In the beginning there was a city with its people, an airport with its unparalleled history – and a wish to create a music festival right there, right then, for all people. It was to be a meeting place for cultures, to bring people together, to connect and allow differences and similarities to be shared and celebrated.
We create a place where people who enjoy music can come together. People who want to have a good time with friends but are still open to meeting new people and who want to just feel free. Fun and comfort accompany the wish to enjoy live music and culture together, to be inspired by new people, and discover new things.
We are thankful for the freedom and the possibility the present day holds for us. The future is now. We show our appreciation through an ecological awareness and a sustainable approach. We are a part of the societal shift and are aware that music festivals are only really fun when they happen with a sense of the common good. And that is what Tempelhof Sounds has in mind – along with a lovingly selected line-up. It’s for those who are simply curious. With diverse, regionally connected, and high-quality culinary options in a relaxed “summer after work’’ atmosphere, Tempelhof Sounds will draw into the city of Berlin and find its way right to the heart.

Leave at home
It should be possible for every music fan to visit Tempelhof Sounds and we make a great effort so our guests with a disability can enjoy a relaxing and unforgettable festival experience. We give much thought to how we can make the process of accessibility at our festival better and more accommodating. We are always very glad to hear your ideas and suggestions at firstname.lastname@example.org
Wheelchair-accessible platforms will be built in front of the first and second stage. Depending on the occupancy, our guests who have a handicap ID but do not have a wheelchair can stay there. The entire event area is asphalted and thus enables wheelchair-accessible stays in all event areas.
If you have a “B” on your ID you are entitled to bring an accompanying person free of charge. It is not necessary to register in advance. However, if you contact us in advance via email at email@example.com
you will support us in our planning. The wristbands will be assigned after you present your ID at the entrance. Please note that we can only check in accompanying persons who arrive together with the person with a disability.
You will find barrier-free toilets with hand-washing facilities on site.
For those of you bringing medications with you to the festival: Medical verification concerning the necessity of your medication will help guarantee that you will be allowed to bring them onto the event grounds. Medication which needs to be stored cooled can be given to the medical service in the medical tents. There the medications can be refrigerated for you.
Please note that it is possible that some acts will use strobe lighting / effects as part of their performance.
We also think music is at its most beautiful when it’s loud and you can feel it. The music will stay with you just as long with hearing protection, and in fact all the longer. We measure the noise level continuously but we advise you nonetheless to wear ear plugs. If you don’t have any ear plugs with you we can supply you with them at the info point.
All laws and legal procedures apply at the event site. The festival was planned with the responsible security authorities and is supervised by the police, the fire brigade, and the medical service. Furthermore, hundreds of marshals (security) are on duty to make the festival safe and to ensure fun for you and everyone involved.
In an emergency, please contact our security staff at any time - they know what to do and will help you immediately. If necessary, our security service will put you in touch with the police.
Should something seem strange to you please do not hesitate to make a report, even if you are not sure if it is really an emergency. Did you see something? Say something! Better one too many times than one too few.
If there is a medical emergency, the paramedics at the festival will be alerted simultaneously by our security staff. Prepare yourself for the following questions:
Everyone should feel equally welcome and comfortable at Tempelhof Sounds. That is why we stand for open, tolerant, and respectful behavior with one another. Without exception, we advocate equality, diversity and justice and have no tolerance for any form of discrimination and discriminatory attitude.
We ask that everyone show consideration and moral courage for a safe festival so that it becomes an unforgettable festival experience for each of us. The domiciliary right lies with the promoter and their authorized third party during the entire festival. The instructions of the security staff of the promoter must be followed.
People who wear clothing with inhuman, homophobic, right-wing extremist, or any other discriminatory background or who carry racist, xenophobic and/or radical propaganda material will not be allowed to enter the grounds and will not be given a ticket refund. People who stand out on the site due to the above-mentioned statements or behavior will be expelled from the event site immediately without reimbursement.
It is very important to us that every person at the festival feels welcome, comfortable, and safe. With this in mind, the project ‘’Which Way To Panama?’’ was launched in 2017. The concept strives for the continual awareness of all persons affected and the advancement of social empathy and pursues the goal of creating a safe space for everyone equally.
Ask the following people “Which way to Panama?”:
Bar staff, marshals (security staff), festival staff, police, paramedics, and all other crew members with a green-purple bracelet with the word PANAMA on it.
The festival crew will offer you their help without further questions or comments and bring you / the person in need of help into a protected environment.
Every festival guest is personally liable for any damage they may cause.
The obtainment and consumption of reportable objects and substances of any kind (drugs) on the event site is illegal.
Crowdsurfing is forbidden due to its extremely high probability of resulting in injury.
Laser pointers are forbidden on the entire event grounds.
The operation of unmanned aviation systems (drones and other remote-controlled flight models) is strictly prohibited on the entire event site. An exception to this prohibition is only possible for the security authorities themselves and for the promoter in the context of consultation with the responsible authorities.
