Presenting partners





Het festivalterrein gaat om 18:00 uur open voor het publiek. Dan begint ook meteen de eerst DJ te draaien dus kom op tijd. Eten en drinken is dan ook verkrijgbaar. Om 01:00 houdt het feestje op, tenminste gaat de muziek uit. We houden rekening met de buurt en houden ons dus ook netjes aan deze tijd. Je hebt nog wel even de tijd om je muntjes terug te wisselen, een plasje te doen of ‘one for the road’ te halen, maar luister wel naar het beveiligingspersoneel. Eruit is eruit.
