  • You will receive an e-mail with the personalized tickets.

NB: lost confirmation email or the email with your tickets? Request this again via this Paylogic site!

Can I still sell or change my personalized ticket?

Have you bought a ticket from someone who was already personalized? Or would you like to take someone else to Freshtival? No problem, there are two different options for solving this.

1. Sell your tickets via Ticketswap. Freshtival has a collaboration with this platform! SecureSwap means that the tickets sold are exchanged for a new ticket that is directly in the name of the new owner. The old ticket, which is still in the seller’s possession, is therefore automatically invalid. This makes it 100% safe to sell and buy your tickets through this platform. Click here to swap!
2. You can change your ticket details quickly and easily via the special Name Change Module from Paylogic. Keep in mind that € 3 per ticket will be charged for the change.

My ticket has been stolen. What should I do?

This page explains exactly what steps you should take if your ticket is stolen.

Do you still sell tickets at the door?

If Freshtival is not sold out, tickets will still be available at the door. Keep an eye on our Facebook page for the latest updates!

Do I have to print the ticket (s) in A4 format and in color?

If you print your ticket(s), do this in A4 format, otherwise the barcode is too small to scan. However, it is not necessary to print the tickets in color (unless specifically stated on the ticket). The barcode is the most important, so make sure it is clearly visible!

It is also possible to have your ticket scanned from your mobile phone. Keep in mind that the internet connection is not always stable. We therefore advise you to download your ticket on your phone and make a screenshot before you go to Freshtival, so that you always have your digital ticket quickly at hand.

Also make sure that the brightness of your screen is at maximum.

Can tickets also be scanned from a mobile phone?

Yes, it is possible to scan tickets from a mobile phone. Keep in mind that the internet connection is not always stable. We therefore advise you to download your ticket in advance on your phone and to make a screenshot so that you always have your digital ticket quickly at hand.

Also make sure that the brightness of your screen is at maximum.

How do I collect my pre-sale tokens?

After arrival you can collect your tokens at the pre-sale cash registers via your printed ticket or via the ticket on your mobile. The pre-sale cash registers are indicated on the floor plan.

Where can I buy a shuttle bus ticket?

You can order shuttle bus tickets (return) online here for € 10.75 each (incl. Service costs), but these are also available locally (at Enschede Central). For more information about the shuttle bus tickets, check our transport page.

Please note: there are no one-way tickets. When boarding after Freshtival, it is therefore not possible to purchase a shuttle bus ticket; you must already have the ticket.

In principle it cannot be crazy enough for us, the only thing we do not want is offensive, racist, condemning clothing / statements. It is also not allowed to come in clothing that makes you recognizable as a group. Freshtival is a low-threshold event where everyone must be able to feel at ease!

I recently gave birth and am looking for some privacy during Freshtival!

Every year we look forward to the arrival of the young mothers who don’t want to miss Freshtival! Of course we have thought of these young mothers, because they sometimes need a moment to arrange some (important) things. This is of course possible with us in the first aid. You can just walk in here and you don’t have to report this in advance 🙂

Can I hang up banners, flyers or banners on Freshtival?

Are you prepared for bad weather?

Freshtival has many tents, these offer you a dry place to stay at all times and here you have all the options to keep going! In addition, we have wooden floors at all areas so that you don’t have to walk in the mud. Of course we also have ponchos. So even in case of bad weather; it’s always Freshtival again!

What if I use medication and / or have an allergy?
