Smoking regulations

Starting from ADE we stop selling cigarettes during our Awakenings events.
Due to new Dutch regulations, it is forbidden to smoke inside venues. Therefore we had to take out our indoor smoking area at the Gashouder.
If you still want to smoke, you can go to the designated outdoor smoking area. Thank you for cooperating and avoiding expensive fines.

Note: It is allowed to carry a max of 2 packs of cigarettes per person.
