The parking for campervans is near the campsite and it is sold separately.
Campervan parking fees:
- campervan - regular parking 70€ (full festival)
- campervan - parking with electricity 95€ (see ELECTRICITY for more details).
You can get a campervan parking ticket on our webshop. The number of campervan parkings is limited.
Please note that:
- it is not possible to put up a tent next to the campervan.
- estate cars (wagon cars) do not count as campervans, so please don't buy the campervan parking if you would like to enter with your car (you will not be able to get in). If you're not sure about your vehicle, feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org before purchasing.
The camping is open from Wednesday 10.07.2024, until Monday, 15.07.2024. Camping from Thursday till Monday is included in every festival ticket. If you want to arrive already on Wednesday see EARLY ARRIVAL.
You're allowed to bring food and drinks to the campsite but not to the festival area see PROHIBITED OBJECTS.
Petrol power generators are not allowed in the camping area.
There are cold showers in the camping, for hot showers, see HOT SHOWER AND FLUSH TOILETS.
There is drinkable tap water in the campsite, see WATER.
Most of the camping area is located under the trees which is well appreciated during hot summer days. However, keep in mind that it can also get a bit chilly during the night, so bring some warm clothes and a sleeping bag.
Cars are not allowed in the camping area, you can park them in big parking where the festival entrance is, see PARKING.
At Butik Festival, we're nestled within one of the world's most stunning festival locations. This makes us doubly committed to preserving the environment and keeping our festival site immaculate. We can't stand the thought of such natural beauty being marred by plastic cups, bottles, and cans. Therefore, we've implemented a cup deposit system.
How does it work?
When you purchase a drink (in a plastic cup, bottle, or can), a cup deposit will be charged. When you're ready for another drink, simply exchange your old cup for a new one - this way, you won't be charged another deposit. Alternatively, you can drop your cup off at the cup deposit station (located next to the paycard loading station) to get your deposit refunded to your paycard.
Please remember that your paycard will be charged a deposit with your "first" drink purchase. For each subsequent drink, you'll need to return your "old" cup to avoid an additional deposit charge. To get your deposit back, bring your empty cups and your paycard to the cup deposit point. The number of empty cups should match the number of deposits charged to your paycard.
We use reusable plastic cups. They can be washed and reused up to 100 times! This is a significant stride towards reducing festival waste and making Butik Festival more sustainable. Together, we can keep the festival site clean, not just for us, but for the surrounding environment too.
At Butik Festival, we offer a variety of daytime activities to keep you engaged and refreshed. More info TBA.
Early arrival at Butik Festival is possible from Wednesday, 10.07.2024 at 3 PM. The camp will be open and ready to welcome the first visitors. However, an early arrival pass will be required for this extra day of camping.
Do note that not all bars and food venues will be operational on this early arrival day. And while we're dedicated to getting everything picture-perfect for the festival, there might be some last-minute production work underway throughout the festival area.
You can get an early arrival pass on our webshop.
- early arrival pass pre-order price: 20€
- early arrival pass on site: 30€
When you arrive at the festival you need to exchange your ticket for a full festival wristband at the box office. Please note, there will be no name checks on the tickets.
More info TBA.
Our festival provides electricity hookups exclusively for campervans. You can get a campervan parking with electricity on our webshop.
Electricity technical info:
- 230V, 6A each
- every outlet has its own RCD
Upon arrival, please inform the staff at the entrance if you require assistance with your electricity hookup. They will provide you with the necessary instructions and the technician's contact number. Ensure you have your campervan with electricity ticket ready. You will need to call the technician for the hookup process or in case of any issues.
The technician is available from 8.00 until 22:00.
Users need to have their own cable, we suggest 50m (better even more!)
Please note that petrol/diesel power generators are NOT ALLOWED in the camp. The noise is disturbing other campers and also inhabitants of Tolmin who live nearby the campsite. Being respectful to the local community is very important in order to keep this festival location.
Butik Festival, in collaboration with Punk Rock Holiday and Overjam Reggae Festival, takes pride in contributing to our local community through the 'Festival Fund' initiative. This is where we donate all unspent money left on paycards after the festival to support various NGOs chosen by our local community.
In 2022 and 2023, we were able to donate over 25,000€, supporting a diverse array of causes - from rescue dogs, the local football club, breast cancer awareness organization, firefighters, association for helping people with disabilities, model gliders to humanitarian organizations for the underprivileged.
When we say 'we donated', we're acknowledging that you, the People of Butik, are a vital part of this initiative. Your leftover paycard funds are now actively helping these organizations, so thank you for joining us in this initiative last year.
The Festival Fund initiative is something that brings us immense joy, seeing the positive impact it has on so many lives. Rest assured, we will continue this tradition in future events, spreading smiles and making a difference where it matters most.
Festival map is usually available once the festival app is ready.
For your safety and well-being, we provide a First Aid Point that operates 24 hours a day during the festival. The First Aid Point is more than just for emergencies, it's there to make sure your health needs are taken care of throughout the festival.
At Butik Festival, you'll find an assortment of food stands, ready to cater to your varying dietary needs. Our food vendors are providing quality meals, including options for vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free diets.
Water is essential, especially during the festival. To ensure you stay hydrated, we've placed water stations all over the festival grounds. You're encouraged to bring your own empty bottles to the campsite for refilling.
Please take a minute and read how garbage deposit works and why it is important.
The garbage deposit is a system implemented at Butik Festival where campsite attendees are required to provide a monetary deposit upon arrival. This deposit serves as an incentive for festival-goers to properly dispose of their waste by returning full garbage bags to designated points. By implementing the garbage deposit, the festival aims to maintain a clean and litter- free environment, preserving the natural beauty of the festival and its surroundings.
- How does it work?
The garbage deposit is required for campsite attendees at Butik Festival.
- Upon arrival, campers will receive 2 trash bags.
- 10€ will be deducted from your PayCard for the garbage deposit
- Return full garbage bags to designated points to receive a 10€ reload on your PayCard. Check out GARBAGE CENTER OPENING HOURS.
- What if I am not staying at the campsite?
If you're staying elsewhere, present your reservation proof upon arrival to avoid the garbage deposit. Proactively share your accommodation details and proof to prevent any misunderstanding.
- Why is this so important?
Butik Festival takes place in a beautiful location on the edge of Triglav National Park.
To preserve the festival and campsite areas, it's crucial to prevent them from becoming a landfill.
Maintaining cleanliness enhances the festival experience and ensures a positive relationship with the local community, who are strict about keeping nature clean.
Operating hours TBA.

