Frequently Asked Questions

Great question! Yes, you’re welcome to bring friends or even a group of friends to the festival. This year, we’ve expanded the allowance, so feel free to bring more people along. However, if you plan to bring more than 5 guests per person, we kindly ask that you contact us beforehand. This is to ensure we can accommodate everyone without exceeding our festival capacity. Remember, every attendee must have a ticket, so be sure to secure tickets for each of your friends as well.

We’re committed to making the festival an incredible experience for all attendees. Should you wish to bring a large group, reaching out to us will help us make the necessary arrangements. We’re here to assist and ensure everyone has a memorable time.

At the Backyard Skull Festival, we firmly believe that music and community should be inclusive, accessible to all, regardless of financial constraints. That’s why we’ve chosen not to set fixed ticket prices for our event. Instead, we suggest a donation of 20 Euros per ticket, though any amount you can contribute is deeply appreciated. Your donation, whether big or small, helps us continue to curate unforgettable musical experiences for our festival community. Join us in this incredible journey, where every contribution ensures the beat goes on. Thank you for being a part of our vibrant community!


If you’re looking to fully enjoy the festival without camping, preferring to stay in a hotel or at home, then the non-camping ticket is perfect for you.

For the complete festival experience with an overnight stay at the festival site, you should go for the camping ticket.

This year, we’ve introduced an important change for those of you planning to arrive with a caravan: there is now a special ticket for caravan camping. This ticket is required per caravan in order to reserve a pitch.

Another transportation option is the train. For more information see the questions below.

Non-alcoholic beverages, water, and beer will be available. We are currently finalizing the details as we need to carefully review the legal situation. There’s a possibility that we may require a license, even for a private event. We will inform you about the prices and options as soon as everything is conclusively clarified.

Please note that lunch options will be available for purchase, including the possibility of a collective pizza order, where each participant pays for their own order.
