Arny, what will happen if I buy the ticket but in March the borders will be closed for Ukrainians?

We’ll see. Some countries in Europe close the borders for us again even for the fully vaccinated. Booster shot is not available in Ukraine yet. Travel insurance here costs almost as tickets themselves…
I guess I will wait and probably jump into in March if it will be available.

Be safe and good luck, man) be in touch!

Just let me know if you want and can come, I'll put you on the guestlist, so you don't have to worry about tickets not being refundable. When there isn't an alternative date, Grenswerk mostly refunds all tickets.

Thanks Arny)

I am busy with ticket search and got a question)
What is the best way to get to Venlo? From Amsterdam or may be Koln or Dusseldorf?

Dusseldorf would be the one for Germany, since Koln / Bonn is really al long train ride.

Maybe look in to Eindhoven Airport, they have an intercity every half an hour or more and it is only 30 minutes from Venlo. From Eindhoven Central, but they have good busses etc from the airport to Eindhoven Central.

Weeze is another option, but has poor connections with trains etc.

Amsterday (Schiphol) is about 2 hrs by train, and has some good connections to Venlo, depending on the state of our National Railway Company. That depends on the weather really Wink

Since this year's edition is in March I reckon weather will not be an issue, even for Dutch Railways.

News update:

For those that were worried about the strickt Covid lockdown rules in the Netherlands. Most of them are suspended untill a week after Aloha Fest. We can have NO LIMITS edition for the first time in 2 years. No more 1,5 meter rules, no more sitting shows, mosh pits and dancing are allowed and masks are no longer mandatory.

A small thing remains: a proof of vaccination is still required, but it can be that around march 12 (date of festival) it is not requested any more. I keep you informed about that on this post.

It looks like Aloha Fest 5 is gonna be the only big (indoor) surf festival in Europe (aplying the Big Tiki Dude law of surf festivals 'It is only a festival if 4 bands or more are playing). So I can proudly say we are also the biggest surf festival in Europe this year Wink

So book your hotel, flight, rental car, bike! If you need any hotel suggestions, let me know in replies.

Working on discount on some hotel bookings at the moment, but can't promise anything. Just try booking.com, they have mostly the best options. And then contact the hotel or B&B directly for even cheaper prices.

No politics intended but Ukraine isn't member of the EU (neither is the UK anymore)

It is just a PR statement we are gonna use the next week! Wink

Stay save and we have your back with Putin, we will overload Russia with Reverb if things go wrong!

And Aloha Sluts are open to offers for playing the Ukraine!

See ya soon!
