How Much Is Your Festival Ticket Really Worth?

rexfeatures_1204217e.jpg

Love it or loathe it, we’re officially stepping into festival season. Those bustling months where men start taking a slightly unhealthy interest in straw trilby hats and everyone decides that actually, we’ve always really liked Mumford and Sons - all in between creating a roadtrip playlist consisting in the large of Buck Rogers by Feeder and Mr Brightside by the Killers.

For the next few weeks, you’re officially the biggest music fan since Michael Eavis. At least, that is, until you get home from a sludgy weekend of dancing in a field and go over your bank balance.

Did you really spend £18.00 on a falafel that didn’t even look like a falafel? Yes, yes you did. And didn’t you only spend £4.00 to see Florence and The Machine the first time around in Camden? Probably.

Created by those thrifty folk at VoucherCodes.co.uk, here’s a round-up of the best value UK festivals that give you some serious bang for your buck compared to what it would cost you to see each headline act individually. Glastonbury-bound? You've done well. End of the Road? Best skip this one.
