Poperinge is located near the French border, about 150 kilometers from Brussels National airport and 170 from Charleroi airport. From both airports, by making at least two changes, it is possible to reach the city by train. Our advice, once you land at the airport, is to rent a car.

The venue of the Festival, as usual, will be the Maeke Blyde event hall, at Doornstraat 43. Here, you will find a rustic and welcoming place, and a large bar with soft drinks and snacks to satisfy everyone’s needs. The railway station is about 800 meters away. The nearest bus stop is Poperinge Markt, about 350 meters away; lines 24, 51, 60 and 61 pass through here


Admission to the festival is free; you will only pay for what you consume. To participate, a security deposit of €5 will be required which includes the purchase of a commemorative glass. It will be your fantastic souvenir. The drinks are paid in tokens; the latter can be purchased at the checkout at a cost of €2 each. Keep in mind that several drinks cost two or more tokens.

Also available is the STARTER PACK which at a cost of €15 offers 1 glass and 6 tokens.

The festival is open Saturday and Sunday, from 2.30pm to 11pm


Beer, of course, will be the great protagonist. Instead, it will always be the turn of the famous live band MG BROTHERS to entertain the public. with them, on the guitar, there will also be Blue Jerry, historical guitarist of Will Tura.


Poperinge is a beautiful town in Flanders, ideal for relaxing even for a couple of days. Finding a facility here, or in the immediate vicinity, can be an excellent solution. In town, De Zevende Zon is our favorite. For less than 90€ per night you are guaranteed a splendid double room with breakfast included.

On the contrary, if the Festival were only a “hit and run”, Brussels, about 150 kilometers from here, is the best solution for quality and quantity. Find the best offers to sleep in the Belgian capital, from this link.
