About Southside Festival
The Southside Festival exists since 1999 and has been established as the southern counterpart of the Hurricane Festival in Scheeßel. Over the last years, the festival hosted internationally successful artists, well-known German acts and a big number of promising newcomers alike. Every year more than 130,000 visitors from all over Europe meet at Hurricane and Southside. A success based on the constant innovation of both festivals – for example through new forms of comfortable lodging or the innovation of the supply and food concept. Visitors of both festivals even have their own radio station at their disposal: Beck’s Camp FM broadcasts live from the daily festival madness and is also available online throughout the year.
There are loads of essential things that you will definitely need to take with you to the festival, in order to feel comfortable and ready for all eventualities. We have listed some of these here. Remember that at first you will have to carry your luggage a long way. Sometimes less is more!
- FESTIVAL TICKET
- Tent (don’t forget the pegs!)
- Sleeping bag
- Air mattress/sleeping mat
- Small padlock to secure your tent
- Camping cooker
- Plates, mugs and cutlery
- Tin opener
- Flashlight, batteries
- Car keys/keys to your home
- Mobile phone
- Earplugs (our partner on site is www.alpine.eu)
- Toothbrush and toothpaste
- Shower gel/shampoo
The right clothing is also important. You should be prepared for all kinds of weather. A hat or a cap and sunglasses will protect you from strong sunshine, but you should also make sure to have rainproof gear with you. Remember that it can get quite cold at night, even if it has been scorching hot all day.
There is a wide variety of different kinds of food stands on the festival grounds, but you are also allowed to pack a small lunch packet for the festival grounds.
When camping we also recommend that you provide your own food and drinks. We sell almost everything cheaply at ALDI SÜD, our supermarket!
- Money/bank card
- Driving license/vehicle registration papers
- Personal ID
It is best to keep your documents and your cash in a money belt, so that you can always carry your valuables on your person. Leave any bank cards and keys that you do not need at home, so that they don’t get lost.
You will be allowed to access the campsite and festival grounds only with a festival wristband. These wristbands are issued in exchange for your valid admission ticket at the transit points between the car park and campsite. The site map will show you where your “cash desk” / wristband issuing point is located. If you are part of a group, it makes sense for you to look after each other’s luggage, while the others are collecting their wristbands. The wristband will be attached to your wrist. At the wristband issuing point you will also receive a flyer with the festival programme, the most important information, and the site map, so that you will always know what’s going on (all information and other features are also available from our Festival App). Admission is especially quick if you use our fast lane.
VALIDITY OF THE WRISTBANDS
Admission to the festival and event grounds is possible only with an original festival wristband with an original, undamaged and closed seal! If this is not the case, you are not entitled to be admitted.
The Info Point is located at the entrance to the event grounds. You will receive a site map there, as well as all the important information about the festival. The Info Point also contains the lost property office and much more.
During the festival, lost property can be handed into the collected from the Info Point.
When Southside is all over, many memories, but also lost property remains behind. Over the course of the week the lost property will be sent to the Town Hall in Neuhausen Ob Eck. If you have lost something, you are welcome to contact the town’s lost property office.
Please write an e-mail to the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Describe the item precisely and provide your address and a telephone number where you can be reached.
Please do not enquire by telephone, since the lost property office will be too busy collecting and categorising the lost property from Hurricane. Thank you.
