FESTIVAL ABC

MetalDays

24.07.-30.07.2022

Tolmin, Slovenia

 

NOTICE: 

Due to the anti-pandemic measures, and due to the ongoing road works at the festival site, and constant changes to the festival regulations by Municipality Council, all information stated in this ABC is subject to change at the very last minute.
Although the promoter will inform about any changes via official festival channels, it is kindly advised to check the ABC section regularly. 

 

"AFTERPARTY"

Since music in the open space is only allowed until 01:00 (according to the decision of the Municipal Council from March 2022), we decided to make an "AfterParty" for the first time in the hotel between the two stages. The capacity is limited to 400 people.
The "AfterParty" will have bars, operating with MetalDays Paycard, indoor toilets, sofas for relaxing, DJ music, and an additional program (which has not yet been decided in detail).
Entrance is free on a first-come, first-served basis.
The entrance/exit is on the side of the 2nd stage. It will be marked, you will simply find it, or just ask someone. MetalDays is a small festival, just ask people.
The "AfterParty" will be held every night until 04:00.

"AfterParty" working hours: Saturday 23.07. 2022,
20:00-04:00

ARRIVAL

ALL VISITORS ARRIVING ON 23. AND 24. 07. MUST FIRST CHECK IN TO  THE BOX OFFICE NEAR HOFER OR AT DIJASKA STREET TO PICK UP THEIR WRISTBANDS AND TO GET PARKING TAGS IF THEY CAME WITH CARS.

When you come to the festival, you can choose the entrance at Hofer or the entrance on Dijaska street. You can get your festival bracelets, buy tickets, and parking at both entrances.

The entrance at Dijaska Street is open on July 23. and 24. 2022 or until parking lot 3 is full.

To understand where the entrances are please look at the festival map:
https://www.metaldays.net/festival-ma

After the entrance at Dijaska Street is closed, only the main entrance at Hofer will be open for festival visitors, regardless of whether they have a full festival ticket, a 3-day ticket, or a 1-day ticket.

ATM
There will be an option to withdraw money from an ATM machine, which will be placed inside the festival area, near the Festival Info point. We will do our best to work closely together with the bank providing the ATM machine in order to ensure that the ATM always has enough cash for our visitors’ needs.

BEACH

The main beach is no longer part of the festival area by the decision of the Municipal Council on March 29, 2022.

For you, this means that you will normally be able to spend your time on the beach as before. The difference is that we, the organizers of the festival, will not have any additional programs on the beach, we will not have food stalls at the beach, and we are not responsible for safety in the water and on the coast, which means that we will not have any staff on the beach.

The use of the beach is solely at your own risk.

The beach is open to anyone who wants to come to the beach, so you can expect that the beach will not be just visited by the festival-goers.

An additional hassle-free wristband check will be set up near the 2nd stage, similar to 2021. Weekend of Solace visitors knows what we are talking about.

Despite all changes, the beach can be enjoyed as usual; for swimming, sunbathing, chillin' floating...it is up to you how you will use it.

There will still be a simple bar on the beach, operating with MetalDays Paycard, so you will have the opportunity to enjoy cocktails while lying on the beach or swimming in cold Soca or Tolminka.

.

“Silent hours” at the festival camping area are from 01.00 to 08.00, when the campsite area has to be quiet and without any music. Please keep your voices down and be mindful of your friends and neighbors, who are trying to get some rest. Obeying this very strict “silent hours” rule, as written above, is mandatory; we are obliged to remind you that anyone who attempts to disobey this very strict rule will be removed from the festival area with revoked access, without any further explanation.

CAMPING WITH 3-day & 1-day TICKETS (if available)
Included in the ticket price, but possible only until the next morning after the validity - expiration period of the ticket, until 11:00.

CAMPING FOR GROUPS
Due to ongoing construction works on the bypass road, there are changes in the Group Camping rules in 2022.
You can come in a large group and camp together. What we don't do in 2022, is WE DO NOT reserve group camping places for you. That is the only difference. 

*Camping is at one's own risk, the festival promoter accepts no responsibility in any case!

 

CAMPING AND PARKING REGIME

Due to the construction site on the bypass road, the camping, and the parking regime has been drastically changed this year.
We are very sorry that we cannot offer the comfort you are used to at MetalDays, but so many things that are happening right now regarding the festival are beyond our power and influence.
That is why we ask you to cooperate with the festival staff, security personnel, and guides who will show you how and where to park.

