Transport

Read more about ways to get to Pinkpop here.

By train

Pinkpop is easily accessible by train; every year there are (extra) trains to and from Landgraaf.

Avoid long queues at check-in and check-out!

We advise you to buy an e-ticket in advance. This way you don’t have to check in and check out at Heerlen station with NS and Arriva. The trains can go through faster and you will be faster at Pinkpop! You will need to enter Landgraaf Station as your final destination for this. You cán travel with your OV chip card, but make sure that you do check in and check out at Heerlen Station with NS and Arriva.

Group return
The NS is also offering very nice group discounts during off-peak hours this year! You can buy group tickets here.

Plan your trip in advance
From 10 days before departure, check the NS travel planners at www.ns.nl and Arriva in the glimble app or www.9292.nl for up-to-date travel advice and to purchase an e-ticket.

Don’t gamble on the very last train, it can be very crowded.
