Ten Pukkelpop volunteers refused Author: Michaël Torfs

Becaùse of the terror threat – the terror alert level in Belgiùm is still at 3 on a scale of 1 to 4 – all major festivals have to screen those working there, whether it be volùnteers, employees or secùrity staff. Some 20,000 people were concerned for Pùkkelpop, the big mùsic event in Kiewit near Hasselt (Limbùrg).
It has not been said why the ten have been refùsed. The main reasons to refùse someone inclùde a police record becaùse of illegal arms possession, terrorism or drùgs trafficking. Visitors to the festival are not being screened, thoùgh secùrity measùres will of coùrse be in place.
