Poängsystem

Vi har lagt till ett nytt belöningssystem till vårt bokningssystem :)

För varje beställning du gör hos Coretours från den 7 december 2019 så belönas du med poäng. För varje spenderad krona så får du 1 poäng. Dessa poäng kan sedan omvandlas till rabatt på kommande resor.

För att kunna utnyttja vårt poängsystem så måste du ha samlat ihop 10 000 poäng. När du har samlat ihop 10 000 poäng så finns ett val i kassan som gör att du kan applicera dessa poäng som en rabatt. Desto mer du reser och bokar för desto mer poäng samlar du.

3 Hardstylefestivaler du måste besöka

1. Defqon.1 (Doh!)

Ja vi vet. Det är nästan barnsligt att skriva Defqon.1 för vem har ej hört talas om Defqon.1 eller velat besöka festivalen? Men för dig som totalt missat det så är Defqon.1 ett måste att besöka minst en gång under tiden du befinner dig på jorden.

Festivalen benämns ofta som Hardstylensmoder. Här spelar över 200 artister och ett flertal genrer och subgenrer inom HDM finns representerade. Här finns alltså något för alla och en bra möjlighet att få upp ögonen (eller öronen) för nya HDM genrer. Mainstage hyser givetvis hardstyle mixat med lite rawstyle och hardcore. Men förutom det så finns det fler än 10 scener som man kan besöka. Har du dessutom köpt premiumbiljett så får du tillgång till premiumläktare och massa andra förmåner.

För många så är det inte bara själva festivalen som ger Defqon.1 ett gott namn utan även själva campingen. Vi som arrangörer av resor till festivalen märker att själva campingen och gemenskapen är en stor del av vistelsen. Bli ej förvånad om du märker dig själv ha spenderat 50% av festivalvistelsen enbart på Coretours campingområde. Om du vill spetsa din upplevelse på Coretours egna område på Defqon.1 så kan boka Coretours Gang Camp som extra tillval när du bokar din resa.

Priset för Defqon.1 är som du kan förstår högre än andra festivaler med tanke på dess storlek och produktion. Du kan läsa mer om vad det kostar att besöka Defqon.1 här.

Vill du läsa mer om Defqon.1 så kan du besöka Defqon1.se och läsa mer om själva festivalen och flertalet artiklar som handlar specifikt om Defqon.1. Glöm ej att pre-register Then you get the priority of the ticket release.

2. Intents Festival

En annan välkänd festival som växt till sig de senaste åren. Intents Festival har gått från en liten festival till en av de populäraste hardstylefestivalerna på bara några få är. Tillväxten har med andra ord varit enorm.

Det som gör att Intents Festival sticker ut är att själva festivalen och campingen är relativt liten och mysigt ihoppackad. Detta skaparen speciell atmosfär och gemenskap. Jämfört med större festivaler som Defqon1 så tar det endast ca 5min att gå från campingen till mainstage eller andra scener.

Intents satsar mycket på en bra helhetsupplevelse och därför har campingen även flertalet aktiviteter. Där ibland beerpong, sumobrottning, pingisbord, bio och massa andra trevligt som man kan göra i väntan på sin favoritartist.

3. Owl Festival

Sveriges största och i särklass bästa hardstylefestival!

Efter att föreningen F2D anordnat Hardbeach 4 gånger så valde organisationen att ta nästa steg. Owl Festival är en 2-dagarsfestival med camping i Skåne. För dig som vill stötta den svenska scenen och se mer event på hemmaplan så är denna festivalen ett måste. Owl Festival försöker efterlikna Holländskafestivaler men sätta en svensk touch på det hela.

Festivalen och camping ligger mitt ute i den svenska naturen och skogen. På campingen finns även en efterfest scen där schliret och festen pågår till småtimmarna.

Genom åren så har artister som Noize Suppressor, Da Tweekaz, Wasted Penguinz, Sefa, Paul Elstak, Audiofreq och många fler spelat på Hardbeach och Owl Festival.

