THANK YOU
Thank you all for Ostend Beach 2019!

This year marked the tenth 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 a new stage designs or the phenomenal lineup we produced, we’re glad all of you are extremely happy.

However, we know we weren’t perfect. We’ve listened to your comments and requests, whether that be for improvements on our cashless system, or making getting drinks faster and easier for you all, and we promise to you that we’ll make every effort to make those changes and more next year.

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 2019 what it was.

To our partners, sponsors, the city of Ostend, and anyone who supported us in creating Ostend Beach 2019, 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 our eighth 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 2020.

Lots of love,

Ostend Beach.

Our ECO story
Ostend Beach Festival was founded in 2010, before people began to become concerned about climate change. These days, everyone has woken up to the fact that we really have to do something about protecting the environment and reducing our impact on it. As a festival we’ve been exploring new ideas of how to lessen our toll on the beach and we’ve always tried to take an ecologically thoughtful approach to the way we do things, which we always hoped would inspire people.

We hope that we can continue to lead the charge in sustainable living by making Ostend Beach Festival as green as we are able to and by spreading the word to festival-goers about what will really make a difference to the environment. We continue to work as hard as we can on the practical things: from encouraging people to travel by public transport to promoting some great new initiatives on waste reduction.

Our 10 mission statements for Ostend Beach 2019:

✘ working with ECOCUPS with a deposit
✘ sensibilisation by Proper Strand Lopers at the festival
✘ all profits of our Guest Tickets donated to Proper Strand Lopers
✘ ECO teams, from building days till breakdown days
✘ separate waste management on the festival and backstage
✘ a close collaboration with the cleaning department of the city of Ostend
✘ NO plastic straws
✘ NO confetti
✘ NO flyering & NO sampling allowed
✘ we start with a clean beach, we end with a clean beach

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 - 10 Years, 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 - 10 years, and load up with Shells and save NOW.
