Doel is a mythical place which carries a tumultuous history and hosts uniquely preserved architecture, but most importantly Doel is not a ghost town. Doel is still inhabited. Although the population is very slim, they deserve your consideration. Past plans for the expansion of the Antwerp port and demolition of Doel have been abandoned and now Doel is ready to flourish again. We as an organisation are committed to creating awareness surrounding the unique history of Doel, aim to collectively revitalise the village and imagine a new future for it.

It is our privilege to be able to organise our festival in Doel, we ask that you respect the town and its inhabitants.

Mutual care

We are collectively responsible for creating an inclusive environment and culture, so that we can all enjoy the moment. Everyone is welcome at Doel Festival. As a festival, we believe we can bring people with different perspectives and backgrounds together, resulting in a more stimulating event, where diverse voices are represented. Embrace it and celebrate it, but don’t forget to be mindful of others and respect their personal space.

Consent culture

Consent is not just a word. It is your right. Nobody should be allowed to occupy a space, body or mind if it was not mutually agreed upon beforehand. If someone says no, it means no. What’s more, it goes beyond sex and applies to everyday interactions, even if it seems as harmless as sharing a photo on social media. It should be voluntary, enthusiastic, verbal, non-coerced and continuous. There is absolutely no shame in asking.

Green policy

We work tirelessly to ensure our festival can take place in our beautiful location. The only way we can keep it that way is with your cooperation. Please consider the environment when enjoying the festival.



Symbiosis

Doel Festival has a symbiotic relationship with the village. We work together with local entrepreneurs and support the current inhabitants and redevelopment of Doel by donating a percentage of each purchased ticket into a support fund, specifically set up for that purpose. This means that you buying a ticket, has a direct impact on the village’s future.
