Rock Werchter is completely sold-out. The last one-day tickets for Friday, July 4 were sold earlier today. A total of 67,500 combi tickets and 20,500 one-day tickets per festival day have been sold. This year Rock Werchter expects 88,000 festival attendees per day. Important announcement: The resale of tickets is now possible under certain circumstances.

There is a legal framework that curbs the resale of tickets. The Belgian law of 30 July 2013 con-cerning the sale of tickets to events states that: 

  • - The occasional resale of tickets is allowed if the sale price is not higher than the definitive price that is on the ticket.
  • - The non-occasional or regular reselling, or making platforms available where non-occasional resale can take place or where the price can exceed the maximum permitted price is prohibited.
  • - The sale of free tickets, invitations, sponsor tickets or special offers of tickets before the official sale date is prohibited.
  • - The victim of above mentioned practices can reclaim from the reseller the excess amount paid.

Nevertheless, the trade in festival tickets on parallel markets is rampant. Contrary to tickets pur-chased via the official ticket channels, tickets purchased on the black market do not guarantee validity. All too often we find that fraudulent tickets are offered via these channels. It is possible that tickets purchased on a parallel market are on the blacklist, so the access to the festival will be refused. Rock Werchter will continue to make potential attendees aware of this. We offer an online exchange service on www.rockwerchter.be. It's a handy tool for those who want to resell or purchase a ticket occasionally and in accordance with the law. Tickets purchased via this exchange service are awarded to those who are registered on the waiting list. More information is available from www.rockwerchter.be and www.ilovemyticket.be.
