No fewer than 100,000 people have queued up in the digital queue today for a ticket to one of the concerts and trial festivals of ID&T and MOJO. A number of the tickets obtained have been offered directly on the black market. Buying such a ticket makes zero point zero sense.
The four trial festivals to investigate what is possible in the event industry again sold out in 20 minutes this afternoon.
Great need for trial festivals
“By comparison, Mysteryland had 130,000 visitors in three days at the last edition in 2019,” said a spokesperson for the organization about the enthusiasm. But a total of only 5,600 tickets were available for the four trial events. So they were in no time away. “This also testifies to the great need that there is,” said the spokesman.
The small-scale events take place in March as part of the Fieldlab Events research. Festival fans and concertgoers could buy tickets for two events in the Ziggo Dome and two trial festivals on the event grounds of Walibi Holland in Biddinghuizen on Thursday from 12:00 noon. Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano, André Hazes and Maan, among others, are headliners at the events. Subway visited one of the other test events on Saturday, a performance by Guido Weijers. Everyone will be corona tested twice during future trial events. However, that did not stop people from trying to buy a ticket.
In the Ziggo Dome people reacted very enthusiastically.
Also abuse of tickets
Fieldlab Events warns against the resale of tickets for the Back to Live trial festivals. That let the organization know. The first pop festival tickets already appeared on Marktplaats this afternoon, starting at around 300 euros each. “It would be a shame if you buy it, because it is of no use. All cards are by name. ” At the festival, visitors must submit a negative corona test, which is linked to their BSN number and name. “And we will check that.”
The trial festivals in a row:
• 6 March Ziggo Dome, dance party with, among others, Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano, Sam Feld, Lucas & Steve and Lady Bee.
• March 7th Ziggo Dome, concert André Hazes together with a support act and special guest.
• 13 March Lowlandsterrein Biddinghuizen, Back To Live dance festival with Joris Voorn, Reinier Zonneveld, Colin Benders, Nicky Elisabeth and Philou Louzolo.
• March 14 Lowloandsterrein Biddinghuizen, pop festival with Chef’Special, Maan and Bilal Wahib, among others.
