W-Fest is committed to alcohol and drug prevention. We rely on the advice of the Flemish Expertise Center for Alcohol and other Drugs (VAD). At the main entrance of the festival site, a special “amnesty bin” is provided where you can voluntarily deposit your drugs, without further consequences. To prevent drug and alcohol abuse outside the festival grounds, the festival-goer is not allowed to freely leave and re-enter the grounds. Within the festival site, a sufficient supply of food & beverage, a spacious cloakroom, a cigarette stand… is provided to spend the festival day in comfort. This arrangement does not apply to VIPs and campers.

Kids are more then welcome at the festival. What’s more : they get in for free when under the age of 16.

Each ticket has a unique barcode that is only valid once. A ticket only gives access to the person mentioned by name on the ticket. The person who made the purchase is responsible for the use of the ticket. Never buy a ticket from a stranger, the organization provides no guarantee regarding the validity of the ticket in case of resale. Any ticket is subject to the general terms and conditions as mentioned on www.w-festival.com. In case of violation of these terms and conditions, the ticket will be declared invalid. The ticket can under no circumstances be refunded. A valid proof of identity of the buyer must always be presented upon request. Any ticket is only valid for the event, date and time mentioned on the ticket. Wave To Synth declines all responsibility in case of loss, theft or misuse of tickets. Only in case of cancellation or relocation of the event to which your ticket gives access to, can you exchange your ticket for an equivalent ticket for an event organized by Wave To Synth. In case of relocation or postponement of an event, the specific advantages and conditions attached to a ticket may vary. It is strictly forbidden to take photographs, film or make sound recordings during performances with professional material.
