WHEN AND WHERE
Saturday, April 1
FACTS Spring Edition 2017
The magic starts at 21.00h
Reality returns at midnight
in Flanders Expo, Ghent
Where does the party take place?
Flanders Expo, Ghent. Address: Maaltekouter 1, 9050 Sint-Denijs-Westrem. The Q&A Hall will be the place to be!
What are the opening hours?
The party starts at 9 pm (21.00h). The doors will open around 20.30h.
How do I enter?
Go to the Q&A room if you’re already at FACTS and go to the revolving door near the VIP/Press entrance if you haven’t visited FACTS.
Where do I park?
The usual parking spots of Flanders Expo. Beware: check the hours of public transportation!
Is there a minimum age for this party?
Yes: 15. Anyone above it is welcome. We will only serve alcohol to people who are 18 or older, though.
I already have a FACTS ticket for Saturday. What do I do?
Get the The Sequel Party ticket! Now you can have the joys of your previously bought ticket AND the FACTS after-party. Note that you can only use the The Sequel Party ticket if you already own a Saturday FACTS ticket. It’s NOT a standalone ticket.
And don’t forget that the opening hours on Saturday have changed. You can now enjoy FACTS from 10 am (9 am for VIP’s and Priority Entry’s) until 9 pm. That’s two hours longer!
Is there a ‘Combo Ticket’ for FACTS and the after-party?
In a sense. You have two options.
- You either get a Saturday ticket and get the The Sequel Party ticket as an add-on.
- OR you buy a Saturday NIGHT Ticket, but that only grants you access to FACTS between 18h and 21h + party.
Can I skip the FACTS event and only do the after-party?
We don’t know why you would, but yes you can! Just buy a ‘Saturday Night Ticket’ and you’re good to go. Although you can also use it to visit FACTS between 6 pm and 9 pm if you so please.
Can I buy a ticket at the door of the after-party?
Yes, you can. Unless the tickets are sold out, of course. Keep an eye on the site and our social media!
Are the new tickets available in Game Mania or other stores?
No, you can only buy them online and at the doors. Provided that they’re not sold out in presales, of course!
I have a problem with my tickets. What do I do?
Send us an e-mail! [email protected]
What kind of music will be played?
Multiple fandom references, cool theme song remixes and other FACTS-related ear candy. As the climax of the night, we hold the door for Mr. Kristian Nairn’s Rave of Thrones: The Rebirth, in which Hodor himself will bombard you with – mainly – danceable progressive house. Visit his website for more info: http://www.kristiannairn.com/.
Can we bring our cosplay weapons with us?
We will only allow the weapons that were approved for FACTS by the weapon check crew in Hall 8. To ensure fast passage to the party hall (Q&A Room), we will not have a weapon check booth at the entrance of the party.
Can I go outside once I’ve entered the party?
Sure, but you won’t be allowed back in… Don’t worry, there will be a small area in between the halls where you can take a breather.
Will there be alcohol?
Yes, there will be enough mead, wine, beer and cocktails for you to ‘imitate a spewing dragon’. Just don’t go spewing on our floor, thank you very much.
Can I smoke inside the halls?
No, you cannot.
Is the party ‘wheelchair accessible’?
Yes! Let those wheels spin on the dancefloor!
I need personal helpers because of my disability. Do they need to buy tickets too?
For the party, yes. Not for the FACTS event prior to the party, though, provided that you can show that you really need them with you.
What if I have an accident at FACTS?
Then we’ll take you to the first aid station and you get a kiss from the nurse (or we call the ambulance if it is serious, of course). FACTS is not responsible; however, we’ll do our utmost to help you as much as we can.
What happens to lost property?
They are ground up to make Jabba the Hutt food. No, actually, we give them first to the police, who have an office at the entrance of the exhibition. They keep lost stuff for a while afterwards. Calling 09 266 61 11 is often enough to check if they’ve found your backpack.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT?
1. One of the best cosplay parties ever
FACTS has always been a great supporter of and platform for cosplayers, so expect to see once-in-a-lifetime scenes. This is probably the only party in Belgium where you can see Wonder Woman and Luffy dancing with Daryl Dixon and a T-Rex.
2. The FACTS formula, but in party form
There will be loads of activities during the party, you will get to see the famous actor Kristian Nairn do his thing, the party hall will be packed with cosplayers and you’ll never ever be bored. Lots of diversity, tons of fun!
3. Hours of diverse music with dozens of fandom references
Get funky with cool remixes of famous TV, movie and gaming themes and go crazy with DJ Kristian Nairn’s Rave of Thrones: The Rebirth set!
4. Fantastic and unique memories
Geek until you’re weak with thousands of like-minded fellow fans!
5. Experience fandom like never before
This is a whole new way to experience FACTS. Don’t miss this perfect cherry on the FACTS pie!
