FAQ

Tickets

Are there day tickets available?

No, we don't offer day tickets to encourage everyone to go all in for the whole weekend.

 

I bought a ticket, but am unable to join. Can I get a refund?

No, but you're welcome to sell your ticket so someone else.

How do I change the name on my ticket?

There's a blue button in your confirmation mail that says "persönlicher Bereich - hier entlang". This goes to your personal Ticket.io environment. Here you can change the name on your ticket.

 

I lost my ticket. What now?

Send an email to tickets@kallistofestival.com, and we will help you find it.



HOW DO I GET TO THE FESTIVAL?

 

With public transport:

The nearest train station is Ferdinandshof, about two hours from Berlin. The train drives every two hours, so check in advance which one you take. Recommendation: get in the train at Berlin Hauptbahnhof or Sudkreuz. At Gesundbrunnen the train is often already full. There will be SHUTTLES driving from and to the train station. Capacity is limited, so perhaps you have to wait a while. We’ll be driving on set times, you can check them here. Costs for the shuttle are 3 euro per person, please bring this in cash. Or bring a bike so you’re on your way quickly. It’s about 6km.

By car:

The coordinates of the festival area are 53.6252758, 13.8375901. You can now even find it on GoogleMaps searching for "Oakyard Grounds". There will be designated parking areas where you can park your car for free.

CAMPING


When does the camping open?

You're welcome to set up your tent from Thursday 17:00. But be aware, the bar and food stands only open on Friday. Our lineup starts Friday around 15:00.

Are campers/vans allowed on the camping?

Yes, but due to restrictions from the fire department you first have to park on concrete for two hours. After that you're allowed on the grass. Space is limited though, so first come first serve!

Can I pay with card at the festival grounds?

No, we’re cash only. There is no cash machine, so make sure you bring enough Bargeld. 

Will there be electricity on the camping?

There's no electricity on the camping. There will also be very limited options to charge your electronic devices at the festival. Please bring your power banks, solar charger or just go offline for the weekend and switch it off.

What is the toilet and shower situation like?

We will have 10 actual flushing toilets, so no more compost toilets (and no more shit shifts for the Kallisto crew). Showers are still cold, but there are more than last year. We have always made sure there are more than enough toilets and will provide even more Dixies to make sure you don't have to wait.

Is there a supermarket nearby?

There's a Netto supermarket 10 minutes from Ferdinand station. So you can do your shopping there and walk back to the station to jump in a shuttle.


WASTE POLICY

We celebrate in nature and want to make sure that together with you we treat the festival grounds respectfully:

 

#NoConfetti: Kallisto is a colourful festival, but we don't need a million pieces in the gras. So please save your confetti for a party in your living room or something.

 

#CollectTrash: The grounds are not only home to Kallisto, but also to many of animals and plants. Therefore, clean up your trash, don't let it fly around, and pick up trash when you see it. We will provide trash bags for you to use. Trash in Germany - and at Kallisto - is separated in paper, glass, packaging and residual waste. Find out more here.

 

#UseAshtrays:  Our goal at the end of Kallisto: to not find cigarettes on the ground. There will be some portable ashtrays around, so please use them. 
 

#AllTogether: Only together can we make Kallisto green and clean. We will do our best to keep trash from ending up anywhere but in the trash can in the first place, but it won't work without you: let's do something good together.

KIDS & DOGS?

Are dogs allowed on Kallisto?

Although we love dogs, Kallisto is not the place for them. The music is too loud and people might be afraid of them. Recognised assistance dogs are of course an exception. 

Can we bring our kids to Kallisto?

Short answer: Yes, but keep an eye on them. Unsupervised children will be sold to intergalactic bounty hunters.

 

Long answer: Generally speaking, Kallisto is for people of 21 and up. But we don't want to exclude all of you fun parents, however we do want to emphasize that our festival is not necessarily the most child-friendly space. There will be loud music, alcohol*, loads of dancing people, areas where you might get lost (our Trippy forest), dark bunkers, sharp corners. We can't guarantee that the festival grounds are a safe place for kids, nor will we provide any facilities for children. You're welcome to bring your kids, but this is at your own risk and we ask you to supervise them all the time.
 

CAMERA POLICY

Is it allowed to make photos and videos on Kallisto?
You’re welcome to capture the festival with nice pictures and videos (please send them to us!). But be conscious of who you film, make sure you don’t film people recognisable without their permission.

The dance floor is a camera free zone! so we can all let go and be in the moment. We will have a designated camera person taking videos at specific times. This person will be recognisable and will always ask for your permission to film you.
