Experience the most awesome pre-parties and unforgettable afterparties with your best friends. Lovely barbecues, crackling camp fires and many mány games.

Why go home at midnight to go to bed THERE? Forget that! You can sleep at a stone’s throw away from the festival site. And not 1, not 2, but three nights! Sleeping is for losers? We have something for that. 😉 Afterparties until 4 in the morning at Fresh Village, and the two greatest Super Silent Disco’s of the east.
It’s nearly impossible to describe the ultimate Freshtival feeling. Fabulous, overwhelming, creative, crazy, sweet, rebellious… No, you just have to experience it. Because here, you’ll make memories for live.
Flee from that daily rut! At the camping, you will really be away from all the obligations and you can enjoy a care-free weekend with your best friends.
Fresh Village is so much more than just a camping. Anything goes here. Dive into a car wash yourself, join the pre-party right after the after party, bootcamp, barbecue, and play games until you can’t play no more. Can do!
Freshtival has been a tradition for many people for many years. That Weekender is something you HAVE to tick off your bucketlist.
We have solutions for ALL inconveniences. For instance: can’t sleep? Call the bedtime story team! They will come and read you a bedtime story, so you will sleep like a baby within no-time.
It’s all about making memories! Start new friendships, find your new love or experience great adventures with your very best friends. You’ll be bringing up unforgettable memories of this legendary weekend for many years!
Last but not least. You don’t need a bob or taxi! You simply walk to your tent and take the shuttle bus, car or camper in peace on Monday.
Aside from showering, using the bathroom and sleeping, there’s so much more to do. Freshtival does not end on the festival site. Many activities take place on the camping site so you don’t have to be bored for even one second. You can just enjoy your weekend with all the great Fresh Village extra’s to the max, with your best friends!
Besides all the cool activities, a place to charge your phone, a shower, and a clean toilet would be nice as well. At Fresh Village you’ll find all facilities that you and your friends need. Think of a supermarket, a first-aid post and a make-up corner with power supply.
Are you a die hard camper? Or do you rather have it fancy? Fresh Village has several options for accommodation and upgrade. There will always be something that suits you. Have a look!
