This Belgian music festival has an odd-sounding name and an even stranger translation. Perhaps this explains why hoards come to party every year.

Pack for all weather
No one wants to see a repeat of the 2011 storm tragedy so be sure to pack for all weather conditions. Promoters say they have learned their lessons and put increased safety measures in place, but it is still up to the participants to look after their well being.
Ride your bicycle to the event
In this part of the world, bikes are considered one of the main forms of personal transport. The event now caters for cyclists with the addition of free, guarded bike parking facilities for over 10,000 bicycles.
Pukkelpop enjoys its traditions, such as Boiler Party night on the eve of the festival. Festivalgoers arrive and pitch their tents in one of the nearby camping areas before heading over to get in the party mood at this eclectic warm-up session.
Need some downtime?
If you have had enough music for the day, head to the cinema tent which screens a selection of cult movie classics.
Pukkelpop provides free camping facilities
Yep, it’s included in the ticket cost. The camping site opens a day prior to the start of the festival and lies on one side of Kempische Steenweg with the main event grounds located directly on the other.
