The First Aid Post is located near the Central Post.

Dogs are allowed but the dog should always be kept on a lead at the location. You have to clean up after your dog(s) because except for the event the location is normally used to herd cows. Cows can become very ill because of dogpoo… So please only walk your dog in the designated places.

Yep. We provide a horeca location in an English pub atmosphere.

Q: Can I make photo/video of the event?

Yes, for your own use.

Q: Can I make recordings with a drone?

No, because of the (air) security policies and for protecting the privacy of fellow festival attendees, flying with drones and making pictures with drones is not allowed.
Only the organization has a permit during the festival.

Q: Can I make a fire?

Since we stay close to the National Park Veluwe, we have to be extra secure to nature fires. Regulation can be changed due to another fase of possibilities of fire hazards. 
Hereby the regulation in normal situation, fase 1.

A small fire is allowed, only if there is a closed dish at the bottom of the fire. The estate Middachten doesn’t want to have any ash or embers touch and damage their grass.
When lighting a fire, it has to be high enough above the grass to ensure this. Closed stoves and heaters are allowed as long as they follow the guidelines above. Gas stoves and charcoal BBQs are also allowed. For the embers and ash residue there will be a special metal trash bin.

During the event, there could be changes to the rules in case of environmental changes and added fire hazards. If this were to happen, the fire department and the safety coordinator/ head of the event will keep you informed.

Everyone who wants to start a wood fire needs to make sure they are aware of the rules active at that time.
Firewood can’t be taken from the nearby woods and is something you have to bring yourself.
The distance between any fire and sleeping accommodations needs to be a minimum of 2 meters at all times.
With every fire and bbq, you will need to have an adequately sized bucket of water or sand as a means of extinguishing the fire.

Q: Can I use my Quad to travel on site?

No, due to safety reasons Quads and mini bikes are strictly prohibited on the festival site.

Q: Electricity is not guaranteed, can I bring my own resource?

Although we try to provide all the camping places with electricity, we can not guarantee the availability everywhere. Solar panels and (small) windmills you can place at your campsite are welcome, provided safety is not at risk and they don’t cause nuisance to other participants. Generator sets are not allowed.

Q: Can I arrive earlier or depart later than given times?

No, related to planning and preparation of the festival grounds it is not possible to deviate from scheduled times.
