Vervoer & Bereikbaarheid

Het festivalterrein is gelegen op de Scheldekaaien, aan het Zuid.

Kom bij voorkeur met het openbaar vervoer of met de fiets! Je helpt ons op deze manier om de overlast voor onze buren als de inwoners van de stad te beperken én het is beter voor het milieu. Parkeren is altijd net dat tikkeltje moeilijker, zeker tijdens een evenement van deze omvang. Dus kijk gerust naar andere opties, we zien je wel arriveren!

Over Antwerpen

Antwerpen - stad aan de Schelde, stad van Rubens, van diamanten, van mode, een havenstad... De som van al deze verschillende aspecten is wat Antwerpen tot een echte stad maakt: een bruisende, gastvrije metropool, die ook heel leuk en hartverwarmend is, met groene zones waar je je kunt ontspannen en rustige hoekjes.

 

Antwerpen is een echte culturele hoofdstad, die prat gaat op haar indrukwekkende architectuur en prachtige kunst. Bovendien is Antwerpen een droombestemming voor fashionista's dankzij de winkels van haar wereldberoemde ontwerpers. Antwerpen: een metropool in zakformaat die in een mum van tijd ieders hart verovert.

Shoppen

Antwerpen heeft al sinds de zestiende eeuw een reputatie als 'triomfelycke coopstad' en nog steeds is het een paradijs voor shoppers. Struin door de voetgangersstraten en bewonder de historische panden terwijl je winkelt in bruisende winkelcentra.

Veiligheid

Voel je je onveilig? Bel het Noodnummer:  112 

Veiligheid is een top prioriteit voor ons
Want voor, tijdens en na de Antwerp Pride moet je je veilig kunnen voelen in en rond onze stad.

We zijn dan ook trots dat er, als enige stad in Belgie, onder de slogan “Proud to be your friend” geüniformeerde en niet-geüniformeerde medewerkers van Politie Antwerpen mee in de parade van de Antwerp Pride lopen.

In Antwerpen is er ook een diversiteits team dat zich specialiseert in het tegengaan van haatmisdrijven en het professionaliseren van hulpdiensten in en rond Antwerpen op het vlak van diversiteit.

Toch slachtoffer geworden van een misdrijf maar niet meer in gevaar? Meld het altijd!

  • How do I download the Antwerp Pride Festival Payment App?
    Download here our payment app for Apple or for Android
  • Where can I pay with the Antwerp Pride payment app
    Payment with our new handy payment app from Antwerp Pride is only possible on Saturdays and Sundays at the festival site at the Cockerillkaai, during the Love United festival and Closing Festival.
  • How do I order drinks and food on the festival site on Saturday and Sunday?
    You can order drinks and food on the festival site at the Cockerillkaai by downloading our new Antwerp Pride app. You can do this from now on and avoid long queues at the festival itself. Download here our app for Apple or for Android Load money into your account, top up your wallet Order and pay at the bar with your app! Payment via the app is only possible on the festival site at the Cockerillkaai on Saturday (Love United Festival) and on Sunday (Closing Festival).
  • Can I also load money via the app before the festival starts?
    Yes, and we recommend it! The wallet via our app is already available. This way you avoid queues during the festival and you can immediately order drinks or food when you arrive!
  • Can I buy drinks or food without the app?
    Preferably not. If there really is no other option, you can pay with cash or card at the cash register. Our employees then place the credit on a special card. You can scan it at the bar. Paying via the app is faster, you don't have to queue at the cash registers and it's safer for our volunteers. Just do it!
  • Can I have my credit refunded afterwards?
    You can do this via our app. If you have purchased a magnetic payment card at our cash register, you can only have this credit refunded if you create an account via the app and have this credit transferred from the ticket to the app at our cash registers. This is only possible during the festival at our cash registers. After the festival this is no longer possible. The cost for this is 2 euros.
  • How much is the refund price?
    To request your refund, it costs 2 euros. After the festival you have 7 days to do this from Wednesday 16 August.
  • What is the price of a top-up?
    The transaction cost of a top-up is 1 euro. This amount is the same for every amount you want to top up. That is why we recommend not to load smaller amounts, so that you avoid unnecessary costs.
  • How much should I charge?
    You can choose this yourself! You can enter a free price, or you can choose between different pre-programmed prices. Keep in mind that there is an additional transaction cost of 1 euro per top-up, so try to load your wallet as little as possible with several smaller amounts.
  • Can I buy drink-tokens beforehand?
    No, this year we don't use drink tokens. However this year we use a payment app. Which you can download here for Apple or for Android and already top up with funds. This way you avoid queues during the festival and you can immediately order drinks or food when you arrive! Kind of like drink tokens but then better ;)
  • What if I don't own a smartphone?
    You can always create an account through our web-application and top up from there. Then you can use your newly acquired digital wallet in 2 ways: 1. Download the QR-code and print it on paper. This QR-code can then be used directly at the bar or we can link it to a card at the cash-registers. 2. You. can show your ID-card at the cash register, where we will link your account to a card.
  • Why is my QR code not valid anymore?
    "This payment QR code is valid until" This means that your QR code is always regenerated when you open the app after 24 hours. This to prevent fraud and skimming. When you make connection to the internet again, the app will refresh and make a new code.
  • When can I request a refund?
    From Wednesday 16 August you can request a refund of your remaining funds. You have 7 days to do this. To request a refund you are billed a one-time processing fee of 2 euros.
  • Are the Antwerp Pride events wheelchair-accessible?
    We aim to make our activities accessible to everyone. The official Antwerp Pride events at OLT, Roze Huis, De Studio and de Festival-terrain are all wheelchair accessible. Moreover the wheelchair accessibility of any participating event can be seen if they carry the event category ' Wheelchair accessible '. Will you be attending with an assistance- or support-animal?

  • Where can I park my car during the Antwerp Pride?
    Antwerp has a new policy around parking, so you can't just park in the city centre if you don't live there. Moreover the whole City centre and Linkeroever have become low-emmision zones. This means that your car needs to adhere to certain standards before it is even legally allowed to enter the city. (Test your car here) Travelling from outside of Antwerp, we advise you to park in one of the multiple Park&Ride buildings at the edge of the city and travel further with the tram (the cost of which is only €1).
