Maastricht Aachen Airport (MST) is a local regional airport. This is by far the most convenient airport to fly into, but may not be a possibility depending on where you are travelling from.
FROM MAASTRICHT AIRPORT: Line 30 buses depart from the airport on an hourly basis, with the journey lasting about 20 minutes and costing €2.
FROM AMSTERDAM SCHIPHOL AIRPORT: Take the train to Utrecht Central (32 minutes), then transfer to another train to Maastricht (2 hours). From here the venue is a 13 minute walk north.
Maastricht Railway Station is accessible from most European cities but may require a transfer along the way. The venue is a 10 minute walk north from the station.
There is no age restriction on this event, though anyone under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. Those up to 12 are free.
The powder is safe for most people; however, those who suffer from asthma are advised not to attend the festival.
Bringing your own powder is prohibited: the powder used at the festival has been specifically developed to respect the natural environment and to be safe for human contact.
You can get it directly at the festival area. If you get it with the ticket, you will be able to pick it up at the colors stands after entering the festival.
