It's been some years since they played in Luxembourg - it's a strange time to have gig though since it's over a year ago that Scare Yourself was released in Luxembourg. Anyway good luck - I hope you can fill the 800 capacity venue! (What are the odds? Smiley-wink )

@Ginger:
What I ment is: If anyone from Denmark is going, maybe we should carpull... Make a fun DAD Roadtrip trip of it.

Depending on how many, we just need a bigger car or bus:)

The car I drive can onky hold 4 (5if we cramp). That will make a nice social trip Smiley-laugh

There is around 900KM from where I am, but we (or I) can pick ppl up in Kolding and all the way down through Germany.

Airline ticket can be bought from ca.2000 to 3000DKr and a carpull can make the trip MUCH cheaper...and we can fill the trunk with cheap beer when we drive back... Its a WIN WIN situation ;)

Our plan (at the moment) is to fly from Edinburgh to Koln on the Saturday, then drive to Lux. After the concert, drive back to Koln, grab a few hours sleep somewhere, & fly home Sunday.

Crazy I know, but it'll be so, so worth it. Smiley Smiley Smiley

WIW
My plan is to get to Copenhagen in early June, then hang out here and there and practise my tiny Danish, then get to Lux (somehow - by train, bus or just hitchhike). So your carpull thing seems very attractive. No, I don't drive, but I can: aerograph you car with special design (in fact - any car), sing nasty songs with a nasty voice and give some Russian lessons. Plus, I have magnificent skill to get money from the air and solve any problems, so I can be a very useful companion Smiley

SAS has 8tickets left at around 1300DKr to Luxembourg if you fly out saturday and return sunday.

A bus (that can hold 9ppl) will cost 3DKr pr KM (lets just say taht there is a 1000KM to be sure and a 1000 back) and rental at 1000DKR (inc 100KM).

So with a little luck 8ppl could do this for around 875 / 900 DKr each (+ticket).

And its a nice bus. I have rented at this place a few times before and never had any troubles. And its allowed to drive outside Denmark as well. Not all car-rental frims allow that.

The most central pickup place would be Kolding as all freeways and trains go through there.

[EDIT]
But if we go in a smaller car and only go 4 persons...

Then around 500Dkr should do the trick...

Hi there,

I'm not new to this board but usually I don't write too much in here (well, actually I wrote nothing so far as I see.....) but I've been following this board for almost 6 or 7 years now. Anyway this Luxemburg show came really as a surprise to me and even though I live in Germany this show is much closer to my hometown than a lot of shows in Germany that I usually attend.

So, to make along story short, I could give a lift to 2 - 3 people from abroard if they are coming somewhere near Cologne (Köln) - bacause that's the direction I have to go anyway. Could be fun.......and YOU supply the drinks *he he*

It's just an offer - feel free to contact me.

P.S. I'll be going back home after the show but I could take you back to where I picked you up before !

I'll email you when I get home in a few hours - hang on to those car spaces for now!!

12 weeks tomorrow (but then, who's counting??!)

I'm all set; flights, tickets, hotel, ride from Koln & back with LongHorn (thank you sweetie pie).

And all for under £200 for both of us!!!

(But that's not including beer money and some of you that are going, I owe BIG time!!!)

I've a smile as wide as a mile, and a new set of goosebumps every time I think of it.

Yes Curly, there is something special about Lux. The atelier is well known and has got a reputation as a brillant place to start off a tour among the artists ...

i am already thinking of making a real event of it, big bally-hoo and stuff before and/or after . Hooking up with some fellow Net Pets. My humble hut is situated not far from cologne, between dusseldorf and monchengladbach (about 10 miles from dusseldorf airport).

Watcha say, guys? Anyone in from northern germany or from the cologne area? Any Danes making their way to the venue? Someone need a place to sleep before/after the show?... Walt is your host!

I will post again another time, another place.

Yeeeehaw F:O:L:K:S, it took some time to get the decision done b-b-b-but now it's for sure I'm to join this nice international crowd that will show up june 7th in Luxembourg - and I'm looking SO DAMN MUCH forward to this so to say Xtra-Show...

JPV: Would really really love to see you again this way, it's been way too many years since NYE 1999/2000...

MarcusExMachina: Though I'll start from southside of the Ruhrpott and will stay the night in Luxembourg in some cheap hotel as I don't like the idea of having a 230km ride back after the show I like the idea of having a drink (or two ;-)) with the NetPets showing up for the show, shouldn't be THAT hard to find a place for that close to the venue, huh?

Wish I could go too, I really do, but I have exams the day before and the day after so I guess it's not going to happen. But to all of you other lucky people have a nice trip and enjoy the concert. Hope to se some of you i denmark later this year.

Curly: you know there is a boat that goes straight from Harwich (england) to Esbjerg (denmark) were D-A-D often plays. It's my home town and WrittenInWaters too so if you get hooked on the lux. concert and want more then Esbjerg is the place to go:-)

Did a bit of surfing and came up with this:

Airplane:
Billund - Lux
Dep. Saturday the 7th: 0645 - arr.0955
Lux - Billund
Dep. Sunday the 8th: 1810 - arr. 2220

Cost 2325DKr

Or a traveltime of 6h50m if we wanna get the cost down to 2097DKr.
And waiting for over 6h at Frankfurt airport is NOT as fun as it may sound.

Car rental:
For a 9person bus at Hertz 4643 DKr or 7 person for 4425DKr - I once drove for these guys, new busses and cars, but expensive!

For a 9person bus at PS-Biludejning for the weekend inc. 250Km.
2600Dkr + 3Dkr pr KM + the fule we are gonna use.
And there is about 1000 to Lux...and a 1000 back ;)
A quick math:
2000Km in all*3Dkr = 6000Dkr
The bus runs 8Km on a L of gas (2000/8=250)* 10 Dkr pr. L if we are lucky = 2500DKr in fule.

So with those numbers we come to this:
2600(rental)+6000(KM money)+2500(fule money)=11100DKr/9 (if we are 9 (NINE) persons going) = 1233 Dkr each.

So its gonna cost a pretty penny + in Lux its not easy to find a cheap hotel.

And then we need the ticket at €30 and a hotel to crash in after the show...or we can sleep in the bus. I dont care Smiley-midget

The alternative is we go in a private car. That will make it cheaper, but then we cant "all go together".
I think a max of 4persons in a normal car is enough when its a 8 to 9 hour drive...in the summer heat (hopefully).

Your thoughts on this, please Smiley-midget

Or maybe you know of a better/cheaper way?
- Im not walking, running og riding a bike...unless it has a motor! Smiley-laugh

A suggestion conc. hotels - try www.booking.com - it has very useful comments and user ratings, and the maps make it easy to locate the hotels closest to the train station, which is also close to den Atelier.
Some of the hotels closest to the station are also the cheapest ones, maybe because this district is one of the less nicer ones in Lux. city, as is often the case with station areas! But I guess it doesn't matter that much if you only have to crash for one night Smiley
And still, Lux. is considered to be a quite safe place to stay, compared to other larger cities.

And then concerning the parking, it can be difficult to find a spot close to the hotels, but there are a couple of parking houses close to den Atelier (which is on Rue de Hollerich) - check out this link: http://www.vdl.lu/index.php?id=3912585&start=no&style=n&vdl_f=quartier&v...
