The Droixhe area in Liege
For people living or arriving in Liège
The venue is less than 10 minutes away from Liège city center by bus or by car.
By car, drive on the embankment to Droixhe, carry on the "Pont Atlas", go through the crossroads, go straight (you see a tower with a "Taaj" supermarket on your right), you are on the "Avenue de Lille". The venue is on the other side of the lane. It is possible to park your car under the trees.
Bus stops are located in front of the Liège-Guillemins railway station (Bus n°17) and at Leopold station (Bus n°18). Buses stop very close to the venue so it's very easy.
The festival starts on 8PM. On Saturday evening, last buses n°17 are leaving the Guillemins railway station in direction of the venue around 10.45 PM and last buses n°18 are leaving the Leopold station around 11.15 PM. If you miss the last n°17 bus, it is possible to take quickly the Bus n°3 or 4 to St-Lambert/Theater station, then run fast and cross the Place St-Lambert and arrive at the Leopold station and then take there the last n°18 bus ! After the party (sorry to already talk about that), on Sunday morning, first buses are leaving the venue around 5.10 AM to the Guillemins railway station and 6.30 AM to the Leopold Station. The festival stops at 6 AM. Complete Bus schedule here: Line 17, Line 18 (pages 4 and 5)
Taxis (Melchior: 04/252.20.20, Unitax: 04/365.65.65) are also available...

It is possible to park your car under the trees. It should take less than 3 minutes from the E25 exit.
Ask people having a car if they have free place (lift, sharing) in our forum. Don't forget to bring orange juice, chocolate, tangerine or sweets with you to thank them.
Direct trains to Liège-Guillemins Railway station are available from most belgian cities (Ghent, Brussels, Namur, Verviers, Charleroi, Antwerp, Hasselt, Eupen, Leuven, ...), and international cities (Paris, Lille-Flandres, Köln, Maastricht). Check IC (Inter City) and IR (Inter Regio) relations. So, if you are able to reach one of these cities, you would be able to reach Liège in only one more step. For example, Brussels-Zuid (Bruxelles-Midi) is probably the most connected railway station in Belgium and it's about one hour away from Liège-Guillemins (relations every hour). Then, check information about how to reach the venue when arriving in Liège.
Closest airports are Maastricht/Aachen (MAA), Brussels (BRU), Brussels South/Charleroi (CRL), Köln/Bonn (CGN), Eindhoven (EIN), Düsseldorf (DUS/MLG/NRN). Airports are generally connected by train to the rest of the world.
