Brakrock can be described as a summer punk rock festival with a low ecological impact.
It’s not that difficult to make a difference.
In everything we do, we try to use reusable or recycled materials from table, to fork…that’s why we use reusable cool drink cups, food trays with a deposit system!
You will discover a clean festival because of the food tray deposit system and reusable drinking cups with holder. The reusable drinking cups with holder are totally yours. Use them at all our shows & future festival edition.
Is this everything you do? Nope! This is just the tip of the melting iceberg. There is many more. But eating healthy, recycling, ban of disposable plastic is a very good starting point.
You need to buy your first drinking cup. (1 token) with hanger. Give the empty drinking cup to the bar staff in order to get your drink. Please be aware that you need to buy a new one in case that you’ve lost yours. This cup is not redeemable for money.
You need to give two extra tokens as deposit for the food tray. Please bring the food tray back to the washing point and you’ll get your tokens back.
Be green and come to Brakrock by bike. The festival area is located nearby a bicycle road (F1)that runs from Antwerp to Brussels. Place you bike in the free guarded bicycle parking in front of the railway station of Duffel.
The railway station of Duffel is the gateway to the festival and camping. Directions over HERE.
So it’s a no-brainer to conclude that railing to the festival gateway is super easy. There’s a direct train connection from Brussels and Antwerp every half hour. Last train on Friday to Antwerp or Mechelen/Brussels rails at 0:33am. Last train on Saturday to Antwerp and Mechelen/Brussels rails at 0:28am. Plan your journey HERE
There’s also a bus stop nearby the railway station. Plan your journey HERE
Or carpool and use one of the many free public car parks in the area:
We like to treat you well: big choice in organic food.
Most of the dishes are vegetarian (some are vegan and meat).
A wide range of fair trade/ bio drinks (even beer)
Did you know organic food/ farming features practices that cycle resources, promote ecological balance, and conserve biodiversity. Organic foods typically are not processed using irradiation, industrial solvents, or synthetic food additives… so you’re tasting/enjoying the real thing here.
Cigarette filters have a significant environmental impact, and not in a good way. This non – biodegradable waste from single use plastics can release harmful chemicals in the environment. Products like cigarettes, smokeless tobacco and e-cigarettes also add to the build-up of plastic pollution. Cigarette filters contain microplastics and make up the second-highest form of plastic pollution worldwide. There is also no evidence that filters have any proven health benefits.More info over HERE
We cannot forbid to smoke cigarettes with filter but please ask for your free portable ashtray at the fest. / camping entrance.
And never throw your cigarette on the ground, but always use an ashtray instead. That means the world Thank you!!!
Don’t bring your own drinks. Drinking water wrapped in non –disposable plastic is ok.
No it will be cheaper. Free drinking water is also available in the sanitation area.
Any questions about our approach? Catch our ecoteam running around the festival area! They’ll cleaning like freaks.
