  • Summary

    As I was wandering alone at night in the darkness, surrounded by the pulsating music and blurry silhouettes of people in the distance, I found myself looking for a home.
    And then, I remembered my Key…🗝

    Full description of yer concept

    Coming Home Camp provides a home for every Borderling and invites you to engage in any of our daily workshops of arts, crafts, up-cycling, yoga, breath-work, poetry, singing etc. Be it during the day or the night, you can also come here to, relax, drink a cup of tea and hang out with us. You are welcome to be part of our dreamy family whenever you feel like “going back Home” during an intense festival week!

    Our intention is to create a domed-orangery with a porch, an outdoor kitchen equipped with a clay oven, and a little garden. The dome, porch and kitchen will host various activities and workshops during the week, and are made for You! Once you pass the Garden Gate the Coming Home Family will welcome and greet you with tea, cookies, and a special trinket. Here, you will be loved and accepted as you are - by the Homies but also by yourself!!

    Everyday is a new day in the Dome-Home, filled with different characters of the Family. A Mom will be there. A Dad also. The Auntie is also around, as well as Grandpa. No matter who's at home, you're always welcome just as you are. As the family member you always dreamt to be.

    - Make-Your-Own-Pizza-Party: one evening during the week (day TBC), you are invited to a drop-in party!
    - Clay-Oven: all Borderlings are also welcome to use our clay-oven which will be on circ. 3h per day. The last hour will be OPEN for ANYONE to USE!

    What is this?

    Hey friend! Welcome to the virtual drawing board of The Borderland. This is the place where we prototype the projects we'll realise during the week in the quarry.

    Dream crew



    • Do you need electricity from the grid? How much in Watts? 4KWatts

    • Will there be light? The camp will be partially illuminated at night, meaning that the Dome will have some fairy lights and so on lit up so that people can still see when coming in and out. But no light installation.

    • Will anything BURN? HAZARDS: - Electricity: Potential bad setup electrical solutions for the limited sound & light equipment with regard to rain etc. - Fire: Clay-oven - Wind : Exposition to strong winds for the Dome dome PRECAUTIONS: Electricity: Use of rainproof cables etc. Fire: Compulsory presence of a person from the camp when the oven will be on + fire extinguisher Wind: Dome will have to be stabilised in the ground + that's why we are favouring a non-exposed placement.

    • What is your audio footprint? We will be playing some music, mainly day-time, chill-out music/soundscapes except for some workshops and live barrel organ playing. Meaning we are not a sound camp but will still have some music.
