One of the world’s oldest music events, Pinkpop is the cornerstone that kicks off the Netherlands’ summer festival circuit with the biggest names from rock, pop and dance dropping in for three days each May.

The likes of Basement Jaxx, Bruce Springsteen, Happy Mondays and Ian Dury and the Blockheads have entertained the 60,000 festival-goers the event attracts annually, so expect more of the same this time around.

The site at Megaland, Landgraaf has four campsites to choose from along with a host of food stalls and, most importantly, a good number of bars as well.

Big Green Coach have announced that they are working directly with this year’s festival, providing ticket and travel packages for fans.

The environmentally responsible travel company has a number of weekend camping passes for both sites with coaches running from a number of major cities.
