Hai in den Mai
05.–08.05.2016 – Stemwede-Wehdem
Spring is finally here. Open air mode: On! The festival known for its unique hillside location is growing just as organically and beautifully as the surrounding woods.
After the open air put a lot of love and effort into its countless details, the next edition introduces a rather big novelty: The festival in the woods has a Florest floor now, a music area dedicated exclusively to the fast and trippy side of psychedelic dance music. So altogether there’s 4 floors now, vibrating with everything from classic Prog to Psy Prog, from Psytrance to Forest, from Hitech to Dark Prog, from Chill Out to Techno. One of these floors is located inside an actual building – quite a nice bonus in spring, when temperature might differ quite a bit between day and night.
Speaking of temperature: The Chill Out is hosted by the Cosmic Stairways Crew and has several bonfires to keep you warm while chilling out. There’s even warm showers at Waldfrieden. In terms of optics, you may look forward to a fiery art installation by Sir Henry Hot, the master of flame throwers.
Besides lots and lots of party you may also find spiritual inspiration in the Healing Area by the lake. In response to its growing popularity during the last editions the program has been extended.
What else to mention about Hai in den Mai? Keep in mind that you can jump on a free shuttle from and to the train stations Lemförde and Rahden, and that you can book a campsite with power supply.
