Green-minded guests who prefer a bit of peace and cleanliness, can choose the Hurricane Park (Greener Living) Ticket for accommodation on the most beautiful campsite. The neighbours here attach great importance to:
PEACE AND QUIET
Loud voices are taboo here as are noisy souvenirs from the fan mile or booming music players. Cheerful conversation and music making should happen here at noise levels that are tolerable for the neighbours’ camp.
In the Greener Living area the detritus of wealth should not litter the place, but should instead be thrown into the intended containers, which are sufficient in number.
This is important in all spheres of life anyway, but should be emphasised once again: The festival should be as pleasant as possible for all who attend.
Any gross infringements of the prevailing philosophy will lead to offenders losing their access rights, and they will then be redirected to the regular campsite.
Naturally, the pre-erected tents by mein-zelt-steht-schon are also available here.
Waste & Recycling
Give us your litter!
Mountains of litter and a trashed camp – we can do better than that! If you want to save yourself a trip to the recycling station, simply use our festival waste collection service. Every rubbish bag you drop off will contribute to a greener festival and can even help others.
In addition, you will find over 50 rubbish pens spread around the campsite, where you can also dispose of your litter.
Yellow is green
Together with the yellow sack (Rotenburg’s Dual System) we started a trial run for the first time in 2019 and we’re able to achieve an even better waste separation at the recycling stations thanks to your support!
How exactly does that work?
- When you get your wristband you will also receive a yellow sack in addition to your normal rubbish bag.
- You can use it for all your lightweight packaging materials (Green Dot).
- At the recycling stations you will find an extra container where all yellow sacks are collected – just drop them off there.
What is the yellow sack?
- The yellow sack can be found in any household in Germany, where packaging is collected in a yellow sack or yellow recycling bin.
What can go in?
- Lightweight packaging of any kind: aluminium trays/foils, tubes, tins, tetra-paks, biscuit packaging, yoghurt pots, pasta bags, composite and plastic packaging
What should not go in there?
- Camping mats, tents, tent poles, cigarettes, etc.
Please make sure to only place litter in the yellow sack that belongs there. An incorrectly filled yellow sack can make the contents of the entire container useless.
Rubbish is rubbish. Wrong! With the help of sorting processes in professional facilities, some valuable and recyclable materials can still be extracted from festival wastes and fed back into the cycle. To ensure this, we work according to a systematic waste concept and have a comprehensive waste separation infrastructure in place. Together with you, we can remove litter from the site as clean, dry and well-separated wastes.
Tents are not trash! Since tents can be used more than once, we would ask you to please take your own tent home with you.
If you don't need your tent, sleeping bag or sleeping mat anymore after the festival, you can drop them off at the Hanseatic Help booth! The non-profit aid organization uses your donations to help homeless people who have to live on the streets of Hamburg.
You can drop off damaged tents directly at recycling stations or the rubbish pens, where they can be disposed of separately from household wastes.
Abandoned tents are a major obstacle for clean-up operations after the festival, and tent poles and tent cords in particular are extremely difficult to sort.
BagUp – your individual festival bag
BagUp is an upcycling project of our cooperation partner IN VIA Hamburg e. V.: In a Hamburg design and sewing studio, people turn our festival banners into high-quality and weatherproof bags as part of a social project – this means that our festival banners are not thrown away but become an individual accessory for real festival fans! All proceeds go to the social project of IN VIA Hamburg e. V.

Emissions & Environmental Expenditure
Climate protection with atmosfair
Since early 2018, we have offered our touring bands the option of reducing the carbon footprint of their tour vehicles by atmosfair offset projects. in 2019, we took it a step further and now offset all our team’s flights via atmosfair.
All donations will go to projects such as: "Rwanda: Efficient Stoves".
Since 2015, we have focused increasingly on regional and organic providers. In addition, we attach great importance to offering more vegan and vegetarian choices, as well as cooperating with suppliers from the region.
To waste less food you can bring non-perishable and unopened items to the food sharing information booth. Then your food can be donated to the food bank or to other festival-goers.
Food sharing/food bank
"Food sharing – to good to waste!". Food you no longer want to take home with you and that has not yet been opened or is non-perishable can be dropped off or traded at the food sharing information booth. Additionally, you can drop off non-perishable and unopened food items as a donation for the local food bank at any recycling station, at the food sharing tent, or on the day of departure.
