You can leave your car in the parking area.
The camping area is only for camping.
Please don’t bring any personal sound-system, music is on the stage for you, camping is for sleeping and relaxing, respect those around you.

Get familiar with all the areas (stage, food, market, healing, bar, camping site, etc.), then go have some good fun on the dancefloor surrounded by majestic trees and mountains which are there for you.
We have free fresh spring water for everyone, just look around and enjoy it.
Try to leave behind Shankra Festival a positive trace by cleaning the ground, collecting your own garbage and throwing it in the indicated places.
Use pocket-ashtrays, and if you lose them, please don’t throw cigarette buds in the grass, they it takes two years until they decompose and and they are hard to pick up!
Use toilets. Don’t go all around the forest. Try not to leave tissues or tampons around.
A clean crew will be here to help us keep the Shankra Festival site clean.
Members work as volunteers, so you can make their job a lot easier if you don’t leave a mess in the areas.
When in need, you can always ask them for extra garbage bags.
