…….UPDATE…..2021 festival weekend ticket prices held at early bird prices…..UPDATE……We have held weekend ticket prices at the early bird rate providing a significant saving to customers. Tickets are available to purchase at the prices set out on this page.

If you bought tickets for the 2020 festival, the Apex will have been in touch with you about rolling over your tickets or securing a refund. Details of how to book tickets and ticket prices for the 2021 festival are set out below. A couple of items to note:
• Anyone wishing to camp and bring their dog will need to book a camping pitch on campsites 1 or 4 as the rugby club has introduced a no dog policy on their land. Well-behaved dogs will ofcourse continue to be welcome in the festival arena area and campsites 1 and 4.
• Children under 12 years old get free access when accompanied by a ticket-buying adult.

Details about the various ways you can book tickets are set out below. Check out our EFF-ticket-booking-guidance 2020 amended word version (1) ((this is still valid for the 2021 festival) to help you book festival tickets and camping pitches.
