As of 2020 there are no longer free entries from the attendance database for the Wolfsburg car draw. Should a supporter wish to enter the giveaway car draw they need to purchase the Wolfsburg chrome tickets. Revenue from the Wolfsburg project build supports several charity homes annually.
Please note that it is policy for the various Warmbaths accommodation units to be occupied according to their quota eg; 4 sleepers require 4 persons, and 6 sleepers require 6 persons for bookings. A supporter may therefore not book a 4 sleeper unit for only 1, 2 or 3 people at a discount. Full capacity for chalets, log cabins or hotel rooms must be purchased even if all the beds in a unit are not occupied. Guests may also not sleep more people than the maximum capacity stipulated for each ticket type.
All chalet accommodation is self-catering and there are general stores, food vendors and/or restaurants on site for catering and common supplies. Food vendors at the show area include halaal.

*PLEASE NOTE THAT NO BRANDED SETUPS OR EQUIPMENT is allowed for shade, leisure or any other reason by spectators or contestants. Only plain camp chairs, umbrellas, gazebos etc are permitted. Should you wish to market or promote a commercial brand then please contact the organizers in advance regarding exhibitor stands, vending stalls or sponsor space. Displaying business visuals on camping or picnic setups without prior approval is addressed as ambush marketing and will not be tolerated. Kindly note there is a R.O.A.R venue and event policy.

Polo Day-visitors at the Campfest event have a separate parking area. Only pre-registered Show & Shine day-visiting vehicles, and AutoPavilion ticket holders will be permitted into the designated main show areas. All other Day-visit supporters have a specified parking area and will reach the main show section by foot.
There is a “cash payment at the gate” option for Polo day-visitors in 2021. We do however encourage supporters to secure tickets beforehand to avoid disappointment. The volume of attendance is unpredictable at Warmbaths, due to its significant popular appeal, and once the venue reaches maximum capacity only pre-sold ticket holders will be permitted entry.
There are ATM machines on site for visitor perusal.

The venue is fully licensed to sell alcoholic refreshments. Day visitors are not permitted to bring alcoholic drinks. Overnight visitors are allowed to bring their own alcoholic beverage and food but please note the following conditions:

All entry tickets will be scanned at our gate box office. Please ensure that you do not buy tickets off the street and we strongly advise against the purchase of second hand tickets via social media. These “private sale” tickets are often clone copied and illegitimate, and will not pass the entrance scanners.

Questions & Answers:

Q: I want to attend but I'm worried about Covid still being around next year. Will it be safe?
A: Substantial consultation has been done with industry stakeholders and we anticipate that the second quarter of next year will be safe to host events. However it is fair to state that there is no guarantee that this will be the case. The events, tourism and hospitality industry is preparing all safety and hygiene protocols for future operations but the end of lockdown and restrictions is not an absolute certainty. For this reason the event and Forever group offers commitment for fail-safe dates in September 2021. Should prolonged Covid lockdown prevent an April event then all bookings will be shifted to 5 months later at no additional cost to supporters. It is important to note that pandemics are not insurable for events and venues, so any postponement in April or cancellation beyond September 2021 is not refundable for ticket buyers. We therefore advise public to only support the future event industry if they fully understand the risks.

Q: I want to buy tickets but the website says "booked out". What does that mean?
A: Booked out ticket listings means that supporters have reserved bookings for all the available space for that type of ticket. Bookings happen extremely fast on ticket launch day due to public demand. However each supporter is given 24 hours to conclude payment for a booking. If payment is not submitted then tickets will be returned to the system and made available for other supporters to buy. This cycle will continue until all "booked out" tickets have been paid and the status will change to "sold out". Keep visiting the site daily (and refresh your screen) for unpaid tickets that may become available again.
Once "sold out" is indicated it means that all ticket bookings have been paid and no further space will be available for that ticket listing.

Q: How does the Wolfsburg give-away car work?
A: Any visitor over the age of 18 who has a driver’s license can win the car. Judges will draw Wolfsburg chrome wristband numbers on the main stage. If your wristband number is announced you could take ownership of the car keys. Please note terms of the competition at the official blog: https://wolfsburgproject.wordpress.com/2013/01/10/project-wolfsburg-terms-and-conditions/

Q: If I stay at Jetta Pendleberry chalets and I have friends at Tiguan chalets can we hang out together?
A: Tiguan ticket holders do not have access to Jetta units.
Likewise Jetta ticket holders do not have access to Tiguan units.
The separate types of accommodation ticket holders need to meet friends in the main show area or swimming pool and picnic areas.
Please also note that due to capacity limits camping guests cannot occupy or sleep in chalets, (and vice versa) chalet guests cannot sleep at the camp sites.

Q: If I stay at Pendleberry when do I enter the main Warmbaths area?
A: Jetta ticket holders at Pendleberry Grove have access to the main resort facilities on both Saturday and Sunday. Friday is not an official motorshow day and is therefore not included. Should Jetta ticket holders wish to use Warmbaths amenities a day early then they are welcome to visit Warmbaths as a day-visitor. Normal day-visiting rates and rules would apply.

