FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions
How can I pay for food and drink at Jokerfest?
Jokerfest has its own money, the Thunderbike Dollar. This can be purchased and exchanged at easily recognizable points of sale. The Thunderbike Dollars are only issued at the Jokerfest, but can be used all year at the Thunderbike Roadhouse. The exchange rate is 1,50€ per dollar.
Does the daily program cost entry?
No, entry between 10.00 and 17.00 is free. A ticket is only required for the evening concert.
Can I reserve/reserve tickets for the evening event?
No, unfortunately for organisational reasons it is impossible for us to check tickets at the entrance in good time. In order to avoid longer waiting times, we cannot offer reservations.
Where can I get the concert ribbons?
The ribbons can be exchanged for tickets throughout the day. The wristbands will be exchanged at the regular entrance from about 18.00 on. This also applies to the VIP wristbands, which allow access to the Roadhouse roof terrace.
Are there any discounts for fan club members of the bands?
I am not yet of age, but I can still come to the Jokerfest?
Children up to the age of 16 are only allowed to attend the concert accompanied by a guardian. For young people aged 16 and over, admission to the concert after midnight will be granted without the accompaniment of a person with custody. We naturally comply with the provisions of the Youth Protection Act. This means that if you have a youthful appearance, your identity card will be checked at the alcohol counter if necessary.
What do disabled visitors have to pay attention to?
Visitors with disabilities who have an official ID with a B receive a free ticket for their accompanying person, while their own ticket has to be paid for regularly. Only one accompanying person is allowed. We also have on-site parking spaces for people with disabilities close to the site.
Are there any special safety requirements?
Of course, the carrying of weapons of any kind is strictly prohibited. Any danger to other visitors, in particular by crowd surfing or burning fireworks / Bengalos, is strictly prohibited and will lead to the exclusion of the event. With the exclusion the ticket loses its validity. Any claim for re-entry or reimbursement of the purchase price is excluded.
Where can I park my bike?
For the parking areas at the yard and the large parking lot at the Güterstraße we provide parking folders for you, which will show you how to park your bike. You can see everything else in our video about the parking situation.
Where can I park my car?
In dry weather our yard and gravel parking remain reserved for bikes during the day. In the late afternoon the gravel parking lot is also opened for cars. There are plenty of parking spaces available along the entire freight road, the Industriestraße (behind the railway line) or the sports field in Hamminkeln.
