Getting there

Location

The festival is held at the edge of the village of Dalfsen. The address is: Brinkweg 36 B, 7722 VA in Dalfsen.

Driving directions

The festival is located in a beautiful village in The Netherlands and is easily accessible by any ground mode of transport. Since we are keen on maximizing overall positive impact on the environment and society, we urge all the villagers to share rides if public transport is not an option. 3 or more people per vehicle (bicycles excluded :-p) is our ultimate goal.

To make ride share easier for our dear villagers, we have organized RickyRides. Please follow the link: http://www.rickyrides.com/the-living-village-festival

Coming by public transport

Since we are keen on maximizing overall positive impact on the environment and society, we urge all the villagers to take public transport to the festival when possible. If you are coming from far away, please see if arriving to The Netherlands by train rather than a plane is an option.

Dalfsen is easily reachable by Train. From the train station in Dalfsen it’s a 20 minute beautiful walk to the festival. We will take care of a small transportation option from the station to the festival by bicycle taxi's =)
