...so today we are including you in our emotional world. We are still fully in the trance state of the experience! What a roller coaster ride it has been for us in the last almost 3 years and especially in the last 10 months ... And what a snotty festival the sweetest and best crew ever, bands and external participants delivered for you, the best audience! After three festival postponements, we managed a comeback that couldn't have been better under the current conditions! BTF family feeling and punk rock wellness, as if nothing had ever happened in between. What was scary, however, in the immediate run-up to the festival was the large number of ticket sales on the Internet, some of which were from regular guests for years.
About 10 months ago, for a variety of reasons, important and long-serving crew members gradually left the organizational team. Their area of activity in terms of preparatory work had to be replaced as quickly as possible. This step was not easy, but we succeeded in that others in the team were able to take more time to prepare our friendly family festival and on the other hand a lot of new people were added who were a huge help during the event as well as with set-up and dismantling were. Some parts of our regular crew have also surpassed themselves in many areas and have sometimes taken on 2 jobs at the same time on site. Insanity! The thanks for that cannot be put into words! ... And don't forget that the temperatures are usually above 35 degrees Celsius! Nevertheless, the human bloodletting was so great that the dismantling and cleaning work on site took more than a week for the first time and only now can the accounting for the festival begin. For this reason, the lost and found items were posted online or sent back to you later than usual. Other concerns could therefore only be answered later, sorry for that!
Not everything went as smoothly as we had imagined. Afterwards, the insufficient number of mobile toilets in the BTF-FB group was addressed and our "piss corner" was criticized... Short statement on this: We had ordered more mobile toilets than in 2019 and this with far fewer visitors* to be expected. In the meantime, the festival was about to be canceled because there were no mobile toilets available in the larger area or various providers had withdrawn their offer because they simply could not keep it and look after it. After the event-free period with the numerous concert and festival postponements, all the organizers suddenly got started at the same time, whether music festivals of all kinds, fairs, town and village festivals, etc., then the market is empty. Ultimately, we ordered even more Dixis than in 2019 at twice the price, without knowing what the audience would expect. The two toilet vans on the campsite and festival grounds were also available for a usage fee, and if there was an occasional drain accident, it was repaired promptly.
Unfortunately, during the night from Thursday to Friday, there were a number of thefts, all at the same time in the visitor campground, in the family camp and on the backstage campground. While people slept in their tents or cars, cash was primarily stolen from them. We assume external gangs that have meanwhile also selected smaller festivals for such criminal actions. For us, that means more protection in the coming year, but everything has to remain affordable. So today the advice for 2023 to secure valuables and primarily cash sufficiently.
Then we would already have arrived at the look into the future: The next Back To Future festival will, if Punk wants, from 20.07. until July 22, 2023. Put the date in your holiday calendar. We'll be in touch with the Early Bird ticket campaign and other topics in the coming weeks! Among them there will also be a visitor survey on the future organization of your favorite festival.
In gratitude, your BTF crew!
