The Party.San Metal Open Air will take place for the 28. time at Obermehler airfield near Schlotheim in 2024. The airfield will be closed to air traffic during the event. The Party.San Metal Open Air will take place from Thursday 08.08.2024 to Saturday 10.08.2024.


The Party.San Metal Open Air offers its guests two stages. Both the main stage and the tent stage will be open from Thursday (up to and including Saturday). The tent stage will host the daily after-show party with DJs from radio stations.

Toilets / Showers / Supply

There will be sufficient free mobile and water toilets available. These are located on the campsite and in the festival infield area. The toilets will be cleaned several times a day during the festival to ensure maximum cleanliness for our guests. As last year, there will be two sanitary facilities with flush toilets and showers. These are also clearly visible and marked by flags on the camping areas. The flat-rate ticket for the use of the toilets and showers will also be available in 2024. You can purchase this ticket directly at the service points.

Water taps and hand washing facilities will of course be available on the camping site near the service points.

Between the festival entrance (gate entrance) and the backstage entrance there will be a beer garden in addition to the well-known breakfast tent, which will be open from Wednesday evening. The party tent will be open from Wednesday, 07.08.2024, 20:00 and offers our guests the obligatory welcome party as well as selected stands (food & drinks). From Thursday, 08.08.2024 to ###FESTIVALCAMPUNTIL###, the area will be opened and closed again according to the advertised opening times (current times will be announced in the handout, which we will hand out to each guest after arrival). The party tent will be used for the daily after-show party after Infields closes and will only close in the early hours of the morning (see handout for times).


Please get your tickets in advance! Our capacities could also run out. We cannot say at this stage whether weekend or day tickets will be available at the box office. We will only be able to make a firm statement on this at the beginning of July at the earliest.

Catering / Prices

Drinks and food will be available from Wednesday evening at 8:00 pm until Sunday morning at 11:00 am. We take great care to only accept suppliers whose products are of high quality. The supply partners are instructed to offer you food and drinks at a fair price. Water may be brought onto the infield in unopened Tetra-Paks or PET bottles with a maximum capacity of one liter (one bottle per person). Drinks for personal consumption are generally permitted on the campsite! Please remember that glass is prohibited on the entire festival site.

The Party.San Metal Open Air crew will again be responsible for serving drinks in the infield in 2024.

Hygiene instructions / pathogens / volume Party.San Metal Open Air

The visitor is aware that there is a particular volume at the concert, especially in front of the stage, and that there is a risk of possible damage to health, especially hearing damage. The organizer will ensure that visitors are not harmed by the sound level of the performances by providing suitable technical equipment, limiting the volume and selecting individual venues. Irrespective of this, however, it is strongly recommended to use suitable hearing protection, especially when standing near the loudspeakers, and to choose a place in front of the stage that is conducive to individual hearing habits.

The regular hygiene recommendations such as daily personal hygiene and regular hand washing apply.

From an official point of view, we have no warnings regarding acute infectious diseases. Should there be any changes, we will inform you via our social networks.

Otherwise, please use your common sense and take care of your fellow human beings.
