Come To The SUMMER BREEZE Open Air!

1.: Site map online
2.: Cancellation: MASTODON
3.: ATTENTION: Inquiries / bookings on www.bahn.de
4.: Shower and WC flatrate
5.: Reserve some ice-cold Beck’s beer for the campsite!
6.: Ice cold: Rent a cooler!
7.: Careful when handling fire!
8.: Deadline for the KYLE GASS BAND acoustic guitar duel!

Dear SUMMER BREEZE Community!
1.: Site map online
The new site map, which has had some major changes since last year, is now online in two versions at the following LINK. Make sure to memorize everything so you still manage to find your way to the stage your favourite band is playing after you’ve enjoyed a few cold ones.

2.: Cancellation: MASTODON
Unfortunately we must announce that MASTODON have cancelled all their shows from early August to early September due to family reasons. Sadly this also affects their show at SUMMER BREEZE Open Air 2015. A big sorry to all those who were looking forward to this show.We will fill the free slot in the headliner programme shortly. We are frenetically searching for a replacement.

3.: ATTENTION: Inquiries / bookings on www.bahn.de
Since the transport authorities have not yet changed the system for the electronic schedule information, at the moment there’s still train connections to Dinkelsbühl appearing on www.bahn.de that almost always include the Ansbach station, because the special services, which have now been cancelled, are still stored in the system. However, this would mean chaos in Ansbach, as the few regular line busses would only be able to accommodate a small number of travellers! So please make sure when inquiring or booking on www.bahn.de that your connection does NOT include Ansbach! We urgently advise you to travel via Crailsheim and Ellwangen. The regular services from Ansbach will obviously operate normally… yet they will not be stopping at the Schiesswasen stop as usual, but at the bus station ZOB Schwedenwiese. Again, we are absolutely powerless in this respect, as the final decision lies with the transport authorities. However, the SUMMER BREEZE shuttle buses will stop at the bus station ZOB Schwedenwiese every day.

4.: Shower and WC flatrate
This year we will offer a shower and WC flatrate for the first time, which you can get at all shower stations for 10.- Euros. Single showers for 2.50 Euros are obviously still possible. Those who wish to use the flushable toilets outside of the flatrate can obviously still do so for 1.- Euro. The two main shower stations will be open continuously from Tuesday at 12:00 noon until Sunday at 12:00 noon. The other two shower stations will be open continuously from Wednesday 12:00 noon and also until Sunday 12:00.

5.: Reserve some ice-cold Beck’s beer for the campsite!
Those who’d rather not carry their beer all the way from home or from the Dinkelsbühl supermarkets can now reserve packs of Beck’s beer vor SUMMER BREEZE Open Air 2015. There is the option to reserve packs of Beck’s beer and Beck’s Green Lemon shandy using the Print@Home function on our website so you can pick them up ice-cold from the supermarket in the barn on sector D of the campsite. One pack of beer or shandy contains 24 cans and costs only 30 Euros including the deposit for returnable cans (“Pfand”). This works out at one Euro per can (24 cans at 1 Euro plus 25 cents deposit). Only 1 Euro system commission per pack and the transaction fee for each order have to be added, so it makes even more sense to order many packs at a time. This means: Reserve your ice-cold Beck’s beer or Beck’s Green Lemon at a very fair price under http://www.summer-breeze.de/en/tickets/print-at-home-tickets.html, then print out your Print@Home confirmation(s) (no printed confirmation, no beer!), go to the campsite and pick up your packs whenever you want presenting your ID card, so you have cold beer at all times. You don’t have to pick up your packs all at once, but can rather take them with you one by one. Orders can be placed until Saturday, 08.08.2015 at 23:00. You can obviously buy packs of Beck’s beer and Beck’s Green Lemon on site as well, although at a slightly higher price…
Attention:
It is prohibited to supply alcohol to minors under 16, which is why you must present your ID card together with the confirmation PDF.

6.: Ice cold: Rent a cooler!
Since the transport and handling of dry ice suppose a series of dangers (unfortunately there were dry ice injuries at SUMMER BREEZE 2014), we were forced by the authorities to ban dry ice on the whole festival site. However, we are aware that, not only for pro festival patrons, on a long summer weekend cold drinks on the campsite are a must, which is why we have been thinking of a smart solution for cooling your drinks. We found an appropriate provider in http://rentacoolbox.de, who have the experience and capacities to fulfil the demand. Although the coolers on offer are also dry-ice powered, the systems are secured, so that the authorities gave us the go ahead. The coolers from keep food and drinks cold for up to three days and are capable to cool down drinks by 20 degrees within 10 to 15 minutes. All interested parties may reserve/rent one or more coolers in various configurations from http://rentacoolbox.de, or just contact the staff on site… We hope this works out as a good alternative to bringing your own dry ice.

