BAR / CATERING

The bar is run by the association Les Sonorités de Montcul (LSDM) and offers: handcrafted beers, wine, sodas, fruit juices, mineral water bottles, coffees…

Plane’R Fest cups are sold for 1€. They are not returnable. Possibility to come with your own Ecocup, but you will regret it and will never sleep again ’til the end of your days…

Water sources are available to festival-goers over the entrance area and at the back of the bar.

For eating, a food stand is run by the association LSDM. Several food trucks are also available on the festival site. Vegan and vegetarians will also have a menu at their disposal.

Also, an ice cream stand will be run by the Parent Association (‘cuz our lil students like metal).

PAYMENTS ON THE FESTIVAL

This year, Plane’R Fest is going 100% digital!

For your purchases at the bar, foodtrucks and merchandising stands of the Plane’R Fest only, payment will be done via a cashless card.

Independent and band foodtrucks and merchandising stands will accept their own payment methods and will not use the Plane’R Fest cashless card.

Benefits: simpler reloading at the counter, faster orders, and as a bonus, you won’t scatter your half tokens again and will be sure to order your beer (phew!).

All info on cashless available here.

Important: in order to get your money back or in case of loss / theft, a code will be printed on your first ticket. You should therefore keep this first ticket as carefully as your pint if you wish to be reimbursed. Remember to take a photo of it if you are the kind of person who loses a piece of paper during a hug in a wall of death.

Attention! There is a cashpoint in the village of Colombier-Saugnieu, 2km from the festival (a vehicule is recommanded for lazy ones 😜).

MERCHANDISING

On the side of the stage, you will find the merchandising stands of each band, as well as a specialised stand where you can find clothing vendors, record shops, silkscreen printers, as well as ecological or environmental associations.

At the heart of the merch’ area there will also be a stand dedicated to Plane’R Fest products, with T-shirts and other derived products in the colors of the fest’. T-shirts come off, so be prepared and don’t wait ’til the end of the festival to come and see us!

FLYERS / POSTERS

Nature is our friend. In order to keep it safe and to avoid garbage scattering, flyers distribution is forbidden near and inside the site.

You can hang posters on the barriers and supports surrounding the festival and the camping to promote your events.

F.A.Q.

Earplugs will be available for free upon request at the festival reception.

I lost my ticket. How do we do?

If you lose your ticket, please go to the ticket office on site when arriving to the festival. We’ll take care of everything!

Lost and found

For any lost item request, please contact us at contact@planerfest.com.

Can I go out and re-enter the festival as I see fit?

No, any exit will be final, except for those who have access to the camping thanks to their wristband, which will have to be picked up at the ticket office at the entrance.

Can we take photos and videos?

Camcorders, reflex or bridge cameras, as well as any video capture with sound are forbidden, unless expressly accredited. Only “compact” type cameras are authorized.

As the conditions of the artistic reception are likely to change at the last moment, particularly on this point, the refusal to take photos by one of the bands will lead to a complete ban on this type of equipment for the day.

Accreditation request: any request for accreditation from the professional media must be made by e-mail to the following address: contact@planerfest.com.

Also, every year, we make a video to remember these moments. The fact that you can be filmed is stipulated in the general terms and conditions of sale. Nevertheless, if you do not wish to appear in close-up on a picture for personal reasons (runny mascara, messy beard or hair, perspiration traces, dirty shirt or shoes, acne pimples…or worse! Empty beer glass!), don’t hesitate to let the cameramen know directly! They will know how to make you look good!
