Dutch festival Concert at Sea today sold all weekend tickets for its 2019 edition in under two hours.
The event, which has a daily capacity of 40,000, has also sold out of day tickets for Friday 28 and Saturday 29 June 2019, with only a few day tickets for Thursday 27 June remaining, according to promoter Agents After All.
Artists performing at Concert at Sea 2019 include Nile Rodgers and Chic, Live, Guus Meeuwis, Golden Earring, Bløf (who co-organise the event with Agents After All) and Álvaro Soler.
“It’s so great to see the enthusiasm for our festival growing year after year”
Festival director Lesley Grieten comments: “It’s so great to see the enthusiasm for our festival growing year after year. We are very proud of selling so many tickets to our fans; it’s also a [reflection of] last year’s sun-blessed edition including headliners Sting and Alanis Morissette.
“We are very much looking forward to next year’s edition featuring Nile Rodgers and Chic, Live, Alvaro Soler and Holland’s biggest band, Bløf, among others”.
Concert on the Sea has been held on the four-mile-long Brouwersdam, in Zeeland, south-west Holland, since 2006. Previous headliners include Bastille, Faithless, Lenny Kravitz, Counting Crows, Skunk Anansie and Tom Odell.
