Registration

We believe being fully emerged in a festival for several days lifts the whole experience to an even higher level. We do however want everybody to celebrate with us, so we offer day passes as well.

How to register

Step 1:

Create a new account or login to your existing account.

If your password does not work, click on ‘Forgot password?’. Accounts from previous years will not work as we moved to a new registration system.

Step 2:

Click on the ‘Register’ button and select the pass you want to purchase. You can choose between a full pass or one of the party passes.

Step 3:

Check the options you want.

Step 4:

In case you want to register as a couple, add a partner by providing his/her email address. Please note that your partner must select the same type of pass.*

Step 5:

Hit the ‘Apply for registration’ button. If you registered as single, hit the ’Join waiting list’ button**

Step 6:

Once your registration is approved, you will receive an email with payment instructions using Visa, Mastercard, Bancontact/Payconiq or Ideal. When we receive your payment, your registration is secured. We kindly ask you to do your payment within 7 days, as we don't want to keep other people unnecessarily long on the waiting list.

Step 7:

Your ticket will be immediately and automatically sent to your email address.

* Do I need to register with a partner?

No. To keep the festival balanced, we do welcome an equal number of leaders and followers, and we provide spots for switch dancers. Unless you only plan to attend if both make it in, there is no real benefit to adding a partner.

** I didn't receive a payment-link after registering. Do I have to worry?

To give everyone a fair chance of getting in, we will only start processing the registrations 48 hours after the opening. This means that after you register you will not hear from us immediately. Please be patient and bear with us 🙃. We do this to maintain the quality of the festival and to emphasize the "exchange" part with a good balance between:

  • Belgian and international dancers
  • Leaders, followers and switch dancers
  • More experienced dancers and beginners

If the event isn’t sold out within these 48h, you will of course still be able to register after these two days.

Solidarity fund

Are you in a difficult financial situation and feel unable to attend GHX Nights?

We have created a fund to promote solidarity between dancers. The collected money will be used for the sole purpose of providing a discount for dancers who cannot afford to participate to this event.

If your generosity exceeds the requests received, the leftovers will be donated to the Black Lindy Hoppers Fund and Frankie Manning foundation.

Contact us at registration@gentsehoppers.com if you need financial help and together we'll find a suitable solution!

Terms and conditions

Responsibilities

We want people to feel safe and secure. We condemn any disruptive behavior against the organization or participants. People that violate the integrity of any participant will be banned from the event.

We, the organisers, can not be held accountable for any damages or loss of personal belongings. Any lost items found inside our venues during clean-up will be kept for one month after the event. A list of unclaimed items will be donated to charity.

We can not be held accountable for any injuries you might incur while attending GHX Nights. Please be safe.

Cancellation

No refund will be made in case of cancellation, unless you cannot make it due to Covid. In this case, we offer an 85% refund of the received registration payment (read our Covid-19 policy for more information about the conditions).

We don't offer a refund if you are not able to attend for other reasons. However, the passes are transferable to other dancers in the same role (leader/follower/switch). If you wish to transfer your ticket to someone else you need to inform us of the name and email address of the person whom you are selling your pass to via the email address registration@gentsehoppers.com. The other person should create an account on the website, but they do not need to register.

Failing this, no entry to the event will be granted to the person you sold the pass to.

GDPR

By attending GHX Nights you give us permission to use and publish photographs and video material taken during the event of you and your dance partner. We will not sell this media to any third parties.

All personal information provided by the participants during registration will remain confidential.
