the official site sais 4 december..
Oh no, I meant we can buy tickets for Werchter while we are waiting untill we can buy them for Pinkpop.

Not that we can buy them right now, but you know, during the coming months, we can buy Werchter tickets.

Sorry, I didn't put that very clear.

You're right, selling starts coming Saturday :dance:

the coldplay website shows ticket prices, and it says 75 for the day 150 for the weekend, but bare in mind that starting januari there might be a tax raise on concert tickets which will probably add about 10 euro's to each price...

curse the government... :dozey:


edit: I should credit my great friend who woke me with a text at 6:45 to tell me the coldplay news... ow don't they know me well...

Yes, Pinkpop have day tickets. But limited to 15.000 I think.

Just heard that both Elbow and the arcade fire are likely to play pinkpop.. I'm really loving it!

^ I heard a rumor about that too! If Arcade Fire is coming then I'm definitely going to Pinkpop instead of Op'ener... :wacky:

Hi everybody!
I´m considering going to this festival.
Is there anyone who knows the area?
I´ve just learnt that you can´t camp when you buy only the one-day ticket.
What does the festival area look like, is there any affordable hotel/hostel close enough to go after the concert (without a car)?
Any tips?
Thank you!

I've worked at the festival last year. I think the best place to look for a hotel is Maastricht, it's much bigger than Landgraaf (so more hotels). You can take the bus from the festival to the train station, the last train to Maastricht leaves at 00:37 (maybe even later because of Pinkpop).
The festival area has two stages and a big tent.

Thanks!
So you think we will be able to get anywhere by train/bus after the concert?
But we´re gonna fly the day after concert either from Koln or Dusseldorf, so Maastricht is the opposite direction.
I´ll try to work out if we could get e.g. to Aachen after concert.

Well, there are no late trains to Aachen :cry:

Another question -
what time do the concerts usually end?
Is it all over by 1 AM or so?
Because at our festival there are smaller concerts all through the night, so maybe we could just wait for the first morning train, if there is anything happening the whole night...

I think it ends around 11 pm if I remember correctly, so maybe you can catch a train to Aachen.

The last train to Aachen is at 22,34 :cry:
So it is all closed by midnight and nothing more to do there?

There is some kind of party on the camping area, that's about it.

Well, we will see.
I searched for hotels in the Landgraaf area but they all seem to be booked out already.
Maybe it would be easier to buy the 3-day ticket and camp...
