English Information for our international guests at the Freiburg Straight Ahead Festival

We want to welcome all our international guests at our first Straight Ahead Festival in Freiburg and provide some useful information for the weekend in English language:

Date and place:

The festival takes place at Freizeichen (ArTik e.V.), Haslacher Straße 25/ 43, 79115 Freiburg in Breisgau from Friday, Mai 3rd until Saturday, Mai 4th 2019. The doors will open at 5 o‘clock in the evening and the concerts will start at 6 o‘clock both days.
There will also be a political program as a part of the festival, which will start earlier (see below).

The very last chance for tickets:

The „Straight Ahead Festival. A 161 Event. Vol. I. 2019“ is completely sold out. Some of the tickets we sold to friends in Stuttgart, from where they organize a common bus ride to the festival. These tickets are the very last on the market. The price for the bus ride from and back to Stuttgart plus the festival ticket plus 50 l-free beer on board is 89.- €. Get more information on facebook or order your ticket directly via buszumfest@gmx.de!

Places to stay/ hostels/ camping:

Here you‘ll find some places to sleep in Freiburg:
- Hirzberg Camping
- Black Forest Hostel
- StayInn Freiburg
As the festival takes place at a weekend the public trams will run the whole night. So you‘ll have no problem to get to the festival, your hostel or whatever whenever you want.


We‘re proud to anounce, that we could manage to organize the Amara Food Truck for our festival. Amara is not only the place of birth of Abdullah Öcalan, it’s also the name of a Freiburg fast food restaurant, which maintains two branches in Freiburg and where you find not only the best Döner Kebap in town: the Amara is also known for a wide range of vegetarian and vegan dishes.
