FAQs

BY PLANE: From Brussels Airport, take a train to Gare Du Nord, followed by a tram to Esplanade.  Alternatively, you can catch a bus from the airport to Strombeek-Bever Nieuwelaan. The festival site is a short walk from both.

BY TRAIN: From Gare Du Midi, take the subway to Heysel. The stop is a short walk from the park. From the Central station, walk to nearby tram stop De Brouckere and take the tram up to Esplanade.

Children under 10 are allowed to attend for free with an adult; they must fill out an identification card with their name and their parents' phone number at the festival gate. Bear in mind that whilst children are allowed, there is no nursery and it's recommended that pushchairs aren't brought on site.
