Best Kept Secret Festival 2018

Recommended Posts

Last year it was five gigs a day, I think all of the bands were already on the lineup, bottom half of the poster (Slutface, Sundara Karma, Amber Arcades, Amazons, Cigarettes after sex, Andy Schauff, Stuff.,  Canshaker Pi, etc.).

Its located near the entrance of stage 2. As the above says, it's mainly new smaller bands who are already on the bill doing intimate/accoustic sets and interviews

I saw someone mention in the primavera thread there is secret or unannounced sets at bks. Does anyone who has been know how this works? What size of band? Is it on main stages etc? 

Cheers

Last year there was an unexpected dj set by Soulwax on stage 4 at 15 or 16 pm, then they played with live band on stage 2 in the evening.

Bks communicated it an hour before by a whatsapp newsletter (I don't remember they used the traditional social media but I'm not sure).

Mogwai and Slowdive announced with some others. Nice.

Assume that’s probably the line up done now other than stage 4 stuff?

Isaac Gracie is a mesmerizing artist as well... Eddie Vedder x Kurt Cobain x the British indie folk touch

Lovely announcement, might have convinced me to sell my friday ticket and buy a weekend ticket. Slowdive and Mogwai returning after their great shows at BKS '14, the best Dutch indie act and tons of great, smaller names with Jay Som, Nilufer Yanya and Vagabon.

Hadn't heard of them before but liking the sound of Jay Som and Vagabon, will be checking them out if clashes allow (which isn't likely considering how strong the lineup is!)

Yeah I've gone from having enough to justify the flight to a full schedule to oh shit I'm worried about this clash finder now!

Like Marlo Stanfield said, sounds like one of them good problems.

Does anyone know how much a train ticket from Amsterdam to Tilburg is and if it can be booked at the train station on the day?
We're making the trek from Cape town, South AFrica

€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

Why not enter a facebook group and buy a group ticket with random people? I used that in NL every time and it's way cheaper. 20€ for like 70 minutes train ride is too much

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).
