How much are tickets?
Festival ticket prices vary; however, the Festival Finder filter allows you to select a price point minimum and maximum and view festivals based on your budget. Prices are included across all festivals featured in the guides. Many have deposit scheme options so you can buy tickets now and then spread the cost over many months. Child tickets can often be free or much cheaper for family friendly events.
When do the festivals start?
Festival dates and starting times vary. Often it is around 12:00 (noon) each event day. For weekend camping options often the festival will have an early entry pass available for the campsite on Thursday so outdoor campers can set up early. Many weekend festivals will also have day ticket options for Friday, Saturday and Sunday and will allow you entry for that day.
Can I upgrade my festival experience to VIP and is it worth it?
Yes, we offer a variety of ticket types, upsells and VIP options for festival-goers. From picnics and early entry passes to collector tickets, luxury VIP experiences and more.
Go VIP – while VIP packages vary by venue, they often include early entry or exclusive areas, bars and food stalls, etc for you to enjoy across the festival.
What about travel? How do I get to the festival?
For some festivals, advance travel can be booked and parking passes can be purchased when you buy tickets. Some festivals also provide local shuttle buses to and from the location. At larger festivals, coach travel is also available from most major cities across the UK to the festival site.
Can I park my car there?
Most festivals offer up parking permits which can be booked alongside your tickets. This gives attendees access to an on-site carpark for the duration. You can also often buy campervan passes for weekend ticket events.
