The festival is easily reachable by car, bike or walking. Public transport is possible too, but as there is no trainstation in Bree, you will have train to Genk, Neerpelt or Leopoldsburg, and then use the bus lines of "De Lijn" (explained below).
If you live at cycling distance then your bike is the best option. Limburg is the most bike-friendly province of Belgium. The festival location touches one of the famous bicycle route networks of Limburg. At the entrance there is a guarded bicycle parking where you can park your bike for free.
If you want to come by car, try to carpool. That's better for the environment and it saves you money you can spend extra on the festival. Use the Afro-Latino carpool planner if you have a free seat in your car, of if you need a ride.
Before you drive, choose a designated driver (called Bob in Belgium) who will stay sober. For cars there is a guarded parking area, for a fee.
At all times follow the instructions of the car park staff!
