CAN WE CRASH AT THE VENUE?
Yes sure.But it is roughing it – you will need to bring your own bedroll and camping mattress. Pillow is good too. And there’s no shower.But most people usually take short naps and freshen up in the bathroom over the 48 hours.
FREE FOOD AND DRINKS?
Yep – five meals over three days and beer, wine, sodas’ fresh juices, etc.Load of good, strong coffee and tea. And fruits galore – to keep the energy levels up.It’s not all Red Bull and chips, we like healthy food too. At the last Hacked in Groningen event we made made the breakfast and lunches ourselves and ordered in Pizza on opening night and really great authentic Chinese from Ni Hao, Groningen’s most famous Asian restaurant.
