Move over, Belgian Rail: Daydream Festival will this year have its own station.

Daydream – the country’s second-largest dance music event, after Tomorrowland – has a railway line running through its festival grounds, in Lommel, Limburg, and says for 2017 it decided to “cut out the middle man” and construct a temporary railway station on site.

Two trains will depart from Antwerp and Hasselt on Saturday 8 April, coupling in Mol and travelling “as one party train” – dubbed the Daydream Express – to the festival station, returning the same evening.

“Why dream small if you can dream big?”

Festival promoter Roel Berens explains: “We encourage our visitors as much as possible to come to the festival in a sustainable way. Our ‘daydreamers’ already score very well in this area, but this year we were still looking for an extra boost. And why dream small if you can dream big?

“We decided to just cut out the middle man, the station and Lommel, and build our own, right on the festival grounds. As soon as you step on the Daydream Express you have already started your adventure.”

There are 450 tickets available for the trains, which will be hosted by Vibestr, described by Berens as “one of the most successful party concepts in Flanders”.
