Should you unexpectedly bring a larger baggage item, then you can leave your items at the lockers outside the Ziggo Dome (not the AFAS Live venue) prior to the entrance. These lockers open one hour before show and close one hour after show, so be on time with getting your stuff out of there.

Deposit recycle system

We work with a deposit system on all cups during this event. At the entrance, our visitors receive a free recycle token which they can use at the bar when ordering drinks. All empty cups can be returned to the bar for a new drink or recycle token. By doing this, we make sure that all materials are collected and sorted in the right container. After the event, each material is recycled. This way of recycling is very easy, with much love for nature and a perfect way to reduce our waste!

How does it work?

  1. At the entrance, after scanning your ticket, you’ll receive 1 FREE recycle token from us.
  2. With each drink you order, you hand in your recycle token or an empty cup.
  3. Lost your recycle token and/or your cup? Then you have to pay 0.5 regular token.
  4. When you don’t want to have a new drink, you can hand in your empty cup at the bar.
  5. The bar staff will give you your recycle token in return.

Verknipt maintains a zero tolerance policy on drugs. It is forbidden to use, trade or posses any drugs at the event. When the organization spots or confirms any infringements, the offender can be handed over to the police. When the delinquent is being caught he/she will be transferred over to the police. Before entering the event you will be able to deposit drugs in the designated drug bins without being charged with any consequences.

Why does Verknipt have ‘sealed tickets’?

Verknipt uses these sealed tickets because the ticket sale will be fairer. By using these tickets, it makes it impossible for scammers to resell their tickets through unofficial third parties/secondary markets. Tickets can only be sold through our verified partner ‘TicketSwap’ by Secure Swap. Through Secure Swap they exchange the ticket for a brand new one, so the buyer has a 100% chance to get into the event with the ticket. Also, it is not possible for sellers to ask more than 120% of the price through TicketSwap, so the ticket will always be sold for a fair price.

Is it possible to resell my ‘sealed tickets’?

If you decide to sell your ticket, it is only possible to do so through our verified partner ‘TicketSwap’. You need your confirmation email to view your order. At the bottom of your order you will find a blue button, click the button to resell the tickets on TicketSwap. Only this way you can resell your tickets.
