A tiered ticket system is in place this year, which means the sooner people buy tickets, the cheaper the price. Tier 1 weekend tickets are now getting low so organisers are urging people to buy soon before stock runs out.
Coun Sarah Ferriby, Executive Member for Environment, Sport and Culture, said: “This year’s line up is amazing. With so many great acts across all three days, I’m sure people will have difficulty in choosing which day to get tickets for.
“With the Tier 1 tickets running low I would urge people to get their tickets bought sooner rather that later.”
