for the festival. The app provides you with any information you may want to know about the Nova Rock. You will have direct access to the festival map, all time tables and various information about the artists. Any time and wherever you are.

If you don’t want to miss a thing, you can mark & safe your favorite bands – the Nova Rock app will then generate a personalized time table and will notify you about the performance start on time.

Cashless

In times of questionable political decisions regarding the raise of V.A.T. and the obligation to use a cash register, we were finally confronted with the challenge to find the best solution for our guests attending Nova Rock Festival. After ample consideration of all our choices we will go the way lots of other European festivals have already gone: There will be no more cash in use at Nova Rock Festival. Payments will solely be made with a card. Further information here: www.novarock.at/cashlessfaqs

Children

Please be informed that the minimum age for the Nova Rock festival is 8 years.
The Youth Protection Act (Jugendschutzgesetz) of Burgenland applies.
There are no discounts for children of 10 years and older.

First Aid

The Red Cross and about 100 paramedics and doctors from different states of Austria are working daily at the festival area. The first-aid points at the campsite as well as the ambulance will be available 24 hours a day. The Red Cross stations at the Blue and the Red Stage will be operating during the performance.
Here some advice that may help you to avoid emergency visits:

Proper clothing

  • sun protection – wear a cap to avoid sunstroke, use sunscreen to prevent sunburn
  • rain protection – weather conditions can be unpredictable
  • warm clothes – it could get cold at night
  • solid shoes – since the festival area is on grassland, the ground is not fully even. Therefore, please wear solid shoes to prevent ankle injuries.

Health & well-being

  • Don’t forget to drink enough non-alcoholic beverages – at least two to three liters (there are free drinking fountains at the festival site!)
  • Take a break - a festival can be exhausting, don’t overexert yourself and take a rest every now and then.
  • Ear protection - we advise you to use ear plugs when standing in front of the stage or close to speakers (you can get free ear plugs at several points at the festival site!)
  • Don’t forget to bring headache pills and a sufficient amount of your prescribed medication.
  • To treat minor injuries, bring a small first-aid kit including band-aids, a tweezer, etc.
  • Please note that the Red Cross does not provide any kind of contraceptives or the „morning-after pill“.

Medication prescribed by our doctors can be ordered directly at the festival site.
Our MED-Shuttle operates daily and will get the needed medication for you. A prescription charge and a service fee will be charged in advance.

Medication brought along can be stored in a refrigerator at the Red Cross station on the campsite.

The Red Cross will help you with any kind of incidents and is available around the clock. Please do not hesitate to ask them if you need help!

Shelter during a thunderstorm

In case of thunderstorms and dangerous lightning we advise all festival visitors to proceed to their cars. Also, please help others and give them shelter in case of need.

Trash deposit

The festival area is located at a sensitive and unique natural area. In order to protect nature and keep the camping areas as clean as possible, each camper will receive a trash bag and a receipt for a deposit of 10€ upon arrival. The idea is to turn in your receipt with at least a half-full bag when you leave and get your deposit in exchange. Deposits can be claimed starting from Saturday 4:00 pm until Monday 12:00 noon. If you arrive with a tent or backpack, you will be charged a deposit, regardless of your type of ticket.

Please help us to protect the environment and keep the camping area clean!
