As soon as capacity normalizes entrance will be allowed to everyone with a valid ticket!

The Lokerse Feesten put in a great effort to make the festival accessible to the disabled. So we have paid a lot of attention to the accessibility of the festival grounds and the surroundings:

  • People with wheelchairs will find parking spaces closer to the festival entrance. Only available if requested beforehand through The blue parking card for the disabled is not sufficient.  Other disabled people can use our shuttle buses.
  • We have provided viewing platforms for wheelchair users, people with crutches… with a grandstand view of the performing artists.
  • We have accessible toilets.
  • During the festival, you can always call on ADL staff for assistance, free of charge. They will assist you with practical things like escorting you to the toilet, helping you move around at the festival, buying food, …

You will find the ADL staff in the vicinity of the viewing platform. If you wish to use the aforementioned services please contact the assistance team through

Please keep in mind the following practical arrangements:

  • Bringing your own seat is not allowed.
    Medically prescribed seats are exceptionally allowed, but only on the platform and upon showing the medical certificate. Address the security at the entrance and they will call us to let you in.
  • One person is allowed to accompany you on the platform. On quiet nights we might make an exception.
  • Every year more bands and more people come to the Lokerse Feesten. On very busy nights the platform can become too crowded. In that case we will ask the accompanying friend to leave the platform. Wheelchair users and their carer are given priority on the platform so also less-abled people could be asked to leave the platform. But luckily this is very exceptional.
