Lieve Garden Dancers,

2 jaar lang hebben we jullie moeten missen. Gelukkig is er nu groenlicht gegeven vanuit de overheid en zijn veel van de restricties weer opgeheven. Dat betekent voor ons dat wij ook weer aan de slag kunnen!

Mystic Garden Festival zal plaatsvinden op 25 september 2021.
We verwelkomen graag jullie allemaal op zaterdag 25 september. Ons familieteam, ZZP-ers, creatievelingen en iedereen eromheen die Mystic Garden maakt tot wat het is kunnen niet wachten om al jullie blije gezichten weer te zien, te zien dansen, los gaan, de buitenwereld te vergeten en toe te treden door de poorten van Mystic Garden.

Behouden ticket

Garden Dancers die hun kaartje behouden hebben en op die manier ons gesteund hebben dankjewel! We hadden eerder aangegeven dat jullie begin juli bericht van ons kregen over de nieuwe tickets. Door de recente ontwikkelingen vanuit het kabinet, waardoor evenementen niet meer plaats kunnen vinden zeker tot en met 13 augustus hebben we besloten om te wachten met het versturen van de nieuwe tickets. Hiermee willen we verwarring voorkomen die zouden kunnen worden veroorzaakt door beslissingen vanuit het kabinet als we nu tickets gaan verzenden en later het weer moeten veranderen of aanpassen.

Voucher

Bezoekers die een voucher hebben aangevraagd kunnen die gebruiken voor 1 van onze evenementen in 2021 en 2022.

Refund

Voor de mensen die een refund hebben aangevraagd na augustus 2020 krijgen in juli 2021 hun aankoopbedrag teruggestort.

As you all hopefully know by now, our new date for Mystic Garden Festival 2021 is the 25th of September. That’s just around the corner!

Here is some useful information regarding your saved tickets from last year:

For those of you waiting for your re-issued tickets for Mystic Garden Festival 2021 on the 25th of September: Weโ€™ve decided that it be prudent to wait for the government to give us more information and assurances that we will be able to open our doors in September before we send these out. We want to avoid any confusion that might be caused by yet another flip-flop decision coming from our cabinet should we send out tickets now and need to change or adjust things later on.

  • We’ll release our line-up soon!
  • This will be the most fabulous edition of Mystic Garden Festival to date!

  • Regarding additional ticket sales for Mystic Garden Festival 2021: Once again we have decided that it be prudent to wait for more clarity and assurances from the government before taking any action here. We feel that itโ€™s not fair to sell tickets without more clarity from the cabinet regarding their intentions..

Ik heb mijn ticket(s) laten omzetten naar de editie van 2021, maar ik heb nog geen nieuw ticket ontvangen. Wanneer kan ik die verwachten?

Door de meest recente ontwikkelingen hebben we besloten om nog even te wachten met het versturen van de vernieuwde tickets.

Ik heb geen tickets voor Mystic Garden Festival 2020, maar zou wel graag in 2021 naar Mystic Garden Festival willen komen. Komen er straks nog tickets in de verkoop?

Mystic Garden Festival verkoopt steeds sneller uit, iets waar wij heel trots op zijn.
Wij zien dat er weinig refunds aangevraagd zijn, en dat de meeste ticketkopers hun tickets hebben gehouden voor de editie van 2021.
Mocht er nog een klein aantal tickets ter beschikking komen, verloten we die onder de belangstellenden. Houd hiervoor onze socials in de gaten.

8. Always have safe sex
9. The first aid team is your friend
10. Don’t drink, drug or drive. You’re a big risk for yourself and others

General rules and conditions

Please find here our General Rules and Conditions.

Sustainability & accessibility
Sustainability & accessibility

We believe sustainable entrepreneurship is a mindset. With the right mindset, making sustainable choices often happens as a matter of course. Helped by this mindset we are, with our festival, one of the leaders in the field of sustainability. We are very proud of this, but also find it necessary in todayโ€™s society. When we are talking about sustainability, this is in both ecological and social terms.

