INFO

 

GETTING THERE & AWAY

This year, we’ve sold 20% less tickets than in previous years in order to reduce waiting times, and we’ve updated our logistical plan. 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.

Please find a map with approximate walking times below!

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.

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.

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 at the bus stop.

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

Parking tickets are available in our online ticketshop (until July 18th) or at the parking lot on July 21st.

Enter “Noorderlaaik 2, Oostzaan” as your GPS destination. If you are in the surrounding of the festivalterrain, please always follow the instructions of our ground staff and signing.

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.

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.

Leaving the festival?
Like with all large events, please take waiting times of minimum 1 hour into consideration when leaving after the festival.

The Kiss & Ride pick-up point is located outside of Het Twiske.

Leaving the festival?
In order to find each other after the festival, follow the ‘Kiss & Ride’ route.

The Uber pick-up point is located outside of Het Twiske. Please keep in mind that waiting times are increased after the end of the festival.

Leaving the festival?
Follow the ‘Uber’ signs to find your driver quickly at the special Uber pick-up point. The Uber app will point you towards this pick-up point as well.

The taxi pick-up point will be located outside of Het Twiske, at a different location than the Uber pick-up point.

Leaving the festival?
We discourage you to take a taxi, as waiting times are unpredictable.

FESTIVAL INFO

Yes, during the festival you can find the lost & found at the information stand, located near the main stage. You can contact the lost & found after the festival by emailing to info@welcometothefuture.nl. Please describe your lost item in detail.

Based on the weather forecast, we expect it to be sunny and warm tomorrow! Here a few tips from our friends from Celebrate Safe how to best prepare for a hot and sunny festival day…

1. Dress appropriately for the temperature and wear airy clothing. Also, don’t forget that it can cool down at night!
2. Take enough water with you on your journey to the festival.
Seek the shade regularly to chill and cool down.
3. Remember to eat something salty like fries or potato chips to maintain your sodium level.
4. Apply enough sunscreen every few hours; you can bring your own to the festival in a new, sealed bottle.
5. Don’t forget to drink enough water! However, please bear in mind that drinking a lot of water in combination with the use of MDMA or XTC can be dangerous; don’t drink more than 1 or 2 glasses of water per hour.
6. Because of the long period of dryness, please be aware of the increased risk of fire in Het Twiske. Don’t just throw your cigarette buds away, please make sure they are fully extinguished.
7. Feeling unwell? Don’t continue dancing, but visit our friends at the First Aid for advice or a quiet place to cool down.

We can’t wait to see you all tomorrow!
