Short answer: No.
  • Every year we sell hundreds of pre-sale tickets online, before the fest. When they are sold out, they are sold out.
  • We can't reserve tickets for you, and you can't buy one-day tickets online.
  • During the fest, we will be selling three-day tickets and one-day tickets at the door as well. The ticket sale starts Friday at 17 (5 pm), so we recommend getting here early.
Short answer: No.
  • We are aware that there are some problems with Billetto, and that Billetto has increased their fees (again), but at this point it’s too late for us to change to another ticket provider. Sorry!
  • We will look into this and can hopefully offer a better solution for the years to come. Thanks for your patience and understanding.
Sadly, we cannot offer any accommodation for our guests as we have no space at the venue and camping isn’t possible in the surrounding area. Instead we recommend that you have a look at the following places:
  • Sleep in Heaven – Backpacker-type hostel in Nørrebro (5 min. by bus).
  • Bellahøj Camping - 1 km from the venue. For many years we've had a special deal with Bellahøj Camping meaning that visitors with a 3-day festival pass, will get a discount on camping . When using Bellahøj Camping please be aware of the following rules and guidelines:
  • It is okay to bring a camera to the fest, but please think about who and what your at filming or taking pictures of.  Ask the people you are photographing and respect and 'no', if they don't want to be photographed or filmed. Please also think about where you upload your pictures/films - some people do not want to be on public display and that should be respected.
  • Taking pictures of and filming performing bands is okay, but the same rules still apply.
  • If you would like to film or take pictures for use in any media, you need to check with the Info Point at our fest. If you plan on bringing a big camera rig you should check with the organizers group first (write us at ktownhardcorefest@gmail.com).
  • We don't do accreditation of any kind - you will have to buy your own festival ticket!
Parking of vehicles around the venue and on Dortheavej is reserved for our neighbors and traveling bands only, sorry!
  • Food: The festival is 100% vegan, meaning that all food served at the festival will be without meat, eggs and dairy. We intend for the different food options available at the fest to be delicious, varied and at reasonable prices. Previously we’ve had sandwiches, hot-dogs, burgers and a dinner plate for sale. Food for guests will be served from a food stall/snack-bar in the courtyard. Prices range from 15 DKK (2€) to 30 DKK(4,5€).
  • the Info Point is the nerve center of the festival, and one or more of the festival groups members will be present at all times, except from 00.00 to 10.00. The Info Point serves coffee, snacks and sells festival merch. If you need any kind of information, first aid or have experienced any kind of harassment, please come and talk to us here. We are here to help.
  • Distros: There will be a distro area at the fest, with records and merch from the performing bands. If you run a punk label or have a distro and would like a spot, please write to us (ktownhardcorefest@gmail.com). Please note that you still need to buy a festival ticket for the days you want to have your distro up (bands excluded).
  • Local shopping opportunities: The venue is located in the middle of the city, and several shopping opportunities are nearby. Ask in the Info Point for more info, and please no five-finger-discounts (!!) as this can get us in trouble with our neighbors. Also beware that bringing a whole case of beer or a bottle of hard liquor to the festival grounds is uncool.
  • Absolutely not! Dogs are not allowed at the festival grounds.
  • Don't bring your dog and don't chain them outside the festival grounds either.
  • Drunk punx, spiky clothes, shattered glass bottles and loud music for three days is not a good environment for you four-legged friend to be in.
