Camping & Mobile Homes


The 3-day festival ticket also includes access to the camping areas starting from Thursday June 30th 2022 from 8.00 am onwards - this means there will be NO additional charges for camping!
Only SUMMERJAM visitors with a valid ticket or a valid festival wristband have access to the camping area! Please take note of the section "Camping Areas".
There is generally no entitlement for the provisioning of a certain camping space.
Wild camping is prohibited and will be rigorously enforced by the police and the security staff!
Every visitor wishing to gain access to the festival - which also includes the park and camping areas - must have a valid access authorization in the form of a festival ticket or a worn festival wristband.
By way of precaution we inform that individuals gaining access to the grounds without such proof of authorization will be prosecuted for acquisition of services under use of fraudulent means (§ 265a StGB, German penal code) and unlawful entry and breach of peace (§ 123 StGB, German penal code)!

We also inform that the camping grounds are to be used exclusively
as such: The digging of tent boundaries or the digging of holes in the ground represent damage to property and will be prosecuted by the police and by the security service.
The festival grounds are located in a local recreation area, respectively nature park and are therefore not just fields or an adventure playground.
Many thanks for your understanding.

Greener Festival is a European-wide movement with the goal to motivate guests of large events towards a more ecologically sensitive handling of nature.
The entire waste from the festival is sorted for recyclable parts at a sorting plant. Together with our garbage disposal company and you -our guests- we try to offer you garbage disposal concepts that make collection easy for you and which take the burden off the grounds – see „Garbage“.
Furthermore, for our ecologically aware visitors we offers the Green Camp (C5) – see „Camping Areas“.
The Fühlinger Lake is a nature preserve where we are guests for a weekend. Please collect your garbage and leave your camping site just the way you found it.
We provide an unlimited amount of garbage bags at the entrance and exit areas. You will find "garbage enclosures" on the camping grounds. Please deposit the garbage bags there. We will transport them away from there. Our Camping Security and the Camp Service Stations will always have free garbage bags available for you and will always help you out with advice or anything else you need.
Keep Cologne Bay Clean – “leave only footprints”.

The Blackfoot Beach offers its own BEACHCAMP. Thanks to the offered all-round carefree package you have the chance to experience a relaxed and stress-free weekend with real beach vibes and your toes in the sand. Included are a set-up tent, lighting, a discrete security check and much more.

Safety Rules

Due to recent events we have intensified the security control at SUMMERJAM. At arrival to the SUMMERJAM area there will be preliminary inspections.
Last year we fenced in the entire camping area and only guests with a valid ticket could enter. Which resulted in reduction of tent thefts by 70%. We will continue with this concept this year adding an improvement: you'll be able to get your Festival wristband at all Camp access points, which means less standing in line and waiting time. At the Festival island access points there will be intensified controls as well. All measures are synchronized in close collaboration with our and your partner - the police of Cologne. Our security personnel and the police will be ever-present in all areas. If you notice something or have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

• For safety reasons open fires, which also means grills in any form, are strictly prohibited on the camping grounds.
• It is not permitted to take animals/pets to the SUMMERJAM, neither to the festival island nor to the camping grounds.
• It is forbidden to take glass bottles into the whole camping and festival area. You can only take beverages with you in Tetra packs or P.E.T./plastic bottles .
• The use of sound systems and generators is not permitted on the entire grounds. In case of doubt we will have to ask you to leave the grounds.
• The operation of trading stalls on the camping and festival grounds is only permitted with the explicit permission of the event organizer.
• NO use of petrol
The controlled substances act (BtMG, German narcotics act) of course also applies on the entire festival grounds.
• The handling of cannabis products remains fundamentally illegal and transgressions will be subject to prosecution.
• No aggression or violence.

The camping ground is limited at the Fühlinger Lake and for festival guests ONLY. For each guest an area of 5 square meter (53 square feet) is available.
Please do not build huge pavilion or gazebo "forts" or private chill out-areas with a group of people. Otherwise we might have to ask you to take it down in order to make sure there is enough room for all of our camping guests.
The Fühlinger Lake is a nature preserve where we are guests for a weekend. Please collect your waste and garbage and leave your camping site just the way you found it.
We provide an unlimited number of garbage bags at the entrance and exit areas. You will find "garbage enclosures" on the camping grounds. Please deposit the garbage bags there. We will transport them away from there. Our Camping Security and the Camp Services will always have free garbage bags available for you and will always help you out with advice or anything else you need.

Keep Cologne Bay clean!

