TWO DAYS TO GO UNTIL BLEND TIME

small recap of all the Blend practicalities

We hope you are as excited as we are! Only two days left before the Blend festival kicks off! Yay!
We’ve gathered some practical info you might find useful. Should you still need answers, don’t forget there’s also a FAQ​  section on our website. Otherwise, you can always reach us by email, whatsapp or social media (details are all the way at the end!).
So what to expect from…

…Getting there

​Route

We’ve set up Blend at skate park Pier15, Veilingkade 12 in Breda. If you come by train, it is a 20 minute walk from the station.

Parking area

If you travel by car, parking is provided at Speelhuislaan 158 Breda. You can reach Pier15 by taking the bridge
between Brack and Pier15 – a 5 minute walk.
You can also park at the station.

…Food & Drinks

During Blend you can order your drinks at the outside Pier15 bar which offers a wide range of coffee, soda’s, craft beers and wine. Hungry? Grab a meal at Satéreiger: located beside the terrace of Pier15. Satéreiger also offers vegetarian and vegan options.

Opening hours

Pier15 bar: 10:00 – 23:00
Satéreiger: opens at 11:30

…Free program

The expo and outdoor program are free of charge. For the talks and interviews you will need a ticket. Invite your friends to the free program, plenty of fun things to see and experience.

…The weather

Who can actually know? ​The one thing we cannot control is – yes – the weather. We hope to have some October sun, but fear not. Terrace heathers, blankets, umbrellas: you name it,
we’ve got it. The only thing you have to do is dress in layers. So that – if the sun comes out – you can also work on your tan. And if not, you’ll stay warm.

…Question for one of the artists?  

Send it by WhatsApp via +31 40 30 98 017. We’ll try to get an answer for you!  

…Safe festival  

We are super happy that we can see each other in a relaxed way. Please note that we’re doing everything to keep you safe. The venue is ventilated properly and we ask every visitor to provide the Coronavirus Entry Pass for our indoor program. We’ll have desinfecting hand gels at the venue as well. Please note that you will be seated in rows of 4 seats. 

…Coronavirus Entry Pass 

Please note that for the expo, talks and interviews which are happening inside the venue we ask you to provide a Coronavirus Entry Pass or Digital COVID Certificate (DCC). This can either be (1) proof of vaccination, (2) proof of recovery or (3) a negative test result. If you have a Coronavirus Entry Pass based on a negative test result, you must have been tested no more than 24 hours before the start of the event. If your test result is older than that, you should get tested again so you can attend the event. You can use the app CoronaCheck to create your Coronavirus Entry Pass.
