Castlefest Campsite

Pitch your tent!

Update: The Castlefest 2022 Camping is completely sold out. We have we tried hard to find alternatives with the several involved parties and organizations in the proximity, hoping to offer more camping spots. Unfortunately this didn’t work out as we hoped. You can read our full statement here

The fields that we have gratefully used for the campsite during previous editions have been designated as a nature reserve for native species. To protect nature and its inhabitants, our night party will be moved to the Keukenhof parking lot. This makes the campsite smaller, but it is much easier to reach and the animals are not as bothered by us.


Castlefest Camping tickets are online available during presale! It is not possible to buy your campsite tickets at the entrance. Check out this page for all our ticket options. To stay at the Castlefest Camping, you will need a Castlefanatic ticket including camping.


Check-in is possible on Thursday from 10:00 to 23:59 at the entrance of the campsite. From Friday onwards check-in is possible during the opening hours of the festival.

Stappen check-in:

  1. You arrive by car or by public transport at the main parking area.
  2. Walk from the main parking area to the campsite.
  3. Check-in: show your camping ticket and get a wristband and a trash bag. – If your trash bag is full during the weekend, you can get a new one at the camping reception. Let’s keep the terrain clean together!
  4. Put up your tent.
  5. Enjoy the feast and have a great time!


Field Lay-out

Pitch your tent on one of the dedicated fields. Please place your tent as efficiently as possible, as space is limited. Party tents and other bigger obstacles are not allowed. 
Tent sizes should correspond to the number of people staying in the tent.

The campsite is a quiet area. The Party Area is this year on the festival terrain (Woodland Village).


There is no electricity available on the camping site. You can charge your telephone batteries at the campgrounds for a small fee.


Drinking water taps can be found near the showers. Please note that it ́s only clean water when indicated by symbols!

People with disabilities

Unfortunately, our camping fields are not suitable for people with disabilities. There are no special facilities available on our campsite. Fortunately, there are several campings in the area that are more suitable for people with disabilities. Check out this page for a list of these campings.

Cooking area

Cooking is allowed in the designated cooking area. You are only allowed to use distillers that make use of disposable gas cartridges, types C206, CV300 and CV470 plus. At the cooking area, you'll find tables and drinking water. There is no electricity. 

Camper vans, caravans and folding trailers

Unfortunately it isn't possible to camp at the Castlefest Camping in a campervan, caravan or folding trailer. However, this is possible on several campings in the area, in case you are keen on using one of those.
