve the right to change the arrival and parking process as needed.
In case it is necessary to clear the infield, we urge you to follow the instructions of the security personnel and emergency services. Please also mind the announcements through the PA, as well as police, fire brigade and emergency service announcements. In the unlikely case of evacuation, the whole site (this is, including the campsite) has to be cleared. Please follow the instructions of the security personnel and the emergency services in this case, too, and mind the announcements in German and English.
You´ll find lockers close to the concert area entrance. You can book them in advance: Click here!
SECURITY / CREW
The security office is located in the middle of our camping area. Find the exact location on our site map.
You can reach the office via: 0049 (0) 981/93980040
You can also easily contact the security crew through our infopoint.
Our securities will be wearing numbers so they can be easily identified, please remember the number to review any kind of situation we have to settle. However, generally speaking, the securities’ instructions have to be observed and followed without question to ensure a smooth event.
Anything you might need to survive this festival weekend can be found in our supermarkets, which are marked on the site map, for reasonable prices.
Big supermarket in the barn: Open permanently from Tuesday 10:00 to Sunday 10:00.

There will be various free water stations where you can fetch fresh water for cooking and washing.In order to guarantee the proper use of the water we have available, we have to ban inflatable pools.