In our objectives we do not mention percentages or ambitious figures. We constantly monitor and measure our performance and whenever the figures are relevant for improvement we take action. We do not want to waste energy, but save energy instead, also in terms of policy. Brief, powerful, efficient but most of all effective. Sustainability is not a marketing tool, we focus our policy on areas where real gains can be made.

We want to raise awareness amongst our visitors that together we can achieve a great deal when it comes to sustainability. At our festival we as organizers make sustainable choices, but we hope that we can also convey this to you, the visitor. Both at the festival and afterwards, in daily life. A few ways in which you as a visitor can contribute are set out below.

How you can contribute as a visitor?

Recycle token: your drink cup is no longer waste, but a raw material
Within the next few years it will be common practice at most festivals to return your cup or bottle to the bar and no longer throw them in the trash. We โ€œupcycleโ€ the cups, which means that we will make an equivalent product from the material during the recycling process. There is more to this type of upcycling than you might initially think. It is only attainable if the cups are clean, made of PET-plastic and not printed. This leads to a method of separating plastic waste which can be very different compared to the way you might be separating plastic at home: we separate our festival cups from other plastic materials. At our festival this is the most sustainable way of working, and you will also be sure to always have a fresh, clean cup in your hand.

To ensure that cups are returned appropriately, we work with a recycle token. Upon entry you will receive a recycle token from us. You hand in this token at the bar when you order your first drink. If you return your empty cup/ bottle to the bar, you will again receive a token. Of course, you can also immediately order a new drink when returning your empty cup/ bottle. Want to get rid of your empty cup but not walk to the bar? Keep an eye on our mobile intake-teams. They will be easily identifiable and walking around amongst the crowd, and they will exchange your cup for a token. If you come to the bar ordering a new drink without returning your cup/bottle or without handing in a token, you will pay half a coin extra. In short, please contribute and hand in your cup!

What is more, our recycle tokens are made of old fishing nets, this way we prevent these nets from ending up in the sea and we will give a new purpose to old fishing nets!

 

Separating waste: a small effort, but a big impact
When you are at the festival you will only have little waste, for example cigarette or chewing gum packaging and the carrying trays that we distribute at the bars. That is why we can keep it simple in terms of waste separation. We separate cardboardย and residual wasteย on the entire festival site, only at the โ€œfood courtsโ€ do we separate compostable materialย and residual waste. All plates, cutlery and napkins are made from a biologically degradable material. So please help the environment and throw them away in the compost bin!

In case it starts raining we will distribute ponchosย at the bars. When the rain is over, you can deposit the used poncho in special containers that will be placed next to all bars.

 

Are you choosing the vegetarian option?
Our range of products at the โ€œfood courtsโ€ already consists of more than 70% of vegetarian dishes. These are just as tasty as the meat variants and, moreover, they are not more expensive. Do you want to contribute to a better environment by choosing vegetarian dishes? The choice is yours!

 

We love your ears!
You too? Bring your own ear plugs or buy special party plugs from Alpine at our merchandise stall at the festival.
These party plugs are reusable and are sold in a small case.

 

Traveling by public transport or by bike
In order to reduce emissions by vehicles as much as possible, we encourage visitors to travel by public transport or by bike. A large bicycle parking is set up at the entrance of the festival, we also have a shuttle bus service that will drop you off at the entrance and will take you back to Sloterdijk station at the end of the festival. A return ticket for the shuttle bus is only a few euros and the bike parking is completely free of charge.

 

Free parking for fully electric cars
We also encourage the use of electric cars! Therefore, we offer a free parking space for our visitors arriving in a fully electric car. There is thus no need to pay for parking, but you will need to show the vehicle registration certificate so that the traffic controller can check that your car is fully electric.

Please note, we only have a very limited amount of charging stations (Plug type: Type II. Charging type: <=22kW to be used with a charging card) available in the parking lot, so please only use the charging stations if necessary for the return journey.

Sustainability behind the scenes

Much more is happening behind the scenes. You might not notice what is going on, but it is sustainable!

