Covid-19 & our Hygiene Concept
Dearest Parallel-World Tourists,
It is with great pleasure that we announce today that we have all the necessary permits and that the Nation of Gondwana 2021 can take place as a model project in the state of Brandenburg – Kite & Crane are going into the landing approach!
The two events will be scientifically accompanied in order to gain important knowledge about the realization of open air events under these extraordinary
pandemic circumstances. Don’t worry, your personal data will remain safe with us and all research will be completely anonymous. The knowledge gained will be used to pave the way for comparable open air events with a hygiene concept in the near future.
We will meet again at the end of the rainbow – but of course there is a catch.
IF however the incidence at the time of the event in the district Havelland and/or Brandenburg 3 days should be over 100, we will have to cancel!
So please continue to behave mindfully and in solidarity, because there is bright light at the end of the tunnel!
You will receive further pyonistic parallel world mailings with important information about testing and travel in the next weeks.
What will change in 2021
As you know, we will be celebrating the Nation of Gondwana in a small way on two consecutive weekends this year!
(I) 16-18.07.21 Milan
(II) 23-25.07.21 Crane
Each ticket will be personalised at the time of purchase. This is the only way we can correctly allocate tests and reliably trace contacts in case of doubt.
For reasons of hygiene, travel to the event must be organised differently this year. There will be no public transport or shuttle buses, as we want to form as small a cluster as possible. It will only be possible to get there by car or bicycle.
Therefore only the following tickets will be available in a bundle, it is not possible to buy a single festival ticket.
Option (I) Car – Bundle
1 car ticket
+ 1-5 festival tickets
Option (II) Bicycle – Bundle
1 bike ticket
+ 1 festival ticket
Please carpool well in advance before buying a car bundle!
Compulsory PCR tests are the core of our hygiene protection concept. We have organised various partner testing stations nationwide for this purpose.
A current list of all PCR test stations with opening hours can be found here. When you arrive at the festival, the PCR tests must be no more than 48 hours old and should be carried out around 30 hours beforehand.
The test capacities will be increased for you especially in Berlin from Wednesday to Friday before Milan & Kranich.
After you have purchased a ticket in advance, you will receive a PCR test voucher. With this voucher, you go to one of our nationwide partner stations 48 hours before the event at the earliest and (30h latest) get tested. Your ticket for the Nation of Gondwana 2021 will only be generated after a negative result. On site, you will go through two more test stages before you can enter the field.
We will of course implement further hygiene measures at the event site. Check out the short version of our concept. Satisfy your curiosity via the FAQs.
We recommend all reality escape helpers to read both carefully before buying a ticket!
And in a few weeks, when we can almost hear the wing beats of Milan & Kranich, we will answer further open questions via an online Q&A.
You’ll find out the date in good time via the Pyonistic Parallel World post.
Finally, a hint: the presale for Milan & Kranich starts on 30 April 2021 at 12 o’clock!
At the same time we will also publish the respective line-ups. Tickets are limited, as usual, to be purchased via TixforGigs. The ticket price will increase due to the extensive testing measures, as all testing costs are included in the ticket price.
There will be more details in another Pyonistic Parallel World mailing next week (you can register here).
Finally, we would like to appeal to all parallel world tourists once again: only if we all keep our feet still for a while can Milan and Kranich start their landing approach!
Stay healthy & in solidarity,
FAQs – Frequently Asked Questions
After purchase, you will first receive a test voucher, the festival ticket will only be generated after a negative PCR test and sent to you by email.
No, only online via TixforGigs.
Good news – there will be a significantly higher contingent available.
We are very happy if you would like to travel with us directly to the parallel universe twice! Unfortunately, you have to leave the field between the two events and go through the testing procedure again when you arrive.
Please act in solidarity and quarantine yourself until you leave for your journey.
If the result is negative, you will receive your festival ticket by mail.
In the unfortunate event of a positive decision, you can return your ticket via TixforGigs and get your money back.
