EARLY ARRIVAL is now NEW METAL FESTIVAL (www.newmetalfestival.com)
New Metal Festival (MetalDays Early Arrival): 24.7.-25.7.2020. Possible only with the New Metal Festival ticket.
Early arrival to the festival area is available from:
Friday, 24.7.2020 from 08.00 till Saturday, 25.7.2020, to 23.59 (24/7) and possible only with the New Metal Festival ticket.
Also, please note that those of you arriving at the New Metal Festival cannot reserve camping grounds for your friends, who are planning to arrive after the New Metal Festival! We will remove all tapes or any signs of reserved camping space.
Please be advised that the use of fossil fueled generators is not allowed at the festival camping area. Solar electric generators are allowed. You will be able to reserve an electrical plug at Parking & Camping area soon. 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 hook-up fee is 80€ (Incl. VAT) for the festival duration. You NEED TO HAVE YOUR OWN CABLE. 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 electricity 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 in 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 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 a current leakage to the ground. Such a 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 plug in 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.
Festival venue map will be available later.
