PHILOSOPHY & STAGES

Welcome to A Summer's Tale! 


A Summer's Tale invites you to take part in an event with selected cultural, active, and creative programs accompanied by renowned local and international artists of all genres in between deep forests, earthy moors, and airy birch groves. A Summer's Tale strives to be much more than just an ordinary open air festival. The idea is to create a world of its own, where you can immerse yourself and experience your own spectacular and memorable summer’s tale. A Summer's Tale therefore offers all visitors a diverse program, plenty of space surrounded by beautiful nature, and a carefully selected range of culinary specialties for every taste bud. Here, the visitors are able to see genre boundaries dissolve in order to experience personalized joy and comfort.


THE STAGES

International bands and artists will perform on the main large concert stage and ensure successful festival happenings. 


The ZeltRaum (tent room) is the most diverse of all stages. It offers concerts, performances, cinema screenings and some other specials during the day.

 

Under an array of proud oaks providing some cool shade, you can experience various performances on the Waldbühne (forest stage). Whether comedy, singer / songwriter concerts or DJ sets - it's definitely worth it to stay here and enjoy a refreshing drink or two.

 

The Grüner Salon (green saloon) provides an intimate atmosphere, which is perfect for all the readings taking place here. Here, you can sit on the grass, listen to the authors, and let your thoughts run free. In the evenings it hosts dancing lessons. 

 

The LuheDeck is like a little oasis. It is a bit secluded and is located on a green meadow providing a wonderful view of the river. You can find plenty of space and tranquility for the workshops and yoga program taking place here.

 

In our The Tale's Café you will not only get really good coffee and fresh pastries! On all days of the festival, bright minds will present their ideas and projects in the series "Perspectives & Portraits".


You can go on an expedition in our new Wissenszelt. There are so many things, you always wanted to know about.


Your taste and mind will get inspired at our new Probiererei. Your taste buds will flourish during our workshops here!

 

... and whoever wants to let their creativity run wild, will be well advised to visit the festival's atelier. Regular workshops for adults and children will take place here, as well as numerous other activities!


OPENING HOURS

The exact opening times of the camping areas, festival bracelets and information on the box office will be published shortly before the festival.

A GREEN SUMMER

A Summer's Tale takes place in the midst of the nature reserve Lüneburger Heide (Lüneburg Heath). It is not only because of our love of environmental issues that we have the ambition to make the least imprint on the surroundings. The more visitors have the same goal, the greener A Summer's Tale will be. In addition to the green efforts that are already included in our festival planning, the following aspects are particularly important to us:

ARRIVAL & DEPARTURE

We would be happy, if you leave your car at home for protecting the environment and keeping the traffic situation around Luhmühlen relaxed. Furthermore, you will save money, co2 and protect the surrounding areas. Feel free to use our offer for cost-free arrival and department with our bus shuttle from Lüneburg station to the festival area.



Electricity

Most of our offered electricity that we are using on-site, is green electricity and made of 100% regenerative energy carriers. 

Trash Collection

With A Summer's Tale we want to realize a festival where the topic of waste management is taken up responsibly by all guests and participants. It is a matter of course for us to respect nature at the festival site and the environment surrounding it. What this specifically means to us and should for everybody participating is:


FOOD

We offer high quality food, mostly from regional and local suppliers, and in part organic products, as well as a wide selection of vegetarian and vegan dishes. We will not entirely abstain from offering meat, but will make sure that a large part of it is supplied from that same region and is organic.

We ask and even urge all of our guests to not throw away or leave the sealed food they brought along to the festival behind - food does not belong in the trash! We ask you to please exchange your cans or similar food with others if you have left over cans that are closed. For this reason we have launched the Food Sharing Project at the info point. Here you can leave all packed and still sealed food left overs and take something new from what others have already left there!


