Be prepared: The basics
The venue: What is there and what isn’t
WHERE: The event will be held just outside of Saint Cergue in Swiss Romande. The closest city to fly into is in Geneva. The site can be accessed by both car and train from Geneva, though there is about a 15 minute walk from the closest train stop. Closer to the event, carpools and pickups could be organised via our Discord channel.

WHAT: The space consists of two buildings (designated “the Castle” and “the School” and a field for camping. Each building has about 40 available beds in it, divided into dorms of various sizes (some only 3 beds, some more). We’ll be posting bed assignments soon so if you wanted, e.g., to plan to be in the same dorm with a group of friends that is possible. The central place is the Castle, where we intend to put the dance floor/loud zone. The School is located 100 m from the Castle and may be quieter. The campsite is located 100 m away, uphill from the Castle and will also be a quiet area. In between and around are some meadows with grazing cows (🇨🇭 Welcome to Switzerland 🐮) and forest beyond that. The whole site is relatively hilly with few flat areas.
FOOD and DRINK: Food is not included in the ticket price. However a group of burners (volunteers still needed -> check out the shift plan!) have decided to prepare a meal for Saturday evening. There are two ‘professional’ kitchens reserved for similar projects aiming to gift food to the community. Any such project will be more than welcome as it reduces the need for participants to prepare food for themselves. For the rest, we will create an outside kitchen to facilitate food preparation but we encourage you to be as self-sufficient as possible and keep things simple (camping style). The site has running water and there will be a bar 🙂
TOILETS and SHOWERS: Both buildings are equipped with toilets and showers. Note that the campground is a 100 m from the nearest building with bathroom facilities (more or less where the picture to the right was taken from).
