Weekend Tickets/Wristbands – allow access to campsites from 3am Thursday 22nd August until midday on Monday 26th August and access to the arena on all show days. Weekend wristband allows unlimited re-entry to and from the site for the holder. There is no re-entry on ticket alone. We do not sell a weekend ticket without camping.

Day Tickets – are valid for entry from 11.00am – midnight on the day the ticket is valid for. Day tickets are not valid for camping even if the customer buys one day ticket for each day. Limited number available from limited agents. Day wristbands are valid until the arena closes each day. There is no readmission through the outer gates on day tickets/wristbands. Day wristbands are permitted re-entry to the arena from the village area.
Day ticket holders should be aware that some of the stages are tented and have limited capacities. Tickets holders should allow ample time to enter and find the stage their favourite acts are playing to arrive early enough to ensure the tents are not already full.
On site Box Office & Ticket Collection facilities.
Pre-paid ticket collections on site are from the Box Offices situated close to the Red and Green Gates entrances for those arriving by car and from the Yellow Gate entrance for those arriving by shuttle bus/public transport.
No one will be able to camp without a Weekend Camping wristband. You will not be able to camp with a Day Wristband. No rogue camping will be tolerated. No under 16’s can camp unless they are accompanied by an adult over 18. There are a number of campsites but customers do not need to specify where they want to camp before they arrive at the festival.
There is no Children’s or Family Camping areas. We would suggest that this event is not suitable for young children. Children aged 12 and under do not need a ticket and will not be issued with an entry wristband but must be accompanied by a ticket holding adult over 18. There are Tyvek (paper) wristbands at the Information and Welfare points for children if parents wish to write a contact phone on them in case they are separated from their child.
Once they have purchased their own ticket, customers must visit the Leeds website to apply for access to the disabled facilities on site. For further details about our 2-for-1 ticket scheme they can email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0207 009 3490.
