Due to the strict access control and visitor registration that the corona measures require, it is unfortunately not possible to buy tickets at the door this year. Make sure to buy your tickets in advance at to be sure of a place!
You can still buy tickets online on the day of the festival itself, also after the festival has started, subject to availability.
You can check in at all locations (‘t Zonnehuis, Credo and Cometa) throughout the evening (from 18.00 – 00.00) for access control. Because the access control will take a lot of time, we would however like to ask you to report on time. The program starts at 19.00, the entrance already opens at 18.00. In the meantime you can get a bite to eat in the Cometa café.
