Team Festival Travel
Festival Travel originated from a love for festivals. Over the years we have grown into a versatile team of top professionals specialized in online marketing, sales, PR, communication, e-commerce, you can hardly imagine it. This mix of qualities ensures that we are able to offer everyone the optimal festival experience. In addition to all the cool things we arrange behind the scenes for the festivals, we are of course present at the festivals themselves. So if you ever see us on the meadow, say hello and toast a beer (or two).
Ruud – Finance, E-commerce & Sales | Owner
Belongs to the senior group of the company. Ruud keeps an eye out on all fronts and fin-tech is one of his core tasks. If you refresh this page you may see a different text, because he likes a/b testing. And that half marathon should really be below 1.40, come on!
Favorite song: My First Ballet Album – Pyotr Tchaikovsky is really nice.
Favorite festival: Electric Castle! Alternative and very progressive festival. A good mix between live music, art and great parties.
Tomas – Marketing, PR & Communication | Owner
Always busy with music, festivals and holidays. Tomas organizes all our festival trains and is committed to marketing and communication as sharp as possible. Meanwhile, Tomas made the soft g a form of art and he is also a proud captain of the Serious Boaters ship. #dingdingding

Judith – PR & Communication
Judith hasn’t lived there for years, but she can’t hide her Twente descent. And she is proud of that. Judith is responsible for all PR and communication for our festivals. She is always up for drinks, cheese, fun, parties and of course: festivals. An experienced ‘Zwarte Crosser’ who is constantly expanding her festival list.

Oh, and he also likes to throw a party himself as part of DJ formation Sziget Soundsystem or his own alias Thissa.
Favorite song: Kanye West – Runaway
Favorite festival: Electric Castle! Thijs likes a light show and Electric Castle happens to be a nocturnal light paradise.

By the way, Yara herself can’t wait ’til she can throw her hands in the air again on the festival ground!
Favorite song: KREAM – Take Control
Favorite festival: Sziget is going to be Yara’s first foreign festival this summer. So it will be removed from her bucket list and put onto the favorites list!
