Open and friendly festival, Les Ardentes tolerate no slippage in terms of equality.
Be cool and respect each other. That everyone can enjoy the festival without any inconvenience. In preparation for this new edition, we have therefore put in place the most adequate reinforced security measures. In recent weeks, we have intensified contacts with the police and local authorities, plans have been adapted and additional measures have been taken.
For obvious reasons of security, we can not communicate in detail these but we can confirm you an increased police presence inside and around the park of the festival.
There will also be more security officers. The controls at the entrance of the festival will be reinforced. Small backpacks (- 45 cm high) and handbags will be allowed but will be strictly controlled.
Visitors will be asked to open them spontaneously and show the contents to the control staff. We will do everything to ensure that these additional security measures can take place in the friendly atmosphere of Les Ardentes.
We thank you already for your comprehension and for your collaboration in the application of these.