With A Summer's Tale we want to realize a festival where the topic of waste management is taken up responsibly by all guests and participants. It is a matter of course for us to respect nature at the festival site and the environment surrounding it. What this specifically means to us and should for everybody participating is:


  • Use the waste containers / trash cans provided and actively keep the entire area clean.
  • Take all your things back home after the festival ends! This is particularly necessary for re-usable tents, gazebos, chairs, etc. If an object or similar is defective, please dispose of them in the containers provided by us.
  • Please do not use disposable plastic cutlery! It breaks easily, and if it remains in the meadows it is difficult to get it out of there again. This is also the reason that all caterers are not allowed to use disposable plastic cutlery.
  • The same problem exists with the use of glass. In this case, your own safety is also at stake. That’s why glass is prohibited in any form. More information on this can also be found in the festival rules.
  • Basically, please only take what you really need with you. This protects us and nature from piles of garbage and you from serious heavy carrying.
  • Help us to separate the waste at the festival site and after. There will be more information soon!

Cup deposit

At all food stands on the entire A Summer's Tale area there is a cup deposit when buying drinks. This ensures that the cups are properly recycled and not carelessly discarded. However, the cups can also be donated to Viva con Agua.

Environmental certificates

All companies that have been hired for site cleaning confirm their compliance with using only detergents which have been approved with European eco-labels. Also, the detergents used in the shower containers and in the portable toilets are certified with the "Blauer Engel" (Blue Angel).


Ideas and suggestions

If you have ideas, comments or feedback to promote sustainable behavior on A Summer's Tale, communicate it to us in an e-mail to info@asummerstale.de.

YOUTH PROTECTION

Youth participation in the festival is determined by the parents taking into account the Youth Protection Act and the care and custody law. According to the German Civil Code (BGB), parents have the duty and the right to provide for the safety of their minor child (under 18 years). Ultimately, the parents need to decide on the arrival and departure of the festival of their child.

Children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by either their legal guardian who holds the custody and care or have a written permission of their legal guardian ("party note" - DOWNLOAD FORM), a copy of the identity card of the legal guardian, and be in the company of an adult responsible of the child on the festival grounds.

Young people between 16 and 18 years are only allowed on the festival grounds after 24:00 o’clock with a written permission of their legal guardian ("party note" DOWNLOAD FORM). It is required to have a written per-mission and the copy of the identity card of the legal guardian.

Restrictions apply on the disbursement and consumption of alcoholic beverages and for the dis-bursement of tobacco products and smoking. If drunk or smoking children and young people are found during a youth protection control, there is a possibility that they will be sent home under certain circumstances.

HEALTH INFORMATION

Watch out for yourselves! And remember: Noise protection, sunscreen, weatherproof clothing, and don’t forget to drink enough water! Remember, if you dance a lot will need a lot of (non-alcoholic) fluids, especially in summer temperatures. During the entire festival, there will be paramedics ready to take action in case of medical emergency. If something should arise, you will find help in the Sani-tent.

PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES

We want to enable everyone who loves music to visit the festival. Therefore, we put great effort into making the event as relaxed as possible, also for handicapped people. Each year we think about how we can make our festival as accessible as possible to the disabled. That is not always easy, since the festival is located on grass in the open air, and many paths and areas are not asphalted or paved. We are grateful for any comments to barrierefrei@fkpscorpio.com.

camping

We provide some space on the caravan camping ground for guests with a handicapped ID who wish to camp in or beside their car. This caravan area is the only possibility to sleep beside your car. The area is located up to 700m from the festival grounds. The caravan campsite has a disabled-access WC container (with simple shower facilities). 
For this area, a camper van badge is required. You will receive the badge on-site if you have completed the form at the bottom of this page in advance and have received confirmation from us.
If you wish to use the normal camping area or the comfort camping area, we ask you to tick the relevant box in the registration form. We will then reserve a nearby parking space for you, for which you will receive parking permission upon arrival.
If you require constant assistance you may bring along one (1!) person free of charge. Every further companion requires a valid festival ticket.
Please note that we can only check in companions that arrive together with the disabled person, and we can only validate the original tickets at the same time. It is not possible to register a companion or assistant subsequently on site.

REGISTRATION FORM

We will activate the registration form in April 2017. 

wheelchair platform

There is a wheelchair platform right next to the main concert stage. 

Mobile Information service

We offer a mobile information service for disabled people. When you collect your pass we will give you a telephone number, which you are welcome to use if you require information or help during the festival and the info-point is too far away.

