#southside2018 – Coffee-Bike Ravensburg at Southside Festival
What more could one of the biggest festivals in Germany wish for, for its 20th birthday, other than a Coffee-Bike premiere? Fulfilling the desire for a mobile coffee bar, which recharged the caffeine batteries of festival visitors around the clock, were the team of Coffee-Bike Ravensburg with their Coffee-Bike at this years Southside Festival. This event serves as the south German counterpart to the Hurricane Festival in north Germany and regularly attracts over 50,000 fans in the Take-Off industrial park in Neuhausen op Eck. The 2018 Line-up included talents including Kraftklub, Marteria, RIN, the Arctic Monkeys, Billy Talent and Beginner.

“The Coffee-Bike is perfect for festivals. We are completely self-sufficient and mobile. That lets us perfectly match the needs and local conditions of our catering assignment,” says Tola (Coffee-Bike Ravensburg). The level of mobility and the self-sufficient operation of the bike without need of external water or electricity allowed the Southside Coffee-Bikers to stand directly by the camping festival-goers, where the morning pick-me-ups such as espresso or cappuccino were very popular. “We were suprised by finding so many people waiting infront of our Coffee-Bike for the “best coffee of the camp” before we opened in the morning”, explaines the Coffee-Biker satisfied. In the afternoon, the Coffee-Bike could be found between the White Stage and the Red Stage. Whether coffee classics, iced lattes, iced tea or fresh pressed orange juice, there was something for everyone along with the best music.
Coffee catering for everybody
The Coffee-Bike festival season was officially kicked off with the successful engagement at the Southside Festival. It is a best practice example of how diverse the opportunities for the Coffee-Bike are and how many different target groups can be reached with our mobile coffee bar. From teenagers to “best agers,” from rock stars to pop princesses, the Coffee-Bike is a hit. So, it was not surprising that the Coffee-Bike is now already booked for next year Southside Festival. 🙂
