eilân takes place on the island of Terschelling around the Duinmeertje on Hee and amidst forest and dunes. The campsite and bungalows are located right next to the festival ground. The villages of West Terschelling and Midsland and the beach are nearby.
You can reach Terschelling by boat from Harlingen. If you come by car, please use the parking lots in Harlingen.
A wide range of drinks and (vegetarian) food can be purchased at the festival grounds. You can also buy groceries at one of the supermarkets in West-Terschelling or Midsland, or go to restaurants and cafes across the island.
Smoking is only allowed in the designated smoking areas around the lake and prohibited in all interior spaces and under all roofs. To keep the island clean, we ask you to extinguish your cigarettes and clean them up, in a pocket ashtray for example. Larger ashtrays can also be found on site. The closest place to buy cigarettes is Midsland, so bring your own stock.
A zero tolerance policy on hard drugs and laughing gas applies on eilân. Soft drugs are permitted up to a maximum of 5 grams, pre-rolled joints are prohibited. Do you use medication? Then take a doctor’s prescription with you!
You will need different tickets to visit eilân. Of course a festival ticket, but this does not yet include accommodation and the boat crossing. So make sure you purchase everything you need! A clear overview is on our tickets page.
Despite our efforts, the movement of goods and people is still the biggest contributor to the carbon footprint of eilân. That’s why we’ve partnered up with Trees for All to start planting our own forest, both in the Netherlands and more tropical climates, through which we can start offsetting our collective emissions. You can donate €4 when purchasing a ticket. For every €4 donated, eilân will add a contribution of €1. The goal is to collect enough for a new forest of 2.500 trees strong.
As a visitor to eilân you can sleep on the campsite (with tent or camper) or the bungalow park right next to the festival site. On the ticket page you can find detailed information about the different accommodations that we offer.
It is not mandatory to stay in our accommodations, you can stay anywhere on the island.
The campsites have free sanitary facilities. Group spaces and camper pitches have a power point for charging phones etc. There are also sockets in the shower buildings. For more information about the various accommodation options, please visit our ticket page.
The campsites open on Thursday and close on Monday at 12:00.
