Yes, you read it right: the 3rd day of Into The Grave 2019 will be completely free of charge to enter! The festival takes place this year for the 9th time in center Leeuwarden in the Netherlands. Into The Grave is held on the Oldehoofsterkerkhof square, the former graveyard next to the Oldehove. Hence the name of the festival. This location is unique and adds a good accessibility to the festival. Into The Grave is very thankful to the city and its inhabitants. This year Into The Grave is giving something back under the form of a 3rd ‘free’ day. The festival normally takes place on Friday and Saturday. This year they add the Sunday to that, so in other words Into The Grave will take place on 9, 10 and 11 August.
On that 3rd day, Swedish progressive metal outfit Opeth will close down the festival. This day is open for free to everyone, but visitors with a valid combi ticket will be taken in first.
The square will open its doors starting from 13.00 on for visitors with a combi ticket. Starting from 14.00 the doors will be open for everyone without a ticket. They will let people on the festival grounds as long as the capacity allows it (6500 visitors). For those who want to be sure to get access to the square, we offer an extra day ticket for the Sunday. If you have such a day card you always can get in. These tickets are available for 20 euros. If you sleep on the camping you of course can stay for an extra night without you having to pay extra for it.
Now that it’s known that the 3rd and free day will be closed down by Opeth, it’s also known on which days the already announced bands will be playing. So if you want to know when your favorite band will play, go have a look at the website now: www.intothegrave.nl.