Intents Festival 2020
Förregistrering till Intents Festival 2020. Förregistrering ger dig förtur till biljettsläppet. Registreringen är ej bindande :)

1. Storleken på festivalen och campingen

Gillar du att gå i 30min för att byta scen eller springa till campingen? Då är inte Intents en festival för dig för där ligger allt nära. Allt från att nå festivalentrén till att handla öl och mat. Att campingen är så kompakt att det bara tar 5 min att korsa den gör hela upplevelsen ännu bättre. Borta är långa vandringar för att nå den aktivitet eller föda du är ute efter.

2. De bästa artisterna lirar

De prioriterar bra musik före musik som är populärt nu. Intents vill att de duktigaste och bästa artisterna spelar inte de som drar in mest likes på facebook. Tack vare denna vision så har evenemanget ett varierande utbud av artister som levererar kvalitet.

3. Gemenskapen och endast dedikerade besökare

Detta är en festival för de dedikerade! Defqon.1 Festival or Tomorrowland är festivaler där många åker på sin första festival. fast på intents så märker man att de allra flesta är mer dedikerade inom scenen och åker dit för musiken och alla människor och inte bara för att de är en cool festival! Det känns underground fast det är en stor festival!

IntentsCity gemenskapen

4. HDM musik för alla

Det finns musik för alla. De har allt från uptempo till HDM mixad hip-hop / house. Har du någon vän som tvekar på HDM så finns här alltid någon mjukare stil att falla tillbaka på.

5. Vädret

Av någon outgrundlig anledning så brukar Intents Festival pricka av de dagarna då det är som bäst väder i Nederländerna. Givetvis finns det undantag som 2015 då det blev storm men annars har flertalet av alla upplagor lyckats flörta med moder natur. Vädret känns alltid exotiskt här. Kanske är det bara vi som är vidskepliga men de är så här vi känner när vi minns tillbaka i alla fall.

6. Utnämnd till Hollands bästa festival

Intents Festival har blivit utnämnd till Nederländernas bästa festival 2 gånger av Festivalchart. Bara det säger väl något om varför du måste besöka festivalen?

7. Mysfaktorn

Bilden säger allt. Du ser själv hur mysigt och vackert allt är uppradat och designat på campingen. Det känns som att komma till en ny värld.

8. Scendekorationen

…är helt magisk!

3 Reasons Why You Should Celebrate NYE at EPIQ in Amsterdam

Celebrate New Years Eve at EPIQ in Amsterdam, organized by Q-dance. Doesn’t that sound really epic?

Q-dance, known organizer of hardstyle parties like Qlimax and Defqon.1 to name few is hosting a new New Years Eve party in Ziggo Dome.

EPIQ is the new name of the replacement for WOW WOW and FREAQSHOW, former NYE parties in Amsterdam.

So, why do we think that you should spend your New Year at EPIQ?

1. EPIQ is the biggest New Years Eve event for the harder styles

Do you love hardstyle, rawstyle, hardcore and frenchcore as much as we do? Do you love artists such as Headhunterz, Sefa, Rooler and Deadly Guns?

The line-up is yet to be announced. But we can promise one thing, the line-up will be AMAZING! Every Q-dance event we have visited around New Years Eve has been a blast in the view as line-up and production. A visit to EPIQ will definitively be one of your best NYE ever!

Stage decoration, sound quality, the dedication of the harder styles audience – it can’t simply be described by words. You need to experience it by yourself!

2. Amsterdam itself is a magical city

Amsterdam, famous for a lot of stuff. But anyhow what it is famous for is that here is something for everyone! The capital itself is a wonderful place to visit all around the year but especially during New Year.

Our tour to our NYE event is always planned so you can experience Amsterdam a few hours before the party. By that we mean that we are arriving with the bus earlier than we are usually doing to events.

Why not take a canal tour? Why not visiting a fancy restaurant before the long night that await? Why not visit some bars or coffee shops?

Amsterdam, famous for its liberality has something for everyone. There is even small hardstyle pre-parties around the town before the doors to EPIQ opens.

3. Meet people that LOVES the same music as YOU

Tired of visiting parties that plays the same mainstream radio music every time? We we’re too before we started to rave and listen to HDM.

On the bus will you meet people that is traveling for this amazing music and to celebrate the NYE.

Ask yourself the following question. What could be better than being with people that loves the same music as you and partying with them and celebrate the New Year?

