    Metal Town

    If you’re going to have a few after the last band has left the stage but you’d still like to catch a few hours of comfortable sleep, then Metal Town is definitely the ticket! You can either spend the night in a festihut or you can book a pitch for your motorhome, caravan or tent. Metal Town is located at just 1km from the festival arena and is easy to reach by festival shuttle.

    If you’re not spending the night in Metal Town you’re more than welcome to pitch your tent at the festival campsite situated next to the Metal Plaza. The price for your festival ticket includes campsite access so there’s no extra charge. Here all info on the campsite.

    Arrival and departure:
    Metal Town opens its doors at 2pm on Thursday June 18th so please don’t get there on Wednesday. Camping outside Metal Town until opening time will not be tolerated!

    Access does require a voucher that’s included in the confirmation mail you will receive for your reservation. Access to the festival arena and campsite is not included! New arrivals are required to check in at the reception desk where you will be handed your village access pass. At the reception desk you can also collect your festihut key and breakfast vouchers and the staff will happily answer your enquiries.

    • Check-in: Thursday: 02pm – 02am / Friday, Saturday and Sunday: 08am – 02am.
