Easy to get to - I used the tram and then walked down the road. The concert was great. The sound and lighting was great. The stadium was packed and had a great atmosphere. Was surprised that I was not searched on entry. Frequent buses...More

Went to forest national for the il divo consert. I have to say it was a disaster. There is no air-conditioning and the temperature outside was 32 degrees.Inside the arena it was more than the that. People were really struggling and many people, including myself,...More

We attended a concert here in February 2017 and it was very organised. For those who want to queue early in the day security operated a very fair system so that those who had waited longest were able to enter the venue first.

We have been joining the ballett NUTCRACKER on 24th January 2016. I was very astonished that Colruyt parking places beside the location were not offered. Part of the seats were completely closed because not sold out. No heating, toilet very dirty but 50 cents :-(...More

Very nice building, easily accessible from basically every part of town. We have been here for the System of a Down concert, and while the event was sold out (8.000 tickets, the arena was completely full!) staff was very helpful and let everyone inside quickly....More

Cheap seating, emergency exit lighting disturbs view for rows, very little parking, hall is not very attractive. Difference between higher price seats and lower is minimal. Public transit access only by bus because venue is in suburbs. Acoustics ok.

Was there during the farewell concert of Vaya Con Dios (Dani Klein) The concert was great. But the hall was terrible. The airconditioning was totally insufficient. The doors, used by late comers and early leavers, were very noisy. The seats small and uncomfortable. If it...More
