Organisers managed to attract some big names, including the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Pearl Jam. Metallica had been scheduled, but it is uncertain if the band will play after a case of corona. The festival boasts four different stages for a total of some 100 performances.
Festival-goers staying multiple days brought their tent to spend the night. They will have to cough up some money: a four-day ticket set them back 266 euros, a pint of lager costs 3.5 euros and chips 7 euros. Most of them don't mind: they are delighted to be back at the festival after 3 years, and had the opportunity to save some extra money.
Organisers introduced some novelties: they arranged two night trains to reduce CO2 emissions, encouraged festival-goers to come by bike or take public transport, and made efforts to reduce the waste. They also focused on saving energy: one stage (The Slope) will mainly work on green energy which is being generated locally. Festival-goers also make a contribution each time they go to the toilet: the toilet waste will be used to create green energy.
