7. Outdoor showers will be provided in the fortress. We invite you to use environmentally and human-friendly hair and body products;
9. We try to create as little waste as possible and avoid plastic packaging, so there will be no bottled water at the festival. We do, however, believe that the availability of drinking water is one of the most important human rights, so drinking water will be available free of charge at the festival and can be filled in a takeaway dish – a reusable bottle or mug, borrowed from our Dish Library.
10. To reduce the amount of disposable tableware we have a beautiful dish library – borrow a plate, cutlery, have some food, wash it and put it back. Disposable paper containers at the food points will be available at extra cost;
