Attention: Visitors are not allowed to bring their own tents. 

The VIBEZ Openair is the first Openair in German-speaking Switzerland, where visitors are not allowed to bring their own tents. The aim is to take care of nature and avoid unnecessary damage and waste residues. The tents are ready on arrival!

Zeltheld.com sets up tents for all visitors and offers additionally camping tables, chairs and air mattresses. On Sunday, Camping Hostel visitors have plenty of time to pack their things in a relaxed manner and leave. The tent remains on site and is dismantled by Staff. 

An overview of the bookable tents can be found HEREAttention: Visitors are not allowed to bring their own tents. 

Tents can be booked HERE.

Since visitors are not allowed to bring their own tents, fair and transparent pricing is important. Visitors can choose between normal 2-person tents, 4-person tents and spacious 8-person tents. A tent must be booked for all three nights. A shorter rental period is not possible.

Deposit: 

The deposit amount will be paid back to the visitor in cash when the rental objects are handed over properly. If the deposit is forfeited due to damage or total loss, etc., the lessor shall retain the entire deposit amount to cover the damage costs. The lessor reserves the right to further allocate the costs for any replacement procurement or accident of use. In case of damage by third parties or theft, the Zeltheld team must be informed immediately on site. In this case the refund of the deposit can also be refused. However, Zeltheld is always anxious to settle such matters generously for the benefit of the customer.

There they will be received by the Zeltheld team at the service tent (pavilion with logo). Visitors can register with their name and booking number. After the registration, visitors will be accompanied to their tent and will receive an extra bracelet to be presented at the entrance of the Camping Hostel.

Among the visitors, there are always those, who do not shy away from the opportunity to make prey. Theft by cutting up tents or theft from bags and pockets is reported to the Openair staff again and again. Thieves shamelessly exploit a lack of attention and carelessness. The Police and Security cannot protect visitors always and everywhere. The best protection is one’s own! 

We ask visitors to behave attentively and to report suspicious persons (e.g. conspicuous behaviour). Security, Police and the staff at the Info Points help and support visitors.

BUY TICKETS

Why were the prices adjusted?

We are pleased to announce EMIRATES as our new presenting partner of the VIBEZ Openair, opening up exciting new perspectives for you! 

We donate a part of the contributions received from our partners to various charities. This new cooperation will also enable us to reduce the ticket price from CHF 120 to CHF 59 per 1 Day Pass (the 3 Day Pass now costs CHF 159.00 instead of CHF 289.00). 

Every Openair visitor who has purchased a ticket at the starting price can claim this discount.

 

I bought a ticket for CHF 120 / CHF 289 - what are my options?

1. Invite a friend to join you at the VIBEZ Openair: 

All you have to do is show your ticket and the receipt for CHF 120 at the information stand with the inscription "Ticket à 120" on it on the day of the Openair and you will receive a second entry. The same applies to the 3 Day Pass: you can come every 3 days with one (and the same) friend.

2. Convert the price difference into credit for food and drink:  

To compensate for the difference in ticket prices, you also have the option of receiving a voucher worth CHF 61 for drinks/food (for 3 days, value CHF 130.-). In order to receive this voucher, we ask you to present your ticket and receipt at the information stand (signposted at the entrance with "Billet à 120") on the day of the festival and you will receive your voucher.

 

I own a VIP ticket. What can I benefit from?

As a VIP you will of course also benefit from this partnership with Emirates. The VIP offer from VIBEZ is a premium offer that is not affected by the price change. We want to offer our VIP visitors an extremely high-quality open-air experience. Therefore, we are pursuing the approach of further enhancing the offer. Owners of VIP tickets can therefore expect additional and exclusive surprises.
