Hi - we're driving from the UK to the Festival - a couple of questions please if anyone knows please! 🙂

1) Do you pay for parking at the Festival in advance or when you turn up?

2) How long does it typically take to get out of the car park on the Monday morning? We need to be in Calais for check-in on the  Eurotunnel around 11:30 am - the drive itself is about 2h30 - 3hr I believe but want to give ourselves time to leave the site also!

Thanks!

Depending on what camping you have chosen depends on where you park. Hive has its own parking along the main road but if you have a camping regular you must use the other parking available. You pay when you enter the parking (can't find a price for this year but used to be €15)

Give yourself a good 2½hours to get back to Eurotunnel. It took me an hour to get on the road from the parking at the last festival but I left the camping after 10am. If you have to be that early you should be straight out.

Basic question but how many food/drink tokens do you guys tend to get through in a weekend?

About 80. Which I've just realised is 260 euros this year so probably less this time round.

We drove from the UK in 2017 and paid on arrival. It was cash only! We had to go back to the nearest town and hunt for cash as the rest of the festival was cashless. It might have changed post-Covid but consider this a warning 😄 

It took us a couple of hours to get out but we ended up parked pretty far down, away from the exit. Depends on when you arrive/leave really. Bit of luck required.

All that info was regarding Hive parking!

Rock Werchter Encore, so an extra day of Rock Werchter if you will. 

Shame it's not an actual Encore on the Wednesday or Monday, I would've changed my eurostar to see Florence.

Surely an encore is something that happens after the main show, so does this point to another band after a headliner?

Can't add an extra day as they have a permit from the local council for just the 4 days for the festival. I believe they only get 8 days per year at the moment.

Based on all the hints dropped here and on Festileaks: a one day festival on 26th of June, a bit shorter than a regular RW day (starting around 3-4pm?) and offering several stages.

Florence is sure. I heared could be a combo with London Grammar but would be weak for fill a full day with 

Florence en LG woud be the weakest top combo they've ever had. Last time Florence played before Mumford.
