Festival 2022 Info

PAROOKAVILLE 2022 will take place from July 22nd to 24th July 2022 at Weeze Airport in NRW, Germany.

Friday, 22nd July 2022, 14:00 - 4:00h
Saturday, 23rd July 2022, 14:00 - 4:00h
Sunday, 24th July 2022, 14:00 - 1:00h

Most of the artists are already announced. All headliners and the line-up so far can be found in the app and under Line-Up.

Every citizen of PAROOKAVILLE must be at least 18 years old – no exceptions due to safety reasons!

Two things needed for check-in at the festival area/campsite:

  1. PAROOKAVILLE Ticket (e.g. Regular Full Weekend Visa)
  2. A valid identity card (also possible: passport or driver’s license – nothing else!)
    Student cards, health insurance card, etc. are NOT ACCEPTED!

Have the printed tickets and the ID card at the City Gate ready for inspection. Since the PAROOKAVILLE Visa (tickets) are personalized, only people will gain access if the ticket name (“Ticketinhaber”) and the name on the ID document are the same. NO EXCEPTION!

Visitors of the entire "Home of the Brave" Campsite can commute between Campsite, festival area and parking lot at any time. All other visitors (hotel guests, day guests, etc.) can only leave the festival site once per day and will not be allowed to re-enter.

PAROOKAVILLE will take place in compliance with the current hygiene and distance regulations at that time. As of today (01.06.2022), this means that neither vaccination or gene enzyme tifaicates will be checked, nor corona test certificates are necessary for visiting the festival. Also a duty to wear medical or FFP2 masks, as well as minimum distances are - as of today - not required.

The Health Department is in close communication with all authorities and will inform all citizens at any time through all channels about the applicable conditions, should anything change. Please use our sanitary and hygiene areas regularly to protect yourself.

Food and/or beverages may not be brought onto the festival site. Free drinking water is available at several locations, and there is a large selection of food and beverages on-site at festival-friendly prices. The only drinking utensil you can take to the City is the foldable drinking bottle (EMPTY), which you will soon be able to purchase again at the PAROOKAVILLE Boutique.

On the festival area and on the campsites there will be powerbanks as well as lockers to store valuables. Each locker has space for 2-3 summer jackets (25cm x 25cm x 50cm). The locker can be bought as an Add-On before the festival or on site while stocks last. The powerbanks can only be purchased on site at the Townhall and at the Base Camp Marketplace. Once purchased, it is always replaceable once empty. Endless Power - with green electricity.

There will be a sufficient number of large toilet areas in PAROOKAVILLE. The toilet areas are well distributed, easy to reach for everyone and are cleaned several times a day. The use of all toilets is free of charge.

Since the health of our citizens is close to our hearts, you will get free drinking water at several places in PAROOKAVILLE. We will announce the exactly positions shortly before the festival in the City Map.

At all food and drink booths as well as almost all attractions in PAROOKAVILLE Token are used to pay. You can get the Token at our ING Bank of PAROOKAVILLE and pay them via cash, EC- or Credit-Card. Token can only be exchanged at the ING Bank of PAROOKAVILLE on the festival grounds or the campsite. Please note the indicated opening hours. An exchange / return after PAROOKAVILLE 2022 is NOT possible!

ATTENTION: To return Token you have to present your PAROOKAVILLE ticket. So make sure to have your e-ticket ready on your phone!

At a festival, the internet and network availability can be somewhat limited. However, all providers will be on site this year and will do their best to guarantee you optimal accessibility. For all VIP guests there is free wifi on the VIP decks.

Citizens who ordered Booze Bag as Add-On in advance can collect them from Thursday on at the ING Bank of PAROOKAVILLE on the Campsite (if they have a Campsite-Ticket). After the opening of the festival grounds, the Booze Bags can only be picked up at the ING Bank of PAROOKAVILLE at City Gate 2 on the festival grounds. It is not possible to exchange or refund Token from Booze Bags!

For medical emergencies of all kinds, paramedics and emergency workers are on site around the clock. Please leave the escape routes and emergency exits for the rescue service free at all times! If you are dependent on medication, please bring them in the original packaging together with a medical certificate. Necessary cooling facilities for medicines are available at the Johanniter on site.

We do our best, to make sure that we can all celebrate the weekend of our lifes at PAROOKAVILLE together. Too much alcohol or illegal drugs can end the party faster than you‘d like. So, already take care of you and your friends at the entrance. In addition, we pursue a zero-tolerance policy! Anyone seen with illegal drugs, e.g. during the security check at the City Gates or the controls at the festival, will immediately be handed over to the police and won’t get access to the festival anymore.

