All roads lead to Chalain – and all vehicles must be parked (free of charge) on the Base ULM de Doucier (Doucier Microlight Base) reserved for this purpose!

Free regular shuttles will safely take festival-goers to the Domaine de Chalain.
Round trips are run throughout the festival from the afternoon into the night.

Only vehicles with a special sticker (disabled visitors & campers from the Domaine de Chalain) can use the D39E, the road that leads to the Domaine.

Traffic will be managed at all access points: the D39 from Lons-le-Saunier, the D27 from Champagnole and the D27 from Clairvaux-les-Lacs.

Our advice:

Lock your vehicle, keep personal belongings out of sight, whether valuable or not. Do not leave pets in your vehicle.
Check where you’re parked before leaving the car park.
