What: Tips for Rock Werchter 2020 / Where: Werchter, België / When: 2-5 july 2020 / Genre: Everything!
Are you also going to Rock Werchter this year? Great choice! Because yes, it sounds amazing: 4 days, 5 stages, the biggest headliners and the best fries (especially the fries of course). On this blog we listed all the tips and tricks for this amazing festival. Maximal is of course leaving to Rock Werchter again this year. You can get bus and festivaltickets here.
#Tip 1: Packing tips
Of course it varies per campsite, but on Rock Werchter it can sometimes take 20 minutes before you finally reach your tent. We all know it: the road to the campsites can be a crazy trip at festivals. Unpaved soil, groups of people and extreme heat: not the best conditions to drag your camping gear around. Often enough, those damn well-prepared people with a wagon or folding trailer overtake you. For once, try to be this person and take one of your own with you. It may start to feel like unnecessary effort at the beginning, but believe me. You are going to be happy with this decision.
#Tip 2: Check the schedule in advance
Rock Werchter is known as the festival with one of the best line-ups in Belgium. Of course it’s logical to mainly look at the headliners, but Rock Werchter also gives a stage to new and upcoming talent. Try to check out the unknown names at the line-up! The trick here is to plan carefully: it is difficult to determine where you want to go, because there is so much choice. It is useful to check the block schedule well in advance. This way you are always prepared and up to date on your favorite artists 🙂

#Tip 3: Essentials
Rock Werchter takes place on a large meadow, and this is more than fantastic under ideal conditions. However, when the weather is warmer, the subsoil quickly becomes dry and dry, resulting Sahara- desert sandstorm. The result: your whole outfit will be covered under sand and dirt. Rainy weather? Then the festival site quickly turns into a large mud pool. Our tip: bring a water-repellent festival rug. This is really just a luxury word for garbage bag, something that everyone is guaranteed to always have at home. Easy!

#Tip 4: Garbage bags!
Do we want more or fewer garbage bags?! We know the answer: definitely more. Handy for literally every situation that you find yourself in. Use them to throw in all empty cans of beer, stretch them over your backpack to keep it dry, or use it as a festival rug (to protect your outfit). You could even turn it into a fancy raincoat with a little creativity. How cool is that ?! The options are endless.
#Tip 5: Book your bus in advance
Rock Werchter can be easily reached by car, and there are plenty of parking spaces. The disadvantage of this is that you may be dropped on one that is considerably removed from the festival site. If this happens, you always have to wait in long lines for a shuttle bus that will take you to and from the festival. It is therefore advisable to book all your bus travel in advance. Travel with Maximal! We have boarding locations throughout the Netherlands. Check out bus and festival tickets for Rock Werchter 2019 here.
#Tip 6: The right camping choices
We are now at the 6th and final tip for this amazing festival. It may sound obvious, but especially at Rock Werchter it is really important that you make the right choices when it comes to the campsite. Just like most festivals, every campsite here has a completely different atmosphere. Does the party stop for you when the birds start whistling (or the afternoon after)? Go to the Hive. Are you more the peace-loving type, and is your beauty sleep an essential for you? Then choose the B campsite. If, after general programming, you would prefer to jump on your airbed immediately, then the C-campsites are the most suitable for you. Choose wisely 😉
Choosing the right camping: really important!