7.: Careful when handling fire!
As you know and probably understand, open fires are prohibited on the whole festival. Gas and charcoal grills, on the other hand, are allowed as longs as they are used for what they were intended. All grills and stoves MUST be set up on their corresponding stands on firm ground. Coal trays must not be in contact with the ground. Please note: Oil lamps are not allowed on the festival site. The same applies to firewood and cressets. Due to some serious accidents which have resulted in life threatening injuries, we expressly urge you to exercise extreme caution when using fire starters to light charcoal barbeques. Please take this appeal seriously, as numerous accidents have already happened again during this festival season.

8.: Deadline for the KYLE GASS BAND acoustic guitar duel!
The deadline to enter the contest which will allow three lucky winners to beat Kyle Gass and his band in an acoustic guitar duel is inexorably drawing nearer. You can still submit your videos until 01.08.2015, and that’s it! Post your videos as a YouTube link under the original Facebook post https://www.facebook.com/summerbreeze1997/posts/10153381460101675:0
Shy people may also email their video (one minute max.) or the corresponding link to application@silverdust.de.
Stay heavy! \m/

Summer Breeze News

Come To The SUMMER BREEZE Open Air!

Bus Shuttles
This year the free bus shuttle service between the festival site and the town of Dinkelsbühl will operate at the following times:
Tuesday – Wednesday:
10:00 to 20:00 – Stops: Schiesswasen and ZOB (bus station) Schwedenwiese
Thursday – Saturday:
08:00 to 20:00 – Stop: ZOB (bus station) Schwedenwiese
Sunday:
07:00 to 14:00 – Stops:Schiesswasen and ZOB (bus station) Schwedenwiese

GREEN CAMPING location
Since this year more patrons are going to take part in the GREEN CAMPING as during last year’s test run, we have to move the GREEN CAMPING site. Now the GREEN CAMPING area is located only a few steps further, on the former spare surface north of the forest. The main benefit for GREEN campers is they will have an even quieter atmosphere as well as more room for all participants. Furthermore, both the flushable toilets and the shower station will are now in close proximity. We trust we have made the right decision, not least in the interest of an undisturbed camping experience. On Tuesday from 10:00 to 22:00, access to the GREEN CAMPING area will be through Black Earth at the main festival entrance. From Wednesday at 10:00 until Saturday, access will be through the VIP entrance, which will be signposted. You will receive a map of the exact route in your confirmation PDF.

Questionnaire regarding Tuesday arrival
As you already know, this year it is possible to arrive at SUMMER BREEZE on Tuesday already. Since we don’t have any experience in this matter, we would like to conduct a quick survey in order to be able to estimate how many of you will arrive on Tuesday 11th of August 2015 and plan accordingly. Please everybody take part. Thank you.
As a little incentive and as a way of saying thank you we will give away 5 x 10 free drinks for this year’s SUMMER BREEZE among all participants. The main prize is the chance for two people to watch a band of their choice from the balcony on the Main Stage, free drinks inclusive! Many thanks in advance for your help and good luck with the raffle! There you go: https://de.surveymonkey.com/s/sbdienstag

Summer Breeze – Opeth last confirmed band

May 20th, 2015

Come To The SUMMER BREEZE Open Air!

OPETH
Our last band confirmation for SUMMER BREEZE 2015 sets a huge exclamation mark under an already killer billing: OPETH!
The prog vanguardists led by musical genius Mikael Akerfeldt finally return to Dinkelsbühl after their last appearance in 2009. The unique melange of the death metal sound of their early days and the progressive metal/rock that dominates their latest releases is carried by an incomparable atmosphere, a palpable depth and their frontman’s unequalled vocals. Growls meet warm clean vocals, harsh riff attacks encounter fragile, melancholic moments. That’s how the Swedes made it to an incredible # 3 in the German charts with their latest output ‘Pale Communion’, a success most of their peers can only dream of. Dense atmosphere, gripping epicness, captivating arrangements, dropped jaws – all inclusive! One of the best and most exciting bands of our time!
