10 Insider tips to Wickerpark Music Festival 2016

1. The Festival is happening on a Saturday (for the first time)

It may sound obvious but after 5 editions happening on a Sunday, we're moving the Festival to Saturday. The reason is simple: We want the party to go on with several DJ taking on the decks until late. Spend your day at the beach or visit Batroun then put on your dancing shoes starting 4:30 PM.

2. The event goes on till 4AM

YES! With DJs Rami O, Ziad Nawfal & Jack The Fish playing tunes to keep you dancing into the night. Like previous years, we've arranged a camping area for you late owls to sleep in Batroun (read next point).
