Re: Metallica, Motorhead, Slayer coming to Yverdon les Bains

Tickets are 120/170 CHF on the web page, I really, really want to go...

I will try to get more tickets tomorrow morning, if I manage at all...

I think I will be going alone, maybe we should do organize an event going there?

from the sonisphere website:

Quote:
Public transport
CFF will provide extra trains to and from Yverdon before and after the Festival. Details will be available in April.
otherwise there are a few camping sites available nearby.

http://sz.sonisphere.eu/

does anyone know how many tickets are being sold for this concert? i'm kinda playing it by ear waiting to see if some more interesting bands fill in the lineup. i'm not much of a metallica fan actually.

Re: Metallica, Motorhead, Slayer coming to Yverdon les Bains

I'm not sure how many tickets there are. But its only a small place. I've been to Hyde Park, 80,000 and Milton Keynes Superbowl, 60,000. This is tiny in comparison. The local kids here already have their tickets. Buying mine at the station very soon

Re: Metallica, Motorhead, Slayer coming to Yverdon les Bains

I managed to get one ticket on the pre-sale. Probably will go by car from Lausanne if anyone wants to join, we could arrange.

I bought my ticket already as well.

I'm interested in arranging to join you for the car ride.

Hi, tomorrow is the concert, anybody else want to join? The concert starts at 3.00pm not 3.45pm as it is written on the ticket...

Anybody knows if cameras are allowed inside? How about parking arrangment or it's better to take the train? If we go by car I will have 2 free places if VINNI still wants to join, otherwise 3.

Hey, I'm still going. Didn't realize that you are in Lausanne though. I'm in Basel, so that's not going to work out! That means that you have 3 places

from the website-
small cameras are allowed.
Professional cameras, film cameras and recording equipment are NOT allowed within the festival area without a permit given by the festival organization.
(SLR cameras with removable lenses[?] are not allowed)

also, you are allowed to carry booze inside, but only a quantity that can be consumed by yourself. I think i read 1 beer and 1 hard liquor.
no glass items allowed.

Cheers!!!

I loved the way the sun disappeared from sight just as soon as Slayer started playing. The Dark vibe was at it's fullest... what an awesome show that was!

They rocked, They rocked HARD.
Great evening.
Pyros where the bomb

Sorry that didn't meet up, my phone decided that it didn't want to communicate, just listen to the excellent tunes. Can't blame it really.

The phone networks were completely saturated, I'm surprised they didn't add a gsm tower or two. Mobile networking was paltry at best... doesn't matter!
