The Africa Caribic Festival 2016 takes place from 8 to 10 July in the Middle Franconian city of Wassertrüdingen located between Ratisbon and Heilbronn. In 2016 the festival celebrates its 10-years anniversary and introduces a new camping concept, called „respect camping“, for the first time. This new concept arose from the family campsite with the purpose to extend the offer for ecoconscious campers. Essential aspects are a clean campsite due to systemactic waste separation as well as keeping peace at night, thus aggregates or loud music should be avoided. The name „respect camping“ already implies that a certain respect for nature and one’s neighbours should be promoted. The pre-sale for all tickets ends on 1 July and the 3-days-ticket of 40€ and 4€ advance booking fee will cost 46€ then. The „respect camping“ will be 10€ for campers older than 16 years minus the usually paid 5€ waste fee. A 1-day-ticket will be 25€ for Friday and Saturday respectively minus a 2,50€ advance booking fee. Moreover, there will be as usually two campsites for tents next to the festival ground, an area for campers and caravans as well as a separate campsite for families.

The diverse program is presented on two stages, on a smaller stage there will be yoga, poetry slams and other events. The festivals’ headliners are Irie Révoltés on Friday at 21:00 to 22:30, followed by Harrison Stafford & The Professor Crew at 23:15 to 00:45, and on Saturday Anthony B & Band at 21:00 to 22:30. The band Irie Révoltés from Heidelberg with their Franco-German rap by Mal Élevé and Carlito spread a special atmosphere that makes people dance and Reggae-Star Anthony B fascinates and inspires since decades with seventeen albums and hundreds of hits. Besides, the accompanying program consists of various workshops, among others there will be a Copoeira group, a circus school and a magician at the festival.

Drinks and food from all over the world can be bought at the festival ground, additionally there will be a beer garden for fans of the regional kitchen as well as food booths at the camping ground. Products like crafts, jewellery and clothes will be sold on Sunday at the Africa & Caribic Market. A part of the revenues will be donated to charitable organisations like „Welthungerhilfe e.V.“ or „Menschen für Menschen“ that provides help for Ethiopia. The Africa Caribic Fetsival’s comprehensive offer is topped off with the natural outdoor pool „Wörnitzbad“ within only five minutes of walking distance for campers.
