Gans Anders Festival

22.- 24. September

baggersee Innsbruck

Welcome to the Gans Anders Festival, where the mountains are high, the lake is clear, and the creativity is off the charts! This festival is all about letting loose, embracing your inner artist, and having a great time with friends old and new.

You’ll find three stages that will keep you grooving all day and night, with acoustic and electronic music that’ll make you want to dance like nobody’s watching. And if you need a break from the tunes, you can always check out the live art performances or get your hands dirty in a workshop or two.

We take our environmental responsibility seriously, so we’re proud to say that everything at the festival is recycled, composted, or reused. Our team of volunteers work hard to make sure the festival has a minimal impact on the environment, while still keeping the fun factor at maximum levels.

So pack your bags, grab your sunscreen, and join us for the most unforgettable weekend of the year. We can’t wait to see what you’ll create and who you’ll meet at Gans Anders.



The festival is from the 22. september until the 24. september at the baggersee in innsbruck. More informations at the end of this page.

There is a strict ban on glass containers throughout the entire festival grounds. As the lake area is often walked on barefoot during the summer, no exceptions can be made in this area.

We have prepared special containers for waste separation. Please pay attention to them so that we can have a clean environment. If anyone intentionally pollutes the surroundings by throwing cigarette butts or litter, we will ask them to leave the festival grounds. We reserve the right to refuse admission, and environmental pollution is not acceptable.

At our festival, we place great importance on awareness and respectful interaction. The awareness team, provided by Arche, is always on site and available to assist with any problems or questions.

Discrimination, racism, and hate have no place at our festival and will not be tolerated. You can recognize the awareness team by their purple fanny packs and light-up necklaces, and they are always available to listen. We want all visitors to have an unforgettable and safe time with us, and that includes awareness of our fellow human beings and their needs.

Unfortunately, animals are not allowed on the lake area premises!