We kindly ask that you leave the following items at home as they're strictly not allowed on the festival site: glass bottles, objects that could be used as projectiles, knives, weapons, or any items that could potentially be used as a weapon. These items will not, under any circumstances, be permitted into the festival area. We have checks in place, and any found items will be confiscated.
However, we understand that basic items like cutlery are essential for those camping with us. You're absolutely welcome to bring these to the campsite.
Every visitor participates in the festival at his own risk. Besides, every visitor is obliged to take action for the guarantee of his own safety. The visitor is also responsible for his property. The promoter, Butik Ent. d.o.o., is not liable for any lost or damaged property whatsoever. The promoter is also not liable for violations of the Slovenian law, thievery, injuries, or damages by third parties that happen in course of the festival.
Please follow the instructions of the security personnel and avoid senseless annoying actions so everybody will feel comfortable.
To ensure the safety of all attendees and staff, our security team will conduct bag checks at the festival entrance. Individuals found carrying prohibited items will have those items confiscated.

There will be two taxis available at the time of the festival. We will post the taxi drivers number on our social media days before the festival. Additionally, you can obtain these numbers from the festival's info point when you arrive.
As many of you will be flying to Butik and may not be able to bring a tent with you, we have decided to offer the option to rent a tent. Our aim is to discourage people from purchasing tents specifically for the festival and then discarding them afterwards.
The tents are already set up when you arrive and there's no need to fold up the tent after the festival. We do require a €50 deposit in cash to secure your tent, which will be returned to you upon departure, provided the tent is left undamaged.
To ensure a smooth process, here's a step-by-step guide on what to do*:
- Upon arrival at the festival, proceed to the info point.
- Show your rent-a-tent ticket to the staff.
- Pay the €50 deposit in cash (credit cards or festival cards are not accepted for this transaction).
- A member of our rent-a-tent team will escort you to your tent.
- Inform the rent-a-tent team of your expected departure time. If your departure is outside of info point working hours, you will exchange contact details with our rent-a- tent team so you can call them when you're ready to leave.
- When you're ready to depart, either go to the info point or call our rent-a-tent team member.
- Our rent-a-tent team will accompany you to check the condition of the tent.
- If the tent is undamaged, you can retrieve your deposit at the info point.
*In case of any changes regarding the process, you will be informed.
The price of 140€ includes:
- a Quechua tent (180 x 210 cm)
- 2 self-inflatable mats
Please remember to bring your own sleeping bag, as the nights can get quite chilly.
Please note that this service is only available for pre-order and will not be an option during the festival. Pre-orders will be accepted until May 31st.
Tickets are available in our webshop.
We only sell full festival tickets.
We do not offer ticket refunds, however, you can always sell your ticket through our official resale platform.
For resale check TICKET RESALE.
We've created an official ticket reselling platform where you can sell and buy your Butik tickets safely. It's the one and only 100% secure way to purchase your festival tickets if the primary sales are sold out.
Beware of unverified ticket offers from random individuals posting on Instagram and Facebook comments, as we can't guarantee their authenticity. Remember, we don't have an official partnership with third-party platforms like Ticketswap, so buying tickets from such places is not 100% safe.
On our official reselling platform, when you purchase a ticket, you receive a new one with a unique barcode, and the seller's ticket is immediately invalidated or 'burnt'. This means you won't need to worry about anyone else having the same ticket as yours - your entry to the festival is assured!
Check out if there are any available tickets on our official resale platform.
Click here to read ticket terms and conditions.
We understand that ticket arrangements can change and sometimes tickets get passed on to others. As long as you have a valid ticket, you're good to go, regardless of the name it bears. We don't check if the name on your ticket matches your ID at the box office, as it's the unique code on the ticket that is key, not the name.
If you've purchased your ticket from a friend or through our official resale webpage, rest assured, your ticket is still valid.
Our festival's exact timetable will be available once the festival gets closer, allowing you to plan your festival experience effectively. Here's a general overview of the music program for each day:
Wednesday: 16:00 - 01:00
Thursday: 14:00 - 01:00
Friday: 12:00 - 07:00
Saturday: 10:00 - 07:00

At the festival and camp area, running clean water is provided free of charge. Please look for the sign that the water is drinkable before you refill your own bottles (water in Slovenia/Tolmin is very clean, however not all pipes are officially checked before the festival).
Please note that you are not allowed to bring any bottles to the venue area. You need to buy a bottle of water at the bars and after that refill it at the water points as often as you want. Please also note, that once you leave the venue and want to enter the venue again, you will not be allowed to bring the bottles back to the venue area!
