How to get there?

If you're arriving by bike, you can park your cicycle nearby, free of charge. Read more on bicycle parking here.

If you're travelling using public transport, take the free De Lijn festival shuttle bus from the Leuven train station to Haacht. This bus will take you close to The Hive. On Wednesday, only holders of a The Hive camping ticket can use this service. From Thursday, the festival buses will be open to all festivalgoers. Read more here.

Those arriving by car are advised to take the E19 Brussels-Antwerp. From the highway, follow the signposting to The Hive Resort's parksite.

Security measures at the entrance

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

CNTRL PRK

Previously know as The Hive Entertainment zone, now CNTRL PRK! For leisure and entertainment. For a drink and a bite. For fun and games. At daytime, CNTRL PRK is all about entertainment. Late night, there’s time for party and cosiness. CNTRL PRK is centrally located (what’s in a name?) inside The Hive. Only accessible to people staying on The Hive 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 PRK 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.

Collect your festival bracelet early, on Wednesday.

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 at the festival park, at The Hive 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.
