Don’t panic, you can request your tickets easily through the website of Stager.

I cannot come to CaDansa anymore. Can I get my money back?

Oh no, we’re gonna miss you :(. You can offer your ticket on Ticketswap, so you can make someone else happy with your ticket. It might also help to tell people on our Facebook event that you’re selling your ticket.

I've sold my ticket to someone else, now what?

Glad that you made it possible for someone else to come to CaDansa! You don’t have to let us know about the change, because Ticketswap and Stager communicate automatically, so it’s all taken care of!

I have another question, where can I find more information?

For questions about your order you can contact Stager through their website. For questions about the festival itself you can see whether we answered your question in the FAQ. If not, you can contact us through questions@cadansa.nl.

Yes, of course you can. Volunteers are more than welcome. You can find more information about volunteering at our volunteerspage. Contact us if you have more questions.


Where will the festival be held?

CaDansa will take place in Steenwijk, at the Rabo Theater de Meenthe.

Steenwijk? How do I get there?

Steenwijk has a train station that is connected to most big cities in The Netherlands (Amsterdam, Utrecht, Groningen). There is parking space around the theater. You can find more information on how to get there and on transportation in the Netherlands at the page ‘How to get there‘.


Where can I sleep?

We’ve listed a lot of accommodations on our accommodations page. With some of those locations we even made a special CaDansa-deal!

Is there a special festival location to sleep, like there used to be in Duiven?

We have some locations you can book here, with CaDansa, at the same time as your ticket. We have some group accommodations and single and double rooms for 1 or 2 persons. More information is to be found at our accommodationspage.

I found some place else to sleep that you didn't recommend, should I do something?

Glad to hear that you found a place to sleep! If you want to tell about it, just send en email to questions@cadansa.nl


Is it possible to join a workshop without visiting the festival?

No, it’s not possible to buy only a ticket for workshops. A day ticket gives entrance to the workshops of that day, a full festival or weekend ticket gives entrance to all workshops.

Which workshops will be on the program?

We’ll have a lot of workshops to choose from. For some of them you have to register beforehand, for most of them you don’t have to register. You can find the program for workshops here.


Can I buy food at the festival?

Yes, there will be food stands again, including vegetarian, vegan, and gluten / lactose free options. More information on the catering will be announced at a later date.

Children and CaDansa

I have a baby, is there a place where I can feed my child?

Yes, we’ll have a place available for you to feed your child. Extra bonus: the room is close to the music workshops, so you might be accompanied by the lovely sounds of hurdy-gurdy, bagpipes, accordeon or other instruments playing. CaDansa doesn’t have a fridge available for keeping milk cold, but you are allowed to bring your own coolbox for this purpose.

Can I bring my kids?

Kids are very welcome! Kids younger than 14 years old can enter for free. They do have to be under supervision of an adult (18+).

Is there furniture especially for kids, like chairs or beds?

No, there is no furniture especially for kids, like chairs or beds. We recommend you bring your own, or try to make other arrangements.

I’m a musician and I’d like to perform (with our band) at CaDansa, is that possible?

You can always contact us. Leave us your name and information and who knows: maybe you’ll be playing for us next CaDansa!
