GUIDE ON HOW TO ORDER TICKETS ONLINE FOR CONCERTS IN THE NETHERLANDS
This guide is a manual on how to buy tickets when you’re living of staying in another country.
Livenation.nl is the official website to purchase concert- and festivaltickets in The Netherlands. In a couple of short steps this guide will explain how you can order your tickets online. We would like to underline that original tickets can only be ordered via www.livenation.nl and our ticketing partner Ticket Master. Only if you buy tickets on these two websites, access to the event is assured.
- An account on www.ticketmaster.nl
- Adobe Reader (to print e-tickets)
- Home banking (iDeal via SNS, FrieslandBank, ASN Bank, SNS Regio Bank, Triodos, Rabobank, ABN AMRO, Fortis or ING) or a Creditcard (Eurocard/Mastercard, Visacard)
Please note: to order tickets via our website you need a valid credit card (VISA, Eurocard/Mastercard). Due to fraud prevention the country of origin of the credit card must be the same as the country where you are trying to book tickets from. If you don't have a Credit card that is registered in The Netherlands or home banking in The Netherlands, please order tickets via our call center.
Tickets can be ordered via our international call center on phone number (+31) 88 123 2425, up to six days before the event date. The call center can be reached from Monday through Friday from 9:00 AM to 9:00 PM, as well as Saturday and Sunday from 10:00 AM to 8:00 PM. You can pay for your order with a money transfer. Upon payment, your tickets will be sent to your home address.
