We’ve built a special bike parking close to the event, address: Gosschalklaan 12. Follow the signs and park your bike there. Bikes parked at other inconvenient places will be removed due to safety regulations.
Don’t forget to take your bike home: the bike-parking will be removed shortly after the event and bikes that are still there will be cut loose.
The address of the nearest parking is:
Van Bleiswijkstraat 8, Amsterdam
You can get a parking ticket online for €15,- (see the button below and scroll down to the right event) or buy it at a cashier inside the Gashouder (exchange your online e-ticket at the locker desk at the event). This way you'll avoid paying the full amount of €2,- per 35 minutes at the ticket machines in the garage.
When entering the garage, please take the right entrance cause the left entrance seems to have some technical difficulties.
Yes, it is possible to use Uber in Amsterdam and we have a partnership with the Uber service to travel to Awakenings with €15 off your first ride!

3. Order an Uber. Select your destination adres in the Uber app, check your pickup location and order your Uber. Within a few minutes your driver arrives. Leaving Awakenings? The Uber app will show you automatically where to go for the pick up location where you can find your driver.
New Year's Eve Ride Guide
- With so many people out celebrating this New Year’s Eve, we’re anticipating that fares may be higher around 10pm and around 1am due to increased demand.
Before you request an Uber, you’ll see the total cost of your ride so there are no unwelcome surprises heading into the New Year. Fares fluctuate based on demand, so if it’s out of your price range, check back later for lower fares.
- Make sure you get into the right car with the right driver. Double check your driver’s car model and license plate in the app before you hop in your ride.
- Call the driver via the app when you can't find him for a clear meeting point.
- Going Dutch: during the ride you can share the costs with your party crew directly in the Uber app trough the option 'Fare split'.
There will be a special taxi-stand near the Gashouder, just follow the signs to get to there. Remember there is a chance fewer taxis are available with New Year. And please beware of the illegal "taxi drivers" (called snorders). It's illegal to get in the taxi with them, fines for using them can run very high.
If you want to use Uber, please beware they will stand close to the car park across the street and are not allowed on the taxi-stand at the Gashouder.
Plan your travel with 9292 and be aware that during holidays travelling schedules of public transport may differ from their normal schedules. Check out more info about trains/trams/busses here
Hard drugs are not allowed. Hash/weed is allowed with a maximum of 5 grams (no pre-made joints). Check out Unity for more drugs info and watch the nice info video (French,Italian, Germany and Spanish subtitles available). Awakenings, EMS (first aid) and Unity are partners of the "Celebrate Safe" campaign. Be aware you're party is over if security will find any drugs on you.More about Celebrate Safe
Yes, there will be lockers from Lockerbox available at the Gashouder. With the 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 €6,- (or big locker €8,-) 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 the button below 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 Lockerbox desk.
We have 8 selling units for tokens (you can pay with cash or cards), 2 bars, 1 cocktail bar, 2 toilet-groups, food/ice, cigarettes, smoking areas and of course first aid.
You will get a free floor plan (including timetable) at the entrance.
We have a special entrance for disabled guests and at every toilet group there are toilets available.
Make sure you bring an official declaration from a doctor. In case of doubt, our First Aid (EMS) will check your medication. Want to know more about EMS?
