Here you find a short info about Subardo Festival to show some useful hints and a couple of rules we find necessary that everyone feels comfortable during the festival.

  • Festival open doors on 11th of August 2023 at 12:00. Music starts at 16:00 on the main stage and ends on 13th of August at 16:00. Please leave the area until 20:00 that day.
  • We do not tolerate any kind of discrimination! If you witness any act of discrimination, exclusion, sexual harassment or any kind of violations do not look away! Get in contact with our awareness- or security-team. Please take also a minute to read our awareness policy.
  • Please respect barriers and follow security instructions. The Security stuff grants for a safe procedure of the festival and has no personal intention to annoy anyone.
  • Please do not bring (your) pets (dogs, cats, etc.) to the festival area.
  • Please don't shoot pictures or make video footage of any other person without their agreement. Further respect the personal rights of images taken. Photographer need an accreditation by the promoter and will be visible as press.
  • The festival is situated in splendid nature and environment. We all wish to preserve that. Please keep the area clean!
  • In August there is most probably a high risk of forest fire! To cook and grill with open flame is not allowed! Please look also after your cigarette butts.
  • Enjoy swimming in the lake for a refreshment! Going into the lake happens on one's own responsibility. Parents please pay attention to your children! There will be no rescue swimmer on site. Please avoid to go into the water by night and help keeping away any person who seems unable to swim!
  • Be careful by severe weather like storm and thunder. Please avoid to stay close by high structures, trees and any water. If you have the option of a car, that would be the first choice to withstand the weather.
  • Please do not climb on any decoration or structures. Do not destroy or steal any decoration! We invest a lot of time and efforts to create it and without that the festival would only be half as nice. Persons getting caught will be held liable for damage incurred.
  • Selling of illegal drugs or narcotics will not be tolerated. Persons getting caught receive a ban of entrance.
  • Area for camping is located on the lawn close to the soccer field. There will be also additional toilets. The organizers may not be held liable for damages and losses that might occur by camping. Camping takes place on own risk.
  • Cars are not allowed on the festival ground. There will be a parking possibility close to festival terrain right before the entrance.
  • It is allowed to bring your own water and non-alcoholic beverages on festival area. But of course we would look forward if you buy some drinks at our stands to support the festival. There will be also food stands offering different types of delicious meals from vegan to some dishes with meat.
  • At the entrance you have to pay 5 EUR as deposit. Therefore you will get a bag where you can collect your garbage during the festival. By leaving the area give it back filled at the entrance and you will get back your deposit. For glasses and leftovers there are extra bins at the entry. Please use them!


My freedom and your boundaries

It is important for us that everyone feels comfortable and safe at Subardo - no matter which elements characterize their identities. Everybody is welcome! For many, festivals are a collective state of the extraordinary full of freedom, joy and exhilaration. However, people might focus on acting out their individual desires without noticing the boundaries of others, dismiss them or ignore them at worst. Inappropriate, undesirable and unpleasant situations could develop which trigger anger, anxiety and helplessness. People are more vulnerable on unknown grounds where one sleeps in tents, home as safe retreat isn't immediately available and the social network which could offer support may not have tagged along. The Awareness team and its retreat is a service of support for persons in distress. They will find a room for rest, with people unconditionally believing their experiences and providing emotional first-aid with the aim to reestablish the ability to act. The Awareness team can be recognized on the festival grounds by purple vests and pink lanyards with the "Awareness" badge. If we spot people who appear to feel uncomfortable, we approach them and ask whether they are fine. Besides, we feel it is important to emphasize that everyone else, be the artists, crew members, guests or service staff are also mobile Awareness teams. We all pay attention to each other and, if necessary, inform the Awareness team of any ambiguous situation or questionable behaviour.

What is most important to us

Children are particularly vulnerable. We made a conscious choice to be a kid-friendly festival. Because they are much closer to the ground, carelessly thrown away things such as straws, cigarette butts and the like quickly become toys that are often put in the mouth. We therefore ask you to use ashtrays and to pay attention to where bags, straws, broken glass and other rubbish are disposed of, not only on the premises but also around your sleeping place. Loud music can damage hearing. However, children sometimes cannot judge this appropriately. We therefore want children to be wearing hearing protection while being on the dance floors or near the speakers. Please let us know if you find children without hearing protection there. Additionally, if you see children standing or wandering around, appearing glassy-eyed and helpless, ask if everything is okay or let us know. Especially when the sun is shining, kids get dehydrated quickly or get sunstroke, both of which can lead to disorientation. Thank you! We do not tolerate open consumption of illegal substances. Any use of substances, whether legal or illegal, affects our cognition, our feelings and our bodily functions. The risk of injuries, poisoning and transgressions are real. If you decide to consume anyway, consider whether your current mental and physical condition, as well as the setting (in the forest, by the lake, away from a safe home, possibly with little/no social support) are suitable. Information about the effects, side effects and interactions of various substances are provided by the drug scouts, for example. Their information flyers are also available from our awareness team. However, it is also important to be aware that a substance might not turn out to be the one it was pitched for.


  • Gamma-Hydroxybuttersäure/Butyric acid (GHB)
  • Gamma-Butyro-Lacton (GBL)
  • Tinkering with drinks that aren’t yours
  • Syringes and needles
  • Harassment, molestation and other bothersome behaviour

The awareness team reserves the right to issue house bans to ensure the safety of visitors.

Offer for affected person

If we become aware of a distressed person our work focuses on the needs of her/him/them. Our goal is not to shed light on what exactly has happened but to reveal what an affected person requires from us and what is currently needed to improve the situation. For people in distress we offer a calm and save retreat. There are blankets, drinks, snacks and other things creating an atmosphere of well-being. Depending on the state and needs of the person(s), we offer closeness or keep our distance. We offer to contact friends, accompany people on a walk, play yoyo, read stories or do whatever else the person(s) might need. Our responsibility is to listen and believe unconditionally. We neither question nor teach, trivialise or put an experience into perspective. Together we consider the options of what could be done next and what could or should be done with the person who has caused the distress. However, we would never talk someone into doing something. All conversations are strictly confidential. Our only aim is for the person(s) to feel better. People of the Awareness team do not have any therapeutic training. However, they can refer to professional programs and support groups if necessary. We hope that our Awareness team contributes to a more respectful and caring atmosphere for everybody to enjoy an even better time at the festival.
