To improve air quality, Ghent’s inner city (the area within the ring road R40) is a low-emission zone. Only vehicles that meet the conditions for admission are allowed into this zone unless you buy a temporary permission. Do you want to know whether your car can enter the LEZ?

Showers are available, but do bring a towel.

Food and drinks

We will be providing delicious, healthy meals as we did for the previous editions. Sign up each day for lunch and/or an evening meal at very attractive prices. The festival bar is open all day.

Out of the Toolbox is a cashless festival (payment possible by card or Payconiq).

Overnight stays

The festival lasts all day, so why not stay overnight in Ghent?
There are many hotels, youth hostels and B&Bs that offer a warm welcome.
