Acoustic Lakeside Festival








About us

Our passion and love is all yours, beloved Acoustic Lakeside Festival. What started as a pet project of a close group of friends disappointed by the cold and distant character of major music festivals in 2006 transformed into a common project for over 300 enthusiastic and dedicated association members and volunteers. Nothing makes us happier than building a festival experience unlike any other in the company of our friends, cherishing the moments we have with our one-of-a-kind visitors in those warm summer nights, and sharing the warm feeling that overcomes us when our favorite artists honor us with their summery acoustic music endeavors year after year.

Sleep Well

Everyone with a valid festival ticket is invited to bring their tent and pitch it just a stone’s throw away from the stage. Please be considerate of the environment, in particular, do not leave behind any garbage at the venue or campsite. Better leave dangerous items such as camping stoves, glass bottles, or fireworks at home. The campsite will open at 9 a.m. on Thursday. So go ahead, find your spot, and make yourself at home!

Only a valid festival ticket grants you access to the lakeside venue and campsite. Our volunteers at the entrance checkpoints will act accordingly.

You cannot park in the camping area, but if you prefer sleeping in your vehicle, please talk to our stewards at the main entrance and they will point you in the right direction. There is plenty of space for off-site parking within walking distance. Here you can find an overview of all available caravan camping sites.

If you want to stay off-site, there are various places in the surrounding area providing accommodation. Our region has something to offer for every taste. An ample number of options are available under, or

Garbage Fee
We are driven to make an uncomplicated and relaxing festival happen for all of our visitors that is unlike any other. As this is a very strenuous undertaking, we are very happy about every visitor who is considerate of the environment and does not leave any garbage behind. We do not charge a garbage fee as we trust in you and your cooperation. Garbage bags will be distributed at the entrance.

To ensure no one gets hurt, we kindly ask you to leave dangerous items such as camping stoves, knives, glass bottles etc at home.

There are enough parking spaces available only a few minutes away from the festival venue. Unfortunately, you cannot park in the camping area. For people with disabilities, there will be dedicated parking lots directly next to the entrance.
