The Open Flair Festival – established in 1985 – is a regional institution in Eschwege, Hessen (Germany). The festival has been sold out the past years (around 20.000 visitors). A non-commercial association with now more than 800 voluntary supporters funded the festival itself. In 2017, visitors get the chance to sleep in more comfortable accommodations than tents or campers.
Party-tested since 1985
Who would have thought that the Open Flair Festival is already in its early 30’s? A young team forms the backbone of the festival. Most of the supporters are volunteers, keeping up the young spirit of the festival. About 40 people are working, beside their regular jobs, all around the year to set up this special event that is just as popular as the great, big, commercial festivals every year. Approximately 800 volunteers are taking care of the power supply on the stage, the bands needs and everything else to ensure an amazing party. Many of the campers are sleeping in tents or in an accommodation in the Eschweger city centre. The program itself is diversified – Rock music, art and a number of workshops entertain the crowd.
Open Flair Festival Camping
Hotels and guesthouses are usually booked out one year in advance. Therefore, our lodges offer a cosy and nice alternative to tents and campers. And the best thing is – they are available for the Open Flair Festival at a great, special price: For only 299.00 EUR you and a friend (or your partner) are able to sleep on site in a cosy bed for two, in your own four walls that offer a power supply, a fridge and fan, access to eco-friendly toilets as well as Wi-Fi. All included! Don’t crawl into a tent at night and sleep on the hard ground or walk for ages until you finally arrive at your accommodation in town. Better – sleep like a baby, even though you are where the party takes place – the camping area.
