Public Transport Saver Ticket Explained

Currently our only remaining Festival Entry Ticket available to purchase, in order to join us at Boomtown Chapter One: The Gathering is our Public Transport Saver Ticket option.  These tickets give you a discount on our standard price tickets but must be purchased in conjunction with a coach or shuttle pass. ⁠

Purchasing a Public Transport Saver ticket is a great thing to do to both lessen your impact on the environment and ease the journey home. As well as the discount and a reason to feel good about yourself; Public Transport Saver tickets also include Wednesday Entry absolutely free! All you have to do is choose a transport option that arrives on Wednesday. ⁠

If you're wanting to combine your Public Transport Saver ticket with some coach travel, the services run from over 50 locations around the UK!

Or, the shuttle, for those travelling by train, runs frequently from Winchester Train Station directly to the festival. The full timetable will be released in the Essential Guide in June.

Please remember you'll need to arrive at the festival by that mode of transport or your ticket will be invalid!⁠

I have bought a Public Transport Saver Ticket but my plans have changed and I want to drive or get a lift with someone, is that ok?
No, you must travel on the coach or shuttle in order for your Festival Entry Ticket to be valid upon entry. You will not be permitted entry to the festival if you have booked a Public Transport Saver ticket and do not travel on the coach or shuttle.

We offer discounted Public Transport Saver Tickets to coach travellers to encourage public transport. We calculate the size of our car parks based on coach package customers coming by coach. If all of these people were to drive, we would run out of space and our carefully planned traffic management systems would grind to a halt. Please don't do this.

I haven't received my Travel Ticket, what do I do?
Confirmation of booking will be emailed to the Ticket Buyer immediately after completing the booking. This is not your Travel Ticket, but confirmation of your booking. Your Travel Ticket will be emailed to the ticket buyer from our coach operator, National Express, in June.

The above information applies whether you have booked a Coach Only ticket or a Public Transport Saver Ticket with coach travel via the Boomtown/Ticket Sellers website (Festival Ticket + Coach Travel).

If you have booked a shuttle ticket you will receive an e-ticket alongside your entry ticket which is exchanged when you get on the Shuttle Bus at Winchester Station. This will be emailed to you with your entry tickets in June.
