Some of the improvements for 2019

One of the goals for the Sweden Rock management team is to continuously develop and improve the festival for each year. Hence, in the beginning of October we gathered a number of key persons from our organization for the yearly evaluation conference. With the support of all the input and feedback from you, our guests, we discussed how the 2018 festival turned out, and what we can be improved for next year.

 

A lot of work remains and some things need more time before they can be announced, but some of the improvements for 2019 are now "finished enough" for us to present.

 

The one most criticized thing this year was the toilets, which had been centralized to two main station areas. As requested, we are now changing back the number of toilet stations from two to four, spread out over the festival area.

In order to minimize the risk of toilet-line build-ups, we will also improve the entrance- and exit logistics for each of the toilet-station areas.

 

We are also adding a water-flushing toilet next to the ramp for disabled.

 

To make sure that drinking-water stations do not to add to the toilet lines, we will move the fresh-water stations out of the toilet areas.

 

In addition, we will increase the total number of fresh-water drinking stations, as well as improve the visibility and signage for them, so that everyone gets better access to free water.

 

Other improvements we can mention at this point:
• In order ease the coming and going for taxis, we will improve taxi-area entry.
• We will increase the number of units where you can use credit cards as paying method.
• We will introduce a new food area, and work to offer an even larger range of foods than before.

 

More information about these and other improvements will come, so keep a look out!
