Buying tickets online

At this website you can buy tickets 24 hours a day. All available tickets are sold online, from the moment the event is booked definitively up to the start of the show. There may be affiliate websites that have integrated our online shop to sell tickets for events in which they are involved. These may only sell tickets for those shows we collaborate on.

Our online ticket sales system is called ActiveTickets. We were its launching customer years ago, but it is a generic private service that is in use by many venues, thaters and festivals. To buy tickets online, you have to create an account. This only serves for purchases and newsletters from our website. There are no costs attached. There is a small handling fee for each online purchase, however.

On the 'Home' and 'Agenda' pages you can look for a concert or party. If you have trouble finding a specific show, you can narrow down the listing by specifying a location, genre and/or month. You can also enter a search term.
Bring the cursor to an event of your choice. Click it to open a page with all the event details, or click on 'Tickets' directly. When you have opened the details page, you can click on 'Buy tickets' there.
The ActiveTickets shopping cart will come up. Click on 'Order' if you see the right show presented there. In the next screen you select the kind (when more than one is available) and number of tickets. Click on 'Order' again once you have made your choice. You can now check out.
Choose between iDEAL (if you have a Dutch bank account), creditcard or PayPal, and follow the screens for the chosen payment type. This part of the procedure is screened from us too, but once the payment has completed, this is reported back to our website.
An e-mail will be sent automatically to the address in your account. Attached will be the e-tickets. These are pdf files to print and bring with you to the show. They contain the barcode that will be scanned on entrance and the transaction number that we can use to retrieve the tickets in the system when needed.

There are two payment platforms:

  • iDEAL. This is payment by online banking with a Dutch bank account. For more information and a list of currently joined banks, see the iDEAL website.
  • Paypal. For this you need to start a free account with Paypal. You can put money in this account as a debit or pay by bank or credit card. See the Paypal website for more information.
