    Shuttle bus isn't free though. €5 per return trip. (Not applicable only if you bought the combi train + shuttle bus ticket for €24)

    We might be lucky. Current forecast has possible thunderstorms tonight and Monday, but we might get away with just a shower or two over the weekend, if that. All pot luck really. It is going to be warm though. https://www.weeronline.nl/Europa/Nederland/Hilvarenbeek/4058622 Just got a bit more work to finish off here, then heading to Tilburg this afternoon to visit a few of my favourite beer bars. Have fun everyone.

    Until recently it used to be the case on the NS (Dutch railways) website that you could only pay for online tickets using a Dutch bank account, but they appear to have finally added an option to pay with credit cards. I haven't tried it, but it should work from anywhere.

    Shuttle buses leave about every 10-15 minutes from outside Tilburg station throughout the weekend, and also on Monday morning. Start and finish times each day are here: https://www.bestkeptsecret.nl/en/#/en/faq/coming-by-train/ We always stay in Tilburg as well and it's never been a problem getting there and back. You do have to buy a new shuttle bus ticket each day (was always €5pp return in previous years) as one ticket is one return journey, not a weekend pass.

    "Decent value" depends on where you're starting from. Not worth it if coming from somewhere fairly close like Eindhoven, Den Bosch or Breda as the total cost of train tickets plus shuttle bus bought separately comes to way less than €24...

    You need to get into Amenra. They were excellent last time out... Although I do accept their sound isn't for everyone. Beyond that, however, I'm largely in agreement about Friday. So far it's shaping up to be the worst day of my Pukkelpop career.

    Very happy with The Joy Formidable. Sleaford Mods will be good, but I'm not so sure I need to see them again quite so soon after last time. The rest? Not so much... Although to be fair, I've never heard of half of them, so there may be a few discoveries in there...

    Not sure where they'd put it though. Not a lot of spare space at the site.

    Going to be a busy schedule and a lot of clashes for me this year. That's 5 more added to my wishlist...

    I'd say the logistical nightmare that would entail (shifting the Main Stage around for one act) renders that idea nigh on impossible...

    AF and NERD confirmed.

    If you're right, then I'm out of here until Thursday...

    One thing to watch out for with the group tickets is that on Mondays to Fridays you can't travel during peak hours (i.e. 06.30-09.00 or, perhaps more relevantly, 16.00-18.30).

    €18.30 from Amsterdam Centraal, €19.20 from Schiphol Airport. There are no seat reservations possible on Dutch domestic trains, so not much point in buying in advance. Better to buy from a ticket machine at the station, as you pay a slight premium for talking to a real person. You should be able to find out most of what you need to know here: https://www.ns.nl/en
