14th-16th July 2023
Dear Zappanale fans,
the construction of the observation tower is no longer an issuer..., but there is even more going on on the racetrack.
There are new tenants of the area in the inner course of the racecourse, the "Bernsteinreiter". The usable area of the "Bernsteinreiter" also extends over "our grounds". We have had good conversations with the owner and have already discovered that we can combine traditional things with their actions. 😊
There are now horses / ponies and a small petting zoo on the inner run, a great offer for those of you who travel with the whole family, especially with children.
We took a look at it with 2 founders of the Arf Society e.V. on site for you and can recommend it to you: Do it this year in the spirit of the "Western Genre" of Frank, grab a hat and then *RUN HOME SLOW* 😊
Here you can find more information about the Bernsteinreiter:
Next ZappaTime at rockradio.de will take place on April 9, 2023.
ZappaTime is a monthly broadcast. Here you will get actual information about Zappanale. Better bookmark the link to the entire series!
Listen to the music and get in the mood for Zappanale!
By the way: rockradio.de has been broadcasting live from Zappanale since 2010!
Of all the events that take place at the racetrack, Zappanale visitors are the only visitors who have been allowed to use the Green Camp every year so far. According to the town plan, camping is not permitted. We have no legal right to use this area. Because of your exemplary behavior we have always received a special permit for camping, you are great, thank you very much. Please continue to be so careful with the site so that we can continue to receive the special permit in the future.
And now for you the new prices for the #Z32

Example of your ticket purchase plus camping

Greencamp: 60,- plus 2x25,- = 110,- € regardless of the number of people
Suncamp: 25,- plus 2x15,- = 55,- € regardless of the number of people
Please remember: the sale for our Christmas special ends on December, 31st 2022 00:00 (CET)
Don't you think that we'd get bored at the racetrack. A resourceful investor had thought about building a 40 meter high tower in the middle of the Sun Camp (see report from the OZ on the right).
We had several discussions with the city to explain what the consequences would be for us. In the end, the city representatives' meeting REJECTED the construction of the tower and we could breathe a sigh of relief. It is well known that challenges are there to grow with them.
Stay healthy & keep yourselves brave! See you soon
Your Zappanale team

This image shows how it was supposed to look like
Die Vorfreude ist riesengroß,
was ist da in Meck-Pomm nur los?
Bei Ankunft im Bad Doberan,
schau ich mir gleich Frank‘s Statue an.
Zappanale - Music Is The Best!
Live music is the best! I know we should have guessed,
But every Zappanale helps us put this to the test.
With supergroups to thrill us and some crazy combos too,
Seit Jahren schon, es ist längst Brauch
Wollen selbst aus feinen Kreisen
Verschwor'ne Fans und and're auch
Im Sommer an die Ostsee reisen
Ich fahre mit meinem Rad vom Ostseestrand Börgerende
am Donnerstag nach Bad Doberan zur Rennbahn hin.
Der Molli überholt mich, fährt schneller,
doch die kommenden Tage sind für mich der Gewinn.

When arriving at the terrain, the question arises: Sun- or Greencamp? Each has its advantages. The Sun-Camp is brighter during the day, the GreenCamp darker at night. The on-site guides will certainly help you decide.
Usually the campsite is equipped with sanitary facilities from Wednesday to Monday. Please check the current announcements.
You prefer a real bed? Bad Doberan and the surrounding region offer accommodation in all price categories. The Zappanale takes place in a summer vacation region, so you have a clear advantage as an early booker. Please ask at the tourist information.
Whether you are coming from Hamburg, Berlin or Bratislava, heading for Rostock is the right decision. If Bad Doberan is indicated as the next stop, this is the time to prepare for the exit. When you arrive in Rostock, get on the next regional express in the direction of Wismar, which you then leave in: Bad Doberan.
From there you have several options: Traditionally with the Molli train, it stops directly at the festival area, or you can get a ride from one of the easily recognizable Zappanale fans. You can meet them at the Zappa monument or at the nearby supermarket - both are five minutes away from the train station.
Your navigation device will surely bring you to the racecourse (54.124677,11.869512) in Bad Doberan. If you don't have a navigation system: Exit Bad Doberan, direction Bad Doberan/Heiligendamm.
In Bad Doberan - at the first major crossing with traffic lights - turn right in the direction of Kühlungsborn/Heiligendamm and pass the Frank Zappa monument (about 100m after the crossing).
The racecourse is halfway between Bad Doberan and Heiligendamm, first you have to pass the festival area. If you are not the first, this is easy to recognize. In the following traffic circle you take the last exit and can slowly switch to live music mode.
If you would like to make yourself comfortable on a back seat, look for a ride share. Either via the community or e.g. here: drive2day.de.
