All visitors can be subject to a full hand search. They are deemed to cooperate and to open their bags spontaneously in order to show the contents to security and crew members responsible for the search. Small backpacks and handbags (max. 45 cm high) will be allowed on site after search.

We’d like to thank all visitors for understanding and cooperating so we can all enjoy a cosy, unforgettable, but above all safe WECANDANCE 2017!

ECOLOGY

For the past four years, we were always proud to say we had a very clean edition of WECANDANCE. We want to continue this story and keep working with our bespoke WECANDANCE cups with nothing but positive messages.

We’re also keeping the Surfrider Foundation Europe by our side to protect our Belgian waters and coastline for the next generation. They make it possible to donate your used drinking cup at the festival. As the next generation is so important to us, we’ve also designed some WECANDANCE Kids Sweaters that are still for sale in our webshop. For each purchase, a part will be donated to their organisation.
