Fresh Village

Welcome to the craziest camping of the east! This is where you start your mini-holiday, right on the water, beach and festival grounds.Unfold that tent and jump in the biggest silent disco in Twente. And the best part: tomorrow we do it again, because Fresh Village is open for three days. Everything you want to know about this fabulous camping can be found below.

Fresh Village; that’s why!

Whether you live around the corner or in Guatela-who-the-hell-cares: Fresh Village is the place to stay during Freshtival. Here the party never stops. Get your friends in because your mini holiday starts here! 

Never going home

That’s the spirit. Because after midnight the party isn’t over, we move to our campsite for the biggest silent discos of the east. At a stone’s throw away from the festival site: your Valhalla to stay for 1, 2, or 3 nights!

Freshti-vibes

It’s nearly impossible to describe the ultimate Freshtival feeling. Fabulous, overwhelming, creative, crazy, sweet, rebellious… No, you just have to experience it.

Escape the ordinairy

Flee from that daily rut! At the camping, you will really be away from all the obligations and you can enjoy a care-free weekend with your best friends.

Mini vacation

Fresh Village is so much more than just a camping. Staying here (and especially partying here) is a mini vacation in itself. One that you and your friends will remember for a very long time.

Traditions

Freshtival has been a tradition for many people for many years. That Weekender is something you HAVE to tick off your bucketlist.

At your service

Great showers, toilets and a supermarket, check! But also: can’t sleep? Call the bedtime story team! They will come and read you a bedtime story, so you will sleep like a baby within no-time.

Memories forever

It’s all about making memories! Start new friendships, find your new love or experience great adventures with your very friends. You’ll be bringing up unforgettable memories of this legendary weekend for many years!

Your bed around the corner

Last but not least: you don’t need a bob or taxi! Your bed is literally around the corner on our campsite. But believe us when we say, sleeping will probably be the last thing you think about during Freshtival.

Can I bring a party tent?

Yes you can! However, the same regulations apply as for normal tents. Party tents can only be placed at the direction of the organization / camping host, and may be 3 x 3 m max. It is not allowed to create a circle of tents with a party tent in the center. Or buy it in advance in our ticket shop and pick it up upon arrival on presentation of the ticket!

You don’t have to do anything you don’t want to! Aside from your own tent on Camping 1 or 3, there are numerous options for spending the night at Fresh Village. Check them out here (link to ticketshop will follow)!
For instance, bring your own caravan for Camping 4 (= the caravan campsite) or go for that ready-made Festipi DeLuxe, Delta Deluxe or Festitent on Camping 1 (= the campsite at the waterfront)!

Can I park my caravan / camper on the camping?

Sure you can! Found a nice caravan on Marktplaats recently? Or still have that popup camper standing around? Bring that stuff! Your caravan, camper or popup camper is welcome at Camping 4 (= the caravan campsite) on Fresh Village. You will need a separate upgrade ticket called: ‘Caravan / Camper Ticket’.

Please note: Only vehicles that are registered as ‘camping vehicle’ are allowed on the terrain. This does not include temporarily converted vehicles with a mattress. Caravans or campers longer than 7 meters are not allowed in.

How big are the caravan/camper spots?

A caravan / camper spot is 28 m2 max (about 7 x 4m). There will be enough place to stall your caravan / camper and to place two small (extra) tents by your caravan / camper.

How can I check in with my caravan/camper?

Follow the signs caravan/camper, and please queue. Make sure you also have your camping parking ticket handy if you are coming by car. Don’t have one yet? No problem, these are still available online and on site.
