  • Washable and returnable dishes

    NEW : INTRODUCING WASHABLE AND RETURNABLE DISHES!  

    Paléo is introducing a system of washable and returnable dishes in order to considerably reduce the volume of waste and single-use!    

    Multiple return points have been installed on the festival grounds and in the Quartier Libre, in the immediate vicinity of the food stands.   

    It's easy! The dish return points take back your plates, bowls, cups, pitchers and all of your waste!  Cutlery is not returnable.  

    The price of deposits is CHF 2.00 for cups, plates and bowls and CHF 5.00 for pitchers. Your deposits are returned to your bank account via your card (Maestro, V Pay, Postcard, Visa, Mastercard, etc.), via your smartphone (Apple Pay, Google Pay) or a Paléo prepaid card (available in the "Paléo Banks").  

    You can of course bring your own containers to the Festival site!   

    This way, you are helping to make the Festival even more welcoming and sustainable. We thank you already!

  • Young audiences

    Exemption from payment

    Paléo is often a family thing. This is why free admission is offered to children under the age of 12. Children and teenagers between the age of 12 to 18 benefit from the student price. Children under compulsory school leaving age are not admitted to the Festival site after 22:00 in accordance with local laws and police regulations, unless accompanied by a parent or under the supervision of an adult. Moreover, access to the campsite will be refused to young people under the age of 16 who are not accompanied by a parent staying in the campsite.

    “Baby Bar” stand 

    Located in the passage between the Quartier Latin and the Entre-deux-Monde, the stand Esprit Sage-femme "Bar à Bébés" (Midwife Spirit “Baby Bar”) is available to parents and their young children (0 to 4 years). For example, they will be able to: 

    • Breast-feed or express their milk in a calm and peaceful setting with disposable equipment at hand. All milk is refrigerated until 01:00 in the morning. 
    • Use the nappy-changing table and receive free nappies/diapers (sizes mini to maxi), as well as organic care products. 
    • Borrow a baby carrier against a deposit or a pushchair. 

    In addition, the stall includes a protected area in order to provide an emergency obstetrics service, should the need arise. 

    NB. We would remind you that, in spite of the availability of this service, an open-air festival is not a suitable environment for very young children and would strongly recommend parents not to bring them to the event. 

    Day nursery "La Luciole" (until 8 years old)

    Located on the banks of the river, away from large crowds, the "La Luciole" daycare centre offers free games and entertainment for children up to 8 years old. Parents can leave their children there for up to three hours, as soon as they are clean. On the program: slides, treasure hunt, juggling, boom, crafts and many other activities.

A colourful place where relaxation, encounters and open-mindedness are actively encouraged, for adults and children alike!

    La Plage (12 to 18 years old)

    Sand, parasols, trees and deckchairs, it's hard to believe you're at Paleo! And yet, nestling right next to the HES-SO area is La Plage, a convivial and welcoming space dedicated to teenagers from 12 to 18 years old. Entertainment and games are all on the programme, alongside a bar that features non-alcoholic drinks at low prices. Drink without ruining yourself, that's the winning formula for basking in the sunshine under the coconut trees!
