Festival site opening hours
To respect the local residents, both the parking and the camping areas will be opened from 9 am on Thursday, 31.05.2018! Arriving before this time makes no sense, since the entire festival site is closed.
Dismantling, cleaning of own site, waste disposal and departure must be completed by no later than Monday 04.06.2018 at 10 am, when all car parks and the camping area closes.
Camping and arrival

A festival wristband is then put on and the ticket loses its validity. We strongly discourage purchasing tickets on or in front of the festival site! Please buy your tickets only at authorized presale points or (if still available) at the cash desks at Terminal B (entrance B). Please understand that we cannot accept any liability for later complaints or replacement claims.

Children between 8 and 14 years old may attend the concerts only if accompanied by a guardian.
Kids under 16 are permitted to camp only if accompanied by a guardian.

Guardians are generally the parents but not people acting with parental authority (e.g. older friend).
The above rules apply exclusively for concerts and not for any dance events in the area of the event site. The statutory provisions of the German youth protection act (JuSchG) apply.

Please note that will call tickets can only be picked up at Terminal B. In order to pick up your ticket you are required to present your valid ID card and the ticket order confirmation.
The central meeting point is located at the info / service center at Terminal A on the “Große Strasse”. This point is a perfect meeting place in case you lose your friends somewhere on the festival site.
In addition to the meeting point, you will find further information towers / orientation panels with directions and location plans distributed over the entire event area. The two terminals A and B serve as a particularly good orientation aid. In addition to the signposting, feel free to ask the security staff for the way.
Please keep in mind that sweaty concerts and high summer temperatures will dry your body – so don’t forget to drink water! We have installed free water points (drinking water quality) at our shower camps and in the event area.

We recommend you to keep your valuables in safety. Although the camping area is guarded, the organizer accepts no liability for the valuables, luggage and other equipment. There is also the possibility to store prohibited objects in the lockers at the main entrances before entering the event area. So you do not have to bring them back to your tent or car, but you can pick them up again easily after the concerts.

All around Rock im Park
No more than 10 minutes by public transport from the festival site, you will find the historical old town of Nuremberg. If you couldn’t make it there yet you should give it a try, since the city has a lot to offer! For further information, please follow this link: Nuremberg.
There are several leisure opportunities around the festival:
If you need some refreshment and want to go for a swim, there is the stadium bath and the club bath. They also have sufficient showers and sanitary facilities. The exact location of the swimming pools can be found on the site plan.
The lakes are not allowed for bathing because of the mud deposits on the ground. In general, bathing in the lakes is forbidden.
Please pay attention to the signs!
Enjoy a fantastic view up in the air with a ride on our ferris wheel.
Pedal boat hire
The perfect start to a perfect day could be a relaxed pedal boat ride on the Dutzenteich. The exact location of the rental station can be found on the site plan.
In addition to the rock marathon on the stages, we recommend to take the time to learn more about the historical background of the former “Reichsparteitagsgelände” in the Documentation Center. You can find further information about the museum here.
Please leave the camping area as clean as you found it. Last year the vast majority of you helped with cleaning and brought back their full garbage bag - that was great! However, this compliment can’t be pronounced for all festival visitors. Please keep in mind that on the other days of the year the whole festival site is a recreation area for the local residents of the city and additionally habitat for many animals and plants. Especially the shore area and the reed belt is a breeding ground for rare bird species. Damages on the flora (trees, bushes) are immediately reported to the police (property damage). Every pile of trash you leave unnoticed will endanger the location of the festival and negatively affects the environment.
Please make use of the trash bags that are handed out and help the environment with recycling and waste separation.
Please note that we can’t provide a return point for beverage containers with deposit (i.e. “Pfandflaschen”) (except the festival cups).
"Umwelt Rocky" Contest
In 2009 we brought to life the first “Umwelt Rocky“-Contest in cooperation with our partner of Parkrocker. “Umwelt Rocky” is a prize for the tidiest left camping place. And it is such an easy job: Leave your camp site as clean as possible and document and capture the maintenance with some pictures. To take part simply post your photos with the hashtag #umweltrocky on Instagram or in the „Parkrocker“forum.
There are several shops on the festival site where you can find special offers and also buy the official “Rock im Park” merchandise as well as exclusive items. The merchandise can be purchased online at www.myfestivalshop.de.
Additionally, there is a festival market which offers everything you will need.
You’re out of supply? This year you won’t be missing any food and drinks on the festival weekend. In the LIDL RockShop on the “Große Straße” you will be able to buy everything you need and even more. Further information about LIDL RockShop can be found here.
