Your first time at splash!

Your first time at splash! festival?

Welcome to the splash! family! We can't wait to spend unforgettable moments with you between campsite and moshpit. Also known as the 'class reunion of the hip-hop scene', the splash! Festival is a unique short getaway with everything your heart desires.

In order to make your first splash! experience as relaxed as possible, we have put together a small guide with the most important information. 

Of course, you can also get more detailed information in the info and FAQ section on our website.



The first thing you need to do is to purchase the right ticket. Tickets are available exclusively in the ticket shop on our website. 

Your weekend ticket is the base.  

With this ticket you will have access to the camping site and the festival area for the whole festival weekend and you can visit the live program.  

You can choose between the regular weekend ticket, the comfort or the premium weekend ticket, depending on where you want to camp and how much comfort you want to enjoy during your splash! weekend.

In addition, there are various add-ons for glamping, the pre-party which will take place a day before the festival as well as parking tickets, which you should book before the limited contingents are sold out. You can find out which tickets and add-ons are right for you with the help of this overview:

On our website, you first buy your weekend ticket, and then the corresponding add-ons.

Your ticket will be validated after your arrival at splash! and exchanged for a festival wristband, which will serve as your ticket for the rest of your stay at the festival. Service Post: Please download your tickets before your arrival at the festival. Nothing is more annoying than not being able to access the ticket due to bad network connection on the festival site 🥲.

Please note that both the tickets and the festival wristbands are personalized and therefore non-transferable.



At splash! Ville, you and your friends can spend the night in style in high-quality cotton tents that have already been set up for you or in one of the coveted cabins.

If you buy a glamping offer, your ticket will automatically be upgraded to comfort status and you can enjoy many other benefits such as a barbecue area, a chill-out area, fast lane entry to the festival, etc. You can find more information here.

If you don't have camping equipment, you can also book one of our partner services under "Additional services". You can find all information about SafeBOXes, pre-pitched tents, sustainable camping solutions etc. here.

Ticket + Hotel

You want to spend your days in the moshpit, but spend your nights comfortably sleeping in a hotel? No problem! You can find all the information about your combined offer here.



Get the best overview and the latest information in our app. Download it before the festival and get familiar with its functions.  


Our entire festival is cashless, which means that your festival wristband serves not only as a festival ticket, but also as your means of payment.

You can top up your wristband with credit before the festival using your cashless account. There are also "top-up stations" on site where you can recharge the credit on your wristband.

All information about Cashless will soon be available on this website.


The timetable with detailed information about the shows, partner events and the supporting program will be announced shortly before the festival in the app, on Instagram and on our website.

You will always see the latest changes in the app. Here you can even create your own personal schedule with your favorite artists.  


To avoid any unpleasant surprises, check the weather forecast and pack weatherproof clothes, rain and sun protection.

Also plan your food for the weekend. There is no supermarket on the festival grounds. Drinks are available at the splash! Mini-Market at the camping site. On the festival grounds and at the camping site you can snack your way through a wide range of street food stands. There are also vegan and vegetarian offers.



With your festival ticket you can arrive from Wednesday, July 3, 2024 and settle in at the campsite already. The exact arrival time will be announced later. An earlier arrival is not possible, because the camping area is not accessible before.  

Ferropolis is located near Gräfenhainichen, about 20km away from Dessau and is easily accessible by public transport as well as by car or caravan.

We recommend you to travel by train or bus for several reasons: You will save extra costs for parking and avoid long traffic jams - the access roads to the festival area are usually very crowded at the beginning and end of the festival. Last but not least, traveling by public transport is much better for the environment and reduces your ecological footprint. Also, there is a festival bus offer from various cities in Germany. 

Please plan some extra time for your arrival, to wait for the shuttle bus or the allocation of a parking space, to change your wristband and to navigate your way around the campsite.  

More detailed information on how to get there by car, public transport, shuttles & Co. You can find here soon.  

You have arrived at the campsite? Great! Now it's time to find a nice place to spend the night and get settled.


With the weekend ticket you will be accommodated in camp purple, camp blue or camp yellow. If you have booked a premium or comfort ticket, you will stay at the premium campsite. Glamping in cribs and cabins will take place at splash! Ville.  

You are free to choose your camping spot, but there is a "first come, first served" principle for the most popular camping spots. Please only camp in the designated areas and always follow the instructions of the security staff.  

You will find toilets, drinking water stations and several shower containers throughout the campsite.


Don't fancy transporting your tent or don't have your own camping equipment?

Then simply rent a tent and various camping accessories from mein-zelt-steht-schon and even have it set up for you. This way, you can arrive without any stress and move straight into your pitched tent.

If you want to contribute to protecting the environment, you can also rent a tent and/or camping equipment such as camping mats or camping chairs from UTOPIA Camping, which recycles equipment and tents and thus contributes to reducing unnecessary camping waste.

You can find an overview of our additional services here.


To ensure that all visitors feel safe and comfortable at splash!, your cooperation is required.

Here you will find the most important safety rules at a glance:

  • Basically: use your common sense. Be considerate of others and help other people if needed. Of course, you can always approach our awareness staff or other employees who can then provide further support.
  • We do not tolerate racist, sexist or discriminatory behavior of any kind. Anyone who does not comply with this runs the risk of being excluded from the festival.
  • No glass is allowed on the entire site due to the high risk of injury.
  • Barbecues are permitted on the campsite in the containers provided for this purpose (see permitted and prohibited items). Please always follow the instructions of our staff.
  • Open fires are prohibited for fire safety reasons.
  • Weapons are prohibited on the entire site. Cutlery is allowed on the campsite, but unfortunately not on the festival grounds.
  • Noise level on the campsite: Of course we want you to have as much fun as possible at our festival around the clock.
  • And even if some of you have a long party breath and inexhaustible energy for 3 days in a row, we still ask you to keep the background noise as low as possible, especially at night on the campsite, and to be considerate of those who might want to relax a little so that everyone has enough energy for the next day.
  • Stages and crowd barriers: Due to large crowds, various areas in front of the stages may be temporarily closed. This is solely for the safety of visitors and due to official requirements. Again, please be considerate of others and follow the instructions of the staff.



From the camping ground to the festival area  

As you can see on the map, the camping area is separated from the festival area towards the main road. Between camping and festival area is a distance of about 15 to 20 minutes walking. 

There is a bus shuttle between the camping site and the festival area. All information about shuttle offers can be found here soon. 

Alternatively you can walk along the lake to the festival area in about 15 to 20 minutes.   


Over three days there will be a big and varied program on and around our stages, the camping site and our FAIRopolis Area.   

On the campground stages Radio Stage and FAIRopolis the program starts every day already in the morning. The festival area with the biggest stages opens in the afternoon. The program will last until the early morning hours.  

The site plan is already online, but will be updated until shortly before the festival.


And if that was all a bit much at once, we have something for you:   Your personal checklist, so you won't forget any important things.
