HORS-SOL Festival is intended as a field of expression and festive experimentation. A collective and personal summer break, where freedom, open-mindedness and respect for others are essential pillars. As a collective, we do everything we can to ensure that the setting for this intimate and festive weekend is as pleasant as possible and that all the actors of this joyful getaway, can have a great experience. It is therefore important that you take note of these practical elements and useful reminders, in order to make this adventure the most beautiful we can.
The festival is thought of as a bubble of disconnection.
To make this experience stronger, only 3-day passes are available - so we recommend arriving on Thursday and departing on Sunday.
Our musical program is built like a common thread from the first to the last set, spreading over three stages with their own and complementary aesthetics.
The festival is limited to 450 festival-goers.
The festival takes place from Thursday July 7 at 4 p.m. to Sunday July 10 at 4 p.m. on a private site, located near the little village of Lanuéjols, in the Gard.
Access to the festival will no longer be possible after 11 p.m. on Friday.
The festival is strictly private. Only members of our association and holders of a presale are allowed to participate.
Anyone who has bought a ticket that is not in their name, will be able to enter the festival, but will have to pay the amount of membership to our association (5€), in their own name.
No tickets sold on site.

RESPECT & KINDNESS
Respect each other's space, consent and body and be considerate of others.
Take responsibility for yourself, your actions, and your words. The benevolence and vigilance of everyone are the keys to a peaceful and respectful community life during the 3 and a half days of festivities.
If you observe dangerous or discriminatory behavior, whether sexist, racist, homophobic or anything that constitutes any other form of harassment, report it immediately to the team festival.
Our festival taks place in a preserved natural area. To be respectful with it is essential and necessary.
Our team of volunteers will ensure the cleanliness of the site, toilets and showers. However, we are counting on you not to throw your cigarette butts and waste on the ground, and to pick up any that you may come across on your way.
These are small gestures which, added together, make the experience much more pleasant for all of us, organizers, volunteers and participants.
SECURITY AND PREVENTION
Throughout the event, watch over each other as if we were a big family. Adopt responsible and reasonable behavior in the way you party, and leave excess aside. This is above all about your health and safety, but also about our personal responsibility as organizers. Any dangerous behavior, whether individual or towards others, must be immediately reported to volunteers or staff. These behaviors can lead to an immediate exclusion of the event.
Our event is intended to be like a positive bubble of disconnection on a human scale. We therefore encourage you to take full advantage of this opportunity to leave your phone and social networks aside and to use them only when absolutely necessary.
Photos are not prohibited, but we invite you to respect the privacy of those who do not wish to be photographed.
Also, we advocate a philosophy of the party where the dance floor is dedicated to the party, and not to photography and sharing on social networks.
Party experience, letting go and freedom of the body will only be stronger.
Campfires and glass are strictly prohibited on the campsite. For your comfort, the campsite is located on a shaded plot.
It is a space of rest where respecting the tranquility and sleep of others is imperative.
Portable speakers on the campsite are prohibited at any time of the day: everyone is free to choose their hours of rest, the campsite is above all, a place of tranquility.
RENTALS (bungalows, chalets, yurts)
Rentals are strictly nominative; the sharing and use of these with people who have not booked is not authorized. The people occupying the rentals must bring their sheets / duvet.
As with camping, rental accommodation must be respected both in terms of cleanliness and noise pollution.
Our festival is based on a fragile economy, given the intimate gauge of it. Bringing your own alcohol into the festival grounds (stages, catering area, chill, swimming pool) is prohibited. A tolerance is however granted for the camping area. However, we are counting on your commitment to ensure that this remains on the sidelines.
Marine and Anouck will take care of your taste buds offering you meals based on local and quality products, with a vegetarian option.
The catering stands will be open continuously from midday to late evening. A smoothie stand will also be offered. To regain strength after a great night of celebration, a breakfast formula will also be offered to you at the central bar from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m.
Several drinking water taps will be available at the water points, distributed on the festival site and on the campsite.
Water is a precious resource, please use it wisely only when it's necessary.
Glitter and other make-up containing plastic micro-particles are harmful for the environment and are also very difficult to clean. Please avoid them, or choose only biodegradable glitter!
Toilet cabins will be installed near the campsite, in addition to the toilets already on site.
In order to keep them clean during the entire festival, be sure to leave the place as clean as you could find it, and think of the volunteers who will be in charge of their cleanliness.
The experience at the little corner will thus become much more pleasant for all of you :)
A shower block will be accessible for people installed on the campsite.
When using them, remember not to let the water run too long, so the wait is not too long for others and you avoid waste.
Prefer short showers to wash yourself, and take advantage of the swimming pool to cool off.
The pool will be open from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.
For security reasons, attendance will be regulated and limited by our team.
Please stay calm around the water and avoid jumping that could cause a fall or injury.
Temperatures can be high on the Causse Noir plateau - from 25 to 35 degrees in July. Remember to protect your skin with eco-friendly sunscreen, cover your head if necessary, and remember to hydrate yourself well throughout the event.
On the other hand, during the night, temperatures can drop significantly due to the altitude (900m) of the place. Remember to take something to cover yourself too, the nights can be very cold!