Still photography for personal, non-commercial use is permitted. Audio and video recordings are NOT permitted and any violation will be prosecuted.

On the camping grounds there are no restrictions regarding photography, audio and video recordings.
At the festival there will be taken photos and video recordings by accredited media outlets, journalists and the promoter. These recordings will be duplicated and used for media coverage and documentaries - distributed via print, DVD, TV and online.

We have installed various rescue points spread over the entire camping grounds. These are clearly signposted and numbered.
You will find an overview map at every Camp Service facility.

What do you do in an emergency?
In the event of an emergency call the telephone number 112 and give the following details:

- Specify the rescue point
- I am standing at the rescue point with the number …
- What happened?
- How many people were injured or are in danger?
- What is your phone-number?

Make sure someone stays at the rescue point as a contact person to instruct the rescue service when they arrive. It is mandatory to keep all access paths unblocked! – As these are rescue pathways for ambulances, fire department etc. that if necessary life can easily be saved – yours or that of your friend.

Charity bottle deposit fund
We have installed deposit collection points in all CAMP-SERVICES – just leave empty bottles there and help the environment whilst doing it!

Help us to make our camping ground safe! Due to tent break-ins in the past years we urgently request you to leave your valuables at home or to carry them with you. To prevent theft, we recommend that as soon as you have installed your tent you introduce yourself to your tent neighbours and mutually watch out for each other. A special camping security team will be proceeding against packs of thieves and illegal vendors in close coordination with the police.
To prevent tent break-ins and thefts we have provided the "safe-deposit truck" for you on P2. These are secure and guarded safe deposit boxes for your valuables for a small rental charge! Stay safe!

Kids & Youth
Children up to and including 12 years of age have free entrance (accompanied by a parent). Please take the children identity documents with you so that you can prove the age if you are questioned.
We will create an action playground for the youngest Reggae fans. Please put name tags on your children (and add your mobile number). We can not assume responsibility for the little ones.
Children up to and including 12 years of age have free admission, but must also wear a festival wristband (2 years and older).
The children’s festival wristband is available at each festival entrance at the usual opening hours. It must be collected by the parent or guardian.

Juveniles over 16 years and under 18 years of age are not required to leave the festival at midnight IF they are in the company of their legal guardian!
Under 16 years of age is also not a problem IF they are in the company of their legal guardian at any time!
Definition of a legal guardian:
Every person, who is responsible for the custody of child as a single person or together with another person according to the directions of the German Civil Code (father, mother, legal custodian), any other person older than 18 years, as soon as he or she undertakes the task of custody and has acquired the consent of the legal guardian.
If a minor is being accompanied by a guardian then the guardian must be able to present the consent of the legal custodian in written form.
This means for example if you have a chaperon with you (sister, brother, boyfriend/girlfriend…), and this person is older than 18 years old, and he or she is your legal guardian with written consent from the legal custodian and is looking after you, then you can stay at the event up to the time specified in the consent.
Here you will find such a consent form as a .PDF file, which you only have to fill out with your own data. It has to be filled out completely, and together with your passport/ID card and the one of your chaperon you will not have any problems!
It’s important that your parents/custodians give you a written consent with the transfer of the custodianship to another person for the entire duration of the festival, which you can then present in case it is necessary.



The weather at an Open-Air event is a constant companion for every visitor. Sometimes it´s a summer breeze, other times there are thunderstorms and heavy winds.
The weather changes on short notice, especially heavy storms, thunder, hail and strong gusts.
We will provide weather updates throughout the festival weekend including weather alerts of the German Meteorological Service (DWD).
All updates will be available via our festival app, Facebook, Twitter and the video screens next to the stages. Essentially it is important to maintain self-competence. This means you have to inform yourselves about emergency exits and possibilities of rescue on the festival site.

Safety measures in storms & thunderstorms:
- During thunderstorms or storms the safest place to be is in a car. Please team up with other festival visitors.
- In an open terrain please look for the lowest spot there and sit down with your legs drawn up close to your body.
- Trees DO NOT protect!
- DO NOT stand in groups! DO NOT hold hands!
- Stand clear off constructions, metal fences, light poles & flagpoles, etc - minimum distance: 3 meters / 9 feet
- DO NOT stay/get in the water!
- Close your tents and secure loose objects before leaving the festival site.

If there will be a bad weather situation, there is the possibility of a stage program interruption. Please follow the instructions and measures, inform yourselves as soon as possible about evacuation points and emergency exits. We will update you constantly via the festival app and on Facebook, if necessary via public address calls off the stages and alert messages on the video screens next to the stages.
