Brakrock  takes place in an awesome setting, with lots of amazing bands and people…and we like to keep it that way. Each from of discrimination and violence will be strongly condemned. There’s no place for racism, sexism, homophobia, fascism or any other uncool behavior at our festival! But of course you knew that already, didn’t you?

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.

  • 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.
  • Never throw your cigarette on the ground, but always use an ashtray instead. That means the world Thank you!!

  • The railway station of Duffel is the gateway to the festival and camping. Directions over HERE.  So it’s a no-brainer to say 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 .
