Arriving early
The EJC starts on Saturday 30 July at 1pm. You are only allowed on site early if you’re registered as a volunteer for building up the festival. Please note: wild camping is forbidden in the Netherlands and you risk being fined if you do so. Looking for a place to stay before the EJC? There is a campsite nearby: Campsite Waterhout.

During the EJC 2016 waste is separated for recycling. We will have separate bins for glass, paper and residual waste. Do you want to help us collect garbage during the festival? Great! Please send a message to:

Animals are not allowed anywhere on the festival site. This rule will be applied very strictly! There are several pet boarding places in Almere, such as Dierenpension Almere.

Alcohol & Drugs
All drugs are illegal in the Netherlands, but there is a tolerance policy for soft drugs (cannabis). Watch this video for more information on the Dutch drugs policy:

Alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks are for sale in the ‘gezellige’ EJC bar! It is prohibited for anyone under 18 to buy and consume alcohol.

It is illegal in the Netherlands to drink alcohol, be drunk and smoke cannabis in public (outside of the festival site).

In The Netherlands it is forbidden to smoke in public buildings, such as gyms, café’s, restaurants and toilets. It is also forbidden to smoke in the tents.

Cancelling tickets
It is not possible to cancel your ticket. However, it is possible to transfer your ticket to somebody else by emailing

Photography and filming
