  • new arrangement and more sanitary facilities
  • additional huge PENNY Store (Campsite B)
  • additional campsite check-in area for less waiting periods
  • market place with food offer
  • chill-out areas with attractive ambiance
  • another pre-party at Desert Valley on Thursday
  • locker at Campsite A and Campsite B
  • …more innovations will be announced in 2018!

This is the heart of our campsite! Whether you’re a fast-food junkie or a festival gourmet, whether you’re looking for cold cans of WARSTEINER beer or for water, grilling meat, fruit or fresh bread, our PENNY Store has everything the festival-goer’s heart desires, all at the original discounted prices you’re accustomed to from PENNY – on Campsite A and Campsite B!

Pay for your PENNY Store purchases comfortably with cash or your EC debit card or a credit card. SPECIAL: Need cash? No problem! With purchases of at least 20 Euros, our PENNY Store will give you up to 200 Euros in cash drawn on your EC debit card. If you still want to bring everything from home, that’s fine too. Attention: Food and drinks you have brought with you can only be consumed on the campsite, not on the Festival Site. In addition, no glass whatsoever is permitted on the entire Festival Site and the Campsite!


The PENNY Camp is a seperate area close to the well known PENNY Store at Campsite A. Upgrades are available via your personal MyTicket-Portal. More information here.


One day before festival start we will throw our Pre-Party again – beside our PENNY DJ Tower (Campsite A) we will open Desert Valley, too.

Comfort Camp/Deluxe Camp

After the successful premiere in 2017, we will expand our accomodations in this area. In 2018 we will host both Comfort Camp and Deluxe Camp close to festival venue. Bus-shuttles will not be needed anymore, festival venue is accissible by foot via Campsite A. After a safety check Comfort Camp and Deluxe Camp attendees have the opportunity to join Campsite A, Campsite B and the pre-parties.


Capacity at the PAROOKAVILLE Campsite is limited, so all campsite residents are required to set up their tents close to one another and make sure to build up tents etc. with as few space inbetween as possible. The general guidline is that at least two people should share tents designed for 2-3 people. Of course you can bring your own tents, sleeping bags, sleeping mats etc. Alternatively, you can also buy tents and related equipement in the PENNY Store on the campsite at affordable prices. Large (group) tents with more than 8 sleeping spaces are not permitted! Our security personnel will examine the tent sizes when you enter the campsite. Instructions from our security personnel must be followed at all times! To ensure a space-saving structure on the campsite our security personnel will open the individual campsite lots gradually. As soon as one area is filled up with enough tents, the next area will be opened. Therefore it is not predictable how fast and in which direction the campsite will be filled up. This also means that the first residents on scene will probably not camp at the popular area around the PENNY store. Caravans, cars and trailers are not permitted on the campsite!


Classic pavilions (3×3 meters) are permitted for groups of 5 or more people. Our security personnel will also check on this, both during check-in and during the set-up. Instructions from our security personnel must be followed at all times! In the PENNY Camp only pavilions can be set up, which residents receive from PENNY – additional pavilions are not permitted.


You can stow your valuables in one of our lockers. For the first time we will offer lockers in all areas:

Thursday to Monday: Campsite A, Campsite B, Comfort Camp, Deluxe Camp
Friday to Sunday: festival venue (Attention: all lockers are accessible during the opening hours!)


PAROOKAVILLE is one of the few festivals in Europe that does not use portable chemical toilets. Instead, in 2018 you can again look forward to our comfortable toilet cabins with conventional flushing facilities. All toilet areas are conveniently located so that you can easily reach them in only a few minutes. All toilets are free of charge and cleaned several times a day. In the event that new toilet paper is needed or a toilet needs cleaning, please notify the cleaning team on-site.


To wash off the sweat from dancing, you can use our familiar festival washing troughs and our numerous shower containers located on the campsite. The washing troughs (with drinking water) can be used free of charge at all times. The shower cabins with warm water can be used for a surcharge for each shower (1 token; free for VIP attendees). Be sure to take advantage of our Shower-Happy-Hour from 5:30 to 8:00 a.m. for halfprice (1/2 Token).

(Drinking) Water

Fresh, free drinking water is available to all campsite residents at all times at our toilet and shower locations.


