Availability may change. Please check the page regularly for updates.

Be cautious regarding resale 

Don't blindly order your tickets through the first website that pops up on your search engine. Chances are you are visiting an auctioning website or a ticket reseller. Not only will tickets offered through these websites be more expensive; you also risk being denied access to the concert. Have you bought a ticket through one of these websites? First, try getting in touch with the website. Sometimes, you'll be refunded the price difference. If not, consider legal action in civil court. Always report the resale to the Economic Inspectorate via meldpunt.belgie.be. Read more via FOD Economie.

In collaboration with Inter, Live Nation puts in a great effort to make the concert accessible to the disabled. So we have paid a lot of attention to the accessibility of the concert site and its surroundings:

  • There is an alternative, accessible and less crowded entrance for people with a disability. One person is allowed to accompany him/her through this entrance.
  • Near the Main Stage, we provide a viewing platform for wheelchair users, people with crutches... with a grandstand view of the performing artists. Specific tickets are required for people using the platform near the Main Stage.
  • Adapted toilets are situated in locations all over the concert site.
  • Specific parking spaces are provided. To use the ADD parking, you'll need to purchase a parking ticket in advance. It's no longer possible to pay the amount in cash on the spot. Capacity is limited - please request your reserved parking space in advance through the form below. Inter will keep you posted on the next steps.
  • If you wish to bring a folding chair because of your disability or another health issue, you'll also need a pass to bring this. Please ask Inter for this pass in advance.
  • During the concert, you can always call on ADD staff for assistance, free of charge. This may include: toilet, moving and eating assistance, etc. Do not hesitate to talk to an ADD assistant, whenever you require assistance. You can find them on the concert site (at the viewing platforms).
  • For people with hearing aids, we are once again setting up audio frequency induction loops. By switching your hearing aid to the “T” position, you will enjoy much better sound quality and much less ambient noise. Close to the wheelchair platform, we provide an audio frequency induction loop. For more information, turn to the licensed carers who are offering assistance at the wheelchair stage.

We Care A Lot 

We want our festivals and concerts to be a safe place where everyone feels welcome and comfortable. A place where no one is exposed to discrimination, criticism or intimidation. Everyone must be able to be themselves. Everyone is welcome in the Festivalpark regardless of sex, gender, orientation, culture, religion, ethnicity or disability. We are committed to making attendance at our festivals and concerts healthy and safe for everyone.

Our employees have been briefed so that they are even more alert and can respond appropriately where required. We are assisted by specialists in various areas, and concertgoers can speak to someone in confidence if they wish. The We Care A Lot hotline is staffed 24/7 during the concert. Send a WhatsApp message to +32 (0)478 51 15 79 for direct access to rapid help.

Think of your ears

Have fun but drink responsibly

Practice “zebra drinking”: alternate an alcoholic drink with water (or other non-alcoholic drinks). 

Alcoholic beverages may not be served, offered, or sold to individuals under the age of 16. This is stipulated by the law and is respected in Werchter. If you are older than 16, know that you may not buy alcoholic drinks for or offer them to individuals under 16. For drinks containing more than 1.2% distilled alcohol (e.g., cocktails, gin and tonic, etc.), the limit is 18 years.

Are you traveling by car or motorcycle? If you drink, you don't drive. Carpooling with friends? Decide in advance who will be the designated driver.
