At Dokk’em Open Air you pay your food and drinks with tokens. You can buy your tokens with cash and with a debit card. Merchandise at the metalmarket can be paid for with cash and debit card as well.

Please note!

We have reusable and recyclable cups, because we like the environment and do not like plastic on the ground.

These cups cost 1 token each. When ordering a drink, you pay one token extra for the cup. 

When you buy yourself another drink, you hand in the cup, so you don’t have to ‘buy’ a new cup.

And what can you do with the empty cup at the end of the festival?

  • You can take it home (especially the Dokk’em-cups are very pretty); 
  • Hand it in at the bar for a so called Cup-token (so you don’t have to walk around with a cup);
  • Hand it in at the token sale (you will get a €2,50 refund);
  • Give it to your neighbour and ask if he or she would like to get you another beer.

    attention? I mean Information 2019 – DOKK'EM OPEN AIR is
    kinda vanilla. You ought to look at Yahoo’s home page and note how they create article titles to get viewers to click.
    You might add a video or a picture or two to get readers excited about everything’ve got to say.

    In my opinion, it could bring your posts a little livelier.
