Here’s the official statement posted on August 9th:
Ieperfest 2016 coming up at the end of the week!! Weather forecast looks good, so that’s a welcome bonus for sure!! We added 6 more bands in order to replace an equal amount that pulled out. It’s far from obvious to find decent replacements on such short notice, we’re quite happy with the end result. Please note that, due to other obligations, H2O (Sat) and DEEZ NUTS (Sun) will be playing early slots. Make sure to be in time if you wanna see them.
The long awaited schedule is now also available. Apologies for the delay but it’s simply not possible to spread a schedule if the line-up isn’t fully complete.
Pre-sale has been speeding up these last weeks. Thanks for that! Please note that pre-sale ends Thursday evening 11 August at midnight so don’t hesitate and get your tickets now.
Prices at the door will be as follows: Weekend: 106€, Weekend + camping: 118€, Day: 55€, Day + camping: 65€
