Frequently Asked Questions

Why are Camping Regular tickets currently not available yet?

Traditionally, a number of campsites are run by local individuals or associations. A number of these campsites have to disappear in 2017, because they are classified as VEN area. Flemish law states that certain activities are not allowed in VEN areas. The campsite directors were informed of this a couple of years back. In close collaboration with the municipality of Rotselaar, we are looking into a solution to guarantee plenty of camping space. A number of options are being taken into consideration. Once everything is sorted out, we are announcing more information and Camping Regular tickets are available for purchase.

Working at Rock Werchter

Rock Werchter does not call on individual volunteers. The festival has always drawn on a broad spectrum of clubs and associations from the area in and around Werchter. With great passion and enthusiasm the members of these clubs get involved in whatever has to be done on and around the festival ground. Their aim is to contribute to the success of the festival and to raise funds for their organisation, because all partner clubs and associations earn a fee from the festival organizers.

Can I take photos and film at Rock Werchter?

Professional sound, film, video and photo equipment is not allowed. Small cameras and smartphones are welcome in the Festival Park.

Ticket in someone else’s name

Is the name on your festival ticket not your own? Not to worry! If it was purchased through the official channels your ticket is valid.

If the original buyer of the ticket is not with you when you enter the festival please make sure the ticket, the print quality and the barcode (in particular) are in great condition. Print your ticket on a white sheet of paper and make sure the other side is unused. Dirty, wet or laminated tickets and badly printed or unclear barcodes cannot be read into the scanners. In that case, we can only give a copy of the ticket to the original ticket buyer.

Do not buy your tickets from auction websites or second hand ticket websites. Tickets offered for extortionate prices will be blacklisted and invalidated, meaning they won't get you into the festival. More info here.

Can I take my (young) children to the festival?

There is no minimum age for Rock Werchter so all are welcome! But everyone at the festival must have a festival ticket, children included. There are no discounts for children.

We do not recommend that (young) children be brought to the festival grounds, because we do not provide facilities for children and a music festival is not the ideal environment for children.

Can I set up a market or food stand at Rock Werchter?

The stand room available in the Festival Park is allocated exclusively to our sponsors and media partners. A small number of stands can be set up on our festival market. Frans Bevers Catering is our cateringpartner. Contact us via info@rockwerchter.be for conditions and availability.

Can I promote my product or event on and/or around the festival site?

On and around the festival site, including on the campsites and on the public roads, it is strictly prohibited to hand out or display flyers, posters or other promotional materials. Sponsors and media partners - if they have agreed this with the organizers - get visibility at the Festival Park.
