Am I allowed to bring food and drinks to Castlefest?

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.

Do I have to pay for parking my bike at the parking lot?

No, you do not have to pay to park your bike.

Are dogs allowed at Castlefest?

Dogs are allowed on the terrain, but are to be kept on a leash.
