Qstock is located on the Kuusisaari and Raatti islands in Oulu. The festival area is not accessible by car. You can get to the festival via Merikoski bridges by using public transport or through Linnansaari Island on foot. A bike is the most convenient option for getting to the festival, for you can leave your bike at our bike parking zone in Linnansaari. There is a permanent taxi stand in Rantakatu.
You can enter the VIP area from the south end of Raatti Sports Centre along the inside of the stadium. Please observe the signs for the correct route. Also the Guest Check-in desk and the VIP cloakroom can be found along the VIP entrance route.
You can help prevent the build-up of queues for example by exchanging your ticket for a wristband in advance, by arriving early and by leaving any forbidden items at home or in the cloakroom. Should you get stuck in a queue for a while despite these precautions, please remember to maintain safe distances and a positive festival mood!

In our VIP area, we have a return system for drink cans and bottles. After you have enjoyed your drink, you can reclaim your deposit by returning the container at a Qstock bar, or exchange it for a new drink, in which case the deposit is deducted from your next purchase.
Our bar areas also feature separate deposit return desks for returning empty cans. Maximum return number is 8 containers at a time. This does not apply to water, soft drink or ED bottles (the price does not include a deposit).
Paying at Qstock sales desks, for example at the festival bars, is possible only by mobile or card payment. Paying in cash is not forbidden at other operators’ sales spots, but please favour mobile or card payments in them, too.
At Qstock bars, the deposit for drink containers is returned directly to the charge card. This will take approx. two bank days.
