In the event of cancellation due to coronavirus, you are entitled to a refund, as per the terms and conditions on the official website:

There are several different instalment plans available. These are designed to take advantage of the VAT rate cut for the events industry. The sooner you can pay off your ticket, the less tax, and therefore the cheaper your instalment plan. Please see the ticket page for the latest instalment plan details.
Most tickets are subject to a £7.50 booking fee, and £10 refundable ecobond, returned when you hand in a bag of litter/recyclables at the end of the festival.
What is the difference between the numbered phases?
Only the price. Ticket’s are cheaper for those who buy them the furthest in advance, in order to generate some hype for the festival and shift tickets. It also rewards loyal fans of the festival, who want to lock in for next year early. And it helps the festival out too, with some cash flow to get the acts booked, and the elaborate stages/sets built.
What is the difference between public transport and standard tickets?
You have to arrive by coach or bicycle to use a public transport ticket. Your ticket will be validated, and if you don’t arrive by public transport, you’ll have to pay the difference at the box office. You have to buy a coach ticket/train shuttle ticket/cycle ticket at the same time in order to buy a public transport ticket.
It’s environmentally conscious, avoids the hassle of needing to drive home hungover, and you save some money on your ticket too. All public transport tickets also include entry on Wednesday totally free of charge.
What’s the deal with Wednesday tickets?
Everyone with a public transport ticket can arrive on Wednesday at no extra cost. If you are coming by car, you can arrive on Wednesday for £20 extra on a standard price ticket per person.
Since 2019, all campsites are now open on Wednesday. New for 2020, car sharing is no longer mandatory on Wednesday.
What about my campervan?
Tickets cost £100 again this year. You need to select which type of campervan you want at time of purchase.
- Campervan overlooks the festival and is open from Wednesday.
- Campervan Meadow is only for those with accessibility needs or disabilities.
Car parking tickets?
All car parking is £26, regardless of which day you arrive, and which car park you use. You will be directed to a car park upon arrival, please follow the directions given on signage and by the stewards. If you follow your sat-nav instead of the road signs, you will get lost. Trust.
Car parking tickets are only on sale until the 22nd of June 2021, so don’t leave this until the last minute.
What is an ecobond?
£10 will be added to the cost of every Boomtown 2019 ticket. Everyone has a responsibility to clean up their own mess. And when you hand in a bag of your rubbish/recyclables at the end of the festival, your £10 will be returned.
Day tickets, ID, and under 18’s
- Day tickets are not available, but you can buy a weekend ticket and only come for a smaller part of the festival if you prefer.
- The name on the ticket must match your ID. ID checks are now strictly enforced, so don’t chance it.
- Only adults can be admitted with an adult ticket and ID is strictly checked. If you are under 18, you need the correct ticket, and to be accompanied by an adult.
