SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

Veiligheid van festivalgangers is onze grootste prioriteit. Wij overleggen op regelmatige basis met lokale overheden, politie- en hulpdiensten om het festival zo veilig mogelijk te laten verlopen zonder het comfort van de bezoekers in het gedrang te brengen. Een veiligheidsplan is uitgewerkt in samenwerking met stad Waregem.

Rugzakken en tassen worden toegelaten op het festivalterrein maar zullen streng gecontroleerd worden. We vragen bezoekers deze spontaan te openen en de inhoud aan de medewerkers te tonen. Alvorens het festivalterrein te betreden zal elke festivalganger gefouilleerd worden. Er zijn duidelijke richtlijnen opgesteld met betrekking tot zaken die niet toegelaten worden. De extra maatregelen zijn noodzakelijk en mogen vooral de pret niet drukken. Alles wordt in het werk gesteld om de bijkomende controles zo vlot mogelijk te laten verlopen. Bij voorbaat danken wij alle bezoekers voor hun begrip en spontane medewerking bij de controles.