This applies to Personal vehicles that would like to move around daily for site visiting:
IF YOU PARK IN PARKING LOT 4 AND 5, YOU ARE ALLOWED TO DRIVE YOUR CAR FROM THE PARKING LOT DAILY AND TO RETURN BACK TO THE PARKING LOT AT ANY TIME.
This applies to Personal vehicles that will be parked at parking lots 1,2, and 3.:

MOVING AROUND WITH THE CAR IS STILL NOT POSSIBLE IN PARKING LOTS 1, 2, AND 3.

To understand where parking lots are placed please look at the festival map:
https://www.metaldays.net/festival-map

This applies to caravans, campers, and personal vehicles with tents on the roof;
Personal vehicles are required to go to the parking lot, and from the parking lot, you must carry your equipment to the place you have chosen for camping.
Caravans will be directed to a designated place in the camp, where they will have the opportunity to leave their trailer and then have to return the car to the parking lot.
Campers will be directed to a designated place in the camp where they can park and stay there during the festival.
Personal vehicles with tents on the roof will be directed to a designated place in the camp where they can park and stay there during the festival.

Leaving this parking zone with vehicles daily is not possible this year. We ask for your understanding, cooperation, and respect for the instructions of the security service.
The parking lots have security personnel, as every year until now. Your cars will not be blocked, in case you have to leave the festival urgently, and you don't have to wait for the "car behind you" to leave the festival so you can go home. The reason why you cannot leave some parking lots this year is the lack of roads in the area of the camp and parking lot, for reasons already mentioned several times.
The surroundings of Tolmin offer fantastic locations that can be visited on foot. If you intend to drive around the region during the festival, we advise you to find parking elsewhere.
We emphasize once again that this year is very complicated in terms of organization, and at the same time, we ask for your cooperation and respect for the instructions.
Only together we can make MetalDays 2022 pleasant and fun.


CHILDREN
For children up to 12 .years of age (12 .years olds included), the entrance is free. Please note, that children can only enter the festival grounds if accompanied by a parent or a legal guardian, who is in possession of a valid MetalDays Festival ticket. Children of all ages are very welcome at our festival, but please act as a responsible parent or legal guardian, and make sure that your children wear sound protection at all times, especially when being close to, or in front of any stages/areas where music is loud! Please also keep in mind that earplugs, the ones continuously used during the festival by adults, are not efficient and sufficient sound protection for those little fragile ears. The only sound protection that should be used is the real sound protectors (headphones). Wearing sound protection as written above is mandatory; so we have to remind you that anyone who attempts to disobey this very strict rule will be removed from the festival area with revoked access, without any further explanation.
Children's ear protection will be available for rent at GSM CHARGING/SAFE DEPOSIT box.

CUP DEPOSIT, GARBAGE DEPOSIT & MetalDays PAYCARD/PAYMENTS
CUP DEPOSIT
Every cup (reusable cup, bottle, can) is subject to a 3€ deposit, which will be charged to your MetalDays PayCard. Every time you order the "first" drink, your MetalDays PayCard will be charged with a 3€ deposit amount. For every following drink purchase, and in case you have your used cup with you, your MetalDays PayCard will not be charged with another deposit. Bar personnel will simply give you a new one with every next drink you order. To get your cup deposit back, you to bring your MetalDays PayCard with you an empty cup to the cup deposit point, where your cup deposit will also be loaded to your MetalDays PayCard. The number of empty cups/containers has to match the number of deposits that your MetalDays PayCard has been charged with, and you can only get the matching amount of cups and cup deposits loaded to your MetalDays PayCard.

GARBAGE DEPOSIT
In order to obtain your MetalDays wristband, it is mandatory to pay the Garbage Deposit, unless you are not staying in MetalDays camp. As its name says, it is a deposit, which means that you will get the money back once you return full garbage bags to the garbage point. If you are staying in a hotel or an apartment, please take proof of your accommodation with you to the wristband office. If you are staying in a hotel or an apartment and you do not have proof of accommodation with you, you will need to pay a garbage deposit. However, you don’t need to worry, because you will have a whole week to verify that you are not staying at the festival camp. Upon verification, you’ll get your money back and you won’t need to return full garbage bags.

