Safer Space

The B-Sides Festival is committed to equality, sustainability and diversity. The festival is a safe space for everyone. No form of discrimination or abusive behavior will be tolerated.

The nature of the Sonnenberg is valued and taken care of, food and beverages are mostly locally sourced and biologically made.

The festival area is a public space. Photos will be taken by the B-Sides photo team. If you see a photo you don't want on the internet, you can contact directly.

Care Team

Two trained helpers are there for you and open for philosophical questions, anti-love-sickness hug wishes or just chats. You will find them between the sanitary tent and the coffee tent. Is there something on your mind, would you like to talk to someone or is something unpleasant at the festival? Then you are in the right place and there are open ears and hearts at your disposal.
We listen.
We care!
