Geef een Toegift (donate tickets)

Over het IJ Festival is easily accessible by bike, bus, and ferry. We suggest coming by bike, as some shows are located outside the NDSM Wharf. 

FERRY. The public transit service’s free ferry will take you from Central Station to the NDSM Wharf in ten minutes. It leaves twice per hour, and four times per hour during peak hours. The ferry ride takes 4 minutes. There is also a ferry between the Tasmanstraat in the Western Harbor Area (Westelijk Havengebied) and the NDSM Wharf. During peak hours, the ferry leaves three times per hour, and twice per hour in off-peak hours. The ferry ride takes only 6 minutes. 

BUS. From Central Station, take bus 391 (towards Zaandam Zaanse Schans) or bus 394 (towards Zaandam Station) and stop at the Klaprozenweg bus stop. City bus 35 (towards Molenwijk) also leaves from Central Station; with this bus, get off at the Ataturk bus stop. From both bus stops, it’s a five-minute walk to the festival grounds. Check the current bus schedule here: http://9292.nl.

CAR. If you’re coming by car after all, then you can use the parking spaces on the NDSM Wharf next to the Scheepsbouwloods (ship building warehouse). From Monday to Sunday from 9:00AM to 11:00PM, the rate is €1.30 per hour.

You can reach shows outside the NDSM Wharf on your own (by bike or on foot). Check the map for all the venues outside the NDSM Wharf and the starting points of the bike and walking routes. Keep the extra travel time in mind. 

At the NDSM Wharf, you can’t visit all the performances on your own. The starting point for the New Makers Program (Nieuwe Makers Programma) and Specials is in the heart of the festival. From the starting point, you will be guided to the performance location. 
Eating and drinking in the heart of the festival
The bustling center of the festival is, once again, the heart of the festival. This year, it is built around Sexyland. Of course, the heart of the festival is also the spot to enjoy the lively festival atmosphere. Hungry or thirsty? Order a drink at the bar, a delicious meal at CURRYUP!, or a sweet treat at De Taartenkamer.
