How to get there?

Travel smart, travel green. Use public transport! Your festival ticket entitles you to a free e-train ticket to and from Rock Werchter. At Leuven station catch the festival bus by De Lijn heading for Haacht (Line 1). The bus takes you to the bus stop in zone A. On Wednesday, only those with a camping ticket to The Hive or The Hive Resort can enjoy this service. From Thursday 7 am until Monday 2 pm, the buses are available for all festivalgoers.

Do you live nearby? Then come to Rock Werchter by bike! Park your bike safely near the Festival Park, free of charge, at one of the the KBC bike stands. You would like to bike to Werchter, but the distance is a bit too large? Choose park & bike! Bring your bicycle in/on the car, park your car at Sporthal Den Dijk (Dijkstraat 1 Wespelaar, 3,5km away from the festival) and continue your journey by bike.

Coming by car? The Hive Resort’s reserved car park in zone A is accessed via the E19 Antwerp - Brussels. From the motorway follow the signs to the car parks. Traffic on this route could be heavy.

Security measures at the entrance

There will be pat-down searches at The Hive, The Hive My Space and The Hive Resort's entrance. Backpacks and luggage will be searched extensively.

CNTRL PARK

CNTRL PARK. For leisure and entertainment. For a drink and a bite. At daytime, CNTRL PARK is all about entertainment. Late night, there’s time for party and cosiness. CNTRL PARK is centrally located (what’s in a name?) inside The Hive and accessible to people staying on The Hive, The Hive My Space or The Hive Resort.​​​​​​​

Keep The Hive Resort clean

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.

Charging point

You can visit the Proximus phone charging stands located at CNTRL PARK to get your hands on the Proximus powerbank.

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. There is a permanent first aid post of the Red Cross at The Hive. The pharmacy in Werchter (Tweebruggenstraat 7) is open during every festival day, from 1 pm to 6 pm.

Do's & Don'ts

Don't:

  • Glass, sharp objects, weapons.
  • Tapping equipment. Drinks are available at the campsites for a reasonable price.
  • Gas burners and installations are forbidden by order of the fire department.
  • Dry ice
  • Generators, they cause extra noise and constitute an additional safety hazard.
  • Fire (torches, candles, cookers, charcoal BBQ, etc) is dangerous, especially with so many tents crowded together.
  • Pets, except for guide dogs.
  • Music equipment making too much noise will be confiscated.
  • Commercial activities: it is strictly forbidden to deal drugs, sell food or drinks, tickets and so on.
  • Flyers: it is forbidden to hand out flyers or any other promotional material.
  • Cars, motorbikes, trailers, caravans, camper vans, etc. They endanger camping safety. Hand trucks (trolleys) aren't allowed either. Motorhomes and campers are only allowed on Camping Mobilhome.

Do:

  • enjoy your stay
  • make friends
  • respect your fellow campers
  • get enough sleep
  • brush your teeth
  • wash your hands
  • shower regularly
  • keep the campsite clean, together with us

Collect your festival bracelet early, on Wednesday.

Campers with a camping ticket for The Hive, The Hive My Space or The Hive Resort can already exchange their combi festival ticket for a combi festival bracelet on Wednesday (until 11pm), at the entrance of their campsite. Very convenient!

Safety on The Hive Resort

The Hive Resort campsite is divided into zones with fire lanes in between. Fire lanes have to be clear at all times. The campsite is surrounded by a service lane. Very convenient for logistics, but also necessary for quick interventions by the emergency services and evacuations.

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 in every comfort zone or at The Hive Resort.

At your service

Our camping staff will be on hand to advise and assist campers. Do not hesitate to talk to these employees if you need help or information.
