Of course! We are doing the best we can to make the area as reachable and accessible as possible, but unfortunately we can not guarantee that every bit of the wooded terrain can be accessed easily by people with disabilities or people in wheelchairs. Please send an email to email@example.com, so we can give you special accreditation and instructions.
Pay attention: Best Kept Secret does not offer special tickets or discounts for visitors with disabilities or their carers. Everybody pays the same price.
Do you use a wheelchair/ have walking difficulties and are you coming by car? Please let us know through firstname.lastname@example.org. We will do our best to make sure you get a parking place near the entrance, at the Boutique Village parking spot. We have a limited number of parking places here, so do not wait to long asking for this. From the Boutique Village parking spot it is still 1 kilometer to the festival grounds, but this way it is way less crowdy and you can park close to the Boutique Village where you can stay for the night (please see under: ‘Can I stay at the camping?’)
Set up your navigation to Kommerstraat 1, Hilvarenbeek and turn your navigation off when you see the yellow Best Kept Secret signs. Follow the boards ‘Boutique Village/miva’. Please note: did you make a reservation for an accommodation at the Safari Resort or Holiday Park from Beekse Bergen? Then you have to take an other route to your accommodation. All information about this can be found here.
Are you traveling by train? All shuttle busses between the festival grounds and Tilburg Central station are accessible with regular wheelchairs. Here you can find more about transport.
Our two biggest stages (ONE and TWO) have wheelchair platforms, which are exclusively meant for wheelchair users. Every wheelchair user can take one carer with them at the wheelchair platform: this does not have to be the same person every time of course. If the platform gets to crowdy, the festival staff may ask the carers to leave the platform if possible.
Across the festival terrain lies a broad paved road that is easily accessible for visitors in wheelchairs. The biggest part of the camping grounds are also accessible via paved roads. But keep in mind: Beekse Bergen is a natural environment, which means that there will be paths to the stages via sand and woods.
It is not possible to take folding chairs or stools to the festivalgrounds. In every corner of the festival terrain, you can find plenty of places to sit or rest and relax. Scootmobiles are not allowed at the festival terrain because of safety.
Do you have doubts about the accessibility in your circumstances? Please let us know by mailing us at email@example.com, so we can give you advice.
Yes, the Boutique Village is best equipped. There’s a parking spot nearby (see above under: ‘How do I get to the festival grounds?’) and there are toilet blocks with facilities for people with disabilities. As a person with disabilities, you can stay at the Boutique Village without paying extra. You can also book one of our luxury tents here. When you want to use this option, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can take this into account (like placing the tent next to a paved road instead of in the middle of a field).
It is also possible to stay at the regular camping if so desired. In the fixed toilet blocks you can find facilities for visitors with disabilities. Do you want to stay at the regular camping? Send an email to email@example.com, because staying at a regular camping means you also need to park at a regular parking spot and you take the regular entrance.
Beekse Bergen offers several fixed accommodations that are suitable for visitors with a disability here. Please contact via 088-9000360; Beekse Bergen can tell you which accommodations are wheelchair friendly.
Next to the First Aid post, and at the toilet blocks between stage ONE and TWO, you can find special toilets for disabled persons.
It is (legally) allowed to take your assistance dog to the festivalgrounds, but we want to stress that the festival is not an animal friendly environment because of the crowds, loud music and light effects. This accords to the advice of KNGF Geleidehonden: ‘We are not in favour of taking assistance dogs to festivals, concerts and other places with crowds and loud noises. The dog can’t do its job and looses its guiding function.’
First of all: with more than fifty unique caterers, we make sure that vegan/vegetarian visitors and people allergic to gluten can eat varied meals.
If you need special nutrition or medicine and you want to take this to the festival grounds, you will need a doctor’s statement. Please send us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org before the festival. We will make sure that the security staff knows why you carry pills with you.
