Alternative accommodation

As you may be aware, rooms at the Convention hotel (as well as memberships) have filled up uncommonly quickly. As such, availability is extremely limited. There is a waiting list for rooms in the Convention hotel, accessible via your Membership Information.

There are still camping plots available at the Convention hotel, if that is an option you are considering. We expect a fantastic festival atmosphere — tent decoration plans are already afoot by some members.
