Paradigm FestivalAugust 10 & 11


During our festival, travellers might also need a place to rest and relax. That’s why, during Paradigm Festival, you’ll see the return of a camping ground with several facilities, like toilets and hot showers!

The camping area is within walking distance of the festival stages. If you would like to stay on the campsite, be mindful of the fact that you can’t bring your car to the camping. The car needs to be parked at the parking area.

It is also possible to come to the festival with a camper or trailer. You have to leave your car at the parking lot after you’ve set up your trailer. You will be guided by authorized and easy-to-spot personnel towards a designated camping spot.

How to get to the campsite?

We have our own parking lot for our camping guests (P1). The only way to reach it is to go to the following address: Johan van Zwedenlaan, Groningen. You’ll be greeted by a park attendant. When doing so, please be ready to show your camping tickets (which can bought here) and a valid ID. Be mindful that one camping ticket is only valid for a single person. You can follow the signs from then on out! You can go to your camping spot after you’ve signed in at the front desk.
