1. What is the sequence for registering for the festival?

For the Celebrate Life Festival 2016, each participant needs a festival ticket for the duration of their stay. The festival ticket can be purchased for one module (3 or 3 1/2 days), for several modules or for the entire time of the festival (= 3 modules). Please register for the festival tickets with the online registration.

It is necessary that all participants (guests, who wish to stay overnight at Hof Oberlethe as well as guests with external accommodation) register at Hof Oberlethe before the festival.

2. When are the arrival/check-in times?

This year the festival consists of 3 modules (of 3/3/3,5 days each). Since we wish to engage fully with each topic, individual days cannot be booked. The evening events (dance events and concerts) are an exception and can be booked independently.

Please note that the evening events are also alcohol- and drug-free events.

 3. How much are the festival tickets?

(For the festival organization – without accommodation and food)

Tabelle_Preise_en_06_20164. What does the income from the festival tickets get used for? How can I contribute to the giving back idea of the festival?

The proceeds from the festival tickets are used to finance the organization of the festival: technical and hall equipment, live streams, airline tickets and board/lodging for all speakers and artists, who, as time progresses, are becoming more and more international. Further costs are: GEMA fees, website, flyers, advertising and proportionate overnight stays for our team, as well as compensation for expenses of the organization team in preparation of the festival.

If, once all the costs have been deducted, there is a surplus, it will be put aside, on the one hand for the advance financing of the Celebrate Life Festival 2017, just as this year’s festival was financed using the surplus from the previous year.

 5. Can I cater for myself during the Festival?

In principle, it is possible to provide your own food. However, the per diem fee of € 39 per person for Hof Oberlethe, which covers food (3 meals) and the use of the entire festival grounds, must be paid in all cases.

6. Is it necessary to register for childcare?

We provide free child care every day for children from 3 years and up (children ready to go to kindergarten), in the morning from 10 am to 1.30 pm and in the afternoon from 6 pm to 7.15 pm. Donations are gladly accepted and will be handed over in their entirety to the charity projects.

ImportantIn order for us to estimate the size of the group, we would prefer if you would register online by July 15.

Information and registration:

7. Can I come with babies?

For parents with small children, who cannot be present/remain at the events, an open barn space has been set up directly next to the great hall. An audio transmission makes it possible to listen to the events. The children can play there or lie in the shade.

This year ‘Transparents’ will also provide a tent for play and encounters for the parents of the youngest ones (0-3 years old).

8. Is there a special program for youths?

There is a youth camp with two tents during the entire festival. There is a special program for young people between the ages of approx. 8 and 13 and another group for those between the ages of 14 and 20 (the actual assessment takes place on location together with the child care workers). For both groups there are many activities and times to meet in their own tents.

 9. What will a festival of this size be like?

A well-developed infrastructure ensures a smooth flow during meals and also guarantees that there are sufficient sanitary facilities. The warm food that is served – especially at lunch time – is all organic and, to the extent possible, from local farmers.

10. Are there translations at the festival?

Most events will be held in German, with simultaneous translation (or vice versa). Please bring a FM radio receiver with headphones (integrated into most MP 3 players, ipods and cell phones – not Apple cell phones). Please consider a sufficient battery life time!
