There was also an adult weekend ticket deposit scheme where a ticket can be secured for £55 with a final payment due in May.

An adult cannot be responsible for more than 4 under 18 year olds each. Proof of age for child tickets may be required on site. Live in vehicle tickets will be available at a later date.
There will be no day tickets this year.
Each year the festival grows organically both in production, vision and in Reggae Fans and this year is about Revolution.
One Love have also set up a Kickstarter campaign hoping to raise £40,000 in just 40 days to help make the event even better. The festival is urging reggae fans to help make history, and keep Reggae and One Love strong in UK.
The funds they hope to raise (if they do not reach their trget no money will change hands) will help to allow the event have more creative freedom, help them to grow, and allow organisers to make a fresh start.

More information will be here when available.
