Festivals Safety

Wear minimal jewellery, a cheapish watch, reduce wallet/purse contents to minimum.

Keep phones, money and compact cameras in different zippered pockets.

We don’t really need to say do not accept drugs or drinks from strangers, however charming/good looking they may be?

And take plenty of water with you!

Buying tickets for music festivals

The best musical events, whether they be jazz, folk, opera or rock festivals will be high octane, pricey and crowded.

Best to buy tickets as soon as they go on sale though some ticket sellers pass on most of their stock almost immediately to affiliated resellers who then sell them for a higher price.
Furthermore, some touts use high speed, multi-address software to grab all the tickets online as soon as they become available.

Calendar Dates are sometimes unconfirmed and occasionally unreliable, so check before booking. TBC/A = To Be Confirmed/Announced

Needless to say Covid-19 has caused many changes and cancellations so once you’ve selected a festival you want to attend go to the festival website to confirm it’s still happening, and check new regulations that may not suit you such as social distancing, mandatory masks etc. Hopefully 2021  will see successful vaccines and a new world order!
