Hell yeah! I love the free Dutch spirit. Can I take my weed to WiSH Outdoor?
How about NO.
Because, like most Dutch festivals, we have a zero tolerance policy on any kind of drugs.
And what if I’m really stupid by ignoring these rules and get caught with my drugs?
Depends on how much you're carrying with you. Punishment differs from banishment from our wonderland up to a trip with the local police and be fined/possible prosecution. Perhaps, you are even sentenced to an 18-hour non-stop Justin Bieber concert marathon.
I have a question that is not listed here. Who do I contact?

Yes and no. There are no Home Alone alike situations with falling objects or hidden traps. There are, however, a lot of possibilities for men to get caught up with a woman at the festival. Once you’ve been caught, you cannot escape her because of her abnormal sexy body and looks. That’s what we call a #boobie-trap.

The first aid team consists of a group of medical experts that can cure almost any problem. We believe they have a special gift. So if something happens, you will be getting the best possible care.

Will there be sunglasses/hats/sunscreens sold?
Yes, yes and yes. Really nice sunglasses and hats by the way.

Yes. Lost items can be found at the info/merchandise stand on the festival. If you've found something that doesn't belong to you, you can bring the lost item to the info/merchandise stand.

What happens with lost & found items after the festival?
We sell them on ebay/craigslist. No seriously, in the first 2 days after the festival all the lost & found items will be collected by us.

Towards the festival it will take you approximately 30 seconds. From the festival to the campsite probably 10 minutes ;)
