As there is still a high demand of the Berlin–Crispendorf shuttle:
The bus is fully booked BUT check public busses to JENA (options at busliniensuche.de or flixbus.de, prices from Berlin range from 10-15€), from Jena take the train to Pößneck (Hopperticket from 9am-3am, 4,90€). From there we provide shuttles. Or check carsharing (blablacar.de).
If you have not received a confirmation for the bus yet, you do not have a seat!
Besides frequent shuttles from the train stations in Pößneck, we offer hotel shuttles at night (within 15km) to avoid rip offs from local cap companies (like last year).
We are very pleased to announce the last two bands of our line up this year: OUR SURVIVAL DEPENDS ON US (Austria) and Slægt (Denmark).
Busses (Berlin–Crispendorf and return) and hotels booked down to the last seat/bed, please don’t send any more requests.
...some more bad news. GENOCIDE SHRINES were forced to cancel their entire tour. Read the band's statement on their Facebook page.
We are extremely excited to announce that DEAD CONGREGATION have been added to the line up and that EURYNOMOS will make their first ever appearance at Chaos Descends.
…and we have some bad news too: WRATHPRAYER and ORACULUM had to cancel their tour.
