it would appear that u can buy tickets through the above websites. they seem to be tickets which are sent by email and you take along a print off/barcode. has anyone done this before? - it appears to be quite common for european events.

would it be best to wait for an option for british ticket buyers to appear? (there was one on the previous years website)

very grateful for any advice.

really looking forward to this. the site looks amazing.

Hi, am giving this festival some serious consideration! (great bands and VERY cheap beer!)

Few questions though...

Do many brits normally go? would be nice to make some friends!

Me and my gf are both 17, anyone had any trouble with the 18+ restriction?

Will there be more additions to the line-up?

Any help and info would be awesome.

Cheers! B)

For a festival this size it is amazingly internationaly. Quite a few Brits, but also Scandinavians, Dutch and Eastern Europeans. Still, more germans though. Can you only make friends among Brits though? Weird.

I didn't get checked for age last year, am 22 now though. Haven't met anybody who was in trouble, haven't met anyone who looked really young. Depends on how old you look I guess.

The line up is not complete as of now as far as I know, even though most major bands should be known by now.

Anyone heading there this year?

I have my ticket and almost everything sorted!

Going solo as of now.

Great lineup, but shame the first day is really heavy with most of the good acts with lots of clashing going on, while the 2nd day is a bit lacking.

I think I will be going, need to sort some things out first though. The crowd is cool though, international for a German festival, easy to make friends with.

Hello all

I'm thinking of going to melt this year with my boyfriend. We were really impressed with the lineup last year and if it's going to be as good this year we'll definitely be making the trip over. Just a few questions though:

- is it advisable to book the train from Berlin to the fest in advance? I guess it would be busy? Is there a better way of travelling down? I see cool tours run a bus from Berlin's airports straight to the festival - is this any good?

- what are food and drink prices like inside the festival? obviously coming from the UK we don't want to carry much. I'm also assuming that like normal festivals you can consume your drinks inside the campsites but not the arena? I'm confised by what it says in the FAQ on the site (Any kind of glass, cans, jerry cans, plastic bottles and food are prohibited on the festival site. You are allowed to bring one (1) non-alcoholic Tetrapak of 1.5 liters. Moreover, the tab water in the non-Dixi toilets qualifies as drinking water. Be free to bring your own food and drinks onto the camping site.) <<<< ?

Any help would be appreciated!
