The organizers reserve the right of entry.

What’s for dinner?

Many food stalls will be at your disposal offering sweet and savory foods which will be sure to please everyone.


The “Parking de la plage” is 600m away from the festival but has limited space. We strongly recommend you take public transport, carpool, make your way over on a tricycle or even a wild Camel’s back.


Unfortunately, the site of our festival is mal adapted to wheelchair access. Feel free to contact us if needs be so we can guarantee you a stress-free access!


A free shuttle will be at your disposal all though the event from the train station to the festival.

Camping & Couchsurfing

The “camping des Iris” is the closest camping ground and only 1km away.

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

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

Entrance & Exit

All items deemed dangerous will be banned by security. Food and Drinks will also be confiscated at the entrance.

Exits are definitive.

Concert cancellation

The cancellation of a concert does not permit your reimbursement. 


A prevention booth will be on site.

Alcohol & drugs

The law forbids sales of alcohol to anyone under the age of 18, bartenders may ask for identification upon your order.

The law also forbids consumption, possession and sale of illegal drugs. These laws are obviously applicable and applied at our festival. 

Sound level

You may not only have one ear, but you only have one sense of hearing. Sound levels may reach 100 dB(A). Ear plugs can be found for free at all bars. A hearing recovery zone will be available.


In case of rain, bring a rain jacket as umbrellas will be confiscated at the entrances. Don’t be too discouraged though, two of our stages are indoors.
