This guide will help you to prepare for the gathering and to feel as comfortable as possible when you will get there.
The festival site will be divided into a few thematic and service areas – Main stage, Chill-Out stage, Concept stage, Healing area, Workshop area, Children Area, Cinema, Camping and parking. Details on each one’s location and timeline you will find out from the map that you will get on arrival.
To have a pleasant experience gather all the necessary info before leaving and take the following essentials:
The site is gifted by a water source where everyone can fill their bottles with clean and fresh ground water. Make sure you have tare to fill before you come. Why to buy?
During the gathering chaishops will be cooking fresh and healthy Worlds traditional foods, serving refreshments, teas and coffees.
You will have an opportunity to taste 5 types of different beers and traditional “gira” (bread drink). Strong alcohol will not be sold at the festival, take some with you, if you need it. No glass tare is permitted at the site.
There will be specially for children designated area at the festival where kids can spend time with other kids under supervision of care-takers. “Smaragdo miestas” collective specialist will take care of your kids and provide them with alternative entertainment – your children will certainly forget about computer games and tv.
All fire places in the camp must be specially designated – shoveled around and circled with stones. It should be never left without supervision and should be located nowhere close to the forest. Woods may be very dry at this time of the year and an unnoticeable ignition, a carelessly thrown cigarette butt could cause a big fire even a few days later. The reason behind is the moss and the peat that keep ignition unnoticeable.
Bring your own plastic bags to collect the rubbish, leave the camp in a cleaner condition than you have found it. Let’s all together take care of the planet and particular place where the gathering will take place. After the festival is over, please bring your bagged waste to the main rubbish point. You will know where it is from the map that you will receive on arrival.
Don’t stay ignorant if you see rubbish – pick it up and dispose appropriately – the nature and other participants will honor you. Let’s stay as clean as possible.
Let’s try to be as environmentally friendly as possible. Start with your festival shopping. Please refrain of buying foods wrapped in unnecessary package– it only pollutes the environment and adds to the cost. Less package – less rubbish! Considering the package and ‘lovely’ E numbers is a good everyday practice. Don’t wait for the festival – start now!
Please also try not to bring glass items to the site to prevent breakage and possible injuries. Broken pieces of glass left in the grass may cause a fire on a sunny day! It’s one of the biggest reasons for the self ignitions in the forest places – lens-type pieces of glass.
Smokers, please ask for your portable ashtray at the gate and use it at the site and later if you like. If you are not going to use it, please do not collect it. By the way, 1 cigarette butt pollutes 1 cubic meter of water if thrown in the lake.
If you have a possibility, please leave your car at home and come down by public transport. There is a very good bus connection from Vilnius bus and train stations. If it happens that you come with a car, don’t keep the seats empty – give a lift to someone.
Bio-toilets will be ready for use across the site. Please use them to prevent toilet paper spreading in the forest and save those wandering around from stepping on your excrements. If you still decide to do your natural needs in the forest – no problem, but please follow the good example of our smaller brothers – bury it after yourself. Let’s keep the area clean and tidy not only in visible places, but truly everywhere. Inside us all, first of all, stay beautiful within your thoughts and actions.
there will be few cold showers at the site. Please use only environment friendly soaps and shampoos.
please refrain from bringing your dog to the festival. The event is growing and more people do like to bring their pets to the event, but this creates some problems and undermines safety feeling of general participants, especially those with children. If you will decide to bring your dog to the festival, please keep it on a leash at all times.
