House Rules for Schönburn 2021
The most important “rules” are the 10 Principles of Burning Man + Consent, as well as the White Canvas principles, as well as the health precautions that are necessary due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
In addition we need to set some common house rules to ensure that the burn runs pleasantly for ALL participants as well as the organisers who take responsibility.
Please leave your furry friend at home for their own sake, and the sake of all of your fellow burners.
Leave No Trace
Remember that Leave No Trace is an important principle.
This does not just mean leaving the grounds sparkling clean when we depart, but requires an ongoing responsibility and vigilance from all participants to clean any MOOP they find.
No Smoking Inside
There is strictly no smoking indoors, but plenty of space outside in the yards to satisfy your needs. Some of us also find vaporizers in small enclosed spaces unpleasant, so please be considerate and take them outside.
No music shall be played in the camping grounds (day or night). No loud music outdoors after 22.
While we all love music, noise levels can be an issue at the camping grounds, which means that we need to be very much aware how loud we are in places where others wish to sleep. Furthermore, the Böllerhof has neighbors whose peace we must respect at night.
It’s not allowed to take photos or film people without consent. We consider it every individual’s right to control their own image. Schönburn is a safe zone, where participants feel safe to do what they like and be what they want to be without the fear of having their every action being posted online.
Always ask when you take a photo or film someone. Ask before you make that photo or video public. No commercial use.
The gate will open on Wednesday 8th September 12:00. Latest access to the event is Friday 12st September at 18:00. Gate will be closed and no entry will be possible after this time. Please plan your arrival accordingly.
Please bring your membership ticket and an ID. Each membership is tied to a name and we will check IDs upon arrival. You cannot entry with a membership that is not issued on your name!
Remember that the gate will be run by participants, and anyone is welcome to help! Should you see people arriving and the gate empty, step in and check your future friends in! If you have any problems, don’t panic. There will be a walkie talkie to call the site lead to the rescue.
Placing your tent
Only place your tent on open lawn, do not place your tent under a tree as branches can fall off the tree and kill you.
Outside, you must place your tent in the designated tenting areas.
