Yes, we love kids.
It’s a safe environment with no cars nearby and it’s a gift for us to hear the laughter and joy children bring.
Children until the age of 12 come for free. From 12 -17 they come for half-price (you can give it to us at the festival).
It’s not that kind of festival.
We’re coming together to be present and creative. We’ll still party like crazy some nights but just on the power of music and inspiration alone. So please don’t bring drink and drugs.
Absolutely. In fact that’s the main idea of the festival – for each person to share their creativity and knowledge.
Your workshop should be about an hour and a half at the longest although exceptions can be made so that you would make a double-workshop lasting for three hours.
There should be some sheltered spaces available but remember we’re in the forest and conditions are basic!
If you lead a workshop then you get a discount on your ticket. You can book here and then please let us know what kind of workshop you’re planning! At the festival you can write it on the workshop schedule board.
Yes. Though you can always ask on the Facebook page if someone has space in their tent! There are also a few dry areas in the workshop spaces but space is limited there and you have to jump up when there’s a workshop going on!
Included in the ticket price is a cooked lunch. dinner, and all the tea and coffee. We also provide apples, carrots, bread and jam, porridge, for a self-service breakfast.
The food is vegan, delicious and healthy.
But, yes, it’s always nice to bring some chocolate and treats to share!
We’re limiting it to 100 places plus some teachers, musicians and volunteers.
The idea is that it should be small enough that we still make eye contact and say hi when we pass each other on the path!
Yes, there is an area about 800 metres from the main festival area where you can park your car or van. It’s fine if you sleep in your van. But it’s more fun to bring a tent and sleep on the festival site.
Simple but functional and discreet! There are sit-down compost toilets where you have privacy and yet nature all around.
We have bucket showers and a lake to swim in.
Your kind of people.
It doesn’t matter who you are or where you come from – all you need is a creative spirit and an inner curiosity. We like it that all kinds of people of different ages and backgrounds come. The richness of the festival is in its diversity.
We will invite several teachers to run workshops on subjects as diverse as contact improvisation to eating wild plants to freeing the voice…
In addition, anyone who comes can run a workshop and as people sign up we’ll let you know on the Facebook page which activities have been proposed.
We don’t know.
When you book your place we will send you an information pack with iexact directions but here’s a general guide on how to get there.
The New Year festival is a couple of hours from Prague.
Basically it’s near Malonty and Ceske Budejovice in the south-west of the Czech Republic close to the Austrian border.
