Where is Couleur Café located and how do I get there?
Our festival entrance is located right beneath the Atomium (Atomium Square 1, 1020 Brussels).
We invest heavily in public transportation.
With STIB you can easily travel throughout Brussels by tram, metro or bus. However, we do not yet have an official agreement for free transport this year and therefore, unlike previous years, cannot we (yet) send an Event Pass code. We are doing everything we can make this happen.
NMBS offers a special train ticket that allows you to travel at half price from Friday 23 June to Monday 26 June from any Belgian station. You will receive a special code for this with your festival ticket.
We also provide a large bicycle parking (right next to the Atomium) for everyone who wants to come by bike. Those who still want to come by car can try to find a parking spot in the neighboring streets or reserve a parking space on our own private car parking.
More info on our mobility page.
Is Couleur Café accessible for people with a disability?
It sure is! Read all about it here.
What are the parking options?
We strongly advise everyone not to come by car, for ecological and practical reasons; long traffic jams can occur around the festival grounds. For those who have no other choice and wish to come by car, these are the options:
P1: This parking is located on the Atomium Avenue and is only granted to crew and certain VIPs. If you didn’t receive access for this parking, you cannot purchase it either. If you have been granted access, you’ll find all necessary info on your parking voucher.
P2: This parking is located on the Madrid Avenue. You can obtain a parking spot for this parking via our ticket page. You’ll find all necessary info on your parking voucher.
ATTENTION: your parking voucher is only valid until 8:00 AM of the following day. For example, if you have a parking ticket for Sunday 25 June, you must leave the parking before Monday morning 26th of June, 8AM. We therefore strongly advise people with a Camping ticket not to use this parking. It is also strictly forbidden to spend the night on this parking.
Car parks B, T, M and E are operated by Brussels Expo and are accessible depending on the events. You pay €10 per 24 hours, but we cannot guarantee that there will be a spot left during Couleur Café 2021. More info here.
