Tickets and wristbands
Weekend wristband colours will indicate if you are entitled to camp or not so please make sure you book the correct tickets. We have a 3 tier weekend ticket system which is the fairest system we can adopt. As always, the earlier you buy your tickets, the cheaper they are.
Each tier has a limited number of tickets and when they’re gone, they’re gone so please book early! When tier 1 tickets have sold out the price will automatically change to tier 2 and so on.
Concessionary tickets (adult weekend tickets only)
Prices are tiered and like all other tickets, when they’re gone they’re gone. Please continue reading to find out if you qualify.
Concession tickets are for people aged 65+ (men & women), full time students, people claiming Universal Credit (UC), Jobseeker’s Allowance (JSA), Employment and Support Allowance (ESA) or Personal Independence Payment (PIP).
Customers requiring a carer may purchase a second weekend ticket at the concessionary price.
Please provide proof of entitlement when you collect your tickets, or the full price will be charged.
Proof of entitlement will be required when purchasing tickets during the festival weekend.
Wristband colours will indicate if you are entitled to camp or not so please make sure you book the correct tickets. Camping is charged at the standard rate (£27 per adult).
