RESERVATION & FAMILY CAMP
This secluded area gives our environmentally conscious guests the possibility to spend the night in a tidy and quiet area. The area (C5/Green Camp) is located right next to the swimming pool at BlackFoot Beach. In the Green Camp fee included is the flat rate-toilet-wristband, which grants access to all flush toilets (No 'Porta Potty'/portable toilets!) on the camping site. The assigned camping space for each person is 3 square meters. Larger spaces are not available. Entry is only granted with the access authorization form which you get at the check-in on site. Within the Reservation Camp there is another secluded area, the Family Camp which is specifically for families with children.
Please make sure to indicate during the booking process if you want to book the Family Camp, in order for us to estimate the camping space needed.
If you order a hardticket here, you will be sent the original Summerjam collectors‘ ticket.
CAMPING WITHOUT A VALID WRISTBAND WILL NOT BE ALLOWED!
NO TICKET - NO CAMPING!
The 3-day festival ticket also includes access to the camping areas starting from Thursday July 05th from 8.00 am onwards - this means there will be NO additional charges for camping!
Only SUMMERJAM visitors with a valid ticket or a valid festival wristband have access to the camping area! Please take note of the section "Camping Areas".
There is generally no entitlement for the provisioning of a certain camping space.
Wild camping is prohibited and will be rigorously enforced by the police and the security staff!
Every visitor wishing to gain access to the festival - which also includes the park and camping areas - must have a valid access authorization in the form of a festival ticket or a worn festival wristband.
By way of precaution we inform that individuals gaining access to the grounds without such proof of authorization will be prosecuted for acquisition of services under use of fraudulent means (§ 265a StGB, German penal code) and unlawful entry and breach of peace (§ 123 StGB, German penal code)!
Please note: The digging of tent boundaries or the digging of holes in the ground represent damage to property and will be prosecuted by the police and by the security service.
The festival grounds are located in a local recreation area, respectively nature park and are therefore not just fields or an adventure playground. Many thanks for your understanding.

GREEN COLOGNE BAY
“Greener Festival” is a European-wide movement with the goal to motivate guests of large events towards a more ecologically sensitive handling of nature.
The entire waste from the festival is sorted for recyclable parts at a sorting plant. Together with our garbage disposal company and you -our guests- we try to offer you garbage disposal concepts that make collection easy for you and which take the burden off the grounds – see „Garbage“.
Furthermore, for our ecologically aware visitors we offer the Green Camp (C5) – see „Camping Areas“.
The Fühlinger Lake is a nature preserve where we are guests for a weekend. Please collect your garbage and leave your camping site just the way you found it.
We provide an unlimited amount of garbage bags at the entrance and exit areas. You will find "garbage enclosures" on the camping grounds. Please deposit the garbage bags there. We will transport them away from there. Our Camping Security and the Camp Service Stations will always have free garbage bags available for you and will always help you out with advice or anything else you need.
Keep Cologne Bay Clean – “leave only footprints”.
TOILETS & SHOWERS
The CAMP SERVICE stations in all the camping areas provide you with water flushed toilets with 24 hour service. For a single payment of 5.00 Euro (for the whole festival weekend) you can purchase a „flatrate wristband“ and thereby have permanent access to all the water-flushed TOILETS.
Of course the regular mobile toilets ('Porta Potty'/portable toilets) are distributed as usual for free use over the entire camping grounds.
At Service Center P2, showering facilities with warm water have been installed and can be used for a service charge.
