Practical

Do’s & don’ts

Bottles

​Bringing plastic bottles to the festival are allowed, but without cap (!), empty of contents, and with a maximum capacity of 0,5 liters.

Camera’s

Unfortunately, it’s not allowed to bring professional camera gear to the festival (SLR’s with detachable lenses)

Camper/caravans

Unfortunately, there won’t be room available to bring your own caravan or camper to the WAE camping. We tried our best to find a fitting solution for this problem and we’ve checked out all the possibilities. We are still exploring our new venue, during this proces we found out that the capacity of our new camping will not cover enough space to allow the amount of campers requested.

We are sorry for the inconvenience.

Drugs & weed

Yes, this is The Netherlands. No, drugs and weed are not allowed at WE ARE ELECTRIC Weekender. We have a zero tolerancy policy for that.

Entry & wristbands

Weekend visitors will receive a wristband. Multi-day combi tickets are personal and cannot be shared with others during the festival days.

If you’re only going to WAE for one day, you won’t receive a wristband. It is not possible for day-visitors to leave and re-enter the festival.

Food, drinks & glass

Festival: It is not allowed to bring your own food or drinks in any packaging to the festival site. ​Bringing plastic bottles to the festival are allowed, but without cap (!), empty of contents, and with a maximum capacity of 0,5 liters.

Camping: It is permitted to bring 8 liters of beer, wine, water and / or soft drinks once per person. Liquor with an alcoholic percentage of 15% or higher is not permitted. Please note this amount is subject to change. It is not allowed to bring glass to the campsite, so use plastic or carton.

This can be done while retrieving your wristband, after that it is no longer possible. It is also allowed to bring a suitable amount of food. There is a supermarket on the campsite. Food, non-alcoholic drinks, cans of beer and non-food goods are sold at the supermarket.

Gas bottles & BBQ’s

Due to local laws, it isn’t allowed to create open fire and warm up food at the campsite of Velder Woods. This means (disposable) gas bottles, BBQ’s, electrical cooking devices and such are not allowed. We know this sucks, but we have to honor this and can’t make any exceptions.

We have coffee, tea, drinks & warm foods at the campsite supermarket, so you can get a warm breakfast or lunch if you want.

Liquids

It is not allowed to bring your own drinks, deodorant or other liquids to the festival site. Sunscreen is allowed as long as it isn’t in a spray bottle. We have a dedicated stand to provide you with free sunscreen as well!

Medication

Do you use medication?

If you want to bring everyday medicines such as paracetamol/acetaminophen or the anticonception pill, then that’s no problem at all. If you take them with you in the original package and declare this to the security at the entrance of the festival, you’ll be able to take them with you.

If you need to bring more serious meds due to a disease, illness or allergy, you can take them with you upon presentation of a medical certificate. Our security at the entrance of the festival will check & arrange this for you.

Smoking

It is forbidden to smoke sigarets inside the festival tents, this will be strictly controlled. Of course it is allowed to smoke cigarets outside the festival tents.

Water guns

Small waterguns & waterpistols are allowed. Make sure they’re empty ​when entering the festival site.

Water taps

​We have water taps with free drinking water at the toilet units.

Accessibilty

​Both the campsite and the festival are easily accessible, even if you come with a wheelchair! We’ve got plenty of wooden platforms to take you anywhere you want and there is even a dedicated entrance for those who need it. All toilet units include a toilet for handicapped people. Unfortunately, there is no special spot on the campsite for handicapped people, but the campsite includes a hard path so you should get anywhere you want.

Age: 18+

We Are Electric Weekender is an 18+ festival. If your 18th birthday happens to be on the day of the festival, you’re more than welcome. We can’t promise we’ll bring cake.