HOW GARBAGE DEPOSIT WORKS
…explained in 5 easy steps:
Step 1. Upon arrival, you will receive your MetalDays PayCard and garbage bags.
Step 2. You have to load your MetalDays PayCard with the max amount of 100€ directly at the Box office.
Step 3. Our personnel is going to deduct 10€ from your MetalDays PayCard for garbage deposit.
Step 4. Return your full garbage bags to one of the garbage points during the festival.
Step 5. Upon returning garbage bags to the garbage points, your garbage will be inspected by our personnel to make sure that proper waste separation was done; if that is the case, your MetalDays PayCard will be loaded with 10€ (garbage deposit).

ELECTRIC GENERATORS
Please be advised that the use of fossil-fuelled generators is not allowed at the festival camping area. Solar electric generators are allowed. You can reserve an electrical plug for the Parking & Camping area. The number of electric outlets is limited to 150, so make sure to reserve yours in time.
Details about electric outlets: Each is 6 amp, and the hook-up fee is 80€ (incl. VAT) for the festival duration. You NEED TO HAVE YOUR OWN CABLE. The power plug & outlet is Type CEE (Type CEE is used in all countries of Europe except for the United Kingdom, Ireland, Cyprus, and Malta).
Upon arrival, please inform our personnel at the box office that you need help with the electrical hook-up. They will give you all the necessary instructions. Hooking up will be done by our technician. You need to show him proof of payment. He will also provide his contact, so you can reach him in case of any issues provide a 230V supply, which can power most of the appliances you might use at home. However, we have restricted supplies, rated at 6A each, so you need to be careful what you use to avoid ‘tripping out’ the system.
Tripping the electrical supply can make you an undesirable person on site. The least you will need to do is contact the site manager to ask him to reset the system. In cases of “extending” your supply to your friends, you will also be responsible for cutting the electricity supply to your friends’ pitches.
Use electricity with care
Be very careful. Electricity can be dangerous, especially in the damp conditions of a tent or in the open air. Even a 12V battery can give you a nasty shock if used incorrectly. However, if used in the right way, you can benefit from mains electricity and, if you take the right precautions, you can use it safely.
We recommend you use a 25 m cable because the layout of pitches means you can be pitched a fair distance from the hook-up bollard. However, if you’re closer to the bollard, you should still uncoil the full length of your cable, to avoid it overheating during use. Avoid using extension cables. If you need to, always use weather-proof connectors and keep the connection off the ground – to avoid water getting inside.
Many tents now include a small zipped flap where the cable can enter the tent, so cables don’t need to cross the entrance.
Making life safer
Most caravans, motorhomes, and folding campers have electrical equipment fitted by design. If you are bringing electricity into a tent, you will need to buy a special hook-up lead with two or more damp-proof sockets, each of which will take an ordinary 13A plug, as you would use at home.
Residual Current Devices (RCDs)
Every outlet has its own RCD. One of the reasons for using a properly-designed electrical connection to your unit is that a Residual Current Device (RCD), the safety device, will be wired into the circuit. This is designed to cut off the supply immediately in the case of current leakage to the ground. Such leakage can occur when someone touches a damp appliance especially if the person is standing on damp ground, which can easily happen in a tent.
Keep it all dry
Tents (especially tent floors) can be damp and moisture and electricity do not mix well together. The socket end of the cable will usually have some means of fixing it well above ground level. Oftentimes, special clips will enable it to be fixed to a frame tent pole off the ground. Arranging to mount it off the ground in other tents, especially those with flexible poles, can be more difficult. The equipment you plugin must also be placed safely. Don’t use electrical equipment on the tent floor as leaks or condensation could lead to dampness.
How much power
You’ll also need to think about the equipment you want to use on-site. At home, you’ll probably have plenty of sockets and it’s rare to overload them, but a campsite socket can be easily overloaded. If you are using an electric kettle, it really ought to be a small camping one. Heaters should be low-powered and ideally designed for camp life; don’t try to use your heater and kettle at the same time – if you do, you could overload your pitch socket, causing it to cut out, and you may even cut out other sockets on the campsite.

THE ELECTRIC PLUG UPGRADE AREA
The Electric Plug Upgrade can only be used in the designated area. To know where this area is located please look at the festival map.
Every Electric Plug Upgrade owner has access to the Electric Plug Upgrade area, whether they come with a camper, a car, or just a tent. Friends of those who have Electric Plug Upgrade can not camp and park in Electric Plug Upgrade area. The Electric Plug Upgrade area is surrounded by areas reserved for camping, so we advise your friends to set up tents in the area designated for camping. With a long enough cable, you can "lend" them electricity, provided you do not exceed the voltage you have available.
*Electric Plug Upgrades for 2022 are already sold out! The Electrics Plug upgrades purchased in 2019/2022 roll for 2022 without the need to change them.

