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.

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.
