As you may noticed, we also announced an OUTDOOR edition of The Sound Of Revolution and we hope that are just as siked about this as we are! The 1st outdoor edition of The Sound Of Revolution will take place on June 8th, just outside the Klokgebouw building in Eindhoven, and we will soon drop the first names and start ticket sales. 

The Sound Of Revolution was created in 2016 when agent Martijn van den Heuvel joined the Loud Noise team. Martijn is the frontman for Dutch hardcore band No Turning Back for 20 years now and always had a profound connection to the hardcore scene. “Touring the world for 20 years has connected me thoroughly with a lot of hardcore bands and band members, who I am proud to call friends now”, says Van Den Heuvel. “For years it was my dream to promote a hardcore festival, having bands and idols from my youth to come and play. With The Sound Of Revolution, this became a reality.”

On Friday November 2nd, the doors will open at 6.00 pm and the first band starts at 7.30pm. On Saturday November 3rd, the doors will open at 12:00 pm and the first band starts at 1:30 pm.

At the festival site, you will also get a wrist band with which you can re-enter all day and evening.

You can reach Klokgebouw Eindhoven easily by public transport. More info about this in one of the following text blocks.

Public transportation

The venue is easily accessible with public transportation, next to the train station Eindhoven Strijp-S. You can either arrive here directly by train, or take a bus from the central station in Eindhoven. For train times, please check the website of the Dutch train service (NS): NS.nl (also available in English). For busses and door-to-door info, check the website 9292.nl (also available in English).

Parking

There are several parking facilities near Strijp-S. You can find a PDF with all parking spots on the website of Klokgebouw.

You can buy your parking ticket (€ 7) at the Info Desk of the festival if you want!

Tokens, cash and catering

You can pay for food and drinks with tokens. The tokens cost € 3 each and can be paid for by debit, credit or with cash. Please note that some registers are ‘Cash Only’ so you can’t pay by debit card at these registers. Also, this year it’s possible to withdraw up to an amount of € 100 cash at the token desks.

Tokens Presale
To avoid lines at the festival, we recommend to buy your tokens before the festival! After your payment you will get a receipt with which you can get your tokens at the venue. Buy your drink and food tokens for The Sound Of Revolution 2018 here: https://tibbaa.com/order/t1qgewvyvw. The presale for tokens will end at October 31st.

Left-over tokens
During The Sound Of Revolution, we are working with a deposit system for our plastic cups. How does it work? The first time you buy a drink, you will have to pay two tokens. One token counts as the deposit for the plastic cup. Whenever you get a new drink, you give the people at the bar a new token and your cup, to get a new drink. To exchange your last cup we offer two options:
1. Donate your cup to the Hardcore Help Foundation. You will find special containers at the HHF-stall at the festival. For every cup we will donate € 3 to the foundation!
2. The other option is to trade in your hard, plastic cup for a soft cup with a new drink at the bar from 11.30pm onwards on Friday and on the second festival day this is possible from 00.15am onwards (as we want to reduce waste as much as possible).

Catering
There is a food court preset with vegan food, vegetarian food and food for carnivores. You can buy food and drinks with festival tokens.

18+ wrist bands

Are you 18, but look younger? Get your special 18+ wristband at the Information desk! If there is any doubt about your age at the bar, all you have to do is show your 18+ wristband to get your beer. But if we doubt your age and you don’t have a wristband, you will not be served any alcohol! So if you or your friends think you have a “baby face”, avoid discussions at the bar and get your 18+ wristband at the Information desk, which you can find at the entrance area of the building.

Disabled

The venue is accessible for people with disabilities. There will be no additional platform for people in weelchairs, but there are toilets with extra space and more. Since there are no lifts, it is not possible for people with disabilities or in weelchairs to access the balcony.

Hotels

There are several hotels near the festival area. The Blue Collar hotel is only a few meters away from the venue, but will likely be fully booked. We recommend you to use Booking.com or Google to find hotels in the vicinity of Klokgebouw (the official address is Klokgebouw 50, 5617 AB Eindhoven).

Info Desk

At the festival you will find an Info Desk. At this point we will have the Lost & Found and 18+ wristbands, but you can also buy ear plugs (€ 0,50) and parking tickets (€ 7) over there. Besides that, the people at the Info Desk are willing to answer every question you have. They also have festival maps and the time schedule for you! Also lockers are available at the Info Desk: € 5 per day or € 7 for a big one. If you want to leave your stuff in the locker for two days, then you’ll have to pay 8 or 10 euro’s.

Festival Rules

Before the party gets started and you’ll enter the venue, we want to make you aware of some practical stuff and specifically our house rules.

The Sound Of Revolution is a festival organized and produced almost entirely by volunteers. So be nice, to us and to each other! Everyone is making an effort to make sure it’s a fun and enjoyable party. Drink plenty of water when it’s hot and don’t forget to eat. Take care of yourself and the people around you, on the festival grounds and in the rest of the city. Think about your ears and wear ear protection. Don’t harass people with other beliefs, just show them music lovers áre open-minded.

The Sound Of Revolution makes an effort to get the best bands to Eindhoven. But unfortunately we cannot avoid accidents or a band has to cancel their whole tour. We can’t do refunds because your favorite band cancelled.

It should all go without saying, but just to make things clear for everyone, here’s a list of things that you are not permitted to bring into the building: Your own food/drinks (unless you have a special diet or medication, and then only after you have permission), glass, surf boards or other attributes to crowd surf with, weapons of any kind or sharp objects, pets and animals, drugs (Klokgebouw has a zero tolerance policy, and we urge you to respect this), flagpoles with flags, umbrellas and canes (with the exception on those medically necessary). Professional photo/film/sound gear is only permitted after strict permission from our organization.

Because we want to keep the festival fun for everyone, provocative clothing will not be allowed. You can (must!) leave it home.

Of course you can bring along: normal (digital) cameras, little spray cans with deodorant and belts. Are you having doubts whether you can take something with you? Ask us!

Children aged 16 and younger are permitted only with guidance and if they have ear protection.

You are not allowed to smoke inside the building, we will be very strict on this!
If you will be caught, there is a zero tolerance policy and unfortunately you’ll have to leave the festival. If the organization will be fined by your actions, it will be recovered from you.

Selling items of any kind without our consent is strictly forbidden. Climbing, fighting and stealing are also forbidden. To make a long story short: don’t be an asshole! If you act inappropriately and don’t listen to any warning, you will be removed from the festival. If your behaviour have caused any damage, you will be charged for the costs.

Tokens, cash and catering
You can pay for food and drinks with tokens. The tokens cost € 3 each and can be paid for by debit, credit or with cash. Please note that some registers are ‘Cash Only’ so you can’t pay by debit or credit card at these registers. Also, this year it’s possible to withdraw up to an amount of € 100 cash at the token desks.

It is obviously not allowed to pass on alcohol to minors. If you are caught on this, you will be summoned to leave the festival.

Privacy
Please note that there will be photographers and a video crew at the festival. It’s possible they will film you for the after movie, that you’ll be be seen in the full artist movie sets or at our festival pictures. Please let us know if you don’t want to be published any where. You can send an e-mail to: info@thesoundofrevolution.nl.

If you have any more questions, you can ask them at the people of the Info Desk of the festival. At the Info Desk we also sell lockers, parking tickets and ear plugs if you need those and you can also get your festival map and time schedule over there.
