Public Transport and Parking

Public Transport (+ Shuttle Bus)
The best and easiest way to get to the festival is to take the train in combination with the shuttle bus. We encourage everyone to choose environmentally friendly means of transportation. Plan your trip from anywhere in the Netherlands to NS Station Zaandam by using this link. After you reached NS station Zaandam, we strongly recommend you use the shuttle bus to get to the festival and the other way around. Check the section ‘shuttles’ for more information.

There is no parking availability in or around the venue. We strongly advise you to visit the venue with public transport or park at Q-park Hermitage.

Parking (+ Shuttle Bus)
If you want to park the car, we advise you to park with Q park hermitage. Via the links below, you can purchase your parking ticket.

Please note, after you parked your car, we advise you to take the shuttle bus to the festival site. The Q-park garage is located next to the shuttle bus terminal (NS Station Zaandam). Check the section ‘shuttles’ for more information. Please note the parking ticket is not a valid shuttle bus ticket, buy your shuttle bus ticket here

Taxis can be found at the Cornelis Ouwejanstraat in Zaandam.


A party without music is like a carbonated drink without fizz. But going deaf, or having ringing in your ears that simply won’t go away, is a very sad memento of a good party. So go easy on your ears and be sure to wear ear plugs if the sound level exceeds 80 dB(A). Earplugs can be bought at the merchandise- and info stand.

Celebrate Safe

During Secret Project Festival we celebrate safely. When you (or your friend) are not feeling well, please visit our first aid team. The first aid team is your friend and are here to help you without judgement.

In addition to doing everything we can as an organization to create a safe environment, we also think it is important that you look out and take good care of yourself and others.

Any form of harassment is absolutely not tolerated and neither is violence. Inform the venue staff right away when you or someone else is in need of help.

If you are in doubt of a situation, ask the person ‘are you okay?’

Zero Tolerance

We have a zero tolerance policy and so discourage you to bring (soft)drugs to the event. If one of these is detected during visitation, you will be denied access to the event. Public use of drugs at the event also leads to removal. Please respect our regulations.

Lost & Found

Found items can be brought to the merchandise- and info stand, which can be found in the entrance hall. Have you lost something? During event you can check the merchandise- and info stand.
