INFO — here's what you need to know

  • TICKETS

    Tickets can be bought 24/7 online through our preferred partner Eventix or – as long as we’re not sold out – at the entrance on our festival days. Besides purchasing your ticket, please make sure to download it to your mobile telephone. Printing your ticket is therefore not necessary, saving trees is!

    If you’ve lost your ticket, didn’t receive the pdf by mail or have any other problem, please contact Eventix. www.eventix.com

    Purchased EARLY BIRD TICKETS or a GIFTCARD? You can now redeem your voucher for the DAY / WKND of your choice! Use the code top left of your pdf ticket and enter it in our ticket shop as a discount code. 

    When buying a ticket to WECANDANCE you automatically agree to our general terms and conditions. Tickets cannot be cancelled nor exchanged for another festival day. However, tickets don’t have to be registered in your name, enabling you to buy tickets for yourself and all of your friends.

  • TIMETABLE

    Available here and on all our digital platforms by the end of July. Head to the line-up to get in the mood.

  • COVID-19

    Make sure to read our latest COVID-19 event updates a few weeks in advance of the event. We’ll give you any needed information and updates here on this page and on our digital channels. The health and safety of our dancers and staff is our top priority. We ensure organising an event that complies with the COVID-19 regulations, restrictions and/or entry requirements in force at the time of our festival. Please check back for any further updates.

  • CASHLESS

    The use of our own currency – W’s – ensures quicker payments and faster queueing at our bar and food courts so you can all concentrate on dancing rather than standing in line! Festival-goers can pre-load their wristbands with W’s online or top them up during the festival at the booth.

  • RESPECT

    We don’t do rules at WECANDANCE, we have expectations. As a festival we expect everyone entering our grounds to respect one another and act supportive. 

    Everyone at WECANDANCE joins us to have the time of their life, enjoying wondrous DJ’s, mouthwatering food, dancing to the sunset and staring at endless sea views. As an organisation of a festival, we do what we do to offer every one of our dancers an experience of freedom. A feeling of relief, bliss and being themselves is irreversibly linked to feeling safe, supported and respected. Festival grounds are there to generate magical memories, nothing more or less. No one has the right to act in a way that influences that feeling of joy for another guest. In the past, for too many, music festivals have become an occasion they’d rather forget and that breaks our hearts. Anyone who crosses a line to anyone else will be handed over to the police for investigation. We don’t do sorry. We ask you to think before you act. And think right. It’s 2022. Time’s up.

    We’re a temporary venue to be rediscovered every year so we understand that victims of harassment or discrimination may not know where to report a crime or access help. All our staff at the first-aid tent (EHBO) and our own employees (at the bar, cleaning up or wandering around enjoying their accomplishment) are trained to act when someone demands help. Feel safe. Feel free. To ask anything you need. This year we’re adding a safe spaces booth where you can ask for information about rights, helplines and how to keep yourself and others safe. All incidents can be reported at EHBO, the WCD staff, bar or safe space booth. Make sure to inform our staff before intervening. 

    Have fun, but act responsibly. Entering our festival grounds means you agree to all of the things above. Thanks for being a part of our community, we love you!

    Need more information, help or have anything to add? Please contact info@wecandance.be!

  • GREEN

    Dear dancers, we are a festival on. the. beach. Everything you throw on the ground might end up in the ocean or worse, around an animals neck. We suppose we don’t need to explain more? Please Google ‘what is plastic doing to turtles’ if you need an eye-opener. We don’t do single-use plastics, no straws or waste ending up in the ocean. Garbage cans are placed all over our beach for you to use (and recycle). Be kind and respect the beach. For those of you who smoke; first it’s bad for your health, second never ever dump your cigarette butts in the sand. Ashtrays are provided at the entrance and on the venue grounds. We want to show respect to the beach and our clean-up team by helping them as much as possible, please do too. Would be fun if they would have more time to dance than clean-up one day! All other terms can be found in our General Agreement and Conditions. 

  • PHOTO / VIDEO
