Please be friendly to the environment

Please make sure to dispose of your waste entirely so that we can return the site unharmed back to nature.
The site consists of land belonging to local farmers who are friendly enough to allow us to dispose of it for the time of the festival. All damages must be paid for. Hence no bottle lids, broken pieces of glass, cigarette buds or other things must be left behind on the campsite. Please collect even your neighbours’ rubbish to fill up your binbags.
Climate and environment protection are big themes for open airs. e-Lake festival would like to show together with its guests that a weekend of fun, music and environment protection are not exclusive of each other. The enormous rubbish production has become a problem for our festival over the course of the last few years. In order to be able to use the agricultural land for camping in the future, a great improvement is necessary. We need your support to make festival camping secure and you can actively participate in being environmentally friendly. Over the course of the festival cleaners will regularly and continuously keep the festival site, areaways and larger alleys on the campsite clean and empty rubbish bins.

Penalties

If someone seriously annoys someone else and / or disregards the rules, he or she will be suspended from the campsite!

Garbage ?

In order to resolve the problem of the massive waste production on the festival-area, the organizer founded the action group „e-Lake goes green“ two years ago. With the support of some partners, a „Recycling Center“ will be based on the event-site, and the visitors of the festival and those staying on the camping will be, with some different possibilities, excited to contribute to the reduction and separation of the upcoming waste (f. ex.: one free drink if you pick up 20 bowls). This will be done due to our and your responsibility to protect the green area next to the lake of Echternach as much as possible.
