Already announced: The Strokes, The National, Pottery, Yin Yin. 
 

I’m curious what else we can expect. Especially if there are any 2020 names not returning or if there are new names on the bill compared to 2020...

Wonder where Jamie XX will play.

I didn’t have a ticket for this year but was tempted before all Covid hit.

Very good lineup nonetheless.

Great to see so many 2020 acts being transferred to 2021. That's the way you do it.

I reckon Jamie XX will play TWO after The National closes the ONE?

Re, Jamie XX. Yeah I would have thought so too. That will be busy. 
Otherwise it would be before National but that just doesn’t seem right 😕

Just a note if anyone already requested a refund but now wants to keep the ticket you can cancel the refund request via the link on the Eventim email....but need to do so before Monday.....

When do single day tickets usually sell out? (e.e. Arctic Monkeys day in 2018?)

Is it possible to buy tickets via ticketswap on secondary market?

There are already tickets on ticketswap, so they do sell them. Bit daft trying to sell them 20 euro above the price when it's not sold out...

Normally tickets don't sell out that quickly, except when there's a huge headliner (AM sold out their day in a month, Arcade Fire in a big week, Radiohead in ten minutes (!)). But of course, this year could be a bit different given the situation of ticketholders transferring their 2020 ticket to 2021 (90% did so apparently). 

But if I have to guess, you still have time enough to decide. And if a day is close to selling out, the festival will normally warn us.

Tank you guys :)

Of course asking for the Strokes day cause they don't have a show in Germany but it's hard to convince your friends when everybody you know prefers the Rock am Ring line up....

I am going to do the combi of friday and Saturday. And hoping there will be no day event in Werchter that weekend.

That Friday is just amazing for me! The National - Jamie XX is one of the best combinations possible. Also love Tropical Fuck Storm, JFDR, Ela Minus, Octavian, Tinariwen and Soccer Mommy. I will certainly buy a Friday ticket, maybe going combi if Werchter disappoints.

No, Piknik I Parken takes place from June 17-19 and Bonnaroo from June 17-20. 

So they'll probably perform on different days, like Oslo on the 17th and Manchester, US on the 20th.

Looking at coming to Best Kept Secret for the first time in 2021.  Can anyone give advice on how quickly tickets typically sell out?  Obviously hard to know given 2020 was cancelled, but we have a few in our group who aren't able to commit to coming until the new year, and they are worried that they might miss out on tickets.

Normally you would be fine, but with the Covid situation it is just hard to tell. But even if it does sell out, there are usually tickets for sale on ticketswap in the weeks before the festival.
