Bestival: Chance to save money on tickets

People on the Isle of Wight will be able to save money on Bestival tickets on Saturday.

BESTIVAL fans on the Isle of Wight will be able to get their hands on a limited number of discounted tickets this Saturday.

'Islander Day' will give Islanders the chance to buy tickets for the September event, without having to pay the usual booking fee or postage costs, meaning a saving of around £10 a ticket.

They will be available from outlets across the Isle of Wight, including the County Press shop, in Pyle Street, Newport.

Tickets will remain on sale at those outlets after Saturday, but will be subject to the usual charges.

Foals, Outkast and Nile Rodgers are set to headline this year's Desert Island Disco themed event, which takes place from September 4 to 7.

Tickets will be available from:

•         The Bugle Inn, Yarmouth

•         Harwoods, Yarmouth

•         The Bonchurch Inn, Bonchurch

•         Lugley’s, Cowes

•         The White Lion, Niton

•         Old Village Inn, Bembrudge

•         The Pointer Inn, Newcurch

•         Caulkheads, Sandown

•         Isle of Wight County Press Shop, Newport

•         Robin Hill Country Park

•         Valentine Gray Bar, Newport

Adult tickets cost £195.

why should islanders have to pay the same costs as people who don't live here anyway? £10.00 isn't saving anything off the cost of the ticket just the admin costs of buying one. come on rob d bank and all the other organisers there are hundreds of us living on the island quietly putting up with all that goes with the festivals but having to sit back and dream of going because £195.00 x4 £780.00 ( my family ) is out of our reach.

I imposed a ban on myself reading any CP articles, let alone commenting on them. It is like Groundhog Day on here: free adverts posing as "news", opposition to building and eco projects, school "issues" and articles about ferries, Island Roads, Southern Vectis et cetera. Thought I'd try again today and what do I find? Yep....
