Both weekend and day tickets for BLOODSTOCK 2018 are selling very quickly, with weekend tickets looking very likely to sell out before festival weekend. As they currently stand, day tickets are likely to be still available over the course of the weekend but we do recommend purchasing in advance where possible to avoid on-the-day disappointment. For those of you leaving it to the last minute to get your Bloodstock tickets, here's a quick rundown on how it works...
BUYING YOUR TICKETS ONLINE AND AT THE FESTIVAL GATE
If you have not yet bought your tickets via the Bloodstock store, you can do so right up to and during festival weekend. However, tickets purchased after 9.00am Friday 3rd August will not be posted out, they will be dispatched to the box office at the festival gate for collection. If you purchased your tickets before 9.00am Friday 3rd August, you should receive them by Wednesday 8th August at the very latest. If you’ve not received your ticket by this date, then please contact SEE Tickets customer service directly.
COLLECTING PRE PAID TICKETS ON THE FESTIVAL BOX OFFICE
We will send all tickets purchased after 9.00am Friday 3rd August by special courier to the Bloodstock festival box office for you to collect, so the standard postal fee will still apply to tickets purchased online, to cover courier costs.
BRING PROOF OF PURCHASE!
When collecting tickets at the onsite box office, we will require proof of ticket purchase from the Bloodstock shop including a printed out email receipt, the actual card or a copy of the card you purchased your ticket with or some form of identification such as drivers licence or utility bill showing your name and address.
Please Note: Weekend car parking tickets will be on sale via the Bloodstock online store only until 9.00am on Friday 3rd August at the price of £16, after which you can only purchase them at the Car park box office on site priced at £20. One Day parking will increase from £12 to £15 on the gate, so we advise upfront purchasing online to save yourself a few pounds. If you purchase festival tickets at the gate, IF any weekend tickets remain available (a big IF), they will increase from £145 to £155 for adults and from £35 to £40 for children. Adult Day tickets increase from £65 to £70 on the gate and Child Day tickets will increase from £20 to £25.
SERPENTS LAIR ‘VIP’ CAMPING
TRAVELLING BY CAR - For those who are travelling by car, please follow the signs to the Serpents Lair VIP Car Park situated directly across the road from the campsite. On arrival at the car park, please have your VIP camping ticket ready to present to the steward who will then issue you with a VIP Car parking pass. Once parked up, you can then collect your wristbands from the box office in the VIP car park and make your way to the Serpents Lair VIP campsite directly across the road. VIP Goody bags will need to be collected this year from the Bloodstock merchandise stall in the main arena from 5pm Thursday. Should you have too much luggage to carry in one journey, we will have free trolleys available for use, providing you leave a fully refundable deposit of £20 (you'll get your £20 back when you return the trolley). Please note there are temporary traffic lights in operation for your safety at the crossing from the car park to the campsite. Please use them.
TRAVELLING BY TAXI OR COACH – For those who are travelling by Taxi or Coach and not using the Serpents Lair VIP Car Park, to save you having to double back to the car park to get accredited, please make your way to the Guest/Media Box office to collect your wristbands.
If you have upgraded from Standard Weekend + camping to Serpents Lair VIP camping, remember to bring both the standard weekend ticket AND the upgrade ticket or you will be refused entry. You will also need to bring proof of ID, such as a driver’s licence or a utility bill showing your name and address.
