. What can I find at the festival ?

The Overkill festival presents an exhibition with interactive and digital art, video games and installation, workshops, a film program, live music, performances, and symposium/dinner.

. Is there drinks and food at the festival ?

The Overkill is hosted at Sickhouse, where a bar with all kind of drinks are available, from coffee to cocktails.
On the weekend of the festival there will be a small catering service serving snacks and cakes.

. Is the festival accessible for everyone ?

The Overkill festival is a safe space.
We ask everyone who enters the festival to be kind and respectful to everyone else. We do not tolerate any form of sexual intimidation, discrimination and aggression. It will lead to an immediate removal from the space. Don’t hesitate to contact any of crew if you encounter any problem.
You can find our complete code of conduct here (link coming soon).


The main exhibition of the festival is hosted at Sickhouse which is sadly only accessible via stairs. Sensomnia, the opening after party in Metropool and the symposium dinner are accessible to wheelchairs. A part of the program will also be accessible online via our Youtube channel.


Sensomnia is a multi sensory rave, created in collaboration with deaf and hard of hearing colleagues. It is our intention to make the event as welcoming as possible for everyone, making sure we have enough interpreters to welcome you.


If you have a question regarding accessibility don’t hesitate to contact Niels via mail : niels@theoverkill.nl


The Overkill festival is for everyone. Children are also welcome under the supervision of adults. The evening and night program is for 18 +.
