The airfield Obermehler near the city of Schlotheim is for the second time home of the Party.San festival, edition 26. Because of using an airfield area some special codes of behaviour are necessary. Details later. For the first time ever we present the so-called underground stage with five bands a day. Altogether 50 bands play the Party.San in 2022. Naturally we hope being spared from damages, severe wheater and band refusals. Party.San takes place from 11.08.2022 to 13.08.2022.


Again we have two stages. Bands play the main stage from thursday on. Stage two is the tent stage, where we present for the first time a second official stage (underground stage) for five bands a day. The tent stage is also in use for our aftershow parties supported by our two thuringian radio stations "The New Noise" and "Hellborn Metal Radio". The morning pint has proved very popular last year, so in 2022 a band is playing again on this occasion.

Toilets / Showers / Supply

There will be enough free-to-use portable toilets in place. These are located next to the light towers on the runway and can be easily seen. The toilets will be cleaned daily several times. As last year we provide two sanitary bases with flush toilets and showers. The bases are located on the camping area (south) next to the runway and can be easily seen, too. The so-called flatrate ticket for using both toilets and showers is available again. Get it at service points or box office.

Of course there will be facilities for hand washing and water intake on the camping ground next to service points.

Located between main and backstage entrance you can find a beer garden in addition to the wellknown breakfast tent, opened from wednesday evening. The party tent opens from thursday August 8, daily between 7pm and 3am. Of course we stage our notorious daily after show parties.


Get your tickets in advance! We do not have endless capacities! At the moment we can not make a statement about availabilities of weekend or day tickets at the box office. At the end of June we are able to say something about it.

Catering / Prices

Food and drink supply is guaranteed from wednesday 7pm to sunday morning 11am.

We pay strict attention to high quality catering. Our catering partners have order to provide affordable food and drinks. Our tried and trusted Party.San crew takes care for your drinks once again.

Children and juveniles

Children and juveniles (up to 16) without legal guardian are not admitted to concert or dance events by german law (JuSchG. §9). Juveniles (16 and older) without legal guardian have access to events mentioned above until midnight.

Even so there is one exception. Download this document >>> here <<< and name a legal guardian. Complete the  form and get a sign from your parents or legal guardian. Have this document with you all the time and show it to security if requested.

Your are allowed to stay at the festival area as long as follows: up to 16 until midnight / 16 and older until your legal guardian vetoes.

Service of alcohol to children and juveniles is subject to german law (JuSchG. § 9).

Children and juveniles under 14 accompanied by a legal guardian are admitted free of charge. I.e. you have to pay if you are 14 and older.

(not) to bring along

Weapons, pyrotechnic articles and glassware is strictly prohibited. As every year we have controls at the festival entrance. Considerable violation of the rules may lead to a sending off. About glassware: all forbidden items made of glass (even nutella or gherkin jars) found at the control are withdrawn and destroyed without replacement!

Please leave this shit at home!


Gas cylinders are not prohibited at Party.San Metal Open Air. In individual cases the security staff can seize the gas cylinders which are brought by you. Of course you will get them back after the festival. 

This applies in particular if:

- the filling quanitity of the gas cylinder exceeds 5kg. Only one gas cylinder per car is allowed.

- the gas cylinder has no valid TÜV-certificate (TÜV = German Association for Technical Inspection) (stamp or sign on the gas cylinder)

- you cannot show a valid TÜV-certificate for the pressure regulator and/or the connecting hose that will be used (stamp or imprint)

- the gas installation has no functional reliable safety pilot

- the gas installation operating in a caravan/motorhome has no valid gas test (TÜV badge)

Dealing with food/non-food articles without license is strictly forbidden on the festival grounds for anyone but registered traders.

Some words about the unwelcomed issue of political acting and showcasing of political excesses. The shirt ban for national socialist and/or NSBM motives remains in force! The ban is valid for the entire festival and camping area. In fact we see a remarkable improvement over the last years but we have to make clear that we don´t tolerate political shit or the slightest provocation either! This is something for all sides of political display. Raw offenses always involve a report to the police.
