Roadburn 2017 Urban Campsite: Info (Tickets Onsale, Friday, Nov.25, 7PM CET)

Posted on Thursday, November 24th, 2016

As promised, we have some information for you regarding the urban campsite! It was such a success last year, and proved so very popular with Roadburners that the urban campsite will return for 2017!

Just as with last year, the campsite facilities will be provided by Stadscamping who have given us the following information to help you decide which option will work out best for you…

Once again, there will be Flexotels for those of you who prefer to be a bit more…indoors! In these rooms you’ll find a towel and bed linen, a table with two chairs, storage space for clothes, a power supply so you can charge your cellphone, a heater, and lights!. You’ll get your own key so you can lock your room while you’re at the festival.

There will be space for camper vans, and of course space for you to turn up and pitch your own tent or ‘Festipi’ tents (including sleeping bag and mattress) available for hire if you don’t wish to bring your own.

The main change this year is the location… It will be a similar distance to the venue from the new site, but in a different direction. The campsite located at Oisterwijksebaan, 5018 TG Tilburg, The Netherlands. It’s about 15 to 20 minutes walk from the 013 venue. From Tilburg Central Station, you can get bus 3 in the direction of St. Elizabeth hospital (St. Elizabeth Ziekenhuis) and stop at St. Jozefstraat. From there on, it’s about 5 to 7 minutes to the urban campsite.

For everybody at the campsite there will be hot showers, clean toilets, cold drinking water, free parking, free wifi, and free phone charging. If you like, you can enjoy a healthy breakfast at the urban campsite for affordable prices. Plus there is a supermarket close by and there is a bar opposite of the campsite – Cafe Zomerlust, located at Oisterwijksebaan 15, has a collection of approx. 100 different beers.

We know that many of you have been eager to get your hands on these camping tickets as it’s such a great, affordable way to experience Roadburn – and now you can!

Last year the Flexotels proved to be very popular so don’t delay if you want to get one of those for yourself!

Tickets are purchased separately to the festival ticket – but you can buy both at the same time via Ticketmaster from 7pm CET on Friday 25 November. A ticket to the campsite does not secure you entry to the festival – a couple of people thought this was the case last year!

Batushka To Hold A Dark Liturgy at Roadburn 2017

Posted on Thursday, November 24th, 2016

In late 2015, we were faced with an ominous new presence in extreme music. A year later, we still don’t really know much about the sinister Batushka, other than the sparse information they provided themselves at the very beginning – they hail from Poland, the members’ identities are not disclosed […]

Casual Nun To Deliver Downright Heavy Psych at Roadburn Festival 2017

Posted on Tuesday, November 15th, 2016

Akin to blending the sonic freak outs of legendary krautrock pioneers Ash Ra Tempel with 90’s Japanese noise mongers Up-Tight or Ohkami No Jikan, London’s Casual Nun deliver some downright heavy psych – a blown out slab of distorted, hypnotic guitar buzz, heady, effect-laden vocals, and plodding drums, everything bleary […]

Roadburn Will Finally Feel True Misery With My Dying Bride

Posted on Tuesday, November 15th, 2016

Honestly, we cannot really express in full what it means to us to finally have such a pillar of doom metal gracing a Roadburn stage. And we know you understand – after all, My Dying Bride mean a hell of a lot to all of us, staff, audience and bands. […]

Valborg Will Return To Roadburn And Continue To Haunt Our Most Morbid Dreams Forever

Posted on Tuesday, November 15th, 2016

The last time Valborg graced Roadburn with their bleakly elegant presence was already almost seven years ago – at Roadburn 2010, as a part of Tom G. Warrior‘s unforgettable Only Death Is Real curatorship. To be honest, we couldn’t think of a better pairing – this German ensemble of dread […]

Esben And The Witch Will Creep Up On Roadburn 2017 And Will Fill It With Terror

Posted on Tuesday, November 15th, 2016

They do creep up on us, don’t they? Esben And The Witch, we mean. Ever since their inception in Brighton a few years ago, they seem to have been the sort of band that will draw in unknowing listeners out of curiosity for their name, their sombre, nondescript sort of […]
