Shuttle bus

HARDFEST is located at walking distance from Station Enschede Kennispark (formerly Enschede Drienerlo). So you don’t need a shuttle bus. In just a few minutes you are on the festival grounds. And you can start your ‘area tour’ right there.


If you come by taxi to HARDFEST, make sure the taxi driver follows the signs ‘Taxi’ to the taxi stand. This is within walking distance of the festival site. When you leave the festival site, the taxis are waiting at the special taxi stand.


HARDFEST is easily accessible by train. The railway station Enschede Kennispark (formerly Drienelo) is a 10 minute walk from the University of Twente, the festival site. Therefore there are no shuttle buses.

Set out prepared:

  • Plan your journey in advance on the 9292 website.
  • Check in time whether you can still make your connection. It can be crowded. Therefore, for the return journey, do not gamble on the last train, but take an earlier train. As much as we understand that you want to stay until the very last moment…
  • When travelling, keep an eye on the digital screens and public announcements at stations and on trains for up-to-date information.
