He can do that by the list we provided what we would bring along and make a raw sketch of how to place the noiciest people far far far far faaaar away..hahaha biggrin.gif seriously..with so many people i can imagine if someone reaaly want a serious listen experience with an open backed headphone u need a bit of rest around u.. smily_headphones1.gif
Well..maybe i am nitpicking...but have a thought bout it..people with closed or in ear phones wont have this problem ofcourse..so they can all be put on one table and the open phone owners will have the other 21 tables wink.gif..KIDDING!
And another thing..i read here it starts at 11:00..does that mean u must have ur rig up and running also or does it mean the door opens at 11:00....or can u enter when u want? As that will make the morning a bit hectic to say the least.. redface.gif

 

Door opens at 11:00, come anytime you like and set up when you feel like it. Door closes at 16:00 though, everything should be packed before then.

Listen to every song on ffwd? ;)

 

But I think they won't mind if people really need more time and decide to stay for another hour or so. It'll be fine. :)

We should try out all the powerhungry, wall-outlet dependant stuff first.... We can continue with the mobile gear in the parkinglot after we get kicked out :)

Last time you bailed out at the very last second to go to a "concert" in stead.

I just had to go home and cry in bed

Hey, you only listen to headphones when you can't hear the band perform live right? So what do you do when you CAN hear the band live? You don't go listen to headphones! ;)

We will put you in the cellar deadhorse.gif.

 

On another note.. everyone going home directly after, or are there some people who'd like to grab something to eat or just a beer, coca cola or milk somewhere in Heerlen or so?

You can park the car safely behind a locked gate at the venue. No way is anyone getting in there. Besides, it's freakin Limburg. Only eldery people live there and they can't even lift your amp, let alone steal it and run away with it.

I think you're worrying too much! Heerlen has once won the price for the worst city in the Netherlands to live in. I did have my bike stolen in front of the police station where they had to cut through quite a big chain. I stole a bike after that in front of a turkish cellphone shop while the owner of the bike was looking. One of his friends later stole it back. I did trade rolling papers with a guy for helping him spread cocaine on his cigarette. I did give alcohol to the bums. People have been shooting in the area I lived in, and I went out with a baseball bat to offer a fight to a motorcycle shop owner. My girlfriend back then got chased and pushed off of the road because people wanted her to buy their drugs (she doesn't do drugs), Heerlen and it's sub Hoensbroek are known for creating some of the hardest softdrugs in the world, and the police is not to be trusted completely. But besides that, it's really nice ;). I wouldn't worry too much if I was you, there's not too much happening these days!!

Stealing bikes happens all around the country.

A couple weeks ago I was parking my bike in Utrecht, and there was a homeless dude with a big bolt cutter standing a couple meters away from me cutting the chain of some bike. I glanced at him nonchalantly, parked my bike, and went to the train station. A couple weeks before that people stole my front light: they removed the bolts and cut the wire. Additionally, they also removed the batteries from my back light.
You'd have to be surprised if your bike does not get stolen, rather than if it does.
