Fraud prevention, ticket scams and unauthorised agents

Beware of unauthorised ticket agencies (including eBay, Gumtree, Viagogo, and Stubhub). Action Fraud have some good advice on how to spot a fraudulent ticket and how to report it. We do not sell tickets at the event site. Do not buy from ticket touts as you are unlikely to get in with whatever they sell you.

Resident Tickets

There are no tickets for local residents available.

Wristband Exchange

All tickets must be exchanged for a wristband on first entry.

WEEKEND TICKETS/WRISTBANDS

These allow access to campsites from Thursday, 23rd August 2018 until close of campsite on Monday, 27th August 2018 and access to the arena on all show days. Weekend wristbands allow unlimited re-entry to and from the site for the holder. There is no re-entry on ticket alone. We do not sell Weekend Tickets without camping.

Your Wristband

You have one job over the weekend, just one: don’t lose or try to undo your wristband. They can’t be replaced and if they’ve been tampered with you may be evicted.

Here are a few tips on looking after your wristband:

1. When our staff are putting it on, don’t let it hang loose around your wrist. Keep it snug.
2. Don’t cut it, burn it, draw on it, tamper with it.
3. If you lose your wristband and are outside the arena go to the nearest wristband exchange gate for help. If you’re inside the arena go to the arena entrance and ask for help.

Campervan Passes

These can be purchased in advance from our tickets page or on the gate if there’s space available. These will have a higher price. All customers will be sent a sticker to go on their windscreen and will be unable to gain admittance with just a campervan ticket or booking confirmation page. All vehicle occupants must be Weekend Ticket holders to be able to access the campervan area.

Age Restrictions

We welcome all ages to the festival. However, there are entry restrictions for under 16s and we do advise not bringing young children. Anyone 15 and under must be accompanied by a ticket holder over 18 years old at all times. Children under 13 years are admitted free. ID may be required upon entry to the event.

Please bring ID if you look under 21 years old and remember that legally there is no automatic right to be served alcohol. Service is always at the discretion of the licensee for whatever reason they decide, and the licensee is under no obligation to explain the reason.

Please bring the original document as you won’t be able to use a photocopied version. If you don’t have any of these, or don’t want to lose valuable documents on site, we suggest that you apply for a PASS approved ID, some of which are free to get.

Young Children

Whilst we do allow under 13s to attend for free, we do suggest that this event is not suitable for young children. If you do want to bring children along we advise camping in the White Campsite which is expected to be our quietest campsite.

On entering the event, children will be given Tyvek wristbands which have a space on the inside for you to write your name and telephone number (as a parent or guardian). We can use this as a primary contact to reunite you. Replacements can be picked up at the Welfare Tent or the Information Points.
