Dear artists, Please bear in mind that the musical focus of the Nation of Gondwana lies in the spectrum of electronic music. Since we always receive a large number of e-mails from you, we would like to point out in advance that we can not answer every request. Thanks for your understanding!

There will be NO box office & NO day tickets.

Not even for Sunday.

You still have credit on your chip?

To request a refund yourself, » follow this link!

In case of complications, please contact: cashless@pyonen.de

We are of the opinion that the event is not suitable for children. Please organise a babysitter or get help from the grandparents, and treat your little ones to a parent-free weekend.

Please read our Code of Conduct. Abiding by these guidelines is obligatory for partaking.

No confetti!!! Please leave your confetti at home – cleaning up the mess left behind after a few seconds of fun takes a lot of time and is very tedious.

Relevant contact addresses are to be found here

LEAVE YOUR DOGS AT HOME!

Last year we witnessed some pretty bad scenes with dogs that had been brought to the festival and then got lost. This was really stupid on the part of the owners. We feel that this is animal cruelty.

For this reason, we are reserving the right to refuse entry to people who bring their dogs with them.

Find good boarding kennels and treat your pet to a few days’ holiday as well.

The sale of illegal drugs will not be tolerated. Dealers will be evicted immediately.

There will be a large selection of stalls, we pay attention to a moderate price level . The varied offer is mostly vegan & vegetarian, nevertheless, our friends of the volunteer fire department will continue to heat the grill with regional sausage delicacies for you.

Admission is Friday from 11 am. The musical program of the Nation of Gondwana starts at 3 pm.

Open fires are strictly prohibited and will be immediately put out by the fire brigade. Barbecuing is permitted in the area designated for this purpose by the fire brigade.

YOU MUST FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS OF THE SECURITY CREW!

In severely bad weather (with lightning):

  • Exit the dance floor and festival site
  • Stay calm
  • Get in your vehicle
  • Offer other festival visitors shelter in your vehicle
  • Stay away from the forest!
  • Help those in need or with injuries
  • Adhere to any instructions from the organisers

We have developed an extensive Hygiene Concept – please make yourself aquainted with our rules & guidelines. Our FAQs are to be found here.

Participation in the Nation of Gondwana is exclusively at your own risk.

We do not accept any liability for personal injury or material damage suffered during the event or when arriving or departing.

You must follow the instructions of the security staff, fire brigade or Red Cross.

During the event, you can drop off found items at the Cashlesscontainers.

If you’ve lost anything send us an e-mail: lost-and-found@pyonen.de.

Important: Please state in the subject heading WHAT you are looking for, ie. “LOST: black rucksack of brand XYZ”. As we receive hundres of e-mails, this will help us to keep an overview.

We’ll need some time though to view all items…

The Red Cross will be on site with a well-equipped medical tent, ambulance, two emergency doctors and paramedics, and will ensure the availability of medical aid.

Don’t hesitate to approach them or the fire brigade if you or someone else requires help!

Access to the Nation of Gondwana is only permitted to people aged 18 and over. No exceptions!

Who wants to come by car needs a car ticket, all caravans/mobiles need a caravan ticket.

Please pay attention to the announcements of the traffic crew: Entrances, exits and escape routes must be kept clear.
Vehicles parked on the escape routes will be towed away immediately at the owner’s expense. The StVO applies on the grounds!

Attention – in Grünefeld and Börnicke as well as on the country road no cars may be parked!
Who parks the car here, will be towed away also liable to pay costs and must reckon with a high fine!

We believe that partying together doesn’t just mean having fun together, but also – when required – looking out for each other. Specifically, this means looking after and respecting one another, showing consideration where necessary, and even stepping in to help. Please also refer to our Code of Conduct!

We will not tolerate any physical violence or damage to property – any instances will be reported to the police!

Sound, photo and video recordings are strictly prohibited and undesirable – this applies in particular to the dance floors and the beach area!

The personal and privacy rights of our guests are particularly important to us, including the right to one’s own image.

If you want to take pictures, please limit this to the camping area and do not forget to ask for the consent of all persons pictured. We encourage you to turn off your cell phone for a few days.

The network coverage is catastrophic anyway. Dancing is much healthier.

Professional camera equipment will be confiscated.There’s one film and photo team of us on the grounds at a time, faces will be made made unrecognizable. We also have a drone approved by us in use, all others are unwanted and will be collected!

There are bins located all over the festival site. Please use them to dispose of your rubbish.

We’ve noticed in recent years that you tend to mix your trash with glass and PET (plastic) bottles. Ecologically, this doesn’t make much sense. That’s why we’ve come up with something new for this year’s NoG.

We will only accept separated(!) garbage this year. That means glas bottles and PET bottles in one bag and the garbage in another bag. So we also accept a bag of bottles as a garbage deposit.

ATTENTION: We will not reimburse the garbage deposit for garbage bags containing bottles and residual waste. The garbage deposit opens Saturday at 19:00 and ends punctually on Monday at 13:00.

There will be a shower and round-the-clock ceramic toilet area, the so-called sanitary oasis.

You will find another 82 plastic reusable toilets distributed throughout the camping and event area. In addition, there will be a larger number of pissing mushrooms for all standing peeers. These will be cleaned in a 5-hour rhythm.

In addition, there will be a separate FLINTA toilet area near the meadow bar.

Sexual, racist, homophobic, transphobic, anti-disabled or any other form of aggression will not be tolerated at the Nation!

To help those affected, we will be providing a safer space for the first time this year. This will be located next to the Red Cross tent. Members of the safer-space team will also be at various locations on site, and available for you to speak to at any time – you can easily recognise them thanks to their green t-shirts.

PLEASE ALSO READ OUR CODE OF CONDUCT!

There will be two large drinking water stations. One is located on the event area in the back of the Wiesefloor.

The second is directly connected to the sanitary oasis.

Sound systems on the camp site and car park, as well as unregistered sales stands, will not be tolerated and will be removed by us immediately!

Unfortunately, in recent years the toilets, decorations and equipment have been tagged and even spray-painted. Getting rid of the damage was expensive. Anyone caught doing this will be thrown out and charged for the damage caused.

There will be no evening box office this year either! An administrative order has been imposed on us which limits the number of festival visitors. We will adhere to this order.
