I don’t have the specific options that would be offered yet. But the area has its private easy access, a bar, resting spot, pool, and I suppose restaurants. Though we’ve had no info on that so far.

I will update this topic accordingly when it’s available.


Thank you very much for your response Iko. Much appreciated :slightly_smiling_face:

Private acces gate and direct acces to the festival.
Specific area where you have tables, chairs.
A bar with a bigger choice of drinks.
A big screen where you see the Mainstage set.
A press area (limited acces), but you can see musicians.

Hello everyone! This might be well in advance, but I would appreciate your past experience (and the current info from admins) on transportation from and to Nantes during the festival. Will there be bus shuttles after midnight to the city? Otherwise, walking for around 30 mins from the festival grounds to the train station at 2 am does not seem to be a good option.

Hello !
We’re still awaiting information about the shuttles and their schedules.

However, we do know that regional trains will be circulating at night from Clisson to Nantes. We’ll have more details soon.

Just a fair warning! Be careful with the caution! Make absolute 100% sure you’ve recieved it, as contract holder, BEFORE you leave home on Monday!
And no, I am not going to share a story here, just that it’s a pain in the ass to get it back afterwards.

Hey guys, what’s the story with the secured lockers? Are they going to be available when? I haven’t found the info about it… Sorry if its easy to find :expressionless:

We don’t have any information about the lockers yet. It should be soon. Stay tuned.

Cheers :ok_hand: I’ll keep my eyes on it​:metal:

what you mean with that?

Just like I said. Make sure you have your caution/bond/deposit back as soon as you check out of the Easy Camp! And that you see your money back, either cash or on your Cashless account!
It’s hsrd to get it back afterwards, once you’re back home.

Hello Hellers, any info about the lockers? :expressionless:

Not yet. It should be soon…

you have one Spanish website « plug and lock » for hellfest… i think its a scam…

Depending on the link, it might not be a scam. Hellfest had a partner called Plug and Lock with a Spanish website.
We’re still awaiting confirmation about this year’s service provider.
