Q: Whats the difference of the 4 days gathering and the 2 days festival tickets ?

With the 4 day tickets you take also automatically at the raffle of the LEAF handpan part (the winner gets the handpan – not the right to buy them, by the way)
Q: Can i bring my family ? my kids ? my dog ?
A: The GRIASDI 2017 is a famly-friendy event. Kids are most welcome and their entry is free till the age of 14. Also free entry for people older than 70. All ages groups are most welcome ! About bringing pets: how i could tell if it is good or not to bring your dog/pet ? we want to see happy faces at the GRIASDI – so if your pet will be happy at an event like this, and can handle many people, why not. But please think about, that mostly events like that means stress for pets!

A: We will try to even offer a “camping setup” (something like dormetory in a Tipi) for those who come without a tent – but no guarantee for this. All adresses and contact about renting rooms near the festival, you can find on the GRIASDI 2017 Location Page.
