What is the difference between the numbered tiers?
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 before hearing the lineup. 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 tier 1 and 2. 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/cycle ticket at the same time in order to buy a tier 1 or 2 public transport ticket.
If you are coming by train, you need a tier 3 public transport ticket. You need to add a shuttle bus ticket to your basket to get it. Alternatively, get a standard ticket if it works out cheaper for you.
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. You can check my guide to all the different campsites if you need help finding your way around. 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 is in the same location as last year, and is open from Wednesday.
- Campervan Meadow is only for those with accessibility needs or disabilities.
- Campervan Family is for families with children.
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 19th of June 2020, 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.
Boomtown Springs & Camp Skylark
VIP camping and glamping options will be announced on the 3rd of December 2019. Big changes are expected, so stay tuned.
