The next band we are adding to our 2024 line up is Spell, who will bring their hypnotic Heavy Metal from Canada to Germany!

A Chaos Descends show of the next band we are adding to our line up is long overdue, that’s why they will play not only one, but two special sets on two days: We are extremely excited to announce, that GRAVE MIASMA will play a Exalted Emanation/Realm of Evoked Doom set and a Odori Sepulcrorum set.

And here comes our first announcement! We are super excited to bring you COMMUNION from Chile, who will be playing their first European show at Chaos Descends 2024.

The next edition will take place on July 18.-20., 2024.

For people driving through Pössneck - try to go over Schleiz. There are many blocked roads around Crispendorf and the reception in our hillbilly land is bad - which can be tricky for finding alternative routes.

Camping is open from 4pm on Thursday.

/ / FAQ:

/ / TRASH:
The area has been declared nature reserve – please keep the festival area clean and don’t leave your litter behind – use the trash bins and the trash bags provided by us. And please don’t throw trash into the forest or the little stream.

/ / GLASS:
Glas is prohibited by the owner of the camp ground to avoid traces of glass anywhere in the grass/festival ground/camp ground. Please don’t bring any kind of glass containers, bottles, etc. – it will be taken from you at the entrance.

- weapons of any kind / knifes (exceptions: pocket knives and butter knives)
- pyrotechnics
- open fire
- animals
- zero tolerance for political bullshit and idiots in general If you see anyone misbehaving (well...), destroying other’s property or sexual assault, please report to our office. We will also have security at the camp ground at all times.

We have very limited space only for day parking spots outside the festival area, unfortunately. Keep all roads clear for rescue and delivery vehicles. For campers, vehicles can be parked next to the tents. RVs are allowed. Please follow our parking instructions on arrival.

/ / BBQ:
Grilling is allowed at the designated barbecue area (near the ping pong tables). The grilling-hours are daily from 7am-11pm.

/ / KIDS:
Entry for adolescents under the age of 18 is free (don't forget your ID!). Kids under the age of 16 need a legal guardian (minimum age is 6 years). A permission from a legal guardian is not accepted, only if a legal guardian accompanies the child.

Please help each other out with getting to Crispendorf and away. If you need a ride or if you can offer a ride, you can use our post at the Facebook event page.

As you might have heard, PAKKT sadly had to cancel all of their live appearances for this year BUT the band replacing them fits our pool stage like no other: we welcome OBNOXIOUS YOUTH to our line up!
Our 2023 line up is now complete. We wish our friends from PAKKT all the best and hope that we can catch up later.

Because it was so well received, the Chaos Descends flea market will be back! We are offering a self organised flea market at the festival area on Saturday between 11:00 and 14:00. Bring yourself a blanket and get rid your old shirts, leather jackets and records – sell or swap them. It’s free of charge and has to be non commercial.

We are more than excited to announce that we are adding Depressive Black Metal pioneers STRID to our line up.
