Venue

We would like to use the Stadthalle Betzdorf as our venue again this year.

The Stadthalle offers us enough space for up to 800 standing and around 80 seated people. In addition, we have enough space for merchandise and information stands.

Map

We would like to point out that, as things stand at the moment, we can only admit visitors to the Stadthalle Betzdorf who fulfil one of the three "G" criteria. I.e. you must be

  • demonstrably GIFTED or
  • demonstrably GENESED or
  • TESTED (test not older than 24 hours).

There are several places in Betzdorf and the surrounding area where a test is offered. Please note that our festival lasts more than 24h and we can only grant you admission on the second day if you have a test that is not older than 24h. A medical mask or FFP2 mask is compulsory in parts of the festival area. Please also remember this.

As soon as other regulations should arise for the Loud and Proud, we will inform you here and via the usual channels.

As the COVID situation is not exactly predictable and regulations can change quickly, the Loud and Proud may have to be cancelled after all. In these circumstances, tickets purchased will remain valid for 2022 and may be refunded if desired.

Tickets

Tickets are available  in our online-Shop.

Accessibility

It is important to us that people with limited mobility can also experience and enjoy the festival.

We are happy to support you within the scope of our possibilities. Our new venue, the Stadthalle Betzdorf, is barrier-free.

For wheelchair users and their accompanying persons, there are seats available in the gallery (seating area). These can be reached via a lift. Please understand that, in the interest of everyone's safety, we cannot provide seats for wheelchairs in the standing-room area.

If you have a "B" on your ID card, you may bring an accompanying person with you free of charge. In this case, please buy a ticket for yourself (wheelchair users please for the seating area, as this is the only way we can keep a seat free for the accompanying person) and then contact us to register the accompanying person.

Eating & Drinking

No alcohol

We are convinced, and have experienced time and again over the last ten years, that the Loud and Proud Crowd does not need alcohol to celebrate happily and exuberantly.

Therefore, we will again refrain from serving alcohol this year.

Overnight stay

Gymnasium

Due to the COVID situation, we cannot offer a gym sleepover this year. You will have to plan your own overnight stay.

Accommodation search

Alternative accommodation can be found here.

Organiser

The festival is organised by the CVJM Loud and Proud. We are an association that focuses on Christian concerts and their organisation.

Our goal is to inspire other people for a life with God through good music, true-to-life messages and an authentic appearance.

We are united by our enthusiasm for music of different styles and the joy of celebrating together. As a voluntary movement, we are happy about our many committed members (over 150 from all over Germany and Switzerland), which include people from all generations who contribute to our association in different ways (actively and financially).

The CVJM Loud and Proud is a supra-regional association based in Weitefeld (Westerwald) and affiliated to the CVJM Westbund.

Film & Photo

You are welcome to take photos (without flash) as long as you respect the personal rights of the persons photographed. For legal reasons, we are not allowed to film or record music. If you would like to accompany the festival with professional photo equipment, please contact us via the contact form.

Protection of minors

Without a supervisor, the following applies: - children under 14 years of age may be present until 10 p.m. - young people under 16 years of age may be present until midnight.

The following persons are considered to be supervisors: - a parent - a person of full age, for whom you must have the following declaration of consent ("Muttizettel") with you: Educational order (print out, fill in completely, bring with you)

Worship service

Unfortunately we cannot offer a service this year due to the COVID situation.

Merch & Meet

It is important to us that the artists of the festival are role models for our guests. That's why we also want to promote contact between bands and the audience.

Each band will be represented with a merchandise stand.

On the one hand, you can buy CDs, T-shirts and other articles of your favourite band, and on the other hand, you can meet the band members.

Before and after the concert, you can collect autographs, ask questions and certainly take a selfie or two.

According to the current regulations, masks are compulsory at the stands.

Press

Dear members of the press, we are happy to provide you with all the information, press releases and pictures/graphics you need for a report. We will fill this section with the necessary content in good time before the festival. If you need information in advance or have any questions, please feel free to contact us via the contact form. We look forward to a good cooperation!
