Transportation and Parking

Own transport

By car

Lokeren is easily accessible via the E17, exit 12, Dendermondebaan/Zelebaan or N70.
Parking is possible in industrial zone E17/1.

Our shuttle is located in the Dijkstraat and will take you to the festival and back for only 3 euros.

The shuttle-buses start their rides an hour and a half before the first performance on the main stage and pick you up one last time at 2h30 at night.

Keep your bus-shuttleticket as it’s also good for a FREE CHEESEBURGER* at Mc Donalds Lokeren! (*action subject to change)

Bicycle & motorcycle

If you do not live too far away, we advise you to take your bike or motorbike to the city centre. Bicycle parks can be found at the station and in the Sportlaan (both unguarded). Motorbike parking is provided in the Sportlaan. The Sportlaan is in the immediate vicinity of the Lokerse Feesten terrain.

By train

Are you going to the Lokerse Feesten by train? Then you make the right choice!
Take the train to the Lokerse Feesten and get off at Lokeren station. From there you can continue on foot to the festival. The Lokerse Feesten grounds are a 5-minute walk from the station.
For festival-goers who use the campsite there is a shuttle bus between the campsite and Lokeren station, both in the evening and at night.
With which ticket?

Before boarding the train you must of course be in possession of a valid SNCB ticket (no ticket – no train).
Buy one before you leave for the Lokerse Feesten for your outward and return journey.

NMBS offers you very interesting travel formulas: Go Pass 10, Go Pass 1 and Go Unlimited* for festival-goers younger than 26 years and Rail Pass for older people. For shorter distances, the extended Weekend ticket can be cheaper with a 50% discount. Of course you must take into account the conditions of use and validity.
On the SNCB website (Tickets Youngmanaged Search Tickets & Subscriptions) you can use a price module to make your most advantageous choice from the various products in a very simple way.
Plan your trip

With the handy journey planner you can easily find the timetables of all trains on www.nmbs.be or on the SNCB app which you download for free from the App Store / Google Play Store / Windows Store.
