Children who have not attained the age of 18 can access the festival area accompanied by an adult but need a valid ticket. People with disabilities receive free access to the festival but have to register in advance. Given the fact that the festival ground lies in the wilderness, the access can be difficult in some areas.

By bringing their dog to the festival the owner accepts all liability for any injury or property damage caused by their dog and the owner will be solely responsible for any and all cost of repairs, fines or levies by any agency or other party.