This is extremely gratifying! Then you do not have to take the PCR test!
Please take care of a digital vaccination certificate via the CovPassCheck or CoronaWarn app!
The PCR test can be bypassed by uploading a valid vaccination certificate from the CovidWarn app or from the CovPass app (just take a screenshot) to the ticket. To do this, please call up the link from the personalisation email from TixforGigs.com again and use the upload function (vaccination certificate -> digital proof of vaccination) on the page. If you no longer have the link, you can also send your certificate to the ticket buyer(s) so that they can take care of the upload (can be found after logging in at www.tixforgigs.com -> My Orders -> Personalisation).
The upload option will be available from Saturday, 03.07.21. The vaccination certificates will be processed by TixforGigs and – like all other personalisation data – automatically deleted after four weeks.
Please take this opportunity to check your e-mail addresses again and, if necessary, tick the box for sending SMS.
Yes, this is generally only possible via TixforGigs.
Unfortunately, this is not possible this year for hygiene reasons, travel by public transport is not supported and there will be no shuttle buses!
Yes, it’s annoying and not very environmentally friendly but it helps us to keep clustering to a minimum.
We recommend that you talk to your friends and acquaintances as early as possible to buy a car bundle together.
Oder reist völlig emissionsfrei mit dem Fahrrad an!
Shortly before entering the event area, each person of a carpool will be tested in the car. If the result is positive, the car or the entire carpool must leave the premises. We are currently working on another possibility of PCR testing after a positive rapid test.
Yes, an FFP2 mask is compulsory! It must be worn during the entire journey plus the upstream quick test! In addition, masks are compulsory in the toilets, during the ordering process at the bars and at the food shops.
We open our doors every Friday from 10:00 am.
No, we will celebrate in our usual manner! Nevertheless, we will adjust to the smaller number of guests at one point or another.
In short: Yes, but then you cannot return to the festival.
You must have left the field by 12 noon on Monday at the latest, there are no exceptions here!!!
No! You will be refunded the ticket price, minus the service fees and a small solidarity contribution.
Yes – as in 2019, we are completely dispensing with cash! This is also beneficial in terms of infection control.
No, due to our complex hygiene concept, it is not possible to arrive by taxi, as the risk of infection is too high. Access to the grounds is only possible by car or bicycle.
Due to the three-phase testing, it is possible to dance on the dance floor with distance and without a mask.
No, that is not possible. No one is allowed on the premises on foot!
These will be deleted immediately after four weeks.
After transmission of the test result, the sample is destroyed and the data deleted.
No, this jeopardises the consistent and safe implementation of our intake and test logistics in terms of the hygiene concept!
Unfortunately, we can’t help you there, but your local garage probably can.
No, even in a hypothetical or purely theoretical case – No!
A car ticket.
No, our first weekend from 16-18.07.21 may resemble the beautiful Milan in name but of course we will celebrate on the most beautiful field in Brandenburg.
No, the Bassliner rides can be booked independently of the bundle. All passengers of the minivans form a new carpool. The same applies here – if a positive case occurs during the antigen test, all passengers will be denied entry!
The Bassliner trips have been created at short notice as an additional service due to the numerous requests for travel information. Bicycle or car tickets can be passed on to friends or will unfortunately be forfeited. A refund is not possible!
Yes, it is possible to book only one round trip.
Yes, of course, you have to wear a FFP2 mask throughout! The van drivers are also PCR tested.
The additional offer of Bassliner trips is also subject to compliance with our hygiene concept. We cannot logistically implement additional trips!
The personalization can also be managed by the ticket purchaser up to the PCR test itself. To do this, simply log in to www.tixforgigs.com and change the relevant ticket in the customer area under “Personalization”. If necessary, you can change a mail address and send the mail out again for personalization. It is important that the mail address and phone number are also changed, because the festival ticket will be sent to the stored mail address.
