Lowlands Festival Set to Become Wetlands Festival

Lowlands is this weekend and has an outstanding line up – Parcels, Jungle, Loyle Carner, Tame Impala and ASAP Rocky (conviction pending) just to name a few. But fortunately or unfortunately (depending on how you look at it) ticket prices have crashed due do the bad weather forecast. Hundreds of previously eager festival frothers are now flogging their tickets for under half the original value. 

The festival begins this Thursday in Biddinghuizen, a village in the municipality of Dronten. The 60,000 tickets for the festival sold out in March of this year for 210 euros. Now there are over 600 tickets being flogged for as little as 118 euros on re-sale sites such as TicketSwap.

One festival goer, 27-year-old Maud bought two tickets for 275 euros each a few weeks ago. “It was really worth it to me. My joy was enormous when I managed to get tickets after two weeks of searching” she tells RTL.  She is hugely disappointed that the prices for the tickets have now crashed. Well, at least it’s not Fyre Festival, Maud!

Other festivals are on this weekend, such as Decibel Outdoor, NOS reports. However with 55,000 admission tickets only 320 are on re-sale for that festival.  Does that speak volumes about the crowd being ‘tougher’ than lowland-goers?

If you are headed to Lowlands festival, I suggest you get on with it and adopt these practical measures:

Are you going to Lowlands this year? Have you been before? Would the rain put you off?

Freya was born in Edinburgh but raised in New Zealand (cue every person she meets saying “oh I have always wanted to go there but it’s so far away!”). A restless and curious nature has led her to move countries 5 times in the last 3 years in attempt to find a place she can call home. She contacted DutchReview on a whim and arrived in the Netherlands in summer 2019 to start her internship.
