If you see tickets advertised anywhere other than official outlets you stand a good chance of getting ripped off. This is because the terms and conditions of sale and entry state that tickets are non-transferable, which means that once purchased you can’t sell them on to others for profit. If you do buy from an unauthorised source you stand a good chance of being refused entry. Festival Republic will be unable to assist you if you have bought from an unauthorised source, as we will have no purchase history available for the ticket.
All event tickets are checked by our staff at entry to the event and again at the wristband exchange for camping shows – any forged tickets will be confiscated from you, you will not be permitted to the event and you may face questioning from the police. To be as safe as you can and to avoid obtaining a suspect ticket, follow these simple guidelines:
Do not buy from an unofficial ticket agent – see our list of authorised agents below.
- Do not buy from internet auction sites.
- Do not buy a ticket online without seeing its face value.
- Do not pay more than the authorised standard booking fee per ticket. These are displayed on the authorised sites.
- If you live in the UK do not buy from a website with an overseas office address or with no registered address shown.
- Do not buy from another individual or tout, either in advance in your home town, or outside the event If you ignore these pointers you are likely to pay a lot of money for something worthless as your ticket will be invalid.
