Tickets are priced as follows:

Friday £42
Saturday £59
Sunday £59

Full weekend ticket £160 (Friday, Saturday and Sunday)

postage included.

The first 500 people purchasing FULL weekend tickets will also receive a ticket to a FREE ACOUSTIC Night featuring an extremely well known internationally acclaimed musician performing hits and covers in an up close and personal show lasting ... well for as long as you like really. Now when we mention 500 tickets, this will be SPLIT over 2 nights; the first night is Friday October 18th starting at 10.30 pm , the second night is Saturday October 19th starting at 10.30pm. There will be 250 tickets for EACH NIGHT. The first 250 people purchasing tickets for all three days will receive after show acoustic tickets for Friday, the second 250 will receive tickets for Saturday. You will NOT be able to purchase a ticket to the acoustic shows separately. You will only receive acoustic show tickets with the purchase of a FULL WEEKEND TICKET (Friday, Saturday and Sunday). You will receive one acoustic show ticket per each full weekend ticket purchased. For example if you buy 3 full weekend tickets, you will receive 3 acoustic show tickets.

As mentioned this is only available for the first 500 tickets purchased. For the 2012 show which took place in October just gone, 500 tickets were sold in 48 hours from launch. Please remember, once we reach 500 full weekend tickets sold, there will be no more acoustic tickets available.

And just to add a bit of spice to that, anyone holding a Friday night Acoustic Show ticket can use that same ticket as entry to the meet and greet on Saturday with that day’s headliner. Anyone holding a Saturday night acoustic show ticket can use that ticket as an entry to the meet and greet on Sunday with that day’s headliner.

Knowing many of you have used PayPal in the past, which is an instant payment, and the fact that this option is NOT AVAILABLE for the 2013 show, we would like to offer you the opportunity to ‘get in early’. If you wish to take a chance and purchase tickets BEFORE the line up is announced on December 9th, we will be accepting payments from Monday December 3rd in order to allow for the longer delivery times involved in using the various postal services around the world. If you wish to wait until after December 9th that is just fine also...we are just offering the option.

So there you have it . The Firefest 10th anniversary show.

October 18-20 2013
- 3 Days
- 19 Bands
- 2 Acoustic shows

... and more fun than you can shake a stick at. Remember it’s YOUR SHOW ... please spread the word!
