The best ways to buy festivals tickets

Here’s how you can split the cost across your festival tickets so you can miss the dread of your bank account but don’t miss the memories in the fields.


DOn’t miss out on another festival

It’s that time of year – all the stellar line-ups are dropping, your favourite artists playing lots of festivals across the UK and the choice is tough. What shouldn’t be a tough choice is deciding whether or not to go to a festival this year. With living costs rising it can be hard to commit to a weekend ticket with all the bells and whistles, and whilst that is THE best way to experience a festival, you shouldn’t miss out on being part of the summer fun. So we put together ways to split your festival ticket costs, or make your festival experience more affordable without losing any of the bliss.

1. Payment plans

Many festivals offer payment plans or deposit schemes that let you split your ticket into 4, 5, 6 or more payments that you can plan in every month. Paid off by the time you walk through the gates so it’s basically free – festival math, stay with us.

2. Pay In Three

Similar to payment plans but you can use PayPal and Klarna options at checkout up until the day before the festival and still have three months to pay off. One for all you last festival people out there!

3. Day tickets

Can’t quite make up your mind if you want to commit to the whole weekend? Why not check out that new festival with a day ticket! They tend to be affordable, usually similar to an arena or stadium gig and you get a lot more artists in one day, so win win.

4. Girl math

Not an official payment method, use at your own risk but technically if you bought your tickets in 2023 they are free now because that was last year’s money. And 100+ bands across a whole weekend for £250 is £2.50 per band, with an average set of 30 minutes, that is £0.08 per second so essentially the music is free. Girl math, you’re welcome!

Note: Terms and conditions apply to all payment options and ticket types, so make sure to read them thoroughly before purchasing. Contact our CS team if you have any questions.
