Q: Why buy presale tickets?
A: Tickets bought before the festival on our website or in our ticketing networks are cheaper than tickets sold at the cash desks on site. They also allow you in earlier, from 9.00 am.
If you buy tickets on site, please note that the cash desks open at 10.00 am and that you won’t get the discount.
Q: Until when are presale tickets available?

Q: I didn’t receive my ticket by e-mail. What can I do?

Q: I bought my ticket but I will be unable to come to the festival. Can I give it to someone else?
A: 1-day tickets and 4-day passes have no name; thus, you can give your ticket to another person.
Yet, if there were to occur any problem, we will only be able to solve it if the person who has bought it is with you. Otherwise, the ticket-holder will not be allowed in.
Zen Tickets are name specific: you cannot give them to someone else. Only the person whose name is on the Zen Ticket is allowed to use it.
Q: I made a mistake on my birthdate when buying my ticket on your website. How can I change it?
A: The birthdate when buying a 1-day ticket or 4-day pass is not compulsory. Therefore, there is no need to change it.

Q: How to pay for my tickets on your website?
A: The only means of payment is the credit card (CB, VISA, MASTERCARD).
