The Dutch fest had shifted all 55,000 tickets in one hour and 45 minutes, much quicker than the three days it took in 2012.
Van Eerdenburg’s been in a similar position for the last three years as the 2011 edition sold out in two hours.
It was a little quicker that year, as the festival, which is run by the Live Nation-owned Mojo Concerts, brought forward the onsale to save fans from being hit by a hike in the Dutch VAT rates, which was to go from 6 percent to 19 percent.
It amounted to a saving of a little more than $26 on the $218 ticket.
“Friday started with a lot of rain. Saturday and Sunday were the best possible festival weather. Not too hot, no cold nights,” was the favourable weather report.
