Spoor Oost


StuDay is the absolute reference for students at the start of the academic year.

On Thursday 29th September, we will be focusing our activities on Spoor Oost and will kick off the academic year with a bang! Tanned, with holiday stories and a host of expectations for the new year.

Don’t share your stories online, but live in our chill zone. Enjoy (hopefully) the last warm rays of the Indian Summer while embracing your friends again. Drool over sharing dishes and flirt with new faces. And all that against the background of funky beatsby live bands and DJs.

Welcome back!

Welcome back! In ’t Stad, at StuDay and at STAN.


Absolutely free of charge for all students (you do have to book your free ticket)


Thursday 29 September

14h – 22h


Spoor Oost, Antwerpen


Say goodbye, vaccination centre! See you around, Sinksenfoor! Because he-e-re comes StuDay! Yes, the trendiest event of the year will be happening for the 19th time at the über-cool urban location of Spoor Oost. Trust us, that’s what it is!

In the shadow of the Schijnpoort, a stone’s throw from the Sportpaleis, Lotto Arena and Trix, you’ll find 10 hectares of former wasteland that now plays host to four mighty and historic train carriages.

And between the items from our industrial railway past, you can skate, play football and enjoy a picnic – in other words, it’s party-time! Officially, you’ll find yourself along Noordersingel in Borgerhout. But we know better: this is the home of StuDay!

Is there any life beyond music?

Music is life – but it can also be lots of other things, too. Waddya say about that?


Partying is fun; but it’s even more fun when you can do it in a safe environment. So we hope you all take care of each other. But should anything happen that you don’t like, remember that you can always head to our safe-space.

And that can be for any reason:

  • Maybe you’ve lost contact with your friends
  • Or you’re suddenly feeling unwell, because you’ve had too much to drink or have taken drugs
  • Perhaps you’ve been the victim of some form of behaviour you cannot and will not tolerate
  • Or could it be a sudden panic attack
  • etc.

Whatever – you’ll be safe with us and we won’t judge you for what’s happened.


Had enough alcohol, running low on funds or suddenly feeling dehydrated? Then get yourself to one of the three water bars at StuDay. Thanks to our partner, Waterlink, you’ll find free drinking water everywhere.

"Studentenharmonie” says welcome!

As soon as you walk into the festival grounds you are blown away by music. Quite literally, too, because a band full of horns and other real instruments will immediately put you in the party mood with their rousing music.

And then also grab your chance to immortalise your irresistible presence at the event with our photobooth, which includes a range of props and gadgets. Don’t delay, because you really will look irresistible!


Ready to totally step out of your comfort zone? Then sign up for some improvisation theatre with our students. We’re not giving anything away, but if the combo of stick-on tattoos, dino cakes and dinosaur suits doesn’t drive you wild, we don’t know what will.

Mirror, mirror on the wall!

Head for Academie Verbist or the Stedelijk Lyceum Olympiade stand for a session of make-up or hairstyling and feel like the queen bee or the king of all you survey.


This one is really crazy!!! Admit it: you’ve been dreaming of this for years, haven’t you? Clamber aboard a real rodeo bull and hold on for the longest time before plunging into the party scene.

And the entertainment just goes on and on. Chill with some friends at some virtual pub sports, get your legs swinging at the Just Dance Championship or unleash your inner Britney or Harry with a spot of karaoke.

For those who can’t resist and really want to enjoy the fun of the fair (we’ve finally reached the site of the Sinksenfoor), head to Foor United. Throw a basketball or go nuts on the grappling machines.


But partying doesn’t have to stop at 10 pm for everyone, of course. So, the wonderful news for those who still want to keep going, Club Aura is still hosting the official StuDay afterparty when all the other party-poopers have gone home.

Club what? Well, Club Aura is a brand-new club that will be opening its doors on Saturday 24th September, at the same location where IKON used to be (Kotterstraat).

And you know what’s even better? You all get in for free with your STUDAY wristband. Don’t have a wristband? Then simply pay €5 at the door.

Move over for a make-over

In cooperation with Verbist Hairdressing Institute Academy and Stedelijk Lyceum Olympiade (known for their hair, nail and make-up skills).

A new academic year is the perfect time for a new look. In our beauty cabins , students of various beauty schools will pamper you so that you can start the new academic year looking great.

Try braids that will make famous insta bloggers instantly jealous and wind everyone around your finger with your perfect smoky eyes (read: instant killer look).

And as if that’s not enough: become a work of art yourself. Thanks to impressive body painters, your body will become something to frame. Put yourself literally on a pedestal, pose against the backdrop of the MAS and shine like a bright star.

In short, we’ve got you covered!

StuDay Goes Green
Let’s not beat around the bush…

An event for 15,000 visitor has an impact on the environment. Transport, logistics, power – it has an impact. Step by step we’re working on making StuDay a more sustainable event.

Reusable cups

We serve all drinks in reusable cups. You buy a cup and a drink at the bar and pay a deposit of 2 euros for the cup. You only pay this once. When you order a new drink, you get it in the same cup. When you leave StuDay, you exchange your cup back at the till and get your 2 euros cash back.

Less and better separated waste on site

We reduce the amount of waste with the reusable cups and ask our food partners to serve their delicacies on biodegradable material instead of plastic.

Walking and cycling

Park East (Spoor Oost) is easy to get to using public transport and/or shared transport systems. Find your ideal match at And, oh yes, because there’s plenty of bike parking space, there’s no reason to leave your own trusty steel steed at home.

And there’s even more!

Our mobility partner, Go Sharing, always goes the extra mile and will get you to our urban party land with ease. Check the FAQs for more information.

GreenMobiblity, GO Sharing & Velo Antwerpen will also be happy to tell you more in our sustainable mobility village. And there, by the way, you can also have your own bike checked out at our bike repair shop.

Bike repair shop

Come to StuDay on your own bike and drop it off at the Bike Repair Shop in our bicycle parking. While you’re dancing around, your bike gets some TLC. On the menu: pumped up tyres, a check of your brake pads and lights and an oiled chain.

However… first come, first served.

We offer this service until capacity permits.

Drop off your bike at 2 pm and pick it up before 11 p.m.
