The new was confirmed at Paul McCartney´s official website, where he wrote ‘I love a festival audience and we plan to close Pinkpop with a massive party. I’ve not done a festival in the Netherlands before, so it’s an exciting new experience for me and for the audience, so we can all rock out together.
