Best value British festivals

Festival-hero.jpg

Camping. A holiday for the tight-fisted, a lifestyle choice for the free spirited nomadic. But stick a couple of stages in the same field for some high profile musicians to strut about on and the cost of a weekend in a tent can rival that of a wine-fuelled holiday on the Costa del Sol.

The ever helpful bargain lovers at VoucherCodes.co.uk have compiled the following infographic detailing the best value British festivals.

The total saving of each festival is worked out by comparing a weekend ticket price with the accumulated cost of seeing each festival's nine major headline acts perform individually.

Despite its tent-pitching £205 ticket price, Glastonbury is the runaway leader, as seeing the likes of The Rolling Stones, Rita Ora and Primal Scream would damage your wallet by a whopping £462.66 - about the same price as buying your own field (we've never bought a field, but £462.66 sounds about right).

Check out the ten best value festivals below.
