Stockton Weekender tickets on sale Monday 10th February Posted on Fri 7th February 2014
Early Bird Weekend prices are Â£35 a day and Â£65 for camping.
Teesside’s biggest outdoor music festival, Stockton Weekender, returns for its fourth year on Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th July and event organisers Tees Music Alliance (TMA) have announced that Weekend tickets will go on sale on Monday 10th February.
The past three years have seen the fledgling festival steadily grow in size and stature; the two-day entertainment extravaganza has seen the likes of Primal Scream, Dexys, James, The Pogues, Maximo Park, Seasick Steve, Jake Bugg, Spiritualized, The Proclaimers, Kodaline, We Are Scientists, Django Django plus comedians such as Richard Herrin and Craig Campbell, perform for ecstatic crowds on the banks of Stockton’s River Tees.
TMA, a not-for-profit organisation, has revealed that discounted Weekend tickets will go on sale first, priced at £35 (subject to booking fees). As in previous years tickets will rise in price as the Weekender draws closer.
The family friendly shindig, which offers a children’s activity tent and is renowned for its relaxed atmosphere, will once more offer two free Under 14 tickets for every adult ticket purchased, and the option to camp also returns, an additional cost of £30 on top of a Weekend ticket price.
The Early Bird Weekend price will be available until Monday 31st March and on Tuesday 1st April, Day tickets will be released and Weekend prices will rise.
To help increase accessibility TMA have introduced the option to pay in instalments this year. Festivalgoers can reserve their tickets with a £10 deposit (per ticket) and then pay the rest off as they can, as long as it's all paid for by 25th July. This option is only available over the phone or in person and is subject to terms and conditions.
TMA Director Paul Burns said, “It’s been a tough year for festivals of our size and in particular those of us based in the North East. That’s why we never take our audience for granted and want to make paying for tickets as easy as we can.
We’re also working on a plan to reward locally based customers – which we’ll be revealing once the early bird period has finished. However, tickets won’t drop below the early bird prices – so we’re urging people to buy early.
Regular Stockton Weekender attendees won’t be disappointed with the line-up that we have planned for this year – we’re getting really excited by the confirmations coming through the office and can’t wait to begin making announcements once we have everything agreed with agents!” Announcements regarding line up are expected in the coming weeks.
Tickets are on sale from Monday 10th February, 10am. Early Bird Weekend prices are £35 a day and £65 for camping. Ticket prices will increase in price from 1st April onwards. Each adult ticket entitles the holder to 2 free Under 14s tickets. Tickets are available online from www.stocktonweekender.co.uk or call 01642 606525.
