If the cost of a festival ticket in these hard times seems far too high and too much to even comprehend then those very lovely people at Camp Bestival and Ticketline have come up with a fantastic payment plan so that you can stagger coughing up the full admission fee. Instead of paying the full £130 for an Adult Weekend Ticket with camping all in one hit, you can opt to pay via the Ticketline Payment Plan option over 3 easy concurrent payments of £43.33 plus booking fee. Other tickets are also available as part of the same cunning plan including Family and NUS.
PJ Harvey, Mercury Rev, Chic feat. Nile Rogers, Bon Iver, Candi Staton, Roots Manuva and Hayseed Dixie have all been confirmed for this year's festival which runs from 24th to 26th July inclusive at the beautiful setting of Lulworth Castle in Dorset (nearest town is Wareham). So now that the organizers have sorted out your finances for you, what have you got to lose? It remains to be seen whether other festival operators follow suit to encourage festival fans to decide to go or stay at home and count the cost.
