The organisation of City of Dance festival wishes you a smashing party weekend at the City of Dance camping!

Have you ever experienced a multi-day festival? Chances are big that you have bought a tent specially for the festival. Did you take the tent back home afterwards to use it again? Maybe, but maybe not. Each year 1 out of 4 visitors leave their festival tent behind at various festival campsites in The Netherlands.

This causes a lot of waste, and this is obviously not very good for the environment: all tents go after one use to the dump. Therefore, we have devised the KarTent; a disposable festival tent made entirely of cardboard. The cardboard is very easy to recycle; after the festival the cardboard tent can directly be recycled at the paper industry, so they can be reused for toilet paper, textbooks, shoe boxes or other things to make!

Of course the tent is waterproof.

Unlike other tents, this tent will stays nice and dark in the morning, so that you can sleep in the morning without being disturbed by the morning light or the heat of the sun on your tent.

Even more? Oh yeah! If you order a tent, we will bring it to the festival! This means that you no longer need to worry about carrying your tent! The only thing, you have to think is your toothbrush. (Theoretically, you also need other things ..) The tent can accommodate two people, and of course there is room for all your stuff!

These tents can be ordered through the ticket page: www.cityofdancefestival.nl/tickets/

At the festival you can pay with tokens. You can buy these with cash and at some checkout’s with ATM.

With the exception of (semi) professional equipment it is allowed to carry a digital camera. Opinion of the organization: take as many photos as you can, fun for later! Selfie sticks are not permitted. Do you want press accreditation, then you should just send an email to info@you-dance.nl

Scour your attic and search for crazy suits, top hats and suspenders. Pull that unique suit on that will give you a hilarious day. Make it as crazy as you can, because along with jugglers, stilt walkers, the best DJs, artists and all the other party animals you will form the ideal setting for City of Dance festival, in which nothing, absolutely nothing is too crazy.

Like every other year, of course we don’t want you to starve, so besides the best DJ’s that you want to hear, you also have a very versatile choice of culinary offerings. You can also chill out at various lounge spots, so you can enjoy your food and the beautiful view of the festival. Next to the food court, there will be a terrace with a special cocktail bar.

There will be access for wheelchairs at the festival ground. A big part of the paths are wooden decks. If you want more information, contact us at info@you-dance.nl

If you have any questions, issues surrounding and accreditations you can contact the organization at office@you-dance.nl

The festival takes place in any weather. There are many tents and indoor places available and of course there are rain ponchos available.

At the entrances you will find an information stand and lockers. You can easily store your belongings. So you can fully enjoy your day!