Parking

We are also happy to give day guests/visitors without camping the opportunity to park in the immediate vicinity of the grounds. Prior registration is necessary. 

contact / queries

You are welcome to send any questions / comments to us at barrierefrei@asummerstale.de. We can be reached by telephone on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at: 01806- 853 653 (0.20 € per call from fixed lines, mobile charges max. 0.60 € per call).

BAGGAGE RULES

Buggys, handcarts et cetera are allowed at the festival area, when you need them to let your kids have a good time carry the stuff around, that you might need for them (like baby bottles, extra clothes, cuddly toys…). You are not allowed to transport items, which are forbidden in general (see below). Please make sure that your buggys are not standing in the way of other visitors. 


Certain things should not be brought onto the camp site. In most cases these restrictions are very common sense, but we explain some of them nonetheless in short:


The following items are prohibited at the campsite

  • Glass containers in any form! Glass endangers your own safety and that of your fellow beings and is – the shards that is - extremely difficult to clean up from the festival site and from the meadows.
  • Disposable barbecues. The environment would be very grateful, if you just opt out of using these ineffective aluminum barbecues and help eliminate excessive waste. And anyway, barbecuing is much better using the real thing.
  • Liquid charcoal lighters, fireworks and everything else that could cause involuntary fires. Open fires are of course also forbidden
  • Bulky waste or home furnishings, for example sofas and refrigerators. In our experience, these items seem to remain behind on the camp site once the festival is over, so please don’t even bring them along
  • Power generators, generators, car batteries also do not belong to a camp site
  • Stereos, megaphones, and everything else that will annoy your neighbors. Respect your neighborhood
  • Any type of domestic animals and livestock. A festival is simply not an appropriate place for your animal friends
  • Laser pointers, since they represent a danger to your fellow man.
  • Dry ice, as it also increases the risk of injury unnecessarily.
  • Weapons of any kind should not be near a peaceful festival.
  • Everything which is prohibited by law has of course no place with us.

Some things can be taken along to the camp site, but you need to adhere to certain rules while using them

  • We offer high quality and versatile culinary delights that should fulfill most cravings. We will also have a small own festival supermarket with selected products. In other words, we certainly made sure to take care of your cravings! Of course you can also bring your own food. It is also allowed to bring along one palette of beer (24 x 0.5l cans) per adult camper or three liters of any other alcoholic beverages (no glass containers!).
  • It is also prohibited to bring along professional photo and video equipment (unless you have an accreditation). However, taking pictures with cell phones and compact cameras for private use is possible.

SAFETY

A festival site is not an area without laws. The festival has been planned in a mutual effort with the proper authorities and is monitored day and night by the police, the fire brigade and the medical services. In addition we have hundreds of guards and stewards on duty in order to make the festival a safe place and to guarantee that everyone of you can have fun. 
Emergencies can be reported anytime under 112 (please note: anonymous calls can not be accepted) or to any of the guards on duty. You will find guards at the entrances to the camping grounds and to the festival site.  Please do not hesitate to inform the authorities if you discover something strange even though you are not sure if this is actually an emergency. 

Please look after each other and assist those who need help. Our guards, the medical servic staff, the fire brigade and the police will help you. Please do not hesitate to talk to them. 

Risk of stumbling and sharp edges

We do our best to make every square meter of the huge festival area as safe as posssible and to get rid of every possible sharp edge. However it can not be excluded that even though we take the most care in avoiding risks of stumbling and sharp edges we can not find all of them. Therefore we request you to wear appropriate shoes and clothing and to proceed with the necesarry care when entering the festival grounds.  If you find any dangers, please report them so we can eliminate them.

Weather and storm

Sun
One forgets many times to drink enough water when it is hot. This can lead to dehydration, headaches, dizziness and can even cause loss of conciousness. However you can prevent this very easyly by drinking enough water (before you start your day and along the way)! You will find drinking water free of charge at the water stations at the infield and the shower camps. Also please use sun lotion, wear a hat and light clothing that covers your skin to avoid painful sun burn. By the way: Sharing sun lotion gets you new friends.

Rain 
Rubber boots and rain ponchos are practical things on the field. If you should operate things with electrical power on the camping grounds please bear in mind that water and electrical power do not go well together! A cable or plug should never lie in a puddle of water. 

