"Villages" are sub-camps. Villages organise themselves, often a community around a topic or region. Villages organise a part of their facillities themselves; they might have their own workshops and might invite the public to their camp.


What is a village?

A village is a group of people who want to camp together and organise themselves more or less. Sometimes a village also wants to organise or display sub-events or hackspaces/townhalls for their village. Some villages might setup a small datacenter, hack-tent, fancy lights, a place to have workshops/talks, etc.

What is a village not?

A cheap way for your company to do adverting or recruiting on the event. If you want to support a village in goods or financially that's ok, but try to limit your commercial or governmental presence on the event.

How do I get/make one?

Organise yourselves, find out with how many people you want to have your village, what you want to do in your village. How much space you -need-. etc. Then make a village page on the wiki. If you have any questions on what is possible or want to do something big/special. Contact us.

I want to do something special! Now what?

Cool! We love to hear what you have in mind and what you need for it. Most of the stuff you will probably need to organise yourself, but we can help out in regards to placement, power, network, space, etc.

Can we rent tents via you?

Yes. Please take a look at the Camping-Section in the [ticketshop].

Can we select a location for our village?

Not the exact location, but you can select on which field you want you village placed. Please take a look at the Fields page to learn about the properties of each field.

You can also place set a map marker on the Villages-Form.

How does Village placement work?

  • Visitors/Villagers select a preferred location and field. Please try to balance the 'usage' of each field. If there are already 50 Villages on a field, please select another one.
  • Visitors/Villagers put lots of information about their village into the Village-Form (click the 'edit with Form' button).
  • On the 1st of July, the Villages team will revisit the preferred location and move around Villages. The goal here is to meet as much constraints as possible.
  • Villages forming a Clusters will be placed next to each other

Since will be a lot of conflicting requirements we will move most villages around on the field. This can't be helped since there will be contradicting constraints.

The village orga team will try to consider as much of your requirements as possible.

When will we know our final location?

At the beginning of July. It is not possible to confirm a specific location before that date!

The current plan is to have a meeting on the first of July where we place/move the villages.

We want to bring some heavy/bulky stuff for our village. Can we deliver right to the village location?"

Yes/Depends. Driving is only allowed on paved roads. And access to the campsite will only be availabe bevore and after the event. Details on that will follow once we have deceided how to handle that.

How is waste-disposal arranged?

  • Regular event waste (trashbags) can be disposed of in one of the many bins around the fields.
  • For larger items (not household trash): Please take home everything you bring to SHA2017. Bear in mind that everything you leave behind will cost us valuable volunteer-time and money we could be spending on more fun stuff!

Other unsorted Notes

  • Unfortunately we need to follow some regulations. Please take a look at the Camping Page for more details.
  • There is a limited amount of tickets for campers. See Camping for more information on how to get a ticket.
  • If you want to bring lots of large stuff and need vehicle access to the campground please contact us.
  • Multiple villages can form a Cluster. They can share resources like power, network, tents, ... Talk to your neighbours/friends and see if you want to form a Cluster.
  • The deadline to register your village will be around end of June 2017.
  • If there are any questions please write to
  • If you want to have your workshops/meet-ups etc included in the official SHA2017 programme, do contact
  • Likewise if your ambitions go further than workshops and you want to run your own stage, the Content team really would like to know who curates your content and if you would be willing to pick up proposals that the Content team does not consider a good fit for a large stage but more for a specific village stage. Team Content would also like to know if you are willing to host workshops related to the main SHA2017 programme.
  • Early buildup will be possible, but we can't have to many people on the field on the days bevore the event. So please try to plan you buildup so you can do it on one day. Day -1 or earlier will be possible for larger villages.
  • Everything you bring to the camp has to be taken home again. No stuff can be left on the field (old couches, construction material, etc.). So keep that in mind when planing your village.
  • No open swimming pools. Really! There are lakes and open water around the campsite, so use them.
