As every year it is not allowed to bring food and drink to Castlefest. We of course won’t make a fuss about a couple of sandwiches and a bottle of water, but big thermos bags filled with food and drink or crates or trays of beer will not be allowed. Other forms of alcohol will also be confiscated. This has to do with the regulations and our catering permit. We won’t be as strict as most pop festivals like Lowlands, but we will have to enforce these rules. We hope you will be understanding.
No, you do not have to pay to park your bike.
Dogs are allowed on the terrain, but are to be kept on a leash.
The paths in the estate grounds are often very accessible for wheel chairs. The stalls are provided with steel planking and there is a disabled toilet. There are no special parking places, but a shuttle bus service is available to drive people in wheel chairs from the car park to the terrain and back again.

The best way to travel is via public transport! You’ll meet new people, you’ll by-pass the traffic jam in front of the parking lot, and you’ll save the environment at that. Therefore, we recommend to use public transportation as much as possible. Below, you will find the best ways to get to the festival terrain. Enjoy your trip and see you at Castlefest!
To get to Lisse by bus, please plan your trip carefully via www.9292.nl or www.arriva.nl.
To reach Castlefest by train, please travel to NS station Hillegom. In front of the station, there will be a shuttle bus to the festival terrain waiting. Return tickets for the shuttle service are €4, to be paid for in cash only. Those of you who will be staying on the festival camping may use one ticket to get to the festival on Thursday, and to return on Sunday. The drivers will endeavour to provide a shuttle-service each 15 minutes; however, due to the expected amount of traffic near the festival terrain, this may not always be possible. We thank you for your understanding. Please plan your journey to NS station Hillegom via www.9292.nl of www.ns.nl.
