Freiland Sommerfest

B Bee Public Seen by 30

Hey all,

So those of you who were at our KORG meeing at Spark (or keeping up with the meeting notes) will know we have been offered 10x tickets by Freiland for their event! Please read the details underneath & let us know if you would want to go. If you have area related needs on site leave a comment underneath please.

17-18 July 2021 (Build 16 July)

Freiland Sommerfest Facebook Event

We (the Board) were not sure how these would be distributed fairly so this thread is open for those who wish to share their interest in going to this event. We see it as important that Safety Lead(s) have an option to visit the site, also Water & Toilet Realizers are both waiting to see the results of the Freiland Build & how it impacts further planning.

If we have if too many requests for the amount of tickets available, we suggest a lottery. However for those going to site there are some important details of gelände progress we would need to get from those who attend.

Action Items:

Toilets situation!
How many fully functioning toilets are there?
What is the waste solution for Freiland's festival?
Photos good if no Realizer on site.

Where is it coming from? Water-net
What system or network do the Freiland folk have set up for their festival?

Grey Water
How is it being disposed? For Kieze, water points and showers.

Document for Showerhead & team (are the showers complete? missing parts?)
Any important info relevant - we are expecting newly built showers.

New Structures
Photos & measurements of any new structures.

Safety check
On said structures, including for example the new staircase to the large lake from the Effigy hill.

Check if all the existing structures have been repaired (there were many holes in the stairs, etc)

Check if the former Kinder Kiez (now Mellow Submarine, 1st Aid..) & Süsskiez (now Nubicuculia) Areas have been cleaned out from wood rests and old cars, and the grass being cut.

Check if they have taken down the damaged wooden planks on top of the stage in UnderWorld. The basic construction (stones below) should stay.


Check out Freiland's Gate layout and process (covid testing, queuing etc.) and document learnings if possible

Storage : Welfare & Water

Bring back blankets for Welfare from storage so they can be washed in Berlin
(Need to confirm with Freiland that we can have access to storage!)

Check number of water cubes (1000l) & report to Hans

Site Planning
Taking pictures of all the different areas once they are mowed/cleared of vegetation, to get a more accurate representation of the spaces.

Cell phone signal? ( see this thread )

Anything else?...

Nice to have: There is a pile of good building wood at the Cuddle Puddle area. We agreed with Freiland that they will leave parts of it for Kiez Burn build. If you have the time, you can separate the good from the rotten wood so that only the stuff we don't need gets burned... (non-essential task)

Things to confirm before the Event with Freiland:

  • Probably confirm number of tickets?

  • When can we arrive? (Can we come to Build on Friday or only Saturday Morning?)

  • Will storage be open?

  • When can we go to storage / Can we go to storage on Saturday after we checked in the Event?

  • add more..

Since we didn't have more demand than needs - those who voted will all be able to go and we can discuss again at the next KORG (tonight) which Realizers or other community members we can extend the 3 (or 2) extra tickets to.

Those confirmed:
Myself, @Mareike @Cris @Sven Dudink @Franzi @Diarmaid @Jack
@Nics ??

Tickets are limited to 10. Although this will be a lovely nice festival and an opportunity to relax a little - we also would need some scouting for Kiez Burn / pre-Burn duties to attend to also.

Yes, I have no urgent needs but am happy to help collect info.

Would be happy to go and check the state of the new gate area and seeing how Freiland is organizing their corona-testing gate. Not life or death urgent need, but would be helpful.


Sven Dudink Tue 29 Jun 2021 5:22AM

Yes this impacts my area directly.

Yes, i would like to see the water situation, and also i would like to observe how they handle power and light, as you mentioned build on the 16th, @Bee are we also invited to build?


Franzi Tue 29 Jun 2021 1:42PM

Yes, I have no urgent needs but am happy to help collect info.

Veroca R. Sala Mon 28 Jun 2021 9:35PM

I tag the toilet team: @Jack is you(?) / @Nics and Don (toolbitch and build technical lead)

@Major Tom the shower head

Build safety onsite @Stefan Rothenhausler ?


Jack Tue 29 Jun 2021 10:10PM

hi! @Veroca R. Sala Yes this impacts my area directly. It would be great to know the toilet situation especially if the on-site toilets work for build/strike and how the waste management is done. (sorry I cant seem to vote in the poll)


Nics Wed 30 Jun 2021 11:45AM

Thanks for tagging us @Veroca R. Sala. Don & I potentially interested to go as never been to site so that could be really useful given our roles. There is a small chance Don needs to be in the US that weekend but we'll know more end of this week.


Veroca R. Sala Mon 5 Jul 2021 10:09AM

@Jack that is because the poll was closed. But we keep your name as one f those that would need to be onsite. Are you actually able and willing to be there on those dates?


Jack Tue 6 Jul 2021 6:50PM

Hi @Veroca R. Sala yes I am able to come and would love to meet some of you in person there🙂
