The gala takes place at EM2, at the sugar factory terrain in Groningen.

We recommend to check the route before you leave, it can be a bit confusing if you don’t know the area. The address of EM2 is: Suikerlaan 6, 9743 DA Groningen, The Netherlands.

By car

By car the area is easy to reach. From the Julianaplein, take the N370 in the direction of Zuidhorn. Take the second exit (“Hoendiep”) and then on the roundabout take the second exit. Then continue towards the big brick tower, EM2 will be on your left.

Please keep in mind that most car navigation systems do not know this road. We recommend you to use google maps or an other online route planner.

There are free parking spots next to EM2.

By foot or bike

For pedestrians and bikes there’s  a bridge across the Hoendiep to the sugar factory area.

From the city centre, ride along Hoendiep until you pass under the highway and see the McDonalds. Then turn left, towards the gas station. Keep following the water until the road bends to the right. You’ll see an open gate straight ahead. Go through this gate and across the bridge to get to the sugar factory area. Then head left towards the big brick tower, and then you’ll be able to see EM2

During our gala there will also be an other event (Paradigm). There might be security guards at the bridge asking you to park your bike there. If you tell them you are not there for Paradigm, but for the student dance gala in EM2, they should allow you to continue by bike.

Do you need a bike? You can rent cheap OV-bikes at the train station. Or if you use our bed & breakfast, you can ask your host if they have an extra bike.

Party bus

We are trying to realize a shuttle bus from Amsterdam to Groningen. From the Amsterdam Beginners Competition (De KnuffelCup) to to take you directly from Amsterdam to our gala! More information will follow soon.
