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.
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!
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!
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!

WEAPONS / VIOLENCE
Up until now, SUMMER BREEZE has not experienced any violence – and we would like it to stay that way. Anyone looking for trouble or damaging property, inside the fencing or beyond, will be kicked out! Please have the courage to interfere or inform security if someone starts trouble or harasses women.
Weapons are prohibited on the entire festival site! There should be no need to explain why. The list of prohibited items can be found under PROHIBITIONS / PROHIBITED ITEMS & CONFISCATED ITEMS.
