The answer to: when?

Opening hours

The venue will open daily at 1:00 PM and will close on Friday at 2:00 AM and Sunday at 4:00 AM.

Running order

We try our hardest to not overlap bands and stages, so it's possible to view all 40+ bands and only miss the minutes to get a fresh beer.

Festival bracelet

Every visitor gets a festival bracelet made of fabric with a metal closure. The festival ribbons can be picked up every day from around 12:30 at the festival grounds.

No re-entry after 7:00 PM

Regulation by the Essigfabrik

Regulation by the Essigfabrik: In agreement with the city of Cologne and the neighboring residents there is between 19:00 and 24:00 no re-entry to the event site. In case of special situations or concerns just talk to our friendly security and the problem can be solved safely together.