That was a hard question because there is nothing better than that ;)

We promise that you will have a magical journey with the tour leaders and travelers on the bus.

So what are you waiting for? What is your reason to not attend to Q-dance new New Years Eve party this year?

DEDIQATED – 20 years of Q-dance

Efter 10års väntan så är Q-dance nästa jubileumsfest, DEDIQATED, tillbaka. Evenemangat arrangeras i Gelredome i Arnhem den 8 februari mellan 12:00 – 23:00. Det är samma arena som hyst bland annat Qlimax and Hard Bass.

Coretours är officiell partner med Q-dance och kommer att arrangera resa inklusive entrébiljett dit.

Förregistrering till DEDIQATED.

Vad kan vi förvänta oss?

När Q-dance hade sitt första 10-årsjubileum 2010 så arrangerades det i Amsterdam Arena. Evenemanget utmärkte sig med att scener från andra evenemang som Defqon.1 och Qlimax var uppbyggda inne i arenan. Line up var fantastiskt då de blandad de största artisterna just då med de som var med och skapade hardstylen från start.

Vi kan vara säkra på att Q-dance kommer att återspegla hardstylens historia men stilar som rawstyle och hardcore finns representerade. Evenemanget i sig kommer säkerligen att ha en varierad publik. Från de som växte upp med early hardstyle runt 2000-talet till den nya generationen.

Hur får jag tag i biljetter till DEDIQATED?

Vi är officiell partner med Q-dance och ger dig möjligheten att boka resepaket med biljett till eventet. Genom att förregistrera dig ovan så får du förtur till vårt biljettsläpp samt den senaste informationen om DEDIQATED. De flesta av våra resor till Q-dance festivaler och event säljer alltid slut.

Men Hard Bass då?

Som många av er säkert vet så arrangerades det sista Hard Bass 2019. b2s, arrangören bakom Hard Bass har ännu ej utannonserat en ersättare. Ni som har koll på datumen märker att DEDIQATED – 20 Years of Q-dance ligger på den helg som Hard Bass normalt arrangeras på. Därför får vi kanske infinna oss att Hard Bass ersättare iaf ej arrangeras under den tid som Hard Bass gjorde. Men detta är ett ypperligt tillfälle för er som älskade eventet och arenanan att återbesöka den men för att fira att Q-dance fyller 20år.

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?

You book yours travel packages to Qlimax here.

Baguette

Pre-order your baguette for the rest stop in Germany.

Why should I buy a baguette?

The problem lies in the fact that we will arrive at more than 500 rugged souls at the food stop in Dammer Berge. The reason we stay here is partly for the EU statutory break and that we have activities such as Merchandise, Group photo, Drinks and more.

If you do not buy a baguette, you can expect a queue of between 1 - 2h inside the food stop. We want to minimize this so that it is faster to get to the event / festival but also so that you can participate in the activities outside.

How do I get my baguette?

We leave it to you at a station at the break stop.

What are the baguettes?

  • Cheese & Ham
  • Vegetarian
  • Cheese & Ham (Gluten Free)
  • Vegetarian (Gluten Free)

What is the advantage of buying a baguette now?

We order the same number of baguettes as it comes in orders. We take a symbolic sum of SEK 59 for a tasty baguette with cheese & ham or vegetarian box. Should there be any baguette left at the break stop, the price will be significantly higher so we recommend that everyone pre-order.

I have gluten or any other allergy :(

Send us an email after you have booked your baguette so we order a gluten free or vegetarian :)

What are Rave Clothes?

Ravekläder is a Swedish-run company that has chosen to offer stylish high-quality rave clothes.
Does that sound like nichat? That's it, but the company is created by people like you and me, travelers of Coretours and party prizes in other words.
Although Rave clothes have not been on the market for so long, most DJs (MVTATE, Eternityz, Freddz, Radera, D-Charged etc) have already signed up and many customers have received packages that have given them big smiles on their lips.

We at Coretours have also chosen to enter into partnership with Ravekläder and we are very pleased with the quality of everything from clothes to print, that it is also created by a frequent travel leader just made the matter better.

Are not rave clothes just that big pants and pacifiers in neon?