There is always a touch of adventure to PAROOKAVILLE! This is why electricity is only available for hair dryers or shaving at the shower containers. Smartphones can be charged with the help of Power Banks at the charging stations, but you need to bring your own charging cable.

Attention: No electricity generators of any kind or car batteries are permitted on the campsite! Our security personnel will also check for this during check-in. If you want to listen to music from your own speakers please observe the regulations under the heading “Music”.

Campsite Currencies

You can pay for purchases at the PENNY Store with cash, your EC debit card or by credit card. Showers and Power Banks on the campsite are paid for using Token (1 Token = 3 Euro). Tokens are available at our Bank of PAROOKAVILLE, where you can also stock up on tokens for the Festival Site since everything on the site is paid with tokens as well.

During the officially posted Bank of PAROOKAVILLE business hours you can exchange your tokens for cash again. For informational purposes the precise regulations for token exchange will be publically posted. EXCHANGING TOKENS FOR CASH IS NO LONGER POSSIBLE ONCE PAROOKAVILLE 2018 IS FINISHED!

Grilling, Cooking & Fire

Grilling with disposable and three-legged grills is fundamentally permitted in front of the tent, but must be supervised at all times. The use of grills and gas cookers inside tents is strictly forbidden due to the danger of asphyxiation! ACUTE DANGER!

Please note that the use of ethyl alcohol, petrol or any other combustible liquids is strictly forbidden! The use of commercially available solid charcoal igniters is permitted in accordance with their usage instructions. Grills may not be left unsupervised while burning or burning out. Charcoal is not permitted to burn out on the grass or in the normal rubbish containers. There will be special grilling charcoal containers where charcoal must be disposed of. If poor weather threatens we will inform you in good time and we may be forced to temporarily ban grilling.

In the event of fire notify the Security Personnel immediately. Security Personnel will be on hand throughout the entire event on the campsite at the designated locations on the map. Gas camping cookers may only be used with gas cartridges (screw-on canisters and valve cartridges, for instance like those from CampingGaz) up to a maximum filling weight of 450 grams. Camping cookers that use liquid fuel are not permitted. In addition, open fires and campfires are fundamentally forbidden, as is bringing pyrotechnic materials of any kind! Our Security Personnel will check for this during check-in.


A festival is all about music, so of course recorded music can be played and listened to on the campsite. However, no aggregates or car batteries are permitted. Smaller Bluetooth speakers are permitted as long as they are operated using the batteries from the manufacturer. No self-built extra batteries or the like are permitted! Please respect your campsite neighbours with the volume of your music. The PENNY Tower will provide live DJ sets and other music for the entire campsite for 5 whole days!

Lost & Found

Lost items can be turned in or picked up from the Lost-&-Found Office at the Info-Point on the campsite and on the Festival Site. Lost items that are not picked up by the end of the festival will be transferred to the Lost-&-Found Office of the city of Weeze and can be picked up there.

Rubbish/Rubbish Disposal

Please help us keep the PAROOKAVILLE Campsite clean by disposing of your rubbish in the rubbish cans and containers regularly! To ensure that this all works better, there is a rubbish deposit of 10 Euros which is already included in the price of your ticket. When you check in at the campsite you will receive an empty rubbish bag and a corresponding rubbish deposit coin. As soon as you hand over the full rubbish bag and the rubbish deposit coin at one of the rubbish collection points, your 10 Euro deposit is refunded to you. Important: Please check the signs for the collection point opening hours!


Here you go, straight and to the point: All glass bottles and glass containers represent an injury hazard and are therefore prohibited! Extensive inspections will be conducted during your check-in. Beverages and food in Tetra packaging, PET bottles and cans are absolutely OK. And of course you can also get all the beverages you need at our PENNY Store on the campsite. Cosmetic articles (such as perfume, deodorant, make-up) in glass containers are also prohibited and will be confiscated by our Security Personnel and disposed of! Shisha pipes are generally permitted, but only with acrylic bowls. Confiscated glass bottles and glass containers will not be stored at the entrance and cannot be picked up later!


Animals are great, but they don’t belong on the PAROOKAVILLE Campsite!

Security inspections (including “frisking” and bag inspections) will be carried out by our security personnel.
