DONG 2018 – RUNNING ORDER AND DAY PASSES

Monday, May 28th, 2018



Our friends of the DONG Open Air have news:

Dear metal lovers,
many of you have already asked for it: The Running Order of the Dong Open Air 2018 is online as of today. Thus, you can now check when you need to be fit because your favorite band is playing! And maybe you’ll also discover a promising candidate you didn’t know yet.
Next Wednesday, 30 May, the day tickets will also go on sale. The demand for weekend tickets has again been higher than in the previous year. As a result, the allotments of day tickets are somewhat smaller still. So don’t hesitate and visit our shop, because if you’re late, you’ll lose out!
The 3-day-tickets are, of course, still on sale.

Let’s make the third weekend of July the fattest party of the year together!
Your Dong Team
