Camping bracelet

In exchange for a valid camping ticket and upon presentation of a valid festival ticket, you can check in to the campsite. You will receive a camping bracelet showing which campsite you are staying on. This bracelet does not grant access to any of the other campsites.

Tip: do you wish to camp with friends? Be sure to decide on the campsite of your choice in advance!

Clean camping

In order to keep the campsites as clean as possible, each camper will receive bin bags on arrival. The idea is to leave the (full) bags in the dedicated area when you leave.

Packing your tent and taking it back home with you is a piece of cake. We count on your common (and green) sense to go for a greener Werchter together.

(*) About gazebos (‘party tents’): only gazebos with a maximal size of 3 metres by 3 metres are allowed. Gazebos have to be set up to cover at least half of your tent. Gazebos cannot be set up next to each other. A maximum of one gazebo is allowed in between multiple tents. Any tents/gazebos not pitched according to the rules will be removed. Please follow The Hive campsite staff’s directions. May we ask to securely set up your gazebo, taking into account its wind sensitivity?

First aid

The Red Cross and the ambulance service from Leuven are permanently present. Need first aid? Call 112 or call for help through the App 112. Never hesitate to ask a (camping) crew member for help. The pharmacy in Werchter (Tweebruggenstraat 7) is open during every festival day, from 1 pm to 6 pm.

Safety at the campsite

Every campsite is divided into zones with fire lanes between them. Tents must be set up on the proper pitches. Please follow the campsite staff's instructions. Tents in the fire lane will be removed by the campsite staff.

Questions and liability

Contact the camping manager on the spot.

Rock Werchter’s campsites - except for The Hive and The Hive Resort - are run by local associations, not by the festival’s organizers. The latter cannot be held responsible for any abuse on campsites. Complaints should be lodged with the campsite supervisor. Of course, problems may be pointed out to the local authorities of Haacht or Rotselaar and to the festival organizers as well. All camping-related matters are co-ordinated by the local councils of Haacht and Rotselaar. They have drawn up the rules with regard to pricing, opening hours, number of toilets, wrist bands, lighting, firebreaks, cleaning...

Avoid theft

A good piece of advice: leave your valuables at home. And whatever you do, don’t leave them in your tent unsupervised. None of the organizing parties (campsite staff, festival organizer, local authorities) can be held responsible for possible theft. Should you decide to take valuables along, you can always store them in the lockers at the Festival Park.
