In the Hofer Snack & Chill Area you have the possibility to use the grills there for free. Open fire is forbidden outside the Snack & Chill area and therefore we ask you not to bring your own barbecue.
The setting up of party tents is not recommended for reasons of security, space and environment. If you have one, please note that this is used by several festival visitors and covers at least 50% of the sleeping tent.
Children & Teenagers
The last version of the Lower Austrian Protection for Minors applies. Security is required to ensure compliance with this law. Children from 10 years old pay the full price.

Please keep the ticket ready when accessing the entrance to avoid delays. The wristbands are not transferable.
The freQuency festival is cashless. That's why there is no cash machine available at the festival site. The next cash machine is situated near the Merkur supermarket (about 500 meter walking distance)

There is also a natural elevation in the area of the Green Stage which gives you a nice view.
There are sanitary stations at the campsite, at the caravan site and at the core site.
There are water-rinsed toilets at the large sanitary station at the campsite as well as at the caravan site and in the core area. In addition, larger mobile toilet stations are situated at several locations.

There are drinking water facilities in the sanitary areas on the camping and caravan site, in the core area near the Space Stage as well as the toilet stations located there.
We strongly advise you to not buy tickets from private sellers on the street. Unfortunately, there have often been problems with fake tickets, with which the entrance to the festival and camping grounds will be refused.

What needs to be done at the festival?
You can top up the chip on site at every Top-Up- and Self Service Stations by:
By handing over cash, putting in your PIN or signing the credit card receipt the top-up is considered confirmed. Only your bank according to their TOS can help you with abuse of your bank card/credit card by third parties.
It makes sense to top up a suitable amount right away.
Should there be verifiable monetary advantages for the guest through handling errors, the guest is not authorized to spend this money. We reserve the right to correct these errors as soon as they become obvious.
Top-Up Stations are specially branded containers with assistance where
In addition, there are three main Top-Up Stations which are bigger and better staffed (one near the wristband issue point, one at the Space Stage, one at entrance to the Green Stage and one at the camping site near the food court), where you can also get your credit back in cash.
Here you see the Top-Up Stations at a glance: area map coming soon.
The main Top-Up Stations (area map coming soon) are staffed around the clock, we will spread our crew here according to the demand. We are offering this service at night, but we ask for your understanding that there will only be a small team on duty and longer waiting times are possible.
Generally there is no minimum top-up. But it makes sense to get a suitable amount of credit for the whole festival right away:
You can get your remaining credit transferred back to you online comfortably after the festival (only possible with personalization of the chip).
At the festival site
You can get your remaining credit back in cash directly on site at one of the main Top-Up Stations (one near the wristband issue point, one at the entrance to the venue and one at the camping site near the food court). For logistical reasons, unfortunately we have to round down the pay-out to 50 Cent increments e.g. your remaining credit of 7,80€ gets rounded down to 7,50€ in cash and you lose your claim to the difference.
We recommend to make use of the online retransfer in any case. We ask for your understanding that there might be longer waiting times during peak times like main departure time. Should it be impossible due to acts beyond our control to pay out the credit in cash on site, the online retransfer can still be arranged comfortably from home.
Notice that the cash pay-out is only possible until August 20th, 12:00 noon. After that the remaining credit can only be refunded via the previously described online transfer option during the stated time period.
A regular financial transaction with cash always takes more time e.g. for handing over the change. The chip reduces the duration to a minimum. There is no necessity to carry cash all the time and the system increases security and transparency of the payment transactions and leaves the guest free of care. For further benefits see the next point.
You can also personalize your chip, in order to do that you have to state the following info on www.frequency.at/cashless:
*The option to personalize your chip is possible from the first day of the festival on.
Thereby you can
State-of-the-art technology and encryption methods are being used to protect the data and credit balance of the guests. Reliability and data security are the main priority.
Every guest is obligated to handle their chip properly and carefully. We will not be liable for the lack of care of a chip (e.g. damage/loss/theft) or incorrect use by the guest.
If you personalized your card correctly our cashless crew can lock your card. Until the chip is completely locked there might be a slight delay due to updates. Therefore we can't guarantee to lock your card in real time.
If can not be hold liable for any misuse of your chip. So please always keep an eye on your chip and do not lose it!
Due to a special infrastructure a system failure is impossible in practice.
All transactions processed in EUROS.
If you have lost your Card you can alert our Card-crew - as long as your Card has been personalized already and the data is successfully stored in our system your Card can be disabled. It can take a few minutes until your Card is disabled completely. Due to delayed system updates we can't guarantee a card cancellation for 100 %.
Unfortunately we cannot be held liable for the misuse of your Card in the time until it can be completely disabled by us. Tip: Take good care of your Cards!
At the VOLUME signing tent powered by Red Bull MOBILE everyone can say hello to the stars, to make a photos and to get a signature.
