Festival Entry Tickets

All prices on this page are not inclusive of booking fees.
Public Transport Saver Festival Entry Tickets
Public Transport Saver Festival tickets are cheaper than standard Festival Entry tickets and include the option to come on Wednesday for no extra cost!
They can only be purchased with a coach ticket, shuttle bus (from Winchester train station) ticket or the Big Boomtown Bike Ride cycle experience ticket. Please help us reduce our carbon footprint and consider travelling to the festival in a more sustainable way.
