Please note: if you leave the parking lot and would like to re-enter, you will have to pay again. Don't leave any valuables in your car. Although we have supervisors on our parkings, the organization cannot be held responsible for any damages or theft at the parkings.

There is a Kiss & Ride parking where you can be dropped off and picked up. Please follow the signs and directions to the Kiss & Ride area, which is located near exit 22 'Beerse' (E34).

Kiss & Ride is only permitted at the official Kiss & Ride parking; do not drop off or pick up people elsewhere to avoid traffic jams. Police will control on this matter.

Yes we like! Follow the bike signs to De Lilse Bergen (Gierle) and park your bike for free near the main entrance of Sunrise Festival. Lock up your bike and follow the signs to Sunrise Festival. We are not responsible for damages or the loss of your bike so park it decently and lock it up well.

Sunrise = completely cashless! No more queuing at the cash register and immediately scoring a drink at the bar after arrival? You can!

Register your ticket online and top up by loading 'SUNS' (Sunrise's currency) into your cashless account before you arrive at the festival.

Of course you can also add extra SUNS to your wristband at a Cashless Top Up Point at the festival or by scanning the QR tag on your wristband and top up extra SUNS via Payconiq.

Super simple to start partying right away!

Do you have any SUNS left after the festival?

No problem: after the festival you can request a refund via the website. For this service 2 SUNS are charged to cover administration and transaction costs.

Unfortunately, you cannot withdraw cash at Sunrise Festival either, as Sunrise is completely cashless.
