NATURE & SUSTAINABILITY
Monticule could not exist without the Domaine de Gayfe and the people of Quercy. Therefore, one of the core principles we decided to inscribe in the DNA of Monticule has been sustainability. We believe that a festival that is build on the intimacy and privacy we claim to deliver during these four days also has a responsibility toward the local community at large and the beautiful nature that surrounds us in Southern France. Since the beginning, it has been crucial to us to maintain not only a operating but personal relationship with the Mayor and regional legislative bodies, so as to minimize the negative effects such an event could have on the local population. We try to get as much of our building supplies and services as possible from local companies to the festival site. On a bigger scale, we aim at minimizing our ecological footprint by producing our own drinks and providing mainly vegetarian, but in all cases, regional food.
The Monticule Festival puts special emphasis on sustainability and conservation. Please respect the nature and allow us to re-enter Monticule Festival next year. In your ticket fee is a €5 garbage deposit, we will refund for the disposal of a filled garbage bag at the end of the festival.
Please help us keeping Domaine de Gayfié as beautiful as it was before you came by using the provided mobile ashtrays and trash bins to dispose your waste. Consider also: Even a cigarette butt can accidentally start a fire in a dry environment!
The camping area is filled with trees protecting the tents from direct sunlight.
Please note due to the risk of forest fires, camping stoves and open fires are strictly prohibited! The campsite cannot be reached by car.
Free drinking water is provided from several places on the site, you are welcome to fill up your containers and bottles.
DANGER OF FOREST FIRE
Please note, we are located in a very dry region with a high risk of forest fires. Therefore we strictly have to prohibit use of every kind of open fire. Furthermore we would like to advise you to dispose your cigarette butts into the provided ashtrays, to protect the stunning nature.
Paramedics are on site at all times. Their location can be found festival pamphlets.
We have set up beautiful outdoor showers, and made sure there are plenty of facilities. Please bring your own toilet paper and remember that only environmentally degradable shampoo or soaps are allowed to be used. It’s a lot healthier not to rub plastic into your skin anyway.
There will be the possibility to withdrawl cash on site.
In the very unlikely event that the weather plays a trick on us, there is a large ballroom to keep us dry and warm. Last years in June the average temperature was 25 degrees Celsius and no rain, however, appropriate clothing never hurts!

Domaine de Gayfié lies in Parc naturel régional de Causses du Quercy, which means that there are plenty of different things to explore. By following the small serpentines down the hill, you gonna pass the Gouffre de Lantouy, a turquoise 80-meters deep spring and the ruins of an ancient monastery. Passing the Lot via the beautiful old suspension bridge you reach Cajarc, one of the most beautiful french mid-age villages. The authentic market-place, shops and restaurants definitely worth a visit.
Domaine de Gayfié and thus Monticule Festival is located at one of Central Europe’s darkest areas, known as the black triangle. Light pollution is very low here, so you have a crystal clear view of the sky at night. Our friend Jan-Rauschning Vits is going to teach you everything you need to know about stars, planets, signs and astronomical navigation. Just lay down on the grass and dive into space. Shootings stars guaranteed. Lessons will be hold in english.
As Domaine de Gayfié is a vacation residence during the year, its infrastructure has a lot to offer. You can find a tennis court, a basketball court, a ping-pong table and a volleyball court over there.
Monticule Festival is all about love. And to make love, it is very important to be in an adequate physical shape. Enter into a dialogue with your spirit and energise your body for the following hours of raving. Feel welcome to join our daily Yoga classes. Your body is everything you need.
Dancing your shoes off can sometimes be exhausting. Have a good sleep, get breakfast and move your ass to the pool to place yourself into the talented hands of our body-therapists who offer you resourcing massages on open pricing every day.
Basically it's a pool. A big one. With a lot of fun inside.
Food is beautiful and food is connecting people. Therefore we created Monticuisine! From Wednesday to Saturday between 18.00 and 20.00 we turn off the music to honour the time for dinner. Let’s head for the core of Domaine de Gayfié to start the evening by spending some time together. Our chefs offer one three course meal per day, which combine regional vegetables and fruits, pastries, pasta, nuts and salads topped with local specialities.There is also a barbecue station offering limited amounts of beef from cattle grazing just half a kilometre away.
The lovely landowning family from Domaine de Gayfié takes care of your perfect start into the day. Enjoy french baguette, fromage and self-made jam with a glass of wine, coffee, tea, juice or milk right in front of the historical Bergerie.
Over the course of the day Gee-Shack provides creative and fresh sandwiches, reinterpreted crêpes and chilled soups. They made their mark through cooking on several events in Germany. You can find the coolest of all cooking gangs from 14.00 to 7.00 in the morning.
We take our “tailor-made” declaration very serious, but not only in relation to the music selection. Apart from our commitment to use strictly top-shelf liquor, we produce a substantial share of our non-alcoholic drinks ourselves: ginger beer, iced teas, lemonades, juices, and smoothies, just to mention a few. We guarantee a rainbow for your taste buds, and a feast for your eyes.
POINT DE VUE COCKTAILBAR
From this year on, the Point de Vue Cocktail Bar opens its metal gate, inviting you to the seasoned hands of David Metz, a Munich barkeeper. Together with his team, he will supplement the fantastic view at the brink of a 100-meter-deep cliff with novel creations alongside classic old-school drinks.
WHAT GOES AROUND JUICE
Like last year our friends of What Goes Around Juice provide the freshest, cold-pressed juices and smoothies from regional fruits and vegetables. Cure your hangover and have a good time with the post-hippie fraction of Monticule family.
