The countdown has begun for Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles’ VW Bus Festival 2023.
It will be the biggest meet of its kind anywhere in the world: from 23 to 25 June 2023, organisers Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles are expecting over 100,000 visitors from all corners of the globe.
The VW Bus enthusiast community will party together, listen to live music, talk shop and camp out for three days – a festival as an expression of an approach to life.
Advance sales of the camping tickets can be booked from 12 noon on 15 August 2022.
When: 23 - 25 June, 2023 Where: Hanover Fairground Tickets: Camping ticket prices start from 29 euros for the whole weekend. Included in this is a pitch for a Bus or other VWCV vehicle, free access to the camp site’s sanitary facilities and free access to the festival grounds featuring various exhibitions, a parts market and a large stage with a varied supporting programme. Up to three further people can be added to the booking. Anyone wanting to book a special area for families can do. Children aged up to 6 get in for free. Children and teens aged up to 17 pay just 15 euros for the weekend. Sales of single-day tickets (without vehicle) will begin at a later date.
Just like at the legendary ‘Bulli Festival’ in 2007, the exhibition car parks will become a campsite for more than 6,000 VW camper vans and Microbuses.
The 2007 VW Bus Festival with thousands upon thousands of fans ranks to this day as the greatest VW Bus event ever.
Current and historic VW camper vans and Microbus models are equally welcome – from the T1 and all its successors all the way to the new Multivan with plug-in hybrid drive and the completely new ID. Buzz.
Lars Krause, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles brand board of management member for sales and marketing said: “This interaction between all the diverse VW Bus models of all eras is at the soul of the community.
“We’re delighted that 16 years after the last festival, this globally unique automotive phenomena will again be given a stage in 2023.