Q: Check-ins for GTI camping is from 13h00 on Friday 9th April. What time does check-ins end? Can I come in at 2am in the morning?
A: The main gates close at 22h30 and re-open at 07h00 in the morning. Please plan your arrival before closing time or after 7am. Any other arrival time requires the ticket holder to wait for the venue gates to open. Kindly ensure that you have arranged all your needed supplies/ food and have them brought with you inside the resort during the day, pass outs will for safety concerns not be possible after operating hours.

Q: If I attend as a day-visitor where exactly do I park?
A: Warmbaths Resort has 2 designated parking areas adjacent to the main resort entrance and across the resort’s front main road where day visitors are permitted to park. There will be security personnel to keep a watchful eye on vehicles while supporters enjoy the motorshow. Should you wish to enter your car into the venue main show area then you need to either pre-register for the Show And Shine competition or purchase an AutoPavilion ticket (limited quantity) for non-competitor VAG vehicles.

Q: What time is the Afterfest and who can get access?
A: The Afterfest takes place on Saturday evening from 18h00 to 00h00. All residents (on-site and off-site accommodation visitors) as well as GTI and TCross campers get access. Sadly all Polo day-visitors have to leave the resort by 5pm and will not be allowed to attend the Afterfest. There is a limited quantity of special Ibiza Afterfest tickets for day visitors who wish to attend the Afterfest. *The afterparty in 2021 is pending government restrictions to allow it to take place.
 
Q: How many cars are allowed to enter the Show And Shine competition?
A: The judging panel scrutinizes roughly 400 vehicle pre-registration entries beforehand. Approximately 160 of those are shortlisted as successful contestants to display their vehicles at the motorshow. Ultimately 30 of the vehicles that have then been judged on the main stage will be selected as category winners, with 1 finalist being crowned Best Of Show for the current season.

Q: I want to display my car at Show & Shine how do I enter? 
A: The Show & Shine pre-registration is free and takes place via the event website submission as from 1 November 2020 to 15 March 2021.
Note that all resident visitors can take their car into the venue but not all visitors can display a car at the Show & Shine competition space.
Pre-registration means that your car will go through a selection process with a panel of judges before the actual event, and only successful applicants who the judges deem fit to compete are given a registration approval.
All submissions do receive either a "successful" or an "unsuccessful" registration notification via email before the show.
Approved vehicles will receive a dash board (official Vdub Camp Fest contestant) display form by 30 March 2021.

Q: What other activities happen at the motorshow?
A: The Sound-Off, Low Limbo, Dyno and other motorshow related programme content will be announced ahead of the event. The entertainment line-up will also be detailed on the event social media at regular monthly intervals.

Q: The Crafter Bus crew camping venue is really interesting. Can I pay it off in stages?
A: Unfortunately all attendance tickets need to be paid once off in full. We suggest collecting the portions from crew members as quick as you can and then paying for the ticket either via EFT or at your nearest Standard Bank branch. Purchasing of any event tickets needs to be done as early as possible because Camp Fest tickets do sell out very fast.

Q: Why do festival tickets cost more than a normal visit to the venue at another time of the year?
A: The festival is an expensive special event to host. The exclusivity of the venue for the motorshow requires substantial upfront funding and the national laws for extraordinary large events (the Gatherings Act and the Sports & Recreation Act) dictates that a significant amount of expensive logistical changes need to be made at the venue for the congregation of a large crowd.
Further factors are the costly audio visual setups and the unique main stage, the Wolfsburg giveaway car and show prizes which include an international tour, the Afterfest entertainment, the vast security deployment, safety officers and medical standby services, licenses and structural certifications, public liability insurance and event attorney services, additional ablution and sanitation, access control fencing and bar code scanning equipment, VIP areas, marquees and furniture, the Amsterdam DJ vehicle, Dyno and Sound-off service providers, event memorabilia and souvenirs for supporters, print and media advertising, there are outsourced services that are too many to list here.
Note must also be made that the festival takes a full 12 months of planning, equipment and physical work every year and this requires resources that is not possible to accomplish at zero cost.
Lastly, it would be a tragedy to provide nil support to the charities who desperately rely on the assistance that the event provides to the orphanages annually. So while organizers always keep ticket prices to the lowest possible rate, the brand does depend on a marginal increase to make the objective of hosting an awesome festival achievable.

Q: I would like to arrive earlier than Friday, or leave Warmbaths later than Sunday. Is it possible to do this?
A: Supporters are welcome to book for additional days to prolong their stay. Early arrival can be done by getting a Vor Dem Fest ticket on Quicket that corresponds with your main event attendance ticket.
Longer stays after the festival can be done by calling the venue to book additional days directly with their reservations desk. Alternatively email [email protected] to extend stays as from the Sunday after the festival.

Q: I really enjoy Camp Fest and never miss it. Is there anything different happening for the 13th Edition show?
A: Firstly the outstanding venue where there are often new developments and upgrades offers a great experience for supporters. Secondly the organizers always have a few surprises in the event programme to make it a memorable festival. This year we are planning a remarkable product launch and changes to the motorshow layout. We can’t give away too much information beforehand otherwise it wouldn’t be a surprise ;)
