Medical Help & Emergencies

For your peace of mind, we have ensured that first aid doctors/medics will be patrolling the site at all times. Please contact your nearest security guard if help is required.

Fire Safety

Fire hazards are no small deal during the summer months and we wouldn't want to burn the lovely forest down, so please be aware that lighting fire is strictly forbidden on the Festival premises!

Cleanliness & Recycling

Following the recent devastating environmental disaster on our island with the destruction of a significant area of the island’s precious forest due to a forest fire, we kindly ask you to pay the utmost respect to the nature around you at the Festival. Please leave no traces behind, keep the site clean, and separate your rubbish as the ABR team have made special arrangements for recycling after the Festival.

Litter & Designated Bins

Labelled bins will be available on site. Please throw all litter in the bin, and not behind the trees, in the forest or anywhere else! Bins will be located all around the Festival grounds, with distinct signs for rubbish separation. We also kindly ask you not to throw your cigarettes on the ground.

Drinking Without Waste

In an attempt to eliminate waste, reusable collectible branded cups (40cl) will be available at the Festival for 1 euro.

Camping & Accommodation

Enjoy the glories of the great outdoors and make the most of the two-day experience by pitching up a tent or caravan under the cool shade of leafy eucalyptus and pine trees on the Festival campsite.

This year, the camping area has been upgraded and is more than double in size, with more showers and toilets to make the experience as pleasant as possible. What’s more, the camping area has been divided into different zones to best suit your needs, with an allocated ‘silent zone’ for those who just want to sleep and relax. There is also a limited capacity for caravans to set up base and accessible reserved space for disabled campers.

For your convenience, there are designated areas to pump up your mattress and a charging station – but please bring your own chargers/pumps!

Other Accommodation

Prefer the comfort of your own room? Then there’s a great place to stay just a three minute drive from the Festival site to cater to your needs called Cosmopolis Multi Venue.

With small houses for rent, you can team up with friends and ensure you’ve got somewhere close by to get some rest. Visit their website or Facebook page to find out more.

For your convenience, there is an allocated Campers Drop-Off point near the Festival Entrance where you can drop-off your friends and camping gear before proceeding to the parking area. Please do not leave any of your belongings unattended – the Festival is not responsible for any losses, theft or damages.

Getting There

Kornos Forest Area, Larnaca, Cyprus

Parking

There will be heaps of space to park your car in a designated parking area, but the parking has now moved to a location that’s a three minutes drive away, with a far greater capacity than previous years. A helpful team will be on hand to direct all visitors to the location, where you can park and then catch a FREE shuttle bus to the Festival entrance. So when parking your car, keep your eyes peeled for the clearly ‘labelled’ bus stop to board the Festival shuttle bus.

Shuttle Bus

The ABR Festival team will be operating a dedicated shuttle bus service between the parking areas and the Festival entrance to make it as easy and hassle free as possible for you to park and then get to and from the event. There will be a frequent service to ensure you don’t have to wait long and that your journey is quick and comfortable. Bus stops will be clearly marked at both the parking area and Festival entrance/exit.

Production

The Festival is organized by the non-profit organization “ABR - Alternative Brains Rule”. Its team is composed of young people from different professional fields, that are involved in the arts, and have set out to develop the Cypriot creative alternative scene. By encouraging collaborations between different fields they aim to explore the potential of home grown talent. By providing a platform for these artists to produce and present their work, they allow for them to promote their art and themselves in Cyprus and the rest of the world.

They have managed to put Cyprus on the creative map of Europe, by developing an internationally recognized, alternative, creative scene. Bringing artists from Cyprus and abroad together to collaborate on projects, will allow them to display their creative abilities as well as the intricacies of modern Cypriot culture through their work.
