Welcome to the Village


Our programmers are on a roll! After announcing epic rockers De Staat last friday, we welcome seven more awesome additions to the line up of Welcome to The Village 2020! Amongst those: Oh Sees, Kevin Morby and Cate Le Bon!

Fuck, yes! Bouncing Pikachu’s, a sweatshop full of Mona Lisas and a peptalk from your Witch Doctor – De Staat headlines WTTV20!

Welcome to the Village


How can I pay?

At the festival, we do not have any cash or tokens. You can only pay with your debit- or credit card. Super easy, fast and safe, but most of all it’s saves us the use of a lot of plastic. Winning!

Would you rather pay with cash? You can also get a temporary and anonymous card for €2,- which you can top up. And no worries, you can also the card together with your friends. Easy! So go and buy your friends a drink. Yes please.

Where can I find what’s what?

We’ll publish our festival site map over here. So you can click there.

Information point + lost & found
At the Information Point we’ll be able to address most of your practical questions and issues. This is also where Lost & Found and the lockers are located. Super practical!

There are large and small lockers for rent, located just after the festival entrance (the campsite has no lockers). You can activate your locker with a code which is valid for one day (we’ll show you how it works on-site as well). Please make sure you retrieve all your items when you leave the festival terrain at the end of the day, otherwise we’ll be doing that for you in the morning. The code will be reset anyway, so it won’t be possible to use the same locker-code combination for the duration of the weekend.

First Aid
There’s two First Aid stands at the festival grounds and one at the campsite. The First Aid stand also has a lactation room available for use. Check the festival map for more information.

Phone charging station
There’s a few phone charging stations dotted around the festival terrain and the campsite. During charging, you need to stay close though. Just try to see this waiting time as a mini-vacation, then it will feel like no time at all. We will let you know more about this as soon as we do. The festival does not assume responsibility for any damages or other unpleasantries.

As in previous years, our De Hoeve store sells Welcome to The Village sweaters, caps and bodysuits. With new designs!

Where does the festival take place?

Welcome to The Village takes place in De Groene Ster: a beautiful area, right outside Leeuwarden.

Here’s a Google Maps-link for you.

For your navigation: enter Simmerkrite 1, Leeuwarden
Public transport: take the bus and exit at Ouddeel – it’s just a five minute walk from there to our entry.


Where can I buy my ticket(s)?

You can buy your day-, weekend- and campsite tickets at our ticketshop.

You can also contact us via social media in case of any questions or comments though. You’ll find us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. We’ll then get back to you as soon as possible.

So where’s this campsite at?

This year the campsite is located closer to the festival terrain, as you can see here.  As the campsite is managed by us now, prices for a campsite ticket have gone up a bit.


Are you parking a campervan? Awesomeness! Campervans are still directed to campsite De Kleine Wielen, as there are no facilities for campervans at the festival campsite. Tickets are available here.

Are you a fan of an optimal and restful night’s sleep, .i.e. that’s nice and all, a festival campsite, but I’d rather sleep in peace and quiet? The Quiet Campsite also remains at campsite De Kleine Wielen. Tickets are available here.

I’d rather sleep at home, or at least in an actual bed. How about it?

This year we have again managed to get an excellent deal with the WTC Hotel. From just EUR 59.50 a night you’ll be sleeping like a (minor) rockstar, you’ll be able to enjoy a delicious breakfast and sleep in. This deal includes shuttle service to and from the festival terrain by the way!

Sounds good? Then place your reservation via the WTC Hotel website. They’ll also be able to help you out with any queries you might have.
