Follow the instructions of our safety staff at all times. Let the people back at home know that you’re okay with an SMS in case of an unusual situation 

Sexual harassment:

Sexual violence or sexual harassment is not tolerated at Soenda festival in any way. In case you feel harassed or threatened: please report this to the organization.

You can find more general info at www.centrumsexueelgeweld.nl about medical and psychological advice and about how to press charges.

Alcohol and drugs use:

It’s well known that there are risks to the use of alcohol and/or drugs. But be extra careful when using alcohol and drugs at a temperature above 20 degrees Celsius. Alcohol and drugs increase the body temperature. So, if you’re dancing for a long period and drink too little the risk of overheating increases. Make sure to drink plenty of water but also not too much: 1 or 2 glasses per hour maximum. If you drink too much water in a short period there’s also the risk of water poisoning. If someone dies when using alcohol/drugs this is usually caused by overheating or water poisoning due to alcohol/drugs. So be extra careful and make sure to cool yourself down every now and then. Look out for each other and don’t leave each other’s side. Make sure to test your drugs before you visit the festival, you can’t do this at the festival itself. Visit www.drugsenuitgaan.nl and www.unity.nl for health risks and more information.

Hearing protection:

Soenda festival supports the ‘I Love My Ears’ I campaign because we find it important that you will be able to enjoy good music not just now but also in 20 years from now. You should take good care of your ears because of this. You can find a number of useful and handy tips at www.ilovemyears.nl on how to protect your ears as good as possible whilst still enjoying music. There are earplugs available at all the bars at Soenda festival.

Medical aid:

Visit the first aid post if you or one of your friends is not feeling well. Don’t be scared to tell them about your use of alcohol or drugs: the better you inform them about the situation, the better they are able to help you. The medical confidentiality is applicable here as well which means we won’t press charges, so feel free to share.

After the party?

Forced and unsafe sex are more common when people are under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs. Respect one another and check out www.sense.info/soas for more information on unsafe sex. Next to this, the use of alcohol and drugs can result in concentration impairment and a longer response time which causes you to be a danger to yourself and other road users. Make sure to stop on time and adjust your transportation to this. And don’t forget to drink water or isotone drinks to replenish your fluids before you go to sleep.

How does it work if I’ve bought a bus ticket online?

In case you’ve bought a bus ticket online, you can show this at the bus, you can use a printed ticket or your mobile. After your ticket is scanned and valid you will receive a hardcopy ticket for the bus. You can use this ticket to enter the bus.

Can I buy a parking ticket at the parking site?

Yes, you can always buy a parking ticket at the parking site. Parking tickets can be bought at the cash register in front of the parking site for €17,50. We advise you to buy a ticket online in advance to accommodate a fast flow. This is even cheaper as well. PLEASE NOTE: it’s only possible to pay with PIN.

Are there any charging stations at the parking area?

Unfortunately, it is not possible to charge electric vehicles at our parking area.
