Who is planning to come to the festival in Lokeren in August? I think it would be nice to have a meeting in Belgium too!

I was toying with the idea of going to this... but I think it is going to be too expensive. Antwerp is the closest airport I think? Flights to Brussels are much much cheaper... is it much further away?

I've just looked this up on Google Earth, and it appears Brussels is closer than Antwerp - and there's a direct train link from Brussels to Lokeren.

There's a direct link from London to Brussels via Paris... Eurostar goes there from St Pancras. Done it before, its not a bad journey! laugh

With ryanair you can fly from Glasgow to Brussels for about 85 (leaving friday, returning sunday, and the departures are not even at an killing 6.00am or so). The airport is actually in Charleroi, 60 km under Brussels, but I think you might get a free/reduced ride with you plane ticket (at least till Brussels). Antwerp airport is indeed not so cheap. I will be leaving from Antwerp (if anyone needs a ride, let me know and we'll see what's possible!)

Eurostar, leaving from London, is indeed a very good option. It's only 2 hours and you arrive directly in Brussels. The travell then costs about 60 from London to Brussels.

I visited Brussels in January! There is a bus to the city centre and its not too expensive! The bus leaves you right outside the main train station! wink laugh Might make it a tiring journey though.... :rolleyes: And not alot to do in Charleroi Airport too!

I am really looking forward to the show in Lokeren, Belgium. Since I come from The Netherlands, could not visit the gigs in the UK and Ireland. The festival in Lokeren is my only chance to see my heroes Midge, Billy, Chris and Warren for the first time together in my life. Wow, I hardly can't wait. laugh :rolleyes:

I already got my tickets for the 8th of August. I will travel from my hometown Deventer to Lokeren by train.

I have been a Ultravox-fan since the Vienna album. I have never seen the band in real life before. I only saw Midge Ure perform solo in Zaandam in The Netherlands in november 2000. It's very exiting to see the real Ultravox for the first time. A dream comes true.

A Voxgate in Lokeren would be nice. It would be my very first Voxgate then!

Greetings, Peter

Lynne and I will be driving over (well - I will - she can't drive!), will probably get the early morning ferry from Dover to Calais, so anticipate arriving in Lokeren about Mid-day.
It would be good to meet up, anybody know any suitable venues?

Wow, so much movement!!!

Folks, I really can't go (I could but can't, can't, can't..., no, I can't, won't etc.) BUT if I were you and were going to Lokeren, I wouldn't miss it to go to Duisburg as well!!! I know it sounds easy to say, my hometown being Koeln (Cologne) and knowing that the trains from Brussles to Cologne take only 2,5 hours (Thalys being most expensive), and from there to Duisburg only about 40 minutes (if I remember well).

For christ's sake, it's only once in a lifetime, and you've seen the reviews: it's absolutely stunning (umwerfend), THEY ARE, pure energy, tink-tink-tink-tink-tink etc.

JUST GO!!!

I can't (won't, won't, won't), ach! Reason vs. Emotion struggling inside of me, verdammt noch mal, godverdomme! Por dios!!!!

Well, however, I'll be thinking of you guys. Heb een lekker Belgisch bier op mij. ;-). (Yeah, I know it's wrong, please forgive, bedankt)

:-D
