Due to the "Registrierkassenpflicht" we had to look for a legally compliant solution for all Nova Rock festivalgoers as well. This is why there is no cash accepted at Nova Rock but a cashless system. You can top-up your account via a chip on your wristband. Attention: You can refund your credit only online! A cash-out on site is not possible anymore. 

First Aid is available at the camping ground, the caravan site, the main area and at the BLUE and RED STAGE.

The Red Cross will be on site every day with over 100 paramedics and emergency doctors from all over Austria. Our help desks as well as the operations management and rescue vehicles are staffed 24 hours a day, with two additional Red Cross stations at the BLUE and RED STAGE during the stage times.


  • sun protection - a cap protects you from a sunstroke -  sunscreen from a painful sunburn. 
  • rain protection - because the weather can change quickly
  • warm clothes - it can get cold at night 
  • sturdy shoes - the ground consists of grass and is not even, every year there are a lot of ankle injuries, so choose your shoes accordingly.


  • Drink enough non-alcoholic drinks - two to three liters of water a day are recommended (we have enough free drinking-water-stations) 
  • Take some breaks - a festival is exhausting, do not strain yourself
  • Ear protection: protect your ears while standing in front of the stages or other  loudspeakers to prevent hearing loss. Ear protection can be found free of charge throughout the festival area. 
  • Don’t forget your prescribed medication and painkillers.
  • A small first-aid kit with band-aids, tweezers and the like is essential to any camping equipment in order to treat minor injuries immediately. 
  • Please note that contraceptives as well as morning-after pills will not be distributed by the Red Cross.

In case our medical staff prescribes medication, it is possible to place an order. Our MED-Shuttle is operating daily and will provide you with the necessary medication in a timely manner. Please note that there’s a prescription and service fee attached.

Medicines brought with you which need to be kept refrigerated can be handed in at the Red Cross station at the camping site where they’ll be stored safely in a medicine fridge. In case you need assistance with anything, please don’t hesitate to contact the Red Cross, they are there for you and will help you in any way they can.

The organizer/promoter cannot be held liable for any damage, injury or theft at the festival area (parking lot, camping and caravan area, core area, etc.)

As with any open air event, we can not influence the weather. If it comes to severe weather warnings and an evacuation of the site, we ask you to follow these steps:

  • Keep calm: Often, thunderstorms announce themselves some time in advance, so that there is enough time to get to safety in peace. However, if a storm suddenly occurs, it is also important to stay calm, to use escape routes and to follow the instructions of the security staff.
  • Avoid platforms, stages and fences: On sprawling and flat surfaces, the platforms, barrier fences and other elevated (metallic) structures are more likely to be struck by lightning due to their height. Therefore, it is advisable to avoid these places during thunderstorms - in particular, because lightning can cause damage not only at the point of impact, but also in their environment. This is especially true for trees that are falsely frequented by visitors as shelter.
  • Look for protection in the car: Who can, should leave the festival grounds during a thunderstorm and seek shelter in a closed car or caravan. The reason: The vehicles form a Faraday cage, which dissipates the lightning in the event of an impact into the earth and thus protects the occupants. Offers free seats to other festival guests and signals free seats by switching on the hazard warning lights.
  • Squat down: Those who can not make it to the car in time and have to wait for the thunderstorm on an open area should squat down and make themselves small, place their feet next to each other and embrace the body with their arms. Through this position, the attack surface for lightning is as low as possible.

Should you be confronted with unacceptable, intolerant behavior on the festival grounds, you can immediately report this to a team of specially trained security personnel. This team is specially marked, and can also be contacted immediately by all other security and catering staff.


You feel threatened, harassed or simply uncomfortable? You can also order an Angel Shot directly at the bar, our trained gastropub staff will help you immediately or notify further help in case of emergency.

You can also reach help at any time via the emergency hotline: +43 664 11 20 543

At open air events, unexpected measures may be taken due to weather conditions (interruption of performances, evacuation of core area, evacuation of tents, etc.). These measures will be announced by loudspeaker announcements and by the security personnel, if necessary also online. In this case (also), the instructions of the security personnel must be followed without resistance!
