    Read below for more ticketing FAQ's

    - Can we stay at the campground for the entire weekend with a van live ticket if we only have day tickets?

    Visitors with a day ticket will not have access to the campsite and cannot be accredited with campervan passes. If you would like to come with a campervan you need to purchase a full weekend ticket plus a campervan ticket.

    - Which campervans can I bring to the festival with a van life ticket?

    There is no maximum size or any further restrictions about the campervan you can bring to the festival. However, you cannot bring a trailer. This means no caravans because you have to deal with the car as well, which is really space inefficient. It does not matter how many people sleep in a van. - Everybody needs a full weekend ticket though. Some camping spots have electricity, this has to be shared with the other people on the same spot. This cannot be reserved beforehand.

    - How are my camping spots booked for the festival?

    Unless you have booked a specific camping option with Camping De Lakens or Festitent the camping spots are served on a first come first serve basis. There are no pre reservations made.

    - Do I need tickets for my children?

    Children between the age of 6 to 17 require a ticket for children. Children younger than 6 do not need a ticket - all children must be accompanied by an adult.

It is our philosophy to live happily, to enjoy life to the utmost – and to share our lifestyle with others. Our success is simply based on a combination of surf and sport activities on the one hand, and a healthy lifestyle around nature on the other. Located near the beach and the beautiful dunes of the National Park Zuid-Kennemerland, here people will be able to enjoy a simple lifestyle among other people who share that same vibe! In 2013 we decided to create an event that reflects the whole Surfana ideology. Surfana Festival was born. Here we’ve brought together al our love and passion into a one-weekend experience of pure goodlife.. It is a festival to celebrate our lifestyle but also to inspire more people to choose a life based on happiness instead of work.
