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 groundwater. Make sure you have tare to fill before you come. Why buy?
During the gathering chai shops will be cooking fresh Worlds foods, serving refreshments, teas, and coffees.
Non-alcoholic beverages will only be allowed in plastic/paper/metal tare. All sorts of glass items are forbidden at the festival and parking site.
Alcoholic beverages are not allowed to bring into the festival or parking territory. There will be a few bars around the festival.
There will be specially for children designated area at the festival where kids can spend time with other kids under the supervision of care-takers. Specialists will take care of your kids and provide them with alternative entertainment – your children will certainly forget about computer games and tv, at least for the time being.
First of all, be safe, stay hydrated and look after your friends and people at the festival in general. Things sometimes get out of hands and people may need professional help or advise. The service will be provided by Be Safe Lab. Upon arrival locate them on the map and head there for help or advise. If you see or suspect somebody is not feeling well, feel free to contact any members of staff, volunteers or security and they will get in touch with Be Safe Lab dedicated team.
Safe the forest, don’t make a fire! There are no camping fires allowed in the forest (no torches, grills, camping cookers or any other fire lamps) You will find official fireplaces on the map of the festival. Every stage, shop, and bars are equipped with fire extinguishers – use it when needed. If you noticed fire anywhere inform security of member of staff immediately.
Leave better trace
Leave the forest better than you found it!
Let’s make sure together that we take care of this beautiful, pristine nature that provides us with so much joy during Yaga Gathering, year after year.
We want to make sure that all of us can keep enjoying this forest and its diverse ecosystems for years to come. What does it mean?
It means we take care of our water sources – lake and the stream
It means we don’t litter, especially taking care of the dangerous waste! This includes
Take your trash away when you leave – as much as we would like to take care of your stay at Yaga, make sure you take away all your irregular trash, that doesn’t belong to recycling, compost or regular general trash:
Cut food waste
We want to take care of the world together. Growing/ producing, packaging, and transporting food takes an incredible amount of the world’s resources. Please show your respect and make sure you cut the food waste during Yaga Gathering,
Therefore we want to encourage you to bring only the amount of food to the festival that you can eat. If you are feeling generous – share your food with your neighbors. Make sure you don’t throw food away just because you bought too much and overestimated how hungry you will be!
Compost bins, and use biodegradable plates, cups, and spoons
We are starting to use compost at Yaga Gathering! Which is great news. First of all, you can turn all your food waste into compost instead of waste – remember to throw the food waste in the compost bin. The used organic plates and utensils however need to go to the general trash
Please please please, make sure that your tableware is compostable before you throw it in the compost bin. If you throw something non-biodegradable, it will mess the whole compost system.
We want to encourage you to use low-carbon travel. To reach Yaga Gathering, prioritize taking a train if you can.
Otherwise, a bus or a car-pooling, so that the cars don’t arrive with only one person per vehicle.
We would like to encourage you to avoid flying, especially on short-distance travel, even if the flights are cheap.
This year, you will have an option of a warm shower at Yaga Gathering – yay! But due to the location of the festival, we can only provide showers connected to a water container. This means that we can only secure a limited amount of water for the showers.
Therefore, please make sure you enjoy your showers to the full extent, and use as little water as possible! Let’s take care of our water consumption together.
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 a 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.
there will be few 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. This creates some problems and undermines the 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.
