What safety measures should be followed?
Due to the current context, additional safety measures are applied and will be strictly enforced:
- Only artificial weapons (sword, dagger ...) made of plastic or latex are allowed on the festival site. They are totally forbidden during the concerts (they can be left at the cloakroom). Metallic weapons bought on the festival will be packed by the seller and cannot be unpacked on the site.
- Wearing mask is tolerated inside the festival but the access to the festival must be done with uncovered face.
- Bags at the entrance will be systematically controlled. This might thus generate additional waiting lines. We therefore advise you to avoid bags.
In case of unforeseen situation, in accordance to the principle of precaution, safety officers will take decisions and always have the last word. If you are denied access for security reasons, no refund will be possible.
- Security checks will be carried out on both sites : the Lotto Mons Expo and the Micx.
Trolls & Legends wants to maintain good relations with its neighbourhoods . Any inappropriate behavior on the site or in the surrounding area is to be avoided and could lead to a definitive exclusion of the festival. No refunds will be possible.

Yes, but the purchase of a book on site remains necessary to join the signing lines.
