PINKPOP, the Netherlands’ oldest and most famous pop festival will have its 51st edition in 2021, a unique record!

Since 1990 Pinkpop has even made the Great Guinness Book Of Records. Here you can find more interesting facts about Pinkpop, the festival’s history, the acts and the posters.


In 2021 Pinkpop will take place on Megaland in Landgraaf for the 33nd time.
The first edition of the festival was held on May 18th 1970 in Geleen (where Pinkpop was held 17 times). In 1987, the festival was once held in Baarlo. More information regarding the history of Pinkpop can be found here.

Pinkpop is organized with the kind cooperation of the Limburg town of Landgraaf and its inhabitants.

What is Pinkpop?

At the festivalsite of Pinkpop, you will enjoy over 50 top acts on 5 stages (open air and indoors) in three days. Next tot the main site, you will find smaller areas such as the Kalm Aan Laan (Take It Easy Lane) or Garden of Love with more diversity in food and drinks and a place to relax. At the festival market, you will find a unique offer of bohemian, vintage, boots, bags, shirts (kids as well), sunglasses, hats, jewelry and even more! It’s mostly a place of designs by creative exhibitors.

Do you want to keep partying throughout the night? There’s a night program at Camping B (only for visitors with a weekend ticket!).

Frequently asked question

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, Camping site A or the MIVA parking? Please send an email to to request 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.

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.
