Make sure you take your shower very early in the morning, as the number of toilets and showers are limited. You might face long queues depending on what time you go.

Food & drink
How much should I expect to spend each day?
The prices are much lower in Western Europe and also lower than commercial events. Woodstock Festival Poland is basically an open area so people can bring their own food and beverages, including beer. Of course there are plenty of food stalls around as well, which offer lots of different typed of food like mini-pizzas, kebabs, sausages and potatoes.
There is a Lidl supermarket built especially for Woodstock, prices are the same as any other Lidl around Poland, so very cheap! A beer will cost about €1 for 500ml.

- Make sure you don't confuse "Kostrzyn nad Odra" with "Kostrzyn", another town in Poland in different region! Woodstock Festival Poland is held in "Kostrzyn nad Odra".
- Try to find a spot with lots of grass underneath your tent, the more grass you have the softer and better you will sleep.
- Be very careful where you set up your tent, the location is very important. Make sure you don´t set your tent up in a valley, because if it rains, your tent could easily end up underwater!
- If you´re camping, try to buy drinks at a supermarket and take them with you to your tent, drinking at your tent is part of the festival warm-up!
- Make some new friends! It´s always good to be friends with your tent neighbours, not only can you have a good time together, but they will look after your stuff and you can do the same for them!
- Enjoy yourself like there is no tomorrow!
