We cannot wait to see you again! To avoid queues and save some time you can plan your trip, pre-order your bus, parking & locker tickets with a discount.

Travel responsible

Together, we can protect our planet by traveling responsibly.

Do you live a little too far to travel by bike? The easiest and most sustainable way to get to Summer Festival is to take the train to Tilburg and hop on our shuttle bus. Avoid taxis and take the shuttle bus to the festival.

By Bike
The festival can easily be reached by bike, it's only a 30-minute bike ride from Tilburg train station. We have bike parking close to both Festival entrances (North and South).

Navigation address:
Beekse Bergen 1 (entrance North) or Westrik 2 (entrance South), Hilvarenbeek.
Follow the signs 'Bike parking' when you see them.

NOTE: don't forget to remove your bike before Monday 12:00. On Monday all the fences will be removed and all remaining obstructing bikes will be removed as well. Locks will get cut and costs are not refunded to you.
By Train
The easiest and most used option is to take the train to Tilburg Station. From there, you take a shuttle bus (20-minute drive) or a bike (30-minute drive) to the festival. Please be aware there might be a queue during peak hours, especially after the festival closes.

There are construction works between Utrecht and Geldermalsen and Utrecht and Den Bosch, so avoid that route.
