G-CARDS

This year we will again use an electronic payment system. ALL event purchases, including bars, food and rides will be by G-CARD - it's a cashless event. Click here to find out more about G-CARDS. To avoid queues when you arrive, we recommend that you buy at least one G-CARD in advance. You'll be able to top up your G-CARD at the festival by debit or credit card as well as by cash.

BOOKING FEES AND POSTAGE COSTS

We charge a booking fee of £5 per order - this covers credit/debit card commissions, and also our administration costs in processing and dispatching your order. It's a flat fee per order, not per ticket. It means it's cost effective for you to buy all the tickets for you and your friends in one go, including camping, buses etc - if you buy five entry tickets in one order it works out at just £1 per person, which is far lower than any other online ticket purchasing facility we know of.

Up until Monday 19 August we also charge £5 for postage to get your tickets and vouchers to you securely by Royal Mail 'Signed For' Delivery.(After that they're ket for collection on arrival). In the past we've used lower-cost postage methods and it's not been terribly reliable - some people have not received their tickets and it's been a lot of hassle for everyone. The system we're using this year includes online tracking, so even at the festival itself we'll know whether each set of tickets has been received.  Again, this is a fixed fee per order, so it makes sense to group your purchases so you only pay postage once.

We've explored using external ticket agencies for dispatch but worked out that overall it would cost you a lot more and give us less control over the process, so decided against it.

We've improved the online shop system this year, so after placing your order you can log in again and add to the order (eg more entry tickets for friends, or buying additional vouchers or camping tickets) - provided this is before your original order has been dispatched. This should mean you only need to pay one lot of booking and postage fees. You can also now change your order - take items out and replace them with different ticket types.
