Once upon a time...

…there was a magical place hidden deep into an enchanted forrest. Every year these grounds seem to change in shape and appearance. Different empires rose at De Berendonck through the course of years, leaving priceless memories and happy thoughts.

This year the wind of precious stories and exciting tales will whistle softly over the fields of Emporium Festival. A bright light of love will shine over us on the 27th of May 2017.

Together we will narrate our own story at Emporium Fairytales, so we will all live happily ever after…

All you need to know


The only method of paying at the festival is by tokens. These are available at the token machine spread across the terrain or at the cash desks near the lockers.

Please read this info carefully: Token Machines accept both bills as cards. First select the amount of tokens you wish to purchase, then pay for them in the method you desire. If something goes wrong during the transaction and you didn’t receive your tokens, then DO NOT LEAVE THE MACHINE. If you leave the machine unsupervised, there is no way to restore the error. Always leave someone at the machine to hold the machine. Then look around for someone in a recognizable jacket who can assist you further. If you can’t find anyone, please call the number displayed at the machine. If you contact us after the event about a transaction, we can not guarantee a proper solution.

There are NO ATM MACHINES available at the festival ground, so make sure to bring enough cash money or a bank card. All tokens bought at the festival are only valid during the openings hours of the festival (noon till midnight) and are NOT REFUNDABLE for money. Tokens are not valid at other events of Matrixx Events.

Usage of medication is only allowed at that location.
