We’re very aware that people are awaiting an announcement from us regarding the line up for Roadburn 2017. We’re working on that right now and will have some news for you within the next couple of weeks – we’re putting the finishing touches to the first batch of announcements, with more to follow. We hope you’ll agree that they’re worth the wait!
In the mean time, we want to give you advance warning that tickets for Roadburn 2017 will go on sale on October 20! Mark your calendars now, and save your pennies! We’ll have more details available before they go onsale regarding pricing and links etc. But we can tell you now that they will be sold via TICKETMASTER once again, and also will be available to purchase in person from the 013 venue in Tilburg (NL) at our annual onsale party!
In case you missed the news this summer… we have some good news for visitors to Roadburn from outside of Tilburg! After some careful negotiating with local authorities, we can confirm that non-Dutch residents will be able to gain access to Tilburg’s coffee shops and can legally purchase marijuana products – as long as they are wearing a Roadburn wristband!
We’re well aware that this part of our culture is appealing to visitors and we’re very happy to be able to include you during Roadburn 2017. The city of Tilburg has always been very welcoming to Roadburners, and this is yet another extension of that welcome. Tilburg has several recommended coffee shops and we’re sure locals will happily point you in the right direction. So, if you like, you can now go forth, smoke and have a good time!
In the mean time, as with previous years, Marcel Van De Vondervoort (Torture Garden Studio) and his amazing team have captured the essence of Roadburn 2016 in these incredible audio recordings, hosted by VPRO 3voor12, Holland‘s major cultural network.
Stay tuned for more announcements in the first week of October – and, as ever, thank you for your continued support of Roadburn Festival!
– Walter, Becky, and all at the 013 venue.
