IS THERE FOOD AVAILABLE AT THE FESTIVAL?

Yes. There will be a festival kitchen on site, as well as possibly different caterers selling a variety of produce. There is a small shop in the local area as well, with limited stock.

Food tickets are available separately on the ticket website.

WHAT ARE THE FESTIVAL FOOD OPTIONS?

Menus include full vegan breakfast and dinner for the duration of the festival, made from locally sourced products.

Note that there won’t really be other food options in the surrounding area. Also, in the campsite and festival area, all kinds of fires (including gas burners) are strictly prohibited.

We want to make sure to provide the most convenient way for you to enjoy the festival, without having to worry about what you will eat, so we have worked out a great system: when you buy a food ticket, that will cover all breakfasts and dinners during the festival. Once you arrive to the camp, you will receive a separate food wristband, and all you need to do is show it to the kitchen staff, and your food will be flying to you.

TICKETS AND WRISTBANDS

Tickets will be issued as an E-Ticket, via email.
If you have any issue in finding your E-Ticket, please contact the ticket website.

Bring your festival ticket with you to the festival where it will be exchanged for a wristband. We can also scan your ticket on a mobile phone providing the bar code is clearly visible. The same applies for food tickets.
Your Parking Ticket will be scanned upon entry to the car park, where it will be exchanged for a dashboard label so you can come and go over the weekend.

DO I HAVE TO CAMP?

No. Whilst all weekend tickets include camping as standard, once you have received your wristband you are able to come and go as you wish. So if camping isn’t your thing then feel free to travel up each day.

Larger than 4-person tents and gazebos are not allowed on our campsite.

CAN I BRING A CAMPERVAN?

Yes, but only in the designated offsite parking. Note that there are no facilities provided outside the festival area. You must also purchase a Parking Ticket. There will be no campervan facilities (showers, toilets, wash basin), only an area designated for campervan parking. Please note that this might be a fairly long walk from the campsite.

CAN I BRING A MOTORCYCLE?

Yes. Note that all vehicles are strictly confined to the designated parking area. These include motorcycles, cars, campervans, and any other motorized vehicle. You must also purchase a Parking Ticket.

WILL THERE BE LOCKERS OR A SAFE TO LOCK MY STUFF AWAY?

No. We advise all visitors to keep their personal possessions with their person at all times. The festival does not accept any responsibility for lost or misplaced items.

ARE CHILDREN WELCOME AT THE FESTIVAL?

Of course! WONDEREST is a very family-friendly festival so bring the kids along. Tickets for children under 10 are FREE with a paying adult and can be purchased on our ticketing site alongside the normal festival passes.

IS THERE AN AGE RESTRICTION?

Under-16’s must be accompanied by an adult over the age of 18.

ARE BBQS OR BONFIRES ALLOWED?

No BBQ’s are allowed in the campsite. Bonfires and any form of open fire, including Gas Powered BBQ, Spirit Burners or Cookers are strictly prohibited anywhere on the festival site with the exception of bonfires organised by festival staff.

CAN I BRING MY DOG?

You can bring your dog under the terms that you will take full responsibility for the safety of the dog, other farm animals and festival goers. Note that the camp owners have a male guard dog on the location which might cause conflict with other dogs.

There are farm animals in the vicinity of the campsite, they should be left alone throughout the weekend.

CAN I SPOT ANY BEARS NEARBY IF I’M REAL QUIET?

No bears, just beers. There haven’t been any bears spotted in the nearby area.

Since the festival is located on a mountaintop, surrounded by nature, sightings of other wild animals is possible.

IS THERE WATER AVAILABLE?

Fresh tap water will be available free of charge from taps in the campsite and festival area. For drinking, we advise that you bring a reusable water bottle or cup to align with our zero waste policies.

IS THERE A CASHPOINT ON SITE?

No. Note that there are no ATMs in the vicinity of the festival area.

ARE THERE SHOWERS ON SITE?

Yes, there are showers available at the festival.

WILL IT BE MUDDY?

The majority of the festival area is on a grassy field, including the Main Stage and campsite area, as well as the carpark. All of these areas are open to the elements. So should we have a typical Transylvanian summer, be prepared for a bit of mud. If it rains we will do everything we can to keep things comfortable, but we can’t promise your white T-shirt will leave the same colour it arrived.

CAN I SELL MY TICKET?

We don’t encourage or facilitate the resale of tickets. Please exercise extreme caution when buying or selling tickets on third party websites or from individuals.

HOW DOES THE COVID SITUATION AFFECT THE FESTIVAL?

We are very much planning to go ahead with the originally planned dates between 8-11 July 2021. In case the virus situation hinders our plan, our alternative date is 26-29 August 2021. The same festival passes will remain valid. We are very optimistic given our small size, and being in mid-summer. If we are obliged to cancel the festival for 2021, all festival passes will remain valid for 2022, as well as refund options.

HOW CAN I MEET THE FESTIVAL’S ECO-FRIENDLY GOALS?

Bring your own reusable bowl, mug, water bottle and cutlery with you.
Travel with others. It is not only better for Mother Earth but also cheaper and fun opportunity to socialise.
Avoid single-use items and only pack things you really need.

WILL THERE BE RECYCLING BINS ON SITE?

We operate with a “Leave no trace” policy. There won’t be a possibility to dispose communal garbage on the festival site. However, we will provide paper and metal recycling bins. All other waste is your own responsibility – if you bring communal/plastic waste, please keep it with you during the festival, take it with you when you leave, and dispose of it at the nearest station.
