About ADE Hangover

ADE Hangover is an ADE, Into the Woods and NDSM initiative.

Which ferry should I get?

Due to personel problems, there are lesser ferries than usual during ADE. To avoid queues at the main ferry to NDSM, you can take the ferry at Central Station to Buiksloterweg. It’s a nine minute bike ride from Buiksloterweg to the terrain. This ferry also runs throughout the night.

Are you leaving from the west of the city? Then it’s more convenient to take the ferry at Pontsteiger. Please be aware during the ride back that the ferry might be fairly full. Do you wanna play safe and be home earlier, take the ferry back at Buiksloterweg.

Where can I find a map of the festival?

Take a look at the 2D version of the festival and find your way.


Can I buy earplugs?

Better safe than sorry with the only set of hearing you have. Alpine Partyplugs can be bought at the cashiers and foam earplugs can be bought at the bars. We don’t have earplugs in kids-size, so make sure in case you take kids to the wharf to bring earplugs for them yourself.

Can I buy a locker?

There are plenty of lockers available on the terrain.

How warm should I dress up for ADE Hangover?

All stages are covered, but it can be windy on the wharf. So be sure to bring warm clothes. There are plenty of lockers.
