Free shuttles linking the festival and the railway station of Yverdon-les-Bains will be at your disposal during the whole event.

Camping & Couchsurfing

Located 1 km from the festival site, the “Camping Yverdon Plage” at Avenue des Iris is the nearest campsite away.

If you would rather sleep under a roof, why not try couchsurfing ?

It’s so much easier to take the wheel after a good night’s sleep.
