C’est ne pais un virus o quelques chose, seulement notre hônet travail!

I am a barbarophone, living in a multi linguistic country. I, therefore, am very aware of speaking the right (or wrong) language.

U mag hierover nadenken.

Just one note for our foreigners friends:
DO NOT take the package with the book unless you have a french postal address at your name, otherwise your order will be cancelled, including ticket :whistle:

And with extention, Pete is talking about METROPOLITAN France! So… .if you live in, say St. Martin, or Mayotte, or French Guyana or wherever in France, outside of continental Europe, you’re also NOT eligable for this Collectors Pack!

Ok, fuck that was sad,
was on the website since 12:20,

once It showed a queue number it was 86000.

So I got lucky, that a friend has a spare ticket, but it does not have my name.

In the last years it was never a problem to have a ticket with a different name, since they just check QR codes.

Since the resale website does not allow direct sales, there is no way that he can change one of the tickets to my name, right?


No matter what’s indicated on the ticket, there is no check at the entrance :wink:

But if you really want to change it, you still can do a private sale with your friend, on the new official exchange website, reelax-tickets.com… But i guess fees will be charged by the website

As Shakapéro said, there’s no ID check at the entrance.

However, there’s a new feature on the website which allows you to change the name on the ticket.
Your friend (the one who made the order) can visit the official website https://tickets.hellfest.fr/index_en.html and manage the tickets from there.

Hi everyone maybe it’s too early to ask, but I would like to know if there will be additional SNCF trains for the return to Nantes after the end of the concerts like last year. Thanks in advance for your answer.

Yes, it’s too early to know but I guess that SNCF is used to HF now and will do what is needed.

Tomorrow, we’ll know a few groups for HF '23.

It’s actually the full line-up announcement tomorrow Thursday December 15th, 7pm CET.

EDIT: I might also add that there will be a live stream on Hellfest’s Twitch channel at 6:30pm CET. It’ll be attended by Ben, Yoann and Hélène, who are in charge of bookings. They will discuss some of the bands booked and you might (or might not :P) have the full line-up earlier than the official announcement at 7pm CET.

There will also be an ephemeral
channel on [url=https://discord.gg/hellfestopenair]Hellfest’s official Discord where moderators will try and translate live so that non-French speakers can also discuss the event. Don’t hesitate to join. :wink:

Cancelled by Moderator’s team, no respect of the rules.

I do not know why my messages have been deleted by the Moderators. I would appreciate an explanation, with a reference to the rule that I have (allegedly) breached :expressionless: Plane tickets to Nantes for the dates of Hellfest are definitely related to the forum’s mission.
