Whether you live around the corner or in Guatela-who-the-hell-cares: Fresh Village is the place to stay during Freshtival. Here the party never stops. Get your friends in because your mini holiday starts here!
That’s the spirit. Because after midnight the party isn’t over, we move to our campsite for the biggest silent discos of the east. At a stone’s throw away from the festival site: your Valhalla to stay for 1, 2, or 3 nights!
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 will 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. Join the pre-party right after the afterparty, 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 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! Your bed is literally around the corner on our campsite. But believe us when we say, sleeping will probably be the last thing you think about during Freshtival.
Freshtival does not end on the festival terrain. The party just goes on and on at Fresh Village. From corny karaoke to hottubs and from the bootcamp hour to Der Nachtdienst (silent disco). Bring on the positive vibes!
The activity line-up for Freshtival Weekend 2022 will follow soon.
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 will find all facilities that you and your friends need.
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!

The size of the tent needs to be reasonable compared to the amount of people sleeping inside. There is no size limit, but please be considerate and don’t take more than 2 m2 per person. You can’t just place your tent anywhere. The organization / camping host will get you a nice spot that keeps the fire exits clear.
Yes you can! However, the same regulations apply as for normal tents. Party tents can only be placed at the direction of the organization / camping host, and may be 3 x 3 m max.
