11. What are the best concert places?

Normally, all seats on the Market square are good seats but of course the first rank seats are closer to the stage than the second and third rank seats. However, we place extra speakers halfway the field to create a nice sound on the entire Market. Keep in mind that it is always possible that camera people or the “camera crane” can temporarily obstruct your view.I

12. Which chairs are being used?

We have deliberately opted for wide and comfortable seats (bucket seats). This provides more seating comfort.

13. Can I watch the concert at one of the catering establishments on the Market in Kerkrade?

The restaurants of the Marktet in Kerkrade offer all kinds of delicious dinner and terrace packages especially for this concert. Before the performance, you can enjoy an arrangement at your favorite establishment and experience the concert from there while enjoying a glass of wine. Keep in mind that the sight lines at the catering establishments, due to trees, technology;-  and camera placement, may be more limited than on the market square itself. The catering arrangements can be purchased at the relevant catering establishments on the Markt in Kerkrade. We will soon provide an overview of the contact details and booking options of the participating restaurants on our website. We are not liable for the culinary content, the price and the sale of the packages.


14. Do I have a good view on the stage and the artist?

The market in Kerkrade is a medium-sized square. You imagine yourself as a concert visitor in an attractively decorated concert arena, where you can see the concert from almost all angles. Video screens will also be placed to the left and right of the stage.

15. Is there a wardrobe where I can leave my coat?

No, there is no wardrobe. We are counting on beautiful weather. In case of bad weather, umbrellas are not allowed due to the TV recordings. After all, these could obstruct your view of the stage.

Yes, there are wheelchair seats reserved in the front of section E and section C.

Additional toilet facilities are also being created behind the market.
