Cheap festival tickets can be hard to come by. The price of music festivals has skyrocketed in recent years, with some of the larger festivals charging well over £200 for a weekend camping ticket.

The now-defunct V Festival was recently rated the worst value festival in the UK, at over £200 for just two days of music.

These amazing festivals can offer you a brilliant experience at a fraction of a cost, with tickets starting from just £79 for a full weekend experience.

It’s the friendly, party vibe that we create.. and that’s all of us – Crew, Public, Bands. There is no “back-stage” for VIP’s – the whole party is out the front and accessible to everyone. It’s a proper West Country Party.”
