Location

The party camping is situated on the festival terrain.

The silent camping and camper camping are situated right across the street.

We welcome the world to both the festival and camping! A camping ticket costs €10, and is available for purchase at the festival entrance. These services are in cooperation with't Schoederkloptje, Chiro Handzame and 24 uur van Snaaskerke.

This price includes:

  • Usage of the toilets and showers

Parking & Transit

The car parking costs €5 per car and is located on walking distance from the festival entrance. Upon your entry to the car parking, you will receive a ticket suited for writing down your phone number. We require you to do this before placing the ticket behind your windscreen.

We encourage and advise you to use public transport. The municipalty of Kortemark has a train station and a bus station on a small hike's distance from the festival terrain. You won't be alone when you come with public transport. Follow the crowd!
There will also be shuttle busses provided by the organisation to take you to and from the festival terrain.
If you still prefer to come by car, give the free Carpool.be App a try!

The festival and camping are situated in a quiet environment.
We ask you to:

All kinds of fire are forbidden as a safety measure.

We kindly ask you to come to the camping with the right intentions:
Weapons or any dangerous objects do not belong at the camping or the festival.

All forms of fighting, injustice, racism or vandalism are disrespectful and not allowed.

Although we love animals, we cannot admit them to the festival or camping. Animals that are found will be taken to the shelter where the owner can pick it up later. An exception is made for guide dogs.
