Festival Entrance

2.Dh5 is a donation based. We ask for a voluntary donation of €5,- at the door and we serve vegan food at cost prices. There is no pre-sale of ‘tickets’.

Make sure to bring cash (not PIN), for the lunch (donation based), drinks and dinner tickets.

Solidarity fund

For those who need financial support to visit the festival (i.e. for travel expenses), we have a solidarity fund that can (partly or fully) compensate you for those costs.
This will be on a first come first serve basis, but we’ll make sure there are funds available on both days. Would you like to make use of this solidarity fund: ask us at the info stand.
Donations to fill up the pot are welcomed equally!

Food & drinks

A cooking crew will serve organic vegan lunch and dinner at cost prices.

Press, own- & social media

The activities during the festival are not freely accessible to journalists. We ask anybody who would like to make recordings – text, audio, or video – to go to the 2.Dh5 info booth by the entrance for details. Any complains about press conduct can be brought to the info booth as well. Please also refrain from tagging individuals or posting images where individuals can be identified.

Sleeping spaces

For folks who want to stay for the night: A sleeping space has been arranged for Friday and Saturday night in Amsterdam. To reserve, send an email to, and remember to bring your own sleeping bag and sleeping mat.


Sessions will be held either Dutch or English. For each workshop the primary language will be announced in the programme. We will provide a whispering-translation-corner at each event for those who don’t speak English, or Dutch.

Access Note

This access note is inspired by Casco’s access

Physical Access

The main entrance for the festival is accessible from the courtyard via the large iron staircase from Thorn Prikkerstraat and by the elevator/lift located to the lower right of the stairs.

Wheelchair Access

The entrance to the elevator is underneath the stairs and is accessible from Jan Eisenioeffeistraat. The lift can also be accessed from the main courtyard by descending down gradual even steps, but this way does not provide consistent arm rail support or ramp access. From the lift, you can enter the main central space, which is on the 2nd floor.

Most of the sessions are on the same floor as the main hall. On that floor is also an accessible toilet.

The ‘yellow room’ sessions and the chill area are on the 3th floor. There is a chair lift on the stairs from the 2nd floor to the 3th floor. We will have someone at the lift to assist before and after sessions.

Unfortunately there is no lift to descend to the 1st floor. But there is an entrance to the 1st floor from Chris Lebeaustraat.

A map with directions will be provided at the info stand of the festival. And because this note is indeed only a note – please get in touch directly with us at to coordinate specific forms of assistance and support in advance. 

In consideration of our visitors with multiple chemical sensitivities and autoimmune illnesses, we kindly ask that you do not wear a fragrance during your visit to the festival.

Low sensory space
We will have multiple areas of the building where you can take space and relax; we will also have a low sensory/stimuli space. 

Service dogs, support animals & companions are all welcomed. 

This year, we will provide good ventilation, and further, we expect our visitors to keep appropriate distance. Masks are not mandatory, but are encouraged.


For those who have difficulty participating in the festival due to this situation, we have started a podcast where we will post appropriate sessions after the festival: podcast.


For this edition will we spend extra attention to make the festival more familiy friendly.

There we will be a separate children’s space with (with care selected) volunteers. And we’ll also designate space within the venues for mamas, papas & small humans if they so wish. 


Parents and guardians of the new generation of world changers! 

Don’t leave your kids at home this year, there will be childcare again during the 2Dh5 festival. In a separate room in Ru Pare, volunteers will be ready to entertain kids during 2Dh5 sessions. 

What can you expect from us?

  • Volunteers who babysit are chosen with care.
  • The place where children stay is safe, accessible and appropriately equipped for children.
  • There will be plenty of toys so that children of different ages can have fun. 
  • There is someone present in the building with a (Children’s) First Aid certificate.
  • We will make a note of the parent/carer’s phone number so that we can call if anything is wrong.
  • Healthy snacks will be available.
  • Supplies for the hygiene and care of kids are provided.

There is a maximum number of children, depending on the number of volunteers present. The guideline for this is the occupational force-child ratio (BKR) as prescribed by the GGD.

Because we work with volunteers, instead of qualified pedagogical staff, we work with a lower maximum. Specifically, a volunteer can be responsible for:

  • a maximum of 1 baby;
  • a maximum of 2 children aged 1 to 2; 
  • a maximum of 3 children aged 2 to 4 years; 
  • a maximum of 4 children aged 4 to 6; 
  • a maximum of 5 children aged 7 and above. 

The maximum number of children we cater for per session is 6, following the legal requirements for childcare, which stipulate that a childcare centre should have at least 3.5 m² of play space per child. The room we have at our disposal is 20m².

How it works.

Reception is organised per 75-minute session. Signing up can be done in two ways:

Want to be assured of a spot during a specific 2Dh5 session? Register your child in advance for a time slot, by sending an email to

You may of course sign your child up for multiple sessions. If it concerns consecutive sessions, parents/carers should take care of their own kids during the break(s).  

Would you rather check on the day itself whether your child wants to attend the 2Dh5 care? No problem, there is a sign-up list at the reception location to register your child for a time slot. Small chance that it is already full by then.

Private space for milk expressing

There is a private room, the “Orange room”, for expressing milk. Look it up on the floor plan, or ask us where to find it at the info-stand. 


Please also show solidarity with our youngest comrades and their parenting crew; while we will have a separate children’s space, we’re also designating space within the classrooms for mamas, papas & small humans if they so wish.

Other needs

In an ideal world 2.Dh5 would be fully accessible to everyone. Sadly this is not possible due tor our limited funds, and the limitations of the venue. Nonetheless, if you have any specific access needs, please don’t hesitate to ask us, or get in touch via and we will do our best to come to a suitable arrangement.

Also if you have any other questions concerning accessibility at 2.Dh5, of if you have any comments of tips, we’d love to hear from you.
