Tokens & pin
You can pay for almost everything with tokens at Decibel outdoor. Tokens will be available from Friday afternoon and are valid during the whole weekend. You can pay them with cash as well as PIN or credit card, but there is no possibility to take out extra cash.
Park facilities and activities
We have done everything we can to make you Decibel outdoor experience even better, so expect a lot of extras. On the camping, there are a lot of facilities and activities, and lots of them are opened 24 hours a day; like the Fiësta Bar, cinema and game hall.
Besides, the Central Plaza contains an extensive food court, Camping Store, lockers, info desk and mobile charging point.
As you know, the festival terrain will be open on all three days this year. But as soon as the festival is over, the party on the camping continues. Stamp out your last bits of energy in the Hangout Club or party for 24 hours non-stop in the Fiesta Bar. Next to these afterparties, there will also be a lot of secret pop-up parties before the festival starts. So, keep an eye out when you are walking around the camping grounds, you might stumble upon a wild party!
When you book a Friends Field, you will have your own electricity point (10 ampère, 2300 W). Pay attention: you need a CEE-plug for this. All remaining campers won’t have their own electricity because the network is not sufficient for thousands of people. But no worries, there are mobile chargers available at the Central Plaza to charge your phone and you can use your straightener, blow drier or electric shaver at one of the public bathrooms.
Phone empty? Oh shit, how do you find your friends back or make pictures? Don’t panic! There will be a stand where you can rent a charger for your phone. It’s open 24 hours a day. You can pay with tokens here and you have to pay a small deposit which you will get back after you hand-in the charger.
There will be the possibility to rent a locker during the Decibel weekend. You can rent different sizes:
Medium: 25cm height, 30 cm wide and 50 cm depth
Large: 35 cm height, 30 cm wide and 50 cm depth
XXL: 35 cm height, 60 cm wide and 50 cm depth (what fits in here: a tent, sleeping bag, backpack, trolly’s and a lot more).
Lost and found
When you find belongings at the park that are not yours, you can hand them in at the info stand. This also works the other way around; in case you lose something you can inform here if they found it. TIP: Write your name on all your belongings. This will make it easier to trace items if they are lost.

Do’s & Don’ts

Items not allowed include glass bottles and crates of beer, large speakers or music systems, long extension cables and reels, reusable BBQs, aggregates and generators, alcoholic drinks above 15%, sharp knives and tools. There are also a few rules that we ask you to heed, so that everyone has an epic weekend and can enjoy Decibel to the max! Not only for now, but also for the years ahead. Check here what you can and cannot take to the campsite.
