People with disabilities

Unfortunately our new camping fields are not suitable for people with disabilities. Not only are these fields unpaved, but there is also quite a great distance between the parking lot and the Keltfest Camping. There will be no shuttle service between the parking lot and the camping and there are no special facilities available on our camping.

Are you arriving via public transport? Please plan your journey at 9292 using Expo Haarlemmermeer in Vijfhuizen as your point of arrival. From there it’s a short walk to the entrance.

Camping fields lay-out

The camping site is divided in different zones, you are free to pick a spot within this zones. There is no specific quiet zone for visitors, so please keep in mind that it can be noisy in the evening sometimes.

Water

A drinking water tap can be found near the showers. Please note that it’s only clean water when indicated by symbols! The washing bins at the public toilets, for instance, do NOT provide clean drinking water!

Power supply

There is no electricity available on the camping site. You can charge your telephone batteries at the campgrounds for a small fee, or get a (Castlefest) Powerbank.

You do not need to check out upon departing. 
 
 You are free to stay until Monday morning, 10:00, after which the clean-up crew kicks everybody out (gently).

Campsite rules

– Guests staying at the Keltfest Festival Camping accept any limitations or discomforts that go with staying at a festival camping. Even though there will be Vana Events staff present at the camping grounds at all times, Vana Events cannot be held responsible for any damage to, theft or loss of property. Campers younger than 16 years old need to be accompanied by an adult. 

– Bought on site glass bottles and (LARP)weapons that are brought as part of your costume are not allowed at the camping. It is possible to temporarily safe-deposit these items at the camping entrance. It is NOT possible to deposit gas bottles and other camping prohibited items.
 
– In the cooking area, you are only allowed to use distillers that make use of disposable gas cartridges, types C206, CV300 and CV470 plus. Using other types of gas bottles, (disposable) barbecues or cooking outside the designated cooking area is strictly prohibited because of fire safety regulations.
In extreme heat, staff may avert from this rule.
 
– Consider your neighbours. Don’t put your tent in someone else’s and try to be as quiet as possible after 23.00h. Party tents and other bigger obstacles are at the expense of sleeping tents. Vana Events staff as allowed to order you to remove your party tent. Tent sizes should correspond to the number of people staying in the tent. In other words: no army tent for only 2 people.

 – There are NO special facilities (parking spots or showers) for the impaired on the camping site. Due to the large distance between the visitors parking and the camping and the quality of our camping fields, we discourage people with a physical handicap to stay at our camping. 

– Prohibited at the Keltfest camping: Open and closed fire (candles, wax candles, barbecues, torches, fire-eating, free poi or other fire shows), gas bottles (with exception of types C206, CV300 plus and CV470 plus), (LARP)weapons, drugs, glass, sound systems and power generators, animals (with exception of guide dogs recognisable as such), handing out flyers, folders or any other kind of promo material  and all other objects about which Vana Events staff decides on the spot.

I want to bring the mead I brought at the festival to the campsite, but glass is not allowed?

Indeed, glass is not allowed on the campsite grounds.

Where can I put my (re-enactment/LARP) weapons?

At the entrance (to the campsite) is a special ‘weapon wardrobe’. Here you can hand over your weapon for safekeeping. Weapons are NOT allowed on the campsite. You will receive a receipt and with that you can pick your weapon up whenever you leave the campsite.

Are dogs allowed at the campsite?

No, it is not allowed to bring animals onto the campsite. Only certified and clearly as such recognisable guide dogs are allowed. They need to be walked outside the camping grounds.

Are you allowed to build a campfire or fire up the barbecue at the campsite?

No, due to fire regulations you are not allowed to have a campfire, barbecue or have any form of open fire. 

Are we guaranteed a quiet campsite after 23:00 (11:00 pm)?

Unfortunately we cannot guarantee this. Do you want to be guaranteed of some peace and quiet, then we recommend you to book a spot at a regular campsite.
