Ranging from hardstyle to hardcore, rawstyle and more, this event has a stage for everyone! Main stage favourites Da Tweekaz, D-Block & S-te-Fan, Wildstylez and Brennan Heart regularly make an appearance at the annual celebration. Hardcore heroes Angerfist, Miss K8 and Korsakoff are also highly anticipated acts each year.

Pumpkin takes place in Germany’s favourite concert hall Turbinenhalle in Oberhausen (Im Lipperfeld 23, 46047 Oberhausen, Germany).
Oberhausen is easily accessible by car as well as public transport. The nearest major airport is Düsseldorf International Airport, which is just under 45 minutes south of the city. A generous amount of parking is also available at the venue.
Travelling to the event by public transport is the quickest and easiest option. Upon arrival at Oberhausen Central Station, a quick tram ride will transport you to Lipperfeld, where the venue is located directly outside.
Multiple Hotel options are available in the city of Oberhausen, however, there are no budget friendly options. A number of airbnbs are available in the city and are within walking distance of the venue.
Most visitors stay in the nearby major cities of Duisburg or Düsseldorf, which are a quick train ride away. As the event does run overnight, many visitors choose to travel directly to and from the event and do not require accomodation. Lockers are available at both Duisburg and Düsseldorf Central Station, to store luggage throughout the duration of the event.
There are many things about Pumpkin that stick out from your average festival. Located at the popular warehouse style venue, Turbinenhalle is known for it’s unique underground structure. Multiple rooms are connected by underground tunnels, giving visitors quick and easy access from stage to stage. Tunnels also connect to a chill out area, where a variety of local and international cuisine is available to purchase. You can enjoy photo walls, inflatable rides including a mechanical bull, and other activities in this area.
What sets BE24-7 events apart from the rest is their unique VIP offers. While a General Admission grants you access to the main areas of the event, a VIP upgrade has a range of enticing perks. Expedited entry, private bars and viewing decks are among the typical benefits but the most popular thing about this tier is the buffet! A VIP ticket grants you access to an exclusive buffet and open bar, without even having to leave the main stage! Traditional local cuisine is served alongside unlimited beer and non-alcoholic beverages. You can get all of these perks at a fraction of the cost of most one-day festivals.