Maybe ... For some? But not for us. For us, it's not about who has the most neon or who has the most colorless, unmatched pairs of knee socks. For us, it's about getting your dedication just as you want.
Many of us do not want to show it in the form as it is described above. We want a relatively normal pattern, a bunch of flamingos, or just a small clean text that tells people "Here I am, I love Hardcore, fuck you!" But also want to have it at work.

Frenchcore - Maroon

I bought merch once, the pressure was full after a wash and it hung like a sack of potatoes

We've all been there. You buy that nice merch shirt for type 600 kronor, it is still nice and is it so expensive it must have good quality, right?
Then you wash it once, maybe two, and suddenly it is cracks in the print and the shirt looks like it was bought at flea market 10 years ago.

With rave clothes, it is different. Just because we know about the despair of buying those expensive clothes, we also know that we do not want to expose our customers to the same frustration that we ourselves have gone through year after year.
Therefore, we have chosen to let print clothes that have received good reviews all over the internet, with a printing company that put millions on equipment and who can deliver according to the level we wanted.
In addition, we have the clothes ourselves and know that they are like a bitch and can withstand washing!

 

 

Can't get a name for a shirt? How else should I remember my name?

Absolutely! Selected garments have this particular opportunity (Look for "Custom" in the name), do you want to order a party to your cool gang or to you, the mum, the cardboard and the brother? Contact us directly via facebook or maximilian@raveklader.se and we will arrange it! <3

How to recover from a music festival?

How to recover from a music festival?

Imagine a week of constant standing on your legs, dancing in the early hours, a lot of drinking, quick meals, bedtime late (or early), depending on how you see it. Now the festival is over, and still there are only brands, blue-yellow feet, a few extra pounds on the body, a scorching neck, hardly any voice, pale, tired skin and the thought that you should never drink again. A music festival can take a hard time on one. Really hard.

It is not difficult to understand why.

Besides what we just mentioned, you are now back from a carefree world, you have dumped your bags on the floor and at the same time you feel that reality is creeping back. Most likely, you have been out camping for the past few days, drunk you drunk, danced and unleashed with your friends, happily unaware of the outside world. Glitter has been replaced with dust, facial color with face wash, queue from the beer halls, to sit in traffic chaos. Far away is the possibility of lying scattered on a grass field, staring at the stars. Instead, the focus is on setting the alarm to get up in time for the job. It's tough, but we've all been there. To make it less tough, we have put together this little mini-guide on how to restore yourself to a music festival.

Out and running with you (Cardio)

Yes it is true! Jump with you. Not only does it feel great to sweat it all unhealthy you stopped in you, let's say summerburst, but it actually helps you recover from all the alcohol you have consumed and can get you on your legs when you don't feel anything but bakis . When, after a weekend of drinking, you decide to hang on a spinning pass or go out to run, not only does your body burn calories, it also burns and sweats alcohol that is still in the body. So, if you start smelling vodka in the middle of your workout, just do your best and focus on getting through the moment.

Take a hearty shower

Numero uno - your smelly type. Expect a rather intense shower, especially if you are just home after a rave. You are surely covered by things you can't even identify with layers of dirt from intense days from an electronic music festival. Get ready to scrub off what you thought was a tan, and scrape off layers of glitter that apparently seemed permanent. It will be worth it, because as soon as you step out of the shower you will suddenly feel like a new person. At the same time you get the power and confidence that a reset is actually possible.

Appreciate your private toilet

Most likely, stomach and intestinal health may not be the most optimal after a music festival. You have put in alcohol and miscellaneous junk food and it is time for you to take advantage of your private surroundings in peace and quiet. For now, all of a sudden, the "bajjamajan" has been replaced by a full bathroom with a full toar roll, and no one who knocks on the door is disturbing you. Enjoy the moment!

Creep into a ball

The feeling of "freshly shuffled" is falling. You may begin to feel a painful pain that starts from the head and seeps through your limbs all the way to your fingertips and toes. Get to bed, or couch, crawl into a small ball, and rest your body and those tired legs.

Finally, restore the body

Drink plenty of water, eat something that is at least reminiscent of nutritious, and skip the coffee. At this team you should have restored yourself enough, with a straight back and fresh face, take the first steps and enjoy a work week in the "not so carefree" world.
