For the most part, this year’s festival – the 42nd – will be much the same as ever but there is one major exception. For the first time the Saturday session will continue through the afternoon, something many of our customers have been asking for.
The Friday and Sunday sessions will remain substantially unchanged with Sunday as usual depending on the availability of beer.
The pricing needs to change as well, but alongside that we are offering an Early Bird discount of £2 on every ticket bought up to and including 23 June. Hopefully this will allow us to plan more effectively. So the shape of the festival will look like this:
Early Bird Tickets
7pm – 11pm – £8*
12pm – 9pm – £9* (all day)
4:30 – 9pm – £7* (evening only)
12pm – 3pm – Free entry
*Prices shown are applicable until Saturday 23 June; thereafter prices increase by £2 per ticket.
Bus tickets and camping permits
These can be bought at the same time as your entry tickets. Bus tickets cost £5 for as many journeys as you wish on Friday and Saturday (buses are free on Sunday). Bus tickets must be bought in advance as we cannot legally sell them on the bus.
Camping permits cost £5 per pitch (room for one vehicle and one tent or for two tents), and are valid for Friday night, Saturday night or both.
