Festival Rules

Yes, of course! We only ask that you remain respectful towards others and make sure that the festival will be just as fun for your surroundings as it is for you. Together with our partners Celebrate Safe and Are You Ok? we want to warn you for abuse of alcohol, unsafe sex or drugs and drunk-driving. Take care of yourself and your friends. For more information and to read the 10 pillars to Celebrate Safe, click here.

We will be monitoring these rules during the festival. Any person who breaks the festival rule can be refused entry or will be evicted from the festival grounds. In case of discussion the organisation or one of the partners is always right.

Similar to other festivals, drugs, fireworks, (fire)weapons and dangerous objects (like – but not limited – to sprays cans or CS gas) are not allowed at Best Kept Secret.

Apart from the objects named above, it is also prohibited to bring the following items to the festival grounds: food, glassware, tin cans, hydro bags (seriously?), (folding) chairs, stool, selfie sticks, inflatable objects, umbrellas and parasols. Refillable water bottles such as sports bottles are allowed, disposable plastic bottles are only allowed without the cap. We do love pets, but they are not allowed at the festival. A light bag or small backpack is allowed in. Please take in account that security might check your bag at the festival entrance.

A complete list of all the Terms & Conditions can be found here.

Campsite & Accommodation
Are you staying for the night on the campsite or in one of the permanent accommodations? Check the campsite rules (Dutch only) here. You will be allowed to bring soda drinks and low-alcohol beverages, with a maximum of 4,5 litres, onto the campsite. Gas grills, stoves, fridges, beer kegs and jockey boxes are not allowed on the campsite grounds.

The organisation will seize all prohibited items at the entrance. Illegal substances will be reported and transferred to the police.

The safety of our visitors is is a big priority for us. We are always thinking of ways to protect your safety but need you to do your bit too.

For your own safety and of other festival goers crowd surfing, climbing in trees or scaffoldings, swimming in the lake, starting a fire and smoking in all tents is prohibited.

Public urinating is not allowed and is distasteful for others, smelly and completely unnecessary.

Anyone caught misbehaving will risk their wristbands being taken off and removal from the festival grounds and/or campsite.

Of course! Like previous editions, Best Kept Secret 2020 deserves to be documented. We encourage you to share lots of pictures and videos on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter (BKSfestival, #BKS21). Professional photographic, film and other recording equipment (this includes all cameras with detachable lenses), are not allowed. Digital cameras and camera phones are admissible on the festival grounds.
