If you travel by train to the Lokerse Feesten festival then you make the right choice!

Visitors of the Lokerse Feesten Festival take the train to Lokeren and continue their journey to the festival on foot. The Lokerse Feesten festival grounds are only a 5-minute walk away from the train station.

Which travel formula?

Before taking the train, you must naturally be in possession of a valid SNCB/NMBS transport ticket (no ticket – no train). Do buy a ticket for your outward and homeward journey before your departure to the Lokerse Feesten.

SNCB/NMBS proposes you very interesting travel formulas: Go Pass 10, Go Pass 1 and Go Unlimited* for festivalgoers younger than 26 years old and Rail Pass as from 26. For short distances the Weekend Ticket with extended validity* with 50% off** may be more favorable. Naturally, conditions of use and validity have to be respected.

On the SNCB internet site (section Travel tickets \ Which is the right ticket for me?) you can make your choice among the different products in a very simple way with a price module.

* The details of these 2 transport titles will be announced later on.

Moreover, with the handy journey planner you can find the timetable of all trains on or on the SNCB/NMBS app you can dowload for free from the App Store / Google Play Store / Windows Store
