Accommodation at Roadburn 2019

October 3, 2018

As well as tickets going on sale for Roadburn 2019, you will also be able to book various accommodation options from today too! Here’s all the information you’ll need regarding accommodation at Roadburn 2019.

Urban Campsite

The Roadburn Urban Campsite will return for 2019. It will be at the same location as last year (Oisterwijksebaan, 5018 TG Tilburg, The Netherlands) and will provide a comfortable and affordable option for Roadburners – all within walking distance to the festival.  There is hot showers, clean toilets, phone charging facilities, cold drinking water and parking on site! There is a bar on site, plus breakfast is available to purchase! Prices start at less than €80 to camp for the whole of the festival, and go up to €659.40 for a four person ‘Flexotel’ for four nights or €309,00 for a two person Festipi.  It is also possible to bring a camper van for a small fee.

Eindhoven

Eindhoven is just a short train ride away from Tilburg, and has a huge array of hotels of all different kinds – from luxury to budget. A large number of these hotels are located very close to the train station, so if you time it right, you could go from bed to watching a band at the Koepelhal in a little over half an hour!

Trains run approximately every 15 minutes throughout the day and take 22 minutes to get to Tilburg. Of course there’s a plenty to do, eat and drink in Eindhoven itself, and there’s the added benefit of the close proximity to Eindhoven airport for those traveling in from around Europe.

We already have quite some Roadburners who make the trip to Tilburg every day during Roadburn but this time we’re making it even easier. As the train doesn’t run all night, when there is no train available we will provide a late night shuttle bus running between the two cities once an hour until 4am (3am on the Sunday night/Monday morning) to ensure you get back to your hotel without missing out on any of the fun of the festival.

The Valk Hotel

The Valk hotel will offer hotel accommodation in Tilburg – rooms are on sale from tomorrow. Bookings can be made by emailing: sales (at) tilburg (dot) valk (dot) nl and you must include the reference GF759 in your email subject. Read more about the hotel HERE.

Pricing

3 night Comfort Room including breakfast  (based on 2 persons) € 575,00 per room

4 night Comfort Room including breakfast  (based on 2 persons) € 749,00 per room

3 night Comfort Room including breakfast  (based on 1 person) € 529,00 per room

4 night Comfort Room including breakfast  (based on 1 person) € 687,00 per room

Beekse Bergen

The Beekse Bergen Safari Park – which is located just outside Tilburg – will have a number of new, luxurious cabins available to rent during Roadburn as well as the more familiar Jungalows! There will be a private shuttle bus running between the Beekse Bergen and the festival site for a small fee – payable on board the bus. For more information on the Beekse Bergen and to book, click HERE.

We know it can be overwhelming to figure out which option will suit you best – so hopefully the above information gives you enough choices to feel comfortable during your time at Roadburn! With the improved links to Eindhoven, plus the urban campsite we know that there will be plenty of room for everybody!

Roadburn Essential Sounds 15.6.18 (by Tomas Lindberg)

June 15, 2018

When we realised that we needed someone to take charge of our weekly playlist due to coinciding vacations, we knew there were several people we could turn to for help. One that stand out for his insatiable appetite for new music would be perfect, someone who can present a little slice of their current audio passions with the same love and attention to detail that we put into the playlists. So, we asked Tomas Lindberg to step in this week.

He’s known to most as the frontman for At The Gates and Disfear, but also known to some as the enthusiastic Swedish man who is down the front, banging his head and raising his fists at many a Roadburn performance.

So, without further ado, here is a list of Tompa’s current top tunes.

Uran – Emp (Höga Nord Rekords)

Henrik Palm – Missoula (Fetish Records)

Craft – Darkness Falls (Season Of Mist)

Black Salvation – In a Casket’s Ride (Relapse Records)

The Skull Defekts – A Brief History Of Rhythm, Dub, Life And Death (Thrill Jockey)

Robocobra Quartet – Short Stretch Of Day (Abbreviated Records)

Revevorum Ib Malacht – Where Escapism Ends (AnnapurnA)

Dungen & Woods – Loop (Kemado Records)

Agrimonia – A World Unseen (Southern Lord)

The Excorsist – Pusher (Höga Nord Rekords)

Experiencing Roadburn Festival 2018 with Converge's Jacob Bannon

A huge thanks to Frank and Hollie at Metal Injection who came to Roadburn this year – and created this video documenting their experience with us.

They take a look at what makes Roadburn such a unique experience: the hardships, the changes, the curation process, and more. Including interviews with 2018 curator Jacob Bannon of Converge, festival organizer / creator, Walter Hoeijmakers, and many more!


A Heartfelt Thank You!

April 25, 2018

With another edition of Roadburn done and dusted, we wanted to take a moment to reflect on the past four days. Every year our expectations are surpassed, and this year was no different.

The geographical footprint of the festival may have changed a bit, with the introduction of new venues – the Koepelhal and Hall of Fame — but the heart of Roadburn has stayed the same. We are driven by passion, creativity and diversity – only this year we had a little bit more room to let those things breathe. This still felt like a party for 4,000+ of our nearest and dearest friends and collaborators.

We are truly honoured to have played host to two groundbreaking comissioned collaborations in the form of The Waste of Space Orchestra and Sól án varma -we are grateful that you all came along for the ride and put your faith in both us and the musicians.

To have 26 West Coast musicans invade the festival en masse – bringing not only the San Diego weather but their Oceanside vibe added a whole new dimension to the festival – especially when uniting with their Japanese counterparts.

That our audience is openminded and openhearted to welcome acts as diverse as Zola Jesus, Ex Eye, Mizmor, Converge, Igorrr, Sangre de Muerdago, Earthless, Damo Suzuki, Cult of Luna & Julie Christmas, Bell Witch, Godspeed You! Black Emperor… it spurs us on and reminds us why we do this. The special, once in a lifetime sets are overwhelming – even for us.

It will take quite some time to digest everything we have witnessed, but we want to thank each and everyone of you for the part you play in making Roadburn what it was this weekend: a truly phenomenal experience. We all play equal parts in making Roadburn a success.

Walter, Becky & everyone at Roadburn.

P.s. Mark your calendars for 11-14 April 2019, because we’ll be doing it all again then.
