by a building society, bank or Post Office will also be accepted as payment.
DO YOU HAVE ANY TIPS FOR GETTING A TICKET?
Tickets are not allocated until payment is confirmed, so make sure you have all your
registration details (including postcodes) ready and checked in advance, and that there are
sufficient cleared funds on the card you intend to use to book, and that you know all the security
information for that card.
Be persistent and patient – there are likely to be more people trying to buy tickets than there are
tickets available, which would mean that not everyone who wants a ticket will be able to book
one. But the longer you try the more likely you are to get a ticket, so don't give up after the first
half an hour.
If you’re booking online, stick to one tab, in one window, so you can focus on entering your
details without confusing your browser or getting timed out. (Once you’re on the booking site you
have a maximum of 20 minutes to submit all your details; so if you have lots of tabs refreshing
the same page, the clock will start as soon as the first one of those tabs hits the site, which may
have been a window you weren’t keeping an eye on.)
I'VE MOVED HOUSE, CAN I UPDATE MY ADDRESS?
Yes, as long as you still have access to your registered email address you can edit your
address details online here. Alternatively, you can provide your new address for your tickets to be
delivered to when submitting your payment (this won't change the details on your registration
WHAT IF I NO LONGER HAVE ACCESS TO THE EMAIL ADDRESS I USED TO
You can't edit your email address, but you can provide an alternative email address for you
confirmation email to be sent to when submitting the payment for your ticket. This won't change
the details on your registration, but you will get your ticket. (And we'd recommend you setting up
a new registration, with the correct email address, for next year.)
WHEN WILL THE HEADLINERS / LINEUP BE ANNOUNCED?
