In 2021, Haltpop will return to the grounds of Topsportcentrum de Koog in Koog aan de Zaan, right next to train station Zaandijk Zaanse Schans, to celebrate "Fifteen Years of Noise".
The festival grounds are located in the center of Zaanstad and can be reached perfectly by bike. From Zaandam the easiest way is to follow the N203. Cycle on until you reach station Zaandijk Zaanse schans, and turn left twice to see the festival appear on your right hand side.
Another possibility is to go through the bicycle tunnel at station Koog aan de Zaan and to cycle through Westerkoog (please respect the safety and peace of people living in the area!). Cycling from Zaandam to Haltpop will take you approximately 15 minutes.
From the previous festival grounds it is also fairly easy to cycle to Haltpop.
Cross the Delft by the bicycle bridge and turn left onto the Veenpolderdijk. Follow the Veenpolderdijk until the old water tower. Cross the bridge and cycle on through Westzaan, parallell to the N515. Cycle onto the Guispad. Turn left, and go under the Coentunnelweg (A8). Turn right onto the Guisweg and again onto the Wezelstraat. The festival can be seen after about a minute at your right hand side.
Haltpop can be reached easily by public transportation.
The train line from Zaandam is cancelled due to track renovations. However, because of the high number of expected visitors to and from Haltpop, buses will depart twice every fifteen minutes throughout the day. Buses travel between Zaandam and Uitgeest and stop at about a 3 minutes' walk from Haltpop.
Close to the festival grounds several bus stops can be found. A number of Connexxion bus lines halt here, including lines 64, 69 and N94.
From the A8 you take exit Zaandijk to the right onto the N203. Turn left after station Zaandijk Zaanse Schans (first left) and again onto the Wezelstraat. The festival grounds can be seen on the right side.
From the A9 you take exit Castricum/Zaanstad to the left onto the N203 towards Zaanstad. Follow this road until you reach station Zaandijk Zaanse Schans and turn right and left onto the Wezelstraat. The festival grounds will be on your right hand side.
Haltpop urges all drivers to be responsible: Don't drink and drive! No special parking spots are available for Haltpop. A so-called "Kiss and Ride" area is also not available. We request drivers to pick a safe and quiet spot to park or when dropping of passengers.
