Crossroads of Poperingseweg and Hazewindestraat
It speaks for itself that we encourage any kind of transportation that minimalizes our ecological footprint: on foot, by bike, by train, by bus or by carpooling!
To guarantee the safety of the visitors and to obtain a normal traffic situation, the Poperingseweg, next to the festival, will be closed for traffic going TO the centre. Only the traffic COMING FROM the town centre, can pass with direction Vlamertinge/Noorderring. This ONE-WAY TRAFFIC will start from Thursday the 10th 9am till Monday the 14th12am.
The ONE-WAY traffic is not applicable for the public transport (De Lijn).
Visitors of Ieperfest should follow this:
The festival ground is situated near the Ieper railway station, and is therefore ideally located to get to the festival by train or bus. From the railway station, it takes a 15-20 minute walk to get to the festival site. Of course, you can always try to catch a ride with one of the friendly locals to get to the festival site faster!
If you are planning on coming to the festival by train, you can use the website of the Belgian Rail (B-rail) to plan your journey.
People living close enough to the festival site should definitely consider coming by bike or on foot, to reduce the ecological footprint to a minimum. If you DO come by car, please try to take as many people as possible! To help fill each and every car to the max, use the Ieperfest 2017 carshare page. People in search of a ride can send a request. People with some spare seats left in their car can put up a notice. Let's all try to make an effort and keep our ecological footprint as low as possible!
