Practical information

Meeting point 

For the three days of the festival, Begijnhofpark is the eye of the DANSSTORM! A place where artists and audience can meet each other, where you can talk about what you have seen over a beer and where you can find our info point for all your questions.

Festival plan 

If you would like a handy overview of all the dance initiatives, you can obtain the DANSSTORM festival plan with map and explanation from our volunteers at every location. You can recognise the volunteers by their T-shirt and DANSSTORM masks.

Public toilets

There are a lot of public toilets in Kortrijk. For an up to date overview of toilet facilities, download the HogeNood app. The app shows you where the nearest public toilet is, whether it is wheelchair accessible or if there is a baby-changing station, etc.
