We work with a deposit system on all cups, cans, and bottles we hand out at the bar during all our events. In order to recycle everything we hand out, we want to collect as much as possible. This way, we keep the event clean together and we make sure there is no trash on the ground.
How does this work? You will receive a recycle chip at the entrance for free. Pay attention: this chip isn’t a coin you can use to pay for beverages. It has no value and can only be used for the deposit.
- First round? Hand in your recycle chip during your order at the bar;
- Next round? Take your empty cup/bottle to the bar and exchange it when you order your new drink;
- Lost your cup? Then you will have to pay 0,5 coin for a new cup/bottle;
- Done? Take your empty cup/bottle to the bar and exchange it for a recycle chip.
This way we will keep Free Festival clean together!

Protect your ears
Hear the Music, Protect your Ears
Please take care of your ears! With music above 87 dB it is smart to use earplugs with a special music filter. With these earplugs you can hear the music perfectly, still have a conversation with your friends and most important of all, you prevent hearing damage and any ringing after the event. In addition, Alpine earplugs are super comfortable. During Free Festival Alpine earplugs will be available. Alpine earplugs are reusable, so you can protect your ears not only at Free Festival but at other events as well. Life sounds better with Music.
Are you okay?
Unwanted sexual behaviour or harrasment is not okay and is also not tolerated at concerts, festivals and clubs. If you think that someone is being sexually harrased, ask the question: are you okay? This way we can make sure everyone has a good time at Free Festival! For more info about these situations you can check benjeoke.nl.
