Where to look for camping spots if you arrive after the opening?
Around 90% of the festival visitors arrive on the day the festival campings open (Saturday the 25th of June in 2016)
so the camping areas do fill-up very quickly. If you arrive after the 1st day and want to stay at one of the normal camping areas with more than two tents, your best chances to find a camping spot are in the southern located campings, the P and J area.The marked areas are the most likely places within "P" and "J" camping areas to still find empty spots
"P" is a normal camping area, close to the Service Centre East and relatively close to the festival entrance at Arena stage. "J" is the Silent & Clean camping area, close to the swimming and fishing lakes.
To get to these camping areas, it's best to travel to the East entrance. You can exchange your ticket for a wristband at the East entrance but it's advised to not enter the campings area at East entrance but instead walk a few minutes south to the South entrance and enter the camping areas there.
From the South entrance you will be directly in the P camping area where you will find lots of empty space and it is also a short walk to the J camping area if you prefer the Silent & Clean area.
If you are just a few people with one or two small tents you will probably be able to find a spot at any of the normal campings, although it will take a lot of walking around and some negotiating/bribing/smooth talking the already situated guests
