Q-dance Flag

Vi skriver ut lite då och då, i samband med alla resor till Q-dances olika event att Coretours är exklusiv partner i Skandinavien – men vad menas med det, egentligen?

 

Vilka är Q-Dance?

 

Knappt att de behöver en presentation egentligen. Q-dance är nämligen en av de ledande och största arrangörerna inom hard dance music i världen och det namn de flesta av oss känner till. De kan stoltsera med evenemang som bland annat Defqon.1 och Qlimax, som är event med upp till 85 000 besökare och även de kanske mest kända eventen inom hardstylevärlden. Varje år har Q-dance flera egna event, egna Q-dancescener på andra festivaler samt event de gör tillsammans med andra festivalarrangörer, till exempel Dominator, som görs tillsammans med Art of Dance. Coretours försöker åka till så många som möjligt av deras evenemang. Den största resan vi har är till Defqon.1 Festival, där vi 2019 hade hela 556 resenärer som följde med oss (!)

Coretours to Defqon.1

Exklusiv partner efter många års samarbete


Vid evenemang som Coretours anordnar resor till är vi officiell partner med arrangören och har ett nära samarbete, men med Q-dance har vi tagit det steget längre och blivit exklusiv partner. Detta betyder att vi är de enda i Skandinavien som får anordna resor med evenemangsbiljetter till deras egna festivaler och event. Att få ett sådant förtroende för en så pass stor arrangör är för oss ovärderligt, och ni som våra resenärer får då en extra garanti på att vi är väl accepterade av arrangören. Eftersom vi alltid är partner med alla kan vi garantera att biljetterna kommer direkt från arrangören själv och inte är köpta någon annanstans. Vi går igenom utvärdering av dem för varje gång vi gör en resa. Vi har idag varit partner med bland annat Q-dance sedan starten 2010 och har nu ett väldigt nära och gott samarbete med dem, vilket vi hoppas på att fortsätta.

Vi visar vår dedikation

 

On Defqon.1 2019 visade vi vår dedikation till Q-dance och deras arbete lite extra genom att under KELTEKs set veckla ut vår egendesignade flagga. Det blev både uppmärksammat och uppskattat. Utöver detta har vi flera år fått ta in bland annat midsommarstång in på området för möjligheten att kunna fira midsommar på campingen. Q-Dance har gjort otroligt mycket för Coretours och vi är så tacksamma för det fantastiska samarbetet. Mycket mer är på gång..

Vilka event med Q-Dance har Coretours gjort resor till?

Vi blev själva lite nyfikna på hur många av Q-dance alla event vi egentligen har besökt och gjort resor till, så vi bestämde oss för att göra en liten lista.

Q-Dance fyller 20 år

 

Inför 2020 har vi Q-dance egna födelsedagsevent DEDIQATED, som vi ser så mycket fram emot. Det pratas fortfarande om deras galna 10-årsjubileum, och vi kan bara ana vad de har för oss att vänta inför 20-årsjubileumet. Bara ta en blick på deras enorma line-up med alla artister som kommer vara med för att fira. I början av februari är det dags. Passa på, en chans som denna får du bara en gång var tionde år.

Picture of the Qlimax scene

Every year, it is always a mystery when Qlimax tickets are to be released. However, there are some patterns from previous years that allow you to make certain assumptions. Below is the information about everything related to the tickets.

When are they released?

Depending on if you choose to buy a package of hotels, with travel or only admission ticket directly from Q-dance the release varies. Coretours, an official partner with Q-dance, has arranged trips since 2010 to the event. Our travel packages have been released over the years from the latter part of August to the later part of September.

Travel partners like us have a unique collaboration with Q-dance that makes our ticket slip different. If you want to get priority for the ticket slip then you must pre-register. You do this on the event page below trips in the menu.

What types of tickets are there?

There are two types of tickets, regular and premium tickets. Previously it was called the VIP Premium Ticket but since 2018 Q-dance has chosen to rebrand its name. If you want what differs between regular and premium tickets then you should read ours article about it.

How much do Qlimax tickets cost?

A regular regular ticket usually costs about 1000 SEK while a premium ticket is sold for about 1700 SEK. When you book a travel package with Coretours you can always choose between regular or premium tickets to Qlimax. However, keep in mind that premium tickets often sell out quickly as they are in very limited edition.

How do I get the ticket?

