We love Kasteel de Berckt for this creation, the garden, facilities, and cooperation with the owners make this the ideal situation. On our website you can find an overview of what we love so much here.
The core of the festival program consists of Ecstatic Dance. Of course we’re adding just the right elements to deepen and enhance your festival experience. We wish to take you on a journey – your journey, since every Ecstatic Dance will differ from the other. Our aim is to create a magical space for discovering new dance-forms, connecting with others in new ways, experiencing healing touch, being part of intimate concerts and having acces to yogaclasses, breathing exercises and meditation. There will also be a grand party night and enough “free” time to take for yourself.
To be sure we can hold the space together we have limited our tickets to a maximum of 300. For every event we offer true our newsletter a discount ticket to our followers as soon they are online. This year we changed the ticket options to accommodate you better. Everyone will buy the “basic” ticket and can add a ticket for a room of your choice.
If the castle is sold out there are only camping spots left until all tickets have been sold.
Looking back at the first Ecstatic Dance festival Holland we are pleased with our decision that our festival will thrive more without our beloved offspring. Our experience has taught us the responsibilities involved when children participate in a festival. We realize that both parents and the organization may have to center too much on the well-being of our children and thereby loose focus on our main goal: realizing a most powerful festival. We thus invite all mums and dads to find a great solution for the kids and claim the necessary “me” time for some days.
The festival is organized by Kareem Raïhani and the Chocolate Club. Years of experience, both as DJ’s and organizers, cultivated the cherished dream of creating an intimate as well as encompassing festivals, together with a dedicated team.
GOOD TO KNOW
When renting a room/ bed in the castle, bedlinnen is included. Bringing a yoga mat and pillow for the concerts and meditative moments is advisable.

Ecstatic Dance – 3 Simple Guidelines
1. We Dance without shoes (or: We Dance Barefoot)
This allows us to connect more fully with the Ground (socks are OK)
If you have a physical condition that you need dance shoes, then OK
2. We Dance without words (or: We Dance with Body Language)
This makes it easier to be in a Meditative State
No Verbal Instruction from the Facilitators
No Talking from the Dancers
3. We Dance as We Are
No Drugs/Alcohol, No Phones, No Camera/Video, No Scents, No Expectations, No Judgements, No Shoulds, No Oughts… Just Be Yourself; With Respect for Ourselves, the Space, and One Another.
