There are three official fully equipped festival camping sites (A, B & C), with sufficient capacity for all weekend-ticket visitors.

You can stay at the Pinkpop camping sites (or visit them) if you have a weekend ticket and wristband. Check arrival, departure and wristbands. With a one-day ticket you can’t stay at the festival camping sites (also applicable if you have 2 or 3 one-day tickets).

The Pinkpop camping sites will open on Friday June 7th at 6:00 PM and will close on Tuesday June 11th at noon. There will be campingtainment on Camping site B on Friday evening in the Desperados ‘We Are The Party Area’!

Arrival, departure and wristbands

Arrival

Before you arrive at Pinkpop, check the maps and directions to the various camping sites on this website. This way you will know what will be the best travel route for the camping of your choice, depending on if you come by car, train, bus or on foot! Coming by car? The Pinkpop parking areas will open at 3PM on Friday June 7th.

Upon showing your three-day ticket and following a strict baggage check, festivalgoers can enter the camping site. The organization can allocate a site for your tent.
The rule for each camping site is: full = full. So, it’s a matter of first come, first serve and some re-shuffling to make room for all. The camping sites have sufficient capacity for all weekend-ticket visitors, but the later you arrive, the more limited is your choice of a site.

Wristbands

Will you be staying at the camping site?
Upon arrival at one of the Pinkpop camping sites you will receive a wristband when showing your valid weekend ticket.

Weekend ticket but don’t want to stay at the camping site?
You will also have to collect a wristband! On Friday evening, this will be possible at the camping site entrances from 6:00 PM onwards. On Saturday and Sunday, you can collect your wristbands from 10:00 AM onwards inside the tent at the Hofstraat (near the main entrance of the festival site). On Monday, wristband collection will be held at the information stand at the Pinkpop Plein. With your wristband (+ ticket), you can visit the Pinkpop camping sites but, as mentioned above, it is not necessary to arrive at one of the camping sites to collect a wristband there.

Departure

All camping sites close at the same time, on Tuesday June 11th at 12:00 noon.

Starting Tuesday morning 7:00 AM. The crew will start to wake up all campers. At noon, the camping sites will be handed over to the council of Landgraaf. This means there will be no more security or surveillance and we have learned from experience that after that time unwanted ‘guests’ can start prowling the camping sites, looking for valuables and other items. So, don’t leave your tent unattended. Be forewarned and make sure you have left the camping sites before 12:00 noon, together with all your belongings.
Tip: until the camping sites will close, you can store your belongings temporarily at the Bagagedepot at Camping site B or at the festival site!

When leaving, don’t leave your waste at the camping sites. We prefer you to put your waste in the free garbage bags (available at the camping reception/info stand). If you return a full waste bag there, you will receive a nice souvenir. If you want to get rid of things that can be re-used, place them in the appropriate bins at camping sites A, B and C. These will be delivered to local food banks or recycle shops.

Frequently asked questions

Children/minimum age?

The minimum age to visit Pinkpop without supervision is 12 years.

Bringing children to Pinkpop is possible but under supervision. They must also be in possession of a valid entrance ticket. As a deliberate measure to discourage parents from taking their (small) children, there is no reduced rate for children.

The organization therefore advises against taking small children to an event that is visited so massively.

 

Visitors with special needs?

In collaboration with INTER, leader in accessible events, we try to make the festival as accessible as possible for people with special needs. Do you want to make use of the special needs facilities at the festival site or Camping site A? Please fill in the online request form after purchasing a regular Pinkpop ticket.

There are no special Pinkpop tickets for people with special needs. There are also no discounts for people with special needs or their companion. Everyone pays the same price.

What is the maximum size for a tent?

The size of the tent should correspond with the actual number of people sleeping in it. This means: don’t bring a large military tent for just two people, but a smaller igloo tent, for example.

Can I make a reservation for a camping site?

We don’t accept reservations in advance; it’s first come, first serve. The organization can appoint specific locations for your tent. All camping sites together have sufficient capacity for all weekend-ticket visitors. This means there’s always a spot for you, but the later you come, the more limited is your choice of site. People with one or multiple day tickets are unfortunately not allowed to stay at the camping sites. For all campings, first come first serve applies as well as full = full.

Can I join my friends who have arrived earlier, at a camping site that is already full?

If your friends have found a spot at a camping site, you can always join them in their tent (if they have enough room), when you arrive later. But once the sign “full” goes up, no extra tent can be pitched. Visitors with a Pinkpop wristband and weekend-ticket can always visit each other’s tents or spend the night there. Check ‘ARRIVAL AND DEPARTURE’ for information on where to get your wristband.

Car camper van or caravan?

Pinkpop is a true tent festival. The organization does not allow campers, caravans, collapsibles etcetera, to the festival camping sites. Alternatively, campers with caravans and campers could stay at the regular camping site: ‘De Watertoren’.

Day ticket access to Pinkpop Camping sites?

A day ticket does not give access to the Pinkpop Camping sites and the campingtainment (rule also applies if one has two or three day tickets).

No acess means that it is not possible to spend the night at one of the Pinkpop Camping sites. For other possibilities regarding spending the night, in the Landgraaf area, click here.

Barbecue at the camping sites?

Yes, this is possible, but only at the so-called BBQ spot that can be easily found at each camping site. Throwaway barbecues, mini barbecues and small camping gas burners (the blue ones: screw-, no puncture bottles) are allowed.

It is not allowed to barbecue in front of your tent, because of fire risks for you and your fellow campers.
