We have some interesting festival benefits.

When ordering 40 tickets at once, you'll get 4 extra tickets for free. And it gets even better: for every extra 10 tickets, you'll get another free ticket. (so 50 bought tickets = 5 free extra tickets, 60 bought tickets = 6 free extra tickets and so on until you're out of buses to drive)

Did you know we provide FREE bus parking and that the administration cost is reduced to €0,50 per ticket?

The FREE bus parking is situated at the Katwilgweg, 2050 Antwerp. ATTENTION: Exit 6 on the R1 will be closed on Saturday September 3rd. Please use Exit 16 Kruibeke on the E17 to reach the Katwilgweg. This is the only way to reach the bus parking!
