On 26 and 27 August, Contrair Open Air takes place in Antwerp on the beautiful Muisbroek Park nature reserve, right next to the Ekerse Putten. In cooperation with Keolis, Contrair deploys INTERCITY SHUTTLES to bring visitors safely and easily to and from the festival site.

Outward and return journey to and from the Contrair Open Air festival in Ekeren.

(separate outward or return journeys cannot be booked)

People travelling to Contrair by public transport or shared mobility (Poppy, A-velo, GO...) can take a continuous shuttle bus from P&R Luchtbal to the festival and back. A ticket costs €5 and can be bought via this link.

People who want to book a shuttle from Antwerp can do so from 4 locations in Antwerp and at different departure or return times.  For this shuttle service you can book a return trip separately. Book your outward or return journey here !

Access is only granted for one specific time and stop with a valid confirmation. It is not possible to board at another time or another stop. The same applies to the return journey: you can only return to the destination on your ticket.

Be sure not to leave anything behind on the bus, it is possible that you will be given a different vehicle for the return journey. You will be given a wristband with the number of your bus so that you can easily find your way back after the festival.
