Where is the festival being held?
At the Agricamping Pianeta Verde in Montenero Sabino.
I’m coming without a car. How can I arrive?
Please see the How To Get There page.
To get the best out of the festival, aim to arrive for the opening circle. If you can’t, we’ll welcome you in the best way possible.
If you come by bus and need a lift from the bus stop “Ornaro Alto” that you can take from Tiburtina Station or Fara Sabina Station. Please let us know when you arrive.
Can I participate for just one day?
We would like to create a play community that starts together and ends together. Two weeks before the festival we can let you know if there are places left. Show your interest here.
Can we stay after the festival?
The festival ends on Sunday before lunch, you can stay for lunch and hang out in the afternoon. If you want to carry on the playfulness for a whole week in all, Anthony will be holding a special retreat for the four days after the festival, when you will have the opportunity to go deeper and make a more playful way of living part of you. More info coming soon.
I’m travelling from far away. Can I arrive the night before?
Yes! There is an extra fee of 20 euros for your tent space and delicious dinner, please arrive before 7pm. Please let us know if this is your intention.
What is an unconference?
During the festival, there will be sessions dedicated to the unconference.
Unconference is a non conventional event. In classic conferences there are classic elements, frontal speakers, tight schedules – let’s try for a moment to create a more interactive way of doing this.
A creative way of sharing talents, skills and experience that creates a wonderful play space where all attendees are all potential contributors. All you need to do is show up and you will be given the opportunity to share some activities or play the games suggested by the others.
In classic conferences there are various aspects that you may know well: the call for papers, the speakers, the agenda of the day defined days before, the frontal sessions, etc.
Who will be holding workshops?
Incredible play lovers from all around the world LIKE YOU!
There is a program check it out here (new coming soon) and a more generative and co-creative play space like the unconference where you can propose your workshop or activity.
We’re really sorry, we’ve thought about this a lot and decided it’s not sustainable for the place to have lots of dogs.
Please bring everything you need as the nearest shops are a car ride away and choice is limited.
What is included in the festival ticket?
All activities of the 4 days from Wednsday evening until Sunday after lunch, 4 breakfasts, 4 lunches, 4 dinners, tent space for 4 nights. Drinks and cakes not included.
Up to a month before you can get a refund minus €50 to cover expenses. Alternatively you can give your ticket to someone else.
If we find someone that needs a ticket we’ll put you in touch.
We have decided to cultivate a space with a high presence of healthy play. If you are in the habit of smoking them, we ask you to experience being without at the festival to enjoy the experience with great clarity. We believe that play is much more rewarding!
Can we all sleep outside watching the stars?
In Pianeta Verde the stars in the night sky are a show all by themselves. The evenings can be cool. You can choose to stay in your tent or sleep outside.
Is there a river nearby where we can have a bath?
Yes! It’s very near to the castle.
