In the last few days you were already able to gather first impressions on what the new ground looks like. Here now a few background infos:
1. Why are we not in Borgentreich anymore?
The premises in Borgentreich have been converted to a facility for refugees and asylum seeking people. We wish them that they will be able to feel at home in Borgentreich the same way we have and that they have a good start in Germany.
2. Why Allstedt?
After the good experience with the barracks we were looking for similar facilities. This was extremly difficult since grounds with buildings are very rare (whoever owns a ground with buildings uses those and doesn’t leave them standing vacant so that we can find accommodation there once a year). Also it was important to us that the ground would be located as central as possible. Allstedt is very central and has many shelters where the well-known locations and areas can be placed. We are happy that God also confirmed through independent impressions that we’re in the right place here.
3. What’s exiting and new?
The airfield Allstedt is a great nature-orientated facility which is full of possibilities. We’ll be able to dream up and realise many exciting ideas. There is a great amount of space and different locations. As always, we are curious which new ideas you’ll bring in.
Get invovled and make Freakstock your festival!
4. What’s important?
We know that anything new always brings uncertainty. Be assured that we are in conversation with a lot of people to organise Freakstock as well as possible for everyone and incorporate all kinds of different requirements (a post especially for families will follow in the next few days).
You see, it is new ground time and we’re itching to get going and shape it. Get involved, dream with us and be excited!