Energy
Energy reduction is in our opinion key in terms of sustainability. For what is not consumed in energy does not have to be generated. This might sound logical, but unfortunately it is still very common in the festival world to continue running aggregates during set-up and dismantling or at night while they are not at all or barely used.

Since our first festival in 2012 we have been driven by sustainability concerns to reduce our emission. We do this for example by using energy-efficient equipment such as LED lighting, the use of battery cells loaded with green electricity and we use biodiesel in cases where fuel is still needed, for example for the forklift trucks. We keep a close eye on our energy consumption and measure this every year in order to be able to make the festival more and more energy efficient. We also ensure that transport to and from our festival runs efficiently. For example, we mainly select suppliers from the region and we try to transport as many materials as possible in one transport so that there is as little transport movement as possible. We also stimulate our suppliers to drive with fuel-efficient (freight) trucks.

 

Circular economy
Our view on waste has changed over the past years. Instead of single-stream recycling we now separate multiple streams of waste behind the scenes, such as compostable materials, consumption coins, glass, wood, paper & cardboard, PET plastic, caps and โ€œPMDโ€ (plastic packaging, metal packaging and beverage cartons).
In addition, we also look for materials that can be reused within our decoration. Almost all of our decorations at the festival are reused or are made from reusable material.

 

Accessibility
We want our festival to be easily accessible to everyone. Regardless of whether you are a visitor with reduced mobility or not. For wheelchair users, there are accessible toiletsย and there is a widened entrance gateย which is clearly indicated. This year we will also have our festival tested on wheelchair accessibility, we will evaluate any suggestions for improvement and address these in our preparation for all of our following festivals.

In addition, we have also made several other choices in order to make the festival as accessible as possible to everyone. Most paths are paved and there is wood flooring in front of most of the stages. Emergency exitsย are free of obstacles such as stairs and curbs. We lay extra road plates over cable protection ramps so that they can be โ€œbridgedโ€. If you have a disability and are arriving at the festival by car, please email us in advance, we will inform you about the best place to parkย or to be dropped off. In case you have not emailed us, please speak to one of our traffic controllers and we will try to find a suitable solution. Support workers, as well as friends, acquaintances or family members that act as personal assistants,ย must be in possession of a valid admission ticket.

We are not in favor of bringing guide dogs and assistance dogsย to the festival. We are concerned that the high sound volume and crowds together with dogs might not be a beneficial combination.

Mobility scootersย are not allowed on the festival site for safety reasons, electric wheelchairsย are allowed.

In addition, we also want our catering to be accessible to everyone. This means that we offer a wide range of different dishes whereby we have also tried to take into account possible allergies you may have.

 

Participation
We work together with various creative entrepreneurs, creative breeding grounds, schools and foundations to make our festival a success. We are of course always open to more collaborations!

 

The park
We are privileged to have been given permission to organize our festival in the incredibly beautiful and green Sloterpark. It goes without saying that we are mindful of the park and carefully protect its flora and fauna during the festival. Moreover, every year in preparation of the festival we have an ecological study carried out so that we know what aspects we should pay extra attention to and take into consideration during the execution of our festival.

 

Promoting the festival & informing visitors in a sustainable way
Also when it comes to promoting the festival we consider the environment. For example, it is a conscious choice to work with as little printed material as possible: we only promote the festival by using posters along the road.

Regarding on-site information for visitors: we do not give out flyers, timetables or maps at the festival. Instead, there are information banners with timetables and maps which visitors can consult. Also, no gadgets will be handed out nor any other items that usually end up being thrown away and left on the ground.

 

The cleanup
During the festival and afterward we carefully clean up the festival site and often leave the park cleaner and tidier than how we found it when we arrived. The cleaning products we use are biodegradable, just like the liquids in the toilets and the toilet paper.

Accessibility

We want our festival to be easily accessible to everyone. We also want our catering to be accessible to everyone. Therefore we offer a diverse range of food and beverages and aim to have included a variety of suitable options for those who have any of the common allergies. All the measures we have taken to improve accessibility can be foundย here:
