For your own safety the following items are forbidden onsite:
- Weapons, explosive, volatile or inflammable substances.

Les Ardentes for all
In collaboration with the minister for Health, Social Action and Equal Opportunities, Eliane Tillieux, Les Ardentes has made the site accessible for all: people with reduced mobility, the blind and partially-sighted, along with the deaf and hard of hearing.
Allocated parking, accessible layouts, toilet facilities and a good view of the stage will be put into place.
“Festivals for All” a National Lottery project equally wants to make the festival accessible to all.
Every year, we invite different NGOs and societies to come and meet Ardentes festival-goers.
For 4 years now, every morning, on the camp site, the FGTB offers breakfast meetings to inform festival-goers of the role of a union in a professional career. This breakfast is made up of fairtrade products.
Médecins Sans Frontières will offer a new activity ˝First Mission˝. MSF ambassadors will give festival-goers the opportunity to experience a “first mission” where they will put themselves in the shoes of “a young expat, who goes off for the first time into the field with Médecins Sans Frontières”.
Something new of this 2013 edition is that we will welcome OXFAM and Red Cross on the festival site.
The Red Cross will offer an awareness campaign addressing the problems of asylum seekers. On their stand, animators accompanied by residents of centres for asylum seeker will hand out informative brochures and offer activities related to this theme.
This summer, Oxfam’s Behind the Brands campaign aims to provide people who buy and enjoy these products with the information they need to hold the Big 10 food campanies to account for what happens in their supply chains. Without you, they won’t stay big for long. Come to Oxfam stand if you'd like to take action with an original pic of you showing to the big Tens that you care about farmers and planet!
