For ZAPPAnale.Club members arriving from outside of Europe, Amsterdam is a great place to start your Zappanale adventure, adjust to the time change, and relax after your flight. For ZAPPAnale.Club members arriving from within Europe, Amsterdam offers alternative transportation hubs in which to arrive.

Why wouldn’t I just plan my own trip to Zappanale?

ZAPPAnale.Club has done the hard work for you. Booking lodging in town is almost impossible as this is the 30th year of Zappanale. Rooms in the small town of Bad Doberan are booked way in advance for this special event. Plus as a ZAPPAnale.Club member you are able to experience the entire festival including the elusive Backstage area, allowing you access to the bands, and the musicians visiting Zappanale.  Don't forget that Ike Willis will be your tour guide!

What makes the ZAPPAnale.Club tour so special?

ZAPPAnale.Club is only available to no more than 6 lucky Zappa fans per tour. With just a small group, you are assured of personal attention during the entire Zappanale experience. Plus you will hang out with Ike Willis the entire week!

Should I wear my best snake-leather boots or comfy high heels?

Well, you could bring them for festivities in and around town to look as stunning as you are but at the festival all weather shoes would be more fitting.

Should I pack my suitcase like I could use it as a walk-in closet?

Be sure to bring some pocket money with you and leave some space for some awesome gadgets and souvenirs, some records or hell, if you like it, a wood crafted couch or chair.