Storm
The safest place during a storm at a festival out in the green is the car.
Extensive analysis on car efficiency have proven that mathematically there are sufficient seats for every festival guest in the cars on the festival grounds. Also for those who arrived using means of public transport. Please offer safehouse in your car to other festival visitors - new friendships guaranteed!

Please avoid forested fields and tress during a thunderstorm! Branches may break, fall down and cause serious injuries.

Please also avoid to stand in the immediate proximity of any erected structures (for example light towers, delay towers etc.). Even though we meet all safety regulations and all structures have been approved by the authorities we can not exclude risks 100%. 

Always close your tents and secure loose objects before you leave for the festival grounds - this way you are prepared. And please for your own safety rather sit in the car on time too often then not at all. 

Thunderstorm 
Count the seconds between lightning and thunder. There is a rule of thumb: As soon as you hear thunder, the thunderstorm is approximately 10 km away. If you devide the number of seconds between lightning and thunder by 3, you get the number of kilometers to the center of the thunderstorm. If the time between lightning and thunder is 3 seconds (or less) you are in imminent danger! 

Please note the following:
• Avoid contact with all electrical conductors and structures.
• Go to your car immediately.

If you are outdoors and you have no way to find shelter:  
• Do not constitute the highest point on a field. Lightning always seeks the highest point in an open area.  
• Look for a basin and squat down with closed legs.
• Keep a distance to trees: Lightning often strikes into trees as they constitute the highest point on a field. As a general rule always keep a distance of at least 10 meters! 
• Stay clear of other people and keep a distance of at least 3 meters. Do not hold hands and keep your legs closed. 

medical emergency

Call 112 – (if you should not own a mobile phone please ask others to make the call or go to the next position of a security guard). 
In case of a medical emergency the medical services will be informed simultaniously. Please be prepared to answer the following questions: 

Emergency call 112: 6 x W = how does it work!
Where is the patient?
What has happened?
Who is injured?
What kind of injury?
Who is calling?
Wait for further enquries!

After that you can do a lot without a diploma in first aid!
1. Watch for you own safety: Watch for your own safety first before you assist others. If there is no danger for your own health start giving first aid. Calm the person down - stay with the person. Injured persons are generally very scared and need the assurance that help is on its way. 
2. Requst others to direct the staff of the medical service to your position. An ambulance or a paramedic is on the way to you. 
3. Erect a form of camouflage or blinds so the injured person does not feel observed by strangers. This is very important for many injured. 

If you should have basic knowledge you can accomplish a lot by following this  

police

Of course the police is present at a festival. A police station has been established on the festival grounds which is operated 24 hours a day. The police is there for you and they will take your reports: Mobile phone stolen? Make a report. Damage to property and/or assault and battery? Make a report. 
If you should need immediate help please always call diretly 110 (please note: you can not make a call anonymously. Abuse is a criminal act)  
Please do not hesitate to inform the authorities if you discover something strange even though you are not sure if this is actually an emergency. It is better to report something rather than not reporting at all. 


Theft
Did you know that a tent does not keep pilferers away? Every year thefts from tents are being reported often even when people are sleeping in them! Therefore: 
a) Bring along as little valuables as possible. 
b) Articles of value do not belong in a tent. Bring them to the official safe deposite boxes. 
c) According to statistics, the theft quote is the highest at the day of arrival and on the day of the opening of the festival at the early morning hours between 3 and 6 a.m.! Especially durning the euphoria of having arrived at the festival no one counts on pilferers. This is when they strike. 

It has happened that during concerts mobile phones and wallets have been stolen in the crowd. Same rule applies: lock the things away that you do not absolutely need or do not bring them to the festival in the first place. Even if the show is outstanding watch for your valuables and especially for persons that stand in the crowd but do not watch the music. 

Mobile phones are often found again. Therefore please report any theft to the police. Even if you only "lost" your phone. Lost property can be handed over at the Info Point and will be stored there. Make sure you check with the Info Point in case you have lost something. After the festival, the community will take on custody of the lost property. On the festival website you will find directions on how to contact the community. 


fire

Please note the following:
1) Please only use approved gas cartridges (otherwise you risk being injured) 
2) No open fire!
3) Make sure your grill is completely extinct before you leave for the concerts.
4) Do not throw away cigarettes carelessly


In case of fire you need to act quickly. 

