The train station in Hoppegarten after the second day of the festival. I heard that on the first day some people got hurt and so the next day, the security guards stood at the exits to slow the crowd. There weren't extra trains and the police instructed the people to take the whole length of the platform. I got on the second one back to the city.
Someone said there were 80,000 people at the festival. I won't be coming back next year (or any other), since I don't like the fact that the organizers collect information from the chips or the high prices of food and drinks inside. You can say "well it's a business, what did you expect?" and you'd be right. I don't want to pay for a product which I think is not worth it. I prefer to see live music in a more intimate way, where I can feel the energy of the artist and the connection the music creates between the artist and the audience.
