A Golden Circle ticket will grant you guaranteed access to the zone in front of the stage, during Paul McCartney's performance. During the other concerts, other festivalgoers have access to this zone as well, until max capacity is reached. During Paul McCartney's performance, only festivalgoers with a bracelet granting them access to The Golden Circle, are allowed in this zone.
A limited edition ‘Golden Circle' ticket is available for 150 euro (including service charges and a mobility fee). A regular ticket to Werchter Boutique costs 96 euro (including service charges and a mobility fee). Tickets are available from Proximus Go For Music and Ticketmaster.
All mobility info will be available on this website soon.
In collaboration with Inter, TW Classic puts 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 site and its surroundings:
Please make your request for all necessary facilities before 1 June 2020, through this form.
Don't blindly order your tickets through the first website that pops up on your search engine. Chances are you are visiting an auctioning website or a ticket reseller. Not only will tickets offered through these websites be more expensive; you also risk being denied access to the festival. Have you bought a ticket through one of these websites? First of all, try getting in touch with this website. Sometimes, you'll be refunded the price difference. If not, consider legal action in civil court. Always report the resale to the Economic Inspectorate via meldpunt.belgie.be. Also read more here.
TW Classic does not work with individual volunteers. The festival has been working with a broad spectre of associations from the wide vicinity of Werchter. With great zeal and enormous amounts of enthusiasm, members of these associations get involved with whatever has to be done on and around the festival ground. Their goal: to contribute to the success of the festival and, on top of that, to gather funds for their association, since all collaborating associations are remunerated by the festival organizers.
Festivalgoers wishing to stay the night in Werchter after TW Classic can do so at The Hive My Space. Wild camping is not allowed on police order.
In collaboration with Keolis (formerly known as De Boeck Incoming), we are offering all-in packages (including a ticket for TW Classic + hotel). Discover the options here.
Check booking.com for hotels, B&B and other options close to the festival.
TW Classic does not have a minimum age and so everyone is welcome! But everyone at the festival must be in possession of a festival ticket, children included. There is no reduction for children.
We do not recommend that (young) children be brought to the festival grounds, as we do not provide children’s facilities, and because a music festival is not the ideal environment for children.
Does the name on your festival ticket not match with your own name? Don’t worry too much about this! If the ticket was purchased via the official channels, it’s valid.
If the original buyer of the ticket does not accompany you when you enter the festival, please make sure the condition of the ticket, the printing quality and especially the barcode are impeccable. Print out your ticket on a white sheet of paper, and make sure the other side remains unused. Dirty, wet or laminated tickets and badly printed or unclear barcodes are not readable by the scanners. In that case, we can only give a copy of the ticket to the original ticket buyer.
However, don’t buy your tickets via auction websites or second hand ticket websites. Tickets that are offered for an exuberant amount of money, will be blacklisted and made invalid, which means they don’t grant you access to the festival.
Fortunately the days of hotdogs, hamburgers and fries with mayonnaise are long gone. For quite a while now there has been a far wider range of food available; and the highly varied selection means there’s something for everyone. You can choose from healthy salads, oysters, tasty pasta, Asian cuisine, premium burgers, crusty sandwiches, the first mussels of the season, wraps, stir fries, healthy smoothies, fruit and plenty more besides. There are vegetarian and gluten-free options too. Beer and refreshing drinks are available from drinks stalls scattered all over the festival ground. Specialized stalls offer coffee, milk, fruit juice, wine and cava as well. Drink/food coupons enable you to purchase both food and drink in the festival park.
Good to know: for 1 drinks voucher, you get a 0.5l bottle of Spa Reine water. Always. Because we think it is important that festival goers drink enough water. In hot weather, we actually recommend drinking a lot of water. Drinking water is provided in different ways on the festival grounds. You can freely use the taps with drinking water at the sanitary blocks spread out over the festival grounds.
Important: it is forbidden to give, offer or sell alcoholic drinks to anyone under the age of 16. That's the law. If you are under 16 please respect this law. If you are over 16, please be aware that you are forbidden to buy alcohol for anyone under the age of 16 or to offer them alcoholic drinks. For beverages containing more than 1,2% of distilled alcohol (eg. cocktails, gin-tonic, etc.), this minimum age is 18.
On this page, you'll find the initiatives we took in 2019 to make our festivals more sustainable. We research, we learn. We continue the work. Our festivals will be even greener in the future. An update of our plans for 2020 will follow.
The safety of concert and festival goers, artists and their crew, employees and neighbouring residents is always our highest priority. We have a robust safety policy. We organise additional and intensive meetings with the local and federal police and the local and provincial authorities. A set of measures will be implemented. A list of 'Do's & don'ts' will be on this website closer to the festival.
The well-being of our visitors is very important to us. We are doing our very best to offer a safe, healthy and very enjoyable festival. Our approach is broad. Self-care and care for your friends is essential. Tips, tricks and especially do's can be found in our ‘Feel Good, rock Werchter’ video!
