Getting to Werchter Music Festival
To be exact, the festival is located on Haachtsesteenweg in Werchter, Belgium.
A huge parking will be available next to the festival. It’ll cost you an extra 20€ from Wednesday 26 June or 15€ from Thursday 27 June to leave your car there. And you’ll probably have to wait for some time to get in and out of the parking as a LOT of people choose that option.
To make your life easier, the festival organizers have made extensive agreements with Belgian public transportation to provide transportation to and from the festival grounds for all festival-goers.
Each festival ticket can be used to redeem free train tickets or bus tickets from Leuven or Aarschot to the festival site and back.
As for transferring details from Leuven to the festival, organizers have made the process very simple. You can find all the information on their website providing complete times for buses to the festival and back, maps of the festival site, directions to obtain your free train ticket, and so much more.
If you’re choosing this easy way, locating a parking spot near Leuven’s train station is probably your top priority. Don’t worry though, parking in Leuven is a breeze with the Seety app which lets you easily see each and every street’s parking regulations and best places to park.
