Info pack – Summer Contrast

Buy ticket

⤁  Summer Contrast is not a festival which from you return as a shadow of yourself—we’d prefer you to go home as a better version of yourself. For years, we have been adapting our Rogalinko meadows to offer a range of both expected and unexpected attractions that will accompany you throughout the festival. Our tickets are aptly named “FULL EXPERIENCE.” Those who have already been here understand the rules and atmosphere of the Summer Contrast Festival. It’s not just about the atmospheric fog enveloping the festival after dark but also the ambiance created by the wonderful community, which feels like family over time. We are confident that everyone who comes for the first time will quickly feel as a part of our “community.” However, Summer Contrast is a large, multi-dimensional festival that brings together people from all over the world. We want to introduce you to some of the most important aspects of the festival through this INFO PACK.

The best options of transport are those widely available and eco-friendly. If you can leave your car behind, opt for a train or bus. Post in the discussion under the event or in the official SC group on Facebook to find out who else is traveling from your town and maybe you could join them. The festival adventure can start on the journey itself!

The festival starts on Monday, August 5, at 12:00 PM. From that moment, the camping area will be open for everyone. Summer Contrast lasts 7 days, and the festival area will close on Monday at 8:00 PM. For the comfort of others, we recommend arriving at the camping site between 10:00 AM and 5:00 PM. The camping area is accessible to everyone with a festival ticket, which allows entry with a tent. A Camper Pass, available for purchase on our website, is required to enter the camping area with a vehicle (car, camper, trailer). Those who don’t need to drive into the camping area, but arrive by car, can use a separate parking lot, accessible with a Parking Pass, situated 50 meters from the main festival gate. Parking Passes and Camper Passes can be purchased on-site, but please bear in mind, that the availability is limited. Please note that each Pass allows a single entry to the Camping and Parking area. If you leave, you will need to buy a new ticket to re-enter.

The festival offers an abundance of delights: 6 stages, over 150 international artists, workshops, lectures, discussion panels, stalls with handcrafts, music, singing, delicious food (both vegetarian and non-vegetarian), pristine nature—forest, meadow, beach, a cool river, a broad sense of freedom, and wonderful, open-minded people. That, in a few words, describes our festival. And don’t forget the fog. Picture a morning walk in the fog that cuts through the meadow—spectacular moments, and the night sky showering with shooting stars, which you’ll soon experience.

This year’s edition will feature inspiring meetings during workshops and lectures conducted by exceptional souls from around the world. Who wouldn’t dream of morning yoga on the Rogalinko meadow, weaving their own macrame, or listening to fairy-tale travel stories to the most beautiful places on our planet? We will soon provide a detailed description and conditions for participation. Some workshops might require registration. Remember the date and time of the workshops you want to attend to reserve your spot. Most workshops are free, but we have a few “gems” that will require a fee.

One of the stages, “Paradiso,” is a true festival gem—located on a beach next to the Rega River. There’s not much more to add—this is one of the most beloved and characteristic spots.

The term “meadow” often appears in our festival descriptions. The festival takes place on private land in a fantastic location—surrounded by a large clearing/meadow and forests with many mysterious spots and paths, offering magical experiences at every step. Nature invites us to use its beautiful garden during this extraordinary time. Caring for this place is our priority. We ask only that you love and respect it. Protect the nature and wildlife around. This is their everyday home. Leave behind beautiful memories and footprints; pack the rest, segregate, and thank the planet for its generosity.

⤁ 𝐏𝐀𝐘𝐌𝐄𝐍𝐓𝐒

This year, we will only accept VISA and Mastercard payments on the Summer Contrast grounds. Remember to bring your cards and not rely solely on phones (as they might run out of battery). Cash can be used at the market space stalls. Summer Contrast is keeping up with the times, so we provide a “work” Wi-Fi zone and a power bank charging station.

⤁ 𝐒𝐀𝐍𝐈𝐓𝐀𝐓𝐈𝐎𝐍

Showers — there will be a portable sanitary container with hot water on the camping site. Please check the map and keep it clean for others. Try to minimize water usage and use it briefly so everyone can shower in due time.

There will be designated recycling zones, trash bins, and containers on-site. Please recycle thoughtfully. As for the toilets, we use portable ones that will be cleaned daily for your comfort. Please use them respectfully.

⤁  𝐖𝐎𝐑𝐊 𝐒𝐓𝐀𝐓𝐈𝐎𝐍

Not everyone can abandon work duties completely to fully enjoy the fun. But we have a solution! For the first time, there will be a Work Station at Summer Contrast—a space with broadband internet and sockets. Sit under the oak tree, do what you need to do, and return as soon as possible to one of our stages! We know this area might be popular, so please remember that priority access should be given to those who need to work. The festival’s main idea is to disconnect from technology and “connect” with nature. Don’t forget this! Sometimes, turn off your phone, camera, or laptop. Be here and now and enjoy it to the fullest.

The festival is a 45-minute drive from the seaside town of Kołobrzeg and other nearby coastal cities. It’s a stone’s throw away from great fish, sandy beaches, and refreshing swims in the Baltic Sea. Around the festival area, there are three beautiful lakes: Nielep, Bystrzno, and Bukowiec—each offering fresh swims, beaches, and beautiful views on a walk. Plan your trip not only for the festival but also for the journey back.
