AGE RESTRICTIONS

GETTING THERE & AWAY

This year, we’ll be selling 20% less tickets than in previous years in order to reduce waiting times. Please bear in mind that July 21st is the first day of Summer holidays in the North of Holland, so expect more traffic than usual.

On July 21st, we’ll keep you posted on the traffic situation via our festival app. The app can be downloaded on our website a few weeks prior to the event. Our customer service team will be promptly answering any questions the day of the event, so please don’t hesitate to contact us via e-mail or Facebook messenger.

BIKE

Welcome to the Future can best be reached by bike. The bicycle route from Amsterdam Central Station is signed and cycling from Amsterdam will take you around 25 minutes. There’s a giant bicycle parking right next to the festival entrance.

Take the ferry ‘Buiksloterweg’ right behind Amsterdam Central Station. Once across the water, just follow the signs!

Additional ferries will be scheduled on July 21st.

Leaving the festival?

The way back to Amsterdam Central Station will be signed as well.

SHUTTLE BUS – AMSTERDAM SLOTERDIJK

We have teamed up with NS to give you the opportunity to get to Welcome to the Future by train, from all over The Netherlands, for just €29,00 for 2 persons! Find out more at https://bit.ly/2KMr9a9.

Shuttle buses will operate between Amsterdam Sloterdijk Station and Welcome to the Future all day long. The first buses depart at 11:30. After the end of the festival, buses will continue driving to Amsterdam Sloterdijk until the last visitor has left the terrain.

This year, shuttle buses will take a different route than previous years. The route in Het Twiske will therefore be mostly free of other festival traffic, and buses will always be given priority over other traffic.

A return ticket is €8. You can buy your shuttle bus ticket in our online ticketshop (until July 18th) or at the bus stop on July 21st (cash only).

Leaving the festival?

For your return trip back to Sloterdijk, keep in mind that there might be a waiting time of minimum 30 minutes.

All parking lots are located within Het Twiske (no external parking). This year, we have different entry routes to Het Twiske. Depending on the traffic situation, our logistics staff and LED signs will always guide you through the fastest route. In some cases, this might feel like a small detour, but don’t worry, the alternative route will optimize your travel time. Please always follow the instructions of our ground staff.

Welcome to the Future loves good sound, and will be fully equipped with Funktion-One sound systems at all areas.

 

ZERO TOLERANCE

There’s a zero tolerance government policy at festivals in The Netherlands. This means that no hard- or softdrugs are allowed, not even a small amount for own use.

We have a wide range of food types available, including the classic snack menu, burgers, pizza, salads, soups, waffles, sandwiches, fruit, smoothies and a lot more. You can find our full line up here!

On April 20th, we’ve once again teamed up with 10,000HRS for our 8th Welcome to the Future Volunteer Day! Together, we donated hours to social and sustainable projects in the region of our festival home. This year, we’ve organised a very special day including a massive party for children with special needs.

 

CELEBRATE SAFE

Party consciously and safe dear Friends! Like last years, our Celebrate Safe stand is present at our festival. Head over there if you have any questions or need support. They’re here to give open advice and support whenever needed. You’ll find the exact location on the floorplans, which will be handed out at the festival, as well as in our festival app.
