Southside 2010

Massive Festival

Can't wait for Southside 2010. I will update the lineup and some background info here. Hoping for some major acts and lesser known as I liked the Silversun Pickup's best last year.

Southside will add details as they emerge so I am checking their web site regularly. 50-60'000 folks expected as in every year and a grand collection of top line acts as always. Tickets are for sale in early 2010 for €99.

The event is on June 18-20, 2010.

"First time visitor's guide"

You have heard of the Southside Festival feeling and want to be part of the community?

This guide will help you make the most of the festival experience – and help to avoid possible mistakes. If you are experienced or not, ther is some useful information on the official website.


As soon as you arrive at the festival site you will have to exchange your ticket for the festival wristband. You will need it to get to the camping and festival site. If you travel in a group ask your friends to look after you luggage while you fetch the wristband. At the counter you also get an information booklet. It includes some essential information and a map. And you will get the waste bag and the chip. With the delivery of the filled garbage bags and the chip festival you will receive your 5 euro deposit.

The camping ground

At the entrance of the camping site the stewards are ordered to search your luggage. Please keep in mind that for safety reasons glass bottles aren't allowed. Broken glass has caused many injuries on the camping ground and life is easier since only cans and plastic are accepted. Then it is time to look for a nice place where you can pitch your tent.

When your tent is raised and you enjoy your first can of beer you are already part of the festival life. Take care to relocate your camping ground, try to fix a significant point near your tent and use the emergency routes so that you will find home easily. Especially in the night it is quite difficult to find your tent at once.

Head for the band!

You should enter the festival site in time if you like to hear a certain band. At both entrances you will be searched again for glass bottles, plastic bottles, cans and weapons and you must show your wristband. Now, let’s go!..."
