In Drenthe, festival goers at the Baggelhuizerplas in Assen can reach the festival grounds on bus line 20, which will depart every 15 minutes from the Assen station and will have an additional stop near the pond starting at 11 a.m. and ending after midnight. A bus will depart from Smilde-Dieverbrug twice an hour, and there will be one bus an hour between Dieverburg/Dwingeloo/Diever and Meppel. The Emmen city bus lines will also be running extra buses throughout the day.
Extra busses on the Q-link and Qliner lines will run from 11 a.m. until after midnight to and from the Groningen Liberation Day Festival: Qliner 300 from Emmen and Qlinter 304 from Drachten will be departing for Groningen every ten minutes, and Qliner 309 from Assen will depart every 15 minutes. Qliner 312 will also run every 15 minutes after the festival ends around midnight.