The longer a fire burns the harder it is to extinguish. Therefore also here: Call 112 first! 

The staff member will direct your call to the fire brigade on the festival grounds. Please prepare to answer the follwoing questions:

Emergency call 112: 6 x W = how does it work!
Where is the patient?
What has happened?
Who is injured?
What kind of injury?
Who is calling?
Wait for further enquries!

After that you can take action yourself: 
Please watch for your own safety: Please watch for your own safety before you assist others. Do neither underestimate a fire nor it´s smoke emission.  If you are sure there is no hazard then prepare for first aid.  
1. Carry injured or endangered persons to a safe place
2. Calming down - taking care. Injured persons are generally very scared and need the assurance that help is on its way.
3. Requst others to direct the staff of the medical service to your position. An ambulance or a paramedic is on the way to you. 
4. Erect a form of camouflage or blinds so the injured person does not feel observed by strangers. This is very important for many injured. 

Please note: 80 % of fire victims die of suffocation from poisonous fire smoke. Therefore never underestimate fire smoke and always be on the look out for your own safety. 


Fire extinguisher


There are many fire extinguishers on the festival grounds. You will find them in every location of the stewards on the festival site, at bars and food stands, with motorized securites, at the shower camps and of course at every position of the emergency services.  If you need to use a fire extinguisher please follow the instructions printed on the unit. Generally it works like this: 
 

evacuation

The safest place at a festival out in the green is the car. Inside your car you are protected from most hazards. 

In the unforeseen case of evacuation you will find various emergency exits on the festival grounds. They are marked on the festival plans.  


The (emergency) exits can be recongized by the generally accepted emergency exit symbols that may, due to the size of the festival, be larger or mounted higher. This is how our banner look like: 

There are numerous emergency exits next to the regular entrances and exits which will be opened immediately in case of emergency. Please make sure you always know where they are. The regular exit might be too far away. 

Did you know that most people run to where the came in even though the distance is much bigger? Make it better: In case of emergency take the closest exit to your position!

If you are requested to exit the festival grounds through the exits and emergency exits please do this calmly and speedy. The more exits are being used the faster the festival grounds are evacuated – it’s that simple! And yes - assist those who need help - not every festival visitor is able to do it on his/her own. 
Please follow the directions of the guards. They have been trained and know what to do. They are on the look out and grant your safety. 


How is an evacuation communicated?
An evacuation is mainly communicated through our video screens and the sound system of the stages. A speaker will explain the situation to you and will ask you to calmly leave the festival grounds and go to your cars. Assist one another and offer safehouse to those who did not travel to the festival using their own car. 


Directions through electronic means:

Festival APP
Here you will be informed by short messages and we will keep you updated on the latest developments. 

Facebook
Here you will always find the latest information, for example if the German weather service has issued an alarm notice for our area. Alarm notices are being communicated already during festival operation so you will be informed timely and can get prepared in case of a thunderstrom approaching for example.

Der Betrieb von unbemannten Luftfahrtsystemen (Drohnen und sonstige ferngesteuerte Flugmodelle) ist auf dem gesamten Festivalgelände grundsätzlich verboten, um im Interesse der Verkehrssicherungspflicht Gefahren für Besucher und Mitarbeiter abzuwenden. Das Verbot bezieht sich auf alle unbemannten Luftfahrtsysteme und Flugmodelle, ungeachtet deren Größe, Gewicht oder Versicherungsschutz. Diese Regel basiert auf gesetzlichen Vorschriften, die Flüge mit unbenannten Luftfahrtsystemen über Menschenansammlungen generell verbieten. Das Festival zählt jährlich mehrere tausend Besucher. Daher gilt das gesamte Festivalgelände (inkl. Camping- und Parkflächen) grundsätzlich immer als Ort mit Menschenansammlungen.

Eine Ausnahme von diesem Verbot ist nur für die Sicherheitsbehörden selbst sowie für den Veranstalter in Absprache mit den zuständigen Behörden möglich, wenn der Betrieb entsprechender Luftfahrtsysteme aus Sicherheits- und / oder Marketinggründen durchgeführt wird.
