XO Special

The doors will open exclusively for disabled people on Thursday. Visitors will be able to enjoy our finest music, catering, drinks and side activities. More info? Contact [email protected]

Do not print, go digital

It’s better to show the ticket on your phone. This is good for the environment and just as easy.

Stash your trash

We like to keep our festival clean, but we need your help for that! So trash? Throw it in the trash cans. Just a little effort, but it will give a great result.

Love your ears

Free earplugs will be available at the Safe ‘N’ Sound stand.

Visitor transport

To reduce the impact on the environment we ask our visitors to use public transport. For visitors in the area we advise to come by bike.

Vacuüm toilets

This type of toilet has the same comfort as a classic flush toilet, without using the same amount of water! By using suction to empty the toilet after you use it, a vacuum toilet requires more than 90% less water than a classic flush toilet. Also, the toilets don’t need to be emptied every now and then, so no more closed off sections and long waiting lines!

Energy

We’re using the fixed grid (100% green energy). Only where necessary we’re using aggregates but with a smart power plan to use as little as possible fuel.

Reducing the single use plastics

The festival is not going to contribute to this plastic mess we know today. For this reason, we’ll reduce the use of single-use plastics as much as possible by banning plastic straws and the prevention of sampling. However, it’s quite impossible to organize a big festival without waste. This waste is being recycled as much as possible. For the catering we’re only using compostable disposables and cutlery because these reduce the environmental impact.