Overnight stays on the parking lot (also in the cars!) are strictly forbidden.
ATTENTION: All vehicles, which are still in the car park “Tagesbesucher” after closing the festival grounds on Monday morning (25.07.22), will be towed at charge! The parking lot “Campsite” must be vacated by 18:00h on Monday evening at the latest.

After a two-year break we would like to refresh the topic of safety and would like to make you aware that:

  • it is important to always watch out for each other.
  • you shoudn’t leave your drinks unattended.
  • you always have the most important things with you, such as money, phone and your identity card.

Travel Info

PAROOKAVILLE takes place on the event site at Weeze Airport in NRW, Germany. 
For navigation, please enter Weeze as destination (only the place, no street names!).

Because of the traffic management we request you to NOT ENTER AIRPORT or PAROOKAVILLE as destination but to follow the signs when leaving the Autobahn/motorway!

Due to a construction site on the route of the train RE10 direction Kleve-Düsseldorf, there will unfortunately be no special trains for PAROOKAVILLE in 2022 as in previous years. The rail replacement service will only run during the day at regular times and in limited capacity by bus.

For this reason, we have created the PV Express. You can find more information under "Travelling by PV Express".

Due to a construction site on route of the train RE10 in the direction of Kleve-Düsseldorf, there will unfortunately be no special trains for PAROOKAVILLE in 2022 as in previous years.

Since the trains were used mainly by day visitors from the district of Kleve in the past years, we have created the "PV Express" together with a bus travel company, which will take you this year from the stations Krefeld Hbf, Kempen, Aldekerk, Nieukerk, Geldern, Kevelaer, Goch, Bedburg-Hau and Kleve directly to the festival entrance and back.

From Weeze train station there are two additional bus lines.

A PV Express ticket is always valid for the return journey from/to the booked departure station.

For the bus line Weeze - Festival - Weeze you can buy a ticket online, but also on site if necessary. On site, additional costs are to be expected.

If you want to go home, you have to leave the festival site. This regulation is a security requirement that we have to fulfill!

Campsite Info

All Base Camp visitors use the same check-in. As in 2019, there will again be the proven system with different entry lanes. To get in the right lanes, please follow the signs on site:

Handgepäck/ Hand baggage: Here all citizens with little luggage may queue (everything a person can carry alone).

Sperrgepäck/ Heavy baggage: Here all citizens with a lot of luggage and handcarts, wheelbarrows, benches etc. have to get into line. Please expect longer waiting times! The more complicated the luggage is packed, the longer the security check will take!

Wiedereinlass/ Re-entry: Re-entry rows for citizens who have already checked in. So, if you have to go back to the car, you don't have to get into line again in the big queues. However, the following also applies here: No hand carts and bulky luggage in the re-entry rows!

Opening Check-In Campsites: Thu, 21.07.22, 10:00h
Closure of Campsites: Mon, 25.07.22, 15:00h

ATTENTION: Long waiting times are to be expected during the morning. Recommendation: Arrive in the afternoon! The check-in is possible until 01:00h at night without any problems.

The PAROOKAVILLE Campsites offer enough space for all visitors. Nevertheless the capacities are limited and we ask you to take up only as much space as necessary, especially if you take pavilions with you (see the regulations under „pavilions“)! Help each other! In order to set up the tents as space-saving as possible, the following is a guideline: In a 2-3 person tent at least 2 persons should stay overnight. Large (team) tents with more than 8 sleeping places are not allowed! Our security staff will check the tent sizes at the check-in to the campsites.

You can of course bring your own tents, sleeping bags, camping mats etc. with you. Alternatively, tents and equipment can also be bought at the PENNY Store on the campsites for a small fee. The instructions of our security staff must be followed at any times! In order to guarantee a space-saving setup, the Campsite lots will be gradually opened by the security staff as soon as an open plot is sufficiently filled with tents. Since the Campsite filling is dynamic, it is not possible to plan how quickly and in which direction the Campsites will be filled.

You can't find a pitch for your tent? Shortly behind the check-in there will be an info booth where you can turn to. It will be open on Thursday from 12:00-23:00h and on Friday from 8:00-22:00h.

Motorhomes, cars, trailers etc. are strictly forbidden in the Base Camp.

Classic pavilions (3×3 meters) are permitted for groups of 5 or more people. Our security staff will also check this, both during check-in and during the set-up. Instructions from our security staff must be followed at all times! In the PENNY Camp only pavilions received from PENNY can be set up – additional pavilions are not permitted.

The heart of our campsites! In our PENNY Stores you can find 24/7 everything that makes the festival visitor's heartbeat faster - and all this at PENNY discount prices. This year again there are two big PENNY Stores – so all citizens are well taken care of! Shopping at the PENNY Store can be conveniently paid for by EC-, credit card or cash.

