PARKING

Suikerrock strongly recommends the use of the car park at Tienen station. This car park has ample parking space to accommodate +/- 1,600 cars. One part of it is located at the rear of the station, and is easily accessible via the southern ring road around Tienen. You can reach the Grote Markt using the pedestrian tunnel, the 4th Lancierslaan and the Leuvensestraat. A walk of just 800 metres! Another part of the total capacity (parking area) is located on the right, in front of the station (Zijdelingsstraat). It is best to avoid taking your car to the city centre during Suikerrock.

The organisers of Suikerrock have made extra efforts to make the festival accessible to people with a disability, including the provision of reserved parking spaces. For more information, please refer to the Accessibility page.

ROAD WORKS

These will not be completed by the time the festival takes place and as such detours may have to be taken at various places. Click here for more information about the current situation.
