Festival campsites will not be opened, as Werchter Boutique is a one-day festival. Wild camping is not allowed on police order. Check booking.com for hotels, B&B and other options close to the festival.
Did you have a ticket to Werchter Boutique 2020? Then you were able to have your order converted into Ticketmaster credit until the end of August 2021. That credit can be spent on festivals taking place at Festivalpark Werchter up to, and including, 31 August 2023.
If you haven't converted your order into credit, your order has automatically been transferred on to TW Classic 2022, which took place on 19 June 2022.
The Belgian Minister for Economic and Consumer Affairs has implemented measures for the entire live music industry. This measure protects you as a consumer and also reduces the impact of the current crisis for the organisers. Read more on this in Dutch or French.

Werchter Boutique does not work with individual volunteers. The festival has been working with a broad spectre of associations from the wide vicinity of Werchter. With great zeal and enormous amounts of enthusiasm, members of these associations get involved with whatever has to be done on and around the festival ground. Their goal: to contribute to the success of the festival and, on top of that, to gather funds for their association, since all collaborating associations are remunerated by the festival organizers.
Werchter Boutique does not have a minimum age and so everyone is welcome! But everyone at the festival must be in possession of a festival ticket, children included. There is no reduction for children.
We do not recommend that (young) children be brought to the festival grounds as we believe a music festival is not the ideal environment for children. There are no facilities for children.
Together with midwife Hanne, Werchter Boutique is making an extra effort to offer breastfeeding mothers some more comfort in the Festival Park. If you are breastfeeding and would like to pump your milk on the festival site, you can do so in a special tent. The Milk Factory is located near North West Walls.
In The Milk Factory tent you'll find all the necessary facilities to pump discreetly, to clean your pump afterwards and to safely store your material. The pumped milk can be stored in the fridge of the pump bar until the end of the festival day. Bring your own: pump, bags, cooling elements, bottles, etc.
The safety and health of concert and festival goers, artists and their crew, employees and neighbouring residents is always our highest priority. We have a robust safety policy. We organise additional and intensive meetings with the local and federal police and the local and provincial authorities. More info will be given closer to the festival.
Festivals take their toll on the environment. This much we know. For many years now we have made efforts to run our Werchter festivals with greater sustainability in mind. In the 2006/2007 season, when Yourope, the association of European festivals, launched their Green & Clean guidelines for greener festivals, Rock Werchter was among the first to claim the label. Greener enterprise is a must. Greener festivals are within the realms of possibility. We do our level best in the areas of water treatment, waste recycling and mobility. We go all out for green energy, and we've reduced our dependence on fossil fuels year on year. With every year, our festivals are getting greener.
The stand room available in the Festival Park is allocated exclusively to our sponsors and media partners. If you wish to set up a food stand at the festival, get in touch with our catering partner, Bevers & Bevers Catering.
On and around the festival site, including on the campsites and on the public roads, it is strictly prohibited to hand out or display flyers, posters or other promotional materials. Sponsors and media partners - if they have agreed this with the organizers - get visibility at the festival park.
