About Hurricane Festival

Since 1997, the Hurricane Festival takes place at the Eichenring in Scheeßel. Over the last years, the festival hosted internationally successful artists, well-known German acts and a big number of promising newcomers alike. Having its debut in 1999, the Southside Festival in the south of Germany is Hurricane’s twin offering the same lineup in Neuhausen ob Eck. Every year more than 130,000 visitors from all over Europe meet at Hurricane and Southside. A success based on the constant innovation of both festivals – for example through new forms of comfortable lodging or the innovation of the supply and food concept. In addition, both festivals boast their very own radio station: Beck’s Camp FM broadcasts live from the festival grounds and offers a web stream providing that special festival feeling all year round.



Admission to the festival and event grounds is possible only with an original festival wristband with an original, undamaged and closed seal! If this is not the case, you are not entitled to be admitted.


There are loads of essential things that you will definitely need to take with you to the festival, in order to feel comfortable and ready for all eventualities. We have listed some of these here. Remember that at first you will have to carry your luggage a long way. Sometimes less is more! 

  • Tent (don’t forget the pegs!)
  • Sleeping bag
  • Air mattress/sleeping mat
  • Small padlock to secure your tent
  • Camping cooker
  • Plates, mugs and cutlery
  • Lighter/matches
  • Tin opener
  • Flashlight, batteries
  • Car keys/keys to your home
  • Mobile phone
  • Earplugs
  • Toothbrush and toothpaste
  • Shower gel/shampoo
  • Soap
  • Towel
  • Sunscreen
  • Condoms/pill

The right clothing is also important. You should be prepared for all kinds of weather. A hat or a cap and sunglasses will protect you from strong sunshine, but you should also make sure to have rainproof gear with you. Remember that it can get quite cold at night, even if it has been scorching hot all day. 
There is a wide variety of different kinds of food stands on the festival grounds, but you are also allowed to pack a small lunch packet for the festival grounds. 
When camping we also recommend that you provide your own food and drinks. We sell almost everything cheaply in our supermarket, Super! 

Important documents:
  • Money/bank card
  • Driving license/vehicle registration papers
  • Personal ID

It is best to keep your documents and your cash in a money belt, so that you can always carry your valuables on your person. Leave any bank cards and keys that you do not need at home, so that they don’t get lost.

By the way, if you have forgotten anything, you can buy camping equipment at reasonable prices any time directly in the festival grounds from our friends at helgaa. Helgaa provides you the opportunity to buy camping equipment such as pavilions, chairs, sleeping bags, tents, etc. directly at the festival. 

Those who wish to be sure can also order online in advance. Then, all you need to do is collect your ordered items when you arrive. The stand is located directly on the campsite: www.helgaa-festival.de

The Info Point is located at the entrance to the event grounds. You will receive a site map there, as well as all the important information about the festival. The Info Point also contains the lost property office and much more.


During the festival, lost property can be handed into the collected from the Info Point. 

When Hurricane is all over, many memories, but also lost property remains behind. Over the course of the week the lost property will be sent to the Town Hall in Scheeßel. If you have lost something, you are welcome to contact the town’s lost property office. 

Please write an e-mail to the following address: 

Describe the item precisely and provide your address and a telephone number where you can be reached.

Please do not enquire by telephone, since the lost property office will be too busy collecting and categorising the lost property from Hurricane. Thank you.