You get a PDF ticket either from us on the bus when the journey has started or you download it digitally via a link generated. Q-dance has slightly different models depending on what event it is.

Tickets are then scanned at the entrance to the event via a unique bar code.

Is it easy to get tickets with you?

As mentioned, we always send out an SMS and / or mail to those who have pre-registered. Everyone who has pre-registered and hangs up on the website at the time we sent out has always received tickets. Unfortunately, many people forget the date and time and thus miss the chance to book the bus they want to ride with us.

Sales via Q-dance's own channels also usually sell the sale incredibly fast.

 

Regular or VIP ticket

Should you buy a premium or regular ticket for Qlimax?

The eternal discussion that arises with the gang of friends. Should we buy a premium or regular ticket? Whether it is Qlimax, Defqon.1 or any other festival, it is the same problem. Someone thinks it is too expensive with premium and not worth it. Another thinks that their own entrance and own area are worth sacks of gold.

We will try to help you make the right decision together by clearly listing what is the difference between a premium ticket and a regular ticket.

What is included in a premium ticket for Qlimax

VIP Entrance

The VIP entrance has a shorter queue and allows you to enter the event faster. In connection with the VIP entrance there is an escalator to the VIP floor instead of stairs which is very comfortable and nice as it is a small walk up through the normal entrance.

2h previous entry to Qlimax Galaxy Lounge

Engage in the lounge with your friends and let go of the crowds as the event begins. Have a beer or why not go shopping and buy merchandise before the rest of all 28,000 visitors rush in?

VIP smoke booth

Available in close proximity to the VIP bar which means you don't have to go out of the arena to smoke.

VIP bar

In the VIP bar there is a much shorter queue than on the regular floor. Spend the night dancing and partying and not queuing.

VIP toilets (our favorite)

The best thing about the premium ticket is the decent whole and clean toilets available on the VIP floor. These toilets are often cleaned so they are whole and clean. Compared to the Chernobyl toilets that the other visitors are allowed to take, this is worth many thousands of patches to make the 2nd in peace and quiet.

VIP seating

Softer ich better seats are located just off the VIP floor.

Welcome drink and snacks

When you arrive you will receive a welcome drink and snacks. During the night, a good snack is offered at regular intervals in the VIP lounge.

VIP locker (Free)

Only if you have a premium ticket can you use lockers (storage boxes) that you can visit during the course of the event. If you have a regular ticket, you only have access to loccers when you arrive and when you go home. So you can't go and get things or put away things if you have a regular ticket.

Own words from the writer

Signed has been at Qlimax every year since 2010 and had both regular and premium ticket. So I was thinking of sharing my experiences and thoughts as a final guide for you. Note that these are subjective opinions even though I try to write impartially.

The maximum experience is of course found down on the usual dance floor that everyone has access to. The feeling and pressure found on the floor with tens of thousands of other travelers is unbeatable. Below are the most dedicated stars who are passionate about music. You can't get a better experience of the music, the light, the laser and the decoration like here.

When I've been partying and having the most fun on Qlimax, it's always been here or on Coretours stand where all Swedes gather. After all, this is the party itself, the roll and the pressure, so it's not that strange.

Having said that, in recent years it has become so that I take advantage of more and more of what the premium ticket has to offer. Being able to go into peace and quiet is nice now that you are older. Same with having access to fresh seating and more space. The congestion down on the main floor is both wonderful and difficult at the same time. It all depends on what mood you are in. Maybe with age now I prefer to have more space, seating, shorter bar queues and a place to fall back on when talking to friends in a quieter environment.

The premium toilets should also not be despised. Not having to queue for the toilets and having access to a fresh environment to make their living needs and fix them is not to be despised. You who have had VIP or premium ticket on Qlimax before understand what I'm talking about.

My last words are therefore the following; if you can't keep up all night, if you want a quieter place to fall back on, if you want less congestion and shorter queues as well as a place to sit take it a little calmer with your friends then premium ticket is worth it to the max: )

Thanks for the help. But where do I book?

Meeting place in Gelredome

Meeting place in Gelredome at the Swedish stand

It is not possible to stick under the chair because it is difficult to find each other Gelredome. When between 25,000 - 30,000 gather under the same floor, chaos will be organized :)

To enable Scandinavians to find each other, we have an official meeting place that we use every year. This part of the stands is good to use as a meeting place if you lose each other or you just want to meet other travelers.

We also try to always take group photos at this site around 23:15: D
