Tourist Tips in Lille Metropolis
4X4 Grand Mix card / De Kreun card
The Interreg IV project has enabled a cross-border collaboration between the concert venues of the Grand Mix in Tourcoing (France), the Quatre Écluses in Dunkirk (France), the 4AD in Diksmuide (Belgium) and De Kreun in Kortrijk (Belgium). Their joint effort has resulted in the creation of a one card giving discount rates at all venues : the 4X4 Card.
This personal card is valid for a year at the four venues and grants access to :
- a minimum discount of 3€ for every concert ticket purchased,
- three free concerts per year (during opening season),
... and many more surprises and gifts depending on your partner venue !
Price : 12€
