Festival site opening hours
To respect the local residents, both the parking and the camping areas will be opened from 9 am on Thursday, 04.06.2020! Arriving before this time makes no sense, since the entire festival site is closed.

Prohibited / permitted items
Our safety concept consists of a large number of safety-relevant procedures, which are developed, coordinated and implemented together working hand in hand with the police and the responsible security authorities. Additionally, we are in constant exchange with other festivals.
However, we still need your help in this matter!
The better the festival visitors follow the rules and regulations, the more effective and faster are the security checks at the entrance to the camping area and to the event area. We ask you therefore to read our detailed safety instructions.
Prohibited items on the camping area are among others:
ATTENTION! Carrying such items may result in rejection of the vehicle and exclusion of the attendee from the festival upon arrival; all the prohibited items will be confiscated without replacement. Power generators found on the site will be secured by the police!
Permitted items on the camping area are among others:
Additional prohibited items in the event area:
In addition to all prohibited items in the camping area, the following applies in the event area
Generally, prohibited items are: bags, backpacks and containers of all kind. The only exception being small belt bags.

Code of conduct
Our rules for a peaceful togetherness:
1) We take care of each other. We help other festival visitors, who need help, and do not look away.
2) We respect others as they are. No shaming. No matter if body, appearance or gender. We treat them the way we wish to be treated: Respectful and kind. We don't laugh at anyone and don't judge others.
There is no room for sSexism, racism and any form of intolerance at our festival. We love you - whether black or white, gay or lesbian, male, female or transgender - you are all welcome!
3) We respect nature.
4) We live sustainably and avoid waste.
Rock im Park - No stage for discrimination!
We do not tolerate any discrimination against people based on their nationality, skin color, gender or sexual orientation!
What may be just a lot of fun for some people can be very hurtful or even scary for some people.
Sexism is not always obvious or easy to name. Often there is initially only a vague discomfort or a feeling of injustice. Whether in public space or in the family - respect must always be a basic requirement for dealing with one another.
It is therefore important to show courage and to contact the security team in such situations to report “unacceptable, intolerant behavior”. No matter whether as an affected person or an observer!
Finally, we would like to emphasize that what we don't need is a racist sexism discussion.

Please always keep in mind that the event area is a habitat of many animals and plants (further information here) and also the terrain is a local recreation area for the residents of the city of Nuremberg on the remaining days of the year. Many families with children, senior citizen and athletes enjoy their time in the urban greenery. Please take particular care to the sensitive lake shore zone and the reed belt! There are breeding grounds of rare species of birds.
Damage to the flora (trees, shrubs) and endangering or even torturing animals is reported immediately and without exception to the police and lead to the immediate and permanent exclusion of the event. Every garbage mountain that you carelessly leave behind endangers the location of the festival and represents a real danger for the animals living here. Please report violations immediately!
We count on you!
Please leave the camping site as you found it! Although there is no garbage deposit, we kindly ask you to work actively for the sake of the environment. A garbage deposit is no longer charged because the associated offers and obligations were not sufficiently exercised and the often misused garbage bags caused an additional 13 tons of plastic waste. Uses the numerous containers and containers for disposal, which we provide within easy reach and keep your own area clean during the festival
Please do not hinder the cleaning and give up your deposit every day. Various local charities are also happy to receive your deposit!
At the same time, we are increasing our efforts for a clean festival and environmentally friendly waste disposal.
Our food partners have not used disposable plastic for years. Only recyclable cardboard, wooden cutlery, parchment paper, napkins and bread rolls are used to serve meals.
We regularly check other alternative packaging and compare new products in this area with our current solutions.
We also use reusable solutions in the beverage sector instead of (single-use) plastic - reusable cups have been used for drinks for many years.
Since 2018 we have also stopped using plastic straws and in 2019 we were now able to use a reusable cup for hot drinks.
Due to the demanding logistics on site, the garbage separation does not take place at the festival, but takes place mechanically after assembly from the festival site using assembly lines. In this way, 80% of the total waste volume from 2019 could be recycled, this means fully recycled. The remaining 20% was used for energy recovery (waste incineration) due to the high organic content (mixed waste / household waste). This means that the proportion of recyclable festival waste in 2019 has been pleasingly high.
With around 80,000 festival visitors in a limited area, it is also clear to us that garbage cannot be avoided on site in principle. However, every festival guest contributes his share to the resulting amount. Do not be the ones who only point a finger at others, but become active yourself and lead by example.
Help to avoid waste and in particular to avoid products in plastic packaging and otherwise unnecessary packaging waste.
Through their own behavior, everyone can contribute to avoiding unnecessary waste. For example, do not use disposable plastic plates or cups and disposable plastic cutlery at the campsites.
Cheap tents and pavilions are particularly attractive with their low prices. Here, however, resort to durable, more sustainable products that are made from more environmentally friendly material and are hard-wearing so that you can use your equipment for several years.
Please take all your camping equipment with you on departure and bring broken tents / pavilions to the garbage collection points.
"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 will be awarded by Parkrocker in 2019 again. 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.
For further/more information go to www.parkrocker.net.