PHOTOGRAPHING

PROHIBITED OBJECTS
Objects that are prohibited to bring in the festival area: cans, bottles, hard drugs, objects that can be used as projectiles, knives, and of course any kind of weapons and other objects that can be used as such. Leave those things at home; you won't be able - in any case - to get into the festival area with them! Of course, you are allowed to bring your cutlery to the Campsite, but not to the Stage Site!

REPORT ILLEGAL ACTIVITIES
We believe that our visitors are our friends and we also try to treat you all the same. But sometimes it could happen that some of our visitors are not behaving in a friendly manner - and we would like to know if something like that happens. Therefore, we encourage all our visitors to report anything unusual to our security staff or at the festival Info point.
We would like to make sure that all our visitors are safe at all times and feel welcome as well, and by reporting any kind of illegal activities you spot in the festival area, you are helping us a lot in terms of keeping you and your mates safe. We would like to thank you for your cooperation in advance.

RISK OF PARTICIPATION
Every visitor participates in the festival at his/her own risk. Also, every visitor is obliged to take action for the warranty of his/her own safety. The visitors are also responsible for their own property that they bring along to the festival. The promoter, MH Music Holiday GmbH is not liable for any lost or damaged property whatsoever! MH Music Holiday GmbH is also not liable for violations of Slovenian law, thievery, injuries, or damages by third parties that happen during the course of the festival.

RUNNING ORDER
The running order is available here

 

SANITARY FACILITIES
Please keep the toilet and shower facilities clean so that other people can use them conveniently after you! In the camping area, of course, toilets and showers will also be available in the camping area.

 

SECURITY
The instructions of the security personnel are NOT to be followed voluntarily but obligatory! Please, avoid senseless annoying actions so that everybody can feel comfortable! There is also one representative of our Security crew at the festival info point, who will be happy to answer all your questions, complaints, or ideas about security at the festival area. Even if you just feel you need to say thank you or pay them a compliment, feel free to stop by. They will be happy to help or listen to what you have to say.

SINGLE GIRLS CAMPING
If you are a single girl, traveling alone and want to meet and hang out with other girls that travel alone, this camp area may be suitable for you. The area reserved for single girls is in the festival camping area, right next to the Ian Fraser "Lemmy" Kilmister stage (beginning of the camp), on the right-hand side, and next to the first set of warm showers. This area is close to all the important facilities and offers secure access and additional light, so we believe that the spot is perfect for those who may not feel comfortable wandering in the dark to some remote part of the camp area where they have set up their tent, and where they are going to sleep alone in the dark area. Please, be aware that single girls camping does not offer any "special" or additional program to the camp participants. It is nothing less but an area that offers more security than the rest of the camp area. It is closer to the first aid, and security headquarter, has more light and it is an overall safer place for those that may not feel ok camping alone. 

 

SHOP
The official festival shop for MetalDays is Hofer, and it is situated near the main entrance.

 

SHUTTLE SERVICE
The Festival promoter cooperates with 3rd party shuttle service provider, which offers shuttle services from nearby airports and other destinations to the festival area. You can find more details in the travel section of our page.

 

STAGE TIMES 2022

Due to the current poor situation with air transport, flight cancellations, and delays, MetalDays wants to warn that changes in stage time and running order are very possible, and will very likely happen.
MetalDays and all the bands performing at the 2022 edition are working hard to ensure that such changes or band cancellations do not occur.

We must also warn that by the decision of the Municipal Council from March 2022, we have a strict curfew and we can play on both stages only until 01:00.
The main stage ends at 00:00, which leaves us with 1 hour of possibility to manipulate the stage time in case of delay of the bands arriving by plane, but the 2nd stage, which ends planned at 01:00, has no possibility of any manipulation.

We hope for the best, and we want the running order and lineup to remain as planned, but we also leave the possibility of unpleasant changes.


SWIMMING
Swimming and other sports activities are undertaken at your own risk! The Festival promoter does not guarantee that there is a professional lifeguard available at the main festival beach area.
