And of course we don’t forget the fire component of our convention, we offer a firesafety instruction, and a firstburner workshop to everybody.
Which leads directly to the next topic, our firespace!
From the early dusk til deep in the night we will dance together with the flames and enjoy the music from our DJs and 4 point sound system. We have a large supply of oil, a professional dipping station, and tool stands for your equipment.
Of course we keep an eye on each other by taking over a safety shift, making sure our tools are in a good state, and taking a break from playing if you decide to make your chai Irish.
The firespace is open all 3 nights, ready to be filled with movement and flames!
Just as everybody is invited to join in and participate, it’s equally important to remember that we’re counting on the self-reliance of our guests. In order to keep the costs as low as possible we’ve opted not to provide food on the convention ourselves.
Bring with you what you’ll need for the 4 days of flow & fire, or connect with your neighbors and drive to the shop if you run out of your favorite snacks. Additionally, during the day the kiosk at the Airport Museum is open, they sell things like ice-cream, fries, etc.
Drinks & Water
There is a connection with well water on the premises. The water has been tested, but is not approved as drinking water for small children.
So bring drinking water and any other drinks with you if necessary – we will not be selling drinks ourselves. The aforementioned kiosk will sell some beverages as well.
There is plenty of woodland and meadow, as well as paved areas for tents and camping vehicles.
You can have a look at our pictures from the mini test con we at the location did in 2022, just keep in mind that this was just with 25 people and thus shows a lot of space that we can fill with life.
There are free toilets, and showers on the premises.
We know mans best friends are awesome, but a fire convention is probably not the best and most comfortable place for them…
So, we can only allow them in absolute emergency cases, which must be discussed with us beforehand.
They are not allowed to roam the convention grounds alone, and at night they must be well lit and always on a leash (this also goes for your neighbors bush cat, you uncles guide monkey or your favorite jackass).

Information about the payment modalities
We are currently (March 2023) in the middle of founding our association FlowArts e.V. However, as this process will still take a few weeks, ticket sales and payment processing for this year’s convention will be handled by Sven Beyer, just like at last year’s Test Convention.
Your payment will therefore go to “Sven Beyer – Coaching & Consulting Services”, who will then transfer the money directly to the association.
