Festival Area

Camping and Accommodations

There will be plenty of free camping options available.

For this purpose we are setting up 3 areas: Below the festival area camping at the car will be possible, besides the festival area only camping, without car.

Please remember to dispose all of your garbage. We are located near a nature reserve and accordingly have a special responsibility.

Covid-19 Restrictions

Based on past experience, we expect to be able to perform the BOA 2023 without official COVID-19 restrictions as well. So there is no mask obligation or distance obligation, nor is there any testing obligation. Nevertheless, we would like to ask you to implement the following precautions:

  1. Voluntary testing before and after the event
  2. Regularly disinfect your hands (you will find dispensers with disinfectant on the festival area).
  3. In case of a positive test or the occurrence of typical symptoms of illness, please follow the legal requirements and stay at home!

We thank you for your cooperation! Should there be any changes to the current state, we will of course let you know.
