THANK YOU
Thank you all for Ostend Beach 2022!

This year marked the 12th time we partied together on Belgium’s north west coastline, and by all accounts it was our greatest edition ever.

Our aim has always been to make each event better than the year before, and from what we’re hearing from all of you, we definitely achieved that. Whether it was the addition of new stage designs or the phenomenal lineup we produced, we’re glad all of you are extremely happy.

We want all of you to love Ostend Beach as much as we do, because without you, there would be no Ostend Beach. Thank you all, we do this for you.

To every single artist who came from near and far, thanks for providing the incredible vibes that made 2022 what it was.

To our partners, sponsors, the city of Ostend, and anyone who supported us in creating Ostend Beach 2022, you have our thanks. To say we couldn’t have done this without you is an understatement.

And to every single soul in the Ostend Beach team of management, crew, production, volunteers, friends, family and anyone who gave their time to make this edition a reality, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

We’re already looking forward to having everyone back on the sand in 2023.

Lots of love, Ostend Beach Festival

PARKING ZEEDIJK: visitoostende.be/nl/parking-zeedijk

NEW FOR 2022! We have our own private underground parking at Parking Zeedijk, 100m from the festival area. This is by far the best option to park your car as it can get very crowded in Ostend during the summer. Secure your parking spot at our ticketshop NOW.

Park easily at this Randparking and get to the city center in no time. The Randparking is open continuously and accessible to cars via the entrance on Stapelhuisstraat. Once the car has been parked, you can take the bus to the center at the entrance or walk (1.8 km) to the city.

Our Ostend Dunes Camping visitors park the car at P3 - Oosteroever. This car park is located on the eastern bank of the harbour. Parking here is completely free. Take the tram or bus "4/9" from De Lijn accross the street.

The Meister Hunt
WE ARE ON THE HUNT FOR A DJ MEISTER…

Do you get everyone in the room to dance like it’s their very last one?
And last but certainly not least, do you like to drink Jägermeister?

THEN WE HAVE SOME EXCITING NEWS FOR YOU!

We are looking for a DJ Meister who can translate the Jagermeister DNA and sound into ‘high energy’ music.

So this year, we are teaming up with one of Belgian’s Finest DJs to discover new raw music talent – ending with 3 finalists performing at Ostend Beach – of which one will eventually become our very first DJ Meister.

They will get the opportunity to learn from the best in the music industry. They will even have their own platform to share their creations in order to eventually become the next big DJ talent in the room, the club, the festivals.. you name it!

Top Up With Shells Now And Get Free Shells
This year is all about providing a better experience for all on our beach again, and one of the ways we're doing this for you all is by going cashless at Ostend Beach, with our currency: Shells.

Chances are, you've used cashless systems at a festival before, so we likely don't need to introduce the concept to you or how easy they are to use. However, unlike other events that may likely just list your cash as "money", "tokens", or "credit" on your wristband, we're of course going with a beach-y vibe, and naming them Shells.

You can already prepare for our party on sandy shores by topping up with Shells today, and reaping the rewards by saving 12,5% when you do it in advance of the event.

Shells are simple to use, and will already be topped up on your RFID wristband when you arrive at the festival site, so you won't have to bother about doing anything when you turn up to party. No waiting, no hassles.

But the best part is payment. Whenever you feel like grabbing a refreshing drink under the sun, or scoring a bite to eat, all you need to do is tap your wristband to use your Shells. It really couldn't be easier or faster, meaning you've got more time to enjoy the event, and party on the sand.

So get ready early for Ostend Beach, and load up with Shells and save NOW.

Lots of love, Ostend Beach Festival
