The shuttle busses will drive continuously throughout the day, departure times for the first bus to the festival will follow later on.

For the first time we will have a limited amount of campervan places available at Liquicity Festival. When coming to the festival with a campervan or caravan, you need an additional Campervan Ticket (59 euros including VAT, service and transaction costs)
With a Campervan ticket you’ll get a spot of 30m2 for 1 camper/caravan/tent trailer/ car with roof tent. A maximum of 1 (front) tent may be added, as long as it remains within the total surface area of 30m2. A 220v power point is available for every pitch within 25 meters. So make sure to bring your own power cable of +/- 25 meters.
The vehicle may only enter once! Driving out and coming back later is not possible. Arriving and departing is permitted during the opening hours of the campsite. The towing car of a caravan must be removed from the campsite immediately after the disconnection. The car can be parked with a parking ticket on the normal parking lot (13.99 euros incl. service costs).
The same camping rules apply to all visitors with a vehicle as to visitors without one. Maximum 4L liquid per person, max 15% alcohol, no glass and sealed. Vehicles will be closely monitored on this one. Consider a somewhat longer check-in time. A filled water tank is allowed (with water, which will be checked).
Please note: only campers, caravans and tent trailers that meet the requirements mentioned in the road traffic act and the vehicle regulations are permitted. Busses, cars and converted vans are not allowed. Is the vehicle longer than 8,5m? Send an email to email@example.com for the additional regulations and the registration form. Cars with roof tents are allowed if the tent can’t be set up without and on the corresponding vehicle. It’s therefore not allowed to place the roof tent on the ground and put the vehicle next to it.
Gas installations with separate removable gas cylinders in campers, caravans and/or tent trailers are not permitted due to fire regulations. Only gas installations with fixed non-removable built-in gas tanks are permitted. For campers and APK-obligatory caravans with such fixed gas installations, a recently (max. 1 year old) APK inspection report must be shown. For caravans without APK inspection that do have such fixed gas installations, a recent (up to 2 years old) gas inspection G607 must be shown. Without one of these inspection documents, it is only allowed to carry small gas bottles (max 190 grams) for single use.
Note: This is our first year, please help us by communicating your arrival time and day. For direct feedback on the festival itself, please ask a member of the camping crew. Camper camping tickets can sell out since the capacity is limited.
