Party San Open Air 2015 All the Info



The airfield Obermehler near the city of Schlotheim is for the second time home of the Party.San festival, edition 20. Because of using an airfield area some special codes of behaviour are necessary. Details later. For the first time ever we present the so-called underground stage with five bands a day. Altogether 41 bands play the Party.San in 2015. Naturally we hope being spared from damages, severe wheater and band refusals. Party.San takes place from 06.08.2015 to 08.08.2015.

Camping / Parking

The camping area is located next to the festival area and opens wednesday 05.08.2015 at 10am.

The soil is of solid, drained and nearly plane ground.

Parking on the festival area costs 10€ (parking/garbage fee) for every vehicle with more than two wheels.


  1. Lighting a camp fire  except in special boxes for designated use.
  2. Digging holes, such as to store beverages etc.
  3. Trespassing the airfield outside the provided area.
  4. Damaging technical facilities or other properties of the airfield operator or organizer.
  5. Hopping and/or damaging fences, gateways or other securing devises.
  6. Fixing steel bolts to secure tents etc. that can´t or won´t be removed.
  7. The German road-traffic regulations (StVO) apply throughout the entire area  maximum speed allowed 20 km/h. 

If we should be held liable in the event of damages, we have to allocate expenses. In consequence you have to accept higher prices. Party.San tries to offer a fair alternative to the metal community but it will not work without the support of the community.

You can park your car next to your tent. Entering the entire festival area including camping area by foot or car without valid ticket and the appropriate parking vignette is strictly forbidden.

Attention! Private power sets are strictly forbidden! 

Bigger groups

For bigger groups we accept reservations. All campers who want to camp in a group, please send an email to as soon as possible! The available space is limited!
Please send your inquiry until july 3rd 2015!

  1. the name of the tour-party/name of the club
  2. how many cars
  3. how many tents
  4. how many caravans
  5. how many persons (at least 20!) 
  6. For camp reservations we charge the following handling fees in advance:
    20 to 29 Pers. = 50,-€
    30 to 39 Pers. = 60,-€
    40 to 59 Pers. = 80,-€

  7. You have the possibility to rent your own portable toilet which will be placed directly on your reserved campground. We charge 120,-€ (incl. 3 cleanings) + 25,-€ deposit fee!

Since the free spaces were fully booked for the reservation last year, it may be possible that we are fully booked again, even before the deadline.


Again we have two stages. Bands play the main stage from thursday on. Stage two is the tent stage, where we present for the first time a second official stage (underground stage) for five bands a day. The tent stage is also in use for our aftershow parties supported by our two thuringian radio stations "The New Noise" and "Hellborn Metal Radio". The morning pint has proved very popular last year, so in 2015 a band is playing again on this occasion.


Get your tickets in advance! We do not have endless capacities! At the moment we can not make a statement about availabilities of weekend or day tickets at the box office. At the end of June we are able to say something about it.


Party.San takes place on an airfield area. That´s why we have to take care for order and cleanliness of the grounds during the departure stricter than ever before.

We have commited ourselves to pass the camping area cleaned to its owner two days after the festival. We can not realise it only with our crew as before. I.e. we have to hire a well rewarded specialist company. So there is no other way than to charge a fee for parking and garbage disposal. Once again this fee will be 10€ for each vehicle with more than two wheels. Garbage bags are distributed as before. Of course you get the Party.San calendar if you give it back well-filled. We thank you for your understanding, especially all the people who leave their ground clean.

Children and juveniles

Children and juveniles (up to 16) without legal guardian are not admitted to concert or dance events by german law (JuSchG. §9). Juveniles (16 and older) without legal guardian have access to events mentioned above until midnight.

Even so there is one exception. Download this document >>> here <<< and name a legal guardian. Complete the  form and get a sign from your parents or legal guardian. Have this document with you all the time and show it to security if requested.

Your are allowed to stay at the festival area as long as follows: up to 16 until midnight / 16 and older until your legal guardian vetoes.

Service of alcohol to children and juveniles is subject to german law (JuSchG. § 9).

Children and juveniles under 14 accompanied by a legal guardian are admitted free of charge. I.e. you have to pay if you are 14 and older.

Catering / Prices

Food and drink supply is guaranteed from wednesday 7pm to sunday morning 11am.

We pay strict attention to high quality catering. Our catering partners have order to provide affordable food and drinks. Our tried and trusted Party.San crew takes care for your drinks once again.

Arrival by car or train

The festival area is located approx. 20 km away from autobahn A38 exit Sondershausen (exit 10)  coming from the east  and A38 exit Leinefelde (exit 6)  coming from the west.

Coming from a south/southwest direction take the A71 exit Erfurt Gispersleben (exit 4)  B4 to Andisleben  L1042 to Bad Langensalza and finally B84 until exit Schlotheim.

Arrival by train is also trouble-free. Mühlhausen station is directly connected to Göttingen and Erfurt stations. The approx. 15 km way from Mühlhausen to Schlotheim/Obermehler is frequented hourly by the "RIWA 33" shuttle bus or the public country bus. The "RIWA 33" bus also shuttles between festival area and the city of Schlotheim during the whole weekend. The schedule is announced in time on our website. It is not difficult to foresee that the shuttle service will be abandoned approx. 9pm. About 2am a very last shuttle brings home Mühlhausen hotel guests.

Toilets / Showers / Supply

There will be enough free-to-use portable toilets in place. These are located next to the light towers on the runway and can be easily seen. The toilets will be cleaned daily several times. As last year we provide two sanitary bases with flush toilets and showers. The bases are located on the camping area (south) next to the runway and can be easily seen, too. The so-called flatrate ticket for using both toilets and showers is available again. Get it at service points or box office.

Of course there will be facilities for hand washing and water intake on the camping ground next to service points.

Located between main and backstage entrance you can find a beer garden in addition to the wellknown breakfast tent, opened from wednesday evening. The party tent opens from thursday August 8, daily between 7pm and 3am. Of course we stage our notorious daily after show parties.

(not) to bring along

Weapons, pyrotechnic articles and glassware is strictly prohibited. As every year we have controls at the festival entrance. Considerable violation of the rules may lead to a sending off. About glassware: all forbidden items made of glass (even nutella or gherkin jars) found at the control are withdrawn and destroyed without replacement!

Please leave this shit at home!

Dealing with food/non-food articles without license is strictly forbidden on the festival grounds for anyone but registered traders.

Some words about the unwelcomed issue of political acting and showcasing of political excesses. The shirt ban for national socialist and/or NSBM motives remains in force! The ban is valid for the entire festival and camping area. In fact we see a remarkable improvement over the last years but we have to make clear that we don´t tolerate political shit or the slightest provocation either! This is something for all sides of political display. Raw offenses always involve a report to the police.
