Download 2020 Ticket FAQ

How do I receive a refund for my 2020 ticket?

Ticketmaster have sent an email with details of the refund process to all ticket holders; if you have not already received this, please check your junk folder.

Ticketmaster has started to process refunds for Download 2020 tickets. Due to the extraordinary circumstances and the amount of bookings to process, this is taking longer than expected. The latest you can expect to receive your refund will be 1st May 2020.

Unauthorised Ticket Agents and Ticket Touting

Beware of unauthorised ticket agents and individual re-sellers  (including tickets offered on eBay, Gumtree and Craigslist, Instagram and Facebook and re-sale sites such as Viagogo and Stubhub), buying from them can be a lot of trouble. It’s possible you’ll pay over the odds for a ticket that may have never existed or might never materialise.

If you have been the victim of a ticket scam please report the website to Action Fraud.

We have compiled a guide to avoiding touts and unauthorised websites and agents. We recommend you DO NOT BUY from these sites. We the promoter (Festival Republic) have not supplied any of these sites with any festival tickets and cannot guarantee the authenticity of any tickets they may be offering for sale.  For more information see our Anti Tour Guide.

If you would like confirmation that a website is authorised or not, you can call our information line on 020 7009 3001.

We monitor the internet and do what we can to prevent fraudulent activity but the best way to prevent fraud is to not risk buying from unauthorised sources..