SPECIAL: Do you need cash? No problem at all! You can once again conveniently withdraw cash while shopping at PENNY stores.

Opening hours

The PENNY Store at the Marketplace will be open 24/7, the PENNY Store at the Check-In will be closed at night, but there will be a Night Desk with essential products. Both PENNY stores are accessible to all campsite citizens.

PENNY Store at Marketplace:
THU, 21.07.22, 10:00h until

The PENNY Camp is a separate area next to the popular PENNY Store. The upgrade can be booked via the personal MyTicket-Portal (only available in addition to the "Regular Full Weekend Visa + Base Camp"). Tent and accessories become the property of the buyer after check-in. Information about the PENNY Camp can be found here.

One day before festival start (Thursday, 21st of July) there will be our legendary Pre-Party again – besides our PENNY DJ Tower we will open Desert Valley, too, including all its attractions like the Desert Valley Stage and the Casa Bacardí.

PENNY DJ Tower: 12:00h – 00:00h
Desert Valley: 17:00h – 00:00h

The PENNY Square on the Base Camp and the Desert Valley are accessible for the Base Camp as well as all Caravan Empire, Comfort and Deluxe Camp visitors after appropriate security and access checks.

The marketplace as well as several chill out areas offer enough seats and relax possibilities.

All visitors of Base Camp have to book the parking ticket „Parking: Campsite Full Weekend“. 

On the festival area and on the campsites, there will be powerbanks as well as lockers to store valuables. Each locker has space for 2-3 summer jackets (25cm x 25cm x 50cm). The locker can be bought as an Add-On before the festival or on site while stocks last.

To wash off the sweat from dancing, you can use our familiar festival washing troughs and our numerous shower containers located on the Campsite. The washing troughs (with drinking water) can be used free of charge at all times. The shower cabins with warm water can be used for a surcharge for each shower (1 token; free for VIP attendees). Be sure to take advantage of our Shower-Happy-Hour from 05:30h to 08:00h for half the price (1/2 Token).

All toilet areas are conveniently located so that you can easily reach them in only a few minutes. All toilets are free of charge and cleaned several times a day. In the case that new toilet paper is needed or a toilet needs to be cleaned, please notify the cleaning team on-site.

There is always a touch of adventure to PAROOKAVILLE! Therefore, electricity is only available for hair dryers or shaving at the shower containers. Smartphones can be charged with the help of Powerbanks at the charging stations, but you need to bring your own charging cable.

The alternative: Give your camp a bit of luxury – Base Camp visitors can rent a power station for the first time in 2022, which will then supply you with electricity in your camp and can be exchanged for a new one at any time as soon as it is empty. The rental power station can be booked as an add-on.

Attention: No electricity generators of any kind or car batteries are permitted on the campsites! Our security staff will also check for this during check-in. If you want to listen to music from your own speakers, please observe the regulations under the heading “Music”.

You can pay for purchases at the PENNY Store with cash, your EC debit card or by credit card. Showers and powerbanks on the Campsites will be paid with Token. Token are available at our ING Bank of PAROOKAVILLE, where you can also stock up on Token for the festival site since everything on the site is paid with tokens as well.

During the officially posted ING Bank of PAROOKAVILLE business hours you can exchange your token for cash again. For informational purposes the precise regulations for token exchange will be publically posted at the banks. EXCHANGING TOKEN FOR CASH IS NO LONGER POSSIBLE ONCE PAROOKAVILLE 2022 IS FINISHED!

Grilling with disposable and three-legged grills is fundamentally permitted in front of the tent but must be supervised at all times. The use of grills and gas cookers inside tents is strictly forbidden due to the danger of asphyxiation! ACUTE DANGER!

Please note that the use of ethyl alcohol, petrol or any other combustible liquids is strictly forbidden! The use of commercially available solid charcoal igniters is permitted in accordance with their usage instructions. Grills may not be left unsupervised while burning or burning out. Charcoal is not permitted to burn out on the grass or in the normal rubbish containers. There will be special grilling charcoal containers where charcoal must be disposed of. If poor weather threatens, we will inform you in good time and we may be forced to temporarily ban grilling.

In the event of fire notify the Security staff immediately. Security staff will be on hand throughout the entire event on the campsite at the designated locations on the map. Gas camping cookers may only be used with gas cartridges (screw-on canisters and valve cartridges, for instance like those from CampingGaz) up to a maximum filling weight of 450 grams. Camping cookers that use liquid fuel are not permitted. In addition, open fires and campfires are fundamentally forbidden, as is bringing pyrotechnic materials of any kind! Our Security staff will check for this during check-in.
