For security reasons, backpacks or suitcases cannot and will not be accepted in the different locations of the Festival, and there will be no cloakrooms. It is thus recommended that you do not come to the Festival with bigger personal bags than small backpacks or handbags.

Caution: for some indoor locations the number of people we can let in is limited, a waiting line is thus possible.
