Every year, the M’era Luna Festival on the Drispenstedt airfield in Hildesheim is a meeting place for the Goth scene from all over Europe, in order to spend a peaceful and relaxed weekend with old and new friends. As well as the constantly top-class headliners, the main attractions for visitors from all over the world include the special atmosphere, the short distances, the medieval market or the extravagant fashion show. Around 40 national and international bands, a comprehensive support programme, disco nights with DJs from the scene, or numerous sales stands attract more than 20,000 extravagantly dressed fans from all over the world, year after year.
You will be allowed to access the campsite and festival grounds only with a festival wristband. These wristbands are issued in exchange for your valid admission ticket at the transit points between the car park and campsite. The site map will show you where your “cash desk” / wristband issuing point is located. If you are part of a group, it makes sense for you to look after each other’s luggage, while the others are collecting their wristbands. The wristband will be attached to your wrist. At the wristband issuing point you will also receive a flyer with the festival programme, the most important information, and the site map, so that you will always know what’s going on (all information and other features are also available from our Festival App). Admission is especially quick if you use our fast lane.
VALIDITY OF THE WRISTBANDS
Admission to the festival and event grounds is possible only with an original festival wristband with an original, undamaged and closed seal! If this is not the case, you are not entitled to be admitted.
There are loads of essential things that you will definitely need to take with you to the festival, in order to feel comfortable and ready for all eventualities. We have listed some of these here. Remember that at first you will have to carry your luggage a long way. Sometimes less is more!
The right clothing is also important. You should be prepared for all kinds of weather. A hat or a cap and sunglasses will protect you from strong sunshine, but you should also make sure to have rainproof gear with you. Remember that it can get quite cold at night, even if it has been scorching hot all day.
There is a wide variety of different kinds of food stands on the festival grounds, but you are also allowed to pack a small lunch packet for the festival grounds.
When camping we also recommend that you provide your own food and drinks. We sell almost everything cheaply in our supermarket, Super!
It is best to keep your documents and your cash in a money belt, so that you can always carry your valuables on your person. Leave any bank cards and keys that you do not need at home, so that they don’t get lost.
By the way, if you have forgotten anything, you can buy camping equipment at reasonable prices any time directly in the festival grounds from our friends at helgaa. Helgaa provides you the opportunity to buy camping equipment such as pavilions, chairs, sleeping bags, tents, etc. directly at the festival.
Those who wish to be sure can also order online in advance. Then, all you need to do is collect your ordered items when you arrive. The stand is located directly on the campsite: www.helgaa-festival.de
The Info Point is located at the entrance to the event grounds. You will receive a site map there, as well as all the important information about the festival. The Info Point also contains the lost property office and much more.
