For the 2020 edition of the festival GUTS will supply the digital tickets. This partnership promises a user friendly and honest experience for the tens of thousands of visitors, once the sale goes live on January 15th.

About Oerrock
The three-day festival in the province of Friesland has drawn big crowds since it was founded in 2000. What started as a group of friends trying to create some excitement in their town of Ureterp, has grown to a huge yearly party with over 35.000 visitors.

Spread out over three days, fans who enjoy a good time and popular Dutch artists such as Bløf, Kensington, Douwe Bob en Anouk all flock to the overflowing town, which itself has less than 5.000 inhabitants. Plenty of excitement!

The team behind Oerrock is happy with the change. Kees-Jan Dijk, treasurer at the festival:

‘We think this step is beneficial for our festival and our visitors. And of course it’s a huge improvement that we are now preventing all unwanted resale of tickets.’

About GUTS
Ever since GUTS Tickets was founded in 2016, their team of nearly thirty people has been proving that ticketing can be done easier, more honest and even more fun — both for fans and event organizers. Thanks to innovative technology, visitors are protected from scalping and ticket fraud. Additionally, event organizers and fans are brought closer together through features such as direct communication, which allows text messages to be sent to the smartphone of an attendee.

Already hundreds of thousands of digital tickets have been sold; comedian Jochem Myjer has sold out an entire tour using the system, and singer Guus Meeuwis is ticketing his popular ‘Groots Met Een Zachte G’ stadium shows through GUTS as well.

Maarten Bloemers, founder and CEO of GUTS:

‘We are proud to work with such a likeable and sincere organisation. Together, we’ll provide the visitors of Oerrock an awesome and carefree weekend.’
