Questions and Queries
Please check the FAQ first.
An on-site ticket office phone number will be published here shortly before the Festival opens to the public.
This year we are not posting out physical tickets. You will receive a "Proof of Purchase" email when your booking transaction is complete. You will need to print the "Proof of Purchase" email and bring it with you to collect your wristbands on the gate.
Tickets can currently be purchased:
- Online by credit or debit card using the booking form below. Payment will be processed by PayPal (you don’t need your own Paypal account).
- By Post with a cheque. See Festival Concession Tickets & Postal Bookings, below.
Early Bird Tickets
We release a limited number of cheap full event adult tickets. The Early Bird catches the worm so get them while they are available.
Child/Young Person Tickets
Our children's area coordinator has written a letter for parents wanting to apply for authorised absence during term time. This initiative is supported by the the educational liaison officer of the Association of Independent Showman's organisation. Download and print this document to accompany a personal letter to your child's teacher.
Festival Concession Tickets & Postal Bookings
If you’re a student or in receipt of state benefits (other than universal benefits) you are entitled to apply for a concession ticket. There is only a concession price for full-event, adult tickets and we’ll ask you to email us a copy of proof of entitlement when you book your concession ticket. We will be unable to process concession bookings after Wednesday 4 July. (They are not sold at the Ticket Office on site. Note it will not be posible to validate your concession ticket on site, you will have to have emailed us proof of entitlement before the closing deadline.)
How to Apply for a Concession Ticket
Book a concession ticket using the form above. Take a picture of document(s) that demonstrate your entitlement per concession ticket. When you receive your "Proof of Purchase" email click on the validate ticket link and attach your picture demonstrating entitlement for that ticket. Send the email back to us and we will email you a "Proof of Purchase" email with the barcode that will give you entry to the festival.
How to Make a Postal Booking (Cheque Payments)
If you don’t have a credit/debit card you can send us a cheque: print a copy of the booking form.
Of the five fields we use for our Festival, two are used primarily for parking vehicles (the Rings and Reception Fields). We charge a fee per vehicle partly to help cover the costs of renting these fields and partly to buy tree saplings, which get planted on our own land, to go someway towards offsetting our carbon footprint.
Please consider using public or shared transport as far as possible.
Festival Weekend Tickets
We are very keen that people come for the whole event: the Festival is planned as a five-day experience, to build community and connection, which is diminished if significant numbers of people arrive later.
For Buddhafield 2018 we are not planning to sell any 'Weekend only' tickets this year.
Festival Day Tickets
These will be available on Sunday 22 July only from the Ticket Office on site (there is no advance purchase option). Adults (17+) £40; children and vehicles free.
Please check the website before you travel to the Festival: Day Tickets are sold proportional to numbers on site and will not be sold at all in bad weather.
Cash or cheque only: we are unable to accept payment by credit/debit card on site!
Please note there are no ATMs on site, bring your cash with you.
Festival Ticket Refunds
We’ll refund 80% the cost of your ticket(s), if you reply to your "Proof of Purchase" email requesting a refund before Thursday 5th July.
