Description:
In 2017 the Pinkpopfestival is having it's 48th edition! The most famous festival of the Netherlands has been visited by more than 2.5 million visitors in its 47 editions and sold-out 26 times. The first Pinkpop Festival took place in 1970. This makes the festival the longest running un-interrupted annual open air popfestival in Europe (this fact owed the festival a place in the Guinness Book of Records). The famous rock festival has since 1988 taken place on the splendid festival site of MEGALAND in Landgraaf. The community of Landgraaf is in the south of the Netherlands and situtated in the county of Limburg, 135 miles from Amsterdam. The music is performed on four stages on the site, which also include a vast festival market as well as three huge camping areas. The Pinkpop Festival normally takes place in Whitsun weekend **(accept for very early Whitsunweekends)** and presents a wide range of contemporary music. The successful festival has an extensive collaboration with several national media and is being broadcast live on TV and radio.
