Those lucky enough to have secured a Saturday Premium ticket for Decibel outdoor have a number of advantages over a normal ticket:
– Separate entrance
– Free locker per two people
– An exclusive Decibel gadget
– Access to the Premium decks at the Decibel main stage & Pussy lounge
– A ride of your choice on one of the attractions
There are two main entrances to the festival site. The North (Noord) entrance is indicated by the colour Red and the South (Zuid) entrance is indicated by the colour Yellow. Be sure to remember where you park your car or where you are dropped off and which entrance you come in through. Make sure that you also leave via this exit to get to the right parking space or pick-up point.
The minimum age is 18 years. In cases of doubt, a visitor may be asked for identification. Always take a valid identity card with you so that you are not at risk of being refused for this reason. A driving licence, passport or Dutch identity card are all valid proof of identity.
An exclusive Decibel outdoor merchandise line has also been designed this year. Come and take a look at one of the five merchandise stands for a nice souvenir from Decibel outdoor! You can find the stand at the main stage. This is in the middle of the site at the Pussy lounge area near The Forest and by the South entrance. There are also lots of other b2s items to buy. You will also be able to find the items online in the b2s merchandise store after the event.
Decibel CDs & autograph session
A Decibel outdoor 3-piece CD has also been put together this year according to tradition. None other than Frequencerz, Luna & Miss K8 have mixed this year’s album.

Several cash registers are located at the entrance and across the festival site. You can also pay by card at each payment point. Unfortunately, it is not possible to withdraw extra cash. The coins are valid for both the bars and the food courts throughout the whole weekend.
Food areas at the festival site
There are various food courts at the festival site. b2s has ensured that there will be a wide range of food. Think sandwiches, wraps, healthy salads, toasties, döner kebabs, stir fry, spring rolls, various snacks, pancakes, fries, smoothies, fresh fruit, (protein) shakes, pizza, pasta and much more. Besides, there will be a few food trucks with BBQ, burgers, sausage rolls, satay, pasta and mini pancakes. Make sure you eat well throughout the day and that you get enough salt.
Have a go on the Ferris wheel, the flying swing ride or take a bungee jump with your best friend from a height of 60 metres! This way you’ll have a fantastic view of the site and enjoy an unforgettable experience. Slightly less high but no less fun is the Rodeo Unicorn. Whoever stays on this longest can also win a great prize! Beside going crazy at the 14 harder style areas you, you can also capture your memories at the photo bus or relax in the chill-zone.
Free drinking water
You can buy a bottle of water at all the bars. As usual for b2s, there are sufficient tap water points spread across the site where you can top up your bottle or cup for free. Free water is also available at the first aid point.
There are sufficient toilets on-site during Decibel outdoor. There are four large groups of toilets on the site and they are free so make sure you use them. There is also a disabled toilet in each group. This festival is organised in a natural environment so respect this. Action will be taken against public urination.
You will also find fresh-up points at the toilets. Do you want to check your hair or make up during the day? You can also make use of deodorant, hair spray, gel, sun cream, etc.
Meeting points North & South (Noord & Zuid)
There are two meeting points at the festival site: one at the North and the other at the South. This is where you can, for example, arrange to meet your friends if you lose each other.
b2s conforms wth the local policy of the Tilburg police. This is a ‘zero tolerance’ policy. This means that no form of mind-altering drugs (soft and/or hard drugs) is allowed. Cannabis or hashish will therefore not be allowed inside. Frisk searches will be carefully carried out under police supervision.
We celebrate safely during Decibel outdoor – the festival. You can go to the Celebrate Safe stand if you have any questions about alcohol and/or drugs. The employees of Unity are happy to give you tips and explanations if you feel unwell but go straight to the first aid point with serious issues. They are there to help you where necessary. Check the Celebrate Safe website for more information.

If you organise your own bus trip to Decibel outdoor you can register your bus here. Three days before the event you will then receive all the information that the driver needs to get to the event and park if necessary. The buses follow the signs for ‘Touringcars’ on arrival. A special parking area has been set up for this purpose. Even if the bus only comes to drop off and pick up passengers, it should follow the signs for ‘Touringcars’. Make sure the bus is back before 22.00 to avoid unnecessary congestion. Buses that have not been registered in advance must pay €35 on the spot.

Tilburg is very easy to reach by train. NS will be using extra long trains to transport the visitors to Decibel outdoor. Consult NS before leaving for the exact departure and arrival times.
The shuttle bus to Beekse Bergen will wait for you at Tilburg Central Station. From 10.00 on Saturday onwards, there will be continuous shuttle buses to and from the festival site. The last shuttle bus runs at 01.00. You can purchase a Saturday bus transfer ticket before the event via the b2s ticketshop.
