How do I get to the Gashouder by car?

Will there be lockers available at the Gashouder?

Yes, there are lockers from Lockerbox available at the Gashouder. With the new electronic lockers from Lockerbox you will not receive a key, but a code to open it. Advantage: no more returning the key and getting back your deposit (no deposit –paying upfront either).

How does it work?
For €7,- (or big locker €9,-) you’ll get a voucher with your locker number and a secret code. Type in your secret code at your locker and turn the lock. Make sure that no one is watching over your shoulder when you’re typing in your code! Keep your voucher (if you throw it away/lose it, there is a possibility someone else can get access to your personal belongings). Put your belongings safely in the locker and close it (turn the lock). You can open and close the locker as often as you want to.  Reserve your locker now via this button and scroll down to the right event.

Advice: save your number and code on your phone or app/text it to a friend. 

You can buy your locker ticket online before the event. The e-ticket can be scanned at the Gashouder and this will avoid waiting at the Lockerdesk.

Note: the locker code is only valid for 1 event and all lockers will be reprogrammed and emptied between consecutive events.
